Here’s this week’s question:
If you could choose one supernatural being/creature to really exist, what would it be and why?
ex. fae { submitted by @SeeingNight }
My favorite supernatural beings/creatures include angels, vampires and werewolves. However, if only one of those could exist, then I would have to go with the angels.
Angels hold a special magic for me which the others don't possess.

Swoon Thursday #21 Opal

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!

Okay, I'm  a little bit slow, but I have finally managed to cast away my fears of the dreaded cliffhanger  and the long wait for Origin, and I am currently deeply immersed in Opal.
Like the others in the Lux series, this is an awesome book. But I don't have to tell many of you that because you already know.

There are so many swoon worthy moments in this book that it was difficult for me to choose. But choose, I did.
"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."
Did Daemon undo you? Is this the perfect moment?

This weeks Tease comes from Book #2 of the series  I've currently been reading - Renegade Angels by Sylvia Day.

As I have mentioned in my posts featuring

Book #0.5: A Dark Kiss of Rapture
Book #1: A Touch of Crimson
Book #1.5: A Caress of Wings
this is a series which is designed for a more mature audience due to the very adult content contained between the pages.
So what is the book?

A Hunger So Wild

Elijah Reynolds is the most dominant of lycans, a rare Alpha whose skill on the hunt is surpassed only by his primal sexuality. When the lycans revolt due to the iron fist of angelic rule, he steps into command, becoming both enemy and coveted ally in the conflict between vampires and angels.

Vashti is the second most powerful vampire in the world, a lethal beauty with a path of devastation in her wake. Tasked with proposing an alliance between vampires and the lycans who killed her mate, Vash approaches Elijah, whose need to avenge a friend demands Vash's death even as his passion demands her surrender.

Soon, their enmity erodes beneath an all-consuming desire. Elijah has never encountered a woman whose warrior spirit and fierce sexual appetite rivals his own, while Vash is faced with the one man strong enough to be her equal. But as war looms, each must decide where their loyalty lies--with their own kind or with the enemy lover they can no longer live without.

And the Tease:

"You are far more valuable and desirable to me now than you were then." His forehead dropped lightly to hers. "Because now your mine. Totally and completely. As I am yours. With all my faults and traits that annoy you."

Okay, I know I'm bad, but I can't stop at one. Here's another to tease you:

His lips moved against hers. "Because you showed me what love truly is just by giving yours so selflessly. I wasn't made for love. It wasn't weaved into the fabric of my being. I didn't know what it was, what I was looking for, what I needed. I had no point of reference, no examples, nothing. Until you."

Just a note, Book #3, A Taste of Seduction, is due for release in February 2013. I can't wait to see where Sylvia Day takes this series next.
