Wyatt “Earp” Hardy is a US Navy
SEAL. His life begins and ends with those two words. He readily risks himself
for the men under his command. Trouble is—he can’t live for them during a time
when military policy weighs heavily on who he is.

Researching for his master’s thesis, botanist
Aled Demers’s life is about to unravel. One torturous nightmare run-in with
drug runners leaves him permanently scarred. He knows he’s lucky to be alive
after being rescued by a group of SEALs, but suffering from PTSD takes its

The SEAL and the botanist come from different
worlds, but one rescue links them together. Can Aled recover enough strength to
risk his heart? Will Wyatt’s leaving the Navy force him to reassess more than
just his career choices?

The Botanist is a short story introducing two
key members to The Sin Bin series.

“There’s a boat.”
“Pretty sure it’s a yacht.”
“Nope. It’s a boat.”
“Why’s there a yacht-like boat in the combat zone?”
“Better question: Can we make it go boom?”
“Within the parameters of our war games with the Brits?”
“Does it matter?”
“Oi, Earp. Get your twats to shut the bloody hell up, will you? They’re clogging up our airwaves. Are they comedians or soldiers?” The dry humour in Hamish Ross’s voice echoed loudly in Wyatt’s ear where he’d been working valiantly to ignore the chatter from his team. “You listening?”
“We’re Navy SEALs, Hamster, not soldiers. We leave that grunt shit to you.” Wyatt couldn’t help needling his old friend and SAS counterpart. They’d worked together multiple times over the years, sharing secrets, wounds, and beers. “Hey, Ross, any clue why there’s a vessel in our designated dive area?”

They’re not ours—or yours. Boat’s registered to a local rental company, the owner claims only one person should be on it. A botany student from Cardiff.”

What I particularly
liked about this book, is what’s NOT here, it’s what is missing. It is almost
clean. Bar one scene at the end, there is no sex! And if you follow my reviews,
you’ll know I do prefer my books, male/male ones especially, on the more explicit
side. So, for me to say that I really REALLY loved it, well, says something!
