The Northern Lodge Pack series is an mpreg shifter series about found families, finding joy after pain, and the yummy scents of fated mates!
The Blurb: Northern Lodge Pack was founded when one brave alpha and his ragtag group of buddies went on a mission to rescue his twin sister – an omega who was being held as a captive sex-slave by an evil alpha.
The Alpha and his buddies found five other omegas in the evil alpha’s harem – and rescued them all. Along the way, the omegas are reunited with children they’d birthed in captivity and thought were lost to them forever.
This 391 page bundle contains the first three books in this best selling series – all books are fully re-edited, freshly formatted, and guaranteed to give a serious case of the feels!
Omega Stolen – Fated Mates! Sold into captivity by his own cruel father, Kai is rescued by the sexy Alpha. Who knew Jake would smell like… his mate. This is the book that started it all. Get ready for a roller coaster of an emotional ride.
Omega Remembered – What happens when your worst enemy is also your fated mate?
Aries is finally reunited with the two toddlers that were ripped from his arms at birth by the evil alpha. Too bad the alphahole that found them is the last alpha on earth that Aries wants to see… or smell.
Omega Healed – Friends… to lovers? Sy knows that his old friend Seth smells like his mate. Seth is sweet to Sy’s daughter, sexy AF, and pretty much everything an alpha should be… if one were in the market for an alpha. Before Sy can accept his mate, he first needs to heal from the wounds of the past.
These books are all intended for 18+ readers only. They contain adults adulting in naughty, knotty ways and enough potty mouth language to make a sailor blush. Possible triggers for mentions of past assault, although no scenes of sexual assault are seen, also, there is one quite satisfactory scene of the quite violent deaths of two very bad people.

MMy Thoughts and Review:
I read this (book #1) a while back and loved it. Having John Solo do the narration is a true delight. I absolutely love Jake and Kai, the story’s MCs. I am always a sucker for fated mates, because (at least in S. Hawke’s books) it means the universe loves you enough to fashion the perfect mate for you. It doesn’t take away your free will, as some would claim, but rather is more like finding your soul’s other half. You can turn down, walk away, find someone else, etc. So your free will is still there and I just love that. But to know, one was made to complete, compliment, and bind with your soul is just magical.
In book #1 Kai along with a group of other omegas are rescued by Jake and a small band of alphas. The leader of the group, Jake was on a mission to rescue his twin sister. He had no idea he would find so many omegas being held against their will, some underage, and forced to lie with the local pack alpha when they had their first heat.
Jake and the other alphas steal Kai and the omegas away North, to a place they will all be safe.
In true Susi Hawke fashion there is some knottiness, sweet romance, a misfit group of secondary characters to love, and a bit of danger.
Book one is a little heavier and darker in places than books two and three. However, those scenes are necessary to move the plot forward.
There is a sweet ending for the couple and the pack as a whole.
Book #2 lets us get to know the omega Aries a little more. His backstory before he was kidnapped by the horrible pack alpha was almost as tragic and sad as his time spent under the malicious Alpha’s “care.” His story to finding his mate and having his past losses restored to him are bittersweet.
Book #3 Two years have come and gone since Alpha Jake rescued the group of omegas from the local tyrannical pack alpha. He and his alpha buddies took the small group North where they would be safe. One of the omegas rescued, Simon, happened to have been childhood friends with two of the alphas in the rescue party. Simon also happened to be very pregnant at the time of the rescue.
Now Simon and alpha Seth have a problem, or so Simon thinks. They are fated mates, and while Simon might be able to handle them being friends, he won’t ever be able to fully trust an alpha again. So any future Seth might see for them is never going to happen…unless Seth and perhaps some close omega friends can help change Simon’s heart and mind.
You absolutely cannot go wrong with these sweet stories. They will fill you with smiles and squishy feelings that just make you happy. **sigh… I love HAPPY! 💖🌈💖
