This week, my swoon is from Frostblood by Elly Blake!
"I promised you a secret," he finally said, his eyes glittering in the candlelight, "and I can't think of any way to tell you plainer than this."
He took two strides toward me, fell to his knees, and turned my face up to his.
His lips moved over mine, the scar on his upper lip feeling pleasantly rough. His touch was tentative, but a shock of pure, toe-curling excitement shot into me. I returned the pressure eagerly. His lips were cooler than mine, but not painfully so. His temperature must have risen. I knew mine was up.
His arms slipped around my back, pressing me to his chest. My hands curled around his neck, my fingertips greedily tangling in his hair. I pressed myself closer. His fingers dove into my hair, pulling the strands free of the string that held it back.

This was a sweet scene! I love the push and pull between these two. I should finish the book and have a review up tomorrow!
