Samson's Lovely Mortal (Scanguards Vampires #1) Review

 

"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."- Goodreads

 

 

 

The summary of the book does a great job at letting you know what the book is about. The book opens with just that. Samson is a millionaire bachelor and no matter who he tries to sleep with he can't get it up...an erection that is.  That is until Delilah is attacked leaving work and she runs up to his door for help. When she falls into him as he opens the door his problem is fixed. When Samson's friend Amaury recommends a shrink, he goes to see him, and at his surprise the doctor tells him to sleep with the human girl Delilah one time to fix his issue for good.  Only they end up really connecting and start to fall for each other. Samson finds himself having odd feelings of jealousy, protectiveness, and love. However, Delilah doesn't know that Samson is a vampire or that he owns the company that she is currently working for.  Delilah is a free-lance auditor who is hired to figure out some financial issues.  Like every romance story there is that point where secrets are revealed and people's feelings are hurt. Only it is mostly Delilah who is hurt, but at times you can see that it was a misunderstanding.

The first mistake Samson makes is running a background check on Delilah and than Delilah in return walking in the room when Samson is getting the low down about Delilah. Delilah is hurt that Samson couldn't just ask her about her background and than is hurt even worse when she finds out he did it because he thought she was after his money. The two eventually patch things up and than when Samson accidentally turns in front of Delilah she wants nothing to do with him again. This time she doesn't want to give him another chance because it is nothing lie in her eyes. Let's be real though, if you were a vampire, you wouldn't just come out and say you are a vampire after knowing someone for only a day; no matter how in love you might be. There is a nice twist at the end of the novel when it comes to who is the one who has been behind the fraud and trying to kill Delilah.

The blood-bonding concept was extremely interesting to me. I have never seen in any vampire novel or show before where a human can live forever and not age. By blood bonding with a vampire they will only age and die when their mate dies. They are still a normal human, they just have to drink from their vampire mate every now and then.  

 

Characters

 

Delilah: Delilah is our leading lady in this novel. I found myself relating to her in a few instances with some of her feelings which doesn't happen much when reading novels. When she found out that Samson did a background check on her; I could understand why she was upset. Instead of asking her directly about why she was out here and interested in him he did a background check on her instead. When someone doesn't trust you from the get go, how do you go on trusting them from that point.  I didn't find her annoying at all. When she found out he was a vampire and didn't want to stay with him anymore it makes sense. Although I would love to have a guy in my life that is like many men in novels I've read...It is that realistic. If what happened to her happened to me in real life I would want to leave him also. I enjoyed reading from her point of view.

 

Samson: Samson is our leading man in this story. He was my favorite point of view to read from in this novel. When reading romance novels I actually prefer a mans perspective because I love reading all the guys thoughts instead of the females.  Samson is our hot shot millionaire who is a vampire and has some issues. At first I thought he was going to be a jerk but he ended up being a gentlemen. Although he made some mistakes in Delilah's eyes they were understandable. I love how protective and in love Samson was with Delilah without him even realizing it.  

  

World

This story's setting takes place in San Francisco, California.  Which, for me was quite exciting as I just returned home from there after vacationing. It was an amazing city and it made it that much more exciting when diving into this book.  Most of the novel takes place in Samson's home. The two main characters spend a lot of their time there. From getting to know each other, having sex, researching, and him keeping her there to keep her safe.  

 

Would I recommend this?

If you love paranormal romance and erotica than I believe you will enjoy this book. It has a few moments where it can be a tad slow but besides that it is a quick fun stand alone read. The erotica was pretty tame as well compared to other erotica novels I have read before. Although you get your awesome sex scenes the language or wording isn't as graphic or descriptive. For example, The Black Dagger Brotherhood is an erotica series that is much more descriptive and graphic in the sex scenes. This story had the perfect amount.  

Continuing On...

 

 

After getting to know Amaury in the first novel I will probably be continuing on with the series. I really enjoyed him as a character and after seeing how hard he is set in his ways, I can't wait to read about the lucky lady who changes him. Sex is just sex to him and there are no emotions and he doesn't care about them what so ever. I won't go out of my way to read it right away but if I am not in the mood for anything I will pick this one up. I would read it in the same format as the first one which was on my kindle.

[Rezension] Tina Folsom - Scanguards Vampire Band 1 "Samsons Sterbliche Geliebte"
Samsons Sterbliche Geliebte - Tina Folsom

Serie: Scanguards Vampire
Autorin: Tina Folsom
Verlag: Selfpublisher

Genre: Romantic Fantasy, Erotik
Seitenzahl: 269 Seiten

Klappentext:

Junggeselle Samson leidet unter Erektionsstörungen. Nicht einmal sein Psychiater kann ihm helfen. Das ändert sich, als die schöne sterbliche Buchprüferin Delilah nach einem scheinbar zufälligen Angriff in seine Arme fällt. Plötzlich ist mit seiner Hydraulik wieder alles in Ordnung - zumindest so lange Delilah die Frau in seinen Armen ist. Seine Skrupel, mit Delilah ins Bett zu gehen, schwinden, als sein Psychiater ihn davon überzeugt, dass dies der einzige Weg ist, sein Problem zu lösen. Mit dem Gedanken, dass alles was er braucht nur eine einzige Nacht mit ihr ist, lässt er sich auf ein Intermezzo voller Leidenschaft mit Delilah ein. Doch einen weiteren Angriff und eine Leiche später, hat Samson alle Hände voll zu tun: nicht nur damit, Delilah zu verheimlichen, dass er ein Vampir ist, sondern auch damit herauszufinden, warum jemand versucht sie loszuwerden.

Die Autorin:

 


Tina Folsom ist gebürtige Deutsche und lebt schon seit über 20 Jahren im englischsprachigen Ausland, die letzten 10 Jahre davon in San Francisco, wo sie mit einem Amerikaner verheiratet ist.
Tina ist schon immer ein bisschen herumzigeunert und hat in vielen verschiedenen Orten gelebt: nach Lausanne in der Schweiz, arbeitete sie kurzzeitig auf einem Kreuzfahrtschiff im Mittelmeer, verbrachte dann ein Jahr in München, bevor sie nach London zog. Dort ließ sie sich als Buchhalterin ausbilden. Aber die Wanderlust ergriff sie nach 8 Jahren in England, und sie zog über den großen Teich.
In New York war sie ein Jahr auf der berühmten Schauspielschule, der American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Danach blieb sie ein Jahr in Los Angeles, wo sie an der UCLA Drehbuchschreiben studierte. Dort lernte sie auch ihren Mann kennen, der in San Francisco lebte. So zog sie kurzerhand drei Monate später nach San Francisco.
Erst war sie dort als Buchhalterin und Steuerberaterin tätig. Sie machte sogar ihre eigene Kanzlei auf. Doch damit war sie noch nicht ganz zufrieden. Eine Zeit lang hatte sie ihr eigenes Immobiliengeschäft, aber das Schreiben vermisste sie sehr. Also fing sie im Herbst 2008 wieder damit an und schrieb ihren ersten Liebesroman.
Vampire haben es ihr schon immer angetan. Mittlerweile hat sie 15 Bücher in Englisch sowie 10 in anderen Sprachen (Französisch, Spanisch und Deutsch) herausgegeben. Sie ist gerade mitten drin, alle ihre Bücher ins Deutsche übersetzen zu lassen.

Meine Meinung:

Der erste Satz des Buch hat mich schon umgehauen.
Ein Vampir mit Errektionsproblemen und außerdem regelmäßig einen Psychiater besucht fand ich von Anfang an sehr witzig.
Samson Woodford ist der Besitzer von Scanguards ein Unternehmen für das für Sicherheit und Bewachung spezialisiert ist. Viele der Angestellten sind ebenfalls Vampire, aber auch Normalsterbliche arbeiten für das Unternehmen. Unterstützt wird Samson von seinen Freunden Amaury, Ricky und Thomas, die ebenfalls Vampire sind.
Durch die Trennung seiner Freundin Ilona, mit der Samson einen Blutbund eingehen wollte, fiel er in ein tiefes Loch und hatte plötzlich Errektionsprobleme.

Deliah wurde von einem Unternehmen engagiert, um das Verschwinden von Geldern aufzudecken. Dadurch gerät sie in Gefahr
Als Deliah auf der Strasse überfallen wurde und sich Hilfe bei Samson Woodford holen wollte, verwechselt dieser Deliah mit einer Stripperin, die seine Freunde anlässlich seines Geburtstages gebucht hatten.
Durch diese Verwechslung war die plötzliche Errektionsstörung verschwunden. Beide verfallen in eine leidenschaftliche Beziehung, mit dem einzigen Problem, das Deliah nicht ahnt, das Samson ein Vampir ist.

Mein Fazit: 

Dies ist der erste Teil von Scanguards Vampir Serie
Ich hab es genossen, das Buch zu lesen. Es hat mich sehr unterhalten gefühlt., obwohl der Thrillanteil erst gegen Ende des Buch zunimmt. Im Grunde handelt es sich um einen leidschaftlich, erotischen Roman mit einem Schuss Thrill. Stellenweise war das Buch sogar sehr witzig und der Schreibstil der Autorin hat das besondere etwas.

Meine Bewertung: 5/5

Mortal Wish (Scanguards Vampires #0.5)
Mortal Wish - Tina Folsom

Thankfully, this was a short story. For me, it didn't add anything to the Scanguards universe, as this was a barely remembered character from the sixth book. It moved very quickly, almost as if it was just a vehicle for the sex scenes. The characters formed an insta-connection, and it wasn't really explained what they saw in each other. Just feels like a money grab by the author in order to keep interest in the series while waiting for the next book.
