This week, my swoon is from What the Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries!
***Adult book alert! But this makes up for last week's not-so-hot swoon.***
She froze. "What do you think you're doing" "Tempting you," he murmured, then covered her mouth with his.
Oh, Lord help her. His lips were on hers, hot and hard and demanding, and that annoying fluttering in her belly began. The whole world seemed to tilt sideways, sending her spiraling down into a place where hear and longing and need seemed perfectly appropriate.
At some point she must have opened her mouth, for his tongue swept inside, surprising her. Then melting her. He delved deep ina motion far more intimate than the play of their hands earlier.

I'll leave you with that...
This book is actually really good, for a historical romance! Most historical romances follow the same pattern, but this one was unique. And the sex doesn't happen until pretty late in the book. That up there? Doesn't lead to one (which I sort of prefer!). When I say late in the book, I mean, like, around 50% and past maybe (I can't exactly remember).
But trust me, Sabrina Jefferies keeps the chemistry ALIVE, throughout the entire book. Without needing more than two (I believe it was two) sex scenes. More power to her!
So, what about you? What made you swoon this week?
