The Quest of Perkins Vale is book 3 in the series. It starts after the end of book 1 and runs alongside book 2 The Story of Lansing Lotte. I would still recommend reading books 1 and 2 before reading this one.
Perkins Vale is the drummer for the rockband The Nights. After that fateful night at the end of book 1 he is struggling with some issues.
He blames himself for what happened. Why? Because he saw her, the one!
Ever since he was 13 Perkins has been searching for the girl he knows is the one he is destined to be with forever. Hes 25 now and a virgin still because he's waiting for her, saving himself for her! Crazy right? I mean he's in a rockband surely he can't be a virgin? Um yes he can.
He promised her he would return for her, and he could never find her again. Until that night at the club, that night when he saw her. Hollister SanGrael, he knew in his heart she was the young girl he had promised to save.
Hollister is living at the womans shelter, she doesn't even know how she ended up at a rock concert for the womens shelter to be honest. But she ends up with Perkins. She has some horrific secrets of things that happened when she was young and is deeply traumatised by those events.
Can dear, sweet lovable giant Perkins convince her that not only is he the 13 year old lad she remembers that gave her hope in the form of his fathers ring? Can he win her heart and trust?
Read on and find out.
I absolutely adored this book. It's so strange, I loved book 1, didn't like book 2 as much and now loved book 3!
The storyline in this book is incredible and kept me in suspense the whole time. And the ending!! I swooned its so adorable and sweet!
You just want to totally fall in love with sweet Perkins Vale. Everyone needs a Perkins to love and adore them.
I wasn't too sure of Perkins, his character didn't jump out at me in the previous books (the 'good guy'), but as I read further into the book he 'grew' on me. And in the second half of the book? He blew me away with his quiet persistence and kind and gentle personality.
Hollister has been damaged by her past, and struggled to love herself and think herself a worthwhile person.
As always LB Dunbar writes beautifully. She builds the characters, and constructs a good story.
If you haven't read or aren't familiar with the legend of King Arthur, LB Dunbar gives a very brief explanation of the similarities of character and happenings at the end.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Where to start....
OMG!!!! I LOVE IT!!! I think I was won over by Perkins and now Arturo is second! I did not expect to be hooked on someone else! But a hot drummer? YES PLEASE! He is quiet, sexy and makes your knees go all wobbly for simply being in the same room.
He is not the SOB as the rest of the group and is not going through the women as fast as the rest of them. He wants THE ONE that got away 12 years go. And he is determined to find her. And when he finally finds her, he has a new mission. A mission that has one goal only: make her fall for him as hard as he has fallen for him.
I have liked Perkins from the beginning, but I didn't fell in love him until his story, when we can see how amazing he is as a musician and a person.
He is one of those book boyfriends that you want to scream: forget about her TAKE ME!!!
I loved the series and I hope it's not the end!!
Drool worthy 5 stars!!

This story is about the shy virgin drummer of The Nights - Perkins Vale – and his biggest conquest: the heart of the girl he was saving himself for, Hollister SanGrael.
Perkins could never forget the young and beautiful girl he once met in the woods and promised to save. Once chubby and awkward as a child, he has grown into a giant of a man with a much bigger heart. Perkins joined the rock band The Nights and discovered a new passion: playing the drums. Even though he lived a Rock Star life he never surrendered to its temptations like his band mates. He was saving himself for the girl of his dreams and never gave up looking for her.
Hollister wasn’t that lucky. She had a very hard life and went through her personal hell at a very young age. That experience made her want to help other women who suffered the same destiny as her. This is why she is working at a women’s shelter.
Their paths cross again twelve years later at a charity concert where Perkins saves Hollister and leaves with her on the back of his motorcycle. Perkins soon discovers that Hollister is not the young girl he remembers from the past anymore. She has changed…
I loved how patient and understanding Perkins was with Hollister. He is the sweetest male virgin ever! Who wouldn’t fall in love with a young man at age twenty-five who saved himself for the right girl and believed in true love? *sigh*
Hollister was a branded young woman with a terrible past. My heart broke for her and I felt a lot of sympathy for her! I admire her determination to help other women and people in need. Even though her innocence was taken from her, her heart remained pure.
This story is about two young people discovering love for the first time together. The quest of Perkins Vale is however not only about Perkins and Hollister. It’s also about the other band members and how they got to know each other which was skillfully told through flashbacks.
Even though Arturo makes a short appearance, we still don’t exactly know what happened and why he is not returning home. That still leaves us with some questions which will all hopefully be answered in the next two books.
The Quest of Perkins Vale was a very nice and beautifully written story. The pace of the book was a little slow at the beginning but got better and faster in the second half. I especially loved the end which left me in a happy place.
I unfortunately read this book first without reading the previous two before. That was definitely a mistake! I decided to read the Legend of Arturo King and was very happy to discover that it gave me so much more insight into all characters and made it easier to connect to them. My advice for everyone is to at least read Arturo before Perkins. You won’t regret it! Congratulations LB Dunbar, I’m totally hooked on this addicting series and will definitely read all the other books as well.
The second time he saw her was by pure coincidence. He was lost and walking along the Lake and came upon a tent. She was inside the tent and was scared. The man that had kidnapped her would be coming back soon, she said, and she was afraid he would kill Perkins. At fourteen years old, Perkins only knew he had to help her escape and promised to come back. They exchanged gifts as a promise... but by the time he returned the next morning it was too late. She was gone and no longer there.
With Arturo missing, Perkins quest is now the focus of his life. Until Arturo decides to come back, Perkins cannot help but pursue Hollister and keep her safe. Her secrets are many and kept very deeply hidden. All Perkins wants is to protect her and call her his forever.
There are many twists and turns in this story. I truly believe you need to read the first two books to understand all that is going on with the characters. The book is a little slow in the beginning for those of us who already know what happened to Arturo, etc. but as Perkins story with Hollister begins to evolve, the story picks up pace and becomes very interesting. The last half of the book is especially good and gripping as Hollister's life is again in peril.
The Quest of Perkins Vale (Legendary Rockstars #3)
By LB Dunbar
1. a search or pursuit made in order to find or obtain something: a quest for uranium mines; a quest for knowledge.
2. Medieval Romance. an adventurous expedition undertaken by a knight or knights to secure or achieve something: the quest of the Holy Grail.
Who knew that a chance meeting could change your life forever.
Perkin Vale is the sexy, quiet drummer of The Nights. Said to be the “Hands- free lover”, Perkins makes women fall to their knees just by being in their presence. He doesn’t go through women like Lansing or Tristan. Perkins is a man on a mission, a quest, to find the one woman who slipped from his grasp twelve years ago. Because of this mission, Perkins hasn’t had many lovers. In fact, he hasn’t had any. How much longer can Perkins go on saving himself for this mysterious woman from his past.
Just when we think Perkins might be giving up, the night that should be one of the worst of his band’s life, actually becomes one of the best of his. The woman he has been searching for is found, but will she share Perk’s feelings, or will his quest be all for nothing?
I have been patiently waiting for Perk’s story since I saw LB’s original thoughts for her characters. The small glimpse’s that I got on him in both Arturo and Lansing’s book left me wanting more. Once again, Lady Dunbar did NOT disappoint. There is just something about Perkins that draws you to him and makes you want to do bad things, very bad things; but in a good way. There aren’t many men who would hold true to a promise made to a girl over a decade ago, let alone save themselves for said girl.
When I first met Perkins I knew there was something special about him. The way he spoke, his social awkwardness and his calming presence, made me love him instantly. I wanted to be in Hollister’s shoes and have the loving attentions of one Perkins Vale. But when we get a glimpse into Holli’s past, we understand why she is the way she is and her hesitance to be with Perkins. I love the way this book is laid out and how it follows not only Perk’s quest but Holli’s personal quest for reinvention.
For me, this book was so much more than the hot sex and alpha maleness of Perkins (who knew?). It was a story of a man who never gave up and stood by his word to protect and return to the one woman who stole his heart so many years ago. Although the road wasn’t a straight shot, Perkins and Hollister engage on this quest together and each come to their own conclusions.
Will Perkins get what he has searched for all these years?
Will Hollister be drawn be the demons of her past or will the “Night” in shining armor truly win her heart?
I don’t want to give it away. You need to find out for yourself and I promise you will not be disappointed.
Perkins Vale is the drummer for the famous rock band The Nights. He has been on a lifelong quest to find Hollister SanGreal,the girl that he has loved since he was young. This quest has kept him from becoming a man whore because he can't get her out of his mind to even sleep with all the groupies. Hollister has been abused by unscrupulous men for a long time. She never thought the boy from the woods would find her again. She now guards her heart against most people, especially men.
L.B Dunbar's books just keep getting better and better if that's even possible. This was another EPIC story from her. I have always loved the Legend of King Arthur and the Round Table, so I simply LOVE the spin L.B. puts on the story with rock stars. She stays close to the legends while adding in the modern day. I love the duel POVs because it just seems to add something awesome to the story. It had laughter, suspense, angst, chemistry, flashbacks of their history, and all encompassing love. The book was very well written and I couldn't put it down until the last page. When I'm reading L.B. Dunbar, I'm always transported into the story because of her fabulous writing style. She even keeps us on our toes with brief appearances of Arturo King. I'm on pins and needles for the next book! I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this book and series!
