Brian has just introduced a new diva to Erika.  And yes there was a bit of creative editing.



The blond nodded, although Erik was pretty sure it was after he'd scanned her from head to toe, with a lingering glance at her breasts. She wasn't embarrassed. She worked out and she knew she looked good, but she was surprised. Brian's friends generally didn't check out girls, only what they wore, and in these sweat pants and tank top, she wasn’t exactly dressed to kill.
Brian wrapped an arm around her shoulders and said, "So, Erik honey, remember I said we needed a new singer? Well, I found one. Wait until you hear this guy."
"Who does he do? I'd do back handsprings for a Taylor Swift."
Brian glanced over his shoulder and said, "He does a mean Darien Scott.









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. That lingering glance at her breasts is the first of many clues to his orientation, I'm sure.

  10. I love this scene! I like what I've read so far, and the whole premise. I just bought it on Amazon. :-)

  11. There's a big difference between checking out clothes and the body in them. The fact that she caught that makes me think she'll figure out this new guy is different from the usual!
