While New York can be a tough town, Daiquiri quickly lands a job at Tigress, a bar catering to the trans and cross-dressing community, where everyone fall in love with the hard-working, quirky Daiquiri. With the help of Tigress's owner, Mercury, Daiquiri finds a place to live with Johnny, the handsome, brooding Tigress bartender and boytoy for Marilyn Hansen - wife of successful businessman, Schmitt Hansen - who Johnny hopes will back him in a business venture. And while Daiquiri can’t help but be drawn to Johnny’s handsome moodiness, she's equally attracted to the gorgeous, flirtatious Brett, co-owner of the local coffeehouse she stops by daily. While Daiquiri fantasizes that either Brett or Johnny will be "her first," her less-than-scientific investigation into the identity of her biological father leads her to believe that Alex Comier, a mega-handsome, mega-successful businessman is the man her mother slept with 24 year ago in the back of a cab. But when Daiquiri convinces one of the lonely transsexuals to allow her to give her a makeover, toning down her harsh makeup and giving her a softer, more feminine look, the results are astounding! Daiquiri quickly finds herself in demand as the makeover star of the trans community! What she doesn't expect is that all of these pieces will collide in a crazy series of events that could only happen in New York City, leading her to not only regretfully discover her biological father but to happily realize that man she wants to be 'her first' is not who she expected at all! But just as Daiquiri's life is falling place, her mother, Vivian, and Trueblood, the island police captain, catch up Daiquiri and she is arrested for the attempted murder, leading to a court battle where Daiquiri believes she can prove her innocence and an unexpected ally comes to her aid and proves he's more than a gross disappointment. This hilarious and heartfelt tale of charm and perseverance is in the vein of LEGALLY BLONDE and LIFE AND OTHER NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES, told in the unique and wonderful first-person voice of Daiquiri herself. This is a journey of a person searching for so many pieces missing in her life but finding the one she never expected...herself.
SACRED BAND OF THEBES
“If there were only some way of contriving that an army should be made up of lovers and their loves, they would be the very best governors of their own city, abstaining from all dishonour, and emulating one another in honour; and when fighting at each other’s side, although a mere handful, they would overcome the world.” – Plato: Symposium
Thus was the motivation for the Sacred Band of Thebes, an elite Greek fighting force of 150 pairs of lovers. For forty years, they were considered the greatest fighting force on Earth.
Their reputation established in 376 B.C.E., when the 300 man Sacred Band, faced off against an army of 1,800 Spartans, broke their ranks and caused the Spartans to flee. It was the first time in Spartan history that a force of equal or lesser size had defeated them.
And then a mere five years later they faced off against the mighty Spartans once again. Joined by 7,000 men from various Boeotian cities, the 300-strong Sacred Band defeated the significantly larger 12,000 man Spartan army. Using newly created battle strategies, the Spartan losses were in the thousands after only two hours of fighting, and Sparta’s long reign as the military might of the region collapsed.
The remarkable legend of the Sacred Band lives to this day…
