As a member of the Las Vegas Police Department's SWAT team, Cole has seen his fair share of danger, but he's never taken a chance on love. He's willing to have some fun when the mood strikes him, but he's married to the job. Called in on a hostage situation, Cole is prepared for anything and everything…except for the brave and beautiful Brett.
Brett has been burned before, most recently by Officer Parker McLean. He's hoping to settle down in Vegas, perhaps find someone he can build a life with. The last thing Brett's looking for is another man in uniform. But when he meets Cole, there's an attraction that can't be denied. Still, he hadn’t expected to fall for the chiseled alpha.
What begins as nothing more than two people experiencing a great night together spirals into something far deeper. But will Brett be able to handle the stress that comes with having a lover who constantly puts his life in jeopardy? And can Cole risk his heart on an everyday hero, or will the job he knows so well remain his top priority?

Publisher's Note: This book is best read as part of a series but can be read as a standalone.
Held Hostage by Morticia Knight was so much more than a tale about a SWAT member, his team and the man he’d fall in love with. Ms. Knight delivered a tale of personal demons which internally hold a person hostage and unable to form lasting loving relationships. Of all the Sin City Uniforms books, Held Hostage conveyed a bit of darkness and sadness that the other books did not have.
Cole was a complicated man. Determined to adhere to his strategic life plan, all which goes by the wayside when he meets Brett, newly transplanted to the Las Vegas area. Both men carry baggage, making it difficult to open to something more.
Cole especially was closed off and slightly self-absorbed, although Ms. Knight gave him a depth that explained his demeanor and soon endeared me to his character. Brett, dealt the short end of the deck of cards in his life, was determined to get past all his upheavals and find happiness.
The two men developed their own form of a loving relationship~ Ms. Knight you had me worried that I wouldn’t get my
HEA. No fears. Morticia
Knight delivered an HEA—
albeit along the hard road—one with hot and steamy sex and a personal growth
for Cole and Brett which led them into each other’s arms.
