Description

Noble Satyr: A Georgian Historical Romance

1740s France and England - the age of hedonism and enlightenment. Renard, Duke of Roxton, is wealthy beyond measure. Arrogant and self assured, his heart remains his own. Optimistic and headstrong, Antonia Moran is determined to flee the Court of Versailles with the Duke's unwitting assistance. Roxton is an unlikely savior - arrogant, promiscuous, and sinister. Antonia's unquestioning belief in him may just be his salvation, and her undoing.

A classic "Beauty and the Beast" tale, this award-winning historical romance is a homage to Georgette Heyer's These Old Shades.

My favorite hero of the series

I have to say in all the years of reading historical romance books, the hero in this book is one of my most favorite characters. His total control over his reactions and his maturity is One unmatched in any other stories. He's cool and collective and handsome and titled and loving and .... What can I say. I am lost in this character.
I love the fact that Audible held this book back and released it after the other three books because otherwise I would have had a hard time reading the other ones. I do however feel profound sadness to know that the other stories happen when this Duke is a very old man. And to imagine him dead by book 3 tears my heart apart ( and no I am not giving away anything since death happens when he is very old. Not a surprise there). I absolutely love his character and so I admit he made the book for me. Do NOT hesitate to purchase this book. Extremely well written and very entertaining.

Noble Satyr Such A Fantastic Audiobook

I have read the "Noble Satyr," by Lucinda Brant along with the other "Roxton Family Books" countless of times but when I listened to the audiobook narrated by Alex Wyndham, it was as if I was a silent character in the audiobook. Yes, I literally felt as if I was right there during each and every scene! Alex's narration was perfect or spot on for each and every character and his enthusiasm was fantastic when the scene called for it.
I have now decided after hearing the audiobook, "Noble Satyr," written by Lucinda Brant, and narrated by Alex Wyndham that I must have all the audiobooks for the, "Roxton Family Saga!" I'm a true convert for listening to Lucinda's audiobooks narrated by Alex Wyndham!

The Noble Satyr

This was possibly the first book I've read by Lucinda Brant so it took me a chapter or two to get into it, however, once I did, I was hooked. I've been reading so many Scottish romances, that this one caught me off guard. I absolutely loved it once I adjusted to France rather than Scotland. If I remember correctly, I received a free copy from the author through contests or to give an honest review. lso, I bought the audio book because I love hearing the different narrators ply their skills. To me, it just adds life to the well written characters. I truly didn't want to put the book down. I listened to the audio while sewing on a baby blanket. It took me back to my high school French classes. I just loved it! 😀

Wonderful book and narration!

This story has so many wonderful twists and turns. A charming heroine and a dashingly reluctant hero with a scandalous reputation. If you love a good romance this is the book for you! The narrator also has a wonderful voice, he draws you right in!

Wow

Alex Wyndham's narration is amazing - I hope he narrates more historical romance. Brant's local of Paris during the 1740s is brought to life thru vivid descriptions and serves as a nice change of pace from Regency historical. It was great to visit the Roxton family at the beginning of Antonia and her M'sieur le Duc. I can't say enough about how engaging of a story and listening experienced this is and recommend all the titles in this series and the Alex Halsey mystery series.

WOW! this was a winning story & a great narration

Any additional comments?

I listen to lots of audio books, its been a long time since a story drew me in like this one did. This was in large part due to the narration which is top notch.

A wonderful first audiiobook

If you could sum up Noble Satyr in three words, what would they be?

wonderful, masterful, entertaining

Who was your favorite character and why?

Roxton is my favorite character in this. He has always thought to go on with his life unchanged. He is so surprised when he decides he can't be happy with anyone for any reason but Antonia. He finds thoughts of her ruling his plans for the rest of his days. So he becomes what we all know, a reformed rake is a happy husband.

What does Alex Wyndham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He makes all of the characters have their own voice and makes you look forward to hearing from each of them.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me impatient to hear "what happens next" It makes me want to shake the sister of Roxto,n she is so hysterical over every thing and jumps to the wrong conclusion all the time.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to get into the next story in the series.

Novel story and incredible narration!

Lucinda Brant's Noble Satyr is refreshing, funny, moving, shock-inducing, and full of romance. I, myself, have fallen in love with many of the characters- Roxton, of course, the little Minx, and my favorite...Valentine! Lucinda does an incredible job in making you want to know the main characters as well as the minor ones. This is the first of the Roxton series and I have since listened and read the other books in the series and I recommend them all. Lucinda Brant's books are now on my immediate buy list! And regarding narration- you cannot get ANY better than Alex Wyndham! I'll listen to him any day. He does a great job character development with his different voices. Wonderful performance!

Lucinda Brant + Alex Wyndham=a winning combination

This love story between Antonia and her Monseigneur is beautiful and thrilling. Alex Wyndham's narration is just the icing on the cake (and icing has always been my favorite part of the cake!).

All of Lucinda Brant's Georgian books are first-class and highly recommended.
