Description

The Northern Pines Den series is an mpreg shifter series about found families, finding joy after pain, and the yummy scents of fated mates!  

The Northern Pines Den of bears found a solid ally in the newly formed Northern Lodge wolf pack, and together they face a foe as fierce as she is evil: the den Alpha’s estranged sister.

Through their connection with the wolves, the den finds mates who breathe new life into their traditional ways. Though opening their hearts leaves them easy targets for their enemies, the den will do whatever it takes to protect their own.

This three audiobook bundle contains the first three books in this best-selling series and is guaranteed to give a serious case of the feels! 

Included:

Alpha’s Hearts - Fated Mates! When the wolf pack and the bear den initiate an exchange program to help shifters find their fated mates, adventurous omega Taylor is the first to volunteer, drawing the attention of the den’s lonely alpha, Mikael. Mikael knows the tiny, colorful omega will either breathe new life into their stilted bear community or cause an outrage. Either way, it won't be boring to have him around. 

Alpha’s Mates - When the former soldier, alpha jaguar Jules, scents the kidnapped omega bear Colin, he will do anything to save his mate. Thankfully, protective, alpha wolf Sean witnessed the kidnapping, and he is equally as determined to bring Colin home. When the two scent each other in their quest to save Colin, they realize they were not blessed with just one mate, but two...if they can manage to save Colin in time.

Alpha’s Strength - Omega jaguar Diego is fleeing an arranged marriage to the safety of his cousin Jules' new home, not realizing he is running straight into the arms of fate. Alpha heir to the den, Stefan, loves everything about the little, bratty looking omega, even the arrogant glare he levels at Stefan when he catches the alpha eyeballing him. Yet the rogue war rages on, and none of their lives remain untouched by its shadow.  

These audiobooks are all intended for 18+ readers only. It's advised to listen the series in order for maximum appreciation. And yes, this bundle contains mpreg, knotting, adults adulting in sexy, naughty ways, and way more than the occasional use of potty mouth language!

Caution: contains violent scenes and mentions of death as the pack is at war.

A cute threesome

Altogether, these first stories in the series are pretty cute together. These are the stories of Mikael the Alpha bear of the Northern Pines Den, and Taylor, his omega from the Northern Lodge wolf pack; of Jules the former soldier and alpha jaguar (oddly pronounced 'jagwire' throughout the second two stories) shifter and his two mates, alpha wolf shifter Sean (Taylor's older brother) and omega bear shifter Colin; and of Alpha heir Stefan (Mikael's cousin) and his omega jaguar shifter Diego (Jules's cousin). I like the way the three stories are connected...Taylor and Mikael meet as a result of an agreement between their two communities to exchange visits in an effort to strengthen the alliance as well as to find fated mates for the single omegas. After Taylor and Mikael meet and bond, the subplot is introduced, and THAT story -- of Mikael's shunned sister Yvonne and her band of rogue shifters intent on killing the true Alpha and usurping his position in the Northern Pines Den -- is what brings the other two sets of lovers together in their own stories. The usual inevitable connection once the fated mate is scented is followed almost immediately by a mating which unerringly ends with pregnancy and the birth of young.

What differentiates these stories from each other is the omega, first of all. Each shifter has a unique personality; none of them is meek or submissive, and all are engaging. Taylor is sassy, flamboyant, and unapologetic in the face of intolerance. Colin is large and in charge of his life in the face of a sudden, devastating loss. Diego is decisive and courageous in the face of danger. In the case of the second story, the fact that it's a triad is an added difference between the stories. I applaud the narrator for his handling of what had to be a pretty challenging performance since he had to voice all the parts. I detected what sounded like a Southern accent (Taylor, and Sean to a lesser extent), a Russian one (not particularly convincingly done for Mikael) and a Spanish one (for Jules and Diego).

Thoroughly enjoyable...

This book includes the first three stories of the Northern Pines Den series. The first, Alpha Hearts introduced us to the premise of an exchange involving bear and wolf shifters to aid in the 'true mate' quest. Meeting Taylor persuaded me to see where this story traveled. I'm glad that it did. I enjoyed the antics of Taylor and the influence that he had on his mate, bear Alpha Mikael. Taylor and Mik's story was the best of the three (in my opinion). The next story, Alpha's Mates, between Jules, Sean, and Colin was interesting and though I liked the build up, the ending was a bit anticlimactic, which one would question with three fated mates and then 3 cubs in the end. What I did like about this story was that though Colin is a omega, he was equal in everyway. Of course this can be said with all three stories which involves strong omega's. Typical stories find the omega's needing rescue and not really having a sense of self; however, the approach taken by Susi Hawke was to show that just because this particular type of shifter gives birth, doesn't mean that they are weak minded, weak spirited, and weak physically...a perfect representation of the real world with the "Me Too" movement. The final story, Alpha's Strength, with Diego and Stefan, continues representing that the omega is more than what most shifter stories imply. I think that is why I enjoyed this series as much as I did.

Love hearing these characters come to life!

Susi Hawke’s Northern Pines Den series is one of my favorite mpreg series to date. These books have fun and entertaining characters and stories with an overall series arc that adds a dramatic feel to the love and humor. John Solo is the perfect narrator to bring these characters to life. He gives an entertaining and dynamic performance, successfully emphasizing nuances between different characters’ voices, accents, and personalities. Looking forward to listening to the rest of the series in audio too!

Totally Worth The Credit.

This bundle was totally worth my credit. The storylines and series has been very gratifying. SH is one of my favorite authors, she has a talent in her writing. This series has it all. Love, loss, healing, teamwork, shifting, loyalty, drama. The narration of this series was fantastic. I hope it will continue with one of its character getting what's coming to them with a horrible vengeance. I look forward in the continuation of this series, and for them all to becoming available on adubile. I am totally invested in this series and, highly recommend it.

it's okay

I listened to it because I bought it. honestly, this book has no character growth, very boring settings and story plot. All three books where trying to be different from one another except, they all had the same thing. Beginning Same, middle " climax" , end all the same . the world building was not creative at all.

Excellent series!

Loved this entire series by Susi Hawke and narrated by John Solo who is becoming one of my favorite narrators! Both author and narrator joined together to bring us this great series! Loved all three books and I would have to say that these are now my favorite books by Susi Hawke!

Loved it all!

Overall: 4.75 Stars!

Alpha's Heart

4.5 Stars

This series is a spin-off from the Northern Lodge series, and while it probably would make it easier to understand some of the events described in the first few chapters, it can be read (or listened to) as a standalone series.

While I will admit I wasn't too sure about Taylor at first, he grew on me and I ended up loving him, he truly was the perfect mate for strong alpha Mikhail, who was amazing and very supportive of his unique mate. They were not only hot together, but they seemed so well suited for one another. I'm looking forward to seeing (or listening) more about them and little Alec in the next installments of the series.

I absolutely adored Steffan and I was very glad to find out his book is the third one in this series and included in this bundle! And while Peter and Walter were a bit of an acquired taste after how they both treated Taylor, I was glad to see them being nicer to him later on.

There's an ongoing arc with Mikhail's sister and I can't wait to see how it will unfold. While I haven't met her yet, she appears to be quite unhinged and it shall make for an interesting turn.

John Solo's narration was outstanding! He gave all the characters a unique voice and gave the story that extra-something that made it even better.

I adored this first book. I actually found myself laughing out loud or crying in certain scenes and I'm looking forward to learning more about this world where bear and wolf shifters live in relative harmony.

Alpha's Mates

4 Stars

The second book in the series features Jules, a jaguar shifter, Sean, a wolf shifter and Taylor's older brother, and Colin, a bear shifter.

While I enjoyed it, I found one of the sex scenes a bit jarring, I guess I could say it was BDSM lite, but I wasn't expecting it and quite frankly, I like to be prepared or in the mood when reading those kinds of scenes. Other than that, I found this triad to be very balanced and the three of them had great chemistry. I didn't feel like any of them felt dispensable, which is always good in this kind of books.

The ongoing plotline with Mikhail's sister is very interesting and I can't wait to see more of Tommy in subsequent books. While he's a mercenary, and not very clean at that, he seemed to be a good man and could be a great asset for the den.

John Solo is outdoing himself with these series, his voice is very enjoyable and damn, if his accent for Jules didn't make the room's temp go up a notch or two! ;)

Alpha's Strength
5 Stars!

This third installment was the book I was looking forward to the most. I adored Steffan on the first two books and seeing him with Diego was just icing on the cake. They were just so well-suited for one another. Diego was a totally kickass omega and well, Steffan was his own lovable, fun self, I just adore that he's so real. Diego and Steffan had chemistry in spades and their lovemaking was hot, hot, HOT!

I'm enjoying the ongoing storyline with Mikhail's sister. Even if I haven't met her yet, she's wrecked a lot of havoc already. Hope she gets her comeuppance soon.

And this was another fantastic narration by John Solo! If you have the chance to pick this bundle in audiobook, I can assure you won't be disappointed, it's definitely one of my favorites of his.

A really good bundle of stories

This was a really great bundle of stories to listen to.
I loved getting to back to Northern Pine to visit with these shifters.

Book 1: Alphas Heart
The fiesty omega finally meets his match with the alpha who accepts him as he is. There is danger that comes and they need to rally to fight it.

The narration in this one was done very well and I really enjoyed listening to this.

Book 2: Alphas Mates
When a kidnapping leads to the bear omega finding his mates, he didnt expect to find two of them. This was a mating of bear, wolf and jaguar which made it quite unique as they all came together.

The narration was okay, Colin's voice really didnt work well for me in this one though.

Book 3: Alphas Strength
A fleeing omega runs straight into his alpha. But danger still lurks and that sets the pace of this story.

The narration was enjoyable but I felt that Diegos voice needed a bit more work here.

Overall, this was a lovely bundle to listen to. With good characters, danger, action and a great sense of pack.

I enjoyed the stories

This was interesting listen, I enjoyed the 3 book bundle. I haven't listened to the previous books set in Northern Pines world, but I don't think it made my ability to enjoy these stories any less. I found the stories get better with next one better that the previous book. I thought the first story was ok, I liked the second story a lot and loved 3rd story. Narrator did an amazing job bringing all the characters to life and making each of them sound different. I am looking forward to other stories set in Northern Pines Den.

The Alphas of Northern Pines den

This series deals with all types of shifters, wolves, bears, jaguars... The den Alpha Mikael is the first one to find his mate in the beginning of a war with his crazy sister. Tyler is so much fun. The second book stars Sean and his two mates, Julian and Collin. There's action, suspense and a lot of love. When Julian's cousin comes ruuning away from his family he finds solace in Stephan, the heir Alpha. The omegas are sexy and feisty and regal, while the Alphas strong and protective yet vulnerable. I enjoyed listening to this bundle.
