Swoon Thursday (#97): Ignite by Sara B. Larson

This week, my swoon is from Ignite by Sara B. Larson!

My gaze dropped to his mouth, and then he was pulling my face forward, slowly, so that I was weak with need by the time his lips met mine. I immediately melted into the gentleness of his touch. This was all I'd ever wanted and never thought I deserved. As his mouth moved on mine, all the longing and love I'd suppressed for long surged up, urging me closer to him. Ignoring my back, and my dirty clothes, and everything else except Damian, I clung to his shoulders and pulled him toward me, until his body pressed against mine. He carefully wrapped his free arm around me, trying to avoid my back wound. But I didn't care about the pain - it was just part of me at this point. I kissed him harder, deeper, wanting more. The taste of him, the smell of him, the feel of Damian was everywhere. He was my everything.

Fantasy, yo! What did you all think of this week's excerpt?


  1. That's quite an intriguing swoon. I'm wondering how she got hurt.
    At least his kiss made her forget the pain.
