Book Review: Tangled Hearts

About the Book
Author: Heather McCollum
Release Date: January 28, 2014
Publisher: Entangled Select

The Tudors take on The Pirates of the Caribbean in this 16th century romantic adventure!

Pandora Wyatt is the most complicated woman alive. Raised by a pirate captain, Dory risks exposure of her magic to free the only father she’s ever known from the Tower of London. But when she’s tied to a smoldering witch’s pyre, her powers aren’t enough to save her.

Ewan Brody is on a mission to deliver a traitor’s corpse to King Henry VIII when he rescues a beautiful spitfire from a horrific fate. Saving the lass’s life leads him on an adventure he never intended. Thrust together in the roles of husband and wife, they dodge royal intrigue, dark twists, and secrets as they attempt to find the true traitor at the Tudor court.

Magic and adventure spark, igniting a fire between Ewan and Dory, consuming them and tangling their hearts together forever. But to reach forever, they first need to survive the day.

Review: First things first, that's quite a chest on that guy on the cover, and I don't usually go for the manly man type. 

This book is everything I like in historical romance, and it is set in the Tudor period, which always wins props from me.

I really loved Dory, she's strong and occasionally a bit shrewish, but overall the kind of heroine you'd expect to hook up with a Highlander. I mean, you wouldn't want a guy like this with some simpering miss!

The book is full of action and intrigue, as you would expect from the time period.

It took me back to my high school days when I devoured Zebra Historicals by the dozen. (Only no Fabio here!)

Definitely a great read for lovers of Highlanders!
