The Dark Horse

Paul Hammond is dead. That’s what tough and sexy LAPD Detective Daniel Moran tells his lover, Hollywood actor Sean Fairchild—and Sean wants to believe him, but what about those threatening postcards in Hammond’s handwriting? What about the fact that he’s seeing Hammond everywhere he goes? Yes, Sean’s had some emotional problems in the past, but that was a long time ago and he’s not imagining things, so why is Dan looking at him that way?

The White Knight

It’s a Hollywood cliché: the hot and handsome bodyguard. But in the case of LAPD Detective Daniel Moran, it’s all true. Dan is everything Sean ever wanted in a leading man, but Dan’s kind of an old-fashioned guy. It’s his job to keep Sean safe and in one piece -- happy is someone else’s problem.

... an absolutely riveting suspense tale, by far one of the best this reviewer can remember. Rich in depth of characterization with a twisty plot that keeps the reader guessing, this book is truly marvelous. The m/m intimacy is woven into the story and is somewhat explicit, but is never belaboured. It is couched in the emotional attraction between Dan and Sean. Author Josh Lanyon carefully explores the background of Sean's psychological issues and brings the characters to life in a way so vivid that the reader will feel as if he is watching the story unfold rather than simply reading it in a book.... a most excellent novel and deserving of highest praise."

Sensual Erotic Romance & Erotica Reviews on The White Knight
This prequel/sequel to Lanyon's The Dark Horse that first featured Sean and Dan is what Josh Lanyon's fans have been waiting for. Sean's voice is so rich with emotion and you can't help but want to give him a big hug because he is much like a scared little boy who wants love and is afraid to ask. Dan is there to be Sean's support, but also wants Sean to grow up and act like adult. These two have a nice balance with one another. The love scenes with Sean and Dan are lovely and their relationship is everything you would want between two people who are in love and care for one another so deeply. The White Knight is one read that shouldn't pass you by.
