Gosh, how I loved this book. It had everything that makes a fantastic historical romance.

The story line was VERY exciting and fast paced. I was glued to my Kindle as my fingers swiped to turn the pages as fast as I could read. I really enjoyed the fact that a large part of this story took p
Highlanders delivering the body of a traitor straight to England's royal court, pirates to rescue from the Tower, a magic wielding lady pirate to the rescue, a suspicious King, traitors at court, and ah yes, things are ripe for high adventure, intrigue and romance (and not necessarily in that order). I saw all these elements and I just couldn't pass up the opportunity for a fun, swashbuckling adventure with a bit of the paranormal to make things interesting.

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 r

Tangled Hearts by Heather McCollum, book two of The Highland Hearts Series,

Dory is on a mission to save her Captain Bart and almost brother Will from the Tower of London.

Ewan has one mission: to return the traitorous corpse to the King. But along the way he sees Dory in distress and leaps to her protection, which starts a series of events that neither could have foretold.

The character interactions were intense and the way Ewan and Dory worked together to just survive the Kings court was exceptio
Scot Ewan is on a mission for his clan, to bring the body of a traitor to the King in London, and return safe and sound. Along his way, his path crosses with Pandora, a woman bound to find her way to save her Captain from the Tower. That the corpse in Ewans custody happens to be her father, must be chance.
Historical Romance with smutty fluff, action and suspense. Twists and danger will keep you on your toes to the end.

Pirates, magic, and Highlanders—OH MY! I loved this novel! I haven’t been able to say that in a long while, but really did enjoy this one. Set against the real of Henry VIII, this novel spoke to my not-so-hidden Anglophile like no other. The Tudor rule, fraught with intrigue, ambushes, and beheadings, is one of my favorite time periods, and when you mix that with a handsome Highland warrior and a witchy female pirate, well, how can
I received a copy of this book from the Entangled Publishing and the author in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.

I think you will find that this is going to be a light-hearted tale. Heather writes a scene where Dory comes upon a woman who reminds me of a certain actress – but make sure to read to the very end. Our author puts in a “Historical Note” that explains more about this lady (but I still thought of the actress which gave me a great character reference while
Historical? Paranormal? Even Pirates? Yes to all. This is an engaging magical read from a great new author I have found, Heather McCollum. I will now anxiously await each new release from this author. Her first book, Captured Heart, and her second, Highland Heart, was absolutely fantastic. Tangled Hearts did not in any way disappoint. This great read includes passion, love, magic, romance, adventure, humor, and highlanders.

Heather McCollum is a new-to-me author who is recently published and has two series to her name. Tangled hearts is the third volume in her Highlands Hearts series. The three others are titled Captures heart, Highlander heart, and the next to come out will be Crimson heart. I loved the beginning of the novel.

Not my usual type of read but the idea of Highlanders at King Henry's court mixed with pirates and not forgetting the possibility of witchcraft was too much temptation to resist! I do love an adventure that takes me away from reality and that's just what this book delivers!
Tangled Hearts is set at the time of King Henry VIII's reign and it's a world of deceit , treachery ,greed and of course passion. Step up the gorgeous Highlander Ewan Brody a man who firmly believes in protecting the innocent

I was absolutely captivated by this book! A rich story with absolutely adorable characters: the heroine of the story is a badass, don't-mess-with-me kind of girl with a kind heart whom I love! The story draws you in from page one and takes on a literary ride chock full of danger, intrigue, humor, and romance. I highly recommend this book!

A while back I discovered Heather McCollum, yes once again thanks to NetGalley, and with each book of hers I read I fall deeper under her spell. My first book of hers I read was Captured Heart and I of course immediately fell in love. I mention Captured Heart because it seems lightening really does strike twice. Since I am a huge fan of Ms McCollum's when I see one of her books on NetGalley, I snatch it up. Tangled Heart had her name attached and the premise

TANGLED HEARTS by Heather McCollum is an exciting Historical Paranormal Romance set in 1517 England & Scotland. The Tudor era. #2 in “A Highland Heart novel”, but can be read as a stand alone.

Filled with treason, betrayal, a traitor or two, Scottish Highlanders, High Sea adventure, passion, a witch, a bit of magic, deceit, a bit of trouble, lots of danger and love.

Another greatly entertaining read from Heather McCollum!

I loved this. I loved the first book in this series too, and I loved this one just as much, even though it had atotally different feel to it. The reason it felt so different was, without doubt, the heroine Pandora (Dory) Wyatt. She was fantastic! A feisty little tinker with a mind of her own, who doesn't need anyone (yes, including YOU Ewan Brody) telling her what to do. Raised by a bunch of marauding pirates, and concealing
Book two in the Highland Hearts series, I may have missed the first one but aside from being a little lost at the beginning of the book it was a wonderful, enchanting story. Dory and Ewan are so perfect together, the chemistry between the two is absolutely perfect. They are probably one of my favorite book couples. I always like a story that ties in historical figures of that time with the fictional characters. Jane Seymour, Thomas Cromwell, and King Henry are a wonderful touch that make the sto ...more
As long as you're willing to let go of historical expectations, I think Tangled Hearts is a blast. A witch-pirate-daughter-of-a-traitor enlists the aid of a Highlander to rescue her pseudo-father and pseudo-brother from the Tower of London.


There's magic, there's jousting, there's a sea battle and, of course, a solid bit of romance and passion. Pandora can hold her own with the brawny Highlanders who start to surround her, the pirates she grew up with and the even more dangerous nobles and ha

"Where magic and passion entwine..." that's the tag on the book and I can't agree more.. This was a great read with the mix witchcraft and pirates in the setting of Henry 8th time frame. I also like that this may be a part of a series it still could be read as a standalone. The character were an excellent pairing and there were sections you can't help but laugh out about...

I should also mention there was a few sections that if you speed read thru you could easily get lost and confused, so put o
I really liked this book. Pirates, Highlanders, Magic, historical England...whats not to like?

Ewan is going to London to protect his "family" and deliver a traitor to the king. Dory is trying to find her real father and get her family out of the Tower. When they run into each other we all know it's going to be a fun ride when the highlander meets the pirate.

Oh my this book was fantastic. Ewan Brody came upon a lass who was in the process of being burned. He saved her and gave his word to help this spirited pirate lass.

I'm usually not a huge fan of highlander romance, but this one punched all the right buttons with me. I particularly liked the "secret history" element of the whole story, and the involvement of actual historical figures (in this case, Henry VIII and Jane Seymour). I also enjoyed the inclusion of pirates, and I appreciated that the author didn't make attempts to sanitize some of the more squicky elements of the historical period, but also didn't wallow in them. I will definitely try more work by ...more

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.

Oh this book and story is so much fun to read! Of course this is the second book in the series but you can still read it and follow the series as a stand alone. And this is an Historical romance dating back to the Tudor times so beware. It's my first read of Heather's work and I'm super going to be getting her first book in the series and her novella~

I haven’t read Heather McCollum before, but the promise of an adventure involving the Tudors, pirates and magic made this one irresistible. Also, I was in the mood for romance and men in kilts. There was plenty of both…and Tudors, pirates and magic.

This is the first book I've read by this author but it definitely won't be my last! Pirates, witches and gorgeous men? What else could I ask for? Such a good book! I picked it up and couldn't put it down. I'm going to be dragging at work today after staying up late reading it. Love the heroine. It's always good to read about a woman who has a mind of her own and is not afraid to use it!
This was an extremely enjoyable book! The characters are an excellent match and the story line had me laughing out loud in several spots. This is the second book in this series, but it reads perfectly as a stand alone! I haven't read the first book, and I never felt like I was missing out on something. I will be looking into getting the first one now, though! I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I have never read a book by Heather McCollum and Tangled Hearts was a quick and entertaining read. At times I did find myself skimming some parts because I would get a bit bored with the story. I have to say that this book got the third star simply for Ewan. I loved him and thought he was a wonderful hero. I loved how he put everyone first. I liked Dory but didn't LOVE her. I did think her family background was cool. I will be checking out more books by Heather McCollum and I recommend this book ...more
