Reaction when pup accidentally* bites

Veda just bit my hand pretty hard while we were playing tug. It's happened before but I know it's an accident. She just tries to get ahold of more rope on her end.
The thing is though, she's 7 months old today and her adult teeth are all finishing up coming in and she gets a real strong hold of things when we're playing tug. Needless to say, it hurts!! She broke a little skin but no blood or anything.
So my question is, how should I react towards this? When it's happened in the past, I yell ow or something (again, it hurts) and stop playing with her for a little while just so I can cool my temper. Is this a suitable way to respond? Is there anything I can do to stop this aside from be more careful?
