Swoon Thursday ~ 11/26/15

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!

The hardcover debut of New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh and her highly acclaimed Psy/Changeling novels.
Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness. Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness.

Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would've been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf.

Then Sienna changes the rules-and suddenly, there is no more distance, only the most intimate of battles between two people who were never meant to meet. Yet as they strip away each other's secrets in a storm of raw emotion, they must also ready themselves for a far more vicious fight...

A deadly enemy is out to destroy SnowDancer, striking at everything they hold dear, but it is Sienna's darkest secret that may yet savage the pack that is her home-and the alpha who is its heartbeat.


(Note, Sienna is hanging upside down from a tree in a trap during some wolf play)

Walking close enough that he could put one hand under her nape, the other on her lower back, tilting her head up in a more comfortable position, he leaned in so close that all she could see was translucent ice blue.   
"A kiss for the big bad wolf."  Her throat locked.  The words stuck in her throat but he didn't close the distance between them.  "Yes?" Swallowing, she nodded.  "You have to say it." "Yes," she managed to force out.   
Gripping her shoulder with one hand, "Yes what?"  Some of her frustration reignited returning her voice.  "You know what, I don't think I care how far I fall."   
Laughing lips descended on hers, one big hand cupping her cheek as the other held up her neck.  It was.  She had no words for it.  This shock of sensation that speared through her, raw and primal, swelling her breasts, melting the place between her thighs.  All because those firm lips were tasting hers with a playful gentleness interspersed with more than a few nips and licks.  She moaned into his mouth, got a lips on her lower lip as her reward. (Chapter 19 of the audio) 

Yep, this is my obsession series and I love it so much.

Push and Shove (The Ghost Bird, #6)Sang Sorenson struggles with her growing feelings when the Academy boys take her in and draw her closer into their world. They work together to uncover the true secrets happening at Ashley Waters High School, where Principal Hendricks will stop at nothing to take them all down.

Adding to their complications, Nathan’s father shows up, and he’s just as ruthless and violent as ever, beating up on Nathan. Sang offers Nathan refuge in her home, but Marie is fed up with the boys. She wants them out--all of them—and wants them to take Sang with them. Where will Sang go? What will happen to Nathan? And what about Mr. Hendrick’s spies, watching all of them?

Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North will have to focus to get out of this mess, but with Sang assisting them, they’re struggling to keep control. They all promised not to make a move on Sang unless she initiates, but the tension is driving them all to distraction. With the help of Dr. Green and Mr. Blackbourne, they will have to stay strong and engaged. But A first kiss is imminent, and will cost them all more than they could ever have imagined.


"Give me that hand," he said. He snagged it before I could offer it up. He brought it over to his chest and pushed my palm against his ribs, over his heart. "You feel this?" 
My palm met with the thudding of his heart. My own seemed to be beating just as fast. "Your heart?" I asked. 
He nodded. "This is yours," he said. 
I took air in, breathing in deeply, and held it. My lips moved but no words came out. Was he really saying this? 
He clamped his hand down over mine, locking my fingers with his, keeping my hand on his chest. "It's been yours for a while. I just never told you."

This is a series of many swoons, but when I read this part, I knew I had to swoon over it this week. That's why this swoon is a couple books behind me--this is book 6 and I'm reading book 8 right now. But it's SO GOOD. This book, this series. I love it all so muuuuuch!!!

Those are our swoons for this week! What do you think? Do you have a swoon to share? Leave us a comment and link us up! (And Happy Thanksgiving if you're in the US!!!)


  1. Oh my goodness I am in love. This is why I stay away from ST because I can't not love the swoons. Thank you both for sharing these awesome babies. Adding these to my tbr pile now!
