Derek Prince doesn't believe they really exist, until he meets the stunningly sensual Xenia. She drives him wild with desire, but giving in to temptation means losing her position at Fathoms. Derek is incredibly turned on by the thought of being Xenia's first...but will he be willing to wait for her?
Immersed in Pleasure

Review: This was really different from the Spice Briefs I've read. Most of the time when I read these shorts, I wonder how you can pack so much sex in about 20-40 pages. This story didn't do that.

It is told as a story by Derek, and through him you see an unusual club in NYC and you meet Xenia one of Fathom's mermaids.

Tiffany's writing style reminded me of Anais Nin. I can't give an author a higher compliment. The sex was steamy, but not raunchy. I like that in erotica. There was a sensuality to the sex in this story. Plus there was a love connection between Xenia and Derek.

I like how the author gave the mermaids an air of mystery and how the club owner wasn't some evil bastard out to make a quick buck off of them. He was profiting from them, but he cared for them in his own way.

My only complaint is that Xenia felt too naive, or maybe childlike. Other than that, this story was perfect. I hope Tiffany has a full length novel in the works.

Rating: 5 flowers
