Swoon Thursday ~ 12/15/16

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 Promise of Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles #1)

Catalia "Cat" Fisa is a powerful clairvoyant known as the Kingmaker. This smart-mouthed soothsayer has no interest in her powers and would much rather fly under the radar, far from the clutches of her homicidal mother. But when an ambitious warlord captures her, she may not have a choice…

Griffin is intent on bringing peace to his newly conquered realm in the magic-deprived south. When he discovers Cat is the Kingmaker, he abducts her. But Cat will do everything in her power to avoid her dangerous destiny and battle her captor at every turn. Although up for the battle, Griffin would prefer for Cat to help his people willingly, and he's ready to do whatever it takes to coax her…even if that means falling in love with her.


His mouth brushes the top of my head, sending warm tingles across my scalp. "We'll leave here soon. I promise." 
"Is that a binding vow?" I'm only half joking. We have to go. 
Griffin tilts my chin up until our eyes meet. "I love you, Cat. I would do anything to keep you safe. That is my binding vow."

I'd never heard of this book until it was recommended to me by a friend when she saw I was in the midst of an ACOMAF-fueled book hangover, but I blew through it last weekend and really enjoyed it! My heart definitely did a fair amount of flipping... (GRIFFIN, y'all <3)

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

  1. YAAAAAAAAASSSSS! OMG this is one of my favorite books this year! With its sequel right behind it. I love this series! I was really pulling for Amanda to win the Goodreads Debut Author award. Still, this book deserves every possible accolade! I am dying to read Heart on Fire. More swoon! <3

    Great post, Val. I also share a swoon from an adult fantasy novel today! =)
