In PIeces #37 (9.3) by Julie Lynn Hayes
Ryan wasted no time in scrambling onto his bed, into Ben’s waiting arms. He nuzzled Ben’s neck, inhaling him. Ben wound his arms about him, pressing their bodies close together. He tangled his fingers in Ryan’s hair, clutching at him as if he’d never let him go.
Ryan was no virgin. He’d had a few lovers over the past ten years, but none who felt nearly as good as Ben did at this very moment. No wonder his relationships had never lasted. Somewhere in his heart he’d always known Ben was the one, and everyone else was but a pale imitation of him.
Ben was warmth,
Adrift: Chapter 24 by J. Alan Veerkamp
Arad’s eyes fluttered awake. Had minutes or hours passed? Roku still held him in his iron embrace. Two rows of teeth continued to gently rest around Arad’s drool soaked shoulder. Rucked up from earlier, his shirt was chilled and clammy from wicking moisture off the DemiShou’s fur, meant it couldn’t have been too long.

“You okay?” Captain asked. He lead the way, while I lagged a step behind instead of walking beside him.

Here Kitty Kitty: Chapter 17.3, by Carol Pedroso
Kitryn pulled out of the kiss with Simon when he heard running footsteps. A young man skidded around the corner, saw them, and made straight toward them.
“You are needed immediately. The lady with you has been hurt.”
Kitryn set out at a flat run, but Simon still overtook him within seconds. Damn his mate was really getting used to his new powers.
They arrived at their rooms and saw people crowded around one of the couches in the living area.
“What’s going on?” he demanded and pushed his way through to see for himself.
