This week, my swoon is from Returned by Kimberley Griffiths Little!

He bent down to bring his lips to mine, and my eyes burned with unshed tears at his gentleness. I closed my eyes, dreaming of the first time he kissed me at the hearth fire of my father's tent. The scent of wood smoke circling the stars. His rich exotic cloak enveloping me, melding me to him as though we had become one person, one heart.

Sometimes I'm terrible at keeping up with post-published books - I'm now getting around to reading this one! It's even more action-packed than the previous books. It was a little difficult to find a swoony scene without spoiling anything, but I love this one, especially for Jayden's reminiscing. I can't believe this series is over!


  1. Know what you mean about fitting in the post-release books. I still need to read the whole series.

    Glad its a good one, Alyssa.

  2. Great scene pick!! I haven't heard of this one I will need to check it out.

  3. I tried to read the first book of this once but I couldn't get through it at the time. I do like that excerpt though. Very swoon-worthy!

  4. I haven't heard about this series (where have I been?!) but I love the excerpt you included, Alyssa!

  5. Eee, lovely swoon. <3 Thank you for sharing Alyssa :D Gah. I still haven't read book one.. but I do have that one. Just don't have the rest of them ;) Hope you loved this final one lots. <3
