This week, my swoon is from Banished by Kimberley Griffiths Little!
"On the night of our marriage, I will dance for you with jewels and perfume and silks."
He wrapped his cloak around me as the sun began to sink. "Jayden, are you truly ready to be tied to the mystery of the southern lands?"
I started into his beautiful face and nodded. "Your home will be my home. Your secrets will be my secrets." Kadesh lifted me up into the strength of his arms and my toes left the cave floor. His long hair brushed my bare shoulders and I closed my eyes as he kissed my face and neck again.

*happy sigh* THIS BOOK. Such a great sequel. There were probably at least half a dozen equally swoony scenes but I picked this one because 1) it's early in the book 2) it's non-spoilery and 3) it's SUCH a sweet moment. I love this pair!
That was a beautiful swoon. Great choice!ReplyDelete

Ha! It was actually in the previous book, but that would be cute if they fell for each other this early on in the book. :DDelete
