Why Shapeshifter Boyfriends are Best - Part of the Vampires VS Werewolves Blog Hop


Vampires or werewolves? That's the question of the day. 

Of course you all KNOW how I'm going to vote... Werewolves make the best boyfriends!

No matter what you call them – shapeshifters, Changelings (as they call themselves in my paranormal romance series) or lycans – werewolves totally ROCK as significant others.

Here’s why –

1. A werewolf boyfriend is always around. He never disappears when the sun comes up and he can take you the beach. He won’t sparkle or combust at the family picnic in July. (He may eat all the food – but then, Aunt Mabel will be thrilled that somebody finally liked her marshmallow salad…)

2. A werewolf boyfriend is strong. We’re talking muscles upon muscles here. You’ll never hear him complain when you ask him to move the piano. And the couch. And the refrigerator. At the same time. At the mall, he’ll carry your bags. And you, when your feet get tired.

3. A werewolf boyfriend is sexy. After all, he has that whole animal magnetism thing going on. And by the way, you don’t have to worry about him running out of steam. He has stamina and then some in the boudoir.

Oh yeah - I'm definitely Team Jacob
4. A werewolf boyfriend is protective. It’s his nature to look out for you and make sure nothing – absolutely nothing – is allowed to distress you. Not only are you safe from muggers, but used car salesmen, religious pamphlet pushers, and groups asking for money will likely never bother you again. Oh, and as for your ex BF – who?

5. A werewolf boyfriend is loyal. After all, real wolves mate for life and so do werewolves. In a roomful of fashion models, movie stars and beauty queens, your BF will be focused on you and only you. Nice, huh?

My shapeshifter series revolves around the Macleods, a family of Changelings. The men are big, strong, sexy, good-looking and intelligent. Able to become wolves at will. And they have tender hearts as big as all outdoors. Check out Changeling Moon and Changeling Dream. What about female shapeshifters, you say? There’s one for you too. Changeling Dawn features an unforgettable human hero. For more info, go to my website at http://www.daniharper.com

  1. I 100% prefer Werewolf boyfriend over Vampire boyfriend. Don't get me wrong Vamps aren't all bad and there are some sexy vamps out there (that don't sparkle!) but Werewolves get my vote over vampires everytime! They're sexy, loyal, protective and not afraid to show the world how much they love you and that you're their woman! Plus because they mate for life, you don't have to worry about them checking out other women or cheating on you ever!

  9. Ok, first of all I like both vampires and werewolves *_*
    But If I have to choose, I'd totally date a werewolf. I like alpha males, wild guys... I'd like to have a passionate and instinctive boyfriend :P

  10. I love vampires - but if I had to choose the better boyfriend it would be shifters, hands down. I'm a sun worshipper (figuratively) and would have a hard time giving of sunbathing, sunlight, daytime, etc. Besides, how could I resist a handsome, protective, WARM, body? Especially if they look like Alcide in TrueBlood?! :)

  11. I have always loved wolves. They are such beautiful, majestic, and just plain magical creatures to me. I can stare at a picture of a wolf for hours. Their eyes are very expressive.
    To imagine one of them can turn into a hot man... or the other way around is just.. wow. ;)

  12. Don't enter me as I've won before. I'm just answering the question :). I love them all but if I could pick it would be a Bengal tier shifter (Being a Leo and a Tiger I'm a cat person at heart).

  13. It is really tough to decide. I a feeling that both are quite a bit the same as far as being focused only on you and having tons of strength. I however need an electric blanket and constant supervision during the daylight hours. So....I have to go with werewolf on this one.

  18. I love your list of why werewolves are better. I read them both and love them both, very hard to pick.

  19. Hard choice. With the great choice of books we can read, both have got my attention. How to choose?.....I know. I need to read more of your books before I decide. Smile.

  35. I find it fascinating how social outcasts from decades ago are now the societies' darlings. When I was a kid I snuck into the loungeroom to watch B-rated Hammer movies. My favourite then of cause was Christopher Lee's Dracula and oh my, had I had a crush on this elderly, distinguished, tux wearing gentleman vampire. Wolfman was the poor relative and the closest I had to the nowadays hot, sexy, muscle-packed, gorgeous hunks with their inner beast was, you guessed it, the beast from "the Beauty and the Beast" (and I am talking the French version in black and white and the earlier Hollywood version in colour, not Disney).
    Today, I am flooded with different kinds of vampires and while the villains still resemble the fiend from the dark most vampires of civil society are clean, shaven, drink only when needed and prefer artificial or voluntarily given (bloodbanks) blood. Some even are able to continue to have body temperature, that wows me everytime, considering that they are dead!
    On the assumption that these creatures exist, I have been thinking lately (probably because we had some meat going off in the fridge) that vampires would have to follow a very rigorous dental hygiene, otherwise they would have a really bad mouth odour. I don't believe in the theory that they have to kill only once a year or not at all or have to drink blood only once in a month. While weres probably tear throats out and therefore suffer from a certain bad mouth odour as well, they are coming pretty close to the female cycle, getting all frisky with the full moon once a month, suffer from too much gorgeousness and shed hair on the couch. And when they sprout such beautiful fur (like Hugh Jackman in "Van Helsing") then I say, bring me the WEREWOLF anytime!!!

  41. It would have to be wolves for me, strong, protective and able to be by your side day and night. Of the vamps that can go out in the sunlight who's got 200 years to wait for your partner to be strong enough to go out in the sunlight so you can both go to the shops?

  47. You do know that according to folklore, vampires could probably bench press a truck, right? Could a werewolf really do that? And in most old stories, vampires can be out in the daylight; a lot of "combustion" stories came from early Hollywood. (The confusion came from tales which said vampires feared the rooster's crow--a lot of so-called "evil" things feared that, and other loud noises, such as bells. And it just so happens rooster's crow at dawn...and any other time they feel like it. Seriously, roosters are awful. Don't keep them as pets.)

    What it boils down to for me is that werewolves tend to possess all the traits I would hate in a partner--aggression, possessiveness, need for conformity--traits some people see as protective and masculine, but are a huge turn-off for me. Loyalty is good; some guy thinking he "owns" me is not.

    1. I've noticed that most novels emphasize an aggressive and possessive Alpha personality in werewolves. I wouldn't like that either. That's why I've written my Changeling stories differently. Oh yes, the guys could still drive you crazy just because they're men, LOL, but the characters retain their humanity while in wolfen form -- something that the ancient "garwolves" did.

  50. Can I be naughty and say both? My first love in books was vampires so I am pretty loyal to them...however I am always freezing and therefore I need a good hot werewolf to keep me warm. Honestly I love just about any kind of paranormal character as long as he is a big bad alpha.
