Meet the men in uniform. These are everyday men who put on a uniform and become our heroes. Through good times and bad, they are there to save the day, sacrificing more than most of us can imagine as they put their lives on hold in service to us.
Love doesn’t wait until life is calm, and sometimes it’s the pressure of the job that throws two men together. Under stress and demand, they find solace in each other, forming bonds that can’t be ignored.
Follow our heroes as they fight not only for what is right and just, but also for their hearts and the men they love.
Recruited – Brenda Cothern
Brenda always writes about tough alpha males and Slade and Knight are very tough and all alpha. Knight is having the day from hell on the vice unit and it’s not the perps that are making his life difficult. The rest of the office, in fact the rest of the station, is getting a buzz winding him up over his name. It went past funny weeks ago but when someone messes with his truck it’s a step too far.
Slade is witness to the disregard and bigoted attitude Knights boss shows him and he doesn’t blame the man for storming out. Slade is there to give Knight the good news that he has been recruited for a new job but can’t get the man to calm down enough to tell him. Between punch bags, sizzling attraction and a little bit of dominance Slade needs to show Knight he is on his side and he’s not the bad guy. This pair are hot together!
The Last Easy Day – Whitley Gray
This is a rather bittersweet story about two young men just hours from starting their BUD/S training. A quick bathroom hook up sees JJ and Kurt’s lives become entwined for the next decade. The next few years aren’t kind as they both try to pursue careers whilst hiding a part of themselves. For me it was a bit tragic but obviously their feelings for one another ran deep. They deserved their HFN and I hope they get their HEA eventually.
Love Undercover – E M Leya
Nick has been deep undercover in a bike gang for so long that he’s started counting the days until he can get his life back. Just a few more months……
Then he arrives back at the clubhouse to find a cop tied up and with a gun at his head. His heart sinks as he recognises it to be his ex-lover, a man he has never forgotten about and he is determined to get him out of this mess no matter what. This short takes you into the seedy gang life as we watch Nick try to save his own life and also the life of the man he wants a second chance with.
Hand to Hand

When Jack is sent home to mend his team take turns bringing food and keeping his spirits up but when it’s Gavin’s turn to spend time with him more happens than they had planned. Both men are tentative, a little shy and unsure of how to proceed and when their team finds out Jack panics. There follows a very funny conversation between Gavin and his teammate Noah! It seems all it will take is a little forward planning, some honest conversation and Gavin being devious to get Jack to admit his feelings – but where do they go from there?
One More Time
This was quite an emotional short story involving cop William Jacoby a man pretty set in his ways who would do anything for you. He has a dilemma that comes in the form of Brannon Frost, a young man he has watched grow up over the years and who one day makes it obvious that he sees more in William than just a friend. William, who has always considered himself straight, panics and starts avoiding the young man at all costs.
When Brannon has to deal with a tragedy things are no longer so black and white and he needs Williams support more than William needs to carry on avoiding him. It’s a slow burn romance with a bit of teasing but I love how protective William becomes, when the man makes a decision he puts everything behind it and he loves hard.
This story starts with a bang as Dixon is betrayed in the worst way and he sees his future break before his eyes. Pulling himself back together he is determined to carry on and throws himself into the thought of getting through his Buds Training and becoming a Seal.
Kyle Sauter has wanted to become a Seal since childhood when he watched the men training from afar. He is desperate to please his father and hides more than one part of his life from the older man to ensure he stays in his good books.
This is a story of friendship, of growing up and of fighting your fear to become who you really are. Dixon and Kyle have such different families and support systems as becomes apparent towards the end but they also have each other and that counts for more than anything.
