I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before, but I LOVE Karen Witemeyer’s stories. I love her characters, writing style, and … well, just about everything about her books. At Love’s Command only reinforces my opinion.
This is book one in the Hanger’s Horsemen Series, and I can’t wait for the rest of the books.
As usual, Ms. Witemeyer has a hunky hero, Matthew Hanger, and a spunky heroine, Dr. Josephine “Jo” Burkett. Their attraction is almost instant, but it takes time for them to acknowledge their feelings and even longer to do something about them. Add in outlaws, a selfish brother, and the other members of the Hanger’s Horsemen–Mark, Luke, and Jonah–and you have a recipe for angst, arguments, and a bit of hilarity. Once I started reading, I did not want to put it down. And when I got to the end, I wanted to start all over again — or rather, continue with the next book.
Five roses out of five. Awesome book!
More about At Love’s Command:
Haunted by the horrors of war, ex-cavalry officer Matthew Hanger leads a band of mercenaries known as Hanger’s Horsemen who have become legends in 1890s Texas. They defend the innocent and obtain justice for the oppressed. But when a rustler’s bullet leaves one of them at death’s door, they’re the ones in need of saving.
Dr. Josephine Burkett is used to men taking one look at her skirts and discounting her medical skills. What she’s not used to is having a man change his mind in a heartbeat and offer to assist her in surgery. Matthew Hanger’s dedication to his friend during recovery earns Josephine’s respect, and when she hears of her brother’s abduction, he becomes her only hope for rescue.
Matt has stared down ruthless outlaws, betrayal, and injury, but when a bossy lady doctor crawls under his skin, his heart is tempted to surrender. And when she is caught in the crossfire, he may have to sacrifice everything–even his team–to save her.
PS. I received this book from the publisher/author for the purpose of review. The above is my honest opinion.
