My Swoon for this week comes from:

 Crystal Kingdom
(Kanin Chronicles #3)
Amanda Hocking 

First - The Blurb:

Cast out by her kingdom and far from home, she's the Kanin people's only hope.

Bryn Aven - unjustly charged with murder and treason - is on the run. The one person who can help is her greatest enemy, the enigmatic Konstantin Black. Konstantin is her only ally against those who have taken over her kingdom and threaten to destroy everything she holds dear. But can she trust him?

As Bryn fights to clear her name, the Kanin rulers’ darkest secrets are coming to light… and now the entire troll world is on the brink of war. Will it tear Bryn from Ridley Dresden, the only guy she’s ever loved? And can she join forces with Finn Holmes and the Trylle kingdom? One thing is certain: an epic battle is underway—and when it’s complete, nothing will ever be the same…

Second - The Swoon:

He pushed me back, and I began to stumble over my feet, but his arms were there, holding me up, carrying me until I felt my back pressing against the icy metal of the truck. His kisses were fierce and hungry, his teeth just barely scraping against my skin, sending delicious heat surging through my body.

I matched his ferocity, wrapping my legs around him, burying my fingers in the tangles of his hair.

This scene was quite intense and there was a lot of emotion as Bryn and Ridley made the most of a rare opportunity. Definitely one of my most favorite moments in the book.

Crystal Kingdom is the third and final installment to this series and it was a great ending.

My Rating: 5 out of 5
