It was great to finally read Reynold's story. I love him even more after seeing him find his way to his own happy ending. Reynold really made his leg more important than it was. He thought that it was all that anyone ever saw about him, and felt bad because it made him feel different from his brothers. He needed to strike out on his own and find himself. Fortunately, his pilgrimage brought him to a group of people badly in need of a hero. Sabine and her remaining people believe they are being pr ...more
Reynold de Burgh takes a last look at his family's castle with a bitter sigh. Surrounded by his brother's happy families this black sheep decides its time for him to move on. Right before he manages to sneak away, the l'Estrange women gift him with some parting gifts and the knowledge that his plans for an aimless pilgrimage may not be as aimless as he thinks. Wary of their matrimony-minded meddlesome ways, but secure in the knowing that marriage is not meant for one such as he, Reynold sets off ...more

I found this book to be lame (no pun intended). Reynold de Burgh has a slight lameness which hasn't slowed him down in life. He's a knight but his brothers teased him when he was young and women have no interest in him. Poor poor pitiful me. He might be gorgeous but he is pathetic and annoying through most of the book. I almost put this down but figured it's only 277 pages, surely I can stand it that long. I'm glad I finished it because I liked the ending but man-o-man it was tough. I did like t ...more
3.5 stars - might be spoilerish!!

I thought this book was pretty good, however I found the romance sadly lacking. If not for the mention of Reynold paying for favors and two kisses - I would have thought this was a young adult book. There were absolutely no love scenes.

On the upside, the mystery of Grim's End was interesting and at times baffling.

Reynold is the second to youngest de Burgh son and he has a bad leg. In past books he has been described as grim and brooding. And he is the same in t

Δεν μπορώ να πω ότι μου άρεσε, αν κ είχε ασυνήθιστη πλοκή κ δράση για αρλεκιν, το θέμα του δράκου δεν με έπεισε από την αρχή, οι ήρωες ήταν νερόβραστοι (η ηρωίδα δεν υπήρχε σχεδόν σαν προσωπικότητα). Ο Ρένολντ μας ζάλισε με την εμμονή του με τα αδέλφια του. Ο.κ. κύριος το καταλάβαμε, η οικογένεια σου είναι τόοοοσο υπέροχη που σου προκάλεσε σύμπλεγμα κατωτερότητας!! Εν τω μεταξύ… το love story που είναι;;; Πουυ είναι;; Υποτίθεται ότι είναι ερωτικό αρλεκιν, ερωτικό λέμεεεε.

Deburgh Serisini çok seviyorum her macerayı okumak bana ayrı keyif veriyor desem yalan olmaz..

Fakat serinin 6.kitabına ben adapte olamadım sanırım başlarda okurken biraz durağan gibi geldi bana..Bu macera Reynold DeBugh'a aitti..Sayfalar geçtikçe de ejderhalar filan pek sarmadı beni nedense..Serinin en beğendiğim kitapları Dunstan, Goeffrey ve Robin'in hikayeleri idi..Yine de Kara Şövalye DeBurgh'u okurken kitap tam da tahmin ettiğim gibi çıktı..Ailenin kara koyunu..Kendine göre olan kusurunu be

Ben bu haftamı tamamen Harlequin'lere ayırdım hep onları okudum ve elimdeki bütün Harlequinleri bitirdim tek biri hariç... O da serinin son kitabı olan "Son DeBurgh". Onu da kısa zamanda okuyup yorumlarım artık :))

Deborah Simmons kaleminden çıkan "The DeBurgh" serisinin altıncı kitabı olan "Kara Şövalye DeBurgh" de bitti. Kitap Reynold DeBurgh'u anlatıyor...

Serinin diğer kitaplarına göre çok durağan geldi bana. Serinin kitaplarını pek sırayla okumadım ve h

O guerreiro e sua insegurança.

Acho que o título, O Cavaleiro Negro, já diz tudo, Reynold é o irmão: misterioso, quieto, carrancudo, desconfiado. O que é mais estranho, apesar dele ter consciente, de suas habilidades como “guerreiro”, é totalmente inseguro em relação aos sentimentos que desperta nas pessoas.

É incrível como ele não se enxerga como homem, não percebe sua própria beleza. A única coisa que ele vê é o defeito na perna, como se ele nada mais fosse que um coxo.

A princípio fiquei muito

This is a book I shouldn't have liked. Dragons? Knights? Really? But I really loved this book. The hero is hot, hot, hot and the heroine is a strong sister. Because of the time period, you will forgive their fruit-loopiness. Fav, fav scene at the end with the brothers in black on horseback, all pounding hooves and sexiness. Would have liked a little more steam though...

"Quante persone cercano ovunque l'amore? Invece voi lo fuggite, ogni volta che vi viene offerto liberamente. Vi siete allontanato dalla vostra famiglia e adesso voltate le spalle anche alla donna che vi ama."

Nel complesso il romanzo è carino, però, il protagonista maschile più che un eroico cavaliere sembra un giovane timido e un po' testone!!!

What can I say, I love a „wounded“ hero and Reynold its wounded body and soul! But he is also sensitive, inteligent, clever, caring, patient, generous and hot!!!
So It was nice to see him grow in confidence and overcome his insecurities to finally be abel to accept Sabines affection.

Reynold is not the "black sheep", he's the best De Burgh!
I liked his story more than the other brother's. Needless to say, this is my favorite book in all the series. :3

Bir ara ejdarha olayından sıkılsamda idare ederdi işte. Ama seri içindeki en sevdiğim kitap Geoffrey'in ki hala. Sonuncu kardeş Nicolas'ı da okuyunca tam belli olucak ama bence değişmeyecek gibime geliyor :))
