Genre: Fiction: Christian Fantasy, Angels & Demons, Contemporary.
All the ladies love Wayne Tyler and he loves all the ladies. Able to impersonate just about any rock or country singer in the business to a tee, he is a talented musician and singer. When he auditions at Tequilaville, a new lakeside club near N.A.S.A. in Houston, Texas, he meets the lady co-owner, Abby Hawkins, a grounded business woman who is instantly smitten.
At their first encounter with Wayne, Abby tells her father, “Daddy Hank, it’s time to undo the laces” and takes the womanizer home with her, much to her Dad’s disapproval. After being falsely accused of sleeping with Abby’s free-spirited sister, Bella, Wayne gets drunk, hot-wires a boat and heads into Galveston Bay late at night to attempt suicide.
That’s when the supernatural explodes! Wayne is water spouted into another realm and is given three choices by his guardian angel, Gordon, a.k.a. Mr. Elroy, an old black blues singer. Wayne chooses to face his demons. Some are cunning, some are funny and often charming. Some are vicious with one aim in mind—to claim Wayne’s soul. If Wayne is victorious, his prize will be to learn what true love is. There are no guarantees in this unusual, beyond supernatural realm. Wayne may never return…but if he does, the rewards are great.
