    Description

    London, 1786. Lord Henri-Antoine has returned from the Grand Tour to a life of privilege and excess. A vast inheritance allows him every indulgence, free from responsibility. Yet, Henri-Antoine maintains a well-ordered existence, going to great lengths to conceal an affliction few understand and many fear.

    Miss Lisa Crisp is a penniless orphan who relies on the charity of relatives to keep her from the poorhouse. Intelligent and unflappable, Lisa will not allow poverty to define her. She leads a useful life working among the sick poor.

    Under startling circumstances, Henri-Antoine and Lisa meet. There is instant attraction. When they find themselves attending the same wedding in the country, Henri-Antoine offers Lisa a scandalous proposition, one she should refuse but yearns to accept. Following her heart could ruin them both.

    A standalone romantic adventure set against the backdrop of Treat, ancestral home of the dukes of Roxton. Satyr's Son will delight fans of the series with cameos by many beloved characters, while new listeners will discover the myriad pleasures and glittering aristocratic world of the Roxton family through the fresh eyes of newcomer Lisa Crisp. Satyr's Son is a Cinderella story with a heartwarming happily ever after.

    Lucinda Brant sets a standard for quality

    The Roxton books are a series worth repeating and this was my second complete listen to Satyr’s Son. The standard of high quality writing, vivid characters, attention to detail, and excellent narration is consistent from volume to volume. The plots are always fresh, even when they fall within classic Romance tropes. The heroines are always interesting as individuals. The heroes are men of depth, not cliched stereotypes.
    Writers of Lucinda Brant’s caliber are rare. Fortunately, repeat listens to her previous books almost makes waiting for the next one bearable.

    Wonderful ending to a splendid series

    I have enjoyed the Roxton series tremendously. I was left wanting more at the end of this book. Henri-Antone and Lisa's story warrant a second book. The characters were complex, flawed and interesting to get to know. There were many times I had tears in my eyes while listening to this book. I will listen many times in the future
    The performance was as always with Alex Wyndham, spectacular. His voice is sublime.
    I have enjoyed all of Lucinda Brant's novels as well as audio renditions of her books. I am looking forward to volume 2 of the letters.
    This book is more than worth a credit!

    Intensely Satisfying with an Unusual Hero

    Loved this return to the Roxtan family and added interest due to the health and temperament of the hero. I really enjoyed that Lisa stood up to Henri Antoine and understood what lay under the facade. As always the writing is passionate and wonderful and Alex brings to life all the characters in his own unique way. You can read this book out of sequence but I would suggest reading them in order for a truly amazing read.

    Wonderful story, so woth listening too.

    Love strikes yet another of the Roxton family member and this time it's Harry or better known as Henri-Antoine! It was a chance meeting--and one to Henri-Antoine's benefit--that suffering fro his 'falling sickness' that it was Lisa who was there to comfort him. Days later, he seeks her out to give her his thanks but he finds that this young woman is not one to fall into his beck and call and meet him in his carriage. Harry had to go to her! It was much later, that they both find themselves attending the wedding of their friends Jack and Teddy at the Roxton's family home Treat. This is where the story truly begins and the magic starts. For Harry is not use to a woman who is outspoken does not feel threatened by his prestigious family.
    Lucinda Brant once again weaves a story that delights you and keeps you listening to the bitter end. Whether you want to read or listen to his novel, you will not be the disappointment.The narrator Alex Wyndham does a fabulous job creating each and every character in this novel.

    Alex Wyndham's Voice & Lucinda Brant story-Awesome

    Alex Wyndham’s voice is like liquid chocolate oozing down your throat – smooth, lush, decadently appealing and sensual. His portrayal of the different characters is flawlessly done and it makes you feel as if you are eavesdropping on the lives and conversations of everyone in the book. He flows flawlessly from character to character, accent to accent and gender to gender. You feel the emotions of each character.

    This book was so good that I didn’t want it to end – but all of Lucinda Brandt’s books are that way for me. I kept wanting to pause the playback of the book because I wanted to prolong the enjoyment and at the same time I wanted to speed up the playback because I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. So, this is quite a wrap-up for the Roxton series and I will miss these old friends.

    Lord Henri-Antoine (Henry) Hesham is the second son of the fifth Duke of Roxton and brother to the sixth. He is rich beyond belief and has been coddled and spoiled all of his life. Not only does he have the looks and temperament of his father, he has the same reputation for debauchery as well. He goes from bed to bed – even going so far as to ‘share’ the mistress of one of his friends. He’s also very, very private because he has an illness that is much misunderstood and maligned during that time. Beneath all of that debauchery hides the heart of a romantic who is sweet, generous, caring and loving. It is so much fun to watch Lisa as she peels the layers back to reveal the real man who lies beneath the façade.

    Lisa Crisp was orphaned at age nine and became dependent on relatives who didn’t want her (the Warners). She wasn’t exactly abused, she was just ignored – she was like the furniture, just there. She was given the opportunity to attend a boarding school for young ladies where she befriends ‘Teddy’, a member of the Cavendish/Roxton family. They were best friends until Lisa was sent down in disgrace. She lost touch with Teddy until, out of the blue, she receives an invitation to attend Teddy’s wedding and it is made plain to Lisa’s relatives that it is unacceptable for Lisa to refuse the invitation.

    Lisa is calm, intelligent, trustworthy and beloved by the patients, the ‘poor sick’, at Dr. Warner’s clinic. She even volunteers as an amanuensis for those ‘poor sick’ enabling them to send letters home. Her work at the clinic enabled her to recognize that Henry was having a seizure when she first saw him. She secured and treated him while protecting his privacy – all without having any idea who he was. She actually goes through a fair portion of the book without knowing who he is. Because of his dress, speech, and mannerisms, she knows he is of the aristocracy, but doesn’t have a name to go with it.

    Henry’s best friend is getting married – to Teddy – so he and Lisa find themselves at the same two-week wedding get-together. Lisa and Henry find themselves more and more attracted to each other. It is fun to watch Henry open up and blossom and Lisa come to realize that she is a worthy individual. Then, throw in a couple of shrewish ‘friends’ from school and another ‘friend’ bent on revenge and you find a lot of wrenches in the works. Can Lisa and Henry overcome the obstacles thrown in their way? Will Henry’s family accept a union between them? You’ll just have to read this lovely book to find out.

    I requested and received this e-book at no cost to me and volunteered to read it; my review is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher."

    Didn't want to finish

    I like Lucinda Brandt books, but this is the first one I had no desire to finish. The story is rich with our beloved family and a new love story. The premise is unique. I even rolled my eyes and stuck with it through the many times the size of H's member was brought up. But I had difficulty with the cumbersome writing. A copy editor needed to tighten the verbosity to keep the flow going. Each and every little thing was bogged down with pages of mental monologue, meanderings, and repetition. There actually isn't much to this story, but it was so long, it needed lots and lots of filler, which we get in over-the-top wordiness. The misunderstandings and behavior at the wedding took away from my interest as well. Alex does an excellent job narrating this series, though the whispering is difficult to hear.

    Plus side is the heroine's charity to the poor

    I liked it because they were both so romantic. just not believable how deep their love is given they just met three or four weeks ago. I guess thats already plenty of time given the time setting. I think it worked out well because they are both romantic. Makes me wonder how could it have worked if they were otherwise not.

    Superb! Superb characters, superb narration!!

    Enjoyed every minute of this great series.....this one, Satyr's Son, listened to twice....Great combination, Lucinda Brant, her stories and character's and Alex Wyndham's narration of them. I think I fell in love with all of them. Particularly liked Monsinior and Henri Antoine, how alike they are and yet not, how H.A. makes his decisions, his father always there alongside him,
    How he follows his heart. Actually all of L.B. male characters follow their hearts, passionately!! Enjoyed the discriptions of the times, the fashions and the history, In short, I want more!! Bravo!!

    Long winded and uninteresting

    This book was chock full of unnecessary details to the point of tedium. At one point the author spent half a chapter getting around to revealing the contents of a single letter. Seriously? By that point I realized I would find watching paint dry to be more interesting. Ugh. This book was definitely not worth the time investment of listening to the entire thing.

    Gagging

    I finished the book, however, I believe that was solely due to Alex Wyndham’s narrative, he could make reciting the alphabet over and over again pleasing. I am not interested in any more books by this author. Very distasteful, the male lead was extremely rude and jealous and the female lead was content being a mistress, not my style at all. I’ll be going back to Stella Riley novels.
