Product Description

NEW 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

More About the Author

Tina Folsom was born in Germany and has been living in English speaking countries for over 20 years, the last 11 of them in San Francisco, where she's married to an American.

Tina has always been a bit of a globe trotter: after living in Lausanne, Switzerland, she briefly worked on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean, then lived a year in Munich, before moving to London. There, she became an accountant. But after 8 years she decided to move overseas.

In New York she studied drama at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, then moved to Los Angeles a year later to pursue studies in screenwriting. This is also where she met her husband, who she followed to San Francisco three months after first meeting him.

In San Francisco, Tina worked as a tax accountant and even opened her own firm, then went into real estate, however, she missed writing. In 2008 she wrote her first romance and never looked back.

She's always loved vampires and decided that vampire and paranormal romance was her calling. She now has 15 novels in English and several in other languages (Spanish, German, and French) and continues to write, as well as have her existing novels translated.

Her favorite authors are: Lara Adrian, Kresley Cole, Larissa Ione, Alexandra Ivy, Kerrilyn Sparks, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and many other great romance writers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot stuff! 24 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book and didn't put it down from start to finish!! Samson has a problem, he can't get it up, no matter how hard he tries and no matter what the woman looks like but once human Delilah comes crashing into his life his problem quickly disappears and he wants, no he needs to just have sex with her once, but once with her isn't enough! Very steamy book and definitely worth every penny. Already i'm looking forward to the second in the Scanguards series, Amaury's Hellion!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow 8 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this for my kindle for free and loved it. Recommended for any PR or vampire fiction lovers. It has just the right amount of everything in it. The only thing I didnt like were the names of the two leading characters Samson and Delilah. Apart from that 5 * and i cant wait to read the next in the series.

it is a vampire hotty meets human hotty with distinct erotic overtones story. some of the lines are cheesy others quite funny. the author could make the characters more interesting...fill them out a little...they lacked depth. it wasn't bad at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars funny 25 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Ok, for the most part, I thought this was a lot of fun. The first chapter is LMFAO funny. Really, imagine a big bad PNR vampire lead trying to explain to his shrink he doesn't have an anger problem he has ED. Too funny! The rest of the book doesn't rise to quite the same level of humour, but it would be hard to establish much of a plot if it did. Despite that, it still had a ton of funny one-liners in it. The humour is the best part of the book, by far.

The sex is smoking' hot and there is a lot of it. The whole middle of the book is essentially one protracted sex scene. This sometimes obscures a good story, but amazingly there is a plot in there too, so no real complaints.

I generally enjoyed this book. The writing was fairly simplistic, but solid and perfectly functional. The four friends had a good rapport and Samson and Delilah (oh, yeah, that's really their names) have a great repartee. Delilah is a full-grown, sexually aware woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it. There is no wimpy pseudo-virgin here. Delilah is truly a strong female lead and I love that about her. And Samson breaks the PNR vampire mold, in that he is an emotional basket case. I loved it.

I only have two real complaints. But for me they are major ones. In a sense I almost imagine this book as the literary Valley-Girl equivalent of the stock phrase, "it's sooo AMAZING." You can almost hear that nasally, high-pitched airhead voice calling it out to her equally vacuous latte-lugging, silicone encrusted BFF. Because every single experience, thought, emotion, touch, feeling, orgasm, sight, smell, etc is described as being more meaningful, moving, important, etc than any one previously had by the characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough to make me want to read the next book 21 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would actually give it 3.5 stars. It was an enjoyable read with lots of sexy stuff and the story was quite fast paced too. I didn't give it 4 stars because I found some bits just too far fetched (even for a vampire/paranormal romance!) like the vending machine with bottled blood (I'll have a V8; no make that an O Positive!) and that humans can live forever as long as their blood bonded vampire partner remains alive - oh, okay, no point in becoming a vampire too, then. And I found Samson a tad too soppy with his emotions, right to the last chapter like when he tells her why they now need a big house; I guess I prefer my male vampires to be dark and broody, flawed but sexy. Samson comes across as a bit too 'metrosexual male' to me, but I guess being a rich, good looking vampire with a man servant in San Francisco certainly appeals to a certain segment of the market. But it's a sweet story (I found the bit where Samson arranges for Delilah to speak to her dad very touching) and I am going to ready the next book in this series.
