This week, my swoon is from Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones!

So I grasped his cloak and pulled him close, crushing our lips together in a kiss.

The kiss is sweeter than sin and fiercer than temptation. I am not gentle, I am not kind; I am rough and wild and savage. I bite, I nip, I lick, I devour. I want and I want and I want and I want. I hold nothing back.

Elisabeth, he exhales into me, and I feel my lungs, my body, my loins fill with his breath. He fills me and I want to be filled by him. I open my mouth to let him in, but his hands come up and wrap themselves around my arms.

No, no, no, I think. Don't push me away. Light my fire. Make me burn.

But the Goblin King doesn't push me away. He grips me closer, and I am met. Our lips part and greet like partners in a dance, meeting, twining, clinging. When he pulls away, I moan, but his mouth never travels far, kissing the corners of my lips and my chin, his nose brushing the skin of my cheek.

Read my review of Wintersong

I had a lot of different thoughts on this book, but I really liked the author's writing, and the kissing scenes were always lovely. =)
