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.

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.
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!!
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a really good story. I loved both Caleb and Anna and it's a very good addition to the Naked Werewolf series.
Anna is in hiding due to a stalking/violent husband that wont leave her alone. She is a doctor but can't work under her own name. She finds work in Alaska under an assumed name through a Network that helps women in trouble like her. The work is as a doctor for a small town and once there, she finds out they're a town full of werewolves. She stays there for a few years but when she gets a warning that her husband may have tracked her down, Anna runs from her home and job. After some traveling to get away, she ends up in a temp job for some cash before moving on to Anchorage but things go wrong when she gets caught up in a shooting.
Caleb is a werewolf and works as a bounty hunter. Caleb is a good guy and I really liked his character but his jobs aren't always on the right side of the law. He's been traveling around Alaska a lot for his job and has been away from his pack for years (since his dad died). Caleb ends up in a parking lot in a small town and gets caught up in a mis-understanding that gets him shot. He's unexpectedly saved from getting run over by a human female.
Anna is leaving her job when she hears men arguing and ends up witnessing Caleb being shot. When his opponent attempts to run Caleb over after shooting him, Anna saves him and takes him far away in an attempt to get away from the crazy shooter. Soon enough she realizes what Caleb is but when he wakes up she doesn't let on that she knows and just tries to get away from him. When Caleb wakes up and realizes what happened he has no intention of letting Anna get away from him. He's determined to keep her safe and convinces her to ride with him to Anchorage. The ride is interesting and at first Anna is still very jumpy and unwilling to trust Caleb but as she spends more time with him, she realizes he's a good guy and starts to trust him enough to stick around. Eventually she even starts helping Caleb with his work as they travel. Things stay at "just friends" for a while as they travel and work together but the attraction is there for both of them.
Because of Anna's situation with her Ex, she's used to hiding who she is and any details. Caleb tries to get her to share with him but what she tells him is limited. Things aren't easy as they both are keeping secrets and when things come out it causes some major strife and trust issues. There's also the fact that Anna's Ex is getting closer and it freaks her out and causes her to make stupid moves. Caleb and Anna get closer and go past just friendship. I really liked seeing how they came together and liked Caleb a lot with how he went about it. There's some drama but Anna eventually digs deep and figures out what is important for her. Anna and Caleb decide to be together but still have issues to face in the form of Anna's Ex. Unfortunately he's quite psychotic and isn't willing to let her go. There is more drama before all is settled but in the end we get a sweet HEA for Anna and Caleb.
This was a really good story. I loved the characters and it was a good story with humor, suspense and romance. It's a really good addition to the Naked Werewolf series and I can't wait for the next book in the series. Also, there's a surprise cameo of a couple of characters from the Jane Jameson series that was a really cool treat. I'd recommend this book. Thumbs up. :D
