Samson's Lovely Mortal: Scanguards Vampires, Book 1 | [Tina Folsom]

Samson's Lovely Mortal: Scanguards Vampires, Book 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.

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.

    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.

    "Heh its OK"
    Would you try another book from Tina Folsom and/or Kevin Foley?

    I don't know, this book was extremely predictable. I was not impressed with the narrator at all you might as well have Ben Stein read the story with the lack of emotions.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tina Folsom again?

    Not if its this predictable


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I didn't like his female voices at all and he showed very little emotion when the characters were yelling at each other ect.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Honeslty my favorite part was in the begining when Delilah falls through Samson's front door and he thinks she's a stripper for his birthday party, that was hilarious....the book needed more of that.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend Jacquelyn Frank and Kresley Cole for paranormal romance books, they are deeper and more creative.

    Where does Samson's Lovely Mortal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    TOP 100


    What did you like best about this story?

    THIS IS PARANORMAL EROTICA SO OVIOUSLY THE WHOLE BOOK. LOVED THE BUTLER.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Foley – was your favorite?

    SAMSON AND THE BUTLER. FOLEY DID REALLY GOOD WITH ALL THE VOICES BOTH MALE AND FEMALE. HOPE THE REST OF THE SERIES WILL BE DONE IN AUDIO FORM AND FOLEY CONTINUES WITH THE NARRATION.


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

    IT'S PARANORMAL EROTIC, BUT WITH A GREAT AND IMAGINATIVE STORY LINE. THE FIRST MEET BETWEEN SAMPSON AND DELILAH (I KNOW NAMES A BIT CAMPY, BUT IT WORKS WELL FOR THE STORY LINE) WAS GREAT.

    Story
    "A Monumental Piece of Garbage"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A Mormon grandmother


    Has Samson's Lovely Mortal turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. However, I won't read anything from this author again unless I feel like getting perspective from an 11 year old who's just took their first creative writing course.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kevin Foley’s performances?

    OH HELL NO. There was NOTHING sexy about his vocal performance. The female lead was read like a caricature. It was comedic, not alluring or intense.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes. The ability to turn it off was a very redeeming quality in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Someday I'm going to buy a copy of this book and recover it with a new title: "How To Write When The Left and Right Hemispheres of Your Brain Are Disconnected"

    All I can say about this book is yes the sex is hot..but it is constant..i like a little more story with my romance..and the narration is not the best..not bad but not the best..and it just kind of read like slapstick comedy made into a porn..if you want something to seduce you look elsewhere..if you want a wham bam thank you mam you read in chapters..this is your book.

    Absolutely hated this book. I don't mind a little sex but really! I didn't finish. Heck, I barely started. If I could give ten negative stars, I would.

    "Terrible narration of a fabulous story"

    This is one of my favorite Tina Folsom books. I had been terribly disappointed with the narration, however. Please save this one for the book format and listen to your own inner voice narration. The story itself is perfect, fun, thrilling, mysterious and romantic!

    "A decent listen"

    There was a little too much sappy romance but overall a decent listen. There wasn't too much character development. Kinda of blah. I had read the book but didn't realize it until after I bought it. :)
