    Perfection

    Satyr's Son is the fifth book in the Roxton Family Saga by Lucinda Brant. It can easily be read as a stand-alone story, but it can only enhance your enjoyment of it if you have read the others. Henri-Antoine is an aristocrat who in his own words is 'vulgarly wealthy'. He is privileged and powerful, but also suffers from an affliction that he believes will stop him from ever finding love. Lisa Crisp is an orphan reluctantly taken in by her aunt and uncle with the former treating Lisa more like a servant than a family member. She also lives with her two female cousins who lord it over her. Are you thinking Cinderella yet? I hope you are because from the minute Lisa and Henri-Antoine meet, despite trials and tribulations they are on course for a happy ever after to rival dear Cinderella's. With each book I have read in this series I have wondered how the author could possibly meet the same standard with the next book she writes. Happily every time a new book is brought out, it is just as fabulous as the one before, in fact, I think they just keep getting better and better. Henri-Antoine and Lisa's story is beautiful. Such an emotional story where my heart broke at times for the bumps they hit on the way to their happy ever after. Henri-Antoine can come across as a rude, nasty person, but when you realise the depth of his heart and the reasons behind why he can be nasty you can't help but love him. Lisa is light to his shade and despite their different social standing, nothing can keep them apart! Along with the beautiful love story told, another thing I love about this author's books is the attention to detail. Everything from the clothes the people wear, the places they visit, to the languages they speak, it's obvious that a lot of research has been done. I love that I can learn things as well as enjoy a fabulous romance! I wholeheartedly recommend this book and all the others in the series, they are all a delight to read. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers' copy of this book.

    Full Circle for the Roxtons

    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.

    Loved it

    Engrossing build up, evoking Cinderella comparisons, with very human characters. Looking forward to the next in the series.
