Sin & Honey: The Touch of Betrayal by Taryn Scarlett #bookreview

Touch of Betrayal Tour Banner


For fans of Anita Diamant’s The Red Tent comes the second novella in the scintillating SIN & HONEY series featuring the Bible’s most powerful and seductive women…

So Delilah said to Samson, “Tell me the secret of your great strength.”—Judges 16:6
Delilah would do anything to escape her past.

Falling for Samson only got in the way.

Taryn Scarlett’s lush reimagining of Samson and Delilah uncovers the hidden truth behind the girl who became the most infamous seductress in history.

Delilah has come to the quiet valley of Sorek to start a new life, but when a man blackmails her with a devastating secret, she learns that not all sins can be buried in the past. In a dangerous bargain for her freedom, she agrees to seduce Samson, a notorious killer threatening the region—and if she can’t uncover the secret to his strength, she’ll forfeit her life.

But Samson is different than any man she has ever met before: godlike in his strength but guarding a passionate vulnerability that draws Delilah to him. Will she betray the man she has begun to fall for—or will she betray her own heart for freedom?

My Review:

I seriously enjoyed this story. I read the first book Seven Years Of Longing, which was a sweet love story with a great ending, so I was pretty excited to read this one.

Everyone that has grown up with the Bible has preconceived notions regarding the story of Samson and Delilah. Since I am always the champion of the underdog, when I read their story I always felt like Delilah was misunderstood. Taryn must be channeling me because the story that unfolded before me was exactly how I always envisioned the story of Samson and Delilah really happened.

Both severely misunderstood and trampled on by life, Samson and Delilah naturally were drawn to each other despite the fact that Delilah was harboring ill intentions at first. I was impressed with Delilah’s strength and Samson’s gentleness.

The Touch of Betrayal is a fabulous, erotic re-telling of a famous Bible story and if you are like me, you will love it. Taryn writes strong, fantastic female leads.
