Samson's Lovely Mortal (Scanguards Vampire Series 1)

Samson's Lovely Mortal By Tina Folsom

Back Cover Synopsis:

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.

This book is the first book that I have ever read that came with a warning.

What you are about to read is of a sexually graphic nature.
If uninhibited and explicit sex scenes offend you,
please return this book to the retailer from which you've purchased it.
This book may contain explicit sex scenes which breech some taboos and are not for the faint of heart.

Still here?
So you think you can handle this?
Just thought, I'd warn everybody.

Now with a beginning like that, who would turn away.  I had to see what this was all about and why the need for the warning so I turned the page and the warning did nothing to prepare me for what I was about to read. . . . . . . .

Samson has everything going for him in his undead life that he didn't have when he was alive.  Money, power, close and loyal friends.  The only problem is he can't get it up anymore and hasn't been able to for over 9 months.  He has tried everything including seeing a psychologist, against his better judgement.  After months of therapy and no results, Samson starts to think that all hope is lost until the night of his birthday when a unlikely visitor brings his whole body back to life.

Delilah is a forensic auditor and one of the best in the country.  If there is a problem with the company books, she will find it.  While on assignment in San Francisco, she finds herself on edge and not quite sure why.  While walking to her company condo one night, she is chased by a man that has every intention of doing her harm.  Unknown to her as she is running for her life, she runs right into the one thing that will change it forever.

When Samson opens his door, the last thing that he expected was to have a soaking wet mortal fall into his arms screaming for help.  Mistaking her for a stripper that his friends hire for his birthday, Samson tries to make a move on the frightened and completely shaken woman who has set his whole body on fire.  When the truth is revealed that she is no stripper, Samson is mortified.  To make amends to Delilah, he invites her out on the town.

Delilah can not believe that this absolutely beautiful man would be interested in her let alone real.  While on their date, that is nothing like a normal date, Delilah is attacked again by the same man.  To keep her safe Samson insists that she stay with him to keep her safe.  After one thing lead to another and a all night sex session, Samson is starting to wonder why this mortal has such an effect on him and his emotions.  He is so afraid to let anyone close to him because of what happened. . . . before. . . . .

Regardless of his cautious nature, he can not deny that Delilah has not only cured his erectile issues but also his broken heart.

    Instead of his hunger being sated after a night of sex with her, it had grown. He’d started hungering for her and for her alone. The thought of ever touching another woman suddenly disgusted him. All he wanted was Delilah. And Samson now knew why, even though he didn’t understand anything else. He was falling for her, falling for a mortal. 

Samson now has bigger issues that ED.  Who is this woman who has had such an effect on him? Who is after her and why?  How can he convince her to stay with him and tell her what he truly is?

This book was great.  I didn't put it down unless I had to.  It had everything that a girl could want from a hot and steamy paranormal romance and I promise the warning lives up to its challenge.  I can not wait until I get the second in the series.

Been Away For Awhile

I know that I have been away for awhile and for that I apologize.  Life has gotten in the way as it always does.  But I'm back and better than ever.  There are three reviews coming in the next couple of days so thank you for your patience.  It will be worth it with the new changes that are coming.
