Swoon Thursday (#58): Gilded by Christina Farley

Swoon Thursday is a hot meme hosted by the fabulous ladies at YA Bound!


- From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering

- Try to make the swoon excerpt 140 characters (or less), if you are going to tweet about it. Use the hashtag #YABOUND when tweeting


This week, my swoon is from Gilded by Christina Farley!


Marc moves his body so he’s facing me. His lips are so close I can’t stop imagining how easily he could pull me into his arms. 

“I saw an amazing girl standing up to a warrior. A girl who transformed into a bird and escaped. Don’t tell me that isn’t something.” 

I want to believe Marc. I reach for him, his skin burning against my palms. Our lips meet, breathless. His lips are soft, tender, and I’ve lost control. Sinking into his kisses. Drinking in his smell and touch. I trail my hands from his face down to his shoulders and follow the line of his biceps. I draw him closer. So close until our bodies are practically one. 

Because I won’t lose this moment. This kiss. 

Haemosu can’t take this from me. 

I won’t let him.

- ARC, page 172

    1. Yes, both are so fabulous! And that was the key to the romance in this book - sweet, tender moments. Thank you!

  8. Such a lovely swoon. I love that it's a timid kiss at first but builds from there. And I especially love the the fact that she wants to fight for the kiss and not let anyone take their moment away from them!

    1. It really is! And I think this swoon is almost symbolic, in that sense.
