This week, my swoon is Dream A Little Dream by Kerstin Gier!
"Dreaming somehow wasn't any fun without you," he said. And then he leaned forward and kissed me carefully on the mouth.
For a few seconds I forgot to breathe, then I felt my arms rising and going around his neck of their own accord to draw him closer. We weren't kissing so cautiously now, but much more intensely. Henry put one hand on my waist, the other went behind my head and buried itself gently in my hair. I closed my eyes. This was just the way kisses ought feel, I was sure.

*I'd forgotten to note the place of this passage! It's close to the end, more than three-quarters of the way into the book.
I love Kerstin's new book! All of her books are so lighthearted and yet utterly creative. Brilliant!
