This week, my swoon is from Buried Heart by Kate Elliott!

(Y'all, I'm sharing a slightly swoonier-than-usual swoon this week. I hope no one minds! Besides the swoony nature of the scene, I liked the mood of it - and the last two lines.)

He sweeps me up int this arms and carries me through the open doors into the bedchamber. The bed stands in the center, the only object left in the room. He pushes aside the draped netting. His manner is as solemn and desperate as my own, none of the laughter and wrestling and endearing awkwardness of our other times. Because the lamp has been left on the balcony, we are left in the shadow of each other, communicating by sighs, by the tough of lips and the pressure of hands.

The heart has its own speech. That is the only language and light that we need.

- Hardcover, page 157

I loved this series and I'm very happy with the conclusion. It's a great series to binge-read!
