This week, my swoon is from Madame X by Jasinda Wilder!
I feel his heart beating a doublehammer rhythm in his chest, as furious as my own. My arms... slipping serpentine around his neck, hands cupping the back of his head and his nape beneath his hair, soft, firm, warm, strong.
I kiss him.
Push up with my mouth and engage his kiss.
All the world ceases to exist. Fades. Flickers and gutters, a candle flame extinguished.
Oh, that kiss.
It is all.
The whole of history and the entire potentiality of the future.

I love the cadence of the writing in this book! So lyrical, especially for a romance novel. This book is heartbreaking and yet so good!
