Overview

Eight bestselling vampire novels by J.R. Rain, including:

MOON DANCE
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 the world at large thinks Samantha has developed a rare skin disease, a disease which forces her to quit her day job and stay out of the light of the sun. Working the night shift as a private investigator, Samantha is hired by Kingsley Fulcrum to investigate the murder attempt on his life, a horrific scene captured on TV and seen around the country.

VAMPIRE MOON
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.

AMERICAN VAMPIRE
Samantha Moon receives a heartbreaking phone call from a very unlikely source: a five-year-old girl who's been missing for three months. Now on the hunt, Samantha will use her considerable resources—including her growing supernatural abilities—to locate the missing girl before it's too late. And as she gets closer and closer to the horrible truth, she receives devastating news on the home front. Now with her world turned upside down, Samantha Moon is forced to make the ultimate choice of life and death.

MOON CHILD
Samantha Moon is faced with an impossible decision—a decision that no mother should ever have to make. A decision that will change her life, and those she loves, forever. And through it all, Sam finds herself in a lethal game of vampire vs. vampire as a powerful—and desperate—enemy will stop at nothing to claim what he most desires.

THE VAMPIRE WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
Three years ago, high school student Veronica Fortune witnessed the brutal murder of her parents. Now armed and dangerous, she sets out to hunt down the very thing that destroyed her life. That is, until she disappears. Spinoza is a private investigator who specializes in finding the missing. Hired to find Veronica, Spinoza won't let his personal demons—or demons of any kind—get in the way of finding the truth about the missing girl.

THE VAMPIRE WHO PLAYED DEAD
Two years ago, a woman is murdered in cold blood. Now a son she'd given up for adoption returns to claim his inheritance. To verify his claim, a DNA test is ordered. Except there's one problem. Her grave is empty. Spinoza is hired to find the missing body, and will follow a set of clues that leads him to the unthinkable, a world of nightmares and dreamscapes.

THE VAMPIRE CLUB
Over 150 years ago, a man was killed with a silver bullet. A man who just might be a vampire. The Vampire Club, a group of students who meet regularly, think that they might have found their first documented case of a real vampire. The hunt begins, and as they close in on their immortal prize, they soon realize that they aren’t the only ones interested in the vampire.

BAD BLOOD
They call him Spider. And people come to him when they have a problem. So when teenager Parker Cole approaches Spider at night school, he figures she's just another problem waiting to happen. But then she tells him about her father, who runs a cult called Cloudland based at the foot of mystical Mount Shasta, California. And then she tells Spider about her best friend, who is now dead, her body completely drained of blood. Spider wonders if the death is the work of a fellow vampire...or if he's now the target of a sinister game designed to lure him to Cloudland, where darker mysteries await.

    One of the best writers of our generation

    JR Rain is one of the best writers I have ever had a chance to read. I found him from great reviews and finding a series really cheap on B&N. I have to say I wasn't expecting much but I was drawn into a world and I could not put my nook down. I found myself laughing out loud at the antic of the heroine Samantha Moon and all of the other wonderfully written characters. I would highly recommend JR Rains books to anyone.

    Fairly Interesting Story- Needs Polishing!

    First of all, this e-book does not contain 8 novels, the last 3 are novellas.
    Still, it was a good deal.
    I will do my best to summarize without spoilers.
    Samantha Moon was attacked 6 years ago and turned into a vampire. She has 2 kids who think she's just ill and allergic to the sun, basically, and a schmuck of a husband who knows she's a vampire.
    One of the things I find bothersome is that Samantha has been a vampire for 6 years, yet she is just now discovering all her "new" abilities during the course of these books.
    What was she doing during the past few vamp years?
    Also, solutions to her problems and the mysteries she investigates as a private eye often come too easily. Whether they be paranormal solutions (Oh look! A brand new vampire power!), or lucky coincidences (a jerk that is blackmailing her with her vampire secret happens to have a big secret of his own that she stumbles upon).
    I was annoyed by her excessive repetitive of calling herself a "freak"- it just got old.
    Also, very early on, even while still with her jerk husband, she finds almost every man she sees to be sexy.
    The author describes an overweight cop with a big belly and a donut-eating problem to be attractive because the big belly is "manly." Oh what planet, exactly?
    I found it lacking the basic settings like what she looked like and where the story was set in the beginning. It took a very long time to ascertain these details. Many readers like to have a foundation and this was not laid for us.
    Blood drinking and sunlight aversion and such were mentioned. Well done. Fangs were not. Does she have them? Do they retract? Stay out? Big disappointment there.
    There are several inconsistencies that simple editing could have fixed too. For example, saying there have been 3 male, 3 female victims on one page, but on the next page saying there have been 5 victims. She says she can't taste anything anymore, yet she binges on a Ding-Dong and relishes the flavor. Or minor spelling errors.
    I was annoyed when a character was revealed to be Elvis Presley in hiding because a very successful vampire author has already done that!
    I also found it very frustrating how neglectful a mother this character is, only to have people in her life tell her what a good mom she is.
    She claims to be close to her sister, yet she confides only in the men in her life that she barely knows. Her sister is there as a babysitter and occasional drinking partner.
    All the criticisms aside, I still wanted to know what was going to happen next in her life. I like the investigation aspect and the love triangle dynamic.
    This series and character have a lot of promise. But it needs polish.

    I recommend skipping the Spinoza shorts. It's just a Samantha Moon rehash with less flair. Another investigator, this one human. Another cop who reluctantly helps out and still eats alot of donuts. Not as insteresting without Sam's powers, which albeit too convenient at times, are intriguing.
    Try a bit harder to come up with something new, next time. Even the detective's name is super close to another in Samantha's story. (Hanner and Hammer.)

    I bought this set for $2.99, definitely not worth 12.99. This could have been a good series if there was more detail within the romances and less about her calling herself a freak. If you are reading for a private investigator story only; it could be rated a 3. Overall I found the series seriously lacking.

    Can't put it down!

    To me this is a whole new take on the old vampire story. A vampire for hire & with a family! Excellent. I bought the first book, Moon Dance, by itself. I got so hooked on the storyline & characters that I bought the set, Love Bleeds. If you like the vampire/supernatural/dedective stories, you'll like this.

    Strongly Recommend. Very good series

    An attention grabbing plot line, spills, chills & police chases! Not quite, but this series meshes the Murder Mystery/Thriller - Paranormal genres VERY well. The language was a bit rougher than I like, or I'd have given it 5 stars. Very well worth the $ if you are a fan of both genres. I look forward to owning the entire "world" of stories.

    J.R. Rain is an outstanding author. I was sucked into his novel

    J.R. Rain is an outstanding author. I was sucked into his novels immediately the second I opened the first Samantha Moon series. He has even inspired me to finally start writing my own series, knock on wood they turn out to be something amazing, but all us J.R. Fan's know that my books probably will never be as amazing and captivating as his. The best part of his books is the quirky comments or thoughts they are just hilarious! Thanks J.R. for your amazing work and inspiration! Kym K.

    This is an INCREDIBLE deal!! 8! of JR's vampire novels!! I have LOVED each of these novels seperately and to have them together is even better!! JR is an incredible writer and the Vampire for Hire Series is one of my favorite. It is a fun story about a soccer mom turned vampire and how she deals with her new life. The Spinoza series is also a great one and the others in this set are not to be missed either!. Make sure you pick this up while you can!
