Noble Satyr the first in the Roxton Family Saga, is a simply superb, classy, character-driven pucinda which ably sets the stage for the subsequent books, Midnight Marriage, Autumn Duchess and Dair Devil.
The love licinda between the unashamedly dissolute Renard Hesham, 5th Duke of Roxton, and the very young, but determined Antonia Moran, would seem, on the face of it, to be unlikely. Renard believes for despite his morals, he does have his own code of honour lkcinda 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.
Renard believes for despite his morals, he does have his own code of honour that the eighteen year-old, innocent beauty is not for the likes of him, and yet somehow, as the story progresses, the listener is left in no doubt that they are, in fact perfect for each other, and the slowly developing sensual and tasteful love story between them is breathtaking. The predatory Comte de Salvan has his own devious and lecherous noblle for wanting the marriage, wanting to bed Antonia as well as to secure her large fortune.
He is enchanted by her innocence and intelligence, finding her to be a breath of fresh air in the grossly licentious and corrupt court of Louis XV.

On the other hand, Ms. He does not conform as do the other overdressed peacocks, preferring his own understated style. Sensuality is very high on the agenda, yet Ms. Brant manages to convey this without going into endless prose; one scene in particular, which I will not reveal, but I guarantee will leave the listener tingling, is one where we are left feeling as though we have witnessed something rather special though in fact the door is very firmly shut in our faces.
Once again, the delectable Alex Wyndham gives a fantastic performance. His portrayal of Roxton epitomises the handsome, charismatic though slightly bored aristocrat, his tone perfectly conveying dissolution and ennui, while also hinting at the kindness too and the love he eventually cannot hide.
Antonia is exquisitely portrayed. Mr Wyndham highlights her rather unconventional take on life, playing her exactly as written — intelligent and precocious but playful and quite obviously virginal although certainly not boring. So talented and expert is Alex Wyndham at his craft, that it is hard to believe he is single-handedly performing such a large group of fascinating characters. View all 13 comments.

I love that the author is not afraid to bend the genre rules that have become so stifling to authors and writes what inspires rather than conforming to formulas Yes, I am bitter about that but I digress.
What first attracted me to the book is You guessed it the Georgian era setting and the plot similarity to the Georgette “the Great” Heyers’ These Old Shadesone of may favorite GH titles. I was a bit skeptical at first whether another author could live up to my idols fantabulous dialogue and OTT characters but Ms.
Brant did not disappoint. I actually liked her herione, Antoinia better than the somewhat irritating Leonie. Although this is by no means graphically sexual, I liked the higher level of sensuality compared to the much tamer GH titles. I won’t go into plot as anyone can read the book blurbs. Suffice to say if the rest of the series is as good, I’ve found another favorite author.
I hope you’ll check her out. View all 3 comments. Feb 25, Jan rated it it was ok Shelves: Well this one wasn’t that great, as it turns out However in this case, it’s just not that good.
Noble Satyr (Roxton, book 1) by Lucinda Brant
Completely lacking the light touch and charm of Ms Heyer’s book. And although the plot of Noble Satyr does veer away from TOS to do its own thing, it’s still clearly heavily influenced by Heyer. I re Well this one wasn’t that great, as it turns out I read this one after reading Salt Bridewhich I enjoyed.
A far better book than this one. I thought I’d then go to the start of the Roxton series and read them in order. I love to read books set in Georgian England.

And although this one was weak, I will still have a look at the others in the series anyway. The second one, Midnight Marriage is currently free on amazon.
As Salt Bride was good, I’m hoping Noble Satyr was just an early, weaker book and that the series improves. So, what didn’t I like? Well, the plot was confused and confusing.
I found it difficult to keep the characters and their relationships straight in my head. Too much happening, and the reveals came too late for nolbe to make much sense to me. And I didn’t much like the characters anyway. The H, the Duke of Roxton, is a former playboy and man of the world parallel with Justin Alastair from These Old Shadesbut too much was made of his murky past, whereas Ms Heyer left more to the imagination. It’s actually hard to see why Roxton falls in love with her.
And in These Old Shades, the large age difference between H and h was always there, but it never felt wrong and their love felt so real. In this book, the age difference is mentioned much more frequently, to the point where it starts to feel a bit creepy. So, although I loved the settings, overall I felt let down by this book. I really wanted to love it, but I nobls. But, yes, I will read other Brants.
I loved that book. It is more violent, but it truly pays homage to These Old Shades. Even the language doesn’t go too far away from Heyer’s. There are differences, of course. This duke doesn’t save what seems to be a street urchin. He is manipulated I know the word usually has negative connotations, but it’s not the case here to save Antonia from a lecherous old cree ‘A classic romance in the tradition of Georgette Heyer, Braant Satyr pays homage to Heyer’s These Old Shades.
He is manipulated I know the word usually has negative connotations, but it’s not the case here to save Antonia from a lecherous old creep. I enjoyed her honesty and trust almost as the Duke did.
The villain s are properly horrible and the punishment is acceptable. Other characters are colourful enough to make lucjnda even better than I expected.
Overall, an enjoyable story.

Sex, lies, and politics go hand in hand, and courting royal patronage is the ultimate prize. Into this licentious arena comes Antonia Moran, an innocent young woman, whose lack of protection makes her a prime target for the dissolute Comte de Salvan.
