A Complex and Compelling Glimpse at One of the Bible's Most Notorious Women

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.

I have often stated Angela Hunt is a must-read author for me, and that I rarely read any other Biblical fiction but hers. I loved the first two Dangerous Beauty novels, Esther: Royal Beauty and Bathsheba, Reluctant Beauty, and was eager to see how she crafted Delilah's story. I was not disappointed. While the Bible gives little information about Delilah, Hunt's extensive research and study of human behavior results in a captivating and plausible tale that is true to the Biblical account. Delilah is often despised and disdained, yet Hunt makes her a likable and believable character whose flaws and scars inform her choices. Delilah: Treacherous Beauty is riveting, and I read it almost non-stop in a weekend. Grab your copy of this must-read novel today, and pick up the rest of the series as well.
