Overview

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?

When Aidan Evernight receives a letter from his fiancée Lady Luella Jane Moran, he is less than pleased with her desire to rebel against their parents and refuse the betrothal. In the hopes of encouraging her to accept, Aidan urges his younger brother, Eamon, to write to Luella Jane, since Aidan never learned to read or write. E begins a correspondence with Lu and falls in love with his brother's fiancée, not realizing his love has secrets of her own. VERDICT Recommended for libraries owning Callihan's series.

Entwined is a Darkest London novella. It might be a quick story, but Kristen Callihan still provides a highly entertaining and complete read. Where many novellas fall short in plot and emotional character connections, Entwined gives us a bounty of both. Eamon Evernight is the second son and even though he is smart and good looking he is persecuted by his father and the villagers for his red (evil) hair. When a marriage arrangement is made for his brother with Luella Moran, his brother employees Eamon's assistance in corresponding with Luella. While Eamon can read and write his brother has never took to it, so over the years Eamon was the one who kept in contact with Luella. Over time and many letters, E (Eamon) and Lu (Luella) have grown very fond of each other. But when Luella arrives at the estate, she is still bethrolled to Eamon's brother. The story's progression was seamless, perfectly flowing with action, romance, conflict and resolution. The paranormal element in this story is minimal, focusing more strongly on the progression of the romance. While Callihan still managed to add enough to appease her paranormal enthusiasts. Entwined gives us a brilliant peak into the Darkest London world, leaving us wanting more. I received this copy of Entwined from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) in exchange for a honest review.

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. *I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

This novella opens with a charming set of letters between the leads. Then, the love story when they meet, though filled with issues is very sweet. A ginger, blacksmith, virgin = awesome. I would have been happy to spend more time with this couple and his superpower but the novella felt complete and was very enjoyable.

Entwined is perfect for those looking for an entertaining combination of historical, gothic, maybe even paranormal or just that slight touch of steampunk, but who really just want a love story that will give them a happy ever after at the end.

I love when a story fits the title so well! Entwined by Kristen Callahan is the unraveling of webs of deceit that become entwined with threads of love! Aidan Evernight and Luella Moran are two halves of an arranged marriage. The outspoken Lu sends a letter that in no uncertain terms states she wants out of the agreement, but it isn’t Aidan who replies, he has secretly entrusted this deed to his younger brother Eamon. As time and more letters pass, a bond is formed between Lu and Eamon, writing as Aidan. Naturally, Lu is unaware of the “switch.” When she arrives how long can this deceit go on? Eamon has clearly lost his heart to Lu, who has lost her heart to the Aidan who wrote the letters! Who disappears, leaving Eamon to deal with the problem that is Lu. Entwined is touching, charming, and has enough awkward and funny moments to make for a delightful short story! Toss in some major discoveries, other than the obvious truth that must be told, and this quick read will definitely entertain!
