    One of a kind I received an advance reader edition of this book

    One of a kind

    I received an advance reader edition of this book from Entangled Publishing, LLC and Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

    This book is a hard one for me to review. I did not love this book but I also did not hate it. At times I found this book easy to put down while at other times I flew through the pages. I would have to say that this book was a 3 star read for me.

    Ewan is a Scottish Highlander who just happens to be around to rescue Pandora from being burned at the stake as a witch. Ewan is surprised to learn that Pandora, or Dory, is actually a which and controlling the weather is one of her talents. Dory tricks Ewan into not only accompanying her to King Henry's court but also helping her rescue her pirate family that is currently locked in the tower. Dory is not only a which but also a pirate and is the daughter of traitors to King Henry. While working together to free her pirate family, the pair pose as a married couple and start falling for each other.

    There was a lot going on in this book. I would really say that it was probably a bit too much. The villian at the end of the story seemed a bit of a stretch as well. I did really like the romance between Ewan and Dory and felt that that was the strong point of the book. The other major strength in this novel were the twist concerning Dory's pirate family.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something a bit different. This book is definitely different. I can not remember ever reading a book about Pirate, King Henry, Witches, Scottish Highlanders, and even a few scenes in King Henry's tower.

    A thrilling, action-filled romance, Tangled Hearts was a wonderf

    A thrilling, action-filled romance, Tangled Hearts was a wonderful read. This book was great and I really enjoyed reading it.

    Dory was a good heroine. She was very strong and extremely loyal to her loved ones. She was definitely not someone to mess with. My only problem with her was that she tended to be a bit shrewish and manipulative. But, overall, I liked her.

    Ewan was wonderful. He was so sweet and utterly determined to protect his loved ones, even if it meant he was on the chopping block. I really liked him. He was perfect.

    The romance was lovely. Dory and Ewan were wonderful together. I thought it was so sweet how, despite all the chaos going on and despite their previous expectations about what they wanted, they still managed to fall for each other. And, there was some hot chemistry between them. I thought they were a lovely couple.

    My favorite part of this book was the truth about Dory's "pirate" family. I thought that was well done and I really liked that unexpected twist.

    The plot was okay. For some reason, I couldn't get  totally hooked. Even with all the action and thrills that I was interested in, I still wasn't completely drawn in. And, there were some parts that I skimmed because they started to drag. But, I was still kept interested. I enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was lovely, particularly with what happened in the epilogue.

    Tangled Hearts was a lovely historical romance. It wasn't perfect, but I still enjoyed reading it and I ended up liking it. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out.

    *I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
