Dark Sexy Knight – by Katy Regnery
Date of Publication: June 5, 2016
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.

This book had all the makings of a true romantic story, which i’m a total sucker for and it didn’t let me down one bit, I loved it.
I loved Verity. She was a true fighter in ever sense of the word. Down on her luck, after losing the family home and caring for her brother since their parents died, they are living out of a motel struggling to make ends meet. Desperate for a break, something to go right for them, they are searching for jobs when Colton Lane stubbles into their lives. This knight in shining armour rescues them in more than one sense, helping them get jobs, sticking up for them when no one else will and putting a roof over their heads.
Colton Lane works as a viking knight at a dinner theatre, The Legends of Camelot. This man is all brooding, totally rough around the edges and oh so sexy as hell. At first glance he is not your typical hero, he has a hot as hell temper which has got him into trouble on more than one occasion but underneath it all he had so much love to give. When he spots Verity, he is drawn towards her, he can’t stop offering to help her and her brother Ryan although he is not quite sure why he is doing it. He just can’t stop rescuing her and even when he tries to push her away
This was an incredibly touching story, it pulled at my heartstrings on more than one occasion and i was totally immersed in this wonderfully written book. Colton & Verity were perfect for each other. They both needed the other, they were kindred spirits searching for something, someone and they found that in each other. Verity was a sweet and devoted soul, she would do anything for those she cared about, she protected her brother with everything she had and despite Colton’s attempts to push her away she was determined to stay with him through everything. Colton was all rough around the edges with plenty of darkness in his past but Verity brought sunshine into his life, happiness and he falls for her hard and fast and that scares him.
I was so wrapped up in this story and Katy’s characters, it was hard to put this book down. It was a great representation of true love and devotion and also a story of family and what you will do to protect those you love. This is a great read that you will easily get pulled into and one i can guarantee you will be hooked on to the very last page
