"I love this!" -Piers Anthony

"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

USA TODAY bestselling series. #1 Bestseller in Paranormal Romance, Private Investigators, Female Sleuths, Gothic Romance, and Contemporary Fantasy.


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 longtime for a vampire.

In Moon Dance, 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. Now 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. But as the case unfolds, Samantha discovers Kingsley isn't exactly what he appears to be; after all, there's a reason why he survived five shots to the head.

HASH(0x9a6415c4) out of 5 stars A surprsingly great book April 29 2010
By AHA64 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have never heard of this publisher, and a quick search didn't show a web presence, so I was leery about buying this book given the amount of poorly edited, terrible stories I've read by innocently purchasing 'self published' Kindle books.
I am so, so glad I decided to give this author a go. This is definitely the gem among the chaff.
This book is GREAT. Very 'human', if a story about a vampire can be human. Angst, foibles, the-world-is-still-screwed-up even though (and sometimes because) the protagonist is a vampire. Readers who like Charlaine Harris' OTHER series (not the one made into a TV series, but her other work) will adore this heroine. Feisty, confused and doing her damnedest to make the best of a horrible situation.
The only thing I didn't like was a too neatly tied up plot line (had to do with the vamp who turned her).
I hope the writer continues the story line in future books. I will definitely be keeping an eye out!

HASH(0x9a6419f0) out of 5 stars At least it's not expensive. March 14 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The best thing I can say about this is that for a self-published book it's fairly well edited. The plot is okay, but the writing isn't anything spectacular. At times it's clunky, with the same phrases repeated several times -- often on the same page. We get it. She's a vampire. She's apparently been a vampire for several years. It doesn't need to be stated on every single page. It's also another case where someone's been a vampire for years but is just now starting to realize this means she's got "abilities" she didn't know she had?

The character names are laughable. The story was predictable. None of the characters are particularly likeable. Finishing this book felt like a chore.

HASH(0x9a641a44) out of 5 stars Moon Dance by J.R. Rain April 23 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Lately, I had been thinking that vampire stories were overdone. I have my favorite authors in the genre and honestly wasn't looking for anymore. It seems that authors don't want to write about normal people anymore. The stories all seem to have vampires, witches, wizards, and zombies in them. I was looking for an author that wrote normal stories not paranormal. Spies, police officers, detectives, these were the heroes that I was looking for.

I first ran across J.R. Rain's work on myspace. I had a friend request waiting in my inbox. I accepted and went to look up his work. Wow, what an impressive list of reviewers, what could my thoughts possibly mean after so many great authors have said such positive things about his work.

While I was debating which book to start with for our book club I got the opportunity to read Moon Dance. I have never been overly impressed with first person fiction, with a few notable exceptions. Maybe, because I never felt like I could become the character.

Right there Mr.Rain's story had two strikes against it. Strike One - Main character is a vampire (paranormal). Ball One - Detective. Strike Two - First Person narration. The count was 2-1 and I was waiting for that third strike to fly directly over the plate and pound into the catchers mitt, instead Mr. Rain's story connected directly with the ball (my mind) and knocked it out of the park.

Mr. Rain managed to make me fall so far into the character that I couldn't put the story down once I started reading.

HASH(0x9a641d8c) out of 5 stars I want my 99 cents back April 28 2011
By Squidalina - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have to say that I'm really shocked by all the four and five star reviews of this book. It was one of the worst pieces of writing I have ever encountered. I mean truly, embarrassingly bad. Not only was there no character development, no conflict, no emotion, but the characters were so broad and clichéd, they could have been written by a grade-schooler. I fact, as a teacher, I would flunk a kid if they showed me this. Yes, we know all cops like donuts, but can you think of anything else cops like that hasn't been said a thousand times? You say men like big breasts? Shocking! It can't be true! The lack of imagination boggles the mind.

I also have to assume that the author is male because this is an insultingly bad attempt at the female perspective. There was not one element of Samantha Moon that felt true. This is a character who is supposedly going through a terrible crisis and is distracted by a bartender's "buns". Yes, buns. And no, it's not set in Akron, Ohio, circa 1988. This is a character that thinks "down girl" to herself (over and over), because she can barely resist the "hunky-ness" of every man she meets, including the old cop with a "real man's" belly. In fact, all the men are "real men", except for the cop's embarrassingly gay son. Ugh. Just ugh.

The best thing I can say about this book is that there were fewer typos than I would have expected.

HASH(0x9a641fd8) out of 5 stars Entertaining Jan. 24 2011
By Matthew T. Mccarthy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An entertaining book, but it's hardly a literary masterpiece. It cost $.99 to get it for my Kindle so I took a chance and I did enjoy it and the second book in the series, but I never felt like I was drawn into the story. As long as future books in the series remain below $4.00 I'll probably keep reading.

If you're looking to be immersed in the story, plot twists, or like gripping novels with good detail, this is not a series for you though. The both books in the series (so far) are short on detail, easy to predict, and told in a manner more like your girlfriend sharing her day with you then anything else. About what you'd expect from a book that costs less then $5.00 these days, but if you're looking for a light read they are enjoyable.
