Even in Grundy, Alaska, it's unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem. Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham, who has been openly critical of Mo's ability to adapt to life in Alaska, has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble.

For Cooper, an Alpha in self-imposed exile from his dysfunctional pack, it's love at first sniff when it comes to Mo. But Cooper has an even more pressing concern on his mind. Several people around Grundy have been the victims of wolf attacks, and since Cooper has no memory of what he gets up to while in werewolf form, he's worried that he might be the violent canine in question.

If a wolf cries wolf, it makes sense to listen, yet Mo is convinced that Cooper is not the culprit. Except if he's not responsible, then who is? And when a werewolf falls head over haunches in love with you, what are you supposed to do anyway? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated. . . .  -Goodreads

My Thoughts

Molly Harper strikes Paranormal Romance gold of the furry variety with her latest offering, the first book of the Naked Werewolf series.
Mo Wenstein is a self assured albeit, quirky heroine whose quick wit, anti-Southern southerness, and loveable snarkiness make her the perfect match for his wolfy-hottness, Cooper Graham.
Cooper offers just the right amount of rugged charm, protectiveness, reluctant romantic, and howlingly sexy animal magnetism to make him the ultimate in fantasy lover material.  Add to that the small town coziness and salt of the earth quirk of Grundy Alaska, and you have a first rate heart fluttering comedic romance like no other.  
As if all the previous reasons for loving this book were not enough to send you in a mad dash to the nearest bookstore; there is also mystery.
Yep, you heard right!
 The people of Grundy are being attacked and Cooper is convinced that he is the culprit.
See...a great read!
If you want a book that has enough comedy to make you LOL, enough romance to make you OMG, and enough mystery and plot twists to make you WTF?  This is definitely the book for you.

Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stone’s throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valley’s pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt.

What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg. Maggie just can’t seem to convince Nick to leave . . . and even worse, she can’t convince herself to stay away from him. Cross-species dating is problem enough for a harried alpha female, but on top of that, a rival group of werewolves is trying to move into the valley. With interpack war threatening, Maggie can’t afford to be distracted.

Combining romance and a career can be tough for anyone; for a werewolf in love with a human, it may be disastrous. . . .-Goodeads

My Thoughts

It's a girl!
Molly Harper journeys once again into the wilds and weres of the Great White North with The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf.  This time the star of the show is first ever female alpha, and general pain in the butt, Maggie Graham.
A self proclaimed bacholorette, with more than enough to handle with her crash course in pack management.  Maggie is a little less than thrilled to learn that there be a stranger a lurkin' in her woods.  A very yummy smelling stranger; according to her wolven sniffer.  But, an outsider nonetheless.
The rustic romance and howling hi jinx that readers were introduced to in How To Flirt With a Naked Werewolf continues in The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf.  Keeping it in the family, Molly Harper allows readers to get up close and personal with the feisty female fur-ball, and by extension delve further into pack life in the valley.
Who knew that Maggie's ball busting ways and wild child heart could be tamed by the mild mannered, bespectacled, uber brain with Norse-god good looks.
Nothing about Maggie's existence has ever been easy, and watching her attempt to balance her attraction to the good doctor, with her new found duties to the pack; while attempting to keep her hairy heritage a secret, is nothing less than fantasy-tastic romantic fun of the highest order.
Just in case you were wondering.
All of you Cooper and Mo fans will not be disappointed.  The delicious dynamic duo and their pretty little plus one make an appearance or two this time around as well.

Caleb Graham is a werewolf by nature, a tracker by profession. He uses his “extra gifts” to find people, and not always in the most legal or ethical manner. He doesn’t care what they’ve done, or who wants them found, as long as his considerable fee is paid. He likes his life simple and uncomplicated.

Anna Moder, former physician to Caleb’s pack, happens across Caleb during a particularly violent “negotiation” that has left him bloodied and unconscious. She helps him, despite the fact that he’s cost her a car, so he insists that she stay with him on the road for a while. As they grow closer, Anna looks past the gruff exterior and and the questionable job to thoroughly decent werewolf underneath.

Anna – who is careful to edit her involvement with Caleb’s pack from their conversations – doesn’t talk about why a nice girl wants to live in the middle of frozen nowhere, but she’s obviously on the run from something. When Anna’s past collides with Caleb’s current assignment from one of his sleazier contacts, Caleb finally has to make a choice—protect his job…or his potential mate?  -Goodreads

My Thoughts

The third installment of the Naked Werewolf series, finds readers on the run with ex-valley doctor, Anna Moder.  With a dangerous secret from her past hounding her every step; Anna's chance meeting with the unfortunate end of her car and the beginning of an unlikely friendship/partnership with a certain wolfy rendition of Dawg The Bounty Hunter, spells pure Chick-Lit bliss.
While it is true that the bones of the story told in How To Run With a Naked Werewolf, make for much darker fare than those of its predecessors; the romance, comedic treatment, and nonstop action of this read work together to provide readers with the very relatable, feel-good romance that Molly Harper fans have come to expect.
The the romantic fires are much slower to kindle between our supernatural hunter and his skiddish quarry, but the more time they spend together, catching bad guys and uncovering secrets; the more things between them heat up.
This may be the sweetest story of the three because of the poignancy of Anna's back-story.  Seeing her overcome her past, to open her heart to Caleb Graham, is enough to make one's heart sing.
While Caleb's willingness to do "whatever it takes" to protect and serve his lady love without stripping her of her strength, intelligence, and self sufficiency make him a were that dreams are made of.
