Now running for their lives, Sam and company are about to come face-to-face with the greatest archaeological discovery of all time….
**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!”
“I enjoyed MOON DANCE 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! She really doesn’t deserve to be frozen out of her marriage, yet his attitude is understandable. In the course of the novel she solves the mystery she is tackling for a client, and finds a new romantic interest. What makes it special are her character and nature. I sure wouldn’t have kicked her out of bed. I recommend it as light reading, odd as that may sound.”
“MOON DANCE is absolutely brilliant!”
“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.”
“Impossible to put down. J.R. Rain’s MOON DANCE is a fabulous urban fantasy.”
“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. Rain does an amazing job of blending suspense, mystery and humor in this fantastic debut novel destined for the keeper shelf.”
“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. Thank you for your talent.”
