Overview


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

Samantha’s adventures as a night-roaming vampire and private investigator in Samantha Moon include ...

Vampire for Hire #1) Moon Dance: Samantha is hired by Kingsley Fulcrum to investigate the attempt on his life, a horrific scene watched on TV around the country. But Kingsley isn’t exactly what he appears to be; after all, there is a reason why he survived five shots to the head.
Vampire for Hire #2) Vampire Moon: Samantha Moon hunts down a powerful crime lord and protects an innocent woman from her ruthless ex-husband—all while two very different men vie for her heart. 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.
Vampire for Hire #3) American Vampire: Samantha receives a heartbreaking call from a very unlikely source: a five-year-old girl who’s been missing for three months. Using her considerable resources—including her growing supernatural abilities—to locate the missing girl before it’s too late, Samantha also receives devastating news on the home front, forcing her to make the ultimate choice of life and death.
Vampire for Hire #4) Moon Child: Samantha Moon is faced with an impossible decision that will change her life and those of the ones she loves forever—a decision that no mother should ever have to make. And through it all, Samantha finds herself in a lethal game of vampire versus vampire as a powerful and desperate enemy will stop at nothing to claim what he most desires.
Christmas Moon: With Christmas just around the corner, Samantha takes on a very strange case: A priceless family treasure has been stolen, something passed down through the generations and buried in secrets. And Samantha gets half of whatever it is ... if she can find it first.

... and an all-new Samantha Moon short story by J.R. Rain.

I loved these books! I finished all 4 while on my Christmas break from work (teacher). I just wish the next 3 were on the Nook as well. Guess I'll have to wait. :( But, the books are suspenseful, and they definitely make you super angry at times. I get into books, so emotion runs deep, and these books, WOW!!

I love vampire books and one of my favorite series of all time is the Dresden files, so a series that is about a vampire private detective sounded amazing, and I was not disappointed.  At first I was not sure I was going to enjoy this series since Samantha Moon’s husband was a cheating jerk head and it appeared that she was just going to take his demands lying down, I was thoroughly annoyed, but I continued reading, and I am super glad I did, because Samantha does get a backbone eventually, and that made me love her.  This series definitely grew on me as I continued reading; it only got better with each book I read.   There is sex in some of the books, but nothing very descriptive or terrible,  I just kept wishing that Sam would meet a great guy, a guy that really deserved her, I am not sure she has found him yet.  Sam has to make some terrible hard decisions and it made me feel for her.  Sam has made some supernatural friends, but I have a bad feeling some of these “friends” are not really what they seem, I will have to read more of the series and see what happens. I would highly recommend the Samantha Moon: Vampire for Hire series to anyone 18 or older, mostly because of the few sex scenes, and maybe a bit for the crudeness of Sam’s ex- husband.  These are quick books to read, and even though the series starts out slow, it really picks up as the series progresses. If you are a fan of paranormal mysteries, please do read theses, there is also just enough romance in them to keep you wanting more. I received this book as an ARC.  I do not get paid to review books; I do so in order to assist you in recognizing books that you might enjoy.

Loved every page of this collection!! The characters are incredible and the stories are fast paced and unique. I could not put the book down and read the entire collection of Samantha Moon books in 4 days. I love to read and am thrilled when I come across stories and characters so well developed that they take on a life all thier own. I am now a J.R. Rain fan and will be waiting eagerly for the next Samantha Moon adventure!

This is absolutely a MUST HAVE! The Samantha Moon series is one of my favorites. JR Rain does an outstanding job with this series. Samantha Moon is your normal, everyday soccer mom until one night while out running, she is attacked. Her life takes a complete turn and now she must deal with balancing life as a vampire and raising her kids as normally as possible. You will feel for Samantha and her struggles. I HIGHLY recommend this book. And I HIGHLY recommend JR Rain's other writings as well. He is fantastic!

I got sucked into these WONDERFUL books through my Kindle Fire. I devoured this series in a matter of days and then discovered J.R. Rains brother who also does great reads. I love reading how Samantha is a mom no matter what, even though she is an immortal, she still has 2 kids and the mortal world has things that need get done. I highly recommend!
