"Instead of arguing, I twisted in his embrace and placed my lips on his, kissing him softly. His lashes lowered, shielding his eyes. He returned the kiss and it was sweet and tender and so perfect that there was a good chance I'd start bawling like a baby. But then the kisses, well, they changed. They deepened as I rolled onto my back and he followed, his weight a delicious feeling against my legs, and these kisses were anything but sweet. They scorched deep inside me, washing away the events of the last couple of hours like the river had taken away the unholy burn of the onyx. When he kissed like this, every muscle in his body coiling into a tight spring, he undid me. His hand smoothed the shirt down, baring a shoulder, and his mouth followed. Static built in the air and a tremble coursed through his body. In that moment, after everything that happened, I wanted the feel of him against me with no barriers, nothing getting in the way. Lifting up, I raised my arms and Daemon didn't hesitate. He took what was offered. With nothing there, his hands were everywhere, tracing the slender piece of obsidian, smoothing down the curve of my stomach, over my hips, and I was pretty sure there would be no other moment as perfect as this."


I loved this book so so much! This series is my absolute favorite and this is just one of the many moments that made me melt into a puddle of goo!

    I haven't started reading Opal yet. Waiting for the Holidays when I can relax and devour it slowly.

  10. *trying to hold in squeal* HOLY SHIZZNET, TERESA!!! That is just...WOW...I honestly have no words! I can just imagine what the rest of the book is like just by reading this. Just a few more days left until I get this in my hands, but on the bright side I did buy Elixir, so I have that to keep me company! LOL ;p

    Great, fantastic, FANTABULOUS pick!! I swooned and got teased all at the same time. YAY! *no sarcasm, promise.*
