Oh I’m in love, it was breathtaking, funny, sexy, sweet, loved every page and I think I relate to Jen a lot, I cold say a lot of things and very little, but one thing is for sure, Angel is an amazing, talented and wonderful writer, you can actually feel her in her references of other characters, her soul is in every sentence and it’s an amazing feeling.
Thank you Angel you are one of a kind!!
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Conquered by Angel Payne is Book 9 in the Honor Bond series. This is the story of Sam Mackenna and Jen Thorne. I haven't yet read the previous book, so for me this was easily a standalone book.
Jen works at Nellis Air Force Base but is a wallflower geek tool. Jen knows to stay clear of the hot men that work at the base so she guards her her heart and herself. But when Sam a Scottish RAF pilot comes to cross train on base its hard to keep her hormones in check...much less her heart. Sam and Jen b

Sam "Braw Boy" Mackenna and Jen Thorne

Holy hotness, Angel Payne! This book was all about the heat from beginning to the end. Heat in, Sam and Jen's minds, then finally in the bed.

I've said this about every book in the Honor Bound Series, "This is my favorite one", and I'm saying it again . Cause I loved Sam and Jen's story. Braw Boy and Mouse! I'm so glad they found their way to each other. I can't wait for future books to see if there is mention of them and their HEA. Angel, superb writing, as

Sam "Braw Boy" McKenna, a fighter pilot and a Scottish wet dream has arrived on loan at Jennifer Thorne's Air Base and is creating storms in her life and in her body. The fire between these two is palpable from early on and reaches cosmic levels as they go on. If only Jen would get out of her own way and stop looking at the end as opposed to reveling in the present, she would find the path her heart tries to lead her. Sam is dominant and powerful in romance and in between the sheets. There are s ...more

Jen Thorpe keeps her emotional cards close to her chest. She works at Nellis Air Force Base and she refuses to let her guard down with any of the hunky pilots that come and go through the Military Unit. She heard that a hot shot Scottish RAF Pilot was arriving to the Base to do some cross training. When she meets Sam MacKenna, she was not prepared for the dominant authority in which he commandeered her in his gaze when he claps his eyes on her. She felt a MIG28 4.6 negative

Okay, WHAT? Angel, I need MORE Sam and Jen. Holy hell. I don’t think I’ve ever been in love with two characters as much as I love them. My heart HURTS. I wanted to cry. I wanted to scream and yell at them. Lady, every book in the Honor Bound series is pure magic! Absolute magic. If you have not began the Honor Bound journey, I can’t even begin to tell you how much you are missing out!

I love the Honor Bound Series and this one is no different. In this story we have Jenny Thorne who works at Nellis Air Force Base in the accounting department. She considers herself to be a booknerd/geek and does not think anyone would be interested in someone like her with Las Vegas being so close.
In comes Captain Sam Mackenna from Scotland on a month long relocation. Jenny instantly feels something for Sam but does not think he would ever look at someone like her. There are sparks between the

Sam and Jen conquered my heart

Angel Payne has once again sent my heart beat pounding erratically with the next instalment in her HONOR BOUND series. Sam MacKenna and Jennifer Thorpe were, quite simply, made for each other. This dominant Scottish rogue and the geekish "mouse" have become my new favourite couple (sorry Tess and Dan).

Sam, Sam, Sam ... what can I say about Sam? Hot, sexy, dominant, gorgeous, a pilot and a man with a killer smile. He falls hard for Jen the moment he meets her, and th

The Honor Bound is such a great series of stand alone but interconnected books about some military alpha guys and the women that captures their hearts and their Dominant side.

Angel Payne, the things you do to my heart!!! There really isn't any more praise that I can give Angel Payne that would do her justice. She's one of my absolute hands down favorite authors. Ever since I discovered Angel I have not read a book of hers that has disappointed me. She is a wizard with her words. Her characters suck you in and her plots keep you turning pages.

Conquered is Honor Bound book #9 and it certainly does not disappoint. It brings us the passion we have all come to love and wa

Up all night w/ Books blog

Conquered by Angel Payne is a very steamy read. It was a Dom/sub love story between Sam, a Scottish jet pilot, and Jenny, an administrator at the base. Jenny fights her feelings for Sam during most of his stay in Las Vegas while Sam tries to convince her to let him take her out. Finding love is difficult enough but, finding someone that needs the same thing as you in the bedroom? Even harder.

I enjoyed how well Angel Payne det

I'm always down for a sexy Scotsman, and Sam Mackenna definitely had me wanting my very own Braw Boy badly. See, he's a Scottish pilot come to Jen Thorne's Nellis Air Force Base for a month long training thing. Their first meeting had me laughing so much, then came the whole HUGE chemistry factor. But Jen refuses to date pilots which I didn't quite understand completely, and luckily enough, Sam had no problem with tearing down her sky high walls. Not to mention, her whole self esteem situation t ...more

DNF at ~p. 45

Flipping through this before I brought it home, I realized it was pornographic. I have no problem with graphic sex scenes in literature, and my low rating isn't a critique of the larger genre.

The first scene is of the two main characters meeting when the woman's dress flies up in a stiff (ha) wind and exposes her "French lace" panties, and the fact that she's carrying delicious burrito leftovers prevents her from attending to her hem. This made me laugh, and I thought, "Yes! A campy

This book was previously published as a novella in the One Night In Vegas Anthology. I thought it was hot then, and now? Well, now it's panty-melting! Angel added so much additional content to give Sam and Jenny their own, much deserved full length story.

This Series keep getting better and better!!

Jen was not expecting to be caught off guard by Sam.. This was truly new to her as she always keeps herself guarded and protected. The first thing she recognizes in Sam is his dominance and authority. He has a smoldering and domineering look that goes right through her. Is it possible that someone can see right through your soul when you first meet them??

Sam also has quite the experience the first time he sees Jen. She is beautiful and he can tell she

Conquered is the 9th book in the Honor Series, and wow! It is a great one! Angel Payne has such a gift for creating a story world that keeps you turning pages and makes you care about the characters. I love this series. This can be read as a standalone book. I liked the Reece Richards/Bolt shout out.

Oct 22, 2018 rated it it was amazing
Conquered is book 9 in the Honor Bound series but can very easily be read as a stand alone too. Jen works at Nellis AFB and Sam is a Scottish RAF pilot that comes for some cross training. He is hotter than the Scottish Lairds in all of Jen's romance books. She catches the eye of the sexy Scot but can't imagine why. She sees herself as a bookish nerd who is no where near Sam status. Sam on the other hand see a beautiful woman full of fire and is hoping for the chance to tame her.

Okay so once again Ms Payne succeeds in bringing the ultimate fantasy to life on the pages of her newest must read book. When your the quintessential shy and bookish nerd, it’s no surprise that you have an amazing fantasy life. Jen is the Wallflower that no one really makes notice of and she uses her anonymity to imagine all that could be. When Sam Mackenna steps on base and turns her life into a steamy and sensual version of Outlander, she’s not sure what to make of it. She’s not the girl that ...more

This reads like a lust infused passionate dance between Jen and Sam. Jen is a woman who keeps her cards close to the vest as she works at the male dominated Nellis Air Force Base. However, she is not one to get played so she keeps her guard up. That is until she comes face to face with Sam, the sexy Scottish pilot. (I mean really what woman could resist that accent?) Sam took one glance and it was game over. He knew what she wanted and longed for and he is just the man to give it to her. The onl ...more

This series gets better with every book. Conquered was Sam & Jen’s book and it did not disappoint. Sam gets sent to the US from Scotland for cross-training, a change he feels is necessary after all the missions he has done, and never expects to meet someone like Jen. Jen will be the first to admit that she is awkward and nerdy so she doesn’t think a hottie like Sam would ever be interested in her. The more time they spend together on base the hotter the attraction & chemistry between the ...more
