Raine Gayle runs a struggling club called Raine's Blues located on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Her world is full of the interesting characters the club shelters from the ugliness of L.A.'s mean streets. Faced with a financial crisis and desperate to keep her club open, Raine searches frantically for that one act that will draw the crowds. She believes she has found that act in the form of the beautiful and renowned chanteuse, Cintra Wells.
Cintra Wells is more than a little surprised when Raine asks the band to headline at the small blues club. Usually Cintra would reject the offer of such a low venue, but decides to take the gig for one reason – Raine. Cintra recognizes Raine immediately; after all, Raine turned Cintra down for their high school prom. Back then though, Cintra went by her…or rather, his…real name, Neil Williams. Neil doesn't hold any grudges against Raine. Though, it would be fun to play her a good turn since it's obvious Raine doesn't realize that Cintra Wells is actually a man. Namely, the smolderingly sexy manager of Cintra's jazz quartet.
Payback doesn't particularly have to be a bitch, but in this case, it won't be a lady either.Read excerpt
