Review: The Royal Flush by D.N Simmons

Today’s first post is a review of The Royal Flush by D.L Simmons.  This is the third book in the Knights of Darkness Chronicles.  This was the first book I have read in the series, but I whole-heartedly recommend it.  Be sure to check out the rest of my review after the excerpt.


The Royal Flush is the third novel in the edgy, action-packed, sexually-charged, Knights of the Darkness Chronicles. In the third installment of this tale, the hunt is on! The coven, Pack and Pride must join forces to stop a group of big game hunters by any means necessary! Hold on to your seat as the Knights take you on yet another wild ride that will not let you go until the last word is read and the book is closed!

Original, sexy and gritty, the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles will suck you in and
take you for a ride you won’t forget!


“Oh, I’m so full right now, but I’ll be ready to eat again in about two hours,” Devin said with a chuckle.

“You and me, both,” Justin agreed.

“I hope you two exchanged phone numbers with all this damn talking you’re doing,” Sergio teased.

“Not yet,” Devin said, “but I think we will.”

Sergio chuckled. “Ahh, I miss my woman,” he said aloud to himself as he stretched his long form.

“I miss my man,” Devin stated.

“Even if he were here, you’d still be missing him,” Sergio said.

“Shut up!” Devin said, faking anger. “That doesn’t matter, because when he is awake there is never a dull moment.”

“Egh, that’s a little too much information for my taste,” Sergio said with a grimace.

Xander chuckled. “My sentiments exactly.”

“What?” Devin asked, looking at both Xander and Sergio. “I’m just saying that I have a lot of fun when I’m around him. We have a lot in common and I love being around him.”

“Is that it?” Sergio asked. “Well, for once your mind wasn’t in the proverbial gutter.”

“No, but clearly yours was,” Devin retorted.

“I hope that this vampire doesn’t go back on his word,” Nagesa stated. Everyone turned, looking at him. He was normally very quiet, and spoke only when he had something to say. Whatever the case, when he did speak, it was always relevant.

“We all hope that this Master vampire is an honorable one. It is true that not all vampires are honorable, as it is true with all beings. Let us hope that Darian knows his Master well,” Xander said thoughtfully.


The Royal Flush was the first in the Knights of Darkness Chronicles that I have had the pleasure of reading, but it most certainly won’t be the last.  I really loved the story and the characters.  It was quite a bit more erotic than I expected.  I thought it would primarily be paranormal but it really mixed the erotic with the story very well.  I loved Darian, Natasha and Xavier’s relationship.  Only in a book like this does a relationship like that work and seem feasible for anyone.  Well, I guess anyone who is a vampire, shape-shifter or mind reader.  I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is open to M/M and M/F/M sex in their books.  It is very well written and highly enjoyable.  I truly can’t wait to go back and see how they got to this point.  I will definitely read any books in the future of this series.
