Into His Command (The Cimarron Series #2)
Into His Command is Book Two of Angel Payne’s The Cimarron Series. I loved this book even more than its predecessor, Into His Dark, and I didn’t think that was possible. Angst and action? Ohhhhhh yeah. A massive warrior, commander, and prince, and a beautiful and seemingly delicate though immensely strong and tough American seeking refuge in Arcadia? Wowza.
Brooke Valen is a young woman who has experienced terror in her life, through no fault of her own. She finds herself in seclusion on Arcadia due to a terrorist threat to her family. She becomes a trained Arcadian warrior. She becomes hopelessly in love with the first Arcadian she meets once she lands in Arcadia, Prince Samsyn Cimarron.
Prince Samsyn Cimmaron is the second son of Arcadia’s king father. Samsyn, or Syn as he’s called by those close to him, is the commander of the Arcadian military and the head of royal security. He is a man with the burden of familial secrets that force him to deny that love, much less true love, exists.
Will a woman hopelessly in love with a man who doesn’t even believe in love ever find her happy ever after? It is a book with HEA, but the journey to get there is one that you have to read to truly understand how it happens. I loved this story so much that I am struggling to keep from giving more away and sharing my favorite parts.
Brooke and Samsyn are thrown together due to a high security job. Little do they know just how bad it would get. For me, it was bad enough to have me muttering, “No, no, no, this is not happening!” Then, “Oh my God!”
Brooke is one seriously tough cookie. Many women shy away from difficult things. I don’t blame them. However, Brooke is one that takes difficult things and makes them seem like it’s all in a day’s work. I would like to think Brooke and I have a lot in common. She’s definitely one woman that I would stride into a fight with side by side. While I like to protect others, she’s one that I could enjoy a good fight with. Sounds weird, I know. Brooke doesn’t back down and always thinks of others first. My kind of woman.
Samsyn is a very conflicted man. I believe that the heart that he denies that he has causes him to treat and react to Brooke very differently. It isn’t just pure lust that brings him back to her time and again. It truly is his heart. To see what I mean, read the book! There were several times that I wanted to reach in and just knock him upside his head as much I wanted to just hug him. As expected, Samsyn is an alpha male (Gah! I love alpha males!) and is possessive. I love that. No, really, I love that!
I really and thoroughly loved reading Into His Command! It is definitely on my re-read list. This particular book had my heart racing in several different scenes, breaking in a few of them, and finally sighing in contentment. From beginning to end, it was hot, hot, hot! Thank you Angel Payne for another fantastic story!
Readers, if you are seeing this and have not read Into His Command yet, go and get it now! I promise that you will love it!
