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.
