This week, my swoon is from Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller!


Though I'd die of embarrassment if anyone on my crew knew I said this, I add, "Please, Riden. I want this. Don't you want this?"

That does the trick. I finally feel movement under own lips. It's soft, unsure. Curious to be coming from Riden, who has always seemed so sure of himself. Perhaps he needs more encouragement.

I trace his upper lip with the tip of my tongue. 

The change is instant. Before I know it, he's got his hand at the back of my head, the other on the side of my thigh. I move my lips down to his neck, teasing him in just the right places to get his heart pumping even faster.

But he's done with letting me having the all the fun, With a hand at my chin, he brings my lips back up to his. He takes control of the kiss, setting his own rhythm and pace. 

- ARC, pages 200-201




I liked this book a lot! It was entertaining, and the romance was sweet (though I definitely wanted more). I can't wait to read the next book!

  1. This is definitely swoon-worthy. <3 Love how you decided to choose an excerpt from this book - pirates aren't popular enough in YA literature. Riden seems like such an interesting character. :) Great excerpt Alyssa! :)
