Books / stories by Ms Lucinda Brant never disappoint. It is a long wait to finally be able to read another story of the Roxton family series. I just wish that Ms Lucinda Grant is able to write faster and create another book or story of either the Roxton family or a continuation of the Salt Redux series. I simply love the story line laid out by Ms Brant and the character development in each of her stories. Each and every one of her book is a page turner. This book - Satyr's Son - is simply a delicious read ... for those who had read the other books in the Roxton series , will be familiar with Henri-Antonie. It is good to finally have a book solely about him. He was painted as someone who resembles his sire greatly, from his looks to his temperament. He had fits attacks and this illness can make him sometimes self-absorbed and petulant. Like his sire, with his brooding good looks and great wealth, he had his pick of female conquests (and lovers/ mistress / flings). In this story, he finally gets to meet his soul mate - Lisa Crisp - a girl of on wealth or family connections. Lisa was pretty yet poor, living on the charities of her relatives. However, she is intelligent, has great compassion and goodness. As in all romance stories, these 2 main characters meet and feelings developed. But due to the difference in social class, many frowned upon their relationship. As usual, Henri-Antoine's brother - Julian, the 6th Duke of Roxton disapproved of this relationship. It seems that Ms Brant has written Julian as a regular snob ... he was more pleasant in his own story (Midnight Marriage) then in the other stories. I am also surprised that Ms Grant did not give Deborah (Julian's wife) a more significant role in this and other stories. She was placed in the background as someone who is loved by her husband and managed her own brood of children. I wish Deborah would have more active part in the other stories such as advising her husband (Julian) to be less of a snob.
Sex were not explicit or simply gross over in this book. This book is more focused on the character development, the depth of feelings, the interactions and characters of the other players in the stories. It is a great book for romance readers, especially a romance in the Georgian period. As said, I wish Ms Brant would write faster and publish more books of these 2 families - Roxton & the Salt Redux (Heldon family). I am savouring each page of the story and hoping in the heart that the story never ends ... or will not end too soon.
Great read, do buy the book.
