FIRST OFF - I go to no blogs last week - my bad. Canada Day was last week - on Saturday - but it poured rain so everything was postponed to Sunday and by the time the fireworks were over I was too tired to check my blog- THANK YOU to all who did comment and I will be a better Weekend Writing Warrior this week.

Switching back to Erika. we left Erika after a horrible night at the club, including a fight at the club and then the concern about the club being attacked. She tossed everyone out, locked herself in her secure office and spent the night on the couch. ( a minor edit to get it to 10 sentences)

As regular as clockwork, Erik’s eyes popped open at eleven. She yawned, stretched and grabbed her cell phone. After connecting to the security system, she scanned the club with the security cameras, checking that everything looked normal. She unlocked her office door and headed upstairs to the private apartment. After entering, she clicked on her TV and crossed the room to the bathroom. A phrase from the news broadcaster made her pause. Darien Scott? The Delicious Turmoil World Tour Darien Scott? At the Black Dragon? Was he killed?

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?

5 Star Review –
I loved this story. From the very beginning I was on the edge of my seat until I finished it several hours later. I couldn't put the book down. I needed to know what was going to happen to Darien and Erika next. Fast paced from the first word and with several surprises I'd highly recommend this book.

  1. So he's famous that she's heard of him. That ups the ante just that much more.

  2. Intriguing! I have a feeling their paths are about to cross. :)

    1. We are slowly getting there. Can't rush it.

  3. The story gets better and better. Way good, my friend.

    1. Thanks. I hope you are feeling better.

  4. Looks like Erica might have an interest in the rock star. Is she a groupie perhaps? :) This is a fabulous book!

  5. Well that doesn't sound good. I hope she's not thinking of heading over there to do any investigating. The Black Dragon doesn't sound like the most welcoming place.

    1. Rest assured - she's not that crazy.

  6. I really enjoy the way your smooth writing makes this all seem so every day and believable, yet the story is so suspenseful, with such fascinating elements of place and character. Great snippet!

    1. Wow - Veronica - thank you so much for that compliment.

  7. Fantastic snippet. You can feel the tension already high and ratcheting up.

  8. Very sensible of her to check security before leaving her office. That was a good way to remind us of the danger she's in.

    1. Thank - have to keep my characters safe - lol

  9. Things are about to get . . . interesting!!

  10. He's delicious, huh? Well, that's going to make their life a bit more interesting when their circumstances collide. :)
