Oct 16, 2013 rated it it was amazing
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,

Review from Backchatting Books

Sir Garath Solimere, a knight of Arthur’s Round Table, has been trapped inside a relic as punishment for having an affair. He is doomed to remain tethered to the bracelet until he meets his one true love. Over the years he has become very good at pleasuring the ladies so he is unpleasantly surprised that Millicent, a werepanthur, is only interested in handing his bracelet over to free her firebird friend, Nell.

Millicent Pantere lives in the underground where many l
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 Merl

While Everlasting Enchantment is book four of the Relics of Merlin series it has no problem standing on its own.

The setting is Victorian England and Queen Victoria plays a role in the story. It is an England with shape shifters and magic. Gareth Solimere is trapped in one of Merlin’s relics. Millicent Pantere is suppose to find that relic in order to save Nell, the only person she thinks she cares for. Once the relic with Gareth comes into Millicent’s possession the story really takes off.

You can easily read this one before the other books. At the beginning there is an explanation about the relics and the start of this society.

In this book Millicent, a were panther and hired to find a relic. And a relic she finds, and with it a sexy knight called Gareth. Adventure and romance follows.

But things are never that easy. Cos of things I will not explain Millie is not exactly falling all over him and their way to love is long. There is also someone in the need of a rescue, an evil guy t

I'm never entirely sold on romances where one character is under the other's power (slavery, debt, whatever), but this handles it as well as they ever do. The push and pull of the relationship grows a bit tiresome by the end, but is believable due to characterization. And it delivers on an engaging world and happy ending. ...more
**3.5 Stars
This series has been an enjoyable and colorful romp through an alternate Victorian England. And I have loved the shapeshifters, so much, haha. This one has a female shifter, and some predictable twists - that made it no less enjoyable.

I'm used to romance novels not being very deep but this veneer was too thin for me. Shame as the premise and possibilities of this world and characters had me.

I've not read other books in the series but I don't think that would help.

Imagine a Victorian London where magic never died. The stronger the mage, the higher his or her title. Birth is no longer the most important thing in society, magical power is. If the younger sibling is stronger than the oldest, the younger will inherit. If the children are weak in magical power, they will loose their title and estate and status completely to a stranger who will get it all.

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.

Newly Released!

I am really enjoying this Merlin's Relic series by Kathryne Kennedy. There are shifters, magic, a Knight of the Round Table, action, and a steamy romance.

Our Knight, Sir Gareth, is such a gentleman. Doesn't matter that he has known so many women who cannot help him. He's kind and chivalrous anyway. But he's been trapped in one of Merlin's relics for so long, he's almost given up hope for his release. That is until the relic tightens on Millicent's wrist.

For her part, she doesn't

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 h ...more
Unfortunately, this is the last book in the "Relics of Merlin" series--or perhaps just the latest one written (one can hope!).

Millicent Pantere is commissioned to find (and steal) a bracelet charged with a great deal of magic--she has no idea just how much--and she finds out the bracelet brings a ghostly lover to teach her about love. Well, she's having none of it! But she can't get the bracelet off until she sleeps with the cursed knight, Sir Gareth, and that she won't do, so she's stuck with
Millicent, a street tough were-panther from the Underground, is blackmailed into searching for a lost relic of Merlin. When she finds it, there's a catch--the bracelet has clamped onto her arm and won't release until she makes love with the knight who has been cursed into it since Arthurian times by Merlin himself. Gareth has been searching for centuries for the woman who can break his curse, and is certain Millicent is it--but she refuses to believe in love.

Everlasting Enchantment is a paranormal romance that takes place in the early years of Queen Victoria’s reign. This book has shifters, magic, romance, intrigue and a new play on the Genie in a Bottle fairytale. I started reading and enjoyed every bit of it!

Sir Gareth Solimere has been looking for his true love since the time King Author ruled England. Because of what he did to Merlin he has been trapped inside a relic, a bracelet, and he only comes out for a woman who might be the one to help h

Everlasting Enchantment is the next installment in the Relics of Merlin series by Kathryne Kennedy. The magical world she has built using the Regency and Victorian English real world is beautifully crafted and it is always a delight to revisit. This book is a delightful read even though I found the plot a bit transparent. Others may not find it so. If you like your fantasy grounded with a bit of "real world" history, Ms. Kennedy's books will more than likely keep you entertained. Plus, I adore h ...more

A lovely tale, full of magic and mystery. Millicent Pantere is a shapechanger, content to live her life in the shadows, but she's coerced into a conspiracy. She meets Sir Gareth Solimere, who has been trapped by Merlin's curse for centuries. They are thrown together, unlikely allies, to save lives and perhaps even a kingdom...

First-rate characters, Millicent is more fully realized, full of faults and virtues, mistakes and bravery. Sir Gareth is still a cipher at the end of the novel, but he fulf

I really like the author's magic fantasy world in this series. It is fun to escape to. This one was my least favorite because it just felt like it was dragging on forever, like there were 5 possible ending places but kept going. There is a significant page difference between the first three and this one, so it wasn't completely in my head. So, I guess if you enjoy a thorough story with lots of story, you will definitely enjoy it. ...more

I like this series, I have tried to read another book (from another series) written by Kathryne Kennedy but only got about half way. I did guess alot of the story line, but I enjoyed reading this. I think most of the reason I loved this series was the shapeshifters. I hope she writes more Relics of Merlin.

Kennedy riffs on the gennie myth, where Gareth a knight from King Arthur's time is cursed by Merlin and traped inside a silver and opal bracelet.
Cursed jewelery is a common theme in fantsy romance and Kennedy does her version well.
