About the series:

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.

I read the JR Rain vampire for hire series and like them very much but I am confused about the Samantha Moon series or shorts. Should they be read in conjunction with the Vamoire for hire series and if so in what order should the shorts they be read ?
thank you

I love the Moon Dance series I think Samantha is very funny I and cannot put my kindle down. AMAZING!!!!

your list is missing
Dark Side of the Moon and Vampire Requiem
and from what I saw J.R. Rain post on FB (unless it was a typo on his behalf) you may have Vampire Gold & Blue Moon swapped in the order.

Thanks Meg! I updated the list. :D
