Publisher's Summary

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.

Ugh!

If you're looking for a rainy afternoon guilty pleasure romance novel, this is not that book.

I have mixed feelings, because it's good to spend time with the characters from the Shadowlands, but this book is about marriage communication problems, frustration over infertility, and child abuse. Not a book to escape into.

The squeaky little baby-talk voice of the two-year old that's cute in the first two minutes of the book gave me a headache by the end of it. (And I waited a whole day before writing this to make sure I wasn't just knee-jerking.)

Definitely don't read this if you haven't read any of the other books, because you'll likely be lost and won't get anything out of it. It's really only worthwhile if you want to see what's happening with the characters you already care about.

Established Ds couple grows

I finally got around and bought the audiobook.
I’ve read Nolan and Beth’s (or should I say Connor and Grant’s) story before and this is the first time I listened.

As usual Noah Michael Levine and Erin DeWard are excellent.

I love how this book shows a Ds relationship developing and changing. I would have liked for both Nolan and Beth to open up about their problems and insecurities a bit fast, but hey even fictional characters are people, right.

I adored the boys and how the entire Shadowlands’ crew took them in their protective and loving circle.

And I’m very pleased with the insight in Detective Max Drago, but because I know what’s coming next (Uzuri, you’d better hide!)

Love!!

This was such an amazing story!! definitely a must read! The book doesn't have many spicy scenes but rather a heartfelt story of battling infertility and cherishing the boys that come into their home.

Narrators especially the voice of the children was wonderful. Very endearing story and characters. This story also includes BDSM but with a sweet twist

Love Beth and Nolan

Love LOVE love the shadowlands series, and my some of my favorites are of the stories of Beth and Nolan. Story has made me feel lots of different emotions and really pulls me into their world. Cherise Sinclair has the BEST bdsm stories I've read/listened to. Highly recommended!!

Adjust Dreams

We get to revisit Nolan and Beth as they more forward with their lives together. We see Beth be strong and caring person. We get to see her weather disappointment. We also get to see how Nolan and Beth work together as a couple to readjust their dreams and open their hearts.
