Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Seamy but with a story"

    I like my romantic stories to have a real plot, not just a device to connect various steamy scenes. This book introduces a nice series with a believable back story. Not saving the world from evil, but preserving your little corner of it as best you can, just as we all do. Kind of like Lyndsay Sand's Argeneau series.
    Yes the book is steamy, but the people are normal for the most part, not unreal sex machines, and they have, or develop, real feelings for each other. (Though I think the heroine's change of heart is a little abrupt at the end, one moment she's fleeing in terror from him and the next she's sacrificing herself for him?)
    And I like the idea of a vampire needing a shrink. I hope Tina Folsom writes a book for Dr. Drake eventually.
    I recommend this book and this series.
    The one thing that mars the audiobook for me is that the narrator is too monotone. Even in the steamy parts his voice hardly varies. He does do character voices well though.

    Would you listen to Samson's Lovely Mortal again? Why?

    Yes, I would love reading Samson's Lovely Mortal again. This book is awesome


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Samson's Lovely Mortal?

    That Samson told Delilah that he's a vampire

    No. This is the first time I listened to Kevin Foley


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    IDK I never though about it.

    "ugh. couldn't finish it"

    Terrible, I could not finish it. I am not a prude by no means but seriously the F bomb is constant. Just to much for me. Pass on this unless you like the F bomb repeatedly.

    "Could be worth following"

    Let me start with this series is nothing like nor do I believe it is trying to be like the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. It could be a series worth following, but don't buy it expecting something it's not.
    I found the characters likable enough. The story was good, but it was basically a nice romance that happened to include vampires. The 2nd installment is available but I will not run to get it. Do not think it's worth buying but maybe worth a credit.

    I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    "Good Vamp romance :D"

    3-3.5 stars

    This was a good story. I liked Samson & Delilah...the name pairing was a bit cliche but I liked the characters themselves.

    Delilah is a forensic accountant that is in town working a job. She's a good woman but travels a lot for her job so she's rather lonely. While getting dinner she's attacked and ends up on Samson's doorstep and then mistaken for a stripper. Regardless of their less than stellar first meeting she's attracted to Samson.

    Samson is having some issues with getting an erection but when Delilah stumbles through his door and in to his arms his problem is suddenly gone. Samson is thrilled but quickly realizes that his problem is only solved with Delilah. When his shrink says to sleep with her he finds that one time will never be enough.

    I liked Samson and Delilah and the intrigue that causes danger to Delilah was interesting. There were parts that weren't perfect (maybe a little annoying at the character's stupidity) but I was happy with the way they came together though. I enjoyed this story and thought the ending was very good.

    "Samson and Delilah."

    I enjoyed this book very much although there was not a lot of plot, a slight mystery but more romance. It was a fast paced and easy listen. I was disappointed to find out this was the only book Audible has in this series that is recorded. After looking up the authors web page I discovered there are more books in this series, at least 6 more, hopefully they will come out on audio soon. Warning some of the sex is taboo so, if you don't like that kind a thing steer away from this book. Narrator was good, easy to listen to.

    "Predictable but enjoyable"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was fairly predictable however I still enjoyed it. It reminded me of the Black Dagger brotherhood series but a lot tamer. It will be interesting to see if the author takes the same path, it is looking that way. Even though there are similarities it is still worthwhile listening to.

    "Great Story with a silly title"
    If you could sum up Samson's Lovely Mortal in three words, what would they be?

    Auditor meets Vampire


    What other book might you compare Samson's Lovely Mortal to and why?

    Nothing jumps to mind


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Absolutely the blood bonding at the end of the book. It was so long coming and Samson had made so many mistakes it was touching to see it finally happen.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Delilah's father tells her she was not responsible for the death of her baby brother.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first Tina Folsom book but it will not be my last. I went and bought the rest of the Scansgard Vampire books on kindle after this book and I hope that Audible gets the rest of this series. If you love Hot. Sexy Vampires and scorching sex scenes THIS book is the one for you.

    "Fun and Romantic"
    What did you love best about Samson's Lovely Mortal?

    I have read all the Scanguards Vampire Novels and loved them all. I was delighted to see this one on Audible. I bought it and am thoroughly enjoying the experience. I like the comaraderie of the group of vampires that form Scanguards.


    What does Kevin Foley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The beginning----You'll see.
