About this ebook

The Scanguards Vampires series - over 1 Million copies sold worldwide!

The Scanguards Vampires series continues with the Scanguards hybrids: Ryder’s Storm (Book 13)

Vampire bachelor Samson, owner of the successful bodyguard company Scanguards, 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 to put her in danger.

"I'm addicted to Tina Folsom's books! The Scanguards series is one of the hottest things to happen to vampire romance. If you love scorching, fast-paced reads, don't miss this thrilling series!" --- Lara Adrian, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Midnight Breed series

4 stars — This was a reread, but I hadn’t written a review the first time I read it, so this is just my current thoughts. Course I didn’t write my review right away, so this is going to be a lame review again. I will admit that I liked the overarching plot and world setup more than the romance this time around. Which is not to say the romance was bad, I definitely enjoyed it… But the steamy scenes weren’t necessarily that inspiring…this is weird to admit, but I really wasn’t a fan of referring to Delilah’s genitals as pink petals…it grossed me out for some reason. But that’s my own hang up. So basically I ended up enjoying the non-steamy romance moments more. Samson was intriguing because of what he was going through with his…er…issues. It was a really unique spin to put on a story, an impotent vampire. It was actually kind of sad though, how lonely he was, and how he was trying to force a connection because he wanted some family. I really loved his backstory and how that came into play throughout the story. Delilah was intriguing herself. I loved how smart she was, how she was looking for that control in her job — trying to fix something from her past by trying to fix things for people now. It was a bit weird, but it worked for me. I loved that she did eventually get resolution on that issue. I seriously loved the set of characters we’re introduced to in Samson’s friends/employees. The whole setup of Scanguards is intriguing, and I enjoyed the secret underground world. I felt for a lot of the characters, I was intrigued by so many of their stories. I think that was truly a strong part. It made me desperately want to seek out and read them all. I’ve read the first 3 or 4, so I’ll be rereading them, and then continuing on with the few others I have. So yeah…really enjoyed the world building, characters and romance, and the potential for the series.

I've read the whole Scanguard series by Tina Folsom and loved each and every book. It has it all: love, sec, drama, battle good vs evil, humor and sadness. Sometimes in a series the books become predictable. NOT THIS SERIES.
