At Love’s Command
by Karen Witemeyer
From the back cover:
He’s fought through ruthless outlaws and injury. But with her, he’s tempted to surrender.
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’s dedication to his friend during recovery earns Josephine’s respect, and when her brother is abducted, he becomes her only hope for rescue.
When plans go awry and Josephine is caught in the crossfire, Matthew may have to sacrifice everything–even his team–to save her.

At Love’s Command is the first in Karen Witemeyer’s newest series, Hanger’s Horsemen. With characters who intentionally challenge stereotypes and well-paced action, At Love’s Command is hard to set down.
Even more impactful than a great story, though, was the message. Not preachy or stiff, both Dr. Jo and Matt have lessons to learn. They are so naturally woven into the story that I couldn’t help but reflect on my own situation. Have I learned those lessons? I love books that leave a lasting challenge for my own life!
I definitely recommend At Love’s Command, and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
