This week, my swoon is from Heartstone by Elle Katharine White!
I took his good hand. He was trembling, or perhaps I was. Maybe we both were.
"I do," I said. "I love you, Alastair."
And then, because I'd fought through dragonfire and death and knew at last what courage looked like, I kissed him.
I thought I knew everything there to know about fire. I'd smelled it, touched it, almost tasted it, but for all that, I had no idea. This was the fire that bound the Daired bloodline to dragonkind. Love, and passion, and wildness - all burned in that single touch, searing my lips even as it seared my soul.
When we separated we were both breathless.

Ohh, lovely swoon sweetie :D Just commented on another blog, with this as a WoW, lol :) Now I'm even more curious about it. But aw, first kiss at the end of the book? How rude :D But still, I do like the swoon. <3ReplyDelete
I think you'd like this book, Carina! The romance is really sweet, and slow-burn. I didn't mind the slow-burn. ;)Delete
I never heard of this one and so, as I love Pride & Prejudice and that whole series about the Hobbit and the ring AND all of Terry Brooks' fantastic books I will spring for the higher price on this one. Have you read the latter author's book. TV had a series months ago, Shannara Chronicles, and I am hoping that they give us a second season.ReplyDelete
I've not read any of Terry Brook's books! Though I have heard of the Shannara Chronicles, and the books are on my TBR. :D If you read Heartstone, I hope you like it, Sheila!Delete
