Swoon Thursday #20 - The First Spell by Rachel Carrington

The fabulous girls over at YA Bound created this super HOT meme. Here's how it works.

From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.

Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on your blog! I want to know & so do the chicks at YABound!

This weeks teaser is from a short story I enjoyed. It is the prequel to the Hot Magic series which involves Wizards, Witches and Magic!!

The First Spell
By Rachel Carrington

“Don’t do what you’re thinking of doing.”

“You can read my mind now?”

“Tell me you don’t intend to kiss me then.”

“A kiss is such a mild term, and it is not my only intention.” He cupped the back of her neck, the skin so soft beneath his fingertips it might as well have been lamb’s wool.

He heard the quick catch of her breath, saw her pupils dilate, and knew she wasn’t going to stop him. He promised himself the kiss would be no more than a simple brushing of his lips against hers to satisfy the need burning within him. But that was before he tasted her, felt the vibrations against his lips when she moaned.

Another step brought their bodies together, and his other hand slipped up to her neck as well. His thumbs brushing her jawline, Jensen caressed her lips, and Charlemaine’s hands circled his wrists, not to push away but to hold on.
