This week, my swoon is from Caraval by Stephanie Garber!
Julian's fingers were still at her mouth. Slowly she kissed them, one by one. Just a gentle press of her lips, but she could feel how it affected him by the way his fingers gently dug into her lower back. She had to concentrate to keep her voice calm, even as she looked up at his face half eclipsed by darkness, and sad, "I'm not afraid of your secrets."
"I wish I could say you shouldn't be." Julian stroked her lip a final time, then covered her mouth with his own. Saltier than his fingers and more intense than the hand now moving down her spine or the one tightening around her waist, he held her as if she might slip through his grip and she clung to him, loving the feel of the muscles that lined his back.
He mumbled words against her lips, too low for her to hear, but she imagined she got a strong impression of what he wanted to say. as he coaxed her lips apart, letting Scarlett taste the coolness of his tongue and the tips of his teeth as he grazed her lower lip.
