My Swoon for this week comes from the third book in the series I'm currently reading - Renegade Angels
First - the book - A Caress of Wings (Renegade Angels #1.5) by Sylvia Day 

Author of "Bared to You" and "A Hunger So Wild "Sylvia Day takes us into a shadowy underworld, where a powerful angel breaks all the rules by falling for the mortal whose life she's saved... Chained in the dark, Trevor Descansos endures pain and terror as vampires slowly drain the life from him. He finds mercy in Sentinel Siobhan, a beautiful avenging angel with lethal wings. She draws Trevor from the depths of hell, wrapping him in the softness of the same feathers that she wielded like blades to cut down his tormentors. Ageless and eternal, Siobhan has seen too much to be surprised by anything, but the mortal she finds in the pit of a vampire den shakes her to the core. Broken and near death, his ravaged masculine beauty stirs the heart she hadn't realized she possessed. Though she's tasked with eradicating the vampire disease sweeping across her world, she nurses Trevor back to health, healing him even as he awakens a forbidden longing. But the true test has yet to come. Siobhan faces an even darker fate than Trevor's, as she falls from grace into mortal love...

Second - The Swoon worthy moment:
"Trevor." Her voice was husky.
Damn it. Getting turned on now was only going to freak her out more. "Yes?"
She moved so fast he couldn't follow her. One minute she was about a yard away, and the next, she was pressed up against him and kissing him with passionate inexperience, her soft lips closed as she mashed them against his.
He caught her up with a groan, lifting her feet from the floor, his tongue sliding along the seam of her lips until they opened with a gasp and let him inside. He licked into her mouth, stroking into the warmly sweet recesses, his mind reeling with the headiness of her flavor and the feel of her surprisingly lush body in his arms.
Lust exploded through him in a potent rush...
Third - I have to say that I'm really enjoying this series. Sylvia writes in a way that captivates you right from the start.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 Stars. And once again, I warn that this series is for a more mature audience due to some of it's explicit content.
