Publisher's Summary

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. 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 is a reason why he survived five shots to the head.

Good, Light Reading

I am a fan of this series, but it's a bit like a good bowl of popcorn; you enjoy it while you're eating it, and you're certainly sorry when it's done, but if something else exciting comes along, you can easily put it down. That said, I have purchased every book and will continue to do so. The writing is smooth, although I felt something was 'off' on the interpersonal relationships until I discovered JR Rain is a man-- then it made sense. Don't get me srong, he is a good writer and makes a great story and an easy read, but the women's inner voice seems like a man's version of a woman's inner voice if you know what a mean. This is a good combo of supernatural and mystery, reminded me of Dresden Files a little. Overall, a good, solid easy to digest series that I will stick with.

A double entendra that fits!

Would you consider the audio edition of Moon Dance to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version, but the audio version was thoroughly enjoyable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Moon Dance?

When the heroin discovers her origins.

Which character – as performed by Dina Pearlman – was your favorite?

The main character.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

See Moon Dance dance with the Moon!

Any additional comments?

I listened to this story while sitting in rush hour traffic and it was engaging, thrilling, querky, and completely enjoyable. Rush hour rushed by as I learned about the heroin's totally bizzare and complicated life. This is not for someone who wants a very deep and sublevel story with psycological overtones.

Really enjoying this

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would. I really like the main character.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Samantha Moon of course. I love that even though she is a vampire, she is still mostly an everyday house wife with kids to tend to. She is very relatable. Even though she is tough, like all the female characters in the vampire novels, she seems like she could be you if you were in her shoes...

Which scene was your favorite?

When she meets the gang members while out jogging

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when she confronts her husband about his affair. She is very real and it's so easy for me to relate to her. We are the same age, both have kids, etc. So when she feels pain, you feel it...

I didn't read the printed version.

When she lost custody of her children and realized her husband was cheating; and all because she had been attacked and made into a vampire.

Samantha Moon, of course!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Samantha Moon, a single mom, private investigator and oh yeah. vampire!

Good Series.

I listened to the first four books of this series offered here and really enjoyed them. Samantha Moon is trying very hard to live in her world of children, husband and work as normally as she can while dealing vampirism too.

Im really interested in reading even more and am looking forward to seeing if the 5th book of the series Vampire Dawn will be in audio soon.

Yes. Supremely engaging story and characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

They are all interesting

Any additional comments?

Wish they'd combine the stories into longer stories. Too short... if they weren't so interesting I'd probably passed them by.
