This week, my swoon is from How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by Kerrelyn Sparks!


"For now, there are only a few words I want to hear." He pressed gently on her lower lip. "You can tell me faster, slower, harder, and - " He leaned closer till his mouth was only a breath away from hers.

Sweet goddesses, yes. Please kiss me.

He pressed his lips lightly against hers, then pulled back to look at her. "Softer."

Was that it? She needed more.

"Then there's my favorite-" He cradled her head with his hands. "- don't stop."

Her hands slipped up to his shoulders. "Don't stop."

He smiled, then leaned over to give her a slow, languid kiss, one that made her feel cherished and warm, as if she could gently melt into him. And the more she melted, the more she wanted to feel. There was the sweet pressure and nibbling he was doing to her lips, the strength of his broad shoulders beneath her hands, the softness of his hair as it curled around her fingers.

Sorry y'all, I stopped there to keep things (mostly) PG-13. :D I loved this scene. This is the first time that they touch each other, and it's also Luciana's first kiss. =) (Her first, well, everything. Hint hint.) I loved this book!
