A hot cop, a handywoman in killer heels, and a not-so-idle threat… it’s going to take more than a pink hammer to fix-it.

Wyatt “Earp” Hardy lives for his SEAL brothers. Retiring from military service brings new challenges for him to face. The last thing he expects is for his next mission to involve falling for the much younger botanist.
If the botanist has the strength to heal, can Wyatt find the courage to love?
The short story The Botanist is book three in Dahlia Donovan’s international bestselling gay romance series, The Sin Bin. Each one features hot rugby players and the men who steal their hearts.
As the release date to The Botanist approaches, I thought I’d share a bit about the two main characters. I fell in love with both of them and hope you do the same.
1. He’s a hero.
2. Hilariously funny.
3. Incredibly hot.
4. A Navy SEAL. Who doesn’t love a SEAL?
5. Genuinely cares about helping others.
1. Great hair. He’s got better hair than I do.
2. Plants. More plants. All the plants. He talks to them and treats them like his pets.
3. His brilliant mind.
4. Courage in the face of a terrible event.
5. His optimism.
What makes you a love a character?
As they make allowances for each other’s foibles, Ben gradually appreciates the finer things, and Léo widens his perspective. They both know one thing: this is not a typical holiday romance, and they’re not ready to say goodbye.
Nurse Freddie Whittle devotes every fibre of his being to his work with cancer patients. Their pain weighs heavily on his shoulders. Between losing clients, the expectations of his fathers, and bigot neighbours, he’s slowly reaching his breaking point.
Taine Afoa retires from a storied career as an international rugby star. He’s moved away from London for a change of pace, never expecting to meet a man who’s far too young for him. No matter how hard he tries, it’s impossible to get Freddie out of his mind.
Will Taine’s resistance dissolve in time for him to give love the chance to flourish?
Most of my characters have favourite curse words. Freddie, from The Caretaker, he tends to swear in Welsh, which amuses me to no end. He loves the rare and often eccentric meaning behind them (and so do I.) Here are five of his personal favourites along with their translations:
1. Twmffats – idiots
2. Coc y gath – The Cat’s Willy (Or – Bollocks)
3. Cachu hwch – Pig’s Poo (It’s all gone Wrong)
4. Dim gwerth rhech dafad – not worth a sheep’s fart (completely useless)
5. Cach – shit
Do you have a swear word you use more than others?
