Oh my! What a book!

Matthew Wellsbourne appears as a young man in his love story which is entitled "The White Lord of Wellsbourne (the de Russe Legacy)." Gaston de Russe (a personal favorite character and book) appears as a young man in his love story which is entitled "The Dark One: The Dark Knight (de Russe Legacy #2"). Both of their books are entwined as they are best friends and their bond and friendship has a tremendous impact on each others lives. They are both amazing books.

I read this from start to finish in one day, and it's one of the most beautifully-written books I've read this year.

Dark Moon is a story anchored by love, relationships and family, featuring Trenton de Russe, Gaston de Russe's (The Dark One: Dark Knight) first-born. I remembered reading Dark Knight, feeling so much pity at the way Trenton was treated - like a ball that was just pushed around by the emotions of his father, whether in anger at Trenton's mother or in love with another woman.

Trenton and Lysabel

My dry spell has been broken! What a marvelous love story. The theme of this novel should be love. We saw it illustrated in so many forms. The love of two lifelong friends (Matthew and Gaston). The love between fathers and sons (the de Russe men). The love between husbands and wives where communication is so powerful that words are unnecessary (Gaston/Remington and Matthew/Alixandrea). The love between brothers (Trenton and Dane) whether related by blood or not. A woman’s lov

Honor, love or both

Trenton and Lysbeth's story was so entriquing as you start to meet them seeing how in that time that wives are treated anyway they are by their husband and that no one family friends or foe can't do anything to stop them,
Then as you start getting into the story as only Kathryn le Veques, tells them you can't help but keep reading and reading. Then as you start to see the love that is growing the possibility of it being just hero worship or just thinking they love each other yo

Kathryn Le Veque writes buckets of medieval novels, but she keeps them fresh somehow. This has all the good stuff from previous novels (grimy medieval life, family fights, square jawed knights), but there are entertaining new elements - such as two little girls and their ponies.

When Trenton de Russe realises childhood friend Lysabel has been beaten by her husband, he metes out rough justice. This starts a journey for both of them where they are attracted but Trenton is on wife number three. Natu

There are no words to describe this tale adequately. WOW, was my first thought when I got the last page. I knew by Chapter 3 that Trenton de Russe was going to be a new all time favorite, and boy is that an understatement. What an endearing, strong, passionate hero. Our heroin, was no less than he. Lys is a heroin that most women can relate to in one sense or another, strong, loving, protective and compassionate even tho life has give her many reasons to be none of those things. Our hero is much ...more

Absolutely wonderful!

This is an amazing story about a man who isn’t perfect, named Trenton de Russe. His past is littered with relationships and women who have either died, or should have, and his choices have always been a bit on the dark side. While carrying out an order for his king, he and his cohorts come upon and rescue a woman, Lady Lysabel de Wilde. Trenton, who isn’t known for being a man of deep emotion or attachment, realizes that Lysabel was once a girl from his youth, and that their

Disappointing

Full disclosure, I hate impossible love, it’s not my thing, it makes me nervous and it messes with my head. So yeah, this wasn’t my cup of tea.

However, when I read Gaston and Remington’s story, which was also impossible love, I loved it. It was one of my favorite KL books ever, it was so good that the impossible factor didn’t even factor for me.

Here the whole impossible love overpowered the story, it was about that and ONLY that, everything that happened was in service of highlig

Kathryn Le Veque never ceases to amaze me! I have loved all of her books I have read or listened to and she still tops the last one every time. This is definitely one of my newest favorites! If she keeps this up, I’ll need to buy stock in the Kleenex Company. Not only are her storylines new and different each time, but her characters have such an amount of depth to them that we get to see all sides of their personalities!

This is one of the most emotionally heart rending stories of Kathryn's that I have read. It is filled with wonderful conversation that is so engaging and romantic. Trenton and Lysabel, life long friends who are thrown together in harrowing circumstances begin this troubled tale. Shadowed by ghosts and demons of the past, solitary, stoic and handsome Trenton de Russe has never known love and the beautiful, damaged and unloved Lysabel Wellesbourne find themselves caught by the honour of their fami ...more

What if the children of Gaston de Russe and Matthew Wellesborne meet and decide to marry. What if one of their fathers is not in favor of this union? You have the romance of Trenton and Lysabel. Trenton is sent by the King to take custody of a man-who just happens to be Lysabel's husband. The opening of the book is fast paced, but sets the stage for one of the best love story's of the year.When Trenton falls in love, he falls so very hard and doesn't seem to have been told no very often.

Trenton de Russe is an assassin for King Henry VIII, and his reputation makes most people fear him. If he was really as bad as they thought, he could have easily solved his problem. His King would probably not have raised an eyebrow over it. He is however a proud, honourable and sometimes lonely man.
Abused wife Lady Lysabel de Wilde should not really be so happy with the turn her life has taken, but she can at last live without fear. She and her daughters needed a hero and one found them.

A Must to read!

Kathryn Le Veque is a high quality writer that pulled me again into her medieval story 'Dark Moon'! I had to keep on reading to know what would happen next. She is a very descriptive author, so much I could see the surroundings where the story was set.

Trent de Russe and Lady Lysabel Wellesbourne de Wilde's captivating story is filled with strong emotions, tenderness, passion and adventure. It was the perfect medieval romance for me! I am literally addicted to Kathryn Le Veque’s s

Le Veque is always a great read

I can always count on Kathryn Le Veque for an engaging story with rich historical background and the most amazing families. I love the emotion that comes with her relatable story lines and the depth of feeling it evokes in me. Katheryn Le Veque has a pen with power that gives us all of this and more. Go back in time in a turn of the page. You will feel the emotions of the Medevial period!

Meh

Typically I am a huge fan of all of Leveque’s books. This one was just alright. I enjoyed Gaston’s story but not Trenton’s. The plots were too similar. I think she could have come up with something better for the Dark One’s Son. And why do these women have to have so many kids. She was like 32 when they married. I did the the h. Trenton was a little to Whiny for me. I skimmed the last chapter. Her other legacy books are way better.

It was good to revisit old friends in this one. The story was, as always, excellent, but our hero was not quite up to his family standards. His selfishness made him human, but it took him a long time to get to family standards. It made the book interesting to watch him grow and become the man he was capable of becoming. The hit of the book was the little girls, who were irresistible.
