I'd like to introduce you to Apollo - What Happens in Bangkok on Weekend Writing Warriors #8Sunday #hotread

From What Happens in Bangkok - so I've jumped a bit - there is a hot sexy shower scene - but it was too spicy for early Sunday morning. Erika is sitting in her club office staring at her TV. (note- remember- Brian is Darien's brother) And yes there was a bit of creative editing.




With the news being too painful to watch, she channel surfed, not paying attention to what was on the screen. A distant noise broke into her doldrums. She tilted her head and listened. A pounding on her door echoed through the club. She crossed the room and peered through the peep hole. Brian's smiling face appeared. She punched the alarm code, unlocked the door and stepped back to allow Brian and his friends to enter.
"Morning. Love you," he said as he kissed her cheek.
Once everyone stood inside the kitchen, Brian pointed at the tall blond and said, "I'd like to introduce you to Apollo."











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?

  2. Daryl, maybe try, "Meet Apollo." Instead of I'd like you to meet Apollo. Anyway try it.
    Thanks, my friend.

    1. Brian likes to be formal when he's introducing someone and he's being especially formal at the moment trying to make a big effect of the introduction.

  3. And now the hero and heroine meet. I wonder how long Apollo will be able to keep that identity around her.

    1. As long as I could keep writing scenes that had them dancing around who he is.

    1. Yeah, I kinda went with the cliche name - it matches the diva theme.

  7. Charming intro. While I like Charmaine's suggestion, you know your character best and how he would talk. Some people are just wordy.

    1. Yup. Besides the book is already published - not going back to change anything.

  8. Nice set up. It makes me feel like something's about to happen.
