Early Release **** Dark Sexy Knight ****

I'm so excited to announce the early release of 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.

**Contemporary Romance. Due to profanity, mild violence and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.**

Globug's Review

I have to say this story is something special. It goes beyond just giving us a knight in shining armor that rescues the damsel in distress. My most favorite part of the story happens to be the supporting characters that inspire Colt and Verity to be devoted to them. 

Colt Lane may not have model good looks but his strength of character quickly has me imagining him as the sexiest man alive. He has no problem finding companionship with one night stands or no strings attached hook-ups but those are becoming less than fulfilling and usually leave him feeling empty and alone. It's clear that keeping his past a secret is more important to him than finding love and happiness. He believed the last thing he wanted was more responsibility or a relationship so why then can't he just walk away from Verity when it's obvious that she comes with a lot of baggage.

Verity has her hands full trying to take care of her older brother with special needs. They recently lost their parents and their home. Her chance meeting with Colt at a job fair seems too good to be true. He seems to be so gruff and unapproachable but his actions speak volumes about his heart of gold. Not to mention Colt's body is like that of a God.

Verity and Colt both grew up in somewhat dysfunctional families. The major difference is that Colt had loving family members that took him in after his parents died whereas Verity and her brother have no one. Verity's brother will forever be child-like and people can be cruel to those that are different. It breaks my heart when Ryan is bullied. Colt is so gentle with Ryan and fiercely protective of him and Verity. So even though the author mentions several times that Colt isn't very handsome I can only imagine him as gorgeous. 

Now I've mentioned how amazing Colt is and that's before knowing his whole back story. So when his past is revealed and the author introduces his cousin to the story I swooned. He had me heart and soul. I don't want to say much about his cousin because it would take away from your experience of the reveal. I will say that his relationship with her only deepened how invested I was in the story. 

In the end, the author gives you not just one love story but two. She also addresses a real issue that mentally challenged children and adults have to face in society. Another added bonus is that proceeds from the purchase of the books in the modern day fairy tales collection go to support different charities. I've always had a special place in my heart for the mentally challenged, especially those with downs syndrome and so this story will forever be on my list of favorites. I was so moved by the author's personal reasons for writing this story shared in the acknowledgements. I can honestly recommend all of the author's books.
