Keeping the beat with a pair of drumsticks helps Noah Holden focus. Without that focus, his ADHD makes life a little chaotic. And being the drummer in a famous rock band brings its own form of chaos.

Peppa Kerrigan has the voice of an angel and an encyclopedic knowledge of music. If only she didn’t have that pesky stage fright getting in the way…not to mention the distracting off-the-charts chemistry with the drummer of the band she’s auditioning for.

With Peppa in his arms, Noah finds a strange kind of serenity, an ability to control his stormy creative energy. But when his wild past catches up with him, he could lose it all, including the smoky-voiced angel he’s falling for—the one woman who keeps his mind and his heart staying on rhythm.

Each book in the The Heart of Fame series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

"With intriguing characters, amazing interplay between them, raunchy dialog, and hot as hell sex scenes, Steady Beat proves we are in for an awesome ride as this band tries to make magic a second time around." --Slick, Goodreads

"But don’t feel like you can’t read just this one, each of the books can be read as a standalone. But you would be missing the greatness that is the others. I hope you love this book and series as much as I have!! :) " --Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

After several years hiatus, the guys from Blackthorne have decided to make a go of it as a new band, and the only thing they need is a new singer. Sounds easy right? Not so much when you are attempting to replace the amazing Nick Blackthone. While the guys are discussing finding a new singer, Noah's ...more

It's really hard not to enjoy the books in Lexxie Couper's Heart of Fame series and I'll admit when she announced she was going to reunite Nick Blackthorn's band (sans Nick), I wasn't sure how I felt about it. I mean, come on Nick WAS the band in my opinion but damn if she hasn't changed my mind. In ...more

4.8 out of 5 Licks

I have one question for you, the reader. How can you go wrong with a devastating sexy rockstar drummer? The answer? You can’t. It’s really not possible, and Ms. Couper played on that sexy stereotype as if she was the one behind the ...more

At this point, I can safely say that Noah is my absolute favorite guy in this whole series. Which says a lot because I have mad love for Chris and Liev. Maybe it's the whole Rock Star Drummer thing. Maybe it's the fact that Noah faces personal challenges on a daily basis. Maybe it's his incredibly h ...more

Lexxie Couper you did it again! Smashing!! I love these guys you write they’re all so dashing and so ALPHA. They know what they want right away. This book did not disappoint at all. Noah Holden is a swoon worthy Rock God for certain.

A fun angst filled, well developed story. The attraction between Noah and Pepper was quick and filled with fire & heat. Our Heroine Pepper is a shy woman with a beautiful voice and poor self esteem; due to her mother’s constant put downs as she was growing up. Pepper was exposed to the music scene a ...more

I forgot how much I absolutely love drummers! This series just keeps getting better and better by each book. This one by far is my favourite.

Noah was the drummer for Nick Blackthorne's band. Drumming has only been the thing he could keep his focus on. Everything else was a muddled mess. Until he mee ...more

I haven't read the previous three novels but if they are even remotely as good as this one, I truly recommend you to read them as fast as possible. The band members seem incredibly awesome, each and every single one of them. Remarkably humble and easygoing for men used to have millions of people wor ...more

What a pleasure it is to return to Lexxie's books when you need a good read. Her writing is a joy. Quick, concise, to the point and white hot.

About the author

Lexxie Couper

Lexxie Couper started writing when she was six and hasn’t stopped since. She’s not a deviant, but she does have a deviant’s imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get erotic romances that can make you laugh, cry, shake with fear or tremble with desire. Sometimes all at once. When she’s not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie’s life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she’s insane, a indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever. Having no idea how old she really is, Lexxie decided to go with 27 and has been that age for quite some time now. It’s the best of both worlds – old enough to act mature, young enough to be silly. Lexxie lives by two simple rules – measure your success not by how much money you have, but by how often you laugh, and always try everything at least once. As a consequence, she’s laughed her way through many an eyebrow raising adventure.
