Each of the stories in this series is unique and entertaining. Kendal’s story is no exception. He and Mercy are perfect for each other. She will ground him and keep him humble (well just a little humble). He will keep her in comfortable boots. I enjoyed their story. I like that Kendal learned that he could find support in both his families – the Grants and the Noble Lords. I recommend Kendal and the other Noble Lords - our Regency Rockstars.
From the beginning of this series, I thought Kendal as the Queen Drama of the team. Still, it was fun to see him going all mad when someone uttered the name of Mozart, like with the introduction chapter, quite hilarious.
After, as a second son, he enjoys life at its best, as nothing is really expected from him, except to supply for his older brother’s failure, in case of ...
I loved him, he is like a spoiled brat at time, but he tries to better himself, he miscalculates his actions but it is with the best intentions. He enjoys an easy life, so he can’t understand what it is to struggle to put bread on the table. But he also learned life’s hardship when he enlisted with his friends to fight against Napoleon’s army.
And while he knows Mercy will be unsuitable as a daughter-in-law for a Duke, he is ready to go against his own father, he knows he has found his match and she is the one for him whomever daughter she is.
His only shortcoming was to never let Mercy know what he intended for them, he confess his love, that he will protect her but nothing more.
Which let her wonder, what future they may have.
Mercy is no simpering miss, she works for her living and every coin counts. She also knows how to defend herself against lords thinking because she is in trade, she is for sale. But Kendal, with his love for music and his seductive smiles stirs something different in her, even when she knows their is no future for them.
It is their own misconceptions of the other that come between them, they might love one another but never they really took time to discuss their couple. So when their circumstances change, it widens the rift their differences in status already showed.
This last book in this series was very entertaining, it was fun and romantic as Kendal was more than the Diva from the previous book and Mercy his perfect counterpart.
I was surprised to learn that outside a king, a peer was able to abdicate too.
My only deception is the cover, it does not match the hero’s description and the blurb is too exhaustive, spoiling a bit too much of the story.
It is 4.5 stars read, Mrs Sasha Cottman with this last book showed the extend of her talent in shifting a modern twist in a regency set tale. And it was so much fun, I can recommend this series as it is full of drama, witty banters and twists.
I was granted an advance copy by the author, here is my true and unbiased opinion.
Kendal aside, the entire series has been reminiscent of A Knight’s Tale with modern mannerisms and language intermixed with those of the setting. This will appeal to some and totally put off others, as I know there are Period purists out there.
My biggest problem with the way these stories have unfolded is the amount of time spent repeating the practices and concerts that are common to all the books. It reduces the amount of space for the relationships to develop in a truly satisfying way for the reader. Although this did appear to happen less in this book than the others.
It would have been so much better if Kendal had perhaps gone and watched Mercy perform at the bar where she worked (even if in hiding.) If they had met at a coffee house or such in between their worlds. If they had met at an opera house during the day to work on their compositions. Any of these ideas would have let us enjoy the budding love affair rather than just being told it happened during the piano tuning time in the mornings. And besides, it would have enhanced Kendal’s character if he was making some effort towards their relationship - after all, she walked 2 miles every day to seem him -and it would have made Mercy seem less of a kept woman if they met somewhere where she wasn’t given coins at the end.
Finally, the strange epilogue focused on Marco, though I don’t see another book mentioned for this series. That was a “what the heck moment.”
"Am I the only one who understands the heart of the music? Will I ever find a soul mate who feels the same as I do?" His thoughts, as he and the Noble Lords were about to begin their concert. But as fate would have it, after Mercy tuned his piano, she began to play to see how it sounded and he could not believe how she mastered the piano! He tried to push her from his thoughts "But what if she could be more? What is this girl holds the secret to your future? Would you want her?"
A delightful story filled with emotions, a little intrigue and a handsome lord who just might end up with the perfect woman! Could he manage it?
Have thoroughly enjoyed this series and Sasha Cottman was truly brilliant in her imagination in the creation of the Regency Rockstars! Just need a soundtrack to go along with it!! Cannot wait for more from this author!
