Publisher's Summary

For Landon Greene, managing the band Carter’s Creed is more than just a job. It also means being there to keep his brother safe. When someone begins sending threatening letters to Carter, Landon feels overwhelmed with the need to protect him. He’s relieved when new security is added, until he finds out that the person hired to protect his brother is the same man Landon has spent months trying to forget. Micah Hamilton recently moved back to Chicago to start his own security firm and to be closer to his best friend, Giovanni. He’s ready to leave his past as a Navy SEAL behind and settle into his new life, but his plans change when a friend calls and asks him for a favor. There’s no way Micah can refuse the request, even though he knows it will require him to face the one man he’s vowed to stay away from. Can Landon and Micah put their differences aside in time to save Carter or will their pride leave him at the mercy of a madman? Will they continue to resist the undeniable chemistry between them or will they take a chance and possibly find the greatest love they’ve ever known?  

Protecting the Soul is the third book in the Souls of Chicago series. It can be read as a standalone novel, but is best read as part of the series. 

This book contains sexually explicit materials and is only intended for adults 18 and older.

Love this series!!

I've read the e-book of this story and absolutely loved it! The audiobook is just as amazing. Michael Pauley does a fantastic job differentiating between the characters and bringing out the emotions behind this story. Annabella Michaels is truly talented and her stories and characters are addicting. Absolutely loved hearing this story come to life.

Loved this story

I fell in love all over with Landon and Micah. I had read the book but discovered even more as I listened to this wonderful story. You connect so closely with the characters and really care about them. The vulnerability and strength on each is amazing. Another great addition to the series

This was so wonderful andI loved it!

First off I absolutely love Annabella Michaels books and I loved reading Landon and Micah's hea, yet listening to this on audiobook brought it to another level that just made even more fantastic.

One of the main reasons that I love listening to audiobooks is hearing an extremely talented narrator bring the story and the characters, that I love so much, to life. Michael Pauley did an absolutely amazing job at giving these characters that Annabella created to life in such a wonderful fashion. He was completely able to give me such an enjoyable experience that made me feel like even more a part of the story. He made me connect to them on a deeper level then if I was just reading the book.

I greatly enjoyed listening to this and finally hearing one of my favorite families brought to life and getting to experience that. I highly recommend listening to this and I also enjoyed following along with my ebook copy as I did.

Best of the Series So Far

Protecting the Soul is suspenseful and exciting. There are just enough twists and turns in the mystery without overshadowing the romance of Micah and Landon. This is a case of opposites attract in all the right ways. They each need different things from the other and aren’t afraid to ask. I enjoyed their chemistry and how they communicated what they wanted from each other.

As usual, Michael Pauley was delightful in his narration. He adds excitement to his voice during the suspenseful parts, and just the right amount of sexiness during the steamy parts.

Battling inner demons


I love the Greene family and this series of stories. In this story we meet Landon Greene.  Landon has spent his years since college taking care of everyone else, while hiding his darkest secrets from his family.  But just as his younger brother Carter’s music career is soaring, a stalker appears. Sparks fly when the head of security, Micah Hamilton is brought in to protect the band.  Micah and Landon have an intense connection, that both have been avoiding because of their past experiences.  Michael Pauley, the narrator brings Protecting the Soul to life.  From the intense sex scenes to the sorrow filled scenes of Micah’s past, he brings the words to life and brings you into the scene and makes you feel like you are right there with Landon, Micah and the rest of the band of characters.   I will definitely be revisiting this story again and again.

Amazing story!

This book is so breathtaking! This is a series to get lost in. The characters are so beautifully written. They jump off the page. Michael Pauley brings them to life in the most amazing way. This is such a smart, sexy, funny, warm love story. Listening to Landon and Micah find their way to their HEA is everything. Amazing audibook!

Riveting and Explosive.

This series is one of my favorites. This is book 3 in the series and I was thrilled when it came out on Audio. Even though I really love all the guys in this series, I knew Micah would probably be my favorite. Now after listening to Michael Pauley bring him to life, I was not disappointed. Book three is about Landon Greene, manager for Carter (his baby brother) and his band, and Micah Hamilton, who is heading up security for the band. Not only was this story well written but it ticked off many of my boxes...Erotic romance, hot Alpha Control freak male, and a who done it mystery with a serious twist. Ms. Michael’s has a very clever writing style that is very intriguing. I was riveted to the unforlding story while trying to figure out who was behind the threats.

As I listened to Michael Pauley bring all the characters to life, he totally nailed it especially my man-hunk Micah. I was swooning all over the place. I seemingly love the hard nosed, broken, undeserving of love characters and poor Micah is all that and then some. I enjoyed the way the story of these two men coming together through pain and heartache unfolded. They are both flawed and vulnerable but perfect for each other. I also continue to marvel at the Greene family members, how loving and accepting they are with everyone in their own family as well as the newly added members.

This book had me by the throat at times, while my heart bleed at others. But I loved each and every minute. On a scale of 1-5 I give this one a 10.

Love

This series is amazing, but on audio and I couldn't love it more. Truly, this is a series that just stands out when it is narrated. I loved hearing more about Landon and his demons we knew were lurking in the corner somewhere. Learning about and meeting Micah, you just knew he was the one for Landon. I loved his take charge attitude in the bedroom, and the subtle ways he tried to take care of Landon outside the bedroom. This series is so sexy, but with so much depth to the story line. I'm often left wanting to hurry up and get to the end, but wanting to savor it at the same time! Another fantastic book in this series that leaves you with all the feels.

wonderful story

I love this series and Michael Pauley brings the characters to life. This is the second audio for this series, that I have heard, and I love it as much as the second book in the series. The voices are consistent throughout the books and the characters' feelings after emoted well.
I can't wait to start back with book 1 and I'm waiting for book 4 to be released.

Fantastic story and narration

I love this series and getting to hear it on audible is even better. Michael Pauley does full justice to the characters and the story line. It's full of emotion, with both Landon and Micah have both bad experiences in their past and big trust issues however with a threat against Carter out there, Landon's stressed and Micah's the man to care for him and the situation.
I fully recommend this whole series and I'm so happy that Landon got his HEA after reading his twin bother's getting theirs in books one and two. This is a family that you can properly fall in love with and the relationship and connection that emerges between Landon and Micah.
Again, Michael Pauley is brilliant in his narration. From the first few sentences, you're hooked into the story and his voice just carries you along.

Michael Pauley knocked it out of the park once again. Micha and Landon are one of my favourite couples in this series and I absolutly love their story. Michael did an amazing job bringing them both to life. You really get to hear the emotion of the scene and that makes it even better.
