wolf

Here is my best explanation:

'seducer' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'first of letters penned by women concerning' is the wordplay.
'first of' suggests taking the first letters.
'penned by' is an insertion indicator.
'women' becomes 'w'.
'concerning' becomes 'of'.
The initial letter of 'letters' is 'l'.
'w'+'of'='wof'
'l' placed within 'wof' is 'WOLF'.
