Overview

When faced with a dangerous new rival, Regency London's hottest lead singer is forced to place his singing career in the hands of a sexy widow.

Bad Boy Rockstar romance meets Historical Romance.

Reid Follett enjoys all the lustful benefits that come from being a war hero on the battlefield at Waterloo. Every woman in London wants to bed him. And Reid is never a man to disappoint a lady.
But the gloss of winning the war is starting to fade. Reid and his friends find themselves being challenged by a new group of talented Italian musicians who are taking their place in the hearts and bedrooms of the wicked women of the ton.
England's bad boys must rise to the occasion and take on these interlopers at their own game. With Reid as their conductor and baritone the Noble Lords Quartet is born.
Reid's ego however, does not match his singing ability and he soon discovers that to win he is going to have to put aside his pride and take singing lessons.
Widowed mother of one Lavinia Jones is the perfect teacher for him. Discrete, and ready to do his bidding. The fact that she is a dark-haired temptress is simply a bonus. Reid intends to use her to get what he wants, then he will toss her aside.
Lavinia however, is no push over and Reid soon discovers that she is the one holding all the power in their relationship. Without her guidance he will never be able to master the right note and go back to his seductive ways.
The closer they work together, the less they can resist one another. A fiery sexual encounter leaves them both wondering just where the music stops and where the heart takes over.
But Lavinia has a secret past of her own, and Reid finds himself suddenly facing his own jealous nature when it comes to the woman who has stolen his heart.
Can he set aside his rock and roll lifestyle to secure the heart of the one woman who sets his blood on fire?
The Regency Rockstars series is a new twist on Historical and Rock Star romance. Stories of war-scarred English lords who are bad boy musicians and the women who dare to love them.

Reid and his friends are rakes, there is no question about that. They were returning war heroes and they used that to their full advantage to get their share of women in their beds. But when a group of Italian musicians seems to be cutting into their territory, they decide that they need to do something about it. They decide to create the Noble Lords. While Reid's friends all play instruments, he is only a passable singer. He decides to help help from an instructor. When he arrives at his first lesson, he learns that his instructor is a woman... a very beautiful woman. Can he stay focused long enough on his end goal of being a better singer or will his lustful thoughts get the better of him? Lavinia is a war widow trying to raise her young son. After meeting Reid the first time, she thought he wouldn't show up again. But she was wrong. Now she must spend her time trying to ignore the attraction she feels for the known rake so that she doesn't get her heart broken. But could there be a chance of a HEA with the man she is falling for? I really enjoyed this story, but I'll have to tell you that I almost gave up on it at the beginning. The story starts with Reid talking about how easy it is to get sex and that he has it daily and sometimes more than once a day. I just kept wondering what kind of VD does he have after being with all those women, eww! But, I stuck with it and really enjoyed the story. Once Reid and he buddies were knocked off their pedestals, they were much more likable! I really liked watching the interactions between Reid and Lavinia. She didn't let him get away with the antics he has gotten away with for years and he didn't know what to think about it. I'm excited to see that changes that come with the other members of the group!

Reid is the first book in the fun new Regency Rockstars series. The series is based on four lords who have returned from the war as heroes, but their popularity to the wicked women is in danger. A group of handsome Italian musicians is stealing the show! The lords decide to challenge the Italians and start their own musical quartet known as the Noble Lords. The perspective of the story from a male and the storyline of regency rockstars is original and very entertaining. Reid, Viscount Follett, was taking on the role of singer, but after hearing the Italians perform he knew he needed help improving his voice. To step up his game he decides to take private singing lessons. He wasn’t expecting the singing tutor, L. Jones, to be a feisty woman or as intimidating. He was used to women gushing over him, but Lavina was not impressed with his title or his voice. As the Noble Lords become more popular, Reid realizes he has no interest in any woman but Lavinia. He is not interested in marriage but two of the lords are being pushed to marry by the end of the summer. Reid is determined the quartet will be a success and have a carefree, fun summer before they get married. Lavinia had been disowned by her family when she married her husband, Peter. Now with Peter gone, she is having to support herself and her son, Jonathan. She takes Reid on as a student but has no expectations that he can stick with the vigorous training. She feels the attraction between Reid and herself, but she tries to deny it. She doesn’t see how there can be a future for them together. This was an interesting book with an original storyline. The characters were well developed and the sneak preview of the other three lords caught my interest. I can’t wait until the next book comes out!

Reid Follett, Owen Morrison, Kendal Grant, Callum Sharp are war heroes, rakes of the first order, handsome, and quite good with the ladies. That is until a quartet of handsome and talented Italian musicians comes to London. All of a sudden, Reid and his friends are being outmaneuvered by the newcomers when it comes to the winning the attention of the ladies. What to do? The four friends are not without musical talent, so they decide to form a quartet of their own. The Noble Lords, their band, is formed to compete with, and hopefully outdo the Italians, with their music and with the ladies. Will they succeed? In this first book of Sasha Cottman’s new series, we meet the friends and learn a bit about them and their situations, setting up the other stories in the series. Reid’s story is a delicious treat. Told from his point of view, it is engaging, has a good dose of drama, and is laugh-out-loud funny. The characters interesting and likeable. The men are talented and arrogant, honorable and caring. Eliza, Reid’s sister, and Lavinia, his singing teacher, are intelligent, independent, and tough enough to handle and take care of the boys in the band. Jonathan, Lavinia’s young son is an absolute delight. Don’t let the snarky banter between Lavinia and Reid fool you. The chemistry between them is white hot, and they are perfect for each other. This is a great start for a new series. I really enjoyed Reid’s story and happily recommend it. Regency Rockstars promises to be quite entertaining. What fun to watch the rakes of the ton become the bad boys in the band. Owen is next. Can’t wait.

Reid is book one in Sasha Cottman’s Regency Rockstars series. When I first got the book, I thought the title was rather ludicrous. “Regency Rockstars” brought a picture of Kiss in cravats and top hats to mind. After reading it, I understand the pun. Four men form a musical group to woo women of the Ton into their beds. But when they find their competition winning more of the fairer sex, the lead singer Lord Reid Follett realizes he needs to improve his vocal performance. So Reid seeks out a voice teacher. But his world is turned upside down when the teacher ends up being a beautiful woman. I enjoyed this book. There are quite a few sex scenes sprinkled throughout. I think Cottman does a good job of developing Reid’s character. I also liked the way she weaves actual history into her story - mentioning the eruption of the volcano Mount Tambora and its effects on the economy in England in 1815-1816. I am looking forward to the next book in this series: Owen.

Reid Rocks! When I read the premise for this first in a series my thoughts could only wonder how this would work. I am happy to say it was perfect! Perfectly humorous, enchanting, exasperating at times ( yes I wanted to just knock Reid off his pedastal, but he got better) and a new storyline that had me in it's grip! Sasha's imagination took hold and has given us four handsome gentlemen (ok they are rakes with a capital R) but I think each will need their own redemptive love to realize they are much more than just their basic urges! When these four heroes, all heroes from their battles at Waterloo decide to form a band, I could not wait to see what would happen. Plus being told mainly from Reid's point of view put a new spin that was really unique. Can Reid find his "voice" with the help of widow Lavinia Jones, temptress that he thinks she is or will he get distracted and she become just another conquest? Escape into this delightul Regency romp that pulls out all the stops needed to make this an enjoyable story and as I turned the last page, longing for Owen's tale! Well done! Lori D
