Publisher's Summary

When a team of hot, rugged veteran shifters joins forces to protect and serve their kind, nothing could ever prepare them for their most important mission of all: finding their mates.  

Listen to the entire Special Ops Shifters series in one sizzling, action-packed collection! 

Book one: Daddy Soldier Bear 

As soon as I encountered Nikki, my bear went wild with need. But my mate died in childbirth years ago, and as a military trained doctor, I still beat myself up for not being able to save her. I never thought I’d love again. But the way my bear yearns for her now has me thinking otherwise. 

Book two: Fake Mate for The Soldier Lion 

God, I’ve been craving a mate for far too long. But between my tactical missions with the Special Ops Shifter Force and working my ass off, I've had no choice but to ignore the roar of my inner lion. Until the day a sassy, iron-willed lioness showed up at the Force’s secret headquarters unannounced. 

Desire surged through my veins the moment our feline eyes met, lighting every cell in my body ablaze. We weren’t recruiting, but our Alpha reluctantly agreed to deploy her on a test mission - where she and I will be posing as mates. The only problem? I know she’s my one true match. And dating within the Force is strictly forbidden. 

Will honor and duty keep my inner big cat from finally claiming what’s his? 

Book three: Captured by The Soldier Wolf 

I was sent on a covert mission to infiltrate a pack in the Rockies, but once I met the Alpha’s raging hot sister, I knew this mission was going to be a hell of a lot harder than I thought.  She’d returned to her home pack with her little boy after a messy divorce, hoping to piece together a new life. But one night deep in the forest, she overheard my phone call with the Force, leaving me no choice but to take her hostage. 

I’ve got to keep my cover and protect the integrity of the mission. But when tensions rise between that hot little wolf and I in the middle of the woods, will we be able to ignore the demands of our inner beasts? 

Book four: Christmas with The Soldier Dragon 

I’m the only shifter of my kind, never knowing the sense of family that comes with being part of a clan. The rest of my comrades are celebrating the holidays with their mates, and that only magnifies the issue. So when I was presented with a mission to investigate a mysterious case of shifter disappearances around Lake Tahoe, I jumped at the chance to get away from it all. But when I arrived, I came face-to-face with another dragon in the lake. Everything I’d known to be true was suddenly turned on its head, awakening the fire that had long been dormant in my heart. 

Finding her was the greatest Christmas gift I could’ve ever imagined. But with threats around every corner, will my dreams of finally having a mate be torn apart? 

Steamy shifter scenes inside!

4 different types of shifters but closely connected

Hang in for the first hour of narration, I almost gave up, but there’s a reason he makes the female sound so horrible. All have really great characters and uniquely different storylines. There was only one sex scene in 1st but they got better & more detailed. I’ve read several of her books & my biggest complaint is that when they shift they do it dressed & return fully dressed, that would so not truly happen. I also like hotter more consistent sex in each book. The narration by Mr Borne was really good & glad I didn’t give up on what I thought was his lack of skill, but he was in character.

Couldn’t do it

I tried to get through the first book and just couldn’t stand it any longer. The story, characters and narration are terrible. What a waste of a credit.

Wouldn't use a credit for!

This audiobook actually has four books in for one credit on Audible. Though I am not a fan of the narrator, I did enjoy a couple of the books. The first book is Daddy Soldier Bear; this is one that has some very hard subjects to listen too. This is the single parent trope, along with a few other tropes, obviously the shifter trope, there is a suspenseful romance trope to this one as well as the other three. I was on pins and needles for this particular part of the audiobook, this one I feel is probably the most suspenseful of all four of the books. I listened to the sample and thought that this series would be more than what it was, it was still a decent listen for all four books. There were things about each book that I was not a fan of, though each book was okay, I did enjoy some parts of each book. 

    The second book Fake Mate for the Solider Lion; this book is one that frustrated me for multiple reasons. This book has mulitple tropes like the other three books it has suspense, forced proximity, mates, and a mystery to be solved. However I couldn't handle the way that they two main characters interacted for a good chunk of the book. 

    Book three was a wolf shifter book called; Captured by the Soldier Wolf, this book was one that I enjoyed a little more than the others, for the most part. Forced proximity, hostiage, single mom and lone wolf tropes are all covered in this particular part of the audiobook. I may have a little bit of a soft spot for this book being set in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I enjoyed knowing a little bit about the locations that were the settings of this book.

    The last book is Christmas with the Soldier Dragon, the main reason I waited till Decemeber to listen to this book was because of this part of the audiobook. This was a little different take on the shifter series than the rest, and though I enjoyed it I felt it was lacking a little something and that this book could have had more too it. Having believed that he was the last Dragon it is interesting to see how this man, who thought he'd be alone forever handles finding a mate is interesting.

    Over all these books are all a pepper rating of Serrano Pepper, the explict scenes that are in each book are few and far between but might get you a little toasty. For this audiobook I have to rate it at a two out of 5 stars. I really wouldn't have paid for it again. If it was included in Audible then I may recommend giving at least the first book a try. If you like shifter books you may like these, they were just not to my taste.

I hope this helps you find your next Tantalizing Tome.

Romance?

When I first started this series, I was thrilled about the shifter aspect and the fact that it was a romance. Then, I listened to the entire series only to be disappointed with the lack of romance. The bulk of the plots were placed on the situations the characters found themselves in and not on the romance itself. It felt almost like the author just added in the intimate scenes later, as an afterthought. The complete lack of character growth and the speed of activity in the storyline of all the books left me feeling that a lot of the plot lines were missing. Add in the loss of extended romance scenes and all your really left with are stories of huge action and maybe a hint at some romance.

Not worth it.

Shifter Nation: Special Ops Shifters (Washington, DC)- Meg Ripley
1. Daddy Soldier Bear #1: Really good read. I was so caught up in the drama right from the beginning and the mystery of the three mates with the alpha was bugging me. I couldn't figure out what was going on for the longest time but when the story does reveal itself it takes you for a loop. I wish there was more involvement with the rest of the clan but since the series is more about the special ops team I understood it. Drake and Nikki are true mates.. there's only one problem. She already has her mates? You can tell that they have immediate chemistry. I was really sad though about her relationship with her sister and second in command to the clan.
2. Fake Mate for the Soldier Lion #2: Leona has been honorably discharged after being injured by and IED, an injury that has completely healed due to her being a shifter and can not be explained to humans. So she goes looking for something to fill the hole in her life that the military filled and ends up with SOS. A small suburban neighborhood is selling guns and need to be stopped so SOS send Hudson and Leona to pretend to be mates while they investigate. Turns out, they ARE mates, fated mates… this should be good. Two headstrong Lions, both with military background, on a case together learning how to work together and not blur the lines. It was okay, but I liked the first book better.
3. Captured by the Soldier Wolf. Another op to save another group of shifters and Flint is on the mission. There he meets Audra and her son Randy who is home from a divorce and staying with her parents and re-immersing into her pack. Only problem, the leaders of her pack are up to no good and she doesn’t know it. So Flint has to do whatever necessary to make her understand and take the alpha down whom happens to be Audra’s brother. This was probably my least favorite story of the three so far. There was no chemistry among the two characters other than a mention of being attracted to each other and there was also no mention of them being fated mates until the epilogue. I didn’t really get anything out of the story. Also, while in the first two stories, there was an explanation as to how that SOS member would remain on the team after finding his mate, there was no mention here. We know that Hudson moved to California and does the meetings via video chat and Hudson and his mate and new SOS member Leona are still at HQ but what exactly is going to happen to Flint’s position. There’s no mention at all… just a HEA without those exact words. Not cool.
4. Christmas with the Soldier Dragon. This story was just as lack luster as the other three… I really tried to give this series a chance but this one was just boring. I mean the reference to Loch Ness monster but using a different lake and changing the name was really unoriginal. I didn’t feel the chemistry with Garrison and Maren either I think that they just ended up together because they are apparently the only living dragons that they know of so far. Go figure. There was also no real concept as to why the bad guys were trying to catch Maren and what that had to do with building a casino. There was also the missing/dead shifters. Based on other shifter books I’ve read, there’s no way in the world that a shifter is attacked without shifting into their animal form and fighting back. That means that it would not make sense for Maren not to know that there were other shifters near hear or that she would necessarily be able to kill them, dragon or not. That was a little confusing for me.

All in all, this series was not my favorite. I seriously and disappointed that I spent a credit on it and spent the hours reading it.

Special Ops Shifters

I really enjoyed all for of these stories. Great characters as well as amazing chemistry. Very captivating stories that are fairly quick and addicting reads. The stories are well written with twists, surprise, romance and mystery.

Daddy Soldier Bear - I enjoyed Nikki and Drake's story! Their bears are going nuts for each other. She already has mates so she is confused about her bears reaction to Drake. Drake is a single father who lost his mate and is on a mission for the Special Ops Shifter team. He is just as confused about his bear's reaction to Nikki.

Fake Mate For The Soldier Lion -I enjoyed Leona and Hudson's story! Leona joins Hudson's Special Ops Shifter team. The chemistry is instant but there is a non-fraternization policy. These two are sent on a mission as fake mates but what are these two to do when they figure out they are true mates.

Captured By The Soldier Wolf - Flint and Audra are fated! He is on a mission and has to kidnap her to keep it quiet. The chemistry and pull between them is great. This might be my favorite story so far in the "Special Ops" series.

Christmas With The Soldier Dragon - The plot is very intriguing. Garrison, who never has felt a since of family, meets Maren whose clan has died off. Both lonely and dragon shifters get a great gift for the holiday.
