The pampered diva is about to meet her match
Songbird Gloria Houghton has always needed to be the center of attention, but the spotlight has shifted. Seeking fame and a fresh start, she finds a new stage in Branson, Missouri…only to risk being replaced by a manipulative rival. If Gloria can’t be the star, who is she?
Jack-of-all-trades Nick Sherwood is just one leaf on a vast family tree that includes a restaurant chef, hotel owners, and even the headline act at a family-owned theater. He’s seen how fame can blind a person with jealousy and is more than content to stay in the background thank you very much. If only he wasn’t so fascinated--and irritated--by the newest addition to the staff.
After a disaster of a first impression and financial difficulties land Gloria in the humblest of jobs—with Nick as her boss—it might be time for her to learn to sing a new song.
Nearing the backstage area, she scanned the map on her phone to locate the rehearsal room.
Almost there. Gloria glanced up just in time for her foot to slip out from under her on the wet floor. Her weak knee buckled, and the concrete floor came rushing toward her. Reaching for anything to break her fall, her fingers grazed the edge of a rolling bucket of mop water, tipping her phone into the liquid a moment before it—and the mop—toppled over. She landed hard on her right shoulder an instant before a flood of water soaked the upper half of her body.
Ouch. That would leave a bruise.
She blinked a couple of times, then lifted her head.
Nearby, a bearded man set down a yellow Caution sign before wiping black-streaked hands on his coveralls. A tool belt hung low around his waist.
Behind him, she caught a glimpse of the stage between the side curtains as the applause of the crowd faded into a burst of conversation with the show ending.
Gloria’s hands slid a little on the wet surface as she pushed herself upright. The new soreness in her shoulder competed with the familiar ache in her knee. She must have tweaked her old injury a bit on her way down.
The janitor approached, reaching out a hand as if to help her to her feet.
“No thanks. You’ve helped quite enough already.” She stabbed a manicured finger in the direction of the tardy sign. Even if she had been paying attention, there had been no warning about a wet floor.
She attempted to hasten his retreat with a glare. Except, the water dripping from her hair ruined the effect, and his frown turned into a bit of a smirk, as if she’d provided his entertainment for the day.
