Erika runs a drag queen club in Bangkok Thailand. It's been an unbelievably bad day - diva fight - customer fight - she got punched then the news of a club hit where everyone was killed and now she's been told the killers are a triad and are headed towards her club. She tries to get everyone to leave.

The sensation of panic that had risen in her because of the chaos of the overly hysterical performers froze Erik's brain. She stared at a lone stiletto lying on the floor by the stage entrance. An idea popped into her head. She ran into the dressing room, grabbed four evening gowns, then raced to the exit. "If you don't leave, I'll throw these into the dumpster in the alley." The drag queens followed the gowns like  moths to a flame.
Puii offered to stay. She thanked him, then sent him home. At last, the club was empty. Erik shut off all the club’s lights, including the outside sign. Maybe if the thugs thought the place was closed they wouldn't bother it.

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. LOL. This is a very imaginative solution to a unique problem.

  2. Great ideas for twists and turns in a story. Good job!

  3. That's one way to get them out. :) Hopefully the thugs won't bother, but I have a feeling they're still going to show up. Great snippet!

  4. A very effect method of drag queen control. LOL Loved this book! Looking forward to Book #2.

  5. Smart move, threatening the gowns! Hopefully a quiet, darkened club is enough to put off the bad guys. But how long can she keep it that way?

  6. Hahaha that was a brilliant plan. I hope the triad doesn't reach her place -for now-. Great snippet!

  7. Loved the image of a gaggle of partially dressed divas chasing after their purloined gowns! Great job, Daryl

  8. Just wonderful Daryl. You always save the day.

  9. That seems a risky gamble, especially alone.

  10. Thank you everybody. I'll get to all your blogs - just a bit behind today - the sun called to me :-)

  11. Somehow I doubt the thugs are that easily deterred but we'll see. She has nowhere else to go??? Scary stuff...so, an excellent excerpt.

  12. Smart move on her part. She knows what motivates the "girls."
