Sophia is finally going to marry Ian. Thinking she is just going to be in the background while Ian continues his relationship with Derek, she learns that both men want her as their wife in a triad relationship. 

At Love’s Command is the fourth installment of Ms. Kane’s Brothers In Arms series and finally resolves a subplot from the previous books.  I was a little surprised by that as I could see where this particular thread could be woven throughout the entire series.  Be aware that Sophia’s father beat her and her brother raped her, so be prepared as you read. I could understand both Ian’s and Derek’s reaction when they found out.   

The emotions that go through this book are intense as Sophia and Derek try to come to terms with the relationship that Ian wants between all of them.  I liked the way the author showed the emotions and misgivings that the two had about each other.  As the story progresses, we see more of the relationships with the secondary characters as they help with a crisis that evolves after some revelations and threats.   

The author has an understanding of the PTSD issues that soldiers experience.  I liked the way she handled some of the nightmares, though that solution might not work for a lot of soldiers.  She slowly reveals a bit of each characters background of their military service.  I am enjoying the twists that come with each story.
