Swoon Thursday 9/15/16

Who doesn't LOVE a good swoon?!  We love them for sure!  Check out our swoon below and then add to the fun.

Post anything that made you swoon, past or present read.  Include the cover, blurb and links.  Please no spoilers.

A Devil's Bargain

Easily the shyest Wallflower, Evangeline Jenner stands to become the wealthiest, once her inheritance comes due. Because she must first escape the clutches of her unscrupulous relatives, Evie has approached the rake Viscount St. Vincent with a most outrageous proposition: marriage!

Sebastian's reputation is so dangerous that thirty seconds alone with him will ruin any maiden's good name. Still, this bewitching chit appeared, unchaperoned, on his doorstep to offer her hand. Certainly an aristocrat with a fine eye for beauty could do far worse.

But Evie's proposal comes with a condition: no lovemaking after their wedding night. She will never become just another of the dashing libertine's callously discarded broken hearts--which means Sebastian will simply have to work harder at his seductions...or perhaps surrender his own heart for the very first time in the name of true love.

From Avon Books


Straining against him, she searched blindly for his hot, teasing mouth, the silken stroke of his tongue.  He gave it to her,his kiss gentle but sure.  She curled her free arm around his neck to keep from falling, while he kept the other wrist pressed against the wall, their pulses throbbing hard together beneath the wrapping of white ribbon. Another deep kiss, somehow raw and soothing at the same time...he ate at her mouth, tasted and licked inside her...the pleasure of it threatened to blot out her consciousness. No wonder...she thought dizzily.  No wonder so many women had succumbed to this man, had thrown away their reputations and their honor for him... (Page 53)

Been a while since I've read historical but this one is as luscious as I remember them to be. 

That's our swoon this week!  What about you?  Leave us a comment & a link.
