Down, Boy
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.

I jumped at the chance to listen to HOW TO RUN WITH A NAKED WEREWOLF. Anytime author Molly Harper and narrator Amanda Ronconi team up, ciaos and hilarity ensues!

Anna Moder is on the run.  She's spent years jumping from town to town, trying to keep a low profile. That is, until bounty hunter Caleb Graham practically stumbled into her life. Caleb's middle name must be trouble.  I mean she first finds him shot in a alley.  Bar fights, strip clubs, and did I mention he's a werewolf?  Not exactly the type of person that will help you stay inconspicuous.  Both characters have secrets and are running from their tangled pasts. What could possibly go wrong?

Anna and Caleb have to be my favorite of characters in this series.  I just can't believe how well they fit.  They are like puzzle pieces, always meant to fit together.  They connection was exactly what they both have been looking for, even though they realized it. The more they fight the attraction, the harder it is to stay a part. They are both drawn to each other from day one.  Each has this internal need to protect the other, no matter what.  I love how Caleb makes Anna feel safe and protected, which she's been missing in her life.  I wanted them together from the moment they first interacted! They would share a touch or a caress, and my internal fan girl would jump for joy.

Amanda Ronconi is the voice of Molly Harper for me! When I read Molly's books, I can almost her Amanda's narration.  She has an amazing ability to make the character jump right off the page.  She gives each character it's own voice and personality.  Amanda helped guide the listener through this roller coaster of emotions, like I believe no one else could.    

It's been a long time since we've visited the wolves of Crescent Valley, but it was worth the wait. I love that Molly choose to concentrate Caleb and Anna's relationship for the meat of the story, and then bring in bits and pieces from her other series. The story is a nice blend of humor, heart, and heat! Great characters back up and unique storyline. If you love witty romance, Molly Harper is your girl! I just hope she doesn't wait so long for the next installment of her Naked Werewolf Series.
