Bad Boy Rockstar Romance meets Historical Romance

As a member of the Noble Lords, a group of English lords who play music to woo the wicked women of the ton, Owen knows his skillful fingers with the violin and viola are appreciated both in and out of the bedroom.
A year after his return from the battlefield of Waterloo his parents have unexpectedly announced his engagement to Lady Amelia Perry, a young woman he has never met. Lady Amelia comes with a substantial dowry which will help rescue the Morrison family estate, but Owen is too busy creating mischief to care.

Facing the loss of the one woman he has ever loved; Owen finally gains a painful lesson in jealousy and is forced to face the repercussions of his life as a rake of the worse kind.
Can a rake truly be reformed and will it be enough for Amy to give Owen a second chance?
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.
Owen is a standalone book in the Regency Rockstars series.
In the second book in the Regency Rockstars series we get to see the Noble Lords band from a little different point of view. Owen is a gifted musician and a consummate rake. Facing an arranged marriage to a young woman he has never met, he decides to continue to enjoy the willing women of the ton before he weds, and maybe even after. Lady Amelia Perry, the woman to whom Owen is betrothed is not happy about the arrangement either. She sets off to London (properly chaperoned by her brother) to see what kind of man he is, and if necessary, prove to her father that her betrothed is not suitable for her. She has a plan. She will bring Owen around, or send him on his way. Which will it be? Will they find love or will she give him the boot?
This story, like the first one, is engaging, has a good dose of drama, and is laugh-out-loud funny. The characters are interesting and likeable. The men are talented and arrogant, and rakish, as well as honorable and caring. Amy, like Eliza and Lavinia, is intelligent, independent, strong enough to set Owen straight. The scene in Hyde Park is perfect for bringing these two back together. I especially liked Amy’s explanation of future uses for her knife. I enjoyed this addition to a series with a wonderful twist on Regency and Rockstar romances.
