This week, my swoon is from The Immortal Heights by Sherry Thomas!
He took a pretty glass jar from the cabinet. The jar was filled with sweets. He opened the jar and held it out toward her. "Try one."
She put a green-striped bonbon in her mouth. And when he kissed her, the bonbon melted with a burst of freshness: mint, basil, and a hint of silver moss. But it was he who made her pulse race: his hands in her hair, the sinew of his arms beneath her fingertips, the scent of Pears soap that still clung to his hair and skin.
- ARC, pages 125-126
I love this series so much! Quite possibly one of my favorite series ever. Catch my review of The Immortal Heights on Sunday!

Oh, this makes me excited to read this! I haven't been looking forward to it as much as my other review copies, but this swoon reminds me what a great romance this series has. :)ReplyDelete
I've had it for a while, so I know what you mean. Since I'd gotten it months ago, I've been terrified of reading it! Glad to see others enjoy it though, that has helped my anxiety. :DDelete
