Neat Tricks Dept. 'He kissed Bridget lightly on the cheek and there was an awkward moment as he pulled back while she leaned forward to kiss the other.' (John Darnton, The Darwin Conspiracy, 2005) [PB]

Dept of Lingering Heat. 'It was hotter than Hamish thought it could get anywhere beyond a volcanic caldera.' (Kurt R.A. Giambastini, Unraveling Time, 2006) [PM]

Massage Dept. 'Elizabeth crossed her legs and stroked Ariel's spine with a frown.' (David Weber, Field of Dishonor, 1994) [AC]
