My teaser is from the book I am reading now, Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder. I just started the book but have already been drawn into the story.
" I touched the back of his neck with my hand."

Here is what Goodreads says about Touch of Power.
Laying hands upon the injured and dying, Avry of Kazan absorbs their wounds and diseases into herself. But rather than being honored for her skills, she is hunted. Healers like Avry are accused of spreading the plague that has decimated the Fifteen Realms, leaving the survivors in a state of chaos.
