My TMBA this week is from......... Lover Mine by: J.R Ward.
Rising up off his knees, John approached Xhex with the swagger of a male in his full prime--who'd just been through the gauntlet and rocked it just fine, thank you very much. In front of her, he knelt back down, dropped his head, and held the black box up for her to take or refuse at her will. Traditions said if she accepted it, she accepted him.
What takes your breath away?
