Weston Elliott, after admitting to being no fan of romance novels, writes: "...I would highly recommend this book, and here's why:
"It is clean - no smut - but there is a really great kiss! It is a romance, after all!
"It is religious - but not preachy. It shows the simplicity of living the faith one believes as a straight-forward part of life, without trying to explain why or convice anyone. I, personally, loved that!
"The characters are real - stubborn, faulty, and true to life."
Martha Rogers writes: "Brenda Coulter has given us a wonderful love story of two people who are considered heroes in the eyes of others, but both have doubts about that.... This is a great read."
Anne Greene says: "Along with a top-notch story, Brenda gives the reader interesting peeks into the life of an Army nurse and a helicopter pilot. Having a strong army background myself I can vouch for Brenda's authenticity. Brenda's characters live, breathe, and overcome real situations. The topic is serious, but the writing is funny and keeps the reader glued to the story to the very last word."
Laura Hilton writes: "I enjoyed getting to know Maddie and Jake, and watch as their relationship moved forward. Tied together by an orphaned boy with a heart problem caused by a bomb that killed his mom, Ali is a sweetheart and both Maddie and Jake are instrumental in getting Ali the care he needs. Don’t miss AT HIS COMMAND. It is a winner."
Anita Reaves says: "Brenda Coulter has written an entertaining read. She starts off her book with a great hook... [and] continues her witty phrasing of words throughout the book. A truly enjoyable read."
Jessica Nelson writes: "What a sweet romance! The characters were immediately likeable and sympathetic. And though there are some painful moments in the book, Brenda balances them with a nice dose of humor. This is the first book of hers I've read and I really liked it. Not only was the characterization great (I could practically hear the Texas twangs) but she used lovely metaphors and her writing style is active and smooth. Plus, the first kiss . . . Actually, I think it was the second, but let's just say the first REAL kiss was great! I loved that scene."
Annette Irby didn't like the hero of At His Command. She writes, "...the way his resistance [to the heroine] came across was harsh. Personally, I felt he was too callous with Maddie several times in the story, so much so, that when the two leads finally reconciled the potential romance wasn’t believable because he didn’t seem repentant enough. I think if he’d given in to at least one instance where he felt compassion after pushing Maddie away, that would have helped."
