Musings with Morticia Knight on Boundaries #MM #eroticromance
Please welcome the fabulous Morticia Knight! She is here to talk about her new MM release Set Ablaze and muse about pushing boundaries.
Where are Your Boundaries?
I could probably write a couple dozen posts on that subject matter – there are so many areas that could be covered! But this subject comes up in my new MM release, “Set Ablaze”, that is about two hunky firemen falling in love. Nothing wrong with that, right? Except for one little thing: one is the fire chief, and the other works for him. Uh-oh. The ol’ inappropriate relationships at work dilemma.
Well, I have a confession to make: that’s how I met my partner seven years ago. There was also a cougar thing going on there, but that’s not the point today. The point is that I was his boss. Yeah. I crossed boundaries. Now before everyone goes all judgmental on my ass, I did legitimately try and fight it. I told my closest friends that it was terribly wrong, and that I couldn’t allow it to happen. They all called me an idiot and told me to go for it. I guess we know where their boundaries are.
He didn’t help. He kept after me, and even though we didn’t ever swipe papers off the desk and have at it there in the office, we confessed our feelings for one another. And then we snuck around for a while, and then my boss found out when someone from work called me at a restaurant to tell me he had a health scare and I freaked out. In front of the Board of Directors that I reported to directly for work. Good one.
Fast forward a little where I made a startling frank confession to my boss, she told me that everyone had already figured it out – “duh” – and that as long as he could exit gracefully, there would be no repercussions. Yikes. Hormones are a bitch. This is why showing up for work on time every day is important people – you can always fall back on that (“But I’m very punctual”).
But here’s the deal; it wasn’t just hormones. That I could’ve dealt with. This was the real thing, and it went beyond attraction. We fell in love, and I guess for me, that’s where my boundaries are. What about you, have you ever had what some would consider an inappropriate relationship? In the following excerpt from “Set Ablaze”, the young recruit Tom inadvertently walks in on his boss – who he is falling for, but believes is straight – at a very awkward moment.

Blurb: Hunky fire chief Eric is out of the closet after twenty years of marriage. Can he find true love, or will a spate of arson fires destroy his chances with Tom, the sexy young fire-fighter?
It was ten p.m. when he arrived at the station, and his pulse quickened a little when he saw the light still on in the chief’s office as he pulled in the driveway. If he kept driving past the garage where the engines were kept and parked by the sleeping quarters, the office would be completely obscured from any of the guys on shift—even if they went outside for a smoke. Tom noticed a tan Ford Bronco parked at the end where the office was. That must be the chief’s ride. Exactly what he would have pictured him in.
Tom was about to continue pulling all the way in, when he thought of something. Maybe he could just drop in and thank Eric again for the opportunity. Who knew when else he might be able to see him without anyone else around?
Stupid. It’s late at night, I’m sure he doesn’t want to be bothered.
Tom sat there letting the car idle while he wrestled with his gut instinct—the one that was telling him it was a bad idea. Then a wonderful realisation hit him—he’d promised the chief he would drop off a copy of his most recent physical as he was stuttering and bumbling out of his office earlier. Tom put the car in park, and jumped out. He opened the back lift gate, and rummaged around for the paper he’d brought with him.
Yeah, it was still a little weird, but he could at least say that he’d seen the light on, and thought it would be easiest for him to drop it off on his way in to his shift. His heart thumping in his chest, Tom grabbed the document, parked his car properly, and started to walk towards the office door, surprised to note that his legs actually felt a little shaky.
I must be more tired than I realised, that’s all.
He reached the door to the building, and it was unlocked, so he went ahead and pulled it open. The waiting area and Keri’s office were completely dark, but there was a sliver of light coming from the partially opened door to the chief’s office. He heard a groan.
Oh shit, is he okay?
Tom ran forward and was about to burst into the office when he heard another voice, a younger male one.
“Oh yeah, you like that, don’t you, Mr Anderson? You like it when I squeeze your cock and play with the tip like that, don’t you? You see—you need me. I’m going to show you how much more you need me when I lick your balls and then suck the juice right out of your fucking huge cock. Here I come, baby…”
Tom heard an even louder groan, and Chief Anderson’s voice, “Oh God, Brad, I can’t believe how good that feels. But I…”
“You want me to stop? Is that it? Okay, if you don’t need my tongue doing this to you…”
Tom heard a whimper.
What is he doing? What is he doing?
Tom was bombarded with a flurry of emotions—surprise, lust, jealousy, curiosity. He didn’t know what to do. God, the chief wasn’t straight after all. But if Tom got caught… He was so curious, but he didn’t dare creep any farther. He should just leave that very second.
The chief moaned some more, and Tom could tell the man was nearing climax. Christ, if he didn’t get out of there soon, he would be too. He’d need to get his boner to go down before he could even head over to start work. What a night! Tom turned around to leave, and bumped his leg against the magazine table. Without thinking, he cried out.
