Blurb: 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 in VAMPIRE MOON, sequel to MOON DANCE, private investigator Samantha Moon 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.

   Another enjoyable book by J.R. Rain! Definitely not your usual paranormal novel, it's a no holds barred view of what becoming vampire might actually entail. It has a grittier feel to it than most and the whole series reminds me somewhat of an old black & white detective movie...only better!
   In this book we see Sam trying to find herself after a failed marriage and trying to get to see her kids. You can feel her despair and helplessness at losing her children to her ex, and his reluctance to allow her to visit them is maddening. Through it all she is trying to bring down a crime lord and protect a woman from her ex-husbands death threats. Not to mention dealing with the fact that Kinsley's job as a defense attorney is causing friction in their relationship and Fang wants to finally meet face to face.
   There is a lot of emotion in this book, not all of it happy, but it does make you feel what Samantha is going through. The author does a good job of making Sam feel realistic and her problems will make you feel for her.
   It was a really good read, and even though it has a little bit of a cliffhanger, most everything is resolved happily by the end. I finished it in a day and immediately started the next book!
