Welcome to Teaser Tuesday! This blog is where I’m going to share snippets from my books, works in progress and pictures that inspired my stories.
Today’s teaser is coming from my contemporary romance, Chasing Trouble.
After a not so happy reunion with her ex-boyfriend. Ava’s stuck at Nick’s house during a storm in need of more help from him than she wanted.
“I have nothing to wear. Do you have something I can borrow?”
He crossed his arms over his chest and leaned against the window frame. “You keep getting yourself in a predicament tonight, don’t you?”
The smug smile on his arrogant face needed to be wiped off. “Well, I do like to sleep naked and tend to get up during the night if you’re comfortable with that?” She slipped her fingers in the knot of her towel like she was about to let it drop.
Nick’s nostrils flared, and his jaw tightened.
She couldn’t suppress her smile of satisfaction. Mr. Cool wasn’t so cool after all.
He sneered and stormed into what she remembered was his parents’ bedroom. A couple of minutes later he reappeared with a bundle in his arms. He threw it at her. “Here, put these on.”
She let go of the grip on the towel to catch the clothes. The knot loosened, and it dropped in a puddle at her feet.
They both froze for a beat. Nick’s eyes were back to flashing fierce hot flames, and Ava’s heart skidded to a stop as she clutched the bundle of clothes to her chest.
She was the first to break the spell. “Having a good look?”
His lip curled into a cruel sneer. “Nothing I haven’t seen before.” Then he spun on his heels and stormed back into the bedroom, slamming the door.
“Sweet dreams,” she yelled at the closed door. She let out a shuddery breath and sank down onto the couch.
