    One thought on “The Dark One: Dark Knight”

    1. One of the best Knights in a Medieval RomanceEVER. "But for my own part If a book is well writtenI always find it too short."- Jane Austin That is EXACTLY how I feel about this book. Because let me tell you this book is EPIC. The hero is epicd its also epically LONG. But for me I wanted it to go on and on because I liked the characters (especially the hero) so much.Sir Gaston is the hero of this story. And what a hero he isHe is dark, brooding, and at first glance many say unfeeling. How very VE [...]

    2. This is the 3rd of Kathryn Le Veque's Medieval books I've read. While I have thoroughly enjoyed the story line of each of the books, I found this one had much more issues with historical accuracy than the others (perhaps because it is one of her earlier works). For example, at one point she speaks of the smell of oppossums, but possums are an American animal, and thus, would not have been present in 15th Century England (this was not the only such mistake, but it was the one that bothered me the [...]

    3. Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Wow what a book. Yes it is long, But it was an amazing story. The hero is awesome! Can't even put into words how awesome his is. The dark one indeed!It was a fantastic epic love story. Not your typical angst, and secrets historical romance. It was wonderful! They hero, Gaston and heroine, Remington had great chemistry and some wonderfully written sex scene, not graphic or erotica, very nicely written.There was so much wonderful dialogue throughout the entire book.Alway [...]

    4. This author had a few free ebooks, which I enjoyed immensly, a few of her books are my all-time favorites. So I was pleased to see that she had 2 new books out. This book is really long, while reading I glanced at the progress bar of my ereader and wondered what was still to come.This story is really hard to read sometimes, as the leading characters have had some really awful times to live through. It starts with a takeover of the keep that houses the heroin and her sisters. She is the wife of a [...]

    5. Powerful Medieval!I am a huge fan of Kathryn Le Veque's books. I truly loved THE DARK ONE: DARK KNIGHT. This story was fantastic from beginning to end. Really captivating with two beautiful characters Sir Gaston, the hero and Remington, the woman in his life! Ms. Le Veque nicely blended strong, believable and complex characters into her amazing medieval adventure. Powerful emotions that will take you for a roller coaster ride! This author is a high quality writer who knows how to pull you in her [...]

    6. Not sure why I gave 5 stars but I am sure it doesn't deserve it. I am done with Le Veque.Was planning on re reading some of her books, until I got fed up with the shitty heros. Not changing my rating just yet. Have to work up my nerve to struggle through this one for a reevaluation and rating adjustment.

    7. What a ride! This story was epic! I really liked it! I had some minor issues with it, that's why I gave it a 4 star rating, but overall it was a great read! This was my first Kathryn Le Veque book but it won't be my last.

    8. Well I have never written a review before but here it goes. This book has me torn: At the beginning I loved it but after the first 50% I became so annoyed with the characters - both Remington and Gaston - that I almost did not finish it. I like long books but please do not trag it out unnecessarily!! All the bad things that happen to Remi on and on and on are just unbelievable! Her hysterics and whiny attidute became so annoying after a while! I understand that she is an abused women, but why do [...]

    9. Re-read:This is a beautifully written story with well rounded characters, an engaging plot and beautiful descriptions. The secondary characters are AMAZING and you can't help but love them. My heart ached for all that Remy and her sisters went through but it was so nice to see them blossom once Gaston came along. He might be The Dark One but he has a heart of gold. There's not many heroes that can top him. That POS husband of Remy's deserved so much more than he got but he does get his, eventual [...]

    10. Powerful Medieval I am a huge fan of Kathryn Le Veque's books. I truly loved THE DARK ONE: DARK KNIGHT. This story was fantastic from beginning to end.

    11. If I could have given this book zero stars, I would have. I bought four books as a package set for $0.99 on and thankfully I didn't spend more. This book drug on not making any progress until I was ready to rip out my eyes. The characters are stereotypes and weak at best. Nearly half the book was the female sobbing, going into hysterics, swooning, or pitching a fit, crying and batting her lashes until she got her way. Everything in the book is over explained and I could not wit for it to end. T [...]

    12. Great fun - I think this is my favourite Le Veque so far. Gaston was a convincing hero and Remington had my sympathy the whole way through. I thought her husband, Guy, was a little to much the stereotypical villain at times. We're told how evil he is throughout the story, which, for me, made him less scary. Show me how evil he is - don't tell me! However, I thought the author handled some really tricky issues - rape and abuse - delicately and convincingly. A well-written, medieval adventure that [...]

    13. Great storyline, lovely and long, which I always enjoy in a book, I hate it when books only have a couple of hundred pages. It would probably have been a 5 star, if it had more historical fact/detail. I also felt that the language was a bit modern in places. Will definitely be reading more from this author.

    14. Just when you thought not another bad thing could happen to the main female characterBAM!!!! Something else happens and it. just. keeps. going.Epic is definitely a good description for it.

    15. This book is 774 pages! After re-reading it a second time, it is still an awesome page turner. I loved it.

    16. More authors need to feel free to write a story the length they wish to write. Forcing a manuscript under a "paperback or 400-page length novel" shorts us, the readers, of a good story. I am so thankful that Ms. Le Veque saved this over 700 page length story until she was able to publish it without an editor's restrictions.There is so much that is rich in description about this story that you are drawn in, and become a part of that world that belongs to Gaston, the Dark Knight, Remington & h [...]

    17. Gaston and RemingtonI so loved. This book, since it was longer than Kathryn le Veques other books it was so much more involved. I really loved the more details of their relationship, the description of both their pasts to why they were the way they becameThis book had me so angry that women were so treated in the way Remington and her sisters were but then again that was the medieval era. Then laughing at the hijinks of Rory had me laughing so hard then when death was close I was crying.The ups [...]

    18. Where to start. The fact it was over 800 pages didn't deter me at all since I like to get into a good story and fortunately I'm a quick reader. Personally, I'm glad the author didn't try to break the story up into several books or worse, cut some of it out. This story drew me in from the very first pages and I found myself reading into the wee hours to see what happened next.If a book can keep my interest and the story can make me feel as though I'm there, living the story, it's a success. The a [...]

    19. This is an epic book in every sense.The pages go past so quickly it took no longer to read than some books with half the amount of pages.After the battle of Bosworth King Henry VII is on the throne. He sends Gaston De Russe,the most feared knight in the land, to Mt.Holyoak in Yorkshire ,A keep that has been confiscated from a prisoner of war, to keep the peace and train his Knights.Remington is the Lady of the keep . She knows she has no choice but to surrender Mt.Holyoak to Sir Gaston. She and [...]

    20. An epic adventure and love story - this author is an excellent story teller, taking you away to another place and time! I have fallen into her stories and just loved being there.Unfortunately, the two books of hers that I have read could really benefit from an editor. If you can see past the grammar mistakes (things that pass a spell check but still draw the eye) and her occasional use of modern dialog that does not quite fit the era, then you will find a wonderful, long, exciting read. Sometime [...]

    21. An epic tale that demonstrates Murphy's law ie anything that can wrong, it will.This story put me through an emotional ringer. Funny practical jokes, SWOON as the couple falls in adulterous love, horror & disbelief at the madness & cruelty of manipulative spouses, anger at the idiot church's representatives dithering on annulment proceedings, anguish where family was in life threatening situations.I enjoyed the journey.

    22. If I remember correctly this is the first of Kathryn Le Veque's books that I read. I fell in love with it very quickly. I have loved every one of her books since. I am madly collecting them so I don't miss one. :) It is a very long book, which is a major plus, IMO. Gaston is wonderful. Remington is a sweet and strong woman. Sir Guy, her husband is a horribly abusive man This is the story of Gaston and Remington's love and their struggle to be together. I need to read it again :)

    23. This is a very long book, chock full of events, some of them sad, some horrific, some just there, but a lot of slow spots as well - even if these two love birds do have far too much time on their hands. So to speak. But even though there was a lot of busyness, almost none of it is riveting or even that interesting. So if you like a very long book that just goes on and on, this one's for you.

    24. I truly loved The Dark One: Dark Knight. It was wonderful it made me not want to put it down. Because the story flowed so well, to me, it did not matter how long the book was, I just wanted to continue reading. Thank you to Kathryn Le Veque for once again sharing her wonderful gift with us. I look forward to your next book.

    25. I absolutely loved it !!! It was so good from beginning to end with non-stop everything in between. A woman abused by her husband .Sisters that protect each other the best they could from such a horrible situation. A child wanting to protect his mother and the knight that would protect then save them all.
