My Swoon is from THE DARKEST PART by Trisha Wolfe. I love Holden Marks and I definitely losing my control right along with Sam in these two steamy scenes. I'm going to give you two swoons with Holden and Sam, but believe me there's plenty more steamy hot scenes with these two! In this first swoon I'm going have to just cut it off, because these two are hot,hot, HOT. The Darkest Part is on sale for .99 cents right now!



                                                                            Sam and Holden's swoon

With one last, long kiss, I inhale her, then grip her shoulders and turn her chest to the wall. I press up against her and grab her wrists. Sliding them above her head and securing them there, I drop my mouth to her neck.
      Need pours through me, and I sink my teeth into her skin, eliciting a moan from her. Then I'm pushing her hands harder against the wall as my body pins hers, my mouth devouring her skin. Her wet hair touches my heated skin, the mix of cool and hot spiking my blood with hunger.
      Shackling her wrists together with one hand, I reach down with my other to spread her legs......

       And I'm unable to hold back. Trapping her wrist, I roll her onto her back and move between her legs, then grabbing her other wrist, I pin her to the bed. My lips catch hers, working her mouth into a desperate kiss. Someone's going to have to drag me from this room. We might never actually make it back on the road--I'll never be able to get enough of her.
       Her hips arch into me, and I groan against her mouth, wishing like hell I'd never put on my stupid jeans.
       Releasing her wrist, I run my hand along her arm, feeling her shiver under my touch. I move higher and tunnel my fingers into her hair, resting my thumb along her jaw, and tilt her head up to look into her yellow-green eyes that I swear, one day, I'll find a color to match. Just so I can paint her likeness to perfection.
      "I've never stopped. And I'll never stop, Sam." I swallow hard. "I'll love you so hard it will make your head spin."
       Her breath catches. "I love you, Holden Marks." She feathers her fingers through my hair, pulling me closer. "Now start making good on that promise."
        I kiss her. I kiss her hard. Damn straight  I'm making good on it.
