Seductive Studs & Sirens {1}: Deadman's Hand

This is my first time joining the Seductive Studs and Sirens, but looking around I think I'll enjoy the company.  Today I'm doing 150 words or less of my current work in progress, Dead Man's Hand.  Enjoy and don't forget to keep hopping ;) 


A slow grin creased Dante’s face. Taking the cigar out of his mouth, he set it on the ashtray at his elbow. “The Dead Man’s Hand?” He ran his finger over the gilded edges of his cards and seemed to contemplate Ronan for a moment. “Some consider such a hand unlucky…
Ronan shrugged his shoulders and sighed. “Unlucky? I doubt that. What happened to Doc Holiday was a coincidence, nothing more.” The clock on the mantel struck midnight – each chime resonating within him. It was time to finish this. Either he won the money he needed or he didn’t. He was tired of Dante toying with him. “Look, either fold or show me what you have. I have class in the morning.”

Dante lifted a dark brow. “Yet here you are…such a naughty boy.”

Ronan’s hackles rose. This was one of the reasons that he didn’t like the other man. He was too arrogant, too in-your-face, too condescending. And too much temptation for a guy who hasn’t been laid in over six months.
