Here is my Teaser Post
This weekend I read Blood Debt by Nancy Straight and it was AMAZING!!! Everyone should really go and get it IMMEDIATELY :) Anyway so there is this guy in it ;) his name is Drake and he's going to be my teaser hottie!
Here is his description from Camille's perspective: "my eyes took him in. I was wearing shoes with at least a 3 inch heel, and he still towered over me. His eyes were ice blue-almost turquoise. His dark blonde hair was short, and although impossible to see his frame through his tux, his body took on a "V" shape with broad shoulders and a narrow waist. A great smile spread on his face."
I don't think I got him exactly right but in my short look for him there just wasn't anyone good enough...so Chad Michael Murray is Hot so he got picked to play Drake.

Now for the teaser ;) "The words were no sooner out of my mouth when I felt my feet lifted off the ground and wind against my face. I saw nothing but a blur of trees and bushes for five full seconds until I was gently put back on the ground. The sensation had been so foreign my senses couldn't give me a good explanation of what had just happened. My feet were firmly back on the ground, my body upright, and two warm hands were on each of my shoulders. I looked up into the eyes of the person who had flown with me at ground level. It was the third time I'd seen those light blue eyes tonight: Drake stared down into mine. His hands on my shoulders were warm; he was close enough that I drank in his cologne."
What do you think? This is the first occurrence of some VERY SWOONY moments! I didn't want to share the others because I wanted you to be able to experience them yourself within the book!
INT e-copy of Blood Debt
