Right now I am still SWOONING over THE PLEDGE by Kimberly Derting
When his lips reached mine, my heart stopped beating, its cadence lost on our kiss.
I closed my eyes, telling myself to pull away from him, but I was incapable of
following through with that one simple action.
It was tentative at first, just the slightest encounter of our lips as they brushed
ever so lightly together. A feather’s touch . . .
lighter even. My thready pulse spoke its own recognizable language.
But then I moved—closer, though, not away as I’d warned myself I should—answering
his tender request with my own.
Telling him that I wanted more.
His fingers laced through my still damp hair then, hauling me against him until we
were chest to chest and mouth to mouth.
I reached for his shoulders, clinging to him as I parted my lips, unsure of my
actions, but needing to be closer. His tongue slipped inside my mouth, and my veins
were infused with liquid fire, making me shiver with both need and fear.
Never had I wanted something so badly in all my life.
Never had I been so frightened of my own emotions. - From a chapter in The Pledge
