Swoon Thursday ~ 11/21/13

The fabulous girls over at YA Bound created this super HOT meme.  Here's how it works.

From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.

Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on your blog! I want to know & so do the chicks at YABound!

 When a fellow RN jokingly predicts that Beth Roberts will meet a tall, ripped and totally lick-o-licious stranger who will fulfill her deepest desires, it’s supposed to be from across a crowded room, not giving CPR to a wedding guest. Given her tragic love life, Beth has no desire to become involved again, but who could have predicted the ponytailed doctor with the mischievous smile would break through her defenses?

Dr. Gabriel North blamed himself for his wife’s death. Now, after two years of battling guilt and meaningless hookups, he’s ready to move on. When he sees the sexy brunette at his friend’s wedding, his attraction is swift and strong, and he wastes no time in pressing his advantage. One night with the woman who makes him feel alive again isn’t enough, but gaining her trust as a man was going to take more than medical school had prepared him for.

Shifting his hold on her hand, Gabe skimmed his fingers over the inside of Beth's wrist.  Her pulse jolted, and then settled into a quick, steady rhythm before he let go of her.  He wanted to press his mouth to that silken spot of skin, to feel the rush of her heartbeat against his tongue and know he'd caused it.  "Is the world going to end if you don't finish that tonight?"

"Well no, but..."

"Then stay for a while, with me."  (Kindle Location 370)

This is a quickie novella and so far very sexy!  What ya think?  Have a swoon for me?  Leave me a comment.
