Midnight Marriage carries on the Roxton series tradition with still another wonderful tale. In this engaging story you will once again be reminded why Lucinda Brant's books are such a treasure. 5-STAR Top Pick. I loved it: SWurman for Night Owl Reviews
The love story is tender, and filled with the kind of blunders young people make when setting out on the rocky road of true love. Nice twists and turns, dramatic revelations, and some enjoyable chaos make this a book that keeps the reader turning the pages. Highly recommended! 5 STARS: Fiona Ingram for Readers' Favorite

Meet the Author

New to my novels?
I write Georgian historical romance and crimance—crime with lashings of romance. All my books are set in the 18th Century, spanning 1740 to early 1780s England, with occasional crossings to the France of Louis XV.

Are they for you?
f you love BBC Classic Drama, Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer, 18th Century history, or romances with plenty of wit and adventure then give my books a try. You'll find a world of determined heroines and heroes, an eccentric character or two, and a weave of subplots to keep things interesting. They don't conform to genre formulas and have been described as “a throwback to the Golden Age of romance, but with a modern voice” and “heart wrenching drama with a happily ever after”. Historical detail is important to me but above all I want you to be entertained.

    Fantastic read!

    Another winner from Lucinda Brant! Deb and Julian's 660 page story of fate was wonderful. As the storyline unfolded, it was almost impossible to put the book down. This author does a great job with her Georgian Historical Romances.

    Plot over sex, refreshing!

    This is the second book I've read by this author. Historical accuracy seems right on. Character development strong and plot entertaining. These are not run of the mill romances. Kind of an old fashioned style where the sex is not the only thing driving the story. Plots are also believable to the time period and customs of the time. Refreshing to read.

    Free book...

    Being as how this is a free book... I will try not to be to harsh... but to say in simple words, this is not a book to read again later. The story line jumped from time to time and at points I wanted to quit reading. There was some sexual conversation.. as in the way of rumors but most of the actual love scenes were not in alot of detail.

    Midnight Marriage

    A wonderful read by this author especially if you are a true romantic...love the fact it took place during the 18th century and came from a real life experience. Great read and highly recommend if you love the romance of titles and duels and honor.

    Reviewed by Fiona Ingram for Readers' Favorite

    "Midnight Marriage" continues the saga of the Roxton family, which began with "Noble Satyr" (recently reviewed). Antonia and Roxton’s son, Julian, is wayward and headstrong, to the point where his father, fearing he will either make a disastrous marriage or litter the country with illegitimate by-blows, arranges a match between the youthful Julian and Deborah Cavendish. Deborah has no recollection of her midnight marriage at the age of twelve to a weeping, bellicose teenager. Julian is sent to the Continent to improve his ways, while Deborah continues her life. She proves to have an equally headstrong nature, to the despair of her older brother, Gerald, who has hopes of seeing her settle down in a respectable union with Julian in the future. When Deborah finds an injured duelist in the forest near her home, she has no idea who the handsome stranger might be, let alone that she is his wife. When Julian discovers her identity, he makes haste to propose and whisk her off into married life. But Julian’s chequered past and reputation as a libertine catches up with him, in the form of a lawsuit brought by an irate French father, accusing Julian of seducing his daughter. Deborah also finds out that she is married to the degenerate Marquis of Alston, and if that is so, then what will happen to the love for Julian Hesham whom she adores? Can she reconcile her feelings for the man she loves with her contempt for the man she married? 

    Another gem from Lucinda Brant’s pen takes readers back into the loves and lives of the Roxtons and to the Georgian era. The plot is intriguing as hints of dark secrets and strange motives gradually unfold. People with both personal and political motives in engineering this match (or sabotaging it) surround Deborah. Whom can she trust? The energy in this novel starts on page one with a mysterious midnight marriage that sets the tone and pace. The action continues and never lets up. Brant isn’t afraid to subject her heroine to a tumultuous roller-coaster of events, and feisty Deborah is up to it! The love story between Julian and Deborah is tender, and filled with the kind of blunders young people make when setting out on the rocky road of true love. Nice twists and turns, dramatic revelations, and some enjoyable chaos make this a book that keeps the reader turning the pages. They will not be disappointed. Highly recommended!

    I really enjoyed this book, but historical fictions are some of my favorite reads. This one keeps your attention and you're not overwhelmed with sex throughout the pages...highly recommend it!

    Historical Romance at it's best

    What a great story. This is the story of a marriage. This marriage had a very rocky midnight start. Strong characters. Wonderful family. Great and beautiful and colorful background and supporting characters. The mystery that runs through the story has an unexpected but very believable ending. This was my first by this author. I'm going to buy the next book in the series.

    Historical

    Another great read. The hero/heroine both learn that there are more layers and different sides to us all. But we are our own selves at our core and we never lose that.

    I have read all 3 books in this series, and this was my favorite

    I have read all 3 books in this series, and this was my favorite. I loved the story of Deb and Julian, it broke my heart with all the twist the author puts our character's through. Even the secondary character's were so rich in their developement. Great book. Salt Bride was my next favorite by this author. The 3rd in the series, has been my least favorite. Still a good series.
