This week, my swoon is from The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson!

His arm circled around me, holding me tight, and it felt like all the grief he would ever be allowed was in that grip. I could only think of the cruelty of his new position and what was immediately expected of him.

His hold finally loosened, and he looked at me, creases at the corners of his eyes, a smile through his exhaustion. 

"Stay with me?" I asked. 

His lips met mine, and he whispered against them between kisses. "Are you trying to seduce me, Your Highness?"

"Absolutely," I said, and leisurely ran the tip of my tongue along the ridge of his lip like it was final course of the evening.
