Product Description

The throne has been usurped by James II’s daughter and son-in-law, Mary and William of Orange. In 1693, loyal to his oath of allegiance, ten year old Richelda’s father must follow James to France.

Before her father leaves, he gives her a ruby ring she will treasure and wear on a chain round her neck. In return Richelda swears an oath to try to regain their ancestral home, Field House.

By the age of eighteen, Richelda’s beloved parents are dead. She believes her privileged life is over. At home in dilapidated Belmont House, her only companions are her mother’s old nurse and her devoted dog, Puck. Clad in old clothes she dreams of elegant dresses and trusts her childhood friend Dudley, a poor parson’s son, who promised to marry her.

Richelda’s wealthy aunt takes her to London and arranges her marriage to Viscount Chesney, the new owner of Field House. Richelda is torn between love for Dudley and her oath to regain Field House, where it is rumored there is treasure. If she finds it, Richelda hopes to ease their lives. But, while trying to find it, will her life be at risk or will she find true love?

5.0 out of 5 stars A highly enjoyable read! May 13 2012

In 1693, loyal to his oath of allegiance to James II, ten year old Richelda's father follows James to France. Before her father leaves he gives her a ruby ring and makes her swear an oath to try and regain their ancestral home, Field House.

The story begins when Richelda at 18 is orphaned, and lives in run-down Belmont House with her mother's old nurse and her dog, Puck. Richelda can only dream of living the life she was meant for and hopes her childhood friend, Dudley, will honor his promise to marry her.

When Richelda's wealthy aunt, who had been disinterested in her welfare up to now, takes her to London and arranges her marriage to Viscount Chesney, the new owner of Field House. Richelda is both delighted and dismayed. She cannot trust the handsome Chesney, even though she is desperate to honor her oath to regain Field House.

I enjoyed this historical romance very much, it's well written and Morris knows her history and understands the society of the period well. The heroine and hero are both attractive and likeable. I wanted to see them get together in the end. What stood out for me in this romance is the shrewd knowledge of human nature, Morris displays. Her character's rash actions, mistakes and foibles are always understandable, and never detract from the good characters of both.
5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy successor to the legendary Georgette Heyer Sept. 22 2014

Ms. Morris's 18th century historical romance is a delightful read, well-grounded in detailed research of the period that provides a rich background to the story. She has interwoven the historical details with a skill that gives the reader a visual backdrop that unfolds in concert with the plot line without making the story read like a dissertation of the Jacobean rebellion. The dialog moves the story along at a pace reminiscent of a well-written stage production. Unlike some other historical authors, Ms. Morris has struck a perfect balance between the stilted grammar and vocabulary conventions of the period and modern conversation that makes reading the interaction among the characters pleasant to read. I recommend "Tangled Love" for anyone who wants an enjoyable story that also provides an intriguing look at a very complicated period of history in the British Isles.
5.0 out of 5 stars Romance and adventure in an engaging historical novel May 7 2014
By Lindsay Townsend - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
'Tangled Love' has a loveable heroine in Richelda and a commanding hero. Throughout their time together they share many adventures and Richelda must mature a little, learn to see who she can trust and who is worthy of her love. Can she rely on her childhood sweetheart Dudley or the worldly Alban? Her choice is important, a matter of life and death.

Set during a time of religious turmoil in England, 'Tangled Love' is a worthy historical novel as well as a fast-paced romance. Through its pages the reader learns of the social and divisions of faith during the time of Queen Anne and is shown the very limited destinies available to women at the time. There is also a mystery here concerning possible secret, hidden treasure and a lively sub-plot involving a second romance between two of the subsidiary characters.

This is a well-written story, full of twists and turns. The romance is at all times realistic and shown from both the heroine's and hero's POV, something I always enjoy. Overall the novel is almost Gothic at times, with its secret priest holes, treasure, family obligations and secrets and its dangerous, unstable villain.

Very enjoyable!
