Everyone loves to get caught up in an enchanting medieval fantasy about conquering knights who swoop in to save the golden-haired damsel in distress and DARK SEXY KNIGHT by Katy Regnery, a modern retelling of the Legend of Camelot, is pure storybook splendor!!
This is the sweet fable of a down on her luck young lass named Verity Gwyn who gets swept off her feet by a big, strong, broodingly sexy “Viking Knight” after he swoops to her rescue in her darkest hour! The LAST thing Colton Lane wants to do is play the good Samaritan, but there is just something about pretty, petite Verity and her ‘”man-child” brother that tugs at him. Try as he might, he cannot walk away. Even though every single sensible bone in his body is roaring at him to do just that. Before he knows it, the scowling, hot tempered Neanderthal has not only secures her and her Ryan jobs with his employer but gives them a roof over their heads—in his humble abode, no less!-- when they are evicted from their fleabag motel. He doesn’t t want to care. He didn’t want to feel. And he most certainly does NOT want to fall in love. Because deep down in his achingly lonely heart he knows never be worthy of a sweet angel with cornflower blue eyes and bright, sunshiny smile.
Talk about opposites attracting!!! But our spunky heroine refuses to be intimidated by Colton’s dark glowers, bursts of pure, primal, protective rage, incessant cussing or gruff demeanor. Instead, she cherishes every single part of him---“The Sweet and brutal. Tender and fierce. Taciturn and passionate.” In her worshipful eyes, he became the gallant protector she’d only dreamed about and her world suddenly became full of bright, glorious possibilities! Most specially, love and the elusive dream of forever. Could he be the good luck charm she’s been searching for all her life?
Ahh the sweet enchantment!! It’s a rarity for me to fall wildly, completely, irrevocably in love with a hero and heroine at first sight but it happened. In. This. Book. I just can’t resist dark, growly, tarnished Alpha heroes and dinner theater knight Colton Lane makes me want to stand up and cheer! He is so bereft inside I felt his aching loneliness as if it were my own. And Verity with her girl-next-door goodness, sunshiny smile and sparkly disposition is the perfect woman to chisel away at Colton's steely armor and light up the dark corners of his heart with light and warmth and love. He is far from perfect (thank GOD!!)--a Dark Sexy Beast, who despite his rugged masculinity and hard, chiseled physique, is not exactly Mr. GQ either. But despite his physical scars and soul deep imperfections, he is chivalrous to the core, fiercely loyal, and more like the Viking knight he portrays than he chooses to admit!!
Colton is such a delicious paradox for as savage as he can be when he battles his foes to defend the honor of those who have been terribly wronged, he is just as exquisitely gentle and sweetly doting on the homefront. Not only with the heroine, but in his interactions with Down syndrome his cousin, Melody who has been lovingly entrusted to his care, as well as with Verity’s developmentally disabled brother Ryan.
The chemistry between Colton and Verity was pure MAGIC. . There is such a poignant, smolderingly sexy, visceral connection between this enamoured duo that they gave me goose bumps and made my heart flutter in my chest. Ms. Regnery takes her sweet time playing out each beautiful beat of this romance, serving up a tantalizing slow burning passion that is so swooningly romantic and wild and fierce it literally stole my breath!
The author infuses their romantic interactions with so much homespun charm that in many ways it feels like old fashion courtship with one itty exception. The chemistry between this Verity and Colton is blazing hot! So combustible in fact that his book has the steamiest first kiss I have probably ever read.
But scorching interludes aside, at the heart o this love story is a sweepingly romantic tale about a tarnished hero and his sweet, effervescent girl of his dreams, two kindred spirits whose souls recognize each other from the very start and who find peace, love, contentment, acceptance, shelter and utter joy in each other’s arms.
For me, this book is not about big, grandiose gestures but rather reveling in the everyday enchantment. The pure simplicity of holding hands while driving home from work. Sharing a glass of wine and munching on popcorn on their movie date nights. Verity tucking her big brother into bed, special zoo outings with Melody and Ryan and “hugs and kisses and smiles and songs and ‘I love yous.'"Seemingly innocuous, slice of life moments of which the sum total end up being so monumentally epic in breadth and scope.
The scenes with Verity’s brother Ryan in particular are among the most palpable for me in the novel. The close knit sibling bond between them is so poignant and gutwrenchingly real, resonated with me on such a personal level, I was constantly on the brink of tears. I just loved Ryan to pieces! This sweet innocent gentle giant who understood so little of the world but the one thing he understood was love in its purest form.
In closing, DARK SEXY KNIGHT is so much more than a whimsical Modern Fairytaleabout a chivalrous Viking Knight and his beloved fair haired damsel in distress who conquer impossible odds and blissfully ride off into the sunset together. It is a story about "Family. Love. Safety. Home. Happiness." The perfectly imperfect “sweet place” in the beautifully textured fabric of our lives!!
Verity is lovely. She’s almost too lovely at times, she is unendingly patient with her brother Ryan, and persistent in her acceptance of Colt and all his angsty alpha-ness. Verity’s life has been rough, she’s always been an afterthought, never the priority, and she is convinced that she is cursed with bad luck. But she puts on a brave face, revels in her close relationship with her brother, and sees Colt for the gallant hero that he is.
Colt was the main draw for me in this story. Much like Verity, Colton Lane has had a difficult life. Raised by his aunt, Colt has responsibilities to his family that have dissuaded him from allowing himself to fall in love or to concentrate on his own goals. While he is hot tempered and gruff on the outside, Colt is the classic knight in shining armor, always coming to the rescue for those weaker than himself. His initial hesitance and final surrender to his love for Verity is so romantic, its breathtaking.
Finally, I don’t feel like I can fully review Dark Sexy Knight without touching on Katy Regnery’s beautiful descriptions of both caregivers and of people with special needs. There is nothing condescending or overly sentimental here, it is just an honest book about people who love other people, and their journeys to happiness.
