    light, fun and entertaining. Enjoying this series. This book (and the one before) are perfect when you just want to read something fun. There is the paranormal element with having werewolves, the romance element, the sense of community element plus we get to see the characters from the first book in the series. I wasn't a huge fan of Maggie in the first book but liked her in this one!

Or.... just brainstorming here.... maybe she can have sex with him until he forgets the idea of werewolves completely... just sayin'... There is more than one way to accomplish a goal. I'd go with Option B. Maggie has a boatload of issues going on in her life, what with everyone trying to either kill her, mate her, or dethrone her as alpha. It's like the werewolf edition of fuck/marry/kill. If he's chuckling at this joke, he can fit into category A or B. If not, he's a C. These two take a long time to get together, and actually date other people in the meantime (but, there's no cheating). Maggie is dating another werewolf and sees Nick dancing with another human, and talks to her sister-in-law about the situation: "It's no big deal. Nick and I, we're trying to be friends. He knew I was here with a date. It's not like I got all wound up when he was dancing with Saint Darby, the Animal Rescue Princess." "So, you're okay with this?" Mo asked. "Why wouldn't I be?" "Because you called her Saint Darby, the Animal Rescue Princess," Mo said. "It expresses a certain amount of latent hostility..." I love Molly Harper's humor in writing, and although I find some of the characters in the werewolf series slightly less likable than the ones in the Jane Jameson series, I still really enjoy myself when I read her books. She always brings about some quirky and silly moments that crack me up, along with side characters that make me love them. I'm on to the next one.

    4.5 Stars! I'm hooked on this author's writing and Amanda Ronconi's animated narration. I thought the pairing of Maggie and Nick was brilliant! I know some readers didn't care for Maggie in How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf, and I was a little leery of her too, but she was awesome in this book.

Cooper was front and center, a central part of the story along with Mo and baby Eva...cute little pup that she is, just don't say that around Mo! There were some wonderful secondary characters, although in reality I would really consider them to be key players; Momma Graham, Samson (his bromance with Nick was great), Clay, Alicia, a nice little mystery, and a twist that I didn't see coming. This is not your typical shifter/werewolf series, oh the mating call is strong and steamy...very hot...but as a whole the humor zany characters and human/shifter pairings, set it apart from most paranormal reads. I can't wait for the next book, How To Run With A Naked Werewolf, and once again be wowed by Molly Harper's wonderful writing and Amanda Ronconi's delightful narration!

I met Maggie in the first book. She’s Cooper’s sister and the chosen Alpha of their pack when Cooper refuses to take up that position. Maggie’s life is the pack, dealing with a whole host of issues on a daily basis: mediating disagreements, looking after their elderly members, patrolling the land, and defending the pack from any possible threats. A big threat has entered her territory in the form of a geeky but gorgeous man, Nick. He’s up in Grundy investigating rumors of werewolves and looking for the real story behind the folklore, risking their exposure if he gets too close to the truth. Of course, Maggie is attracted this hunk-of-nerd, but Maggie can’t let her feelings for him get in the way of protecting the pack. Also, mating with just a regular human lessens the chances she’ll have children who shift into wolves. Still, these two can’t fight the pull and soon they’re spending more and more time together. In the midst of all this, someone is anonymously attacking Maggie. A few times it seems like a prank, but these attacks are getting more dangerous, but Maggie can’t pin down the perpetrator. To me, it was sort of obvious who was behind all this, but it didn’t occur to Maggie which was a little hard to believe at times. Maggie behaved like a spoiled child in the first book and so was very unlikeable. It took me a while to warm up to her, and while she was much better in this installment, Maggie never truly won my heart over. Nick was a sweetheart and a hero my bookish self really appreciated! Yet, I really didn’t have strong feelings for the romance, because I never felt their connection intensely. Maybe I questioned what Nick saw in Maggie? Not sure what didn’t wow me. Still, the story was quite entertaining with a fun group of secondary characters and I really loved the setting of Alaska, as well. I missed being in Grundy for most of this book, part of its appeal was its Northern Exposure type of vibe I got from the story and this was missing here. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf and while I enjoyed this installment it didn’t hold the same appeal. Still, it was a lot of fun! I think the narration really enhanced the story with Ms. Ronconi giving life to the dry, sarcastic humor I love so much. I plan on reading the next in the series How to Run With a Naked Werewolf, very soon. You can read this review and more at The Readers Den.

Okay, I'll just come out and say it, Maggie seemed like one giant lesbian. If the author didn't repeatedly tell us that Maggie was interested in Nick, I wouldn't have been the least bit surprised if Maggie started hitting on that hoochie waitress at Mo's diner and got it on with her in the parking lot. She came across as super not interested in men, and the sort of deep audiobook voice of Maggie didn't help matters. I also thought that the plot dragged and, honestly, I just didn't care to finish it. I didn't actively dislike it but it was nothing more than blah for me.

But The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf is still worth reading, worth listening to and a decent installment. What do I like about this series? I am typically not a paranormal romance fan. So here is my reasoning of why I am enjoying this series and I cannot wait until the third in this series is released. Not Formulaic Many (not all) paranormal romance novels focus on a big and emotionally damaged male who somehow has to save a woman in need. The Naked Werewolf series is not about this formula, which okay can be fun if done right but does get tiring. The hero in this book is a portrayed as a highly educated bookish nerdy guy – yummm. And the heroine is the alpha of a werewolf pack. The characters The characters, despite mostly being werewolves, are average people. They aren’t super rich, they cook food, go to work and have friendships. Molly Harper shows her characters in normal friendship situations, interacting with each other and hanging out. The town I guess this goes along with the characters. The series focuses on a small array of characters that live in the area the book takes place and which interact with each other. The characters repeat from the first book and create a richer and fuller background. The setting I am a sucker for a rural and remote setting, factor in winter and a forest – and I will dream of living there. This series is set in Alaska. Can’t get much more remote or rural than that. Molly Harper shows the setting to be beautiful but powerfully scary. The focus of the story Yes, this is paranormal romance and the uniting of one couple is the focus of the Naked Werewolf series. But the friendships and the werewolf pack are also important to the storyline. And even better – the couple from the first book plays a starring role in this second book. Yes, the book is slightly predictable and maybe I knew who the bad guy was before the big reveal. But, the world is richly created, the characters are interesting and it is laugh out loud funny. If you do audio books, I highly recommend listening to the performance of these books. They are well done.

    As entertaining as the first book. Although Cooper's sister Maggie won't strike you as a true pack alpha (there are simply too many mistakes she makes the alpha should know better), that doesn't take anything away from the story.

Nick comes to their little part of the world hoping to prove the existence of supernatural beings. You can see how this might be a serious problem for Maggie. Of course the first thing she thinks of is to get rid of him, but her family frowns on that kind of thing. Go figure. 'How many family conversations are going to be interrupted by me telling you, no, you can’t kill someone and make it look like an accident?' What Maggie doesn't expect is her weird reaction to Nick. She is under a lot of pressure to find a mate. One of the potential candidates is the dumbest person she knows, but she can't do anything about Lee because he is a nephew of a pack member. So she deals with it in her own way. 'So, I put up with Lee and his blithe advances and contented myself with giving him minor injuries whenever he tried to touch me.' A human is the last thing she should think of. Maggie being Maggie (we know how she dealt with problems in the previous book), is pretty mad. The family advice doesn't help her much. 'Yeah, but when has telling someone to do what makes them happy ever resulted in a good decision? Remember when we told cousin Todd to do what made him happy and he came home with recently augmented boobs?' There are so many hilarious comments in this book. Oh, and I loved Nick.'I’m happy either way,” Nick said. “Oh, that’s sweet.” Cooper chuckled. “You think you have a vote.' So, the bottom line regarding The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf is that it's low angst, fun and light. Of course you can find stuff to nitpick if you wish, but if you want something with simple fairytale resolutions, something to make you laugh, then look no further.

    Molly Harper books are just plain funny. If you're wanting an easy, light and cleaver read, her books are perfect.

She was a tough, scrappy, alpha-female that could easily kick fellow werewolf tail. Hummm, not exactly "Ms. Personality!" I wanted to like her and she was quite funny and self-deprecating at times, although, "funny" is a far cry from being a plain ole, ahem...bitch. Her only redeeming quality was the fact that she finally lightened up when she realized she was falling for the hero and human, "Nick." This story would have been much better had there not been so much going on. Maggie still lived at home, and being the alpha-wolf (replacing Cooper from that job in book 1), made her in charge of all the family's business. She also had to look after an aunt with dementia, a few "slow" werewolves who couldn't keep from marking their territory all over her, that part was actually hilarious and making sure this new handsome human in town was kept from finding out the truth about her family. We were flip-flopped around a lot until finally, the story started to get interesting in the last 1/3 of the story. Yep, you have to wait a while for this romance to finally take hold and I'm not sure how many of us is that patient. Not to mention that since this story was written in 1st person and kept the reader in Maggie's head way too much. I wanted to know more about how Nick was feeling or heck, at one point, I would have been entertained by the aunt's point of view, who had dementia. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy Harper's books and her clever humor and fluid writing style; although, I just couldn't stay connected with this book as much as I'd hoped.

    I think I need to read everything Molly Harper has written. This is the second book in the series, and just as much fun! The characters are all so incredibly likable, and the love story between Maggie and Nick , Is just so cute. Makes you want to marry A werewolf, they have such a tight family bond, are always there for one another, and the boy werewolves all seem to be hot!

She has to deal with the day to day running of her pack, some of her pack aren't happy that she's alpha and are busy undermining her authority. She has a bunch of guys who want to become her life mate, and someone seems to be trying to kill her. Add to that Nick a very sexy anthropologist who is convinced of the existence of werewolves is sniffing around. I like Molly Harper...a lot. I love her clever turn of phrase, her intelligent sense of humor, I love the way she writes women (strong and determined). Unfortunately there is just a little too much going on in this book. The key storyline, that of the relationship between Maggie and Nick is overshadowed by all the other goings on and what is left is a bit of a dogs breakfast. It's still good, I might even say it's still great, but it doesn't reach the lofty heights of some of her other books.

The 4 star rating is really more a 4.5 and the ONLY reason it wasn’t a 5 like the other two books is that I didn’t feel that obsessed feeling while reading it like I did the others. And after much thought, I believe the reason is that this story focuses on Maggie, Cooper’s little sister and the female alpha leader of their pack. I think that I just didn’t obsess over her as much as I did the male werewolves in the family in the other books with their big hands and big feet (wink, wink!) Maggie Graham has won the position of alpha of her pack. She has to fight every day to retain the respect of her pack members. Part of the responsibility she feels is to choose a mate that is also a werewolf, to produce children that will continue the family line. But then the very handsome Nick Thatcher, PHD shows up in town. Nick wants to study werewolf folklore. There is an instant attraction but Maggie does everything in her power to stay away from him and chase him out of town, but he’s not going anywhere. “As a matter of fact, the idea that he’s trying to exploit innocent furred people instead of modeling for underwear ads – the way God obviously intended – is reason enough to kill him.” At the same time, a series of incidents begin happening, and Maggie has to protect her family, her pack. But who would do these things? Maggie is a tough, snarky girl struggling to lead her pack and at the same time, falling in love for the first time. We get plenty of time with Mo and Cooper from the first book as well as the rest of the Graham family. This series is so much fun. And again, you think you might have it figured out but Molly Harper doesn’t reveal who is terrorizing the pack until the final few pages and I was on the edge of my seat. This series is best if read in order. I highly recommend it to anyone that wants a sweet, fun, wolfy and suspenseful book. Molly Harper, you’re the best!!!

As the Alpha of the Grundy Alaskan werewolf pack, Maggie literally has the furry world on her shoulders.

As the Alpha of the Grundy Alaskan werewolf pack, Maggie literally has the furry world on her shoulders. Ever since her brother abdicated the pawed throne, Maggie has had to be local sheriff, judge and jury to her little wolf community. So when an anthropological zoologist with Trekkie tendencies comes sniffing around, hunting for ‘werewolves’, it falls to Maggie to interrogate and run him out of town. It just sucks that Nick Thatcher smells so darn good, and happens to have a whole sexy professor vibe that gets Maggie’s engine revving. It’s also bad timing that Nick turns up right when Maggie’s aunties are dropping boulder-sized hints about match-making and mating for life... ‘The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf’ is the second book in Molly Harper’s ‘Naked Werewolf’ paranormal romance series. I loved the first book in this series, ‘How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf’. That first book concentrated on the romance of exiled-Alpha, Cooper, and his human mate Mo. In ‘Seducing’, Cooper’s younger sister Maggie is the first-ever female Alpha and coasting in her leadership role when a handsome spanner is thrown in her works, in the form of Nick Thatcher. Wolfy hilarity ensues. . . In ‘Flirt’, Maggie was a combative and prickly character – angry at her brother for abandoning the pack, and disgruntled at her impotence in the testosterone-filled pack hierarchy. I wasn’t sure how I'd like her as a protagonist, let alone a love interest, given her somewhat mean disposition. But Molly Harper has written Maggie as whip-quick, ballsy chick. I loved how strong she was and unremorsefully cocky. She’s a fantastic protagonist, and utterly unique in the paranormal romance genre; “Look, Mags, I'm not any happier about him being here than you are. But I think we should take a more subtle approach than your usual ‘bite first, bite again, keep biting until they’re too busy bleeding to death to explain themselves’ method.” “It if ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” I shot back. Nick was the perfect Beta to Maggie’s Alpha. He’s no wimp, but I loved that his nerdy obsession with fantasy and werewolves made him well-suited to Maggie’s overbearing personality. Nick was hilarious; referencing Star Trek and Doctor Who and just being generally geeky-gorgeous. Harper writes a bit of a dark back story for Nick, which felt under-developed and seemed to halt mid-way, but overall I loved him and I adored him with Maggie. Molly Haprer has her tongue firmly in cheek throughout a lot of the ‘Naked Werewolf’ series. I love that Harper adopts a funny-blasé attitude to a lot of werewolf mythology, allowing her to answer and explore a lot of interesting lore. She explores pack dynamics, mating rituals, the possibility of other were-animals . . . while also answering a lot of regular, every-day questions associated with turning furry. These conundrums are the sort of thing only a comedic writer can explore, in all their unperturbed hilarity; You would think it would be weird to see your male relatives running around naked all the time, but really you stop noticing. It’s sort of sad, really. You’ve seen one penis, you’ve seen them all. I had to stop saying that in front of my mother, because she said it was something a hooker would put on a business card. If I have any complaint about this instalment, it’s that Harper appears to have wrapped the series up in two books. There was a strong possibility of two werewolf characters, Samson and Clay, getting their own books and romances . . . but Harper effectively nixes that idea by the end of ‘Seducing’, which is a shame. Samson was Podunk-hilarious; while Clay had an intense, smouldering thing going on . . . I would have loved it if this series continued on past two books to encompass their HEA. Molly Harper is the queen of the funny paranormal romance. She absolutely excels in the ‘Naked Werewolf’ series – writing irreverently funny and furry romances. I wish the series was going to continue past these two books, but I can’t see that happening with how Harper neatly ties-off ‘The Art of Seducing’. Still, this was a wacky-gorgeous series and it cements Molly Harper as one of my all-time favourite authors.

I liked the end of the book - I didn't see a lot of things coming, and more than that the details aren't really something that you can guess, even if you do correctly guess how things are going to go. There were quite a few things that caught me off guard in this story and I really liked those twists. I think Harper did a great job in that respect. In this book, I really started to see that Harper's heroines all tend to be quite alike with small differences. My favourite will always be Jane, the reluctant vamp in Harper's Nice Girls... series (hands down, Jane is hilarious). I'd love to see Harper write a girly girly character as a heroine. It'd be a nice change. I liked seeing more of Cooper and Mo again because they actually played a role in the storyline rather than just being thrown into the story so that the reader can see them again (that sort of thing happens all too often in other series). I also liked seeing more of Cooper's mom and the were pack. It wouldn't hurt for Harper to throw in a romantic subplot into these tales. I hated how we didn't get to see Mo's best friend hook up with the cop, even if there was no conflict there it would have been nice to see a little more of them. I just think the reader could benefit from a little break from the main characters now and again. The unexpected plot details elevate this book to 4/5 rating.

    I adore books that make me smile or chuckle. It is very rare fro me to find one that will make me laugh out loud...but this book did, several times! We are treated to Maggies' story, but for those of you who have read the first novel How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf you will be happy to know that Mo and Cooper are in secondary character parts. Don't worry if you don't have the time or inclination to read the first novel. (although I'll bet you will go back to read that one and the third one that I adore books that make me smile or chuckle.

Don't worry if you don't have the time or inclination to read the first novel. (although I'll bet you will go back to read that one and the third one that is soon to be published How to Run with a Naked Werewolf) Ms Harper does an excellent job with back-story so you never feel left out of the loop. However, for fans, she doesn't overindulge in back-story and make the series readers feel like most of the book is filler. There is enough sarcastic banter, romance, heated encounters, mystery and misdirection to keep almost any reader happy. Maggie is a werewolf and is her packs Alpha and Nick has come into town searching for the truth behind the werewolf legends. Maggie needs to misdirect Nick and his multiple PhD's from the truth about werewolves, for everyone's safety. But, something draws Maggie to Nick like a moth to a flame. Heated encounters ensue, but Maggie needs to look out for her pack. There is more action that will keep you reading and trying to figure out just who is the bad-guy. This is a fairly fast and light read, designed to entertain and to not overly tax your brain. This is just what I needed on a cold and dreary winter's day.

    This was not as good as the first book in this series, mainly because of Maggie. I didn't liked her when she was first introduced as Cooper's obnoxious sister and her character didn't improved much in this. I don't know what Nick saw in her. Now Nick I liked, a lot. Sweet, nerdy and super smart. I didn't felt any connection between them. There was so much going on in the story, the romance part was eclipsed by all of it. Loved reading about Cooper and Mo and their little pup Eva. And I missed th This was not as good as the first book in this series, mainly because of Maggie.

    I really liked this one. I didn't think I'd like having a female be the super strong one but it was really pretty great! This is the second book in the "Naked Werewolf" series. The first one was awesome. Funny and exciting and sweet. Loved it! This one had, I think, a lot more action. Maggie Graham is the new official alpha of the pack of Werewolves that live near Grundy, Alaska. Her brother, Cooper, was slated to be the alpha but some bad stuff went down and he stayed away from the pack for year I really liked this one.

Her brother, Cooper, was slated to be the alpha but some bad stuff went down and he stayed away from the pack for years. Only recently, did everyone realize that the guy who was acting as temporary packmaster was a murdering psychopath. He was put down in book 1 and Cooper gave the alpha-ship to his younger sister Maggie. She's doing her best and doing what she thinks is right and she's doing a pretty good job! Not everyone thinks so though. Especially, since someone is taking shots at her pack mates and trying to set her office on fire!! On top of that, her family and her pack are pressuring her to settle down, be mated and have pups. PLUS, an outsider, Nick Thatcher, a research scientist, arrives in town, wanting to do research on lycanthropes, and he is SUPER handsome and smart and sweet and he is exactly what Maggie needs to stay away from!! But as the alpha, she has to deal with this guy and make sure that he doesn't see anything that will give away their secret!! This was a very fun read. Maggie is not your typical romance heroine. She's tough and unemotional and extremely practical. I didn't find her very soft or feminie at all. But you still like her a lot. She really is doing her best and doing what she thinks is best for the pack. She puts her own wants and needs aside to do what's best for her pack, her family and her friends. And when she starts to want and need Nick, she starts having a tough time. Maggie is smart and funny and takes ZERO shit!!! Until she meets Nick. Nick gives as good as Maggie does and I think that makes them a great couple!! I would recommend this book. Reading book one isn't absolutely necessary but it will enhance your enjoyment of Cooper and Cooper's wife, Mo's relationship and the relationship between Maggie and Cooper. I will be continuing this series!! :)

    I think this one is closer to 3.5 stars, but I just couldn't give it the full 4. I loved the first one, but this one was a bit disappointing because the 180 Maggie pulls on her feelings for Nick. It really was a good story & I loved the characters, but I had issues with the plot. Still a fantastic author & I fully intend to read everything she puts out.

    3.5 - Funnier than the first one but also more predictable so I am leaving this at 3 stars. Again I am surprised how much I enjoyed this so far! It is so different from other books in the same category. I still liked Mo & Cooper more but Maggie & Nick were funnier! I am going to continue this series and also try others from this author.

    more like 2.5 I didn't like the heroine and the book was from her POV . She suppose to be the alpha of her pack , but she is weak and unsure of herself. There wasn't much of the hero in the book. not one of favorites!

    Rating: 2.5 Stars I began The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf in equal parts of skepticism and hope. I knew, even before I read the first page, that this follow-up stand-alone to How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf would be centered around Maggie, the rather bitchy werewolf sister of Cooper. Although Maggie was a less-than-likable character the first time we met her, I held out hope that as a narrator of her own story, we would glimpse the unexpected depth to her character and grow to like her. A Rating: 2.5 Stars I began The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf in equal parts of skepticism and hope. I knew, even before I read the first page, that this follow-up stand-alone to How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf would be centered around Maggie, the rather bitchy werewolf sister of Cooper. Although Maggie was a less-than-likable character the first time we met her, I held out hope that as a narrator of her own story, we would glimpse the unexpected depth to her character and grow to like her. As an added bonus, Nick, the hero of our tale, is a handsome blonde geek who spouts Star Trek references left and right and although nothing really tops werewolves, geeky guys are pretty close. Maggie, however, is no Mo. Unfortunately, this chick lost my attention with her narration and before long, I found myself skimming through the second-half of this tale. The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf has a promising premise, however. As the female alpha of her pack, it is Maggie's responsibility to chase off curious humans - curious humans like Nick Thatcher who is convinced after the string of attacks over the past year that werewolves live in Grundy, Alaska. Although Maggie does her best to make him leave, Nick won't budge and even worse, he desperately wants to ask Maggie on a date. Maggie, despite being attracted to Nick, has a responsibility to her pack to (a) procreate and give her pack alpha-werewolf heirs and (b) chase Nick away from Grundy so he'll stop asking questions. Of course, for the Graham siblings, things rarely go as planned, especially when it comes to outsider humans... Unlike How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf, I found that The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf started out with a bang. Instead of a slow start, we are immediately sucked into this tale and Maggie's narration is quite enjoyable. Until it isn't. Until we begin to realize that Maggie is not as hilarious as Mo, not as compelling of a person as Mo, and that her love story is kind of lame when compared to Mo's. You see, Maggie just isn't the fun, easy-going, and relate-able person that Mo is. And that is fine. In fact, I kind of like that she's prickly, untrustworthy, and feels the need to assert her strength constantly. It's part of being a werewolf and being an alpha and especially being a female alpha werewolf. Yet, while I understood Maggie, I couldn't really feel for her. The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf was not the toe-curling romance its predecessor was and nor did it make my stomach erupt in butterflies because one of my favorite characters was in danger. I simply didn't care all that much. It's difficult for me to pinpoint exactly why I failed to have an emotional connection to this book, but I suspect it's because we already knew everything about Maggie that there was to know. We learned about her past in the first book and although Nick was a mystery, his back story remained very underdeveloped. I did like him immensely as a character and I found his romance with Maggie to be very sweet, especially in the way they accepted each other for their quirky ways, but I can't wait they made my heart flutter the way Mo and Cooper did - and still do with this novel! Yes, The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf has a fantastic cast of secondary characters, just like the first book in this series. I loved getting to know the pack more in this installment, along with the inner workings and politics of it as well. Plus, there was plenty of hilarious banter with Mo and Cooper around, not to mention their daughter Eva. Where it fell short, however, was the actual mystery and plot twists. Although they were very well-done, it seemed as if the villain in this novel leaned more towards the caricature side of the scale. I also failed to find his reasons as logical as the villain in the previous novel. Nevertheless, despite all that, I do think The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf will be a hit among Molly Harper fans. While I didn't enjoy this novel as much as the first book, I do think it was a cute pass-time read, one I know I'd have loved if I could only get myself to form a bond with Maggie, Nick, or their relationship as a whole. If you want a heartwarming winter romance, How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf is what I'd recommend. And, you know, if you have free time, you can pick this up. Or skip it. Either way works.

    3.5 Stars Maggie Graham is now the official alpha of her pack that lives out side of the small town of Grundy, Alaska. It's her job to make sure the small community is taken care of and that their shape shifter secret remains just that. So when researcher Nick Thatcher starts asking questions around Grundy about reports of werewolves, it's up to Maggie to run Nick out of town. Problem is Maggie has something else in mind she'd like to do with the dream worthy nuisance.

It's her job to make sure the small community is taken care of and that their shape shifter secret remains just that. So when researcher Nick Thatcher starts asking questions around Grundy about reports of werewolves, it's up to Maggie to run Nick out of town. Problem is Maggie has something else in mind she'd like to do with the dream worthy nuisance. Despite Maggie's best attempts to scare him off, Nick has fallen for the temperamental wolf and will not back down. Aside from her personal life, Maggie has to deal with another pack who has their sights set on taking revenge and running her and her family out of their town. I wasn't sure how much I'd like reading an entire book where Maggie is the heroine. In How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf, she comes off as being angry and bratty like a child. In The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf she calms down a bit and we're introduced to a responsible woman who does all she can to take care of her people. As alpha she's not only expected to protect and provide for her people, but also mate a fellow wolf and have cubs to continue on the shifter line. Maggie's not thrilled with the idea but she's come to accept it. That is until Nick Thatcher arrives in Grundy. He's intelligent, friendly, funny, handsome and very passionate about his work. He wants to prove the existence of werewolves and after hearing about suspicious events that happened in Grundy a year ago, he thinks he's found the right place to do that. There's an a connection between the two from the start but Maggie tries to push Nick away and show she isn't interested by going out on dates with another man but Nick is set on being more than friends with her. Maggie is brash and can easily be offensive. Nick is driven and has a cute nerdy side to him. You wouldn't think these two would work well together but I think they did. These two didn't head straight for the bed. There was a lot of talking and getting to know each other first. Nick doesn't want to expose her people but rather share knowledge with the world. Maggie was told by several of her towns people, nearly all family, that she should not waste her time with a human but find a nice shifter male. This caused her to push Nick away but after getting to know and love him, her family couldn't even stand in the way of the man she loves. Maggie doesn't abandoned who she is and all she cares about for Nick but rather stands up for her relationship with him and is willing to risk the criticisms that comes with it. I applaud her for having the nerve to follow her heart instead of what she is told is the right shifter thing to do. Nick isn't the only one after Maggie's hand. Clay is the down home male in her town and while he's nice, you get the feeling he's hiding something. Then there is Lee with a cave man mentality, who wants Maggie's alpha position and believes her duty involves having babies and staying home. A lot of time is spent on what's Maggie's current relationship status but there is something else going on around town. Maggie's experiencing unusual car troubles and her pack members are being shot. Not to mention past troubles with another pack have come back to threaten Maggie's alpha position and the town she is duty bound to defend. The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf gives you plenty of laughs with some romance and a dash of suspense. Nick and Maggie are a hilariously cute couple and you can't help but pull for them every step of the way. Lovable characters from the first book are back. Maggie's older brother Cooper and wife Mo make appearances as well as her ever charming cousin Samson. This was a fun follow up to the first book and I really hope this isn't the last we see of the Molly Harper's shifters. -Stephanie

Fortunately, her new role as alpha female has forced her to turn over a new leaf. Being the alpha female really agrees with Maggie. She finally has an outlet into which she can pour all of her domineering qualities. Her responsibilities as pack leader are far-ranging and sometimes surprising. Maggie's duties don't just include ensuring that the wolves have a roof over their heads and food in their bellies. She also has to keep them busy through the long winter months to stop them from killing each other. So, add cruise director to her long list of obligations! Maggie's also under an enormous amount of pressure from her family to produce offspring of the werewolf variety. She seems to agree with their sentiments for the most part, that is until Nick Thatcher shows up. Nick is a hunk but of a different variety. He's a scholarly Trekkie with an interest in werewolves. Sure, when you put it that way he sounds more like a huge dork than fictional boyfriend material but Nick somehow makes geek look sexy. Aside from the occasional Star Trek quote this handsome man is smooth and has a cavalier manner. He's the yin to Maggie's yang so to speak. They compliment each other very well. Nick just absorbs all of Graham's crazy energy and cools them both down. Similar to the first novel, The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf ends on a high note with an unexpected plot twist. I was so wrapped up in the love story that I almost completely forgot about the intrigue element. It gives this tale a little bit of extra oomph. I didn't think that this book was as funny as the first one but I still got quite a few giggles out of it. Although, I did enjoy the dynamics between the main couple more this time around. Another great girlie read with a paranormal side by Molly Harper.

    I went into the book having lowered my expectations - all the reviews said so. The book was messy in a way. Maggie, brother to Cooper from the previous book is the lead for the book. When a new PhD comes in to research on werewolves, Maggie gets roped in to "handle" him. There is an attraction on both sides when they first see each other.

Which is fine and good - lovely to see a heroine whose life does not revolve around the love of their life. The problem is that too much of the going-on focuses on the alpha-stuff and the love story is a additional story. I don't get why they even love each other. I'm not shown the stage where it goes past like, lust and to love. It's a one big jump. Nick is a cardboard, albeit an handsome but a cardboard nonetheless acting as Maggie's love interest. At the end of the day, I can't even come to care about their so-called relationship. For a supposed person who fought to be an alpha, she sure is dumb. Maybe she likes being an alpha, maybe she understands the responsibilities but she doesn't seem to put them to practical use. And she keeps yelling most of the time - either at Samson, Nick or anyone (except maybe her mom). She is not likable which is fine if she could have acted with more sense and not veering towards the TSTL line. The best saving grace of this book and the reason why it ended up 3 stars is the prose. The dialogues were very witty. The world-building good. Both of these made an enjoyable read.
