Swoon Thursday ~ 4/23/20

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.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan continues her sexy new series, as the Ferraros—a Chicago crime family—use their power as shadow riders to protect their empire and the ones they love…

Billionaire playboy Ricco Ferraro knows no other life. Being a shadow rider is in his blood - but so is a haunting desperation stemming from the secrets of his dark past. His recklessness puts not only his life at risk, but also the future of his entire family. To save them all, he must find a woman who can meet his every desire with a heat all her own...

Just when Ricco has given up hope, he meets her - a mysterious woman whose shadow connects with his. She's someone looking for a safe haven from the danger that has stalked her over the last several months. In Ricco's embrace, she finds one. But the darkness in which they so often find sanctuary can also consume them...


She watched him come toward her, his muscles rippling beneath his tight tee.  The material stretched over his chest so she could see the defined muscles beneath as he approached her.  He looked utterly confident.  The scrapes on his arms and face didn't detract from his good looks at all.  If anything, he looked even tougher.
"You look perfect, Mariko," he greeting.  "Absolutely beautiful."  (Page 103)

While the description of Ricco is yummy, that's not what makes me swoon here.  She had just dressed to meet him feeling ugly and less in every way.  She was raised this way, having always been told that everything about her is ugly and wrong.  Ricco doesn't see it that way.  He makes her feel beautiful and feminine.  I love him for that. 

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