“You clearly needed that,” Thorn said after their lovemaking session, lying next to his lover. His heart began to slow, his body hot but satisfied. “You always seem so desperate, especially lately.”
Kenneth nodded, his face red, and he took a few moments to catch his breath before speaking. “It’s…it’s the magic, sort of,” he said, and Thorn’s worries resurfaced. “The desperation, I mean. I’ve told you before, but when you’re around, and my magic increases…it’s intoxicating. Like being drunk, of sorts.” He stroked a hand down Thorn’s arm. “I’m not used to it. And…” he swallowed. “It makes me lustful. That doesn’t always happen with lifemates, but it does with you. Because I already want you.”
Jordan’s Second Chance 4.2 by TC Collins
Jordan groaned and leaned forward, capturing Wynter’s lips in a hungry kiss.
Cyan: Chapter 14 by Nephylim
“But he’s alright now, isn’t he? He’s past that. He has friends now, and—” Terror gripped him, a creeping horror in the pit of his stomach. He was afraid to voice the question, but he had to know. “He-he hasn’t— Has he?”
Cyan’s mother gave him a look of such compassion it almost made him cry.
Lost Inside: Chapter 33 by Cia Nordwell
“I don’t want to go.” Yuri winced and lowered his voice. “I want to stay here.” Benny had tucked Yuri into his bed while he and Dav worked on finding Sheshtun. He was holding his head, and he still looked sick. Benny hated making him get up, but he couldn’t guarantee when he’d be back. Someone had to look after Yuri while he recovered.
“Don’t you want to see Cleara? The younglings?”
“They’re too loud.” Dark shadows inside Yuri’s eyes were made darker by the purple shadows under them. He’d been asked to endure so much. Benny tried to keep

To Touch the Sky: #4 by; M.A. Church
Hawk scanned the bar, ready to crawl out of his skin. It was packed and the band was rocking. His staff handled the crush of people smoothly and professionally. The usual predators, both male and female, were on the prowl looking for a hook-up. They’d even tried their luck with him a time or two tonight. Little did the humans know he was the biggest predator there. He snorted. Some predator he was. He was so tightly wound he’d probably faint if someone yelled ‘boo.’ His totem spirit was right; there was something in the air tonight.
“I’d so love to be there when she gets caught,” Anne said.
“So you come along with us. In the meantime, let’s continue going over the evidence.”
Rattletrap #8 by Tali Spencer
“Lay off it, Bill,” Taltos snapped.
“We all saw for ourselves how the thing looked at him. I can guess why he had to clean up, so he wouldn’t stink of the thing.”
“I stank enough all by myself,” Jedd said. He searched the group for friendly faces, or even neutral ones. The best he could do was a few people who looked unhappy with Straske’s behavior. “I’m trying to help. We talked. Their leader’s name is Ussim.”
After a brief argument with his mother, Levi was in Gia’s Honda and free from his prison and warden.
“You’re a life saver!” Levi exclaimed.
Mayra touched her forehead to the ground. Desolate, she watched from the corner of her eye as her basket full of parsnips was carried away by the river´s current. The sound of heavy boots had her focusing her gaze on the dirt again. She held her breathe. Please, please, have them walk on. Please. Please.
Don’t Look Back #8 by Julie Lynn Hayes
Marshall found himself transfixed by the sight before him—Lee’s perfect pucker. Generally it was Lee who feasted on Marshall’s hole, but when Lee was in the mood, he allowed Marshall the privilege of tasting him there.
“Come on, buttercup, I don’t have all night.”
Boys of Belsmeade: Chapter 11 by Kazy Reed
Kissing my way down his length, I murmured, “Mmm. So good. You taste so good.” My saliva slicked his cock and I pumped him hard.
“Jesus, Eliot. I’m gonna come. You better move.”
He pushed against my shoulder and I let out a growl so harsh that I frightened myself.
A Change of Scenery: Part 6 by Johayan
Sitting on the futon and talking, Pahana and Symon started on the ends
of the futon but had slowly been moving closer to each other. Symon
didn’t plan on anything happening but he told himself that he’d not turn
anything down. As the afternoon turned into evening, they ordered pizza
and kept talking. When the pizza arrived, the conversation moved from
the futon to the dining room table.
Between bites, Pahana looked up at at Symon and asked blunty, “Just how
old are you?”
Symon looked up and smiled, “Old enough to be legal.”
Noah’s New Plan: Chapter 34 by Rob Colton
Washed Right Out: Chapter Two by Sarah Hayes
Riley had had an absolutely miserable day. It had started with waking up late and nearly missing the bus, rolled into a long morning of nothing but complaints and mix-ups at his office, punctuated by a lunch break that turned into an emergency meeting, topped off by a hot lengthy commute back home, made longer by multiple road accidents en route.
He was ready to crawl out of his slacks and work shirt and spend the evening with a beer, Chinese take-out, and several episodes of ‘Game of Thrones’ with the boyfriend, Jonathan. Riley Paolini, he thought, you deserve it.
