First of all: If you haven't read The Dark Horse and The White Knight yet, I think you should prepare to read them in a row, because the books twine together very nicely.

The Dark Horse was the first title Josh Lanyon wrote specifically for the m/m market. So, if you really stop to think about it, this book kind of made history, right?

What I most liked about The Dark Horse was the intimate moments between Sean and Dan: When they were talking, touching, holding each other and making love. Most of those moments were not perfect, nor were they smooth and polished – and that made them so special and fragile and perfect eventually. And the dialogue between the two men was charming to read. It was an odd (but very successful) combination of such serious topics and hilarious comments. And it really made my heart ache how at least at first Sean thought that he didn't deserve a man like Dan.

And I also think that I’ll finally have to read The Charioteer that I’ve postponed for a long time. :)
