This week, my swoon is from Blood Passage by Heather Demetrios!
He pulled her into a nearby alcove and, rather than let go of her hand, as she was trying to make him do, he held her palm against his lips. He gasped as her chiaan [energy] surged into his skin. He could feel her, finally, he could feel Nalia's chiaan flowing ino him, rich and spicy, achingly familiar yet more searing than before, infused with lightning. It latched onto him like a drug, intoxicating.
Raif pressed his fingers against her lips and her eyes fluttered as his chiaan seeped into her skin. He smiled as he took her face in his hands and gave her the kiss he'd been dreaming about since before she woke up, since the moment he'd left the riad in Marrakech, Nalia melted against him, her lips matching the urgency of his own.
She tasted like a heady wine, and he wanted more more more. Her arms wrapped around him and pulled him against her and he didn't care who heard them, didn't care who saw, he needed to be as close as possible to her.
