Pleasure Principle by Kimberly Kaye Terry

She is beautiful to Sam and everyone around her, her beauty radiates from the inside out making her glow. Now it's Sam's mission to show her that there's so much more to her than her looks. Will she let him in? Or will she sabotage this wonderful relationship like she does all the rest?
Wicked Delights is an anthology of wicked proportions! Each story is a tender love story swaddled in deep erotic heat. I tried to print this book out but the stories were so hot it short circuited my poor printer!!
This group of stories starts off with Kate Hill's weretiger story Tamed By The Tiger. I admire Sanjay's determination to save his son's life even though he clearly knows there was a puzzle piece missing in the story that his son was telling him. If it was as simple as his son claims, the Wakened Veils would not have marked him for death. Sanjay has a smoldering intensity about him, which comes out when he confronts Raine. Raine is dedicated to her job of bringing wrong doing men to justice and protecting the women that need her help. The heat between these two flows like a rolling heat wave. Raine is a Succubus who has not fed in a long time, as such, I expected her to jump Sanjay's bones but instead something far more intense happens. Their relationship gets emotional; emotional entanglement is a thing Raine has long avoided because of her past dealings with men. But when she realizes that her feelings for Sanjay are not going away and neither is he, the ball really gets rolling. Passionate love, stunningly hot sex, and secrets that MUST be told...Tamed By The Tiger is a great start to this hot anthology!
Next in line is Adrienne Kama's Forsaken-Immortal Surrender. I totally enjoyed reading about Ambrosia. I can tell right off that she is new to her job, but well skilled and determined to do a good job despite being green. Ambrosia's assignment is to act the girlfriend to the lead singer of the band Forsaken. This pairs her up with Umberto a vampire over 300 years old. Little does she know, she is no match for him, and Umberto proves that to her in a blinding moment of startling intensity. Darkly sensuous and smolderingly erotic; if I were in Ambrosia's position I would have handed in my badge immediately. Theirs is a relationship full of complications: she's a vampire hunter attracted to the very vampire she needs to kill, he's a vampire attracted to the woman that is part of a group sent to kill him. This story rocks! I really can't say more about it without giving spoilers. What I can say is that Umberto and Ambrosia's joining, is just the TIP of the iceberg in the intensity of this story. Towards the end of this book, I was rocking back and forth with my fist in my mouth, things happened that I did not expect to happen. Talk about secrets! Can't go wrong with Forsaken-Immortal Surrender. I surrender! I surrender!
Unparalleled by Lisa G. Riley is an enjoyable read. Introducing me to Enrique and Edris at early ages. I loved them from the start. Enrique proved himself to be an alpha male while young and only more so when he became an adult. Edris loses her precociousness when she gets older making her rather rigid and not as fun loving as when she was in her youth. Enrique gifted with "third-eye" sight sees things he does not understand, right down to dreaming and "seeing" Edris but never knowing her name. As the two grow older in their parallel universes the dreams go from childhood playfulness and experiences to adult passionate lovemaking. I want a dream man like that!! I wanted to know if the heat that Edris and Enrique experience in their dreams, transfers into real life. I wanted to know who killed Edris' mother...so many questions! Ms. Riley answered them all, even showing me a side of Edirs that was there, but hidden. I love Edris and found myself hoping that she would get to meet Enrique in real life because she needs that, she needs something that would bring something out of her that she's buried deep. This was a good story, and a great addition to the anthology.
Rounding out this great group of stories is Kimberly Kaye Terry's Pleasure Principle. Unlike the previous three stories neither of the main characters has any paranormal powers, but they are in no way lacking in anything. Arlinda is a woman who creates fantastic designs and owns her own boutique but in spite all of this, she has a lack of self-confidence that she keeps hidden deep within, only allowing her best friend Maya to see sometimes. When she meets the sexy Samuel she is ready to jump his bones, but doubts and insecurities surface making her unsure of herself. I can relate to Arlinda; we all experience insecurities and doubts. As Sam becomes more and more enamored of Arlinda he begins to chip away at her defenses. I read the story mumbling and fussing the whole time. I wanted to shake Arlinda and tell her to ease up just a little bit on emotionally fighting Sam or she would lose the best man she's ever come across. Sam is just hot and I must say the man has got the self-control of a saint! How he did the things, oh the things, he did to and with Arlinda I don't know. The erotic heat and intensity in this story is enough to rival that of an active volcano. At times I had to put the story down for a moment to compose myself and continue reading. Following the journey of Arlinda coming out of her shell, the journey of Sam's efforts to earn her trust and love made this an excellent end to one of the hottest and most enjoyable anthologies I've read in some time.
