Not 1 Prince Charming, but 3 Charming Nobles. A sister, annoying to her brother, a friend to Rapunzel.
This is a lovely, sweet and sexy version of Rapunzel. More elaborate and more human than the original.
I loved the interaction between the 3 Charming Nobles and Kiki. I'm really glad that Candice Gilmer promises to give them their own stories! And there are a few hints at the end of this book about how one of those might go...
Great book!

An adult version of Rapunzel! I loved it!! I can't wait to see what else Ms. Gilmer does! It has all the trademark fairy tale stuff but with an adult twist that will keep you turning the pages to see how it unfolds! I definitely recommend this to my friends and any adult fairy tale readers!! You will not be disappointed!

This book was recommended to me by an author friend and I wanted to give it a shot. This is a retelling of the story Rapunzel. I really enjoyed the beginning of this. It was really well done. Then it kind of went down hill from there. I just did not love Rapunzel's personality in the end. She was a real spoiled brat at the end and her Duke was just a jerk. I found myself turned off by them by the end of the book.

Our heroine has lived a secluded life with an abusive mother. When her salvation appears in the form of a handsome Lord, will she find the courage to seek a new life and love? Enjoyable, adult take on a classic fairytale. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

I wasn’t sure what to fully expect with Out of the Tower. I’m going to honest – I’m not a fan of the historical genre. I think I read too many at a younger age and grew out of them. So, even though I have loved everything else that this author has released, I was prepared to not fully enjoy this one. Boy, did she shock me with how well done this story was!
Rapunzel has been living in her tower under her mother’s protection. Lord Nicolas von Hohburg finds the tower in the woods after hearing the

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked this book. It tells the fairy tale of rapunzel in a whole new light. Candice is telling the story really good with some unexpected turns.
Sometimes the story drags on a bit, but I enjoyed it none the less.
If you like a good fairy tale, you love this book!

This a grownup Rapunzel, prince charming book and it's a must read. I was glued to the pages as Nick found, charmed and fell in love with Rapunzel. This book has danger, suspence, loyalty and some hot sexy love scenes. I was gifted this book for an honest review and I loved it
