I must confess that when I started reading this book I didn't think I'd like it as much as I did. Firstly I didn't like the main character, Samson Woodford, what a man-whore! Stinking rich who always got what he wants and his batchelor mates didn't come across as any better. However, the female main character, Delilah Sheridan kept me reading; she was intelligent, funny and someone I could engage with.
Luckily, the male characters revealed more complex depths as the story progressed and although I worked out the plot's "who dunnit" easily, the developing relationship between Samson & Delilah satisfied my contemporary romantic side.
This is book 1 in Tina Folsom's Scanguards Vampires series & I will be reading more. ( )

Apparently, I have a new trigger. Slut shaming. Our heroine had this thought about a stripper hired for the hero's birthday party.

She glanced at the woman in the nurse's uniform. Disgusting! Her boobs looked fake, and so did just about everything else about her. She looked cheap, and Delilah was sure the woman wasn't just a stripper, but probably also a hooker. She could just about imagine what the tramp was hired to do.

She knows nothing about this woman or her circumstances. Since Delilah thinks the woman is a hooker, she is summarily dismissed as a tramp and I found that disgusting. I can't root for a heroine that thinks this way about other women. DNF'd at 7%.

Samson's Lovely Mortal
4 Stars

Synopsis:
Samson Woodford has two problems. First, he a vampire and second, he’s impotent. While there is nothing he can do for the first, he is determined to solve the second by visiting a psychiatrist. Nothing seems to work until the moment that Delilah Sheridan arrives on his doorstep wet, bedraggled and scared out of her wits because someone is following her. After sharing a night of passion, Samson finds it difficult to let his new found treasure go, especially since someone is obviously interested in killing her.

Review:
An engaging mix of romance, paranormal and suspense.

Yes, the main characters’ names are Samson and Delilah (corny, right?) but their personalities and back stories are, nevertheless, exceedingly well developed and interesting - I really liked the fact that the vampires have very human emotions and predicaments. Samson is completely charming and witty, and the way he copes with his performance problems contributes significantly to the humor in the story. Delilah is just as likeable with her own personal demons. She definitely knows what she wants and never allows herself to be dominated.

Folsom’s vampire world is not unique; it actually calls to mind Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breeds only it lacks the intricate detail of that series. The plot is not the most exciting but it is well paced and intelligent. It also involves compelling themes of greed, betrayal and vengeance. I did, however, have a couple of issues with it. First, the nature of the mystery and the identity of the villain are obvious from the outset, and second, the story would have been just as enjoyable without making the hero a vampire - human corporate types can be just as dangerous. Thus, the paranormal elements feel a bit contrived.

On a final note, while the opening line is seriously explicit, I did not find the sex scenes too excessive or overly graphic (despite the warning at the beginning of the book). It is nothing compared to the ACRO series.

All in all, I went in with few expectations and was pleasantly surprised. This book is a light and entertaining read and I will definitely read the next. ( )

Samson and Delilah...the perfect match. Delilah is an internal auditor for big corporations and is currently checking into Scanguards records for discrepancies. But someone doesn't want her snooping into their business. That's how she meets Samson. Samson is a vampire with a problem. A big problem. He can't get it up. Literally. That is until Delilah falls into his arms one rainy night, and his whole life turns around for the better. Now he must show the little human that he can be just as warm and caring as any human man. He must first keep her alive and safe, then he must break the news to her that could really drive her away. ( )
