And Katy Regnery does it again. Delivers an incredible book that I have devoured in less than a day. I have to say that her Modern Fairytale series is what brought me to her, and her additions to this series continue to WOW me each time one comes out. Dark Sexy Knight is based on Camelot brings us to Colton Lane and Verity Gwynn. Verity is on the verge of being homeless, falling on hard luck while taking care of her disabled brother when she meets Cole. He is immediately taken by her, and does not want to be! Time after time, he is helping out while silently scolding himself, but the chemistry is too strong. There is much love, angst, hate, jealousy, bullying, sadness, anger, you name it the emotion is there. You are continually feeling each and every one as the scenes play out too, that is the magic of Katy's writing. I have to say, I loved Colt. To me, the perfect hero, anger issues and all, protecting those he loved no matter the consequence to himself. I have to say though, that I was totally taken with Ryan. The portrayal of this gentle giant, with his total innocence of life and pure love and joy with things just made you want to hug him.
This book in particular really hit a note with me with the characters of Ryan and Melody. Tackling those sensitive topics of mental disabilities can be touchy. These two characters, along with Miss Bonnie's home show us that the mentally disabled have feelings and have worth. You can't help but fall in love with them!
Becca Ballenger gives an amazing performance. Her narration is well done, with a variety of both male and female voices, each being distinctive to the character. Loved it!

Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Sexy Knight to be better than the print version?
Yes, definitely. Narrator Becca Ballenger did a fantastic job animating the story and seemed especially authentic when voice acting Ryan and Melody. Those two stole my heart as much as the hero and heroine did if not more.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Ryan because of how he related to others in his circle.
What does Becca Ballenger bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She really gave each character a distinct vocal personality in a way that I couldn't have.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The entire epilogue really. Melody and Ryan's individual conversations with Verity were so touching and beautiful.
Any additional comments?
This one is tied with The Vixen & The Vet as my two top feel good favorites in this standalone series of modern fairytales. Bravo, Katy Regnery!
Swoooonnn!!!! Wowsers!! This was a beautiful and utterly romantic fairytale that pulled at my heartstrings and induced goosebumps (the good kind!) ! I fell in love with both Colton and Verity. Both characters were so lovable with their sweet, caring and loyal natures! And Ryan and Melody were just as amazing and crucial to this story. 5 Viking Knight Stars!!
