"The book was highly entertaining, yet never lost sight of the Christian message. I recommend Delilah to those who love Christian fiction and to all readers who enjoy great writing and storyline."
--Angelia Menchan, Author and Avid Reader
"Delilah is a good read even for those who are not regular readers of urban or Christian fiction." ~ TaKeshia Brooks-AAMBC Reviewer

Top Customer Reviews
Delilah Baker was a changed woman or so she thought. She lived a hard life and survived abuse from those who were supposed to take care of her. But past indiscretions were catching up with her. Her boss blackmailed her into doing things that she initially didn't want to do. Delilah felt that she could stall her boss long enough until she have everything that she wanted, enough money so that she could be comfortable, a man that she loved and thought she would marry and a church home. There was just one huge obstacle, his fiancé.
Samson Judges is the young Pastor of Peaceful Rest. Samson had for the most part avoided temptations in his young life and was arrogant enough to think that he was above reproach. He has lived a charmed life. He has great parents, a job for which he was predestine and a woman that he loved and was engaged to marry. He also had Delilah, his Achilles' heel.
Samson and Delilah had a tumultuous relationship that causes them both to lose things that that they worked so hard for.
Delilah deals with morals, temptations and judgment. I would definitely recommend this book. It is a fast easy read and it will keep you glued to the pages until the very end. How far would you go when temptations are calling your name? Delilah leaves you wanting more.
Reviewed Janet Malcolm
A copy of this book was provided by the author for the purposes of review.
Delilah Baker is determined to win the heart and soul of Pastor Samson Judges, a man she first came to know with underhanded intentions. The characters, named for their Biblical counterparts, play their roles exactly as expected, with Delilah tempting Samson even as she knows it may bring about his demise, and Samson being unable to withstand the “wiles of Delilah”.
Even though based on the Biblical story, Ms. Goss’s book is not your average Christian fiction. More sensual than you would anticipate, and although it is one that remains primarily behind closed doors, the characters actively are involved in a sexual relationship outside the boundaries of marriage.
I expected the be bored with yet another adaptation of this age-old story and began my read with a 3-Star max rating already in mind. I was pleased to be in error. You know the story line and know how it will end, yet Ms. Goss is able to take you hostage from beginning to end with just enough twist through an interesting cast of additional key characters (including Delilah's best friend, Samson's mother, and the church secretary). A good read and definitely worth 4 stars.
Delilah is a businesswoman employed by Trust Enterprises, who has been assigned and highly paid to work a special assignment. Her initial mission is to get the real estate company the land that a church family owns and occupies. But as her mission unfolds Delilah begins to focus on the pastor of the church more than the church property. Delilah is full of style, confidence, and skills to get whatever and whoever she wants.....and she wants her pastor. Delilah also has issues with some of her childhood memories and her past lifestyle, that she would just love to leave in the past. So Delilah reaches out to her dedicated pastor, Samson Judges, for counseling.....among other things.
Samson Judges has it all..........He is the pastor of Peaceful Rest Missionary Baptist Church, who is loved and respected by his proud parents, his congregation, and his lovely financee, Julia. Samson knows his "soon-to-be" wife, Julia, will be a perfect, wholesome, "holier than thou" first lady....or is she as "wholesome" as she appears to be. Samson appreciates and loves his church members and refuses to sale the church property. But once Samson falls to temptation with one of his church members, he struggles with his secrets and plans to hold on to everything he has, by any means necessary.
DELILAH shows that secrets can destroy regardless of one's title, status, or personality.Read more ›
