I used one of my favorite quotes from my book "Leather Kisses" as my teaser...let me know if you think it captivates your attention:
Teaser from Leather Kisses:
"If I have learned one thing from this detrimental relationship, it's that nothing is as it seems. Everything and everyone has another side, another layer, another face, and another story."
I guess this would be the teaser. It's actually what I wrote for the back cover of my book edited down.
