Josh Lanyon Main Title

The White Knight

Book #2 in the Dark Horse series
Contemporary, Romantic Suspense

Actor Sean Fairchild has a not-so-secret admirer: a psycho stalker who thinks taking out the sexy, shy young actor will leave the world a better place. His manager insists Sean needs protection, and Sean’s beginning to think he’s right.

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.

As tension mounts, Sean can’t help turning to Dan, while Dan is finding it harder and harder to say no. Their only chance of a happy ending is if Dan can keep Sean alive -- but what happens when he uncovers the secrets Sean is trying hard to conceal?

Sensual Erotic Romance & Erotica Reviews
I am used to hot, but not gratuitous sex in Lanyon’s books. They often have a lean, pared down feel that is always intense, but some of the scenes in The White Knight took me a bit by surprise. (No more sticky pen for you!) They were intense and loving, with much hot tub goodness. Noice. Compelling and beautifully written, it’s books like these that stay with you. More please.
Rain on the Roof Reviews
This prequel/sequel to Lanyon's 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.
Fallen Angels Review
All right, enough trying to be normal (which my mother says will never happen) I just have to say I friggin LOVED this book. I got to the end of the book and then went back and re-read it. The way Mr. Lanyon wraps the story around the reader is amazing. He wrote the story in both 1st person and 3rd person with current events and flashbacks to the past. It was an incredibly emotional yet revealing approach to getting down to what had happened in the past with Sean and Dan’s relationship, what was currently happening and how to deal with the issues if it was possible.
Tracy's Place Reviews 
Again the book is not what I was expecting (no big Hollywood scenes) but nevertheless a book that got me hooked till the end. And this time for me it's complete, not loose ends, the love story is full, developed and nicely tightened up.
