THE ART OF SEDUCING A NAKED WEREWOLF BY MOLLY HARPER
Title: The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf
Author: Molly Harper

Format: Mass Market Paperback
How I read it: Mass Market Paperback from the publisher
Baring it All
Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stone’s throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes in 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 inter-pack war threatening, Maggie can’t afford to be distracted. Combining romance and a career can be tough from anyone; for a werewolf in love with a human, it may be disastrous…….
Molly Harper has once again dazzled us with her wit and brilliance as she brings to us Maggie’s story in THE ART OF SEDUCING A NAKED WEREWOLF. This book is just as intriguing and comedic as the first and you will not want to put this book down.
The characters are amazing as well, and if you have read the first the book HOW TO FLIRT WITH A NAKED WEREWOLF, you will recognize a majority of them. Of course rather than featuring Cooper and Mo, this book features Maggie, Cooper’s sister, as the star of the book. She is witty, snaky, and dangerous if you make her mad, you may lose a limb or at least a few fingers and possibly an ear, just ask Cooper. I liked Maggie; I liked the fact that she was a take-no-nonsense kind of girl. The alpha of her of pack, she is very capable to take control of the situation at hand, yet when an outsider comes into her world, her heart seems to have a mind of its own.
Nick, said outsider, was a fun read and I found that the more I read about him, the more I liked him. He had a nice back-story that readers will have to find out on their own, which I believed enhanced his character. Traveling to Grundy, Alaska to investigate the rumors of lycanthropic activity, he soon finds that he is drawn to Maggie Graham. Although the more she tries to push him away, the close they become.
Her snarky remarks and his determination to prove the existence of werewolves create a one-of-a-kina romance that will have readers rolling on the floor in fits of uncontrollable laughter.
Of course, the loveable antics of the residence of Grundy are still included, and we get to see a lovely amount of Mo and Cooper, as well as a mix of new characters that adds a bit of excitement to the book.
Trust me this is the book that you have been looking for.
Once again the art department has done an outstanding job with this cover. It conveys so much of the book in its quirkiness.
