Synopsis (Goodreads):
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?
Thoughts on Entwined: Holy moly, I liked this one! The endearingly awkward wedding night sealed the deal for me. Well, that and the big, burly Eamon. Because I'm a sucker for a guy who's tormented and haunted by things in his past.

I adored that their courtship took place through letters. It was sweet and romantic and sadly touching that they could be themselves nowhere else but in the words they wrote to each other. Throw in a little deception to spice things up and this courtship becomes downright heartbreaking as it continues.

Although part of the Darkest London series, this book can easily be read as a stand alone. You get to see the paranormal side of this world (and some hints on what's to come), but the bulk of the story is simply about a man and a woman who have to find their way through some sticky romantic issues. Like lying about who they are.

Man, I love this series. It's so ridiculously fun to fall into!
