“ICON” the fifth excerpt from another Author G. D. Grace novel. (Release Date: TBD)

I guess I’m still feeling generous with the excerpts.  I hope you’re enjoying them.  ~GD

“So, you’re the sexy little siren that everyone is trying to slice?”  he asked, in a slow, deep, seductive drawl.

The sexy voice seemed out of place in the celebrity filled climate. It didn’t sound phony or rehearsed like all the rest, and It caused an instant spike in her curiosity.  It was a welcomed break. When she spun around to see who it belonged to, she found herself gazing up at this tall, brawn, delicious, dark-skinned, morsel of masculinity.  He was wearing a tailored suit that looked as if it was hugging every muscle on his body.

She slowly lowered her head, so she could purposely realign her eyes and give him subtle sexiness in a flirtatious glance. Meeting the handsome stranger suddenly made attending the industry event worth wild.  The possibility of a romantic evening filled with steamy hot intimacy had pushed all prior frustrations to the rear.  How could anyone stay in a funky mood after meeting somebody so fine? There’s no better release for stress than sex.

“Nobody gets a slice unless I give them permission,” she told him, licking both her lips afterwards.

“Oh, is that so?” he smirked,  as he inspected her head to toe with only his eyes.

Those calculated moves he made added mystery to the brass persona he arrogantly flaunted, and even though she could sense that slight hint of danger, she chose to ignore it.  Protective whispers from deep within her intuition, strongly suggested that she not move beyond the safety of introduction  but, rather than listen, she continued her descent  into uncharted territory.

“So, what is your title, and which record label are you rolling  with?” she inquired, deliberately, changing the subject. She needed to know a little more about him before she pulled down the panties.

As soon as she asked the question his whole demure changed, and she clearly saw how uncomfortable it had made him. Why, she did not know, but she was definitely going to ask.

“Questions. You do realize that  you might actually hear something that isn’t meant for you to hear. Why don’t you ask a more simple one; for example, something like what’s your name?” he suggested, in a more serious tone.

She shot him the evil-eye with a skeptical glance, and said,”Well, I suppose I could do that, but why did that question bother you so much? I don’t see what the big deal is. I mean really. Okay, what is your name?” she asked in a mocking tone.

He shook his head in amusement. For being such a big star, she was very down-to-earth. She was also naturally beautiful. The only make up she had on was, a light red shade of lipstick. Some women didn’t need any  make up to enhance there beauty, and she was certainly one of them.

He made a conscious decision not to disclose what his real occupation was, because he wasn’t quite sure if she was in the life. His identity was widely known throughout the entertainment industry.  Everyone on the drug circuit knew him by his first name. Nobody knew his last name, and he took special  precautions to make sure that no one did. In his line of work he quickly learned that, the less they  knew  about him the better. .

“Felix. The name is Felix and, since I already know who you are, let’s get straight to the point. I’d like to take you out to dinner, and the only answer I’ll accept is yes,” he said, with bold confidence.

“You are certainly sure of yourself, aren’t you, Felix? You know, It seems you asked and answered at the same time. It sounds  like I wasn’t  given a choice. Now what have you got to say for yourself?”  she inquired, flirtatiously.

“Oh, pardon me. I didn’t mean any harm, Ms, Starr. I really am a true gentleman. I’d be honored if you’d give me the opportunity to prove it to you,” he said, in more of gentle tone.

“Well, let me think about it for a second. Now, I should turn you down for coming at me the wrong way at first, but you did make up for it when you did it the second time; however,  you made me a tad uncomfortable they way reacted to a basic question.  That tells me I definitely need to proceed with caution dealing with you, Felix,” she said, following his eyes as he acknowledged quite a few people in passing.

If he wasn’t in the business, how come he knew so many people?

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
