"It was like he was kissing her, brushing his lips at her throat, at her wrists, into the crease at the inside of her arm. But I could hear the lush tearing of her skin as his teeth bit through, again and again, forcing venom into her system at as many points as possible. I saw his pale tongue sweep along the bleeding gashes, but beforet this could make me either sick or angry, I realized what he was doing. Where his tongue washed the venom over her skin, it sealed shut. Holding the poison and the blood inside her body."
To me this is amazingly romantic. Bella has wanted to be a vampire since Twilight and Edward has resisted all the while because he is afraid of she will lose her soul. His efforts to do this for Bella, even though he doesn't want to, show just how much he loves her. He's planned ahead (putting the venom directly into her heart) and then in that horrible moment when there is hardly time left, he keeps a cool head and gets as much venom into her as possible. This is beyond the "traditional" romance here -- kissing, etc. This is the act of someone who loves unconditionally. I think that it helps, too,that if he doesn't change her, he'll lose her forever, so he's doing everything he possibly can to make sure he she stays with him.
