This week, my swoon is from The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon!
I smoothed my hands over his shoulders, up the slope of his neck, and at last, when my heart was pounding, his mouth took hold of mine.
In the darkness, I was nothing but feeling. Fingers pushing through my hair, climbing up the column of my spine. I pulled him closer, draping one arm around his neck, winding my fingers into rough-spun hair. He tasted of red wine and something else, something earthen and rich and just faintly amaroidal.
A callused palm came to rest against my bare stomach, where my breaths came quick and shallow. Until now, I hadn't realized how much I'd wanted him to touch me. Intimacy had no place in either of our worlds.
Warden lifted me, swinging the floor from under my feet. His hand cupped my cheek, and we broke the silence with our breathing. He held me so our foreheads touched, as if he were reassuring me that this was all right.
