Micah Sheehan believes that sexuality reveals a lot about a person and is not a topic to be avoided. He loves the Italians because they will display a book of nudes next to a book about the Pope - and they see nothing wrong with it. Among other things he loves are: his brilliant wife, his adorable kittens, the blunt style of Henry Miller, the seductive prose of Anais Nin, Leonard Cohen, Russian literature, and any song with the "F" word. A student of philosophy, he writes stories that are sometimes thoughtful, sometimes naughty, but hopefully always arousing.
Delilah is an independent woman whose home lies between two bitter enemies - the Philistines and the Israelite tribe of Dan. Belonging to neither people, she struggles to keep possession of her land in a world dominated by men. She discovers that her sexuality allows her to influence those with power, which helps keep her land but compromises her passion.
Samson is a man without an equal, either in battle or in the bedroom. He seeks a woman who can satisfy him, and travels to a nearby Philistine town to find a mate. When he is rejected, Samson seeks vengeance and stands alone in war against a nation.
Thrown together in a violent world, Samson and Delilah wonder if they have finally found the love they have each been seeking. Caught between danger and their passion for each other, they realize they might have found love too late.
