Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.
The problem is, Caleb employs his lupine tracking abilities as a not-quite-legal bounty hunter, and Anna is suspicious of both him and his profession. On the run from her past, with old problems closing in, she'd like to stay far, far away from anybody with connections to the law. Caleb, however, seems determined to keep her close. Are his intentions noble, or is he working a more predatory angle?
Anna's been dreaming of returning to a semi-normal life, but now she's experiencing a strange new urge...to join Caleb in running with the wolves.

Always my favorites, the Werewolves and Vampires. I don't think I would ever want to read any of these books, when Amanda Ronconi is narrating them. Her delivery adds so much to the story that undeniably it wouldn't be the same without her voice. This one has the usual predictability as most of the series does, but who cares when they are so enjoyable and always leaves you feeling good.
I did enjoy this book but my gauge for a 5 star book is if I have to finish a book the day I start it because I just can't wait. Perhaps one of the major issues I had with this book was that Anna was a bit immature in her way of thinking and logic. She ran away from a pack of werewolves she was working for and knew for sure they cared for her and had her best interest in mind because she did not want to bring anything bad down on the group? huh? Is she completely mad? Would it not have made sense to tell the alpha her issues and let the pack decide if they wanted to help her instead of working in unsafe places where others could have hurt her? And then to run from Caleb too? That logic was a bit immature and stupid as well. I guess I found it frustrating to have a storyline based on logic saved for a 17 year old and not a mature woman. Other than that I mostly liked the story again BUT the story just did not have that draw for me.
As an artist busy with my hands and eyes I had to give up reading. Then audio books came into my life and I am back to over 200 books a yr.
Definitely. A different slant on werewolves in this story showing a different kind of personality and character than is in most werewolf stories.
Fell in love with Caleb and Tina and loved the way the relationship developed slowly. Even though I suspected midway about a few facts that came out in the end, I still enjoyed the progression as it was written.
Ronconi is one of my favorite narrators. She definitely puts the right attitude in the characters and her delivery of the snarky remarks are perfect as always. The voices for the men are very good and distinct.
It was more of a cozy read but I like that. Harper put enough suspense in to make me tense and worried that it would not end up HEA. For me it was one of those books where you want to reach out and hug some of the characters and beat up the bad guy. I found myself cheering during fight scenes and trying to get help to arrive sooner.
I haven't read a Harper/Ronconi book that I didn't love. Thanks to audible and my addition to audiobooks, I have a few hundred that I haven't read that I need to plow through. However, I plan on re-reading this one every year for dessert.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Another enjoyable listen. I'm glad to see that Molly Harper finally came out with another werewolf story. I like this series better than the Nice Girl series. As usually Molly Harper brings lots of humor to her stories. Being more of an Alpha female myself, I have a hard time understanding why women let this happen to them. I know if some man abused me like that, I would find a way to hide the body. I realize I'm not as sensitive to this subject matter as I should be, which could be why I tend to identify with with Maggie the most. Amanda Ronconi is an excellent narrator.
S'okay. I've listened to both of the earlier volumes in this series and all of the Half Moon Hollow series. As I mentioned in a review of one of them, I'm not usually attracted to books labeled funny but ... I loved the constant stream of puns, non-sequiturs and plays on clichés and commercials in those books. The romances between the feisty woman and strong fellas was enjoyable without too much (for a guy) bodice-ripping.
Perhaps Ms. Harper's run low on her supply of quips and one-liners. Please, if this is the first Molly Harper book you've encountered, don't buy it (now). Start one of the earlier books. They are GREAAATTTT, as my friend Tony (or was it Flicka?) used to say. Do buy it when you need the ending of the Grundy story.
Yes, I will buy more books from Ms. Harper and sample anything narrated by Ms. Ronconi.
[Just, please don't tell Amazon or Kindle my buying plans. I suspect them both of raising prices based on the individual's buying history ... if I buy one, the next one seems more expensive. Perhaps I should sneak in as an avatar?]
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
Once again, a story that has everything, romance, werewolves, suspense, mystery, and best of all humor. Molly Harper tells a story like no one else; and Amanda Ronconi is the best person ever to read the story. Please don't ever change that. Looking forward to the next book.
Ms Harper departs from her standard Kentucky background. You can't get too much different than the Alaskan frontier! She stretches her writing prowess in this book, and proves that she's a wonderful storyteller. I felt like I knew these characters well.. and my emotions kept going back and forth .. not knowing whether I approved.. or not.. or did.. or not... It was a great ride!
Yep, I laughed and giggled at Ms Harper's sense of humor.. I truly enjoy it. That didn't change in this book!
I always have enjoyed this narrator. She and Ms Harper are a dynamite duo!
Yes, I'd recommend this book highly. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Against all other audiobooks, Molly Harper books are by far my favorite listens. I find myself returning to her books over and over again. They're funny, happy, enjoyable stories with just the right amount of mystery an suspense for an easy listen. The dialogue and goofy situations are just so fun! Amanda Ronconi is the best and my favorite narrator by far!
Absolutely, humor, characters and stories by this author, read by this narrator, are as good as audible books get!
A tad less angst in the latter part of the story
Life, for each character. Humor sly and pointed. And that fabulous voice....
This authors works are as good as this genre gets. Hours of fun laughs and pleasure. I listen to them over and over. And that's because of the work and the reader being equally wonderful!
Audiobooks are relaxing and 'food for the soul'.
Outstanding Story! I am truly glad that the Molly & Amanda duo created another outstanding listen. While this installment is a bit more serious than the others in the series, it was non-the-less entertaining. Believe me when I say, you can never go wrong when choosing this author/narrator combination.
