Publisher's Summary

“Once a f--k up, always a f--k up.” 

Words 26-year-old Dante Thorne has had to live with for more years than he can count and a title he finally earned at the tender age of 16, when one careless decision led to tragedy. And since he can’t deny the truth of the words, why not live by them instead? F--king up, f--king, it doesn’t matter as long as it feels good and makes him forget the day he failed the one person he’d always sworn to protect. A good philosophy to live by, until Dante meets the one man who might actually have him wishing he was something more....

At 41, and with a distinguished career as a Texas Ranger under his belt, Magnus DuCane should have been in the prime of his life. Instead, he’s mourning the loss of the daughter he couldn’t save and contemplating a future that looks nothing like the one he had planned. The only bright spot in his life is the young grandson who has suddenly been returned to him after going missing two years earlier and the new family of men that he’s been welcomed into with open arms. 

But with his iron will, unfailing self-control, and unflappable discipline, Magnus knows he can start a new chapter and get his life back on track...if he can just get past the disturbing, unexpected feelings one young man stirs in him. Because, everything about Dante Thorne is wrong for Magnus. His arrogance, his cocky attitude, every single unfiltered word that falls unchecked out of his mouth and, of course, the fact that he’s a man. 

But when his well-meaning friends send Dante with him as a bodyguard when he returns to Texas to testify in a high-profile case, Magnus begins to see beyond the brash words and endless sexual innuendo. And when he starts to discover that what he sees isn’t all that bad, suddenly, the fact that that Dante is a man instead of a woman no longer seems like such a big sticking point....

Atonement can be listened to as a stand-alone story - no cliff-hangers.

The Protectors series crosses over with some of my other series, so for the most enjoyment, they could be listened to in order, but it is not required. You can find the correct reading order at the beginning of each book. I've also bundled all my series in the correct order under the title of A Family Chosen: The Protectors and Barrettis.

***ANOTHER EXCELLENT INSTALLMENT IN THE SERIES!***

Sloane Kennedy packs another power punch in this turbulent journey, born of such strife & need for justice. "Atonement" is the PERFECT title for the ultimate healing & forgiveness that takes place between our MC's and their beautiful extended family. Spot on reactions to the many directions this patchwork quilt took!! Skillfully crafted, with another thoroughly interesting storyline. Michael Dean, as usual, did a superb job in fleshing out each personality. Such a sexy, hot interpretation of book 6!! Could not have been better. This is my third go on this particular adventure; among the most erotic and passionate of the series, save for book 2, with Ronan's healing reveal. Out of great pain, comes deep healing & understanding. Bring it on!!

The Saga Continues...

I am very happy with the audio version of Atonement. Narrator Michael Pauley does a wonderful job of giving the characters, and story, full living color. If you are following The Protectors series, add this audio book to your collection.

Wow!!!

I thought reading this book was powerful but listening to it... Well that was another thing altogether. What an emotional ride. Thoroughly enjoyed every second of this narration and will definitely be listening to it again.
