Review: A Dark and Stormy Knight - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

This Knight of the Crown is driven by a painful past and a patient fury… and his entire life is a lie.

Sir Carlton Morley is famously possessed of extraordinary will, singular focus, and a merciless sense of justice. As a man, he secured his fortune and his preeminence as Scotland Yard’s ruthless Chief Inspector. As a decorated soldier, he was legend for his unflinching trigger finger, his precision in battle, and his imperturbable strength. But as a boy, he was someone else. A twin, a thief, and a murderer, until tragedy reshaped him.

Now he stalks the night, in search of redemption and retribution, vowing to never give into temptation, as it’s just another form of weakness.

Until temptation lands—quite literally—in his lap, taking the form of Prudence Goode.

Prim and proper Pru is expected to live a life of drudgery, but before she succumbs to her fate, she craves just one night of desire. On the night she searches for it, she stumbles upon a man made of shadows, muscle and wrath… And decides he is the one.

When their firestorm of passion burns out of control, Morley discovers, too late, that he was right. The tempting woman has become his weakness.

A weakness his enemies can use against him.

A Dark and Stormy Knight
By Kerrigan Byrne

Review: A Dark and Stormy Knight

“He was no hero. These were just things he did, sweeping up small crimes while he chased nightmares through the night.

Back when he’d attempted to sleep, he’d been tortured by them. Eventually, those nightmares had seeped into the daylight, following him from the dark until they filled every corner of every room. Shades and specters. The ghosts of those he’d killed, of those who’d endeavored to kill him. Of the souls he’d failed to save and the monsters who’d escaped justice.

For decades they’d haunted him, tormented him endlessly each time he dared close his eyes. Until he’d done something about it.

He became the thing from which nightmares ran.”

A night of unbridled passion becomes much more for a reformed thief and the enigmatic woman who captures his reluctant heart in Kerrigan Byrne’s latest, A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT.

Byrne delights us with another phenomenal Victorian Rebels novel brimming with emotion, suspense and romance. This time she imparts the story of Sir Carlton Morley—the mercilessly just and principled Chief Inspector haunted by a broken past. And it’s that brokenness, the relentless pain and grief of it, which has shaped him to be a man accustomed to deception. A man who while decorated and revered by day, is vigilante by night, hiding in shadows in search of redemption.

One late night, Prudence Goode stumbles upon this Knight of Shadows, intent to seize control of her life before she’s forced to marry her two-timing fiancé. Both are swept away by the other, surrendering to a forbidden desire under the cast of darkness.

Circumstance brings them together again in the worst possible way, however, and Carlton is convinced he’s been deceived once more, despite unbidden, intensifying feelings for Lady Goode.

As danger looms and feelings deepen, Carlton and Pru must work through old scars, secrets and insecurities to build a future together.

Sensuous, suspenseful and deliciously scandalous, this is a story rife with all the things we’ve come to love from a Kerrigan Byrne novel, especially the Victorian Rebels. I love the raw and roguish men and the women who undo them. Love learning about the adversity they’ve overcome, seeing them build up the courage to be vulnerable, and ultimately creating a new life for themselves and those they love.

This is an exceptional, deeply satisfying romance that shouldn’t be missed.
