What is Ericka's problem? What Happens in Bangkok on Weekend Writing Warriors #8sunday #hotromance

From my hot contemporary rock star romance - What Happens in Bangkok. Erika loves her job running a drag queen club in Bangkok, Thailand. But she does have 1 little issue. Erika is leading on the bar - looking around her club as the show is just starting.
(there was a little bit of editing to make this fit.)




When the act was announced, three drag queens strutted across the stage, sporting large hair and long, silver sequined gowns. Next up, Madonna. No, Brian wasn't here tonight. In an unusual move for him, he'd crawled into her office, on his knees, in a drag queen's overly dramatic way, begging for Thursday night off. Something about someone named Alonzo. Great. Brian has a date. Alonzo has a date. Most of the people here are on dates. Why can't I get a date?




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. If this were a movie, it should star Sandra Bullock. The poor-little-club-owner who can't get a date role would be perfect for her.

  5. Indeed- why no date for her? The downside of hanging out with drag queens. :-)

  10. I can imagine the problems of running a drag queen night club in Bangkok don't leave much time for her own issues. Love the cover!
