Shelfari edited the description of Vampire Moon Thursday, January 6, 2011.
Mother, wife, private investigator...vampire. Six 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 VAMPIRE MOON, sequel to MOON DANCE, private investigator Samantha Moon finds herself hunting down a powerful crime lord and protecting an innocent woman from her ruthless ex-husband — all while two very different men vie for her heart. And as the stakes grow higher and her cases turn personal, Samantha Moon will do whatever it takes to protect the innocent and bring two cold-blooded killers to justice — her own brand of justice. **Acclaim for the Novels of J.R. Rain** "Gripping, adventurous, and romantic — J.R. Rain's The Lost Ark is a breakneck thriller that traces the thread of history from Biblical stories to current-day headlines. Be prepared to lose sleep!" —JAMES ROLLINS, international bestselling author of Altar of Eden and The Doomsday Key "I enjoyed this immensely. The protagonist, Samantha Moon, is a female vampire with a husband and children. Those predate her condition; six years ago she was attacked by a vampire and rendered into one. Now she's trying to carry on with family and private eye business, and she's a feisty, skilled person, so is doing mostly okay. It is not a horror story; she buys animal blood to eat and doesn't generally prey on humans. But her husband has an increasing problem with her coldness — not of spirit, but of body. 'You sicken me and scare the hell out of me,' he tells her. 'And when I touch you it's all I can do to not gag.' She replies, 'Words every wife wants to hear.' I love this! What makes it special are her character and nature." —PIERS ANTHONY, New York Times bestselling author of A Spell for Chameleon and On A Pale Horse "Dark Horse is one of the best books I've read in a long time! A great classic detective story with a modern twist. Unique and interesting characters (I think I'm half in love with Jim Knighthorse now!), a great plot that kept me guessing until the end, and some of the funniest lines I've read anywhere." —GEMMA HALLIDAY, author of Deadly Cool and Play Dead "Impossible to put down. J.R. Rain's Moon Dance is a fabulous urban fantasy." —APRIL VINE, author of The Midnight Rose and Blindfolded by Lust "Moon Dance is absolutely brilliant!" —LISA TENZIN-DOLMA, author of Understanding the Planetary Myths and The Dolphin Experience "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 Letters from David and The Romance Writer's Pink Pages "I totally loved The Body Departed. As someone who communicates with those who are either earthbound or have crossed over — your descriptions and interpretations of the dialogue and circumstances could not have been written more accurately. My favorite scene is the one of Jesus stepping down from the cross and then the passionate and compassionate way it was treated as he went back to the cross. I will relive that for a long time to come. You're a wonderfully descriptive writer who paints a very creative, visionary canvass based in a paranormal pallet that only a few experience and many can enjoy." —JULIE BELMONT, author of The Path to Personal Success and Freedom and Seizing Your Success "I thoroughly enjoyed The Vampire With the Dragon Tattoo from one of my favorite authors. A great way to spend a few hours of the afternoon." —JEN ASHTON, author of The Pleasure Diaries and Ashton Ashton We All Fall Down "I love Jim Knighthorse! Please write faster, Mr. Rain!" —ELAINE BABICH, author of You Never Called Me Princess and Relatively Normal "Powerful stuff!" —AIDEN JAMES, author of Cades Cove and Deadly Night
