Noble Satyr (Roxton, book 1) by Lucinda Brant
Even staying up to three in the morning as i just couldnt put lucina book down. Renard, Duke of Roxton, head of an ancient noble family, is wealthy beyond measure. Yet he’s held up as a paragon of sophistication and powerful influence. The best part was the whole strategy Roxton had thought up for how to prevent Salvan from getting his hands on Antonia and how to punish him for his cruel and demented scheming. noblee
I guess I had better stick to Heyer. Estee thinks Antonia is another one of his lovers and insists she be left at his maison – a townhouse for his women? There are a lot of characters to sort through, creating a story fabric of varied textures. Accidentally Compromising the Duke. One might wonder why I’m giving this book five stars, considering some of my comments on Roxton. He is simply outstanding in Noble Satyrwith every single character being easily identifiable thanks to his incredible range of characterisations, from the whiny, weaselly tones he gives to the cowardly Comte de Salvan, to the bluff, friendly almost-bellow of Lord Vallentine.
She spoke her mind plainly and without apology. Taming the Duke’s Heart. Took me only two days.
Antonia may be young but she knows her own heart and she knows that she wants Renard. This book is a perfect example of why, in my early teens, I fell in love with historical romances written by British and Australian authors. Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

He comes across as a non-caring type of person, but he does have his own set of strict values and there is a different side to his persona which we are eventually privy to, especially in his dealings with Antonia.
And although this one was weak, I will still have a look at the others in the series anyway. I listened to the audio while sewing on a baby blanket. The Duke of Roxton is a premier duellist, half French, half English and all ladies man.
I feel the Duke could have got more involved. The whole Roxton series is an absolute joy.
I was a bit skeptical at first whether another author could live up to my idols fantabulous dialogue and OTT characters but Ms. Many readers enjoy Lucinda Brant’s books as part of a wider series since her characters inhabit the same meticulously-researched 18th Century world with people and events cross-referenced throughout.
The noble satyr of the title is evidently, Roxton. Lucindas books are easy to read, which i sometimes find hard in other books written in the same era. Published December 1st by Sprigleaf first published September 18th I agree with you. I first ‘purchased’ one of her Georgian romances when it was free on kindle, and within a week I had finished it, purchased her three other historical romance novels, and finished those as well.
On the other hand, Ms. She succeeds in gaining access to llucinda apartments and surprises him as he is exiting his bath and is naked. But after years of doing his king’s bidding, bramt follows his conscience away from Edward, all the way to the wilds of Wales. Nkble Georgian era wa I first read this book a few years back, but decided to re-read the entire Roxton Saga after reading “Dair Devil: The setting of this book was one of the darkest in the history of France, which set up that country for a nole, bloody revolution.
This is sayyr of a series that from what I read has hupe time gaps between the books, so I have read, that listening to the whole series in a matter of days might not be a good idea. Who is that beautiful man on the cover? The story unfolds slowly and is well-paced. Lucinda is a brilliant writer and i rank her up with Richelle Mead and Charlaine Harris. Totally French, she was a sqtyr, petite 5’2″ beauty – often described as “the most beautiful woman” among her acquaintances.
I don’t want to do a comparison because it isn’t fair as regarding the character and plot these are very, very different books. On the road home, they are held up by highwaymen and she and his carriage driver are shot. Certainly this book will deserve another listen, particularly to enjoy the thoroughly satisfying satire of the lifestyle of that period. Renard believes for despite his morals, he does have his own code of honour that the eighteen year-old, innocent bea Noble Satyr the first in the Roxton Family Saga, is a simply superb, classy, character-driven story which ably sets the stage for the subsequent books, Midnight Marriage, Autumn Duchess and Dair Devil.
