Samson’s Lovely Mortal: Scanguards Vampires, by Tina Folsom

mortalNEW YORK TIMES & USA TODAY Bestselling Author Tina Folsom presents: Samson’s Lovely Mortal (Scanguards Vampires #1)

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.

“I’m addicted to Tina Folsom’s books! The Scanguards series is one of the hottest things to happen to vampire romance. If you love scorching, fast-paced reads, don’t miss this thrilling series!” — Lara Adrian, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Midnight Breed series

“… really enjoyed Folsom’s writing style. It was bubbly and quick paced.” – “… a well written, wonderfully saucy piece of prose …” –Taliesin meets the Vampire (UK Blog)

“… excellent job of developing her main characters for this story, the good, the bad, the happy and the sad.” – “… enjoyed every emotional, erotic, and very sexy second …” –A Hungry Vampire

“My first thought when I finished this book was, Wow! That was awesome! My next thought was, Damn, there better be another book …” –Indie Paranormal Book Reviews –

This is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Folsom and I had no idea whether I would like it or not when I purchased it. The idea of a vampire alpha male with erectile dysfunction intrigued me, particularly in an erotic novel. The book was not what I expected. It was interesting. I enjoyed the world Ms. Folsom created very much. Her characters had a depth to them that was surprising for a light read. Samson and Delilah (corny choice of names but I got used to it) were a very well matched pair. They had good chemistry and were well developed, although they could have been developed more thoroughly. The secondary characters were just as interesting, particularly Amaury who I never thought I would like but came out sympathetic in the end.

That was a big surprise, since I am usually not sympathetic to these type of characters at all, no matter what their excuses are. She managed to write a womanizing, unfeeling male who you end up feeling sorry for and wanting to find a happy ending. Good thing her next book is his story. Back to this story, and without giving the story away any more than the blurb already does, the relationship between the two main characters is what drives the tale. The plot is very simple and predictable, but that is usually the case with erotic novels. It is different from the usual vampire story, funny at parts, and a satisfying read overall. It kept my interest, and I will read the next book in the series to see where it goes. If you have a free afternoon and nothing else to read, give it a try. It’s not the next Black Dagger Brotherhood, but it is a pretty solid erotic light read.
