Tour Review for Dark Sexy Knight by Katy Regnery

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.**

All novels in the ~a modern fairytale~ collection are written as fundraisers.

"Open your eyes and see. This is love. We are a fucking fairytale."

It's not often that you can get an honest story that allows you to fall in love with the characters equally and without abandon. Katy is one of those authors for me that I know I can count on for just that. Katy has a way of bringing the innocent fairytale to life with a little bit of angst, sexiness and a whole lot of love. 

Verity is an honorable girl who handles business and takes care of things....I loved her tenacity. She was a very emotional girl that got handed a tough hand, so she has a skewed outlook on some things. I liked being able to see things through her eyes. She finally gets her fairytale and she gets to know the true power of love. 

Colt is a man with strong convictions, but also has some issues that he has to work through. He was moody. He was protective. He was strong. But I'd like think his passion for things is what helped him get through some tough times. I really liked how he tried to fight the very obvious....and the fact that he was so passionate and emotional with Verity made me fall even more in love with him. He really had a good demeanor, even if people sometimes only saw the tough exterior to him. 

Verity saw it all and she wouldn't back down from him. They had one of those relationships that you know fate intervened and stepped in. I'm a HUGE believer in fate and he was where he wasn't supposed to be at just the right time. The love that blossomed from this was beautiful. It taught them both so much and allowed them to grow with each other. 

Katy's words undo me. I love her words. This was a beautiful book and I am just in love. It's completely sigh-worthy. 

The only reason I couldn't give this one a full 5 stars was because I wasn't able to initially connect (which is odd for me with her books) and the story started out slow, but once you get into the meat of the story, and the love that is so prevalent between Colt and Verity, you can't help but smile while you read their story. I love her fairytales series and can't wait to add this one to my signed collection!!!

“Give me your doubts and disquiet. I will silence them.”

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 exclusively self-published, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled Blueberry Lane Series which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story and Ambler families of Philadelphia, the four-book, bestselling a modern fairytale series, the standalone novel, Playing for Love at Deep Haven and a standalone novella, Frosted. 

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015, and four of her books: The Vixen and the Vet (a modern fairytale), Never Let You Go (a modern fairytale), Falling for Fitz(The English Brothers #2) and By Proxy (Heart of Montana #1) have been #1 genre bestsellers on Amazon. 

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.

  1. Love your review Bee. I know I'm gonna love this book. I also have a daughter who has special needs. So I know I will connect with Verity. This would be my first book of Katy and I'm excited to fall in love with her and her books.
