Swoon Thursday (#261): The Defiant by Lesley Livingston

This week, my swoon is from The Defiant by Lesley Livingston!

"... But I was hoping you might find the time-"

That was as far as he got before I lunged at him, reaching up to pull his head down toward me, and silencing him with the kiss I'd been waiting on for months. And months...

From his reaction, it seemed he'd been waiting on it too. I felt a rumbling in his chest that was almost a growl, and his mouth opened hungrily on mine. His arms wrapped around me and he lifted me off the ground. He smelled of horse and iron and leather and he tasted of salt and sunshine.

A reunion scene! I love it. This is in the beginning of The Defiant, which takes place months after the ending of The Valiant. Cai and Fallon are adorable!


  1. Reunion scenes are the best, especially if characters have been apart for a while. :D

  2. *clenches fist* I LOVE REUNION SCENES. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM. This one sounds so good - take me nowww.
