DarkSexyNightEbookCoverUse (1)

SYNOPSIS:

From New York Times bestseller Katy Regnery comes another timeless tale of love everlasting!

Loosely inspired by the legend of Camelot, Dark Sexy Knight tells the story of dinner theater knight Colt Lane, who meets down-on-her-luck Verity Gwynn on the worst day of her life. Evicted from their home, Verity and her special-needs brother, Ryan, must find jobs or risk being separated. Colt, who is the furthest-possible thing from a white knight in real life, comes to their unlikely rescue, quickly cementing his place in Verity’s heart.

Colt has dark, deeply buried secrets that keep his smile hidden and his eyes down, which has kept people away . . . until he meets Verity, who seems immune to his gruff manners and taciturn ways. The more time Colt spends with her, the more he longs for her sweetness in his life and yearns to be the knight in shining armor she so desperately needs. Certain he will lose her if she learns the truth about his past, he must decide if he can trust her with his yesterday in order to build a beautiful tomorrow.

“Suddenly, for the first time in my life, I had good luck. No, I had the best luck. I had you. And it was like all those touch knocks were worthwhile because you were the prize. I had to have all that bad luck so the scales would be cosmically balanced when you came along.”

This is the third book I’ve read in the series and it is, BY FAR, my FAVORITE. Each book is a standalone and is loosely based off of famous fairy tales. This one centers around the tale of Camelot, specifically with Lancelot and Guinevere. Don’t worry it takes place in present day and the characters just happen to work at The Legend of Camelot, which is like a Medieval Times for those of you who have been to one of those dinner theater shows. I just loved this one so much, and it had nothing to do with the fact that I have always been fascinated with the tale of King Arthur, Camelot, and the Knights of the Round Table. It just had everything to do with the main characters and the breathtaking love that they had for one another.

Colton Lane is the dark and brooding Viking Knight at TLOC. He has a body made for sin and a very masculine alpha appearance. He’s not what you would consider handsome but something about him just oozes sexuality. Women who come to the show end up throwing themselves at him and he’s been known to take some of them back to the horse stables a time or two for some hot schmexy times. Colton is at a job fair with his boss, trying to recruit new employees for TLOC. He runs into a beautiful young woman and her special needs brother and normally he doesn’t go out of his way to socialize with others or to offer help but something about this woman draws him to her. He finds himself going to bat for the two with his boss to get them both jobs at TLOC. Not only does he end up helping them land jobs, but he ends up opening his home to them when they are evicted from the seedy motel they had been calling home for the past month. He just can’t seem to stop being their savior.

 

 

Verity Gwynne is the young woman that finds her knight in shining armor in Colton. She recently lost both of her parents and has been left the responsibility of caring for her older brother who suffered a head injury when he was young and is now mentally disabled. She’s never been given a break in life. Her parents spent most of their time caring for her brother because of his disability and left her to fend for herself. Since their deaths life has been a huge uphill battle for her until the day she meets Colton.

 

 

Colton has also had a rough start in life and because he had explosive, violent outbursts, which was termed intermittent explosive disorder, and it led to some trouble in school, he was sent away by his parents to live with his Aunt. The outbursts would only be triggered when someone he cared for was being threatened or harmed. He lived a better life with his Aunt and before she passed away she had asked him to look out for his cousin, Melody, who suffers from Down Syndrome.

 

 

Colton and Verity feel an instant attraction to each other but they’re both a bit clueless and can’t see what’s going on between them. Once they finally admit their feelings the steam factor is OFF THE CHARTS!!!! I think every woman needs a Dark Sexy Knight in their lives!!!!

 

 

As with every fairy tale, there are some villains who threaten to tear the two young lovers apart forever. Will Colton and Verity be able to face their challenges head on and keep their relationship intact?

 

 

This story was the complete package for me. I was absolutely engrossed in it from the very first page to the end of its amazing epilogue. I have enjoyed the two other books I read by Ms. Regnery but never did I feel blown away until this one right here. Now I am adding her to my list of MUST READ authors. She has won this reader over indefinitely!
