I was out all yesterday afternoon and came home to a tweet from @HockeyVampiress asking if I’d seen the latest All Romance eBooks‘ Wildfire newsletter. At the time I hadn’t even had a chance to check my email so I hadn’t, so HV sent me a copy. As I scrolled down, I found Tangled Past had received a coveted Recommended Read review under the banner “Ravishing Historical Romance Reviews”. (*Edited — here’s the link to the actual review on the All Romance eBooks Cafe)
Maybe it’s just easier to copy the entire review which is written by Lady Rhyleigh*.
Tangled Past by Leah Braemel
Sarah McLeod knew that her family had no use for her other than to be a servant for them as they made no effort to hide the fact that they despised her mixed blood. Hearing them plan an attack on the men who had bought her prized stallion, she had to warn them. Seeing them pleasure each other not only scandalized her but stirred something else deep inside but before she could do anything but blush she found herself standing behind the dark haired stranger as he was staring down the barrel of Josiah McLeod’s rifle.
Jackson Kellar and Nate Campbell shared a love for each other that many would consider a hanging offense. Getting caught, the situation at hand was going to change their lives forever. Waiting for the preacher to come, Nate offers to take the black haired beauty as his own but Jackson stands true and takes the hand of his new bride. Making a new life for his new bride while under the same roof as the man he loves, Jackson is torn but stands true to his vows. When a life threatening event forces them all to reevaluate their situation and search their hearts for the truth, they realize that their situation has to change if they are ever going to build a family and a life together.
Sinful, sexy, mesmerizing and intoxicating. I fell in love with this series with the release of Texas Tangle and this prequel to that story was just as captivating. Sarah was a very refreshing and feisty character. I really liked how she dealt with the scorn and hatred of her family and how she walked into her new life with not one but two strangers without breaking down or looking back. Jackson and Nate, both strong alphas, confirmed bachelors and in love with each other not only were loyal to the vows Jackson spoke but made it their priority to give Sarah the choices and the chance to find love with not one but with two loyal men beside her.
Lady Rhyleigh loves to indulge in a good rolicking romance from any genre but there is nothing like snuggling up with a ravishing rake and his lady love. A reviewer for a few years, Lady Rhyleigh spends all of her free time with her head in a book imagining she is the heroine and there is nothing that she will not do to catch her man. Lady Rhyleigh loves them all from Lords and Marquis to cowboys and ranchers to vampires and shifters to pirates and highlanders. If it involves a romp through time she will be there.
