This is my favorite Lucinda Brant historical romance to date. It made me laugh, cry, get angry and then smile at the happy ever after ending, so I guess that is the mark of a good writer. If you love historical romance that is just a bit different then read this. You won't be disappointed.
Historical Romance at its best! Reminded me of a classic swashbuckler movie with a nasty villain you want to boo at every time he appears, an arrogant hero who doesn't suffer fools, and a happy-go-lucky heroine who brightens everyone's day. I've read it twice already and will read again (after I read the sequel!) Great entertainment!
This stand-alone sequel to Noble Satyr kept me up half the night I wanted so badly to find out what happened next. It takes place in Bath and then Paris and like Lucinda Brant's novel Salt Bride, it is that little bit different from the usual fare dished up as historical romances that it rises above the rest. Can't put my finger on it, perhaps the writing style, the setting, well drawn characters?
There is lots of emotional roller coasting and because I enjoyed Noble Satyr so much I felt I had a vested interest in this story about Roxton and Antonia's son Julian. You can read this as a stand alone novel, so if you read this first, then do read Noble Satyr as it is well worth it and you won't be disappointed.
A very satisfying and pleasurable read!
