Memorable Kiss #1 - Ethan & Merit, The Chicagoland Vampires
A warning he ignored.
That was when he moved - when he reached up, cupped my face in his hands, and pressed his lips to mine. He stayed there, his mouth on mine, for a long time, before he finally drew away. But he kept his hands on my cheeks and kept his shining eyes on my face.
"You undo me, Merit. Wholly and completely. You don't take me at my word. You challenge me at every opportunity. And that means when I'm with you, I am less than the head of this House... and I am more than the head of this House. I am a man." He stroked my cheeks with his thumbs. "In my very, very long life, I need you more than I have ever needed anything."
This time, I didn't wait for him to move. I kissed him. I slid my hands around his waist as he slid his hands around my neck, tangled his fingers in my hair and pulled me closer. He kissed me hungrily, greedily, as if he'd been starved for me.
My body ignited, every cell on fire, and I kissed him back as if I couldn't get close enough. I nipped at his lips and tangled my tongue with his, magic beginning to spill through the room as passion flared between us" - page 119
