This week, my swoon is from Blood Guard by Megan Erickson!

(From Athan's POV. This is a reunion scene in the middle of the book, hence the tears!)

I placed her on the ground, and she stared up at me with wide eyes as I gripped her face. A cocktail of pleasure and pin swirled in my chest as I stared at her lips, the ones I'd dreamed of kissing for days. I reached up and pushed back her hood. She'd dyed her hair black and chopped it off. Her beautiful light hair was gone, and I actually mourned it a little. I rubbed the dark strands between my fingers.

"Athan," she choked out.

I closed my eyes and dropped my forehead to hers. "Tendra."

Her fingers tangled in my hair, nails digging into my scalp. Something soft brushed my lips, a whisper of a touch, and I thought I imagined it. Then lips pressed against mine. My eyes flew open, and there was Tendra, kissing my while tears slid down her cheeks.

I'll post my review of this book tomorrow! It was good - a much-needed good vampire romance. I can't wait to read the companion sequel!

  3. oh my...I love a good vampire romance and what a swoony teaser. It almost made me cry here.

  4. I enjoyed this one but not quite as much as I had hoped. I'm looking forward to the next one in the series to see where things are going to go from where this one left off. It sounds like it's going to be good. I'll read anything from Megan Erickson tho. lol

  5. Woo!! Glad you liked this one so much! I'll be honest, I tend to avoid vampire romances but this one sounds great and the teaser has definitely piqued my interest!
