First of all let me tell you how much I love Cynthia Wright’s novels, but when she has Tim Campbell narrating I am absolutely in heaven.
Now to this delicious novel. Nicholai Beauvisage has returned home a man who has had his heart torn out by what has taken place in France. His first night back finds him comforting and I mean, comforting Lisette Hahn who owns and operates a coffeehouse in Philadelphia in 1793. She has the beauty and charm that can charm any of her admirers but because of a broken heart she lacks interest in men. But how did Nicholai break that icy barrier that Lisette has formed and why did she allow Nicholai to breach that barrier but will she allow him to keep it opened. But as we know sometimes blossoming love may have a thorn or two that tries to destroy a relationship that could turn into something beautiful. Inter Marcus Reems who if you remember was a villain in Cynthia’s novel, Touch The Sun, and please read this great book also because many of our characters from this wonderful book is in this one also. Will he succeed to destroy lisette and Nicholai’s future that could mean love and happiness? Please find out by reading, Spring Fires right along with the fantastic voice of Tim Campbell who makes one all melt and feel tingly. You will become a big fan of both Cynthia Wright and Tim Campbell I promise you!!

I love Lucinda Brant's Roxton Family Series and she has once again written a wonderful book, "Proud Mary" that has the reader not wanting to put it down. From the very first book of this awesome series, "Noble Satyr," to this latest book, Alex Wyndham brings such life to Lucinda Brant's books that you feel that you are right there experiencing the story first hand. Alex has a way that draws you into each character's personality and the situation that the character is under going. His voice and expressions are superb. Alex is number one on my short list of narrators.

Once again Cynthia Wright has proved that her Renaissance Romantic Books are the very best. She has even mad them more memorable with the talented Tim Campbell's narration. Her book "You And No Other" is one of my favorite because of the handsome Thomas St. Briac who is determined never to marry but than he's never met the impulsive and bewitching Aimee de Fleurance who pretends to be her sister and finds herself in the court of the King of France where St. Briac unwillingly aids her in keeping the King fooled as to her identity. This book has plenty of twists and turns and finds St Briac falling hopelessly in love with Aimee who constantly needs saving from the romantic advances of the King who thinks she is her sister.
With the fantastic Tim Campbell's narrative and his wonderful voice that captures each and ever character's personalities. This is an Audiobook that you must have to listen to and read long with Cynthia Wright's great book. So set back and let You And No Other take you on an amazing journey with Thomas and Aimee. You won't be sorry!

Now she has a wonderful way to double the fantastic adventures in the book, "THE SECRET OFLOVE" and that is by having the very talented Tim Campbell narration of it.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you haven't read any of Lucinda Brant's Roxton Family Series, you are missing the most wonderful and romantic series!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Midnight Marriage: A Georgian Historical Romance?

The very beginning when the elderly Roxton takes his son to meet his very young girl to become engaged.

What does Alex Wyndham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Alex brings to life each character. I have listened to The Roxton Family Series three times and Alex Wyndham is the reason!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was moved whe Julian sees Deborah after 3 months and doesn't realize she is carrying his child. When he abruptly leaves. His action was this immediatly after, "as if all the emotional fight suddenly drained from him. He slumped against the wall and slowly slid down the paneling to the bottom step. Here he covered his face with his hands and sobbed."

Any additional comments?

Run don't walk to get BOTH ebook and Audible of this fantastic series, The Roxton Family Series ‼️‼️‼️

I have read, "Autumn Duchess" a number of times and loved the story so very much. Just imagine to my delight to hear Alex Wyndham's marvelous voice in the character of all of the people I have come to know, admire and love! His voice takes on the great sadness that Antonia, Dowager Duchess of Roxton, feels after the loss of her great love, the Fifth Duke of Roxton, now going on three years. Her friends and even her oldest son begin to wonder about her sanity. Than Jonathan Strang, a bronzed, devilishly handsome merchant who is a decade younger than her pursues Antonia, and is bound and determined to make her his bride to the surprise of Antonia and to her oldest son who is now the Sixth Duke of Roxron who is bound and determined to run the "wolf" away from his mother. Will Antonia give into her emotions and desires that suddenly have come alive by Jonathan or will she remain alone and determined to remain loyal to her dead husband. You must read and than listen to Autumn Duchess, by Lucinda Brant. You will fall in love with the "The Roxton Family Saga" which this is the third book of the series.

No ordinary family. Six extraordinary love stories. From the opulence and intrigue of the Court of Versailles to the gritty streets of London and the grandeur of the English country estate, be swept up in the romance, drama, and intrigue of the aristocratic Roxton family. There’s never a dull moment for the 18th Century’s first family, and always with a Happily Ever After.

I have read the "Noble Satyr," by Lucinda Brant along with the other "Roxton Family Books" countless of times but when I listened to the audiobook narrated by Alex Wyndham, it was as if I was a silent character in the audiobook. Yes, I literally felt as if I was right there during each and every scene! Alex's narration was perfect or spot on for each and every character and his enthusiasm was fantastic when the scene called for it.
I have now decided after hearing the audiobook, "Noble Satyr," written by Lucinda Brant, and narrated by Alex Wyndham that I must have all the audiobooks for the, "Roxton Family Saga!" I'm a true convert for listening to Lucinda's audiobooks narrated by Alex Wyndham!

These are letters from the private correspondence of the Roxton family, spanning 1743-1777, with extracts from the diaries of Antonia, fifth duchess of Roxton and seventh duchess of Kinross. They include Roxton's last letter to Antonia. This volume complements the first three books of the award-winning Roxton Family Saga: Noble Satyr, Midnight Marriage, and Autumn Duchess, with a foreword by a late-Victorian descendant, Alice-Victoria, 10th duchess of Roxton.

Where does Eternally Yours: Roxton Letters Volume One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is actually the very first audiobook that I have ever listened to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Eternally Yours: Roxton Letters Volume One?

I so enjoyed listening to Alex Wyndham's expressive and appealing voice. He made each character come to life and I could actually picture them in my mind. He made me cry when La Duke of Roxton wrote his final letter to his beloved Antiona. Alex's expressive voice brought this beautiful audiobook come to life even though I had previously read the ebook.

Have you listened to any of Alex Wyndham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me botch laugh and cry.

Any additional comments?

I have now downloaded 3 more of Lucinda Brant's audiobooks after hearing, Eternally Yours, Roxton Letters.
