Logan Knight is swimming offshore when he comes across an enormous oil slick. Horrified, he goes back to his partners and reports it. They go to the headquarters of the oil company, where he spots Dallas Miles, and knows she is the only woman for him. She works for the oil company, and is in charge of the cleanup. Will they be able to work together to save their beloved ocean?
This is the fourth book in the Masters of the Deep series, and it is just getting better with each book. Delta James and Felicity Brandon together are a thing of beauty, and this series, as campy as it first sounded, is delicious. The five Heroes are loners until they meet their women, who are feisty, independent and self sufficient. Eli Green, the bad guy, is still around, and the overarching story keeps getting deeper. Because of the story line running through the series, the books are best if read in order. So worth the one click, I give this one five stars.

I received an ARC of this book and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

Reviewed in the United States on June 26, 2022
This book , like the others in the series, seemed to be such quick reads to me. I know it was because I got so involved at the very beginning and stayed that way until the end.

Logan and Dallas' romance was intense and steamy from the very beginning. It was absolutely instalove, but didn't feel that way. With so much action, danger, suspense, and Intrigue occurring, it seemed as if they had known each other much longer. Logan was immediately as protective of Dallas as each of the other SEAL'S were of their SO's.

Dallas seamlessly fit in with the rest of the team. I liked that they all accepted her so easily. I also like the way the entire group works together for the same goal, and treat each other as family.

I was holding my breath on and off during this book as I kept waiting for that other shoe to drop. This book, as well as the others, did not end on a cliffhanger. The story is not complete. Eli Green and his minions are evil. The mystery has not been solved. The danger is real and lurking around every corner. No one is safe. The suspense is next level. I am truly looking forward to Nash's book.

I suppose this book could be read as a standalone. I would suggest it be read in order. Each book very briefly mentions something from previous books, but the only way to get a full, complete picture is to read the series in order.

I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

The 4th book in this series is Logan and Dallas's story! As you can probably guess, I loved it! Logan comes upon an oil spill while out swimming in the ocean. Dallas is the chief clean up person for the oil company. When these two meet up, sparks are gonna fly. She's a sub and with him being a Dom, you just know things are gonna get heated! The story flowed so well and while this is a stand alone, I really recommend you start at the beginning because the characters are all in each of the books. These shark shifters have drawn me into their little world and I can't believe how much I really love them. And you know there is going to be danger involved. I really couldn't put the book down. I was traveling when I got this so my husband had to listen to music while I read! LOL! Such a good story and now I need Nash because I'm a little worried about him!!!

Savage Predator (Masters of the Deep Book 3)

Flynn Michaels lived for the sea and for solitude. Only his call to the Kracken eclipsed his yearning for the pull of the tide. His fellow SEALs are his family, His duty his joy.

Until she crashed into his life. And everything changed.

Savage Predator is the third book in a series of stand alones written by Delta James and Felicity Brandon. This series has been a wonderful reading experience written by two adept authors. I’ve read every book thus far and plan to continue until its conclusion. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself.

This book is the story of Flynn and Devon, two very strong individuals who come together to create something special and worthwhile in their lives, despite the dangers lurking around the corner of their perception. In this romance Devon knows just how to treat Flynn and Flynn reciprocates in kind. This was such a fun read!

As is usual with these two authors the story is cleanly written and keeps the reader’s attention throughout. The world building is very concise, the plot engaging and the characters fully fleshed out and interesting. And as is usual with these two authors I highly recommend their work!

Simply love this series! The men are to die for - all growly, controlling, and protective; and the women are strong, intelligent, and submit only to their man. Flynn and Devon are no exception, and they meld seamlessly into the storyline that has it all: intrigue, suspense, bad guys to hate, and gripping enough to have the reader salivating for what comes next. Great series!

A lot of unanswered questions but I guess as this series keeps going I will get the answers. Again a little bit of spanking yes, a little bit of dominance yes but some of the other stuff what is it BDSM OR BSDM is okay for others but not my cup of tea per say. But this is definitely a good story a great mystery. I am still having a hard time understanding were they created (shark shifters) are just like wolf shifters was it in their genes to shift into sharks? Does Nash gets his own book? I hope the next book answers these questions and more.

Flynn, along with a secret group of shark shifters, is an Oceanic Whitetip Shark whose sole purpose is to protect the secrets hidden within the USS Kraken.

Devon entered Annapolis right after high school. She immediately attended law school and quickly graduated from Officer Training. Now, she is being asked to fly to Mexico to investigate the death of Admiral Warrenton. Once she arrives in Mexico, Devon is unacceptably waylaid by Schumacher, the same man the shark shifters distrust immensely.

Flynn is immediately fascinated by Devon. He is hoping for a one-night stand. Since Devon is completely, surprisingly, interested in Flynn, she allows her submission to react to his dominance and they find their attraction is way more than either of them expected. WOW! Their connection is Hotter than Hot!!!
The problem faced by the shifters and Devon is to try to determine what Schumacher and another deviant, Eli Green, are working on.

This is an exciting, dangerous and intriguing story. I love the way Devon allows her submission to immediately answer to Flynn’s overpowering dominance. They both have dominant day time personalities, but when they interact outside of work areas---WOW! I cannot wait to read more.

Fierce Predator

The story continues with Zak and Trinity as the stars. Trinity is working as a diver and ocean biologist with an emphasis on Sharks when she meets Zak. Zak, well, we all know what Zak’s main job is! As a couple, the steam is hot and hotter! Another HFN.

Reluctant Retiree

Book Blurb:

It was only supposed to be a brief liaison. One blistering visceral connection.

Trinity should never have wanted more, Should never have wanted him… Zak was as sexy as hell, but there was something fierce about him. Something dangerous that called to her. Something lurking in the depths that took her breath away.

She wasn’t falling for him. Trinity didn’t need a man. But this time, she had to wonder, Had she bitten off more than she could chew?

Trinity Dare drops into the Rusty Pelican for a good burger and a one-night stand, no names, simply a one-time hot episode. A one and done. No name Zak fills the bill but demands more from Trinity. Not at all interested, she runs at the first opportunity. Trinity is a shark expert and tour guide for Ocean Adventures. Zak, a shark shifter who guards the Kacken, literally runs into her in the Sea Of Cortez as she is engaging in a shark excursion. Later they meet again at a dinner party on a yacht. While she is a guest, Zak is there as a guard and he recognizes her immediately. The chemistry between Zak and Trinity is fierce. However, Zak does not believe in power exchange of submission. Only he has the power; he would command and she would cede. They are also working at cross purposes. He wants Trinity to prove her loyalty before he opens up to her and share he’s feelings while Trinity is waiting for him t show her some affection and caring so that she can trust him. In order to teach Trinity a lesson for disobedience, impertinence and insolence, he decides to cage her. Her nightmare of being horribly tortured and caged by a cartel in the Mexican jungle comes screaming back. This is a line that Zak was going to regret crossing.
The plot adds another layer to the continuing mystery involving the Kacken. Trinity witnesses her boss, Barry Driscoll owner of Ocean Adventures and Schumacher, Zak and his shark shifter team’s troublesome handler, together during the dinner party. Trinity sees them sneaking some merchandise off the yacht during the function. Somehow Barry and Schumacher are connected in what appears to be some nefarious dealings. There are some racy, spicy scenes between Trinity and Zak which keeps the reader engaged.
Great story and can’t wait for the next one!

I'm not a fan of sharks but that said............this series has me hooked. I love shifters of all kinds and honestly, never really gave shark shifters a thought but when two of my favorite authors come up with this idea and start writing it, I can't help but give in, settle down and enjoy the ride that is Masters of the Deep! I loved Mason and Shiloh in the first book but Zak and Trinity in this one is off the charts hot!! If you don't like rough sex, kinky sex and a dominant alpha shifter, well, you're missing a really good story. You can feel the sexual tension between the characters so that means I couldn't put the book down. There is a running theme throughout each book so far and I have a feeling we won't get ALL the answers until the last book but hey, that's what awesome writers do. Do I want the answers? Yes! Will I read each book to get the answers? Of course! These two ladies have outdone themselves with this series and I'm sitting here eagerly waiting for the next book!!!

Silent Predator: Masters of the Deep Book 1

The intrigue in this book and series will draw you in from the very first page. Ms. James and Ms. Brandon have created a most puzzling world here. There is mystery woven through every chapter.

Shiloh Whitaker has but one purpose in her heart, prove that her mother didn’t commit suicide, but was instead murder. With this in mind, she has obtained a doctorate in Marine Biology and is a renown treasure hunter. It wasn’t until she received a mysterious envelope from her recently deceased father that her mind was made up. Now all she needed was to find that forgotten sunken ship, the USS Kracken.

Mason Lockheart lives a double life. By day he’s a highly decorated Navy Commander in the SEALs. By night? By night he’s a Great White Shark shifter, tasked to follow in his father’s footsteps and protect the USS Kracken and the secrets she took to her watery grave. He, along with 4 other male Shark shifters, will give their lives if needed, to protect that secret.

When their paths cross deep beneath the sea, who knows what will become of them both….

The Book Blurb

A predator prowls the Sea of Cortez, protecting a mystery that has been kept silent for almost a century—damning information that some are still willing to kill for.

Mason Lockheart is a highly decorated Navy SEAL with a mission that he can never reveal to anyone… even the curvy redhead who’s determined to bring everything up from the depths of the sea. Mason’s family has been part of a clandestine patrol since the USS Kracken went down. He has taken on a solemn duty to protect its final resting place and its covert mission.

Twenty years ago, Shiloh Whitaker’s mother was murdered to keep her from revealing what she knew. As a child, Shiloh watched as her mother’s killers got away, running from her home into the black of the night. Now later, she’s a celebrated marine biologist and treasure hunter, but her real calling is to find the Kracken and prove her mother’s suicide was anything but.

When Mason spots Shiloh’s submersible lurking in the dangerous waters around the Kracken, he tries to frighten her away. But Shiloh doesn’t scare so easily—even if the thing that sends her sub to the surface has rows and rows of razor -sharp teeth. Something about Shiloh calls to Mason in a way he’s never known before. Determined to pursue a passion he doesn’t truly understand while still upholding his oath, he follows Shiloh into a storm that could destroy them both.

When the truth is revealed, will Shiloh betray Mason and the Kracken, or will all of the secrets of his heart be safe with her?

This is the first book in the Masters of the Deep series by Delta James and Felicity Brandon.
This is Mason Lockhart (highly decorated Navy SEAL) and Shiloh Whitaker (marine biologist and treasure hunter) story. The quote below is what just fascinated me to read this extraordinary book.

A predator prowls the Sea of Cortez, protecting a mystery that has been kept silent for almost a century—damning information that some are still willing to kill for.

He has a mission that he can never reveal to anyone. Mason’s family has been part of that mission to protect the USS Kracken ever since it went down to its final resting place at the bottom of the sea and its covert mission.

Twenty years ago, Shiloh's mother was murdered, she watched as 3 hooded men ran away and since then Shiloh has spent her adult life trying to prove it, as well as her mother's theory about the USS Kraken. These two met in a bar in La Jolla, CA, well the chemistry is just off the charts. They spend the night together, both have secrets, they go their own way in the morning, him telling her to stay put, he would be back. Needless to say she leaves and begins her search to prove her mother theory. They meet again whilst he is guarding the Kraken as a great white shark, and when he finds Shiloh in a small submarine searching the wreckage site! The more they interact with each other the more they want from each other. Will they be able to sort out all their feeling toward each other? Will the truth come out? In this book you will find a very alpha male (great white shark) and a very feisty female who shows guts and determination in the face of adversity. Brilliant read!!!
Rhonda Hicks rated it it was amazing
Delta James and Felicity Brandon have conspired to create a first-time read for me and it's amazing! 'Silent Predator' is the first book in their new series "Masters of the Deep". If you've read the blurb then you know Mason Lockheart is a decorated Navy SEAL. He's also a great white shark shifter. He and four other shark shifters, like their fathers before them, have the duty of patrolling and protecting the sunken USS Kracken from interlopers. It's a rather singular life between career and duty. Shiloh knows what she saw twenty years ago when those three masked men left her house. Her mother didn't commit suicide and she intends to prove it. All she needs to do is locate the USS Kracken and get the physical evidence to prove her mother's theory in order to do so. These two characters hare on a collision course from the very beginning. Both are strong personalities, both dedicated to what they believe is right. Of course, with these two authors, you know there's bound to be domestic discipline. Yeah, this was all determination then hot chemistry and explosive scenes along with a mystery trying to be solved, and then the sleaze-ball I didn't give a second thought about decided to show his hand. Now I'm wondering how he exactly fits into the picture. Just a side note of curiosity. Do sharks bite and convert their mates?? Interesting concept, don't you think?

I'm a huge fan of shifter stories. You know, wolves, bears, big cats, dragons but I never thought I would like a shark shifter! I don't like sharks but with this book, I think I could easily become a fan. Delta James and Felicity Brandon have teamed up to write Silent Predator and all I can say is wow! Mason is a shark shifter and military guy who is tasked (along with a few others) to protect a sunken ship that seems to hold secrets about WWII that some people don't want found. Shiloh is a professor but is leaving to see if she can figure out why her mother was killed years ago. This story, from the very start, pulled me in. The attention to historical detail was wonderful and the descriptions of Mason when he shifted was something I could easily picture in my mind. Will Mason be able to stop Shiloh from snooping around? Can he keep her safe? Oh, don't miss this book. If you love shifters, this is one that you will love!
