About the Author
Hi there. I'm Angel: book lover, writing addict, hopeless romantic, pop culture geek and avid shoe lover. **I have a monthly newsletter now! Sign up for it right here: http://eepurl.com/LoNkz. It's a cool way to get exclusive info, talk hot heroes, learn about new items in the Angel Payne store, talk hot heroes, further the pie or cake debate...and oh yeah, did I mention talking hot heroes? A bit about me... I've been hooked on books since I was a kid but it got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances--the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer manliness surrounded me, was certainly a good boost for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed--though my path toward romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets...backstage passes...that was a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, personal assistant work for a record producer, dance club disc jockey, and a lot of fun in the hospitality industry. These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.

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.Read more ›

I expect a little world building in book one of a series and quite honestly, I don't make a habit of holding that against an author...even if the book was heavy on the build up. Angel Payne found the balance once again... giving me just enough to have me hooked in to Arcadia, yet not overly inundated to the point where the book lags.
Delightfully snarky female lead that pulled the feels out of me. Forbidden Love tales, when done well... those angsty moments stick with a reader... and take the experience to an entire new dimension. You'll find yourself cheering for these characters (and hissing at a few others). The descriptions of Ev makes me want to stalk the author's pinterest board and facebook page to try to steal glimpses of who she used as inspiration.
Well-written with a fantastic cast of characters... I had to force myself to slow down towards the end because I didn't want it to be over.
I cannot wait to revisit Cam and Ev in book 2... as well as see what is running amok in our dear Arcadia.
Into His Dark by Angel Payne is a wonderful novel about the fantastic: a normal American woman and the head of the mysterious royal family of Arcadia. The small and beautiful island is not progressive and the people have never allowed Westerners on their land. Camellia “Cam” Saxon finds herself working with a film crew thanks to her film graduate buddy on Arcadia. Evrest Cimmaron is the king of Arcadia. He is a young king that is doing his best to make his kingdom more prosperous and more progressive, so he granted permission for the small film crew to work on his island. There shouldn’t be more to it than that, right? Oh boy. There is quite a bit more.
Cam must focus on the immense responsibility thrust upon her shoulders by her film graduate buddy. Her focus is not only on ensuring that the filming is done within budget and on time, she has to ensure that the tentative friendship between the Arcadians and the Americans strengthens instead of severs. She didn’t plan on ensnaring the interest of the king. He was the darkly sensual man of her dreams. She was the bright and beautiful one of his. Would they be able merge their worlds and find true love? You must read it to find out!
Normally, I am not into the whole monarchy-romance thing, but I was drawn in right away. I loved Into His Dark! Angsty romances are my favorites, and Angel Payne delivered! One particular part early on in the book had me sighing with wistfulness. Another part had me going, “Holy s***! No freaking way! That’s impossible!” I have never encountered an aspect like that in all the books I have ever read. What is that aspect? You must read it to find out! Trust me, it’s worth it. Then yet another part had tears falling down my cheeks and my chest hurting, with a dose of, "Oh hell no. No he didn't!" Yep, I am a sap and very reactive, but whew! Not every book I read has that effect on me. Lastly, but certainly not least, this book was HOT!
Angel Payne, if you ever read this, thank you. I applaud you. I am VERY picky about the books that I read and....you definitely have another fan in me! I even began to resent having to work for a living because I didn’t want to be interrupted when enjoying your book. I can’t wait to read more of them!
Go! Get Into His Dark now! You won’t regret it.
Cam came to do a job, putting her whole life on hold for a chance of a life time. Little did she know that it would all change after getting dressed up for a a ball. Knowing you can't have something only makes you want it more. Will Cam be able to have her cake and eat it too?
Love always kinds a way and this hot steamy roll in the "harem hidy hole" will change more then just these too lovers. Strap your self for a will ride of doing what you must and what the heart wants. Trying to over come fears and being stronger then you think possible.
Heat level for this was a solid 9 out 10. That would be scorching wicked hot! Loved every filthy, succulent, second of it!
