Book Name: Love in Uniform
Release Date: November 11, 2015
There’s just something about a man in uniform…whether it’s the delivery man bringing a special package to your door, the airline attendant taking care of your every need, or the cop with a set of handcuffs on his belt and a gleam in his eye, Love in Uniform provides fodder for every fantasy.
The Encounter – Hoping to escape the hot dance floor at a crowded club, a pilot finds himself wandering a dark secluded hallway. He’s pleased to see a table, but he’s startled when a shadow moves. Suddenly face to face with his ideal man candy, the pilot discovers the beauty of strangers and the thrill of sex in public places.
Wishing on the Perseid – Zach Johnson went looking for an adventure in the Rocky Mountains before settling into grad school. Little did he know Park Ranger Ryan Jenkins was exactly what he was looking for.
Special Delivery – An unexpected phone call turns Camden’s boring day off into a potential disaster when he ends up taking his cousin’s delivery shift with Axel, the tattooed hunk he dreams about. But Axel’s got a plan…and a special delivery that’ll leave Camden wanting more.
Westward Avenue Matchmaker – EMT Peter is getting tired of being called to Westward Avenue again and again for Mrs McKinney’s kitchen fires, but the chance to flirt with an attractive fireman makes it all worthwhile.
On the Wing – Traveling the world for work doesn’t leave a lot of time to find love on the ground. But maybe on the wing.
Let it Hurt – All Leo Shelton wanted to do was patch things up with his boyfriend Caleb Hart. When an accident threatens to take it all away the two realize just how much they need one another.
Loggerhead – Soon after they fall in love, Jake makes Eric a promise inspired by an old track uniform. But demanding work schedules at Jake’s four-star restaurant and Eric’s newspaper keep them from following through. Six years later, they take the honeymoon they never had, heading to the Florida coast in search of sea turtles—and rekindling their passion for each other in the process.
The Night Shift – Jonas Kelshiker works the night shift in the Evidence Room at the police depot, where the crimes have become monotonous and the policemen unremarkable – until the night Dan Harris shows up at his window.
Roadside Assistance – When Robert sees flashing lights in his rear view mirror, he doesn’t know just how wild a turn his night is going to take. With the threat of his first speeding ticket imminent, he tries to use his clever mouth to get him out of trouble. But this cop won’t let him get off that easy.

“I like this hallway,” he says, turning back to me and placing two hands directly upon me. His fingers flex over my pecs and the tips of his short nails dig playfully into my shirt. He pushes his body square against me, the movements of his breathing mimicking my own surprised and excited rhythm. Bringing his face closer to my ear, he speaks in a teasing whisper. “I prefer my company in the dark.”
I’m a little shocked at his bold and aggressive personality, but I like it. I hate how so many men I’ve been with have played the come-chase-me game, or the, I’m-only-going-to-pretend-I’m-into-you thing. This guy is different; clear intentions. No games. No jokes.
I’m about to introduce myself when he pushes me backward against the wall. I hit the brick with a genuine oof of both astonishment and force, and find my hands have shot out around his hard waist. His muscular abs flex under my thumbs, and I feel drowned by his intense gaze.
His breath falls warm against my face. “I think you want what I want.”
What I want… I want this man. Every inch of my body is ready to fly at him, twitching and pushing for release like the stiff nudge of my dick against my government issue boxer briefs. Screw Jay. He’s late and I’m feeling attention starved. I’m single and I don’t want to be.
He looks me up and down, licking his lips. “God, I love a man in uniform.”

These stories are a super short sample of the authors’ work so I’m just giving a couple of thoughts on each story. This is definitely a good way to get a taste of their work to know whether or not you want to read more.
The Encounter by Angora Shade
This is without a doubt one of the hottest short stories I’ve ever read. This one encounter between two men absolutely leaves you wanting more while being utterly satisfied with what you get.
Wishing on the Perseid by Kay C. Sulli
This is a sweet story with a hint for the future for our main characters. There was a bit of a build up of the sexual tension making them coming together a little sweeter. We also got a nice surprise at the end!
Special Delivery by DC Juris
The bad boy biker and the geeky awkward boy. The dialog in this one seemed a little forced and didn’t flow as well as it did in the first two. It was still a cute story that ended in a sweet way.
Westward Avenue Matchmaker by Jean Wolfe
This seemed shorter than the other stories and there wasn’t much to it. I would have liked to see the MC’s interact more than they did and not have the story end so abruptly.
On the Wing by Shannen Malone
I would love to see more from this couple…it felt like fleeting, stolen moments and could have been a whirlwind romance across the globe. While they had a good time at the end, you really have to use your imagination on where it goes from there.
Let it Hurt by Kassandra Lea
Whew…heavy and emotional. We do get a great ending but it hurt a little to get there.
Loggerhead by Dale Cameron Lowry
This story is a great reminder to make time for those you love and not get too caught up in things that aren’t as important. I love the history with these two and them remembering why they fell in love.
The Night Shift by Louise Blaydon
These boys are super cute together and I like how shy they both are even though you wouldn’t expect that from one of them. A couple of times the writing was a bit confusing but it was overall a good story.
Roadside Assistance by Aiden McKenna
This story threw me for a bit of a loop and I was going to be disappointed in the main character. It ended up being not what I thought and a super cute story with a super hot scene!
Meet the author:
Angora Shade: Angora Shade is an American author living in what she lovingly refers to as “Sheep Shit Nowhere” Europe. In an attempt to add some spice to her small town life, Ms. Shade began writing explicit erotica as a form of self-entertainment. Exploring the boundaries of acceptable sexual literature, she often seeks to create stories that not only entertain others, but also expose and push against the negative stigma surrounding sex in modern day society. She believes that sex in literature, art, personal thought, and physical nature, should be celebrated and expressed openly and as easily as any God-given freedom. Her favorite themes in writing include revenge, self-discovery, alternative materials for love play/BDSM, as well as anything that produces a good tingle, sizzle, or laugh. When not writing, Ms. Shade enjoys red wine, travel, dancing, classic cartoons, baking, and creating fine art.
Kay C. Sulli: Kay C. Sulli is a queer asexual writer often found scribbling in the wilderness. She writes from the heart with a passion for history, nature, and the American West.
