Worth the Read!
Feuding Hearts is in my opinion a classic historical romance. It is exactly what one would expect when picking up this genre. Aside from the spelling errors it is very well written and the characters are well developed. It was most definitely a nice respite from my usual genre of young adult.
Cecilia was a likable character from the moment that she was on the page. I admired her strength and wit. She knew her own mind and she wasn't afraid to speak it. Despite her instant fear when meeting large, cold mannered Aldere she didn't let it show. She lifted her chin and went head first into a life that was most uncertain. I have to say that as I was reading I felt connected to Cecilia throughout the entire story but when she announced her age I was caught a little off guard. She is so young! However, I do realize that this was common back in those days but as I was reading I often marveled at the maturity that young Cecilia was able to project. I admired how such a young girl was able to take over such a large household and find the strength within herself to not cast out the jealous and evil Keisha from her home.
Aldere was a strong, proud man that honored his commitments. While I really liked him and rooted for him throughout the story I couldn't help curse at him while I was reading. He was stubborn, pig headed and sometimes blind to what was really going on around him. Yet toward the end he also became more humble and was willing to admit when he acted unfairly.
Overall, I really liked this book. I hadn't read a historical romance in a long time and I was reminded why I liked them so much. The setting is always fascinating and the actions of the people are so much different from how we live today. I would suggest grabbing a copy of this book and settling in for a romantic tale and a good time!
