*Well written & well edited
* Free on Smashwords
* Cute romance with a misunderstood rakish hero & a different from other girls heroine with a tarnished reputation.
* I liked how the couple overcame all the odds which led to a happy, if typical, ending.

Magnificent! It's been a while since I read something that actually had a surprising plot line. This truly had me in constant suspense. The writing is very well done and the historical accuracy is impressive. Even the "good" characters demonstrate a shocking level of class-snobbery, which is perfect! They should. It is the the mid 18th century, after all. I do not exaggerate when I say that this is on par with Dangerous Liaisons, though there is no sex (only alluded to). Wonderful book!

Review by: Larisa LaBrant on April 02, 2013 :
Just finished reading this...at 2am. Once you start reading be prepared to wander your house, nose-to-nook (or book), until the story wraps up in well laced flounce.

Pitch perfect, convoluted enough for the outcomes to be a surprise, with true to period attitudes in the glorious settings of Bath & Paris.

Review by: Carol on June 28, 2011 :
This sequel to Noble Satyr is even better. I was surprised to find that what I thought to be an unlikely plot element (the childhood marriage) actually was based on an actual event. Good characters, well-written.

Review by: Barbara Bartholomew on March 29, 2011 :
A well-written and most entertaining historical romance that I enjoyed very much. The characters come alive and there is plenty of action to keep the plot moving. I will be interested in reading other books by this fine author.

Review by: Andrea Grant on Dec. 11, 2010 :
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!

If you are a historical romance fan, you've got to read Lucinda Brant's books. This sequel to Noble Satyr is a great read. I can't wait to read Salt Bride.
