This week I'm sharing 7 paragraphs from my WIP "Mountains and Skyscrapers". Elle and Michael are having a 'first date' of sorts, at the Denver Art Museum. She knows that she shouldn't be as interested in him as she is, because, after all, he is trying to buy her design firm. Not that he knows it's her firm yet, of course.

He turned to her and put his hand under her chin, tilting her face up to his. “I do trust what my eyes tell me.”
Her cheeks flushed and she turned away. “You should come over and paint with me sometime. I’m curious to see what you would come up with.”
