**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, 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 Taking Back Tara

"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 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 The Vampires' Last Lover

"J.R. Rain's Samantha Moon is one of the most refreshing new characters I have come across in quite some time."
—H.T. NIGHT, author of Vampire Love Story and The Werewolf Whisperer

Editorial Reviews

Blurb - Piers Anthony
Moon Dance, by J.R. Rain, is a vampire detective novel. Neither of those are my genres; I've never had much interest in vampires or detectives. Yet I enjoyed this immensely; it was the most fun novel of this present collection. 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. I love this!

    Great book for those that need time away

    The short stories in this book were great even though there were a few that belonged to other series you can read them and not be lost as to what was happening. These short stories are a great introduction to the writers within and gives you a little bite of their wonderful series. After reading these stories I immediately went and bought all the books that went with the series they belonged too. I enjoyed this read as it gave me an escape from reality for a time into worlds were everyone has problems and some of them are even worse than mine.

    Disgusting

    The short stories were not well developed and had plot holes, but the worse parts were the actual stories themselves. The one called The Silo read like a story written by a horny middle school virgen boy fantasizing about a sexualexperience he can only imagine. Plot spoiler: It's about an old man who dreams about a 'fire woman'. Eventually he is directed by another man, who is also having wet dreams about 'fire woman' to go to a farm to wait to meet her in person. As she descends from the sky she lowers herself onto a silo which she humps. Meanwhile the old man, who heard a voice telling him to remove his clothes & lower himself to the ground by the silo experiences the greatest orgasm of his life. The description of the condition of the silo afterward is truly gross. Sex with a silo. Really?!? I won't waste my money on another of these books. Even free would be too much becase it would cost me time to read it.

    A good short story

    It's a good short story. If you have read the series then it a good fix till the next full book. If your new to this series it's a good teaser/taste of the series. I'm hooked to the Moon series and am waiting for the next full book.
