Swoon Thursday ~ 10/20/16

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.

The pleasure of your company is requested at Warbury Park. Four lovely ladies will arrive… but only one can become a duchess.

James, the scandalously uncivilized Duke of Harland, requires a bride with a spotless reputation for a strictly business arrangement. Lust is prohibited and love is out of the question.

Four ladies. Three days. What could go wrong?

She is not like the others…

Charlene Beckett, the unacknowledged daughter of an earl and a courtesan, has just been offered a life-altering fortune to pose as her half-sister, Lady Dorothea, and win the duke’s proposal. All she must do is:

* Be the perfect English rose [Ha!]

* Breathe, smile, and curtsy in impossibly tight gowns [blast Lady Dorothea’s sylph-like figure]

* Charm and seduce a wild duke [without appearing to try]

* Keep said duke far, far from her heart [no matter how tempting]

When secrets are revealed and passion overwhelms, James must decide if the last lady he should want is really everything he needs. And Charlene must decide if the promise of a new life is worth risking everything . . . including her heart.

His hand cupped her face, his fingers splayed across her cheek, gently guiding her head back to give him more access.  When his tongue slid along her lips, she tasted of chocolate and a warning hint of red chili.  The slow, teasing kiss made it difficult to remember why she would ever want to stop him.  Instead, she wanted more. 
She opened her lips and he answered the invitation, his tongue slipping deeper.  Strong fingers tugged at the ribbon tying her braid, loosening the tangles until her fair fell around her shoulders and heat swept through her body. 
Gathering her curls in his fists and pulling her bead back, he stared into her eyes.  "God help me, I want you," he groaned.  (page 124)

How long can either of them resist?  Good question.  Loving this book.

Fire & Brimstone (Neighbor from Hell, #8)What happens when a Bradford with questionable OCD, a tempter and a reputation for making his employees cry falls for the woman that refuses to accept the fact that he’s fired her and was terrifyingly more of a Bradford than he was?

Well, we can’t share that here, because it would be seriously inappropriate, but we’re sure that you can see where this is leading…

To the altar or a stint in the slammer, either one is possible when it comes to the Neighbor from Hell Series.


Brushing her lips with his, and denying her the kind of kiss that she needed right now, he said, "Thought you might want to know that I'm falling for you, too," he announced and before she could say anything, or freak out since that's what she was most likely going to do given the circumstances, his lips were back on hers and he was kissing her with everything he had.

This series is hilarious and I LOVE the romance. I'm having so much fun reading this book!

Those are our swoons this week! What about you? Leave us a comment & a link.
