The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf (Naked Werewolf #2)
Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stoneâ��s throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valleyâ��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 rese...more
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. Being an alpha female without an alpha male by her side, forced her to have an edge, be a bit gruff, and I think Molly Harper did a great job rounding out her character. Maggie was fierce, but melted and...more
3.5 stars but I am rounding up.
This is such a fun series. Laugh out loud funny, but not mean funny and not stupid funny – just funny. The first in this series, How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf, is funnier, sweeter and just a better book. 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 fa...more
Molly Harper books are just plain funny. If you're wanting an easy, light and cleaver read, her books are perfect. That being said, I didn't love this book as much as the first in this series, "How to Flirt With a Naked Warewolf."
Maggie, the heroine, was introduced in the first book as Cooper's sister. (He was the werewolf hero then.) Quite frankly, she wasn't very likable back then, and she wasn't very likable in this book. She was a tough, scrappy, alpha-female that could easily kick fellow w...more
I wish the title of this had been different. Something like "the art of seducing and ornerier (testy) werewolf" or something to that effect would have been a bit better fitting, I think.
The first thing that really excited me about this book was the female alpha. We so rarely see that. But it didn't quite play out as well as I thought it might. She didn't come across as powerful as male werewolves tend...more
All of Molly Harper's lovable characters are back for the second installment in her Naked Werewolf series. This book sticks to the same cute, fun elements that I enjoyed so much in How To Flirt With A Naked Werewolf but instead stars Maggie as the lead character. At first I was a little worried as to whether this was a good choice for the main protagonist; in the previous novel she provided some comic relief but overall Maggie was a confrontational, hard-headed b*$@#. Fort...more
And like a younger sister might, the book kinda sits in the shadow of its older, better looking brother in almost every way. A lot of the ingredients I loved so much from book one are in evidence, just a little dulled; the shine taken off them a wee bit....more
Maggie, the werewolf alpha heroine of The Art of Seducing is a very different sort of character from Mo, the viewpoint character of How to Flirt. Whereas Mo is funny, insightful, and charming, Maggie is much more negative and much less emotionally mature. I found myself getting very...more
Molly Harper has created such a unique world with her Naked Werewolf series, and this second book is just as funny, romantic, and sexy as the first. Somehow, even though this is a light, easy read, Ms. Harper manages to make the characters, both shifters and humans, complex people who we can't help but love.
Seriously, if you're looking for books to take on vacation, a day at the beach, or just hanging out at home and don't want something that's going to make your head explode with drama and ang...more
As the alpha, Maggie must set a good example to the other werewolves. The were line is in jeopardy of dying out and t...more
This book deals with Cooper's sister Maggie. If you remember, Maggie was made alpha of the pack at the end of How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf. It's only been a few months since then and Maggie ti still de...more
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...more
An author finally puts a female alpha in charge and has to make her a violent, mean tempered, *itch. Soooo, Maggie definitely didn't do much to endear herself to me. N...more
“Eva seemed to be on some sort of mission to work her evil/cute baby magic on me. Ever since she'd started toddling around on those chubby little legs, she'd been targeting me, the least enthusiastic baby person in the room. I think she enjoyed the challenge, which proved that we were related....more
Eva would tug on my pants leg until I picked her up. And then she'd basically stare me down with those big blue-grey eyes of hers, daring me not to snuggle her. It was like facing down a tiny, diapered mast

I've been reading a bunch of serious stuff lately, and was in need of a Molly Harper story. Having read everything else she's written I decided to download this one. I really enjoyed this book which "stars" the super snarky little sister of former alpha wolf of "T...more
Actual Rating 3.75
What I Loved: If ever there was a book boyfriend for me, it is Nick! He is smart, geeky (talking Star Trek and may have invented a game similar to WOW-geeky), research nerd, and all around hottie (forgiving that blonde thing, I just ignored it)! I fell in love from the moment he hit the page and never looked back. Loved that he knew that he wanted Maggie from the beginning and never was ashamed of that. Oh sure, he was adorably awkward at times and sometimes blu...more

My main problem with this book was the lack of time spent around the relationship between the main character (Maggie) and the man she finishes up with. The romantic relationship seemed to come together very suddenly; one minute she was pushing him away, the next they were mated and madly in love. I feel I missed a chunk in between (maybe I did?)
I really trie...more
Interesting thing about this new series by Molly Harper....these books are written in first person POV, but the first book is written by Mo (non werewolf with a killer sense of humor), and the second book is written in Maggie's POV (she is now the female alpha leader of her werewolf pack). This is the first time I have seen a series where the books are being told in first person POV by different characters, with very different "voices." Part...more
But I think that the romance between werewolf alpha Maggie and naturalist/were-seeker Nick worked even better for me than the one between Maggie's brother Cooper and hippie's child Mo in the first book. Mostly because, even with its stops and starts, Maggie is no where near as angsty as Cooper. It also helped b...more
Paranormal Romance – March 29th, 2011
The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper is an entertaining romp of a read. It is the second in the author's new werewolf series set in Alaska and features the newest alpha female named Maggie Graham. The first book was How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf. Although many beloved characters return in this book it can easily be read by itself.
Maggie has always had a sense of purpose in her lif...more
Fortunately, this book was written with the same humor and wit that Molly Harper is known for writing. You all know that I love snark and this book is full of it. I love how Maggie interacts with both Nick (she is constantly giving him a hard time about his nerd-ish ways) and with Samson. I got more giggles out of Maggie's comments to Samson than I think anything else in the book.
Unfortunately, while this made the book fun to read, it was the only thing that seemed to hit the right not...more
This is the 2nd book in the "Naked Werewolf" series. This book focuses on Maggie and her ability to run the pack as the Alpha. Maggie is reluctant to be mated & everyone once to help to get her mated. Problem is everyone that is interes...more
Maggie Graham has a lot of responsibility on her shoulders as alpha of the Crescent Valley werewolf pack near the small town of Grundy, Alaska. She has to run her pack, protect them, and, sometime in the future - the further away the better, get mated so she could birth a few pups to help increase the numbers of her threatened species. The responsibilities of an alpha were those she felt she was best suited for after her brother Cooper abdicated his position years ago and...more
I had a dark sense of humor, even then.
