This week, my swoon is from Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne!
He reaches up a tentative hand and grazes the back of my neck with his fingers. His touch is warm, but it sends a shiver down my spine nonetheless. I'm rigid, frozen.
It's unclear which one of us leans in first. I don't know if we draw closer of our own volition, or if we do so simply because there's no other way to go. But I do know the exact moment our lips touch, and the jolt of it sweeps everything else away.
His breath warms my face, sending a heat through my limbs and thawing me out. His lips are soft, and his arms are wonderfully solid. I marvel at how long it's been since I've touched someone with any tenderness at all, and I'm parched for it. I lean into him, burying my hands in his hair. And though I know I should stop this, it would be as futile as ceasing to breathe.

I loooooved this book! This was a no-brainer swoon choice this week. Dineas and Zivah have a hate-to-love, slow-burn romance that has me feeling all the feels. I want more of them in Umbertouched!
