Peter held her head in his strong hands, leaning her back over the sink and scooping the water over her hair. And she let him.

Though her body wanted to struggle, she held it still. Though she longed to scream, she suppressed the sound to little whimpers and gazed up at his broad chest, his stern face.

~ page 72, Hearts Afire February Anthology: Captive Flame by Rhiannon Leith

Are you feeling teased?

Come back on the 4th for my Review!


Oh my. He's washing her hair? Kind of odd, but hey, if he looks like the guy on the cover he can wash my hair any day and I won't even have to suppress a scream.

I had nothing today as I haven't started anything since SF. Maybe tonight. We'll see.

She's a creature formed of fire, so she is a little scared of water. *wink*

Oh, that makes sense then. I was thinking how nice it would be to have a man wash my hair.

A powerful feeling! Great teaser!

Here is my teaser from The Trophy Bride’s Tale by Cyrilla Barr (page 1):

I have never seen an execution! I am terrified & tremble uncontrollably now as I stand on the fringes of restless crowd desperately hoping that no one will notice me in my shabby pilgrim’s weeds. At that I saw his face break into a warm smile and I knew I had at last reached safer ground.

A creature made of fire with water pouring into her hair? Coupled with a broad chest? Sounds steamy to me ! :)

Here's my teaser: http://jewelknits.blogspot.com/2010/11/teaser-tuesdays-november-2-2010.html

Hmmm, she does not like her hair washed? I love having someone wash my hair. Intriguing teaser! My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/11/teaser-tuesdays-outside-the-ordinary-world.html

Lol, one of these days I'll actually be reading something when you do this....but...yeah, not this time either. This is just a drive by hello :)

She's braver than me: I'd be kicking and screaming!

Thanks so much for delving into my head. It's scary in here sometimes, so it is nice to have company! Don't step on the zephyr...
