Entwined (Darkest London #3.5) [Luella Jane & Eamon Evernight] by Kristen Callihan

What a sweet sweet innocent story! I was totally wrong about the MC, I thought it would be of the "grand revolation" in the previous book but actually it's exactly who it proclaims to be - Eamon Everlight - whom we heard of in the previous installment as a special crafter and soon after we met his grand daughter - Holly - a weapon engineer for SOS (also the MC in the fifth installment).

We start this one about 60 years prior to the timeline of the other books in the series as we come to know how Eamon Evernight met his love interest - Lu. Luella was promised to his brother Aidan yet, Aidan never wanted to get married and actually so did she. On a desperate note, Luella Jane Moran writes a letter to Aidan Evernight asking him to help her (and himself) be rid of this arrangment. Too bad Aidan can't read or write.. He asks Eamon to write back to her, but what starts as one letter turns into 4 years of them writing to each other as Lu (as Eamon calls her) to E (as she calls him) never him revealing to her his true self.

When at last she comes to Evernight Hall she is surprised of the closed off and not that personal Aidan and intrigued by the silent giant of a man that is Eamon. The three of them are highly frustrated as they all have something to hide. But as the story continue E and Lu re-fall for each other and we come to know what is Eamon true ability (after all this IS Paranormal as well as Historical Romance).

I loved how innocent the both of them are, with the opposite sex (naturally WITH sex) and in general in communicating themselves to each other with the secrets they both keep.  I really enjopyed it! The beginning with their letters to each other was truly a joy to read and later on, the way their relationship was building was utterly beautiful. No real angst even in places other writers would have made a huge scene. It all worked out beautifully in a very sensitive way.

Recommended as all this series is! But since this one takes place in another time and place I do think it can be read as a stand alone novel. The only mention of characters from the previous installment happens in one sentence in the very end of the story and if you haven't read the previous one it won't mean anything to you anyway.
