Scene Set - After surviving a hit at a private club, Darien runs to another and waits for his brother to rescue him.  Except, the van with the shooters arrive. Darien is on the run again.



Keeping low, Darien darted from car to car. When he passed the empty van, he bolted out of the parking lot. He raced across the street, ignoring the sound of squealing brakes and angry horn blasts.
He needed to get away. He needed to get some distance from the club. His shoulder smashed against someone. A man? A woman? He didn't know and didn't care. He kept moving.







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?

  12. Excellent action. I can really feel his panic as he tries to get away.

    BTW, the link to my post is bad. I left off the “T” in blogspot, hence the red screen and warning. So sorry. It should be: http://dianeburton.blogspot.com
