Swoon Thursday (#157): The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins

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


- From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering

- 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 from The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins!


The princess rose to her toes again, circling his neck with her wet hands, and pressing her mouth against his. He jolted in surprise before reacting. This time, he did not remain still.

Paxton's free hand rounded her waist and pulled her body firmly against his. His mouth took over, his lips moving against hers in a heated rush of ownership that caused her entire body to react.

He growled against her lips. "Will you never cease to surprise me?"

Aerity was overwhelmed and could only cling to him, her eyes stinging with emotion as she soaked in all he'd held back, all he'd tried to keep hidden. She hadn't been a fool after all - he'd felt this thing between them as much as she had.

This was a really pivotal moment in the book, not just in terms of the romance! I adore the romance - my only wish is that book two will have more swoony scenes, and preferably in-depths ones! ;D

    1. Thank you! I'm sorry to hear that! Perhaps because it's in third person?
