Erotic Romance Review – Samson’s Lovely Mortal

Samson’s Lovely Mortal (Scanguards Vampires #1) by  Tina Folsom

Review by Cynthia F. (frazerc)

You don’t meet a lot of heroes with erectile dysfunction…  Samson should be a happy vampire: he’s got close friends, a skillion dollars, and a successful company. But he still seems to being striking out on the ‘life, love, and pursuit of happiness’ thing. And there’s his 237th birthday coming up and his buddies are going to throw him a ‘surprise party’ complete with a stripper who does ‘extras’.  Sigh.  So he really isn’t surprised when a strange woman bangs on his door and begs for help…

Delilah barely escapes a thug who then pursues her down the deserted, rain-slicked streets of San Francisco. Seeing a lighted window she pounds on the door which is jerked open by a very large and apparently not very happy homeowner.  But he pulls her inside and offers her a place by the fire as she jerks out her story.

So, the stripper was taking the ‘damsel in distress’ approach.  Unusual but very nice.  And the rain-soaked clothes make it clear that the mortal is very nicely put together.  One kiss proves that she’s just what the doctor ordered…

OK, sexually aggressive homeowner versus street thug – not a good choice even if he was the best kisser in the world.  One high heel equipped stomp and slap later they’re glaring at each other.  Delilah thinks the night can’t get any worse and then he makes it clear he thinks she’s a stripper.

Shocked when he finds that she really was a damsel in distress and even more horrified by his own misguided behavior he apologizes profusely and offers dry clothes and a ride home with his chauffeur.  His friends confirm that it had been a case of mistaken identity [they brought the stripper with them] so she accepts.

After her departure, Samson takes the stripper upstairs planning to give his newly cured body some long denied release.  Unfortunately his body knew what it wanted and it had just walked out the door.

The story continues with a fair amount of action, both in and out of the bedroom. Samson pursues Delilah [the whole Samson and Delilah thing?  Smirk.] Past and present betrayals surface but everyone gets by with a little help from their friends.  And Samson?  Let’s just say he doesn’t need a shrink anymore.
