Sweet Reckoning (The Sweet Trilogy, #3) by Wendy Higgins

It’s time.

Evil is running rampant and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of the demons and their oppressive ways.

The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous—especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna’s great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she’s prepared to risk.

In the most sensual and fast-paced installment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom.


As soon as the heavy door clicked closed behind him, he pinned me to the wall with a hard kiss.  I let myself pull him close and melt into him, savoring our aloneness. I forced my mouth from his so I could talk.
"For the record, you can play guitar for me anytime."
Dark hair hung in his eyes as he loomed over me, so hot.
"Liked that, did you?"
He took my mouth again and I groaned just thinking about his hands on the guitar.  His hands on me. (Page 229)

Oh, yes.  I'm so enjoying Sweet Reckoning.  Love Kai.  Love Kai and Anna together.  So yummy.  What do you think?

Significance (Significance, #1)Significance (Significance #1) by Shelly Crane

Maggie is a seventeen year old girl who's had a bad year. She was smart and on track, but then her mom left, her dad is depressed, she's graduating - barely - and her boyfriend of almost three years dumped her for a college football scholarship. Lately she thinks life is all about hanging on by a thread and is gripping tight with everything she has.

Then she saves the life of Caleb and instantly knows there's something about him that's intriguing. But things change when they touch, sparks ignite. Literally.

They imprint with each other and she sees their future life together flash before her eyes. She learns that not only is she his soul mate, and can feel his heartbeat in her chest, but there is a whole other world of people with gifts and abilities that she never knew existed. She herself is experiencing supernatural changes unlike anything she's ever felt before and she needs the touch of his skin to survive.

Now, not only has her dad come out of his depression to be a father again, and a pain as well, but Caleb's enemies know he's imprinted and are after Maggie to stop them both from gaining their abilities and take her from him.

Can Caleb save her or will they be forced to live without each other after just finding one another?

He smiled against my finger and pulled my hand down. "Promise. But you do know, right? How I feel about you is... You're so funny and amazing and sweet and beautiful. I was half a person before you. You make me feel like everything in my life has been for a reason. I'm just happy that I-" 
I stopped him with a kiss because I knew and didn't need to hear it. I felt him chuckle as he pressed closer, pinning me against the tree, my hands on his chest between us.

I'm re-reading this series this month, since it's one of my favorites to revisit, and I am so enjoying falling in love all over again. This book, series, and Caleb & Maggie (plus all their sweetness), make me feel all kinds of happy! What do you think?

Those are our swoons for this week! What do you think? Do you have a swoon to share? Leave us a comment!
