This week, my swoon is from Gifted by H.A. Swain!
My whole body feels liquid and warm. Slowly a smile spreads over my face. I crawl toward him as he yammers on but I'm not really listening to his words, only to the sound of his voice, which is a melody I want to sing. I am overwhelmed by his kindness and his belief in me...... Its as if Aimery/Orpheus and I have tiny magnets in our bellies pulling us together. He stops talking, mid-sentence, something about confessing more. Then he blinks at me with eyes wide and uncertain as I loom up into his face. I find the notes. I sing his song and then press my lips against his and we both him, our voices in perfect harmony.

I love this kiss! It's both metaphorical and literal, with the singing references. I spliced the scene just a little, to avoid spoilers. Orpheus (who is also called Aimery) and Zimri are such a sweet couple!
