Book Review: Samson's Lovely Mortal by Tina Folsom

Scanguards Vampires
by Tina Folsom

Vampire bachelor Samson can't get it up anymore. Not even his shrink can help him. That changes when the lovely mortal auditor Delilah tumbles into his arms after a seemingly random attack. Suddenly there's nothing wrong with his hydraulics - that is, as long as Delilah is the woman in his arms. 
His scruples about taking Delilah to bed vanish when his shrink suggests it's the only way to cure his problem. Thinking all he needs is one night with her; Samson indulges in a night of pleasure and passion.
However, another attack on Delilah and a dead body later, and Samson has his hands full: not only with trying to hide the fact he's a vampire, but also with finding out what secrets Delilah harbors for somebody to want her harm.

Samson Woodford owns a successful security & bodyguard business called Scaguards and because of his success & wealth (not to mention his dark & sexy good looks) he is one of the most sought after bachelors in the vampire world. After an unpleasant break-up he is left with some male problems, ya’know, down there. You’re going to make me say it? Okay, he’s left impotent. Poor dear.
He even starts seeing a shrink but to no avail. Until his friends decide to throw him a very much un-anticipated birthday party complete with stripper. Needless to say, with his current problem, Samson is not looking forward to it. That is until someone comes crashing through his front door that night and things start looking up. Literally.
Delilah Sheridan is in California on a business trip auditing a company she was contracted for and looking into some financial discrepancies. It’s not a very exciting job but hey, someone’s gotta do it! And she is damn good at it too. On her way home one night she is attacked by a stranger but manages to escape. She starts pounding on the first door she gets to, and isn’t it just her luck. The guy mistakes her for a stripper!

I won this book, and the next two in the series, from Tina’s guest post over at the wonderful Bitten by Paranormal Romance. Thank you ladies!
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I started on Samson's Lovely Mortal but boy, what an opener! That first line grabs you and holds on through out the entire book!
Samson's Lovely Mortal is a wonderfully told story with a light & quirky dialogue and well developed characters & relationships. It really reads as a paranormal romance but with mind blowing sex scenes. For reals. The plot is simple but easily holds your attention and flows nicely. Both Samson and Delilah each have their own issues they need to overcome before they can really have a solid relationship and the book covers those and their pasts nicely without getting dull. There is also a host of secondary characters that are just as likeable as the main characters and you’ll be searching for more info on them and upcoming books after finishing this read. Overall a very intimate, enticing and humorous read that doesn’t lack on suspense with a whodunit and is filled to the brim with heart stopping romance and sexual encounters. I definitely recommend!

  1. Great review. I hope you enjoy them all. I sometimes fell like a Tina stalker, I guess you can say I am. Then again after you read one of her books how can you resist. Wait until you get to her Venice Vampire OMG, so not going there LOL..

  2. I'm reading Gabriel's Mate right now, just started it. But I will have to read Venice Vampire next, it looks delish and I love the warning. But is it only available on the Kindle? I can't find it anywhere else and I only have a Sony. =(

  3. Crystal, Venice Vampyr is also available at Smashwords and - there you should be able to download a copy that works on your Sony reader.

    I don't mind being stalked by you. You do it so nicely :)

  4. oops - Crystal, Venice Vampyr is not on yet - but it will be soon.
