Blurb: 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.**
Review: What a wonderful story and such great characters! Katy Regnery’s writing just gets smoother and more nuanced with each book she writes, and this story is so touching and honest. She effortlessly takes us into the lives of two characters who are struggling–struggling to find a home, a place to feel safe, and someone to love.
Colt has secrets in his past that he’s terrified will destroy his future, so he continues to stay in a job and a place that doesn’t make him happy.
Verity is petrified about what’s going to happen to her and her brother Ryan. How will she be able to take care of him? They’ve lost the family farm, but they can’t lose each other.
When they meet, will Colt give into his feelings and help these two people he’s just met? Or will he let his fear keep them apart?
Katy’s modern fairytales are always wonderful reads, but even better–are fundraisers. Twenty-five percent (25%) of the net profits of all e-book sales of Dark Sexy Knight in June and July 2016 will benefit The Prospector Ridgefield, an amazing organization that offers special-needs people gainful employment.
I grew up with a special needs family member and subsequently had a child with developmental delays. The protectiveness I felt growing up and feel now for my own child is overwhelming; the fear I feel for his future drives me to seek out options like the fundraiser’s Prospector Theater. I’m so glad to be a part of helping this organization!
The ~a modern fairytale~ collection, which includes six standalone, completely unrelated novels, are inspired by beloved fairy tales. All novels in the ~a modern fairytale~ collection are written as fundraisers:
