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.

Molly Harper has a wonderful sense of humor, great wit and writing skills her books need. Amanda Ronconi knows just the right inflection to deliver the best reading of Molly's books. I hope these two continue producing books together for a long time!
Entertaining, sexy, even compelling!
Molly Harper's works are a fun and easy escape. Great stories with stimulating and amusing characters and plot lines.
Amanda Ronconi's performance for the Naked Werewolf series is spot on! Each book takes on a different character from that universe, but Amanda brings each character their own unique voice and charm. She also brings just the right tension and suspense when appropriate.
This is the third installment of the Naked Werewolf series. Each book follows different women in the NW universe, each telling their own captivating, fun and/or mysterious, and sexy stories. Not your typical romance/fantasy novel. Charming, humorous and great fun.
I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!
Yes, I will (have) listen to this again. It is well written and touches on a sensitive subject with humor and insight.
When main character talks to werewolf as if he were abusive husband, and realizes later that she did just that.
I've listened to her performances only with Molly Harper's novels. I've enjoyed them all.
Yes, I did listen to in one sitting.
No, I found it a frustrating book to listen to. It was a hard topic to make funny to begin with and I found the characters' propensity to run at every turn to be irritating. Also, a bunch of emotions for someone who has been in a similar past relationship.. I came close to stopping listening many times.
Less silly afraid girl ready to bolt from safety.
the same, they need a real man to do the men's voice. These are macho wolf guys and the girly voice does not suit.
Really enjoy this series. Made my day and my drive much quicker.
Love her voice and how she uses different reflections to showcase those characters in this book. Great job
Yes, and no. It was great to have something to look forward to during my long drive. Just wanted to hear more.
Molly Harper is just one of those authors that I connect with very easily and she always provides me with a good, entertaining story. While her Naked Werewolf books have not been my favorites, I still enjoy the Alaskan setting and her personal twist on the werewolf romance. How to Run with a Naked Werewolf is the third (and possibly last) of the series and is definitely my favorite. This particular story provides readers with two strong-willed and fully-developed characters in Anna and Caleb, a fun road romance, and a nice balance between Harper's classic humor and a more serious tone in relation to Anna's past.
Anna Moder was the director of the medical clinic in the Crescent Valley, a community of werewolves in the middle of rural Alaska. Dr. Moder is a human who was placed in the Valley to handle the government required paperwork associated with births/deaths that could be seen as suspicious by people who are unaware of the existence of supernatural creatures. But, she is hiding a big secret that forces her to run from one of the only places she's ever thought of as home. Of course, it is through pure irony that, while running, Anna is thrown into a difficult, but hilarious situation with one of the few Valley residents she never met, Caleb Graham.
I absolutely adored Anna's character! She is the quintessential Molly Harper heroine with her quirky sense of humor, independent spirit, and ability to just go with the flow in even the weirdest of circumstances. But, what made her stand out to me was that she was able to maintain such a personality after going through such trauma in her past. It is quickly revealed that Anna is running from an abusive husband who is obsessed with finding her and her ultimate goal is to get to Anchorage where a contact will help her develop a new identity. I really appreciated the obvious research that was done on domestic abuse which showed great respect for those who find themselves in such situations.
Caleb was a minor character in The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf and all that fans of the series really knew about him was that he was a loner who worked as a bounty hunter. This book provides more insight into both his job and how it reflects his personality. His own family situation has shaped him to avoid settling down until he meets Anna and is thrown for a loop from that point on. I loved the combination of strength and vulnerability that is found in Caleb. He is an alpha hero, but has some beta characteristics that I appreciated. For instance, he is very protective of Anna especially after learning about her past, but, for the most part, avoids smothering Anna's spirit because that is something that attracted him to her in the beginning.
This story mostly revolves revolves around Anna and Caleb's travels with her trying to get to Anchorage and him trying to make a living. I loved all the unique characters that this couple gets to meet as they work on Caleb's cases with one of my particular favorites being Trixie, the Amazonian stripper with an unfortunate medical issue. I do think this book could be read as a stand-alone since most of the plot takes place away from Grundy and the Crescent Valley, but, for long-time fans, it was great to see cameos of some of our favorites like Mo, Cooper, Samson, Maggie, and Nick. And for Harper fans in general, there is a fun and surprising scene with two of my favorite characters from her other paranormal series.
I listened to How to Run with a Naked Werewolf on audio with Amanda Ronconi as the narrator. I have said it many times, but it always bears repeating. Amanda Ronconi just gets Molly Harper's writing style and voice. Her performances are always entertaining and just make me laugh out loud at certain parts. I've never actually read a Molly Harper book so I can't attest to their entertainment value as paper copies but the audio versions are some of the best I've listened too. If you want to give Harper a try, I can't recommend listening to one of Ronconi's narrations enough.
If I were guaranteed a sexy werewolf I would move to Alaska. I love the characters and how well she blends all the books in a series. This one had a bit more edge with the psycho ex-husband, but the ending was great. Another great series by Molly Harper.
funny fast great as always...... love molly harper. love the tie in with all her other books. getting better and better.
Molly Harper was able to show the humor that we are accustomed to in her books while also adding the serious topic of domestic violence. I don't know how she did it, but great job.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
I have never read a print version of any of Molly Harper Books, but I do enjoy Amanda Ronconis performance.
Yes, I feel they were better and more light hearted.
