This week, my swoon is from The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid!

There was no one around to see us - no one to fool into believing he cared for me. But his lips were pressed to mine, his mouth soft and warm.

Bewilderment gripped me and held me perfectly still as his hand slid through my hair. What a curious sensation. As he rubbed his lips over mine, a strange melting feeling ran down through my limbs. His clever fingers knew that, too. They chased the sensation, smoothing down my neck. He was not weak. I could feel the power in his grip as he wrapped his fingers around my neck. But there was no threat in it. It felt sweeter than any touch I had ever known.

His mouth grew more demanding. My hands somehow found their way to his body, testing the density of his muscled upper arms. Below us, the planet was receding, the darkness of space enveloping us, dizzying. I leaned against him. Every part of me seemed to be awakening, thrumming to life. I hadn't realized it was possible to feel this way. I was a stranger to myself in this moment, the mundanity of everyday reality no longer imaginable.

His body seemed a wonder, suddenly. I ran my palms over his feverishly hot skin, over his broad chest. He stepped into me, putting my back against the wall. Over his shoulder, I spied the curvature of Lumina shrinking away, the stars expanding in all directions.

His mouth opened mine, ad I tasted his tongue.

This! This was living. This was being alive, being human.

I never wanted it to end.
