This week, my swoon is from Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton!
So I didn't say anything else as I closed the last of the distance between us.
He said he would have torn the desert apart looking for me. And I felt in that kiss his desperation as his mouth found mine.
It wasn't enough with Jin; it was never enough. His hands were in the mess of my torn palace clothes, trying to find me under the too-heavy stitching and the weight of the gaudy khalat. One hand tangled into my hair, pulling away the delicate gold circlet that still clung there. He freed it from my hair, casting it aside, pulling pieces of the palace away from me, trying to return me to him.
It was like being caught in a wildfire, desperate for breath, like if we stopped we would extinguish. Without thinking, I pulled my hands away from his chest. It took one quick movement for my torn khalat to join his shirt in the heap on the groun, until I was waring nothing but the thin linen chemise underneath.

I loved this book! You can enter to win a paperback copy of Rebel of the Sands HERE, if you're interested. Get ready for the amazing sequel!
I just finished We'll Meet Again by Mary Higgins Clark and it was so swoon worthy. Not in the romantic way, but because of the never-ending suspense.ReplyDelete
Traitor of the Soul sounds pretty interesting. I haven't heard of the author before but I'm really interested to try.
Ahhh, so not really swoony, LOL. It's actually Traitor to the Throne. The series is great!Delete
Ohhh great swoon! Definitely leaves you wanting to read more! I still haven't gotten to read the first book in the series. I've heard so many great things about it tho. It's been waiting on my TBR list for a while now. lol! I just have to find timeReplyDelete
Oh yeah, and I sort of cut off the scene! There were a few swoony scenes between Jin and Amani in this book.Delete
You should binge-read the books, Julie! I think book three is set for Winter 2018, which is a year away. ;)
oh wow...what a swoon!! I love that scene.ReplyDelete
Yes! It was a really wonderful scene overall. :DDelete
Ooh, I hope you're enjoying this. I had fun with the first book, I think I'd like to continue the series :)ReplyDelete

Great scene! I really need to start this series ASAP!ReplyDelete
You totally should, Carole!Delete
I still need to read REBEL OF THE SANDS! It's been sitting on my shelf for ages, begging me to pick it up. I think I'll have to move it up on my TBR list because that scene was definitely swoony! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Hope you're having a great week, Alyssa!
Girl, get on that! Or maybe binge-read the trilogy? Book two doesn't really end in a cliffhanger, though it definitely leaves you wanting more.Delete
You're welcome! Have a great weekend, Ashtyn. =)
After reading this, maybe I should read TTTT sooner.. haha. I really enjoyed that snippet! Thanks for sharing :DReplyDelete
