Peregrine is a novella-length work of contemporary romantic fiction penned by author Julie Spotted Eagle Horse Martineau. Forming the first book in the Rock Stars series, this interesting novella takes the typical rock star romance genre into a new dimension with both its narrative style and the inclusion of Native American heritage and beliefs in its characters. Our central heroine is the titular Peregrine Falcone, who meets rock star Rick ‘Seb’ Sebastian and begins a torrid journey where all different kinds of love, loss, and heartbreak are explored. Then, we find ourselves following the tale from Seb’s perspective as well to discover his side of the story.
With a little adult language included, this is essentially an enjoyable read for romance fans of all maturities, focused on commonality, misunderstandings and the pressures and demands of trying to stay together despite what modern life throws at you. I loved the inclusion of Peregrine’s heritage and her deep connections to her culture, which really informed the character well and helped the reader to relate to her really quickly. She is an appealing woman whilst also being uniquely developed, and although Seb comes across initially as a typical hot alpha male, his perspective really opens up to show a lot more emotional depth than a typical rock star romance usually delivers. The dialogue was delightfully fresh, modern and realistic, and the unique narrative style of author Julie Spotted Eagle Horse Martineau gives Peregrine a selling point that I’ve never seen before. Well worth a read for romance fans.
