Product Description

Product Description

Geneva “Neva” Ross doesn’t want to die. But now that she’s been turned into a werewolf against her will, she’ll do anything to protect her family and friends…even if that means taking her own life.

After witnessing Neva’s leap from a high ledge, Travis Williamson—a Changeling with a dark past—uses his powers to save her life. He feels a connection to the strong-willed woman whose eyes flash that familiar Changeling green. While Neva is hospitalized, Travis risks everything to kidnap her, knowing the approaching full moon will put everyone in jeopardy.

Bickering constantly to hide their growing attraction, Travis and Neva run from the authorities…and from Neva’s sinister sire, Meredith de la Ronde. Meredith delights in creating new shape-shifters and compelling them to do her dark bidding; now Neva must join Meredith’s murderous wolf pack…or die.

Intensely suspenseful with deliciously sexy twists, this paranormal romance—the first in the Dark Wolf Series—intertwines sensual passion with an epic, thrilling battle between good and evil.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good bite! 15 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
First Bite is for me my first book by this author and certainly not my last. It's a paranormal tale about werewolves/changelings and magic. This is a very good introduction to what should be a very good series if this book is a taster of what's to come.
Neva has unwillingly been bitten by Meredith and is about to transform for the first time into a werewolf. She has seen first hand how dangerous werewolves can be especially those led by the thoroughly evil Meredith and is determined that she will not become a killing machine. Determined to end her life she jumps off a cliff but is seen by Travis - a natural born changeling/werewolf- and he tries to save her. Terrified of what she's become Neva unwillingly goes with Travis as he tries to teach her that she doesn't have to be a killer in order to survive. With her first change imminent it's important that she learn to trust Travis and learn from him.
Travis is a lone wolf and yet he feels strangely compelled to remain with Neva but danger is stalking the young couple. Meredith the woman who cruelly bit the unwilling Neva is following them. Determined to get Neva back in her clutches so she can perform a dark spell and consolidate her powers. Trying to remain hidden from her Neva and Travis will be in more danger then they can ever imagine.
I love books like this. An alpha hero with a heart of gold and a snarky heroine who stands up for herself. This book is chock full of humour and the writing flows really well. Interesting supporting characters and a villainess who is truly evil.
Although the book started with instant action I felt that the second half was for me when the writer truly got into her stride. It was a good mix of both suspense and romance but for me the humour was what made this a good read. I sincerely hope that there will be more books about these characters as I'd like to know what happens next and surely that's a testament to how interesting this story was. Well done Ms. Harper .

Were tales abound, and I wasn't expecting anything too much of this one, and so ended up pleasantly surprised with the reveals in the tale, with the storyline and with the element of dark magic. The tale wasn't written around sex, or vice versa, which was refreshing, and even though it ended on a cliffhanger, I totally didn't mind and found myself looking forward to the next.

IMHO, female baddies can be so much more bad-butt than male buddies, and this one was particularly nasty and vicious. I liked that the female lead was noble, in total contrast to the baddie, and that she was still learning about her new self and her abilities as the tale ended. The romance certainly wasn't the most prominent element of the tale, but the leads felt solid and that they had a future together. There are a few more characters who were introduced and who will no doubt feature in future tales, but this wasn't their tale; dare I hope for a MM were romance in the next?

Overall, a good introduction to this series, and its ordinariness drew me in. I will certainly be reading the next in the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh, it's Okay 17 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Changed violently against her will, Neva Ross has no wish to become a werewolf. Especially not one under the iron rule of the murderous Meredith de la Rond. Neva is so determined to escape, in fact, that she'd rather die than go wolf.

So when Travis Willamson saves her from a suicide attempt, she's not exactly grateful.

Travis is soon regretting the impulse too, but his conscience - and his own inner Changeling wolf - won't let him walk away. Neva needs help, and it seems that it's up to him to provide it.

Danger, romance and the call of the wild are all present in this standard slice of shape shifter fare. Neva is suspicious, confused and angry, Travis is a scowly lone wolf, but both are deep-down good and decent people. Meredith, meanwhile, is vicious, violent and unpleasantly unstable, leaving the Good vs. Evil battle lines clearly marked.

The story is okay, the characters are all right and I did sympathise with Travis' irritation at Neva. Yes, she had good reasons for her mistrust at the beginning, but it drags and gets a bit dull to read. There were also a few continuity issues - such as Neva's retelling of how she was changed, compared to an earlier dream sequence - and I also didn't understand how some characters could drive for days and then run for their lives, only for other characters to stumble across them without much apparent effort. Then there was Neva's whole revelation to Travis about Meredith, which left me tempted to abandon the book for good.

Which would have been a shame, because after the sudden - and quite frankly at that point baffling - explosion of chemistry between the two of them, the story does get better. Less irritating, certainly, as the action picks up and the peril increases. By the end it's quite good.

However, in a genre packed with offerings, I found this story just a little too bland and forgettable. It's an okay read, but I doubt I'll return for more.

FIRST BITE is the first instalment in Dani Harper's new paranormal romance series-Dark Wolf and if you are a fan of Dani's writing you will definitely see similarities and comparisons with her paranormal Changeling series including the use of the term `changeling'.

The premise focuses on Neva Ross as she is about to undergo her first change. On the run from her sire, Neva is determined to end her life before she has had the chance to destroy so many others. Believing that all wolf shifters are werewolves and evil, Neva hopes to destroy the very thing that she is about to become. But life takes a funny turn when wolf changeling Travis Williamson stumbles upon Neva as she attempts to end it all. What ensues is an epic push and pull between Neva and Travis-both human and wolf.

The relationship between Neva and Travis is one born out of necessity for Neva but out of sympathy for Travis. Neva pushes Travis away at every opportunity but in the end, her inner wolf knows that without Travis they would probably both be dead.

The storyline finds Neva and Travis on the run hoping to elude the sire who wants Neva above all else. And when Travis finds himself imprisoned by Neva's sire, it takes everything Neva has to rescue the man who would one day be her mate.

First Bite is a story about new beginnings; dark magic; power and control; love and sacrifice. There are moments when you wonder why Travis endures the sarcasm and negative attitude from the woman whom he has helped at every step of the way, but in the end, it will be Neva's wolf that knows that Travis is her mate, before the human mind has had time to comprehend.

Dani introduces several secondary characters including the `b*tch queen' as she is called.
