Entwined (Darkest London, #3.5)
Release date: November 5, 2013
Publisher: Forever
Genre: Historical (Steampunk) Romance
Series: Darkest London #3.5

Eamon Evernight has always lived in his older brother's shadow. While his brother is fair of hair and lithe in body, Eamon sparks fear with his fiery locks and massive frame-and rumors of a mysterious power. But when his brother has the good fortune to be betrothed to a beautiful stranger, it's Eamon's help-and quick wit and romantic heart--that he needs. Eamon agrees to write the noble lady...a generous offer that will forever leave him a changed man.

Lady Luella Jane Moran has no interest in an arranged marriage and tries valiantly to dissuade her betrothed from afar. Though her own letters plainly state her case, the words her husband-to-be writes her leave her aching for his touch. Will Lu give in to the desire the missives have kindled within her? Or will desire turn cold when she discovers their true author?

My Rating: 5 Roses

Dark, romantic, and full of secrets, Entwined was a brilliant historical romance. It was an absolutely wonderful read. Loved this novella!

Luella was a lovely heroine. She was very likable and sweet. She was hiding a few secrets and they took me by surprise. I though she was a great character and I really liked her.

Eamon was just as wonderful. He was so sweet! I adored him. He's been seen as second best his entire life because, while his brother is the perfect classically handsome gentleman, Eamon is not the ideal. He's massive and red haired with more interest in his inventions than society. Not to mention how horribly his father treated him. All of that could have made him bitter, but, instead, it made him very humble in a sweet way. He was just so endearing and I completely fell for him.

The romance was very sweet. Luella and Eamon were adorable together. The way they fell in love through letters was so sweet. And, I loved that, even when she met Eamon's brother, who she though she had been writing to, she still felt a connection with Eamon. It goes to show how deeply in love these two were. And, the chemistry was super hot. These two had some serious sparks flying. I thought they were a perfect couple.

The plot was fast paced. I was hooked the entire way through. For such a short novella, there were a quite a few surprises packed in there. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.

Entwined was a fantastic historical romance. I LOVED this novella. It was dark, romantic, and just perfect. Lovers of romance, if you want a quick read that will keep you hooked, then you have to read this book.
