Warning this is an 18+ year old only review!

This first in Folsom's Scanguards Vampires series is set in San Francisco and has an opening line that certainly grabs your attention: "Let me suck your cock." This paranormal romance comes complete with vampires, embezzling, betrayal, a mortal love, romance, a little humor and a precious gift.

Folsom has created some very believable characters - both primary and secondary ones, even if she uses much of the traditional vampire lore with only a few twists. The story line is somewhat inventive although it is fairly similar to Lynsay Sands' A Bite To Remember Argeneau series story.

Sexy, 6 ft tall Samson, the male lead, is a vampire having an impotence issue (which is virtually unheard of in a vampire) until he mistakes Delilah for the vamp stripper his friends hired for his birthday party. When she leaves so does his erection.

Delilah, a human forensic accountant and the female lead, is having the nightmares again and then suddenly finds herself in the nightmare in reality. When Samson mistakes her for the stripper and kisses her, she has a "severe attack of lust" and she hasn't felt aroused in a long time.

The story has some great humorous lines in it such as:
"Great, a shrink operating from a dungeon and a Barbie doll as the gatekeeper!"
"Coffins were out. Tempur-Pedic mattresses were in."

Sexually, I rate this as a 3.5 out of 4. There is sensual teasing in a theater and lobby, hot petting in a limo, sexy lovemaking on the rug in front of a fireplace and a very provocative shower scene, not to mention an entire night spent having sex in bed. There is also an angry spanking and anal sex scene that takes place on the couch between secondary characters which is the reason this doesn't have a 3 rating.

This was a very quick read for me - a single afternoon - which I enjoyed. I look forward to reading the other books in this series to see what mischief the secondary characters get into. Paranormal romance and vampire fans should thoroughly enjoy this book.

Warning Spoiler Alert!!!
This comes complete with an HEA.
