Swoon Thursday (#59): Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong

This week, my swoon is from Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong!


"They won't get far before they notice," he said as he handed her his reins. "I'll leave you here, but if you have any troubles in there, any at all, contact me. All right?"

"And if..." She swallowed. "If I don't have any troubles, may I still contact you? Or would you rather-"

He stepped forward, his hand going to the back of her head, his mouth lowering to hers. And he kissed her. Not a long kiss, but not a light one either. His lips pressed firmly against hers for a moment, before he backed up.

"I would like it very much if you contacted," he said, his hand still behind her head. Another kiss, this one little more than a brushing of the lips, before he released her, murmured good-bye, and left her there, standing in the middle of the road, holding the reins of his horse.

One of the sweeter but sadder parts of this AMAZING, INCREDIBLE fantasy read. I absolutely loved this book! It got a rare 5 stars from me :D

  1. Mmm... interesting. I'm wondering why he has left her standing in the middle of the road with his horse. Trouble or no trouble, I hope she plans to contact him after those two yummy kisses.

  6. Call me stubborn, but I want to know why he's leaving her there instead of going with her. And it better be a good reason. LOL. :D I love the moment. Great choice of swoon.
