A wonderful tale of wealth and poverty and the great equalizer of illness. I enjoyed this story about a lovely young impoverished and orphaned lady who works to ease and comfort the sick poor and through a change in circumstance comes to find love with a nobleman. I was brought to tears a number of times which rarely happens, but there were a number of touching scenes throught this story. Any lover of romance or period stories will truely loves this one.

I have thoroughly enjoyed all the books in this series, but this one tops the list. Brandt takes on another journey through this family's history, updating us on the goings on, while taking us in a new direction highlighting medical care at the time. As usual,her characters are truly believable and her visualizations allow the reader to become enraptured in the story.

I’ve never read anything by this author, so was unfamiliar with anyone or anything about this series of books. But a reviewer said this was the best of the series and could be read as a stand alone so I took a chance and I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the hero, who was flawed just like I like ‘em, and the heroine, who was saucy and independent and a forward thinker, also to my liking. I enjoyed the plot and the other characters as well. All were returning characters from the other books, but I was able to learn enough about each to appreciate their stories as well. I’d recommend this book!

Enjoyed the plot which I found to be rather unique to romance and totally agree with the previous reviews! ????? LORRAINE

I fell in love with the characters and the story so this book gets 5 stars!! I did find the writing style too wordy at times so I skipped over some of the long winded sections. Will read more by this author.

In Satyr’s Son, the two most vibrant and visible children of the entire series, Teddy and Jack, find their happy-ever-after. (A match I predicted a few books ago, if anyone is counting). Teddy, daughter of Lady Mary Cavendish (Proud Mary), and Jack, brother of Deb, Duchess of Roxton (Midnight Marriage), each only had secondary or tertiary billing in past books, but nevertheless stole the scenes in their much-younger years. However, they are not the central HEA, even though most of this book plays out at their wedding. (As such, I put forth the notion that Teddy and Jack were, in fact, robbed of their own book. I am hopeful these two will appear in the Roxton Family Letters, Volume Two, and would urge Brant to fill in the outlines of their story in a future bonus novella or short.) Now, as to the actual hero and heroine of Satyr’s Son: Henri-Antoine (Harry), second son of Monseigneur, the former Duke of Roxton (Noble Satyr)—the great love of matriarch Antonia’s life—and brother to Julian, the current duke, is thumped in the head sideways by love of another commoner (following Sir Christopher Bryce from Proud Mary), Miss Lisa Crisp, bosom friend of Teddy, niece to Antonia’s former lady’s maid, and beneficiary of the Duchess of Kinross’s quiet patronage. The two main characters meet in the throes of the hero’s deepest vulnerability, and she manages to help him mask it from the rest of the world, which sets the stage for as many displays of ducal emotional armor as we ever saw with his father. Harry has been able to manage ill health his entire life with the help and support of enormous wealth, a loving, if intrusive, family, and the innate dignity instilled by Monsiegneur. His noble upset is handled with a different sort of grace than Monseigneur (and Antonia) always displayed, but grace nonetheless. His core fragility, however, is the perfect complement to his heroine’s core competencies. Also complementary are their plans for each other—at first. As she is not of noble blood, he sees her as a mistress, and she agrees; how else will she spend time with a nobleman she is falling in love with, when he will surely have to marry in his own class? But Teddy, Jack, Antonia, and the rest of the family will not have it. As his father did before him, he comes to what is left of his senses after Cupid’s assault, but requiring a similar sort of brick to the head as Monseigneur did when Antonia captivated him. Harry is not his father—he is more serious (by necessity), less frivolous, more intellectual, more goal-driven. But he is similar enough. The haughtiness, the charm, the gloriously handsome physique, the seemingly blithe pursuit of pleasure, force a look backward: if the son invokes the “ducal defense” to cover up his great vulnerability, what then, was the father’s weakness? And in what ways did his heroine help him overcome it? Perhaps Monseigneur himself will be revealed in the next volume of the Roxton Letters. As this has been billed as the last book in the Roxton Family Saga (barring the forthcoming epistolary Volume Two of the Roxton Letters), we can now bring some things full circle. Overall, from Noble Satyr to Satyr’s Son, she expertly weaves two genres into a comfortable whole: historical romance, of course, of the most glorious and sweeping sort; but also the traditional historical family saga, leading three generations through trials and tribulations equal to their great wealth and privilege.

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite Satyr’s Son - A Georgian Historical Romance: Roxton Family Saga, Book 5 by Lucinda Brant is a heartwarming romance about two people from opposite sides of English society, yet when they meet by chance, there is no denying the chemistry between them. The novel follows the charming and endearing journey of Lord Henri-Antoine and Miss Lisa Crisp as they learn to love and appreciate one another. In a story set in 1786, London, Henri-Antoine loves his life of privilege and freedom from responsibilities, however, he too has hidden secrets that he does not want others to know. When he attends a wedding, he has no idea that he will finally meet his match, a woman who never had a life like the one he leads, yet she is far superior to him in many ways that he never knew or appreciated before. Lisa led a poor life, but kept herself from a life in the poorhouse with the help of her relatives. She is smart and she is not afraid to take chances and carve her own path in life. When she meets with the charming Henri-Antoine, she is scandalized by his offer, but she is not able to refuse him. This proposition is a recipe for disaster, but should she take the plunge? This novel oozes romance and a magnetism that is very hard to resist. I loved the connection between Henri-Antoine and Lisa, but I liked Lisa more. She had an undeniable spark; she is intelligent and rarely emotional. Her practical edge spoke to me and I felt connected to her. Together, she and Henri-Antoine created a pretty picture and had a relationship with a shaky start, but they built it with time. This is yet another thing that I thoroughly enjoyed; the main characters had time and page space to grow fonder of each other. This is a definite must-read!

The novel is well-written and its unabashed emotion, coupled with the unexpected plot turns, will have readers' eyes filled with tears of joy. Lucinda Brant injects a lot of humanity into her characters and readers can easily connect to them. The novel offers very subtle lessons in the art of love and hope, opening readers' hearts to the mystery of attraction and how true love can transform one’s destiny. Satyr’s Son: A Georgian Historical Romance features a great plot, fast-paced and intricately woven with surprises that no one would see coming. The setting has great historical references, well-imagined and written with mastery. The glowing moments of tenderness were the best part of this novel for me and I loved the crisp and powerful writing. This one is a masterpiece, a delightful read in its genre.

Reviewed by Maureen Dangarembizi for Readers' Favorite Satyr’s Son by Lucinda Brant is an unforgettable historical romance set in London, 1786. Lord Henri-Antoine is the son of a duchess and the brother of the current Duke of Roxton. Theirs is the most powerful family in the land. But for all their wealth and power, they have no easy solution for Lord Henri-Antoine’s devastating affliction. Enter our heroine the compassionate Lisa Crisp. An orphan herself, this young woman spends her days working among the sick poor of London. In Lisa Crisp Lord Henri-Antoine finds love and understanding, but will it be enough to win their forbidden happily ever after? Though Satyr’s Son is the fifth installment in the Roxton series and the first one I’ve read, it was such a lovely read and easy to follow. This is a must-read for historical romance fans who enjoy it when a rake is brought to his knees. Lucinda Brant spins a heady tale full of laughs, uniquely touching moments, and an amazing plot that will keep you on edge right to the end of the book. I loved the Roxton family so much that I know I’ll be going back to read the previous books that I missed. I loved the forbidden element in this book that made a HEA an impossibility. This book totally engaged me at an emotional level. The hero in this book was alpha, vulnerable and sexy. And for those looking for an intellectual read where you actually learn something integral to human nature, this book is for you.
