Goodreads Summary:

Guardian trainee Violet Fairdale is just weeks away from one of the most important occasions of her life: graduation. After messing up big time by bringing a human into the fae realm, Vi needs to step up her game and forget about Nate if she hopes to graduate as the top guardian of her year. Everything would be fine if she wasn’t forced to partner with Ryn, her ex-friend, ex-enemy, current ‘sort of friend’. They might be trying to patch up their relationship, but does she really want to spend a week undercover with him for their final assignment? On top of that, the possibly insane Unseelie Prince is still on the loose, free to ‘collect’ as many specially talented faeries as he can find—and Vi is still at the top of his list. Add in faerie queens, enchanted storms, complicated not-just-friends feelings, and a murder within the Guild itself, and graduation is about to become the least of Vi’s problems.

What Made Me Swoon: 

Swoon #1:

"His lips graze mine, which startles me so much I almost pull away.  But I don't.  I grip his fingers tighter and press my body closer because-yes oh yes oh yes-I want this so badly.  Our lips touch again, with more pressure this time.  He pulls his fingers free from mine and slides his hand all the way up my arm.  I imagine I can feel sparks jumping across my skin.  Through my closed eyelids, I see flashes of light  and the realization hits me:  The sparks he's trailing up my skin are real.  His fingers dig  into my wet hair and pull my face closer to his.  He twists me around, pressing me against the wall.  I feel his body along every inch of mine; no space exists between us.  His lips brush along my jaw, teasing me with kisses that feel cool against my burning hot skin.  He trails a finger-more sparks-down my neck and over the swell of my chest, ending when he reaches the edge of my top.  I think a gasp escapes my throat, but I'm not sure since all I can hear is the pounding of blood in my ears.  (eARC, 195)

Swoon #2:

"You think I'm going to hurt you?  You think I''m going to get bored and run off with some 

Undergrounder the first chance I get?  You obviously have no idea how amazing you are.

You, Violet Fairdale, are incredible, and I want you.  Every part of you.  I want your 

stubbornness and your sarcasm and your competitive spirit.  I want you challenging me 

and fighting beside me.  I want to hold you and kiss you and so much more because  

there's no one else in the world who knows me like you do.  You have always been the one 

for me, even when we couldn't stand each other.  You're beautiful and hot and sexy all at 

once, and you're more intelligent than any girl I've met.  I love the fact that I've known 

you all my life.  It just feels right when you're beside me.  It feels like I've been lost in the 

desert for years, and ...I've finally come home."  (eARC, 236)

What did you Swoon over this week?


  1. *swoon*
    Thanks so much for featuring The Faerie Prince!

    1. The Faerie Prince is a new favorite! I'm so excited that I got to feature it, and help get the word out, so others can enjoy it too!

  2. Ooo, lovely cover! First thing I thought of :D And TWO swoons! Lindy, you spoil us. I love the second swoon. I hope you enjoyed this book! It certainly sounds good :)

    Check out my WoW post!

    1. I LOVED this book! Yes, my heart did the whole flutter when I read the second Swoon! I'm a romantic at heart, and I think those are the sweetest words a guy could every tell a girl :) Thanks for visiting my Swoon :)

  3. I one-clicked on The Faerie Guardian but now I have to one-click for this one! I did not have time to read the first one yet. I need to get to these ASAP!!! They look so good!

    Great swoon!

    This week I swooned for HUNTER from Obsession by Jennifer L Armentrout :)

    OMG!!! Talk about Alpha Male!!! Eeeeep!!!

    I had a few *fan self* moments ... He sure did start a panty-dropping crisis across the universe!

    “Are you donne acting like a psychotic, cracked-out Muppet baby?" he asked, and I could tell by the way his fingers spasmed around my wrists, he really wanted to shake me.
    "Or do you need a couple more moments to return to sanity? I have all day. And you actually feel kind of good under me, so take your time.”

    ”I can promise you that sex with me won’t be about long, soft pets, or whispered words. I like it rough and raw, but your pleasure will always come first. Every single time.”

    “Life’s rarely fair, sweetheart.” He slid his hands over my thighs as his lips brushed the curve of my jaw once more. “We’ve always been seen as a weapon. That’s what we are.”
    “No.” Heat unfurled inside me, spreading sizzling shivers. “You’re more than a weapon, Hunter. So much more.”
    “With you?” His voice was thick. “I am more, but not with anyone else.”

    Rawrrrrrr!!!! He's hot! Lindy, Pick him up!!!


    1. Sold!!!! LOL I could use some Hunter in my life! LOL I LOVE JLA/J. Lynn!!! Have you read the Lux Series!!! It's really good :) Now time for a tough question, Cam or Hunter?

    2. Ohhhhh chicka this question is easy for me : CAM !!!!!!!!!

      I like my sexy alpha males dirty talkers, but when I man can make me fall in love with him with just one word he takes first place in my books.

      Once the word COOKIE left his delicious mouth (Shushhhh!!! It's stays between me and you, eh? Our husbands don't need to know about him ... LOL!!!)

      I fell head over heels for him. I can't eat a cookie without thinking about him. OMG! Just the way he was with Avery ... it warms my heart all over again just thinking about it. He's the real deal!

      <3 <3 <3

      Now, I think i'll go re-read Wait For You ;P

    3. Your secrets safe with me! LOL I can't wait for Cam's series to continue! Thanks for stopping by friend! Miss you :)
