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.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Colton (Colt) Lane meets Verity Gwynn and her special needs brother, Ryan, on one of the worst days of their lives. Life has beaten them down and they desperately need jobs to survive. Despite how much Colt tells himself to ignore the nagging feeling he has to help them, he ignores it. Soon, Verity and Ryan find themselves in the lives of a mysterious and gruff man. Colt has always kept his head down. Things are easier that way. It’s easy for others if he does this as well. But Verity and Ryan hits a nerve with him. He finds the walls around him coming down the more time he spends with Verity. Despite her hardships in life, she looks at everything with a silver lining. He finds her optimism to be addicting. Gives him hope that just maybe, there is another way to live life. To live rather than exist. But his past threatens the possibility and any sort of feelings he has for Verity.
“Where have you been all my life?”
Verity and Colt have this magnetic chemistry. Neither one can deny. Verity sees Colt beyond his hard exterior. She sees a man that saved her when she was having one of the worst days. A man that did not judge her and her brother, but he looked at them with kindness. With recognition. And that is the man she finds herself falling for. But what happens when someone doesn’t believe they are worthy to love and be loved? Verity just holds on harder. For love doesn’t care about secrets. Love doesn’t understand past lives. Love only know the truth. Love goes where it belongs.
“Her name was want. Her name was need. Her name was truth.”
While Verity sees darkness in Colt, rather than run away, she runs straight into his arms. There is light in his darkness. And Verity recognizes this light that is hidden so deep down within his soul. She chips away at his darkness until it cracks and his light and love simply overflow. His love? It ignites her. Inspires her. His love astounds her. His love is faithful. He loves her fiercely. Fearlessly. And Verity’s love for Colt? Her love saves. Her love overcomes. It bears all things. Even his darkness. Her love IS light.
“Give me your doubts and disquiet. I will silence them.”
Their story is the deepest and mesmerizing love song ever written. The author has this incomparable talent in writing. Her words are poetic. Moving. Overwhelming. Her words easily bring you to tears with their beauty and meaning. Without giving too much detail regarding the specifics of this story, please know that the author gives a voice to the voiceless. A voice to those who think they are forgotten about in society. To the ones feel they are of no relevance or importance. Katy reminds us just how much these special people mean to us. That being different allows us to love those people harder. Deeper. That those people? They matter the most.
“What powerful magic she wielded inside her small body, and how desperately he craved its peace.”
I am absolutely blown away with how deeply I loved this beautiful and brilliant story. My heart is so full. If there was one recipe book for how romance stories are to be written, Katy Regnery would be the author to write it. She never holds back. Her stories push and pull your heart strings. And Dark Sexy Knight is no different. Love can leave you vulnerable. Open. But love also gives hope. Love chases away demons. Love saves. If you are a fan of Katy’s modern fairytales or even if you haven’t read her before, then stop what you are doing and read this book. This book will change you. Inspire you to love differently. This book is a testament to a timeless love.
Katy Regnery, award-winning and Amazon bestselling author, started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract for a winter romance entitled By Proxy.
Now a hybrid author who publishes both independently and traditionally, Katy claims authorship of the six-book Heart of Montana series, the six-book English Brothers series, and a Kindle Worlds novella entitled "Four Weddings and a Fiasco: The Wedding Date," in addition to the standalone novels, Playing for Love at Deep Haven and Amazon bestseller, The Vixen and the Vet.
The Vixen and the Vet is included in the charity anthology Hometown Heroes: Hotter Ever After, and Katy's novella "Frosted" appeared in the Jan '15 anthology, Snowy Days Steamy Nights. Additionally, Katy's short story, "The Long Way Home" appeared in the first RWA anthology (Feb '15), Premiere.
Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, and two dogs create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
Three book besties who love to read and discuss books. We are addicted to all kinds of romance with Alpha Hero's, Kick-ass Heroine's and plenty of angst.
