Product Description

Product Description

Mother, wife, private investigator...vampire. Seven years ago, federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire.

Now in MOON ISLAND, Samantha Moon is hired to look into the mysterious drowning of a super-rich hotel tycoon. The death occurred exactly one year ago, at the family’s annual retreat on a private island in the Pacific Northwest. Now, as the family gathers again, Samantha Moon is asked to find a ruthless killer—all while a massive storm bears down upon the small island. But there’s another storm brewing upon Skull Island, a storm of the supernatural kind. Sam is about to come face-to-face with evil incarnate...a monster who will stop at nothing to possess her completely—mind, body and soul—and destroy all that she loves.

**Acclaim for the novels of J.R. Rain**

“Be prepared to lose sleep!”
—James Rollins, author of Bloodline and The Blood Gospel

“I love this!”
—Piers Anthony, author of On A Pale Horse and Luck of the Draw

“J.R. Rain delivers a blend of action and wit that always entertains. Quick with the one-liners, but his characters are fully fleshed out (even the undead ones) and you’ll come back again and again.”
—Scott Nicholson, author of Chronic Fear and After: The Shock

“Dark Horse is the best book I’ve read in a long time!”
—Gemma Halliday, author of Spying in High Heels and Unbreakable Bond

“Powerful stuff!”
—Aiden James, author of Destiny of Coins and Cades Cove

“Moon Dance is a must read. If you like Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter, be prepared to love J.R. Rain’s Samantha Moon, vampire private investigator.”
—Eve Paludan, author of Taking Back Tara and New York Minute

“Impossible to put down. J.R. Rain’s Moon Dance is a fabulous urban fantasy replete with multifarious and unusual characters, a perfectly synchronized plot, vibrant dialogue and sterling witticism all wrapped in a voice that is as beautiful as it is rich and vividly intense as it is relaxed.”
—April Vine, author of Unbound and Intrigue in India

“Is it possible to redefine two genres in one book? I don’t know, but J.R. Rain has left a lasting impression for the vampire and mystery genres.”
—P.J. Day, author of King’s Blood and The Sunset Prophecy

4.0 out of 5 stars samantha Moon gets better 13 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
JR Rain is finally driving Sam Moon forward. Less of what's happened in the past and more of Sam in a new adventure. Finally a story with more intrugue, Hope the next episode is not too long in coming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moonshine 8 Feb 2013
By ACB(swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
J.R. Rain knows how to pull readers into the spell of an ex-FBI turned vampire for hire with conscience. Samantha is a super-mom who is in the spell of helping the innocent, especially if children are involved. The captivation of the scenario of a conscientious vampire is the heart of the narrative. A super-rich tycoon has drowned. The author explores the investigation, ( the opening pages bring in Detective Sherbet, a sure-fire sucker!), introducing a hellish monster personified. Not just a foe but a potential threat to Samantha's existence. The paranormal may seem comfortable for our heroine, but not this time. The plot and locations involved are rolled out as inevitably as the tide. The author, in this short novel, develops the story with a large proportion of twists and turns. A super mystery. More to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars New moon 30 Aug 2013
By nabalie
Format:Kindle Edition
Samantha usually stays close to home but with her appointment book free and clear she heads to Skull Island in the hopes of solving the accidental murder of a rich Tycoon which occured more than a year previously.
With their bond growing Allisons powers are increasing and she tags along knowing that sometime during this investigation she will lend aide to her Supernatural friend. The duo seperate and gather clues which lead them to believe there is more to the Thurman family than meets the eye, one that only Samantha can see.

Samantha always knew evil existed but what she see's on Skull Island shakes her to her core and even has her calling Kingsley after everything that's happened.

Really enjoyed this installment that took Sam away from her usual cohort and showed us more of Allison and even the mysterious Maximus after another Medallion is uncovered.

There was the usual self deprecating from Sam which I try not to notice as it seems silly such a wonderful person would think so little of herself just because her DNA has changed.
A spark of hope was ignited with her relationship with Kingsley as he valiantly rode to the rescue on the stormy waves to save her so fingers crossed something happens between them but things are heating up between her and the boxer Russell so who knows where her love life will lead.

There's the hint the next sequel will involve Fang and I really hope it does as i've missed his involvment so hope he'll take more of a forward role soon.

Another dramatic, fast paced tale from this seasoned mystery author that leaves us thirsty for more.

I cannot get enough of the Vampire for Hire series. All books so far have been gripping reads. Some I have favoured more than others but in the main brilliant story writing. Excellent.
