Trapped inside an ancient ring Sir Gareth Solimere can only find true freedom by finding his one true love. He uses his ability to seduce in the hopes he will find his escape. When his ring attaches itself to Millicent Patere, a were-panther, he discovers that he might like to stick around longer than a one night seduction...but an evil sorcerer has his sights on the power of the ring and will stop at nothing to control Solimere. Everlasting Enchantment is an interesting mix of the legend of Merlin, paranormal creatures and steamy seduction all blended into a historical romance. This original plot will send you to a new world beneath everyday society. Kennedy created a vivid, dark and beautiful world for us explore. I received this ARC copy of Everlasting Enchantment from SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication December 3, 2013.

Millicent has been blackmailed into finding this relic but she has no clue that the relic holds a cursed man inside of it. That is until the bracelet fastens itself onto her wrist and at dusk a man appears. Sir Gareth has been cursed to appear every night to the wearer of the bracelet in hopes that she’s his one true love thus breaking Merlin’s curse. However, Millicent has no desire to sleep with him and has ever intention of turning him and the relic he’s imprisoned in over to the man who is holding her friend captive. I came across the first book in the series a year ago when at a book sale. I really enjoyed the story but just never continued with the series. I was a little worried that I would feel lost picking back up at book #4 but the stories don’t really mix. These are all new characters that we read about and everything is explained as far as the magical world is concerned. So this can be read as a stand-alone or read in a series. It doesn’t really seem to make a difference. I haven’t read too many Merlin type books but I really enjoyed that there was quite a bit of mention of Merlin in this one. We get background information as to why Merlin made a relic and locked Sir Gereth into it. Personally, I felt like Merlin was justified in his decision… but that’s just me. The romance was slow building and sweet. At first Sir Gareth is just trying to seduce Millicent to try to break the curse but because she keeps refusing him, he gets to know her and finds himself falling in love with her. The two don’t start out being in love with each other and I think that’s what really drew me in. I loved that they actually built a relationship out of friendship instead of instantly falling into the sheets. This was a great book that had a mixture of historical and paranormal romance. It also had a bit of mystery since you weren’t quite sure what would happen to Sir Gareth when if the curse is broken. Does he become mortal at the age that he was cursed or will his age catch up to him leaving him in a pile of dust on the floor? This was definitely a well rounded entertaining read. I will have to go back and read the other books that I skipped in the series to see what else I’ve missed.

Full of magic, romance, and betrayal, Everlasting Enchantment was a wonderful read. I absolutely loved this romance! It was just lovely. Millicent was a tough heroine. She had a difficult life, and that made her very strong. She was definitely a survivor. Nothing the world threw at her could take her down. But, her past also made her wary of trusting others. And, while I understood the reason, it did frustrate me that she was so staunchly opposed to a relationship with Gareth. Otherwise, though, I really liked her character. She was great. Gareth was just as amazing. He's seen a lot in his centuries of living, so absolutely nothing can shock him. He was strong and determined to break the curse so that he could live a normal life again. But, things are not exactly as they seem with the curse. And, when he had to make a choice between what he though he wanted and what he really wanted, he knew what to choose. He was very sweet and devoted to Millicent. I adored him. I thought he was perfect. The romance was sweet and steamy. Millicent and Gareth were a perfect match, though someone *cough* Millicent *cough*  was in denial about that. They are both very strong and they definitely met their match in each other. And, the sparks between them were super hot. They were certainly well matched in that area as well ;) The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. There were surprises, secrets, and betrayals that a never saw coming. Particularly the truth about Gareth's curse. That one was a shocker. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was perfect. Everlasting Enchantment was a fantastic romance. I loved this book! The magic, the romance, the surprises. It was all perfect. Lovers of romance, this is a book you definitely need to read. *I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

Kathryne Kennedy's latest book in the Relics of Merlin series, Everlasting Enchantment has been a long time coming and fans of this eclectic series are ready to see where Kennedy will take them. Kennedy's world building skills are among the best in this cross between fantasy and paranormal romance. It is definitely a genre-bender as it is set during the reign of young Queen Victoria and uses the London underground as a backdrop for the action and adventure that makes up this novel. Kennedy fans will relish her knack for time and setting as much as her ability to create meaningful love scenes and tender moments. A great addition to a good fantasy series. What I liked:  I liked the fact that Kennedy doesn't give us a straight up paranormal romance or a high fantasy title, which she is known for. She gives readers a very unique mix between the two in Everlasting Enchantment. You have paranormal characters like the heroine who a panther shifter, you also have historical figures like Queen Victoria and the magical realm that is very reminiscent of high fantasy.  I liked Millicent a lot. She was a heroine that has had a hard go of it. She is orphaned and used to relying on only herself and her abilities to get her though anything. She isn't very trusting and she doesn't believe in doing anything that doesn't lend itself toward her own preservation. Kennedy shows a lot of skill at character development as she begins to break down Millicent's walls and allows her become vulnerable and ready for love. Gareth is kind of a confusing character for me. He has been imprisoned in a relic by Merlin for seducing his lover, but yet he comes off with such a chivalrous and kind character. A knight of the round table, we know he is gallant and serves others before himself. But as seen in times past, the knights are still human and Gareth is certainly not oblivious to the fact that he must seduce the right woman in order to break the curse. I liked the fact that Kennedy shows Gareth's growth as well. At first all he cares about is getting Millicent to sleep with him in order to break the curse but in the end he begins to think more about her than about freeing himself. These two make a great team and a great couple. Their relationship is not without it's problems but it develops in just the right way. They become friends before anything else. Each of them must make some hard decisions that affect each other and the way Kennedy resolves thing is very enjoyable and surprising. That curse is a little more devious than meets the eye. What I didn't like: The bad guy was a ruthless duke who coerces Millicent to steal the relic and he holds her friend as ransom. As bad guys goes he was a little predictable but that doesn't take away from the overall enjoyment of the story. He was just one of those people that you know is a bad, but he doesn't steal the show. He sort of lingers in the background a bit and other elements overshadow him. Bottom Line: This was a very good long awaited book. It had so many different elements in it, that it will appeal to a wide range of readers. I miss Kennedy's fantasy edge a little bit, but it does surface enough in this one to make me want to read any succeeding books in the series. The time of Arthur and his knights, of Merlin and real magic, is quite well represented and I think there is a lot to like about this one.
