Teaser Tuesday

Okay, I'm obviously running a little behind! Rather than a picture, I'll give you a short peek at a bit I'm working on. 

A Dragon's Treasure

“Why am I in this God forsaken town?” Connie mumbled to herself. She had needed to get out of Chicago and her cousin lived in the back of beyond in Wisconsin. Visiting her on the spur of the moment seemed like a good idea. Knowing the small town was a good place to hide out from the man trying to kill her had clinched it. But the heat! It had to be 100 degrees out!
Connie had the top down on the convertible to catch a breeze. The air just seemed to smother her, wrapping her in a blanket of heat. The air itself was hazy. As she stopped at the stop and go light a man stopped and waited to cross. Connie couldn’t help but stare. He was mopping his neck with his shirt and muscles rippled in his arms and abdomen. Yummy! Abs to die for, a bit of chest hair with a mouthwatering glory trail running down into low slung Levi’s. She felt a shiver run through her body. Maybe this trip wouldn’t be so bad if eye candy like this was around.
A slight breeze swirled in the air fluttering her hair. The breeze continued on to waft past the man. As it wrapped around him his eyes snapped to hers. He lifted his head in the air and sniffed. If she didn’t know better she’d swear he could smell her. She could feel the weight of his gaze, the sudden stillness in his body. The intent in his eyes, the feel of being his prey froze her. The light turned green. Unnerved, she turned away and drove off, his eyes following her.

Connie shook her head as she drove to the edge of town. She was getting paranoid. Prey indeed! She didn’t know why the weight of his gaze flustered her, but she wasn’t about to worry about it. Her life was complicated enough at the moment. 

A little rough, but not even my beta readers have seen it. I like to finish it all the way through and then send it out. I'm hoping it is soon, but I probably won't finish it until November. I was aiming at the end of September but I know that won't happen!
