âPretty sure itâs a yacht.â
âNope. Itâs a boat.â

âWithin the parameters of our war games with the Brits?â
âDoes it matter?â
âOi, Earp. Get your twats to shut the bloody hell up, will you? Theyâre clogging up our airwaves. Are they comedians or soldiers?â The dry humour in Hamish Rossâs voice echoed loudly in Wyattâs ear where heâd been working valiantly to ignore the chatter from his team. âYou listening?â
âWeâre Navy SEALs, Hamster, not soldiers. We leave that grunt shit to you.â Wyatt couldnât help needling his old friend and SAS counterpart.

âDahlia Donovan and Hot Tree Publishing bring us a beautiful love story, a short story, involving an unlikely cast of characters. @DahliaDonovan, Exquisite once again!.â â MainelyStories â Amazon Reviewer.
âWhat 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!

So, for me to say that I really REALLY loved it, well, says something!.â â Mrs M D Attenborough â Amazon Reviewer.
