Okay! So this weeks SWOON comes from
Immortal City
Scott Speer
Although there is not a whole lot of romance in this novel, the interactions which occur between Maddy and Jackson occur often enough to keep the interest flowing. In fact, it would be fair for me to say that I enjoyed the story and had a hard time putting it down.
Here's what I consider to be one of Maddy and Jackson's (Jacks) swoon worthy moments:
Maddy looked at his face against her chest, at the divine, flawless features that still took her breath away. She reached out and, with the tip of her finger, touched his forehead. Then, as if it were a healing instrument, she traced the finger along his skin, across his temple, and down the line of his jaw, feeling the stubble of his beard. Finally, she traced up his chin and brushed his lips.
Jacks's eyes opened. He sat up and faced her, his wings expanding behind him, bathing the two of them in faint blue light. She watched him carefully and waited for him to stop her. He didn't. She touched him again, this time on his arm. She traced her finger along his forearm, up past his bicep, to his shoulder. Then, after hesitating only a moment, she moved her finger delicately onto the ridge of his wing. Jacks let out a heavy sigh, and suddenly, faster than Maddy could see, his powerful hands were on her arms. The grip was almost painful.
He kissed her fully and deeply. She pressed herself into him. The electricity began to thud like a hammer between them, back and forth, growing. Their bodies entwined in the dusty light of the gym, at half-court, the empty bleachers their only witnesses. Maddy drew a gasp of pleasure as Jacks lifted her onto his lap. He wrapped his wings around her body and she wrapped her legs around him.
