I raise my heads, and Lorenzo's gaze travels from my eyes, to my mouth, and back again, asking for permission.
I like my lips, and he draws in a breath. One of his hands travels slowly across my waist, inching up the soft silk of my bodice to my chin. His other hand skims along my arm, and cups my jaw in his hands, the tips of his of his fingers buried in my hair. Tilting my face towards his, he leans down and trails a line of soft kisses from my forehead, to feathered-closed eyelids, to the tip of my nose, and finally to my mouth.
Our second kiss is gentle and passionate, tentative and hungry, all at once. My fingers thread through his curls and clasp around his head, tugging him to me.


Title: A Tale Of Two Centuries
Series: My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century #1
Author: Rachel Harris

Genre: YA Historical Fantasy
Rating: 5/5

A low growl is my only warning before Austin’s hands thrust into my hair. “I warned you about playing with fire.”
Breathlessly, I say, “And I told you I’m tired of being careful.”
He nods once…and then his mouth crashes onto mine.
Firm lips devour me, and I drown in the rush of feeling. In all my late-night dreams of what this moment would be like, I never expected it could be like this. My body collapses, and one of his arms locks around me, smashing my chest against his.
My first kiss is not the slow, sweet build-up I witnessed between Cat and Lorenzo. This is aggressive. This is passionate. This is Austin.
The shocking sting of teeth biting into my lower lip causes me to gasp, and Austin uses it to drive his tongue into my mouth. My knees buckle. If it weren’t for the splay of his hand on my lower back and the pressure of his fingers wrapped around the nape of my neck, I would sink to the sand.

Phew…Lorenzo & Austin in one post…that's a whole lot of swoonage ;)

So what's making you swoon this week?

    1. Lorenzo was super sweet, but I have to admit Austin is my fav...there's just something about his cocky attitude that I loved...and maybe his surfer body helped a bit too ;)
