Swoon Thursday (#110): Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong

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

- 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 Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong!


She kissed him. There was no forethought. No moment of indecision or even of decision. She saw that haunted look in his eyes, and she wanted to make it go away. So she kissed him.

He hesitated only a moment, not even lon enough for her to register that her was hesitating, and by the time she did, he was kissing her back, a deep, incredible kiss that banished every awkward, behind-the-village-hall buss from her mind, as if they could not even be called by the same name. This was what she'd been looking for in those fumbling embraces that had left her feeling as if someone had dangled the sweetest honey wine just out of reach, and she could see it, smell it, but could not grasp it, could not taste it. This was what she'd been aching for. A kiss, just like this. A young man, just like this.

- ARC, page 158




I LOVED THIS BOOK! It was riveting and exciting... and in the end, heartbreaking, but it will make book three that much sweeter! I hope.
