Description

Winner - Best Historical Novel, 2015 RONE Awards

Opposites attract. Appearances can deceive. A dashing and rugged façade hides the vulnerable man within. He will gamble with his life, but never his heart. Always the observer, never the observed, her fragility hides conviction. She will risk everything for love. One fateful night they collide. The attraction is immediate, the consequences profound....

London and Hampshire, 1777: The story of Alisdair "Dair" Fitzstuart, nobleman, ex-soldier, and rogue, and Aurora "Rory" Talbot, spinster, pineapple fancier, and granddaughter of England's Spymaster General, and how they fall in love.

Another Lucinda Brant winner

This was also a very well written book with some very funny scenes especially at the very beginning of the story. Sorry to have to wait for the release of the next book in the series especially since I found no information regarding it on Audible. The second book still remains my favorite and then the Midnight Marriage but this is not to take away from Dair Devil. I felt LB did a fabulous job developing the new characters and yet mixing the old ones in this story as well, making the book feel more personal to its readers. I truly enjoyed this book and recommend it highly to anyone looking for substance and not fluff.

The narration is the star

It was good to get back together with previous characters. The "break in" at the beginning was hilarious.

The narration of this series is wonderfully well done. Brings out so much of the story.

My only question is where is Mary's book?

Alex Wyndham brings these Roxton men to life.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would most definitely recommend "Dair Devil" to all of my friends to read, but I'd suggest they do so after either reading or listening to the previous 3 in this series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dair Devil?

The most memorable moments of Dair Devil are so many that I really can't easily narrow them down.... When the young men climbed in the window in loin cloths and chased a group of dancers around the room so their buddy could come in and save the ladies was quite funny. It sounds so much like a plan a group of young fellows would devise to help one of the group look to be the her to win a ladies heart. Didn't quite turn out as planned though, and caused some embarrassing moments for those involved.

Which character – as performed by Alex Wyndham – was your favorite?

My favorite characters, were Dair, who is one of the new characters, vaguely mentioned in "Autumn Duchess". Rory, the intellectual equal of many a man, and of course, Antonia, the Duchess of Roxton from book one.

Any additional comments?

Lucinda Brant always has interesting plots, creative, strong characters, and events often based in true history. I like that she weaves her stories around the characters of one book, but also in her own subtle way, introduces characters who will show up later, so she sets the stage well, and leaves the door open to adding more layers to her series.
In the audio versions for this series, Alex Wyndham is shown to be a master of narration bringing the different characters to life through his ability to create varied, yet believable, voices/accents for each character. You can really get a feel for the character since he seems to have the ability to allow their personalities to shine through as well.

Wonderfully Written, Superbly Narrated -- love it

Any additional comments?


When a novel is not just a story, but an experience, it is such a delight. We move with the characters, sharing their emotions, feelings and experiences, not told a story but living one.

The story begins with a scene truly hilarious, a scene with tongue in cheek frolicking of the nobility’s pranks. Alisdair is known for his outlandish behavior and his willingness to take on a bet. He involves his friends in this prank. One such friend, is Rory’s brother, Lord Gasby, a bundle of energy and a brother with deep love for his sister. This prank doesn’t exactly end the way Alistair thought it would. He holds a woman in his arms tightly wrapped in drapery. Simply ludicrious and had me laughing. There was no putting this listen down!

When the flame of interest is sparked for none other than the Spymaster General’s granddaughter (the gal he held while wrapped in drapery), he knows his chances of gaining her hand will fall on deaf ears. Under the façade he uses to hide his inner self, is a person with a heart he knew not beat.
Alistair has a champion, his cousin, Her Grace the Duchess, a woman of great feeling, high spirits and enduring love. Secrets long hidden and best forgotten must be unearthed to give well deserving youth a chance of happiness.

I enjoy the saga Ms. Brant unfolds. Characters we’ve come to love from earlier in the saga take secondary positions in this story. Frankly, this wonderful saga with a narrator of such talent will remain with me for many years.

I highly recommend this series by Lucinda Brant. A saga of depth, passion, and loves of such fervor, your heart swells.

Note: I found I enjoyed the speed of the complete saga at speed 0.75x. It allows the words and divine voice of Mr. Wyndham time to appreciate.

Fantastic Listen

If you are looking for a well written and research Georgian era historical with top notch narration, this is the title for you. I loved finding a series that isn't a Regency set one, and I love that the series re-visits couples from previous books, but also work well as stand-alones. My only complaint is I have to wait until next year for the next title in the series. I can't say enough good things about the narration and hope to see Alex Wyndham narrate more historical titles.

Loved it!!

Alex Wyndham does one pretty good job.
I like his voice and his interpretations of the characters.

Dair & Rory (Aurora)first meeting was hilarious. Love books with humor and this one has a couple of LOL and a few smile scenes.
Loved the story, loved how they get together, loved how we revisit characters from previous books, really loved how Antonia (Duchess & Dair's cousin) "attacks" Lord Grasby (the older)and put things to right.
Not really a cliffhanger...Dair & Rory story does have an ending but what of the couple of story lines left open. Why I gave it 4 stars.
Now I want to know how they'll catch , the Weasel William Watkins,secretary to the spymaster Lord Grasby. And will spymaster Grasby keep his word and stay on the straight with Dair, Rory and the Duchess?

Another great book in the series.

This book had some of the best laugh out loud moments that I’ve experienced in any of Lucinda Brant’s novels. Also a great love story, although it is hard for any of them to live up to to the characters and events of the first book in the series.

Marvelous!!

A wonderful addition to the Roxton Series. What I love about Lucinda's books, besides the characters, the historical accuracy, and her exceptional writing skill is that all the characters from the previous books in the series contribute to the overall continuation of the family saga in each succeeding book.

When you meet Dair in The Autumn Duchess you think he is just another womanizing rake and scoundrel. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I won't give away his secrets, you will have to read them for yourself.

Rory is a young lady born with a handicap that prevents her from participating in the Marriage Mart. What she lacks in grace she makes up for in courage, kindness and a heart of gold.

No one who knows could ever imagine that they would fall in love. Even the people close to them do not know all their secrets. Always remember the age-old adage;" Never judge a book by its cover" A story full of surprises that will make you smile. So prepare for surprises revealed by both Rory and Dair.

I can't forget how Alex Wyndham's performance adds to the story and it is amazing how he remembers all the other character voices from the previous books. He is awesome!!

I highly recommend this book and all of the other books in The Roxton Saga!!

Another great book in the Roxton Series!

In Dair Devil, Charles Fitztuart's handsome and vain brother shows his true colors and they are bright and beautiful. A war hero, a spy, and an extremely honorable man (in spite of all appearances). To tempt him, comes the lovely pineapple enthusiast, Ms. Aurora Talbot.
Rory is adorable! She is so very loyal and smart and beautiful. She has a disability and needs a walking stick to move around. I love how Mrs. Brant depicts her ordeals in such a believable manner and, above all, I love that she refuses to ever be the victim. She has an inner strength that is contagious.
There is some opposition to their HEA, wonderfully romantic scenes and the presence of the wonderful Antonia that saves the day!
Wonderful story made even better by the performance of Alex Wyndham.
