  Right now I am still SWOONING over HALF-BLOOD by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

“You should tel me to stop.”
I didn’t say a word.
Aiden made a deep sound in his throat. His hand slid up my back, leaving a trail of fire in its wake, and his lips
moved across my cheek, stopping to hover above mine. I forgot how to breathe, and most importantly, how to
think.
He moved, ever so slightly, and his lips brushed across mine once, and then twice. It was such a soft, beautiful
kiss, but when the kiss deepened, it wasn’t a shy one. This was one of dangerously pent-up need, a desire
that’d been denied far too long. The kiss felt fierce, demanding, and soul burning.
Aiden pul ed me to him, pressing me right up against his body. And when he kissed me again, it left both of us
breathless. Our hands tangled with each other’s bodies as we made it back to his bedroom. My hands found
their way under his shirt and over the taut skin of his sides. We separated long enough for me to get the shirt
off, and gods, each hard ripple was as breathtaking as I’d imagined.
Easing me down on his bed, his hands glided from my face to my arms. Next his hand traveled over my
stomach, then my hip, and under the hem of my dress. Somehow, the top of my dress ended up at my waist,
and his mouth moved over my body. I melted into him, his kisses, and his touch. My fingers dug into the tight
skin of his arms, and my insides were in tight coils. Every place our bodies touched, sparks flew.
Aiden pul ed his lips away from mine, and I made a sound of protest, but then his mouth trailed across my
throat and to the base of my neck. My skin burned and my thoughts were on fire. His name was barely a
whisper, but I felt his lips curve against my skin.
His gaze and fingers fol owed some unseen path as he rol ed me on top. “You’re so beautiful. So brave, so ful
of life.” He guided my head down and dropped a sweet kiss against the scar on my neck. “You have no idea,
do you?
You have so much life in you, so much.”
I tipped my head and he kissed the tip of my nose.
“Real y?”
“Yes.” He brushed my hair back from my face. “Since the night I saw you in Georgia, you’ve been under my
skin. You got inside me, became a part of me. I can’t shake it. It’s wrong.” He shifted us, rol ing me across the
bed until he leaned above me. “Agapi mou, I can’t…” He brought his lips down to mine once more.
There were no more words. Our kisses hardened, his lips and hands took on a purpose that could only mean
one thing. I’d never gone this far with a guy before, but I knew I wanted to be with him. There was no doubt,
only certainty.
Everything in my world hinged on this moment.
Aiden lifted his head, staring down at me with that question in his eyes. “Do you trust me?”
I ran my fingers over his cheek, then his parted lips.
“Yes.”
He made a deep sound in his throat and caught my hand.
Bringing it to his lips, he pressed a kiss against each fingertip, then my palm and then my lips. -from a chapter in Half-Blood

-A very long swoon! :)))

Waiting on Wednesday (8)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating


Ceaseless (Existence Trilogy #3)

by



He defied Heaven to keep her, he defeated evil to save her, but if her soul wants another... will he be able to let her go?

Summary:
Can he make her fall in love with him… again?


When Pagan Moore proved worthy of Death’s devotion, he was given the gift of getting to keep her.


But Dank was never promised that Pagan would keep him.


When a soul is created, so is its mate. In every lifetime those souls find each other. They complete the other’s destiny. It’s time for Pagan’s soul to choose if she truly wants an eternity at Death’s side or if she wants the mate created just for her.


Dank didn’t think he had to worry about her choice. He knew where her heart belonged. Until he realized that every kiss, every touch, every moment of their time together would be washed from her memories. He would have to win her heart all over again and prove to her soul that he was where she belonged.


If only her soul’s mate wasn’t right there standing in his way.

Touched

Expected publication: August 14th 2012

 Nick Cross always listens to the voice in his head. Because if he doesn't? Things can go really, really wrong. Like the day he decided to go off script and saved a girl from being run over . . . and let another one drown. Trying to change the future doesn't work.

But this summer at the Jersey Shore, something's about to happen that Nick never could have predicted. He meets a girl named Taryn and finds out about the Book of Touch. Now the path that he thought he was on begins to shift . . . and there's no way to stop things from happening. Or is there?

In a life where there are no surprises, nothing has prepared Nick for what he's about to discover--or the choice he will be forced to make. . . .

 Right now I am still SWOONING over ETERNAL STARLING by Angela Corbett.


The only thing that could pull my eyes away from the stunning gift was the feel of Alex’s hand on my cheek, lifting my head. He held my
gaze while he slowly ran his fingers through my hair. I stared at him in amazement. He took my hands and pulled me up, close enough to
embrace me. His eyes burned as he leaned in until I could feel his mouth melt into mine and merge with my lips like we’d each found our
missing puzzle piece. My soulmark flamed to life as our lips parted and the kiss became more urgent. I breathed in his cedar scent, the smell
overtaking me. I ran my fingers over his hard chest while Alex’s hands explored my back. I lost track of time until Alex stepped back, his
hands on my hips. He didn’t move his eyes from mine. “I can’t spend any more time without you, and I’ll be damned if you choose to be with Stone just because he can touch you.” -From a chapter in Eternal Starling

The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten)

by


Expected publication: October 23rd 2012 

Don't look at Them. Never let Them know you can see Them.

That is Ethan Chase's unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs—including his reputation—begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he's dare to fall for.

Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister's world—the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myths and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten.

My name is Ethan Chase. And I may not live to see my eighteenth birthday.
