Special three day event with paranormal romance author Dani Harper (DAY 3)

Never Judge a Man by his Species…

That’s the premise behind my latest novel, CHANGELING DAWN, the third in my new shapeshifter series.  Tomorrow, December 27th, is Release Day!  WOO HOO!  I confess, I’m so excited, I don’t know how I’ll sleep tonight!  I’ve been looking forward sharing this book with my readers ever since I wrote “The End”. I feel it’s my best story yet!

It’s been a banner year for werewolves at my house. Or, as my characters prefer to call themselves, Changelings. Changeling Moon was the first in the series in May, followed by Changeling Dream in June. Readers were introduced to the Macleod family of shapeshifters. And if you’ve been following Bitten By Paranormal Romance for the past couple of days, you’ve gotten to hear from three of the Macleod brothers, Connor, James and Culley. In CHANGELING DAWN, you’ll finally hear from one of their sisters, as well as a hero that really stole my heart as I got to know him!



Shadow and moonlight merge beneath her bare feet, the forest floor blurring as she flees the dogs and torches. Werewolf, monster -- those are the names given her kindby the humans who hate them.


Kenzie Macleod has spent her whole life hiding what she is, and she’s not about to open up to any man, even one as powerfully attractive as wildlife expert Josh Talarkoteen. But legend says that a Changeling cannot escape the call of her true mate, even in the wilderness of backcountry Alaska.


An isolated archeological site, a terrified Changeling cub, a secretive research center -- as Kenzie and Josh face the ultimate betrayal, his obsidian eyes promise untold pleasure and hint at dark secrets of his own . . .


RT REVIEWS (Romantic Times) gave CHANGELING DAWN a wonderful 4 1/2 stars!  WOOT!

"This third entry in the Macleod werewolf family saga is the best one yet. Harper skillfully builds characters and situations that evoke empathy for the good citizens of both the human and shapeshifter species. The drama of the tracking and kidnapping of a young changeling child makes for page-turning suspense, while the main characters’ PTSD from childhood trauma and the Afghan war give them a great motive for their intense determination to rescue the little one.”

Here’s just a little light teaser (kind of like an appetizer!):

"I have no intention of shopping for lingerie with you."
"Well, I'm not keen on being seen in that department either. Unless of course, I get to pick out stuff that would look good on you—"
"Then I'll wait in the food court with the rest of the banished males."

It’s been three days and three posts. Thanks to Bitten by Paranormal Romance for letting me run wild here, and thanks to my readers for hanging in there with me!
Of course, I’ve left the BEST giveaway for last.  Leave a comment, telling me why you like werewolves, and you’ll be entered to win a signed copy of Changeling Dawn!  Draw closes Dec. 31st.
Sincerely, Dani Harper


  1. I love werewoves because they are loyal and having only one mate for life is so wonderful
    they are really strong but can be so gentle with the pups and such
    They are the best

    thanks you for this giveaway


  2. What isn't to like. Loyalty and devotion being #1. They are fierce protectors of their loved ones and yes mating for life once makes it so darn hard not to relate and want one of my own. lol Great stamina also. :)
    Hope everyone one had a Happy Holiday. Congrats on the release tomorrow Dani. Wishing you HUGE sales. :)

  3. Wolves are beautiful, protective, loyal to each other. The shifter stories always include these characteristics plus so much more. The heroes tend to be alpha males, they are strong and protective & loyal to their mates and packs.

  5. I love werewolves because the alpha males are so damn sexy, protective, man-ho's until they find their soul mates, and then they are devoted forever to them - they will protect their pack with unending devotion.

  10. I love werewolves because of their alpha behavior with a LOT of humor & sexyness, along with their loyalty. The hawtness factor is there too with the long, silky hair, I love hair that I can run my fingers through.

  11. I love werewolves because they are all for family, loyal, protective and fierce yet gentle. They are totally devoted their mates, warm and lovable, and dare I say cuddly (I know most of them don't want to be thought of that way though).

  12. There is something about werewolves that make them so easy to see them as shifters..they run in a pack, they stick together like a close family and work together. They are also a beautiful creature.
    thanks for the great giveaway.

  17. I love werewolves because they are sexy, protective, and when you're their mate they love you like you are the air they breathe. So cool.

  18. I love the "good" werewolves. I love their loyalty, protectiveness, and strength. They are the ultimate fantasy. Thank you once again for the sharing and fun. Congratulations on the release tomorrow and my your have every success:)


  19. What's not to love about werewolves? I love that they mate for life. It is wonderful that they alway put family/pack first, nothing is more important. How great is that. It also doesn't hurt that it appears that all werewolves are very attractive and super sexy. It is not one quality that is the reason for my werewolf love, but all of the main qualities put together! Love, loyalty, faithfulness, devotion, strength, honor, possessiveness, hard work, determination, warmth, good looks, and last but not least to their mate their scent. I love this series and have the other two books. I can't wait to read this one and recommend reading Changeling Moon to anyone who hasn't already done so.

  20. LOVED the appetizer thank you!! Such a tease!!


  21. I like werewolves because of their pure connection to nature.

  22. I'm not really sure other than they tend to be strong, sexy, alphas and they stick with their mate after they find her.

  23. I love Werewolves becaue they have family loyalty and they are strong, sexy protectors of those they love :D

  24. I like werewolves because, well I always have! I really am not sure why, ever since I was really little I've liked werewolves. I think the idea of being able to change into a wolf (my favorite animal) has something to do with it!

  25. I like werewolves (shifters) because they have a way to let their inner animal out. During the times they are wolves they are closer to living by their instincts instead of second guessing themselves.

  26. I like werewolves because they are interesting. They teach me something new about their mating and pack traits. They are loyal, protective creatures and that makes them great heroes.


  27. i tend to like just about any type of shifters.. werewolves, cats, dragons.. i dont know why really.. they almost seem to be closer to nature.. and i love how they have two natures sometimes...

  28. I LOVE them because they are hot, sexy, loyal, smart, protective, ALPHA, loving, and they mate for life. Oh and that growling thing they do with their voice...mmmm! What else could you ask for??

  29. I love them because wolves are beautiful creatures!! I can't wait to read this one, the other two in this series is awesome!!
