Naked Werewolves? Yes, Please! Review of Molly Harper's "Naked Werewolf" series!

Do you know how to flirt with a werewolf?  Or how to seduce a werewolf?  Especially if they are naked?

Author Molly Harper does, and she shares her secrets in her two new books, "How To Flirt With A Naked Werewolf" and "The Art of Seducing A Naked Werewolf"

About The Books:

How To Flirt With A Naked Werewolf:

Even in Grundy, Alaska, it’s unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem. Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham—who has been openly critical of Mo’s ability to adapt to life in Alaska—has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble.
For Cooper, an Alpha in self-imposed exile from his dysfunctional pack, it’s love at first sniff when it comes to Mo. But Cooper has an even more pressing concern on his mind. Several people around Grundy have been the victims of wolf attacks, and since Cooper has no memory of what he gets up to while in werewolf form, he’s worried that he might be the violent canine in question.

If a wolf cries wolf, it makes sense to listen, yet Mo is convinced that Cooper is not the culprit. Except if he’s not responsible, then who is? And when a werewolf falls head over haunches in love with you, what are you supposed to do anyway? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated!

The Art of Seducing A Naked Werewolf:

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.

I absolutely fell in love with both of these books. Molly Harper is a brilliantly funny writer, and her humor shines through in these fun, action-filled stories.

Normally, I'm not a huge fan of paranormal books (vampires, werewolves, zombies, etc.), but these two books are so well written with such great storylines, that you almost - Almost - forget that the main male (Cooper in the first book) character is a werewolf.  And what a sexy werewolf he is!

In "The Art of Seducing ...," Molly's character of Maggie Graham, the female alpha leader of the werewolf pack is a strong, fiesty gal who is just a hoot to read about!  Seeing Maggie go ga-ga in love with the nosy Nick Thatcher is just a delight!

If you are looking for a good, light-hearted fun book to read, check out these books, and any of Molly's other books - you'll be so glad you did! I know I am!
