From the heartbreaking first chapter to the last I don't think I ever had a dry eye during this book. This was one emotional powerhouse of a story.

A man protects those given into his care.

Landscape designer, Beth King survived an abusive husband and built a new life for herself with the help of Master Nolan, the strongest, most protective man she has ever known. She loves him with all her heart, but the one thing he wants, she can't give him. To her grief, the damage from her abusive first marriage means she can't bear him children.

As Beth and Nolan change their plans and pursue adoption, they're already imagining a baby girl in the nursery. But when two boys from the local domestic violence shelter see their mother taken to the hospital, they call Beth in a panic. Agreeing to care for them temporarily, Beth soon falls in love with the two adorable boys.

Now Master Nolan has a new problem. How can he protect the children when their drug-addicted mother is released-and how the hell can he keep his sweet submissive's heart from being broken when they leave?

Heads-up, my dears: the story is heartwarming...yet heartbreaking due to children in a domestic violence situation.

Gotta love Nolanman and Beff . This book simply rocked. A wonderful follow up and set up for Uzuri's story! I cried my way through this book though so keep a box of tissues handy.

I absolutely and thoroughly loved and enjoyed reading the spectacular, heartbreaking and by far one of my favorite novels by the phenomenally talented Cherise Sinclair. The love between the two characters Nolan and Beth is beautiful and Nolan will do anything and everything to protect his family. Beth is trying to protect two innocent boys from being physically and mentally abused by family members. Both Nolan and Beth fall for the two little boys and want to do everything in their power to keep them safe but in the child welfare system, blood family takes precedence over all. Read the highly recommended, wonderfully written love story of Nolan, Beth, Grant, and Connor.

Love, love this author, she spins entertaining, spicy tales, HEA, and ALL the sex scenes are different so they never seem to get boring, quite and accomplishment considering how many books she has written of the sexy nature. Keep writing Cherise, your books have good plots, and quirky characters.

This was hard to read because the subject matter is touch but I couldn't put it down once I began to read. Totally engrossing and worth every penny and second of my time!!!

Beth and Nolan where two characters I loved the most; starting when Cherise originally wrote about them in Breaking Free.  I was thrilled that they were getting a second story. I think out of all of the characters, Beth has stuck with me the most.  She was so brave, and to now see her a few years later, living a life we weren’t sure she would ever have, is AMAZING.  Yet, at the same time old scars still tend to rear their ugly head; Nolan being the perfect Dom for Beth, knows how to work things out and silence the demons in her head.  Cherise writes such beautiful relationships, it’s hard not to envy these them, and wish for the closeness her couples have.  Most men are completely clueless to a woman’s emotional needs, my husband included; and have to be given step by step instructions.  Cherise writes the perfect mind reading Doms, if only real life was so simple.  Sigh. Protecting His Own is such a beautiful story adding a wonderful conclusion to Beth and Nolan’s story. At the same time, it touches on hard issues so heartbreaking, I was in tears. It also has Cherise’s standard erotic flair, and new BDSM scene I have come to look forward to in every book.  Let’s not forget the introduction of the new Masters to the Shadowlands.  There was nothing about this story I didn’t love and I wouldn’t be opposed to reading more books about past characters; I love visiting old friends.  It was truly perfect and I am giving it 5 Huge Boundless Stars.....Sara

I love this series. This is by far one of my favorites because it is so personal. Nolan and Beth are such a good couple. I can not wait for the next book in the series to come out. I have them all and I have enjoyed reading each and every one of them

WOW. Best book of the whole series. I loved how Beth & Nolan have grown today and are still so in sync with each others wants and needs. I laughed and cried and was angry. Cherise, what great writing. I feel like they are family

As always Ms. Sinclair delivers a story that touches the heart. I love that her stories are always good vs evil, and as it should be good always triumphs. That the heroes are Uber sexy doms and domes is just a bonus and the sweet, sometimes bratty subs who love them make the story complete. If you haven't read any of the Shadow land series please start today, I recommend reading them in order. Happy reading!

This is a wonderful novella by Cherise Sinclair! You'll laugh, cry (make sure you have TONS of tissues) and enjoy the glimpses of the Shadowlands community. Your heart will break, heal, and rejoice with Beth and Nolan as more of their relationship is shown. My only complaint is I wish it was longer! (Sorry, Cherise....)

Protecting His Own is predictable in that you know who the boys will end up with. All emotions are hit on in this book. Happy, sad, angry, hopeful and heartwarming. A story of becoming a family through choice and no less of one because of it.
