Swoon Thursday (#203): Heartstone by Elle Katharine White

This week, my swoon is from Heartstone by Elle Katharine White!


I took his good hand. He was trembling, or perhaps I was. Maybe we both were.

"I do," I said. "I love you, Alastair."

And then, because I'd fought through dragonfire and death and knew at last what courage looked like, I kissed him.

I thought I knew everything there to know about fire. I'd smelled it, touched it, almost tasted it, but for all that, I had no idea. This was the fire that bound the Daired bloodline to dragonkind. Love, and passion, and wildness - all burned in that single touch, searing my lips even as it seared my soul.

When we separated we were both breathless.

    1. I think you'd like this book, Carina! The romance is really sweet, and slow-burn. I didn't mind the slow-burn. ;)
