This week, my swoon is from The Falconer by Elizabeth May!
"[Redacted] looks at me, so still and quiet. I brace myself for his words, unsure of what he'll say. Terrified by what he'll say. He doesn't speak. Instead, he grasps me by the collar of my coat and presses his lips to mine. [Redacted] kisses me deeply, with an urgency I never thought him capable of. He kisses me like he knows he's going to die. He kisses me like the world is going to end.
I cling to his shoulders and tug at his jacket, bringing us closer. I want nothing more than to hold him and bury myself in his arms and forget everything. I want time to stop.
He pulls back and rests his forehead against mine. "I'm scared, too."

I loved this book, you all. Historical fantasy? ONE OF THE BEST. And the romance in this book? It's definitely one of my favorites. I took out the guy's name because, for those of you that want to read this book, I don't want to spoil even that :D
