Is Brian setting Erika up? What Happens in Bangkok on Weekend Writing Warriors #8Sunday #hotread #rockstar #romance

Brian (Darien's brother) has just introduced a new diva to Erika. Brian claims the new entertainer can mimic the hot rock star - Darien Scott.



Sandee and Stewart placed hands over their mouths to hide their giggles. What did they find so funny? Was she being set up? She was pretty sure she could trust Brian. He was a straight up kind of guy.
"Think of it this way." Brian propelled her toward the stage area. "This blond God, hence the name Apollo, singing, oh say, You Stole My Heart or Make Me Love You. The audience will be filled to capacity, with horny guys buying lots of drinks and fantasizing about him singing to them."
Erik rubbed the back of her neck and said, "Well, let's get him up on stage and see what he can do.









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. He is supposed to be able to mimic Darien Scott - so it's ok that he sounds like him.
