Good Wednesday all , happy hump day . Today I have a very juicy book for you today . DARK AND STORMY KNIGHT( KNIGHTS OF AVALON BOOK 2) by Nina Mason
She’ll risk everything for their love—even her life.
Aspiring screenwriter Gwyn Morland is ready for her big break. That means securing the film rights to elusive author Lady Ruthven’s acclaimed novel—which means traveling to Scotland. It’s a trip timid Gwyn isn’t prepared for, and her fears seem justified when her tour bus careens over a cliff outside of Castle Glenarvon. But the plot thickens when Gwyn is rescued from the brink of death by a handsome and mysterious stranger…
Leith MacQuill is not only the writer behind Lady Ruthven’s novel, but a shape-shifting faery knight bearing a tragic curse: the woman he gives his heart to will die. Saving Gwyn proves to be a dangerous choice when he finds himself falling for her the longer she stays in the castle. Not even his usual BDSM role-playing games are enough to thwart the intense desire they feel for each other. But to stay together, Gwyn and Leith must embark on a dangerous mission into Avalon, the realm of the faeries. Will their love be strong enough to conquer the curse? Or will Gwyn’s new life be stolen from her before it’s even begun?
This is the second book in the Knights of Avalon series and I was so excited when it came out . This series is such a great mixture of history, magic . BDSM folklore and a love that defies all . They are all blended into a story that will make you weak in the knees and shed a tear or two as you read .
Gwyn the young heroine of our story , an aspiring screenwriter , has been a mouse of a person her whole life. She has had a history of abuse and neglect her whole life . So to make a change in her life, she heads to Scotland to sure up the movie rights from an elusive author . But what she doesn't know is that circumstances will throw her into the arms of the man of her dreams . Enter Leith Macquill the knight who has been a recluse since escaping Avalon. An reclusive author that hates tourists, but when he finds Gwyn things seem to change . The more time they spend time together the more they fall in love against what he knows . They find their way towards each other and start to fall in love . They have to fight the forces of Avalon to be together. I loved these characters , they started off so
different . Gwyn was such a sweet almost naïve girl that as you turned the pages , you see her growing and becoming so kick ass and will do anything to get the man of her dreams . Leith to me came off as an arrogant man at the beginning of the book. Until you start to really get into his story. To me he was a hurt and broken man that just wanted to love but couldn't . He wanted love and you can see him falling for Gwyn even though he tries so hard not to.
The author has done a great job mixing the history and the present together . She takes on a journey that is both harrowing and whimsical in some aspects . I like the fact there are two aspects to this story the first part is all sex and more sex. The second part of the book is all about the quest to break the curse . I loved the hot steamy sex between these two Leith is one hot yummy man who oozes sex . In the second part we see the couple work as a team and the love they share . Both parts are so well written and you will be turning pages well into the night . These can be read alone books but should be read in order cause characters from book one show up in book two. There is BDSM in this book and for mature readers . So if you want a intelligent read with hot sex and romance check it out .
