On WWW - Book 2 cover reveal and a Book 1 excerpt. #8sunday #hotread

In my post, two weeks ago, Erika's crazy night has hit a new low- she and her bouncer were breaking up a fight between 2 ladies of the evening.  Are her troubles over? Nope. Skipping a few pages – Puii, the bouncer, walks into her office and announces…… (yes, some editing to get it to 10)

AND....there's a cover reveal of Book 2 cover - first peek for the great bunch here at WWW.

 "Somebody hit the Black Dragon. Killed everybody."
Erik's stomach dropped as she said, "What?"
The Black Dragon. Her dream job. An exclusive private club that only catered to the elite of the elite. Expensive food. The best liquor. No screaming divas or prostitute bitch fights. Heaven.

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?

Due out in June.

A drag queen club manager. A rock star's chaotic world. A heaping dose of internet rumors. When worlds collide, can Erika's and Darien's relationship survive?

It's complicated is not only her relationship status, but the definition of Erika Bailey's life. She loves managing her drag queen club in Bangkok, Thailand, but her rock star boyfriend resides in North Carolina. And to top it off, her father threatens she must stay away from Darien or lose the Pink Flamingo. Does she protect her club or her love?

Darien Scott, Grammy award winning international superstar, wants nothing more than to wake up in the arms of Erika, the woman he loves, but contractual obligations force him to exotic video shoots and an isolated movie set with one of Hollywood's sexiest stars.

With the feeding frenzy of social media trending every aspect of Darien's life—real or not—it's hard for Erika to know the truth. Will she be able to see through the lies and trust Darien? Or will evidence from damaging Internet rumors condemn their relationship?

  1. Some dream job. Her club may have problems, but they're relatively small.

    1. Yes, a diva fight is less trouble than a deadly hit.

  2. Funny idea of what's a dream job. Good snippet.

    1. Well, it was her dream job - before the hit.

  3. LOVE this series! And the new cover-Amazing!! If you haven't read Daryl's books I recommend you go buy your copy right now :)

  4. Everything is relative, and subject to change without notice. (It's the official fine print, really.)
    Excellent dialogue, as always, Daryl.

    1. It's always the fine print that gets a person - lol.

  5. Hmm, I guess even heaven has its flaws in this novel. Loved the irony of her thoughts. Great snippet!

  6. There might not have been screaming divas, but clearly the Dragon had some terrible drama. A dream into a nightmare!

    1. That's where Darien was when the hit happened.

  7. Every silver lining comes with a cloud. Screaming divas, nothing compared to explosions. Love her attitude. Great snippet.

  8. Sounds like everything was not quite as great as it seemed at the Dragon.

    1. No- we tend to see our dreams as perfect - not reality.
