I'm really proud of this one -- I think it's the best one yet in my Changeling series! See more on my website at

Dani takes you in depth with her story and characters. As I started reading I found I couldn’t put it down, I just had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next. What I liked best was the little girl Anya and how Dani tied her with the hero and heroine Josh and Kenzie. It was fantastic. The villains have the perfect roll to give this book the action it needed. Dani has created a world that will keep growing with characters. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next to read....more

As you many of you should know (I talk about it nearly non-stop) this is my favorite adult paranormal series. Hands down. I am frequently told that people haven’t heard about it which is like the saddest thing ever cause it is pure writing gold.

The latest book in the series is about Kenzie, the first female changeling in the series. Kenzie has a past with humans and this past clouds her interactions with others. Especially males. This is the first book within the series that the actual age of th...more

Changeling Dawn is filled with so much passion, mystery, action and some heart ache (it even made me cry). It is so far the best in the series. Dani Harper brings so much passion into these characters and they seem so real. Kenzie and Josh have amazing chemistry that grabs your attention as soon as they meet.

I read this in 2 sittings, and I can not wait to read more from Dani. She brings something out in her writing and I can not even explain it. I am hoping one of the twins books will be next!...more
cant say enough about this series!! love it. this book was another great one, romance, adventure,laughs and some sadness all rolled into one...Kenzie is stubborn, Josh is determined and Anya is too cute! love how their relationship has its up and downs. gotta love James and Conners suttle hints about her love life. love the small twist in the end! "Patiently" waiting for the next book in the series to come out!

Kenzie went through a terrible trauma as a child and has never fully recovered. She has now dedicated her life to prevent this from happening to anyone else. But in turn she has isolated herself from everyone but her family. Kenzie is a loner and wants to keep it that way. But fate has other plans.

Josh has suffered his own trauma in his life too. But unlike Kenzie, Josh has tried to face his fears and is willing to move forward. A chance meeting on the side of the road will change ev...more

This is a review of an ARC sent to me by Kensington Publishing that according to the front cover is due to be released January 2012.

In Changeling Dawn, Dani Harper weaves a story line about some paranormal creatures she calls changelings or werewolves.

This is not your everyday werewolf story line. Changeling Dawn has romance, kidnapping, and murder...along with some mystery and intrigue.

The story opens with a very young Kenzie Macleod running for her life away of some hunters when all of a sudde...more

I'm devastated that I've finished this book!!!!! Dani Harper enticed me to read her books through presenting her stories within eye catching covers! Yes the covers got me first... I love wolves and the synopsis to the first book definately had me placing the 3 books on my to read pile...

Eventually I read the first book and truly loved the way Dani smoothly writes her readers into another world... I was engrossed... The second book grabbed me even more, I had loved Connor and Zoey from book 1 but...more
I though I’d prepare my review a little differently this time around. Instead of presenting a detailed overview (which may inadvertently reveal some spoilers), I though perhaps it might be neat to talk about the impression one of the leading characters left with me. Hopefully, through this impression, I will be able to share with you the latest masterpiece in an amazing series written by an author who has quickly risen to the topmost tier of my “Authors to watch for” list!

Witches. Changelings. Faeries. Oh my.
The first thing I noticed about Harper's writing was that it was smooth and vivid.
Characters are believable. You fell in love with them, and they pissed you off. Plot was easy to follow.
She pretty much cranked "Descriptions" up to maximum, then gave it more.
You could feel the passion and emotion fighting through the pages. The romance. The mystery. The suspense.
I would've preferred less relationship, more mystery and suspense, but there was a good balance.

Josh~ "Everything ok?"
Kenzie~ "My brother is just being brotherly again. Connor can't stand that I'm out here. I finally had to promise him that if a man dropped out of the sky, I'd date him."
Josh~ "Really? Bet you didn't count on meeting someone with a helicopter."
She opened her mouth and closed it again, momentarily stunned.
Kenzie~ "Okay, okay, you win. One-just one- date. But that's all." She didn't look at Josh, just stalked off toward the nearest exit. "Do you get all your dates by...more
Changeling Dawn was another brilliant book in this excellent series.
Again well-written, good story full of suspence and adventure, good romance, wonderful charachters... what more could I ask for (except for maybe more books!)

I really hope I'll get to read more very soon about the MacLeods and their entourage. Please, Dani Harper, hurry with the next book!
Decent werewolf story, but loses points because I hate when a strong female protagonist turns into an idiot 2/3 of the way through a story. To be fair to the author, she did foreshadow Kenzie's idiocy so it wasn't completely out of left field.

This was a ARC sent to me, and I loved it. Looking forward to reading more by this Author.
This is the third book in the Macleod Changeling series. It can be read on it's own as a stand-alone. However, I suggest you get the first two books, Changeling Moon and Changeling Dream because they all rock. This one rocks as well, and I swear Dani has me as a fan. I just want to know if she might have a secret knowledge of these changelings and could she introduce me to one... especially if it is a Macleod? ;)

Ah, but back to this book. In this book we become very familiar with Mackenzie (Kenz...more
Paranormal Haven
Kenzie is the youngest member of the Macleod family. All her sibling have always pestered her about her love of solitude, but the pestering became more imposing once her two oldest brothers found there true mates. They are now so happy, and Kenzie is happy for them, but she knew this is not the life she had planned for herself. She needed to finish her research. Kenzie was researching the history of Changelings; she wanted to prove that they were not so different from humans. She was always in f...more
My Thoughts:
Dani Harper is a new author for me, and I am so very glad I found her.
The covers for her books really drew me to them and once I read the blurbs I was drawn in even farther. So I tried winning one of her books and when that didn't pan out I decided to email Dani, I wanted to read and review her books so bad. Talking to Dani is such a pleasure and right away she agreed to let me review for her. I received in the mail an autographed copy of Changeling Dawn, along with all the covers fo...more
Kenzie Macleod is a changeling and is having nightmares. She keeps having flashbacks to Scotland, where she was born. She lives among humans but doesn’t trust them. After all, they are the reason her people were all but exterminated in Scotland and England. She is looking for the Athabasca Fish Camp when she meets Josh Talarkoteen, a fish and game warden.

Kenzie finds herself thinking about Josh a lot. She can’t remember his last name but she can’t forget anything else about him. She also can’t f...more

I'd like to thank Moonlight Gleam for these one! I won a book of my choice from her and requested Dani's book! I loved Kenzie and have been dying to hear from the youngest Macleod but I have to say Josh stole the show for me! More power to Kenzie resisting him as long as she did! I wouldn't have been able to resist him for a second! I laughed so much at his continuing to ask her out, not taking no for an answer and threatening to call her brother Connor! Loved how he eventually blackmailed her i...more
This series has grabbed me from the very beginning. Changeling Dawn is book three. I’m not sure what it is; the wolves, the history of the changelings, the intriguing storylines, the feeling of family or even that the author is from Alaska. I’m not sure, but Ms. Harper has sunk her claws in me and won’t let go!

Kenzie Macleod is a Changeling. It is all she has ever known. During her long life, she has lived in fear though. As a child she had a life altering event and to this day, it still forms h...more

I love to stumble upon a book, with no expectations and be blown away by its storyline. Changeling Dawn did ''Bring It On''! Right into my face! I never suspected to find a great story, characters and a stunning background plot!

First of all, Alaska is probably one of the most beautiful places in the world. And the author, Dani Harper, did a great job with the description of the environment/ambiance/atmosphere of her characters: we can almost see, smell and even touch that place through her writ...more

Dani Harper's latest, CHANGELING DAWN, is a spellbinding tale paranormal readers will love. Fans of the Macloed series will be glad to know the series is still going strong with the next incredible installment.

Kenzie Macleod knows the importance of family, but she also knows the value of working alone. That's why despite her ever growing family, she is heading to Alaska to start her next archaeological dig on her own. On the way, she meets Fish and Game office Josh Talarkoteen. Kenzie is doing h...more

First, let me start off by saying that the cover alone drew me to this book. I mean it’s absolutely gorgeous. Second, I’d like to say that Dani Harper is one of the most talented paranormal authors I’ve had the chance to come across. I’ve not read the first two books in the Changeling series, but I will most definitely be going back and adding them to my wishlist. Her ability to take the paranormal...more

The Changeling series by Ms. Harper is starting to come close to a perfect PNR series for me. I adore the simplicity of the world, the family atmosphere, and the storylines on each book are always interesting. This mixed in with just the right characters, always likeable, and you have a hit!

Changeling Dawn was no different. In continuing to follow the Macleod family, this time is Kenzie's turn. Due to being hunted when she was a child she's alw...more

Well let me start by saying this is not normally a book I would read. In fact this is the first werewolf book I have ever picked up. I don’t know why but I just don’t do werewolf books. However, I was glad I did read this book. I actually enjoyed it. Both the main characters and sub ones had interesting roles in this book.

I liked that this book was more in a mystery kind of way rather than a love story, yes the romance was there but done with a bit of a spin. The main focus was on the mystery a...more

book 3 in the werewolf or Changeling series. I wasn't sure if I would like this because book 2 wasn't as good as the first. But I did. Anthropoligist Kenzie is in Alaska on a dig. She meets a native whose clan can recognize auras. This had an enough plot twists and character development to redeem my opinion of the series. Not 5 stars because the sex scenes contain the same phrase in each of the 3 books- using the word tailbone. After 3 repetitions it loses its effectiveness. Also the point of vi...more
The third book in the Changeling series, it worked well as a stand alone. (I do have book 1 to read but you know me, always reading out of order. :D) I liked Kenzie, the heroine. Emotionally stunted from a traumatic childhood event, she holds a grudge and has blind spots where humans are concerned. Josh, our hero, gently breaks down her defenses, and helps her grow emotionally.

The villain was obvious and not very well developed but I am curious about IBC, a corporation that knows too much about...more

RT Book Reviews 4 1/2* My review, 4*. I docked it a 1/2* because it was a little slow to start.

Kenzie is a Changeling archeologist on a dig in Alaska. Josh is a human Dept. of Fish and Game officer. A lone wolf cub Changeling shows up at Kenzie's dig site and they search for its mother. But there's more danger to finding the missing mother than they bargained for. Along the way, both Kenzie and Josh have to deal with their own PTSD, and Kenzie has to get over her mistrust of humans.

For a romance novel this actually has a pretty good story. I didn't realize this was the third in a series and I'm going to have to go back and read the first two.

There isn't anything Dani Harper likes better than exploring the supernatural - unless it's writing sizzling and suspenseful romance and fantasy. Of course, all of her stories have at least one foot in the netherworld!

“Everything ok?"
"My brother is just being brotherly again. Connor can't stand that I'm out here. I finally had to promise him that if a man dropped out of the sky, I'd date him."
"Really? Bet you didn't count on meeting someone with a helicopter."

“Okay, okay, you win. One-just one- date. But that's all." She didn't look at Josh, just stalked off toward the nearest exit. "Do you get all your dates by blackmail?"
"Nope," he said cheerily as he easily kept pace with her. "Only the ones that matter”
