My Swoon for this week comes from:

(Kanin Chronicles #1)
Amanda Hocking 

First - The Blurb:

Will she give up her dream to follow her heart?

Bryn Aven is determined to gain status amongst the Kanin, the most powerful of the hidden tribes. But as a half-blood, winning respect is a huge challenge. Bryn's almost-human community distrusts people, and those from other tribes are almost as suspect.
She has just one goal to get ahead: to join the elite guard protecting the Kanin royal family. And Bryn's vowed that nothing will stand in her way, not even a forbidden romance with her boss, Ridley Dresden.
But her plans are put on hold when fallen hero Konstantin starts acting dangerously. Bryn loved him once, but now he's kidnapping Kanin children - stealing them from hidden placements within human families. She's sent to help stop him, but will she lose her heart in the process?

Second - The Swoon:

I stood frozen against him. I could feel the hard contours of his chest pressed against my back, warming me through my wet shirt, and I tried to slow the rapid beating of my heart so he wouldn't feel it. The whiskers from his beard tickled against my cheek and neck, and the skin of his hand felt rough on my lips. He smelled of cold, like ice and snow on the harshest days of winter.

This scene is not what it appears to be.

I first read Frostfire back in February. Now that I have the remaining two books in the series, I'm re-reading it before finishing the series.

Okay, so what do you think?
If you liked my Swoon, please leave a comment below!


  1. I tried this book, but couldn't get into it. I loved the Trylle trilogy, this one just wasn't my favorite. I'm glad you enjoyed it though! <3

  2. It's great to re-read a book before beginning the final books in the series. And I am curious about what this scene really is!

  3. Such a great swoon! One day I will start this series!

  4. I like your cover a lot better than the US version. I have this book, but have yet to read it.
