Hi everyone welcome to another My Book Boyfriend post co-hosted by yours truly whilst Missie @ The Unread Reader concentrates in her final semester of school.
Check out the lovely new meme button Missie very kindly had made for us all to use how cool is that?
On to my book boyfriend of the week- meet Dante from The Dark Knight
The Dark Knight is the King's Assasin and master of disguise his new mission is to whisk Avalene de Forshay away from her horrible aunt to ensure Faulke Segrave is not able to marry Avalene and use her connections to lead a civil war against the King. Disguised as a Knight Dante must convince Avalene he is the honourable Sir Percival sent by her father to save her.
I don't tend to read a lot of historical romances but The Dark Knight completely swept me away. As an assassin Dante is a dark lethal figure but he has to act as a chivalrous knight to convince Avalene to escape with him, the more time he spends with her, her goodness and faith in him starts to really change him and they both begin to fall in love. I always love stories where a dark character finds redemption through the love of a good woman so I was rooting for Dante whilst gnawing on my fingernails waiting for the truth about him to come out and desperately wanting to know what Avalene's reaction would be, would the King's assassin survive a young woman's rejection?
I picked a couple of Sir Percival/Dante quotes that made me swoon like a true medieval maiden.
You can check out my review of The Dark Knight here.
When thinking of pictures of chivalrous knights I wanted to picture a dark handsome swoon worthy fellow but instead I couldn't get this picture out my mind of Monty Python's Knights with the coconut shells adding the horses hoof sound affects.
