Tempt Me Thursday (12)

Tempt Me Thursday was created here at The Reader's Antidote, and it's basically Teaser Tuesday on sexy YA steroids and then a synopsis of my current read.

The passage is from Legacy of the Clockwork Key, which is actually also my current read! I'm liking this book a lot more than I thought I would.

"I don't want to see you hurt." His words were soft, like a prayer.
"Then help me fly."
He took my face in his hands and kissed me.
His warm lips caressed mine as I felt myself tumble and fall, then soar. All the doubt and uncertainty fled, leaving only my awareness of him.
He let go, gazing into my eyes with such intensity, I nearly couldn't breathe.
