"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... "
This is the second book in the series, and it was a really great read. The main character is Maggie, who seemed like a huge bitch in the first book. I found that Maggie has a lot of character growth through out this book, especially if you compare it to book 1 (How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf). It has an interesting whodunit that will make you want to keep reading until you are finished. You do not have to read book 1 to read this book, though it might be helpful so you know who the characters are. Book one focuses on Maggie's brother and his love interest, while this book focuses on Maggie and her love interest.
I would not say this is a very different paranormal novel compared to others out there, though with Molly Harper's humor and mystery it will make the reading fast and keep your interest.
