“Dani Harper breathes life into her characters.” —Coffee Time Romance
He roams the moonlit wilderness, his every sense and instinct on high alert. Changeling wolf Connor Macleod and his Pack have never feared anything—until the night human Zoey Tyler barely escapes a rogue werewolf’s vicious attack.
“I would love to read more of the Macleod clan!” —Fallen Angel Reviews
As the full moon approaches, Zoey has no idea of the changes that are coming, and only Connor can show her what she is, and help her master the wildness inside. With her initiation into the Pack just days away and a terrifying predator on the loose, the tentative bonds of trust and tenderness are their only weapons against a force red in tooth, claw. . .and ultimate evil.
“Hot sex, hotter action, and a story that won’t turn you loose. It just doesn’t get any better…” —Kate Douglas

 My Review:
Zoey Taylor has a secret, an ability that she wishes she never had. She moves to a small town away from the big city, running away from her fears in hopes of starting new and to discover herself. Zoey’s transition is smooth at first, obtaining a position as the new editor for the town’s paper. One night, after a cold and icey storm, she gets attacked by a wolf on her way to her car. It isn’t until Zoey faces the creature while fighting for her life on the roof of her car that she realizes this is no ordinary wolf. Out of nowhere, a man comes rushing out of the dark and saves her, moments after the wolf bites her leg.
As she tries to tell the town residents of the attack, no one seems to believe that she was attacked by a wolf, and insist it was just a dog. The only person who doesn’t deny the wolf attack, is the handsome man who saved her that night, Connor Macleod.
Zoey soon discover the reasons why the town’s residents want her to stay quiet about the incident. The town holds an old legend… Zoey doesn’t believe the legend at first, that is, until the next full moon.
Changeling Moon is a brilliant and captivating new paranormal romance series. Dani Harper does a fantastic job in bringing her characters to life through her detailed descriptions and use of relatable emotions. Connor is a caring and handsome veterinarian with special abilities, and who will do everything he can to protect Zoey from being affected by the wolf’s bite. Zoey is a strong, determined, and passionate woman who feels an instant connection to Connor. There is enormous amount of bottled up lust and chemistry between these two characters from the very start, however, their connection may very well be their downfall.
My favorite elements of Changeling Moon are the various abilities presented within the novel. I enjoyed Dani Harper’s description of the Changelings, how their abilities are inherited through generations, however, a regular individual can also become a changeling through a single bite. The method to reverse the transition once a person has been bitten is also intriguing. Changeling Moon is a refreshing take on the usual shapeshifting novels. The beautiful cover captures some elements within the novel that may not be obvious at first, and incorporated into the story very nicely.
This novel is the start of a wonderful series. I recommend this Changeling Moon to those who enjoy Paranormal Romance and shapeshifter tales.
Must read! Highly Recommended!
