This week, my swoon is from Traitor Angels by Anne Blankman!
"This time when I touch you," he said, "you won't need to ask what I'm doing."
His hand guided my face closer to his. So closer I could feel warmth emanating from his skin and hear the soft exhalation of his breath. My heart started to race, and my eyes drifted closed just as his lips brushed mine, as softly as air.
He deepened the kiss, his lips hot and insistent on mine, and everything within me turned to fire. So this is what it feels like, I thought as I kissed him back, winding my arms around him, tightening until I could feel the thundering of his heart through the layers of our clothes.

I liked this book a lot! It's set in the 1600s, which is a pretty unique time period in YA lit. Very cool book, and an enjoyable one at that!
