So last week I forgot to sign up, but the post went up so let me catch you up - Brian brought in a new diva to audition for the club. (Our hero in disguise.) Erik agrees to let him sing, but she's confused as she finds herself attracted to him. And yes - a bit of creative editing this week- known as a run-on sentence - lol.
Darien hummed a few bars, found his key, breathed in and released a musical delight. Erik lost herself in his words and the emotions of his song. His gaze never seemed to waver from hers. She felt as if he was singing to her. Not performing, but as if he were serenading her. As if he was interested and maybe as if he even wanted her. She mentally slapped her forehead. Hello! He's gay! Well, maybe not, because not all men who dress in drag…yeah, but he came in with Brian and the boys - 'nuff said. 

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 thoroughly enjoyed this book, the chemistry between Darien and Erika was so hot that I thought my kindle would melt!

  1. The guy who was live in help during my parents' terminal illnesses (they died a week apart) was a cross-dresser -- off the job only. He swung both ways. And the great care he gave my parents was worthy of a saint. My sister and I were at his bedside a few years later when he died.

    1. Yes, when I research divas, I saw many were not gay.

    2. actually I just remembered - we discover one of the divas used to be a nurse - but that's not until the next book.

  2. He's straight, I just know it. It's time for romance. Lovely story about your family, Ed. Thanks.

    1. He's straight - it's just going to take time for Erika to figure it out.

  3. Never judge a book by the cover, as they say! (Lovely story of Ed's)
    Looking forward to reading this book.

    1. Yes, Ed's story is perfect for today.

  4. Oh, she's going to be in trouble when she figures out he is so not gay. Can't wait - tee hee

  5. Love this snippet. Can't wait to see her reaction when she finds out he's straight. :) Lovely story, Ed. How kind of you & your sister to be with him as he passed.

  6. Excellent excerpt - I could feel her confusion quite clearly and how terrific that he's an amazing singer!

  7. Eventually she's going to learn what happens when you assume. You really never know with people. They're complicated!

    1. We pretty much all make assumption at one time or another - and sometimes realities surprises us.
