This week, my swoon is from Empire of Dust by Eleanor Herman!
For a second, she thinks she's gone too far. Now his eyes are black. Blacker than the sea at midnight, and she's can't tell what he's thinking. "I do," he says gruffly, and then he leans forward, closing the gap between them. His lips touch hers and suddenly he's kissing her, hard and deep.
And she's kissing him back.
Heat floods her, rolling in waves from her head to her toes. She leans in, and his tongue curls around hers even as one of his hands finds her waist. The pain is still inside her, but it pulses now, hot and passionate, surging into her fingers until she can't help but let them run through his hair.

Heph and Katerina are one of my favorite ships in this series! There are multiple ships (but no triangles or weird love geometries), which is fun. :D
