As some reviewer's have stated, our H is not a worthy man. He has several children out of wedlock, doesn't support them nor sees them. At the beginning of the book KLV informs us he changes as the book goes on because of the h. I didn't see any changes, until maybe 95% into the book and by then it was too late for me to care about him.
I did enjoy the h until mid way through the book when a father of a young women came to our H to demand he does the correct thing and marry his daughter as she bore him a child. Our h doesn't look at our H with discuss, but berets the father for raising a lose daughter. She then taut that her father raised her better (?) . How can this be when she left home at 5 and had no contact with her parents for 14 years, because they put her in a convent. I feel a women who was taught to be kind to her fellow man would not have treated the girls father as such - out of character in my opinion.
I appreciated the fact that at the beginning the author tells us no-one is killed in this story. I have read over 25 novels by this author and trust me, someone you care for usually dies. Plus no fight scenes, no violence, just a romance that builds slowly. The lovemaking between the H/h happens at the 99% mark, and wasn't very passionate. But, I may have been tainted because I didn't enjoy these character's.
The road to HEA was not smooth, we do get some tension wondering who the h would marry. The ending as far as how thing were wrapped up was nice. I am not going into the whole premise, as many have explained it, just what I felt reading it. (ljb)
Dark Destroyer, is stunning, powerful and emotional! Truly another magnificent story, by Kathryn Le Veque! I loved Gates and Kathalin! Their story stole my breath away! This talented author, caught my attention, from the first page until the very end. Dark Destroyer is the love story, of two beautiful souls, along a journey filled with life, love and devotion. It's a real page turner to devour! You'll fall in love with Gates, the dark destroyer, even with his flaws.
This time, we enter into the world of William de Wolfe's legendary family, and meet his great-grandson Gates de Wolfe, a rake and a women charmer, but in battle, a destroyer. Lady Kathalin de Lara, a gentle, delicate and sweet person is part of the mighty House of de Lara,! At the age of 5, she had been sent to the Priory, to become a nun, unfortunately, her parents had other plans for her. Gates's mission was to bring her back home, but along the way, their journey will be filled with twists and turns. They will share brief intimate moments of tenderness! Dark Destroyer is the story of a man and a woman, so different from each other! Kathalin's relationship with her mother Rosamund is also complex. Gates's reputation, as a rake, precedes him! Will he win her heart? Will Kathalin finally find true love? Will their love survive against all odds?
Let yourself be swept away into Kathalin and Gates passionate journey rich with beautiful emotions! I found the secondary character, Alexander, quite fun to follow.
Ms. Le Veque really captured the essence of the medieval period ! I strongly recommend this beautiful novel!
I know that in those days lack of birth control was inevitable and sex rampant in the Middle Ages but the knights had also a Code of Chivalry to live by. The way Gates handled his son from Helena, that obviously looked exactly like him, made me lose a little respect for him. Not only one child but three or maybe more would have to grow up as bastards. To me, someone like Kathi that lived with morals embedded in her brain would have some feelings about the children's situations. It was not what I was expecting of this novel. It was an okay read, but one of my least favorites.
With Dark Destroyer you never can guess where the story is going to go. twist and turns keep you gluded to your kindle until the very end. this book really captures emotions and makes you feel with every page. I say this the most honest way, but our hero was a bit of a jerk. Never to our leading lady, but to other people he could be so mean! ( you will know when it gets to that part)
the very simple break down of the story is that our Hero falls inlove with our Leading Lady, but because of his past ( he has many kids) he knows her family will NEVER let them be together.
but with all great Kathryn Le Veque novels, there are many diffrent plots going on and the same time. Not is all it seems with everyone in the household.
the nitty gritty:
pretty much a clean read, one sex scene , but a few mentions of past acts with diffrent women for our Hero
does have a HEA, but make you work for it.
and a huge shocker is NO ONE DIES! ( not a spoiler, it is mentioned in beforehand)
5 out of 5 stars and makes me very excited about what is next!
