My Swoon Thursday is form Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel. I just love the love story she portrays between the two characters. One is living, the other dead, well undead. But it is so sweet:
Bram met me halfway. He Scooped me up with one arm and pulled my head towards his. I didn't fight it in the least. He kissed me harshly, and I returned it, Leaping up on my toes, seeking out his chapped, broken lips with my own, inexpertly, needfully. And then he just held me as I cried, soaking his dirty T-shirt with my tears, his cheek on my head.
"I thought you were gone," I managed to get out. "I thought you were really gone..."
"I thought I was, too," he said, laughing weakly. "But I'd never leave you, if I had the choice. I was going to get back to you, or grind to dust trying."
