In the #HotSeat: Akash from The Royal Marine by Dahlia Donovan | #ColorofLoveHop #MMRomance @DahliaDonovan

Hello readers. Today we're excited to have Akash Robinson  from The Royal Marine by Dahlia Donovan in the Hot Seat for #ColorofLove2017 celebration.

You're welcome to our blog, Akash. Thank you for hanging out with us today. We look forward to delving into your mind and finding out more about you. So let's get started.

LBAS: What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Akash: When I get a spice blend perfectly the first time, my creation comes out tasting amazing and I don’t have to throw it all in the bin and start over.

LBAS: What is your current state of mind?
Akash: Calm.

LBAS: What is your most treasured possession?
Akash: My sister would say my cat. I’d say the rolling pin that’s been used by the bakers in my family going back centuries to my great-great-something-grandmother in India.

LBAS: What or who is the greatest love of your life?
Akash: Hamish. Blockheaded retired Royal Marine that he is.

LBAS: What is your greatest fear?
Akash: Disappointing my parents.

LBAS: What is the quality you most like in a man/woman?
Akash: Honesty. A sense of humour. Respect. A cute arse, doesn’t hurt either.

LBAS: What is the trait you most deplore in others?
Akash: Lies. Bullying.

LBAS: On what occasions do you lie?
Akash: To avoid angering my eldest sister, Padma.  To avoid hurting Padma’s, my little sister, feelings. To keep from  getting a lecture from my well-meaning parents.

LBAS: Which is your favorite word or phrase?
Akash: Not sure I really have one. I talk about dough a lot.

LBAS: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Akash: I wish I did have so many scars on my hands from getting burnt while baking.

Thank you to Dahlia for indulging us. Find out more about Akash and Hamish in The Royal Marine.


Who keeps the Royal Marine's heart safe when he's running headlong into danger?

Akash Robinson fuses his Indian and British heritage into his baked creations. His life is all things sugar and spice, especially when a blind date leads him to the older military man of his dreams. Family, friends, and an unwanted admirer all threaten both his sanity and his budding romance.

Hamish Ross carries the names of his lost soldiers on his back. He takes his work seriously with no time for love. All it takes is one impulsive kiss to lead him into uncharted romantic waters.

When a sarcastic baker mixes with a stoic alpha marine, who will come out on top when the flour settles?

The Royal Marine is book four 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.

Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about shifters and damsels in distress.  She prefers irreverent humour and unconventional characters.  An autistic and occasional hermit, her life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her massive collection of books and video games.
