Life is not easy in Philistia, especially not for a woman and child alone. When beautiful, wounded Delilah finds herself begging for food to survive, she resolves that she will find a way to defeat all the men who have taken advantage of her. She will overcome the roadblocks life has set before her, and she will find riches and victory for herself.
When she meets a legendary man called Samson, she senses that in him lies the means for her victory. By winning, seducing, and betraying the hero of the Hebrews, she will attain a position of national prominence. After all, she is beautiful, she is charming, and she is smart. No man, not even a supernaturally gifted strongman, can best her in a war of wits.
Loraine5 Stars Out Of 5A riveting read.November 17, 2016LoraineQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I will never view Delilah from the Bible in the same way again. Wow. It was so easy to dislike Delilah while I viewed her as just an evil woman in the pages of the Bible. Granted, this is a fiction account so we dont really know what she was like, but the author made her human for me. It was a riveting read. (Full review at my website)
debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Delilah ~ Angela HuntAugust 1, 2016debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a book based on the life of Delilah from the bible. It is not a story based only on the history and fantasy part of the bible, it is a story with the basis of biblical sense. Angela does a great job of putting you back into the time of Delilah and her life as a women in a man's world. Each chapter is either told in Delilah's vision or Samson's vision. It has great detail and keeps you interested by all the drama, story line and attention to details that will make you feel you are in the book. The story tugs on your feelings and emotions that keep you wanting more.
I would recommend this book to those that want a great read that you can't put down. It keeps going with lots of details and history. If you really enjoy history or learning about the bible then this book is for you. Angela Hunt never let's her readers down!! Great, entertaining, emotional and so much more of a read.

SqwigglesCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Interesting Depiction of the Story of Samson and DelilahJuly 29, 2016SqwigglesCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Hunt did a good job of depicting the biblical story of Samson and Delilah. She gave readers a fresh new perspective and a possible reason of why Delilah made the choices she made. What I liked about the story is that Hunt writes about Delilah's life and what made her become the woman she is and what led her to make the choices she made. Hunt made both Samson and Delilah like any average human and we all make mistakes and don't always think wisely. Overall, I really liked the book. I liked Delilah as a character, probably more than Samson. For me, the story started out really interesting, but in the middle there were a few parts that were a bit slow. I also thought that it would be more of a love story, but I could tell that the main focus of the book was the biblical story of Samson and Delilah, not the love story between them. Romance was a smaller theme in the book, but considering what the book was about it worked fine as a smaller theme. The book left you thinking about love, making the right choices in life, and forgiveness. Overall, I would give this book 4 stars and I would recommend it.
I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.
CherylAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5powerful retellingJuly 29, 2016CherylAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Another stunning biblical retelling by Angela Hunt! A lot of research and dedication goes into writing, especially when the characters are based on real people. Angela Hunt put a lot of care into the story of Delilah, who I feel I know so much better now.
if the people of Gaza cannot accept your black skin, what makes you think they will accept mine? ~Quote from the book
DelilahTreacherous Beauty is the third book in the three-part A Dangerous Beauty series. Each of these novels are spectacular and difficult to put down once you start them. (#1 Esther, 2014, Bathsheba, 2015, and #3 Delilah, 2016.)
Ms. Hunt has developed an easy to read and relate story, even though this takes place during Old Testament times. I feel Ive walked the ancient streets and experienced the hardships of that era.
Like hungry vultures, men would stop moving and remain still, their gazes fastened to me. If I happened to glance at their faces, their expressions made me feel that I was something other than a girlan animal to be hunted, perhaps, or an opponent to be humbled. ~Quote from the book
From the very first two lines, I was completely and hopelessly hooked. Opening lines can make or break a readers attention, and this one fiercely grabbed me. I felt Delilahs intense emotions and could see the world through her eyes.
The story is told from Delilahs and Samsons first person views, which I enjoyed. The first person telling makes it easy for me to feel their emotions, see their views, and understand their faults. Though we already know what the Bible says about this pair, Ms. Hunt gives us a fictional account of Delilahs past, and why she thinks and acts the way she does.
A powerful story of loss, love, and betrayal.
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers
First Lines: No woman sets out to be wicked. Im not sure I can say the same thing about men.
I received a Review Copy from Bethany House and NetGalley.
beckieAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Samson and DelilahJuly 17, 2016beckieAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0"Delilah" by Angela Hunt is the latest in the Dangerous Beauty Series. Though Delilah has always been viewed as a sneaky, bad girl who threw Samson under a bus for the fun of it, this novel brings the question "why would she do that?" to mind. Why? "Delilah" takes the view of Delilah and Samson switching back and forth between each chapter. This gives the reader a chance to see the point of view between each character. Samson is an incredibly naive and overly-confident man while Delilah has been horrible abused and has absolutely nothing to loose and every thing to gain.
As you know the story is the telling of a man with unnatural strength, the strength to kill a lion with his bare hands and the woman who he tells the secret as to why. She of course gives it up to authorities who take away his strength. This is a novel though; it takes liberties that can be assumed from the bible story and adds historically accurate facts. I thought this was a great book and I highly recommend it. I received this novel for free in exchange for an honest review from Bethany House.
