Highly recommended for fans of smart historical fiction with a nice, non-explicit romance thrown in.

I was given a copy of Noble Satyr under Member Giveaways on Librarything. I've read quite a few novels set in the era in which Noble Satyr took place and I felt completely immersed by Brant's descriptions. Some historical fiction can feel so anachronistic but this author's novel did not at all. Ms. Brant is a fine writer and I found her scene setting, characterization and dialogue delightful. I also enjoyed the plot and did not find it predictable or formulaic, though I predicted the type of ending (for now?? I shall find out in the sequel) for Antonia and Roxton, the two main characters of the book. Roxton is the dashing, promiscuous duke-about-town in mid 18th century Paris, France. He is extremely wealthy and responsible for a great number of other nobility under his "care." Antonia is a beautiful and outspoken girl left in limbo by a question of guardianship and the calculating and nefarious plans of one Comte Salvan to wed her to his deranged and opiate addicted son and subsequently bed her himself. Antonia seeks the protection of the Duke, a distant relation, from these designs. Machinations on all sides ensue resulting in Antonia recovering from an accident under the Duke's roof in Paris and their subsequent falling in love, much to the Duke's consternation. Will the Duke finally settle and can he extract Antonia from the socio-legal entanglement in which she finds her fate?

    Tedious sounds apt

    Too many characters - events mapped out in conversation form as if it were screenplay ready.
    Tedious; because the conversation were translations of French.
    I have read some of this author's work. I had thought she was good. I am thoroughly disappointed.

    Couldnt get ino it.

    This book is very tedious and a quagmire to get through. Very painful. The way the story is written it just seems to drag on without much happening and there are a myraid of names that are mentioned that distract from the plot and storyline. Not a seemless story at all.
