Will the modern world know them? Accept them?

The Cimarrons--the mysterious, magnetic ruling family of the most secretive country on Earth--are about to find out.

For hundreds of years, no westerners have ever been allowed inside Arcadia's borders. That's all about to change...

The Cimarron Series, described by readers and reviewers as "mesmerizing", "innovative", "astounding" and "burned-my-fingers-off sexy", starts right here:

A new adventure...

Camellia "Cam" Saxon struggles not to pinch herself. Is she really here, as a guest in the castle of the world's most mysterious royal family, working on the only western film crew allowed on the island of Arcadia? A year ago, she was the girl who finished college with a sigh instead of a bang, moving on to a safe job and a steady suburban routine without a blink...

Until she gets the call from a film graduate buddy that will change everything.

A dangerous desire...

Cam's excitement turns to dread in an instant--as soon as she lays eyes on Evrest Cimarron. Beautiful, commanding, and regal, he turns her logic to ash and her blood to fire...making it damn hard to remember the crown on his head.

As an Arcadian alone, Evrest must be thrust into Cam's don't-even-go-there column. As the leader of the kingdom, he's now the face on her delete key, too. A fantasy never to be fed...ever

A journey to the forbidden...

A mishap lands Cam in Evrest's most secret chambers, surrounded by luxury beyond imagination--and seduced by a creature who is no longer charming host and alluring king but powerful, passionate man. In Evrest's arms, Cam learns she has new identities, too. The sensible girl is abandoned for a woman of illicit needs and sinful desires.

It's the most incredible night of her life. The most perfect man she's known. The most flawless fit for her soul.

A mistake she can never make again.

What a fantastical read. This book has a bit of everything. It's a great twist on most little girls fairytale, but it is done in a very erotic grownup way. It has heartache and true love. It has drama and comedy. I love all the characters. They each have a part to play and they do it amazingly well. A very sexy book! It's a must read!

Romantic, sexy and hot! Every little girl dreams of meeting her prince charming and being swept off her feet. In this case, it’s King Everest Cimarron, of Arcadia, who will makyou forget this is only a story, and will leave you breathless! This is the beginning of an amazing new series from Angel Payne that is full of romance and hot sex! This modern day love story has King Everest questioning his loyalty between preserving his honor and following traditions, or following his heart. Camellia Saxon is on the island as a Production Manager for the film being shot at the castle. She is struggling to stay away from the King who has touched her heart. I couldn’t put this book down! I was mesmerized from the very beginning and couldn’t get enough of Everest and Camellia. They are electric together!

Dam what a book. it should come with a box of tissues though. Angel has this way of emotionally tying you to the story. she'll make you Laugh one moment and have you crying the next in either happy or sad tears. This story starts with Cam and getting an opportunity to go to an Island country of Arcadia for a once in a lifetime opportunity. With the man she though she loved but are now are friends. But once they arrive and she meets King Everst, it is like the whole world just stooped the moment he touched her hand. But what is a girl to do, he's a king and she can't have him. But oh God dose she want him. This story Angel weave is amazing I really wish this Island really existed and it sounds like a lovely place. It would be nice to go there. I hope you enjoy this book as Much as I did. If you do like this book, please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it when you do, they value your opinions too.

I really liked this book. There were some surprises during it but over all a great story. Camilla is phoned by her friend to help work on film he has been trying to get off the ground for a while. He finally get the funding and the permission to film it where he wants to. He wants to film in on the island of Cimarron. No outsiders have ever been a loud on the island before. The film crew is to be the first ever. This has Cam as well as everyone else involved excited so she agrees to help. Once they get to the island everything changes for her. They are invited to a special dinner there she meets the new king Everest Cimmaron. They are immediately drawn together. It seems as if everyone else in the room disappears as they talk that is until one of his Distinct comes over too. The Distinct are 12 women handpicked to be best suited for Everest he then picks one of them to be his bride. Cam knows despite how she feels about him nothing can ever come of it. Cam and Everest seem to find each other and can’t keep away from each other. Will they be able to see where things go or will they both stick to how it should be? This story was wonderful. Cam and Everest have an instant attraction but because of the way things are for him they can’t be together. Everest doesn’t let this stop him from seeking for out and trying to wear her down. They have a few choice encounters that make it harder to fight their feelings. Some of the things Everest does makes in known to others how he feels about Cam. Many things stand in their way but will the let years of tradition stand in their way or will they changes the rules to go with the times. Cam becomes friends with one of the Distinct and learns about her. Cam feels for the girl and what she is going through. Everest let them film on the island because he knows that his kingdom needs to change with the times or be left behind completely. I hope there are to be more books in this series. I want to read more about these characters and what happens to them. I was given this book in return for an honest review.

      Into His Dark (The Cimarron Series 1),  Angel Payne Genre: Romance, erotica Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews I love complex reads, paranormals, romance and contemporary, but sometimes I just want a fun read, a good old fashioned sexy romance. This was just perfect. I don’t think I’ve ever read such a sensual, erotic scene where the participants don’t actually have penetrative sex together – that really amazed me, that a scene could be so incredibly tempting, tantalising and moving without going the whole hog. Such a beautiful change from the endless pages and pages and pages of samey sex we often get in erotic reads, and somehow Angel continued it for some time without repeating parts. Poor Cam, still pining for Harry after the end of their affair, but they’re just friends now and he’s bringing along Beth, his new girlfriend, to the filming. She wants to dislike her but can’t even get the satisfaction of that – Beth’s a nice girl...Harry is still oblivious to her feelings – the man is very single minded, and I got the impression only filming and directing are the true passions in his life, leaving little room for relationships. Then she sees Evrest and its like lightening strikes between them. Its a formal dinner and he breaks protocol by coming over to her. Of course one of his twelve would be wives – the alpha one – isn’t happy about that! Evrest was hoping she’d be there, thought it really unlikely, a very tenuous connection that she’s know Harry and be asked to help but after seeing her years ago when visiting her university he can’t get her out of his mind. He doesn’t even know if she knows Harry but is hoping, pleading with the Creator.  When they meet it’s as if there’s some kind of supernatural connection between them. He knows nothing can come of it, she knows in six weeks he has to choose a wife from one of the twelve and yet....they can’t keep away from each other, and very quickly have some torrid, secret liaisons. Someone is watching though, and determined Cam won’t get to upset what she thinks is rightfully hers. There are some real dangers ahead for Cam, and she needs to take care. Its a great read, very full of heat and with a decent plot backing it. The only thing that’s not right for me is the time span, the main thrust of the book and their romance covers just a few days, and I just find that a bit hard to believe. If it was a few weeks, preferable 2-3 months for me, I’d have found it more realistic. I know people do fall in love instantly, but with all the barriers here its hard to see how in such a short time. Longer would have allowed full flow for Chiarra, the Alpha distinct, to really let her jealousies flow – and I love a good jealous b itch! . Stars: Four and a half, a very sensual read.

Into His Dark is a sexy, modern day fairy tale come to life! The first in a new series by Angel Payne, the story focuses on King Evrest Cimarron of Arcadia, an island cut off from the rest of the world, and Camellia Saxon, a production manager with a movie crew that’s granted special permission to film on the island. Evrest and Cam meet and the chemistry between them is instantaneous and fiery hot!  This isn’t the boring version of the fairy tale, though.  There are twists and turns throughout the story, laughs, tears, and lots of very hot, sexy moments!  It’s a fantastic read that I couldn’t put down from beginning to end.  Keep writing, Angel, because I can’t wait for the next book in the series! I loved it!
