Samson's Lovely Mortal

Scanguards Vampires #1

Samson is a vampire with an unusual problem, he's impotent. He goes to see San Francisco's only `vampire shrink', Dr. Drake, to try to help him with his little issue. He really doesn't want his friends finding out about his problem, because he knows he'll never hear the end of it if his problem got out. He believes that the problem stems from catching his fianc‚e, the woman that he was going to blood bond with for life, cheating on him with another vampire. Little does he know that Delilah is the cure to his impotence. But Delilah is human, and has been hired to audit the company that Samson runs, Scanguards Security. Samson thinks that Delilah is the one responsible for stealing money from the company, as he'd rather suspect her than to think that it might be an inside job, or to admit that she makes his blood boil and his impotence disappear. They're both put in serious danger by the real thief. And Samson discovers that Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

This is the first book in the `Scanguards Vampire' series. I like the play on the `Samson and Delilah' theme, it's a fresh modern take on an old story. Although this Samson and Delilah have nothing on the Biblical Samson and Delilah, by no means! I couldn't put this book down, and stayed up till 5:00 a.m. reading it. I lost all track of time; I only meant to read a few chapters, not read it all and stay up until it was almost time to get my kids up for school. I think you'll be hooked as well.

Book Blurb for Samson's Lovely Mortal

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.
