From What Happens in Bangkok - let's ease back on the tension - give you all a break - lol

Scene - Darien is on the run from 2 club hits and calls his brother for help. Brian, his older brother, just asked Darien what he's gotten himself into this time.

Warning - Language 



Darien gripped his cell. "Nothin'. I fuckin' didn't do nothin'."
"Chill. Where are you?"
"In a doorway."
"Not a lot of help, dude. Coupla million doorways in Bangkok. Narrow it down for me."



To save Darien's life his brother asks, "Can you walk in high heels?"

Erika Bailey, owner/manager of a drag queen club in Bangkok, Thailand has happily settled into all aspects of her new life, except for her lack of a love life. When a new diva auditions, Erika is bewildered over her instant attraction to the blond God, Apollo.

Darien Scott is on vacation after a world tour and mistakenly figures the safest place to be is at The Black Dragon with the head of a Triad. When the club is hit, Darien is the only person to get out alive. Now   he's running from the police and a Triad. Mistake number 1.

Disguised as a drag queen, he's hired by Erika, but falls hard for his new boss, then struggles with not coming clean with her. Mistake number 2.

Can he fix his mistakes and find a life filled with love or is he headed straight for mistake number 3?

  1. Very good point from his brother, but it's hard to get oriented when you're panicked.

  6. And remember that - his brother is practical - it is a very important clue in the book.
