Blog Tour, Rachel's Review: Into His Command by Angel Payne

Into His Command BT Banner
A hero worshipped…
Brooke Valen has resigned herself to a life of adoring Samsyn Cimarron from afar. The massive warrior has been her knight in shining armor since the night she and her family arrived on the island of Arcadia, forced to take new identities and blend into the strange new land to avoid a terrorist’s bounty on her father’s head. Though Brooke has grown into a woman and devoted herself to learning battle tactics in order to earn Syn’s respect, it is clear he’ll see her as nothing more than the scrawny teen who washed up on his shore six years ago.
A prince scarred…
Samsyn Cimarron has all but taken a sacred oath never to marry. Disillusioned by the sham of his parents’ union, fairytale love is nothing but a concept for dreamers and story books. Instead, Syn has devoted himself to things he can control, like his country’s security—and a long string of one-night lovers. But when Brooke Valen serves on his temporary security detail and almost dies in the doing, all his careful mandates are shattered—and one night of naked passion with her doesn’t feel like enough. But it has to be. His desires are dark and wicked, unworthy of a beauty like Brooke.
A fate sealed…
When Arcadia’s security hinges on Samsyn taking a bride, he reluctantly seals the deal with Brooke—but vows that even his ring on her finger won’t make him take her body again.
A love realized?
Though married to the man of her dreams, Brooke has never felt more alone in her life. Is the flame of their love strong enough to shatter Samsyn’s darkness? Can the beauty of her soul reach to the beast in his? Or will she have to prove her love by confronting the assassin who’s been sent to finish off her family for good?

Blowing wind. Falling rain. Doomed stars. Inevitable. Inescapable.
Where to start!  Once again Angel Payne makes my heart race, my blood pound and my lady bits tingle!
In her own words "I'd follow down that path like a rat behind the Pied Piper."
I absolutely LOVE her writing.  It's gut wrenching at times and laugh out loud funny at others. It's smolderingly sexy and then I start to cry.  Ugh. the gamut of emotions in Every Single Story of hers I've ever read.
Into His Command is book 2 in the Cimarron Series and you don't have to have read book 1, Into His Dark.  Would I suggest it? Oh most certainly...just so you get to enjoy more of Angel's awesome writing, but it's not intrinsic to this story.
Samsyn Cimarron is a prince...the second son, and he commands the armed forces of Arcadia. He's had his ideals shattered and he's closed his heart off...except for that one bright star, Brooke.  And let me tell you, do they know how to light up the sky!
Grab Into His Command and enjoy all the suspense, the sexy, the absolute goodness that flows from Angel Payne's beautiful mind.

Hi there. I'm Angel: book lover, writing addict, hopeless romantic, pop culture geek and avid shoe lover.
A bit about me...
I've been hooked on books since I was a kid but it got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances--the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer manliness surrounded me, was certainly a good boost for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed--though my path toward romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets...backstage passes...that was a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, personal assistant work for a record producer, dance club disc jockey, and a lot of fun in the hospitality industry.
These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.
