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.
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?]
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.
Take a look it's in a book...Reading Rainbow!
LOve, LOve, Love Molly Harper!! She crafts wonderful stories full of quirky fun characters. Every book is an adventure and a laugh riot. She takes you on a journey filled with snark, sass and oodles of attitude!
Anna is a great character, she has such inner strength, even when she thinks she is weak. She fits the stereotype of the heroines in these series, but that is not a bad thing. I love all the gals and really enjoy all the sarcastic wit they dish out!
Caleb is really interesting, especially with his grey moral ground. But he easily grows on you, You Stay With Me, his mantra that feels like love from the start! He is kind of a tough guy bit not mean or overbearing. I love that he let Anna find her own way.
The story this time was interesting and a little tour of Alaska. With Caleb's Bounty Hunter job they encounter some sketchy situations. Seriously hilarious moment, notably offering to show boobs as a distraction technique and a tussle with a stripper.
The love story takes time to grow, which is always nice. It was more believable that way. The dynamic between the two is fantastic, made me want my own wolfie guy!
Yummy steamy action, kind of a place between mainstream and erotic, just enough smexy detail to have a girl panting!! Oh, la, I am a sucker for steamy shifter lovin! Those boys are all about the hot and heavy!
I listened to the audio-book, the narrator, Amanda Ronconi, is fabulous as always!! I love her southern charm! She really brings all the charters to life in a fabulous manner. She is one of my top listens!! The girl gives good ears!!
Sigh, now I am once again in a place waiting for the next book. Why do I gobble them up? I really need to pace myself, who am I kidding, Molly Harper is worth the all-nighters!! Give me more, as fast as you can!!!!!
I loved this book. Molly Harper is a great author. Any time I want to laugh I always turn to a Molly Harper book.
If I had to compare Molly Harper books. I would compare them probably with Jeaniene Frost books. Both authors have great paranormal stories with a lot of humor.
I loved the ending. I liked to see how character development from the other books.
All of Molly Harper book make me laugh, but this book also has a sad subject. I hate to hear about abuse and its sad to think about what Anna went through.
I can't wait till the next book.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Setting: Modern day Alaska
Category: Paranormal comic romance
I used to avoid paranormal plots like antibiotic resistant germs, but since I stumbled across Molly Harper I have changed my attitude. Well, as long as the book is funny.
The plot here is fun, and keeps going, not getting bogged down in any particular place. And while the story doesn't depend on the setting, the frontier attitude of some of the minor characters is fun.You probably can figure out part of the plot well before Tina does, but not all of it. And the revelation of that part is appropriate at the time it happens.
I enjoyed how the growth of a relationship between Caleb and Tina crept in between them as the plot develops, rather than hitting them on the head like a hammer. This wasn't love at first sight and sex at the first opportunity. There is a sense of the passage of time before the L word is even thought about by the characters.
Even though you'd think this is part of a series, don't. The Naked Werewolf books are more of a group because, despite a few recurring characters, none is dependent on the others. It doesn't matter in what order you read them, as long as you read all three. They are that much fun, and worth the credit.
The narration was wonderful because...Amanda Ronconi.
I got all teary at the end, not because it was sad, but because it was over.
I love how all of her books within the same worlds intertwine with each other. Not so much that you have to have read the other series to understand it, but if you have you catch the little allusions to the other stories.
My favorite was when Anna was in the bar fights... your choice they were both good!!
I was listening at work and kept being asked what I was listening to as I kept trying to stifle my laughter in my cubicle. It was well worth the wait and I cannot wait for the next book Molly Harper writes!!
