Boxed set of the first four #1 bestselling "Vampire for Hire" mystery novels, starring Samantha Moon - mother, wife, private investigator... vampire. (Plus the Christmas Moon novella and three bonus novels!)

MOON DANCE (Vampire for Hire #1)

The thrilling first novel in Amazon's #1 bestselling supernatural mystery series. For fans of Sookie Stackhouse, Harry Dresden and Anita Blake, Moon Dance heralds the arrival of America's favorite new vampire detective.

Amazon Top 100 Bestseller - for over one year!

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 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.



VAMPIRE MOON (Vampire for Hire #2)

Samantha 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 (Vampire for Hire #3)

Samantha 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, Sam 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 (Vampire for Hire #4)

Samantha 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.



CHRISTMAS MOON (Vampire for Hire #4.5)

Now with Christmas just around the corner, Samantha finds herself taking on a very strange case. A mysterious family treasure has been stolen, something priceless that's been passed down through the generations, something buried in secrets.

About J.R. Rain

I'm an ex-private investigator now writing full-time in the Pacific Northwest, where I live in a small house on a small island with my small dog, Sadie, who has more energy than Robin Williams.

As a kid I was always making stuff: skates, skateboards, skimboards, skis, sleds, clothing, furniture, wood carvings, Easter baskets, comic books, you name it. I was the mother of all nerds. Anyway, I think I was searching for the one thing I wanted to keep on making for the rest of my life. Then one day I discovered Choose Your Own Adventure books. Remember those? You as the reader were asked to make choices for the characters. Choose Your Own Adventures were a lot of fun and I just had to make my own. And so I did, writing three of them, and I've been hooked on writing ever since. (Just think, I could have been hooked on making Easter baskets.)

In high school, I was a fine balance of jock and nerd. I played football and baseball and somehow managed to write five complete novels. So how was I able to write so much and play sports and study at the same time? Easy. No girlfriend. In fact, I didn't kiss a girl until I was in college!

In college, I still managed to write two books and over 80 short stories. (Even with all the kissing.) Eventually, I graduated with a perfectly useless degree in anthropology, got married two weeks later, and shortly thereafter started my career as an insurance claims investigator. I've made better choices.

I would spend the next four years researching and writing my first adventure novel, THE LOST ARK. At the age of 28, I landed one of the biggest agents in Hollywood.

Welcome to Hollyweird. I discovered that I had a natural knack for writing screenplays. (Go figure.) For the next two years I worked exclusively with Paramount Pictures and Alphaville Productions developing various movie and TV projects. Some things worked out; most didn't. I learned much and I'm thankful for the experience.

Ultimately, I realized I had strayed far from my true love: writing novels (but never very far from my other true love: donuts). And so, with a little bit of money in the bank and some time on my hands (okay, fine, I got fired from my insurance job), I moved to Carlsbad and wrote three books: DARK HORSE, MOON DANCE, and CURSED.

Being married to a dreamer is tough. Being married to a dreamer and a writer is damn near impossible. Yup, you guessed it, after seven tough years my wife was gone, baby, gone.

Not to worry. I eventually met another girl (poor thing), and together we moved up to Seattle. Things turned ugly fast. I lost my job, my car, my money, the girl, went bankrupt, and yet somehow wrote THE MUMMY CASE in a freezing cold basement in the middle of a rainy winter, unemployed and stealing food (usually donuts) from local grocery stores.

Like the prodigal son, I eventually moved back home to southern California, where I got a new job, got my private investigator's license, got a new movie agent, moved to Hollywood and was fortunate enough to have my first novel published in November 2005 by Mundania Press.

In 2006, I wrote ELVIS HAS NOT LEFT THE BUILDING, and in 2007, I moved up to Oregon where I eventually became a vegetarian (for moral reasons), and wrote the first draft of my ghost story, THE BODY DEPARTED. In 2008, I moved back to southern California to help with my sick father.

Now in 2009, you guessed it, I'm back up in the Pacific Northwest, living on a small island in a small home with my small doggie. It's a simple, peaceful life...a life filled with writing, hiking, and Beggin' Strips.

(Remember: life is too short to work at a job you don't love. So follow your dreams, my friends, even if it means living on a faraway island in the back of beyond....)

As you can see, I've come far from those days of stealing donuts. Full circle.
