Not So Secret Santa

by Susan Mac Nicol

THE MAIN EVENT

Leslie Scott couldn't keep a secret if his life depended on it...and, this one's a doozy. After years of blissful co-habbing, Leslie plans to ask the love of his life, Oliver Brown, for his hand in marriage. Leslie agrees to help with the Kissmas Drag Stravaganza at his dear friend's nightclub, Club Delish, which is also the site of the impending proposal. Every detail is planned with Swiss watch precision: enjoy the show, bring Oliver back to a private room, seduce him then pop the question. But, as with all things Leslie, his scheme goes tits up. Never one to shy away from drama and public displays of affection, this proposal turns out to be one for the books.

Excerpt:

Sass draped a hand along his unscarred cheek. “Darling, you can never have too much sass. And oh my. Madam. Such a gentleman.” Her fingers ruffled his hair as her eyes glinted
wickedly. “I’d love to put a little Sass in you and hear you scream my name.” She gestured to her groin and made a lewd gesture.
Oliver grinned, leaned back 2in his chair, spread his legs so his package was on full display and grabbed his crotch.
“Sweetheart, you couldn't handle this.” Nicky Starr drawled. “Many a good man and drag queen has tried and failed. Come back when you’ve been around the block a few more
times.”
The table exploded into laughter. The easy transition from Oliver Brown, reclusive website designer, to his alter ego Nicky Starr, man of porn moments and many films, rose to the surface like an easy second skin. Even Oliver was surprised to see him emerge after so long.

The ‘unofficial’ stuff…

Her chequered past includes stories like being mistaken for a prostitute in the city of Johannesburg, being chased by a rhino on a dusty Kenyan road, getting kicked out of a youth club for being a ‘bad influence’ (she encourages free thinking) and having an aunt who was engaged to Cliff Richard
