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. **Contemporary Romance.

This was a quick read. Like the other Katy Regnery books I’ve read, the writing was fantastic and the romance was equal parts sweet and steamy. The characters were unique in their situations and were both dealing with their own issues. Although this was ultimately a love story, this book provided several storylines that were important. And, it showed a very strong love between family members that you don’t often see in these types of stories.
Colt is a guy with anger issues who ultimately has a good heart. He takes care of his cousin who has Down Syndrome with such care and love that my heart definitely opened up to him quickly. His love for Verity and his willingness to do whatever it takes to make her feel safe and happy really made him special. Although he seemed at times a bit too naive about relationships, it was also understandable due to his background. Verity was also charged with taking care of her brother, Ryan, who has special needs and it was certainly one way that she and Colt bonded. Both had responsibilities that others their age don’t often have and it helped them connect. Their chemistry was strong and had it’s explosive moments.
I will admit that this is not my favorite book in this series. About half way through, the story started to move slowly for me and I did find myself skimming a bit. I think it’s because certain elements were predictable and the declarations of love were a bit too sweet and repetitive at times. However, overall, this book was still a good read. This is a story about love, about caring for others and being selfless, and about how others can impact your life. Ultimately, it was interesting and I will definitely read the other books in this series.
