This week, my swoon is from RoseBlood by A.G. Howard!
(Context: she's kneeling on the ground, telling him something. He is near her, standing.)
... I can't finish, because his warm lips cover mine.
At first, he takes his time with it, guiding my face with his calloused fingertips, teasing me - feather-soft contact with just enough spark to electrify my mouth and send tingles through my teeth. We're one for an instant, lips sealed, then sipping hungry breaths before clinging again. The moment his gentle ministrations coax a whimper of pleasure from my throat, he drops to his knees and drags my body against him, gripping my lower back in a seductive bid for more.
His lips part and our tongues meet, lighting up my insides with voltaic pulses of motions, auras that burst in my mind on explosions of color flavored with caramel, midnight flowers, and singed spices = dark, tempestuous, and succsulent. I tighten my arms around his nape, fingers curled in his silken hair, lost to the magic of us.
He moans and lowers me to my back, breaking our kiss so his lips can traverse my cheek, my ear, my jaw, my neck - discovering me, tasting me - igniting the spiritual musics that only he inspires.

I loved this book! It was absolutely wonderful - especially the romance. So much lovely (triangle-free) swoon!
