As a graphic designer I'm always searching around for cover to attract me to a book and then Ill read the synopsis. Not only did Entwined have a beautifully designed cover but the typography placement was elegant and really emphasised the story theme. I love the imagery that was chosen for the design with the castle lurking in the distance and the young girl in this beautiful dress looking at it from afar. It really made me want to know what the story was about and about who this girl is. The story not only sounds enchanting but I love touch of magic and it being a version of the Twleve Dancing Princesses. One thing is for sure I can't imagine having 11 sisters lol.

"Azalea is trapped. Just when she should feel that everything is before her . . . beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing . . . it's taken away. All of it.
The Keeper understands. He's trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. And so he extends an invitation.
Every night, Azalea and her eleven sisters may step through the enchanted passage in their room to dance in his silver forest.
But there is a cost.
The Keeper likes to keep things.
Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late."
