“Immersed in Pleasure” by Tiffany Reisz (erotic, Harlequin, March 2012, $2.99, 213kb): I read lots of erotic romance, and frankly, it isn’t often that I’m surprised by them. But a virgin, mermaid heroine? That certainly isn’t the norm. And, in her latest Harlequin Spice Brief “Immersed in Pleasure,” author Tiffany Reisz creates a watery world where these virgin mermaids tantalize and seduce.
Beneath an exclusive club resides a hidden world where a powerful businessman reigns over an underground fantasy world where women work as mermaids. The women are treated like queens. In return, they must remain virgins, have scales tattooed on their legs, swim in a large pool and flirt with the patrons. When they choose to lose their virginity, they lose their mermaid status.

“A Man of His Word” by Sarah M. Anderson (contemporary, Harlequin Desire, December 2011, $4.99, 192pp)
I started my romance reading career reading Harlequins and Silhouettes. As my tastes changed, I started reading full-length romances instead, buying categories only for my favorite authors (Carole Mortimer, Diana Palmer, Penny Jordan, Margaret Way, etc). These days, it isn’t often that I find myself sitting down with a Harlequin book. However, I couldn’t resist reading Sarah M. Anderson’s debut book, “A Man of His Word” when I had the chance. And boy, did this one make me remember how much I like categories, especially Harlequin Desires (although I can’t get used to the name/brand change).
