Maggie Graham has got a problem. As alpha to a pack of werewolves, it is part of her job to keep them a secret from the rest of the world. Usually, it isn't that difficult as a small town in Alaska isn't a big draw for most people. But unfortunately, due to events that took place in the previous book, their neck of the woods has drawn the attention of a very dangerous individual. Nick Thatcher is dangerous because he is intelligent, likable, and very cute not to mention very determined to find proof of werewolves. No matter what she does, Nick doesn't want to leave. In fact, he wants to spend even more time with Maggie. Then strange things start happening and it seems that there is a group of werewolves that want to push Maggie and her pack out. What's a girl/wolf to do but figure out how to solve her problems before love slips away?
If you haven't discovered Molly Harper, than you are missing out on the funniest writer I have come across! If you love the laugh then you need to get on board the Harper bandwagon, stat! I was an immediate fan after I read the first page of her Jane Jameson series and How to Seduce a Naked Werewolf didn't disappoint in the slightest. This is a funny, make that laugh-out-loud-husband-asks-why-you-are-laughing-and-you-have-to-read-it-out-loud-to-him book. Maggie is Cooper's sister, who we met in How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf. Maggie became the alpha of their pack after Cooper left. Maggie didn't take his defection well and made herself completely unlikable in the process. But Mo straightened her out and they are good friends now. Maggie is going about her life, keeping things running smoothly in her valley. She is under some pressure to mate and start having babies now that Cooper has done it. But all in all, it is business as usual. Until, Nick Thatcher arrives, and then things get complicated. There is a wonderful chemistry between Nick and Maggie. They are attracted to each other, as you would expect since this is a paranormal romance. But what sets it apart, for me, is that from the beginning Nick is a beta hero. He isn't all broody and angst-ridden. He is who he is. Yes, he has some baggage but just an all around, cute, smart, sexy guy. He doesn't come across as weak or stupid because of it. I just love that kind of hero and you don't see them often. The supporting cast is a quirky crowd that you would love to meet in real life. Oh, if only small towns really were that cool. This is a great book to lose yourself in and I spent a lovely weekend devouring it. The only negative I have found is that it made me want to go to Alaska and see if I can find a werewolf, but I think my husband would object. Now to sit back and hope that Ms. Harper will be blessing us with another book, quick!
Baring It All
Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stone’s throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valley’s pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg. Maggie just can’t seem to convince Nick to leave . . . and even worse, she can’t convince herself to stay away from him. Cross-species dating is problem enough for a harried alpha female, but on top of that, a rival group of werewolves is trying to move into the valley. With interpack war threatening, Maggie can’t afford to be distracted. Combining romance and a career can be tough for anyone; for a werewolf in love with a human, it may be disastrous. . . .
