So, so good!
I loved this book!
Captured Heart is a delightful historical romance with a hint of paranormal, a mix that works out beautifully.

The story is interesting. Meg runs away to Scotland to escape her father, a man who had her mother tried and burned for witchcraft and could be planning the same for her. On the way, she meets Caden and a lovely partnership arises. But, of course, there are secrets involved, political minefields to maneuver, and a decades old feud to settle. Intriguing, yes? And it didn't disappoint.

Meg was a fairly average character. She's not remarkably memorable, but she is likable. She's a strong woman, she would have to be to survive all that she goes through. And she could call a man out and leaving him crying for his mommy without breaking a sweat. She was fun.

Caden was HOT. He's the kind of guy that girls would wolf-whistle over. He was strong, determined, and incredibly handsome, with a soft side that will make you melt. He was really the perfect hero, not just a fixture of some eye-candy, but also a strong leader who will sacrifice anything for those he loves. The relationship between Caden and Meg was both sweet and spicy, if you get my meaning. They were adorable together, a couple you can really root for.

The other characters that feature in this book were all well drawn out. Even the antagonists were dynamic.

The plot is quite a whirlwind. There were some surprises along the way that I never saw coming. The story is fast-paced and the ending was nicely wrapped up, perfectly sweet.

Captured Heart is a wonderful book. If you like historical romance, you'll love this. And even if historical romance isn't your regular, you should still give this book a try. It's totally worth it.
