Christian Fiction

At Love’s Command by Karen Witemeyer. Review.

Book Blurb

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.

My Review.

Matt and Josephine! Such an unlikely match. Both head strong but soften by the common goal to ease pain around them.
My heart went out for Josephine when she felt that she couldn’t practice medicine and at the same time have a family.
Matt’s job of a former Calvary officer with the famous four Horsemen to  instil law and order kept him always moving, behind enemy lines and in danger. That was the only life he knew till he met the independent and strong-willed Josie.
I really enjoyed the humor in this book, some parts made me laugh out. I enjoyed reading about their love story. So wonderful and heartwarming.
Josie learn to surrender to will of God, Matt learn to open his heart again to love. They both learnt trust in God.

If you love historical romance you’d love this book.

I received a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.
