Publisher's Summary

London, 1786. Lord Henri-Antoine has returned from the Grand Tour to a life of privilege and excess. A vast inheritance allows him every indulgence, free from responsibility. Yet, Henri-Antoine maintains a well-ordered existence, going to great lengths to conceal an affliction few understand and many fear.

Miss Lisa Crisp is a penniless orphan who relies on the charity of relatives to keep her from the poorhouse. Intelligent and unflappable, Lisa will not allow poverty to define her. She leads a useful life working among the sick poor.

Under startling circumstances, Henri-Antoine and Lisa meet. There is instant attraction. When they find themselves attending the same wedding in the country, Henri-Antoine offers Lisa a scandalous proposition, one she should refuse but yearns to accept. Following her heart could ruin them both.

A standalone romantic adventure set against the backdrop of Treat, ancestral home of the dukes of Roxton. Satyr's Son will delight fans of the series with cameos by many beloved characters, while new listeners will discover the myriad pleasures and glittering aristocratic world of the Roxton family through the fresh eyes of newcomer Lisa Crisp. Satyr's Son is a Cinderella story with a heartwarming happily ever after.

Lucinda Brant + Alex Wyndham = Truly Marvelous

Feeling a bit sad to have come to the end of this marvelous series. As with all of her books, Brant’s characters steal our hearts. Although we know the HEA is inevitable, the path is a steep climb for the lovers.
Alex Wyndham always gives a star performance and Satyr’s Son is no exception. Thanks for everything.

Wonderful ending to a splendid series

I have enjoyed the Roxton series tremendously. I was left wanting more at the end of this book. Henri-Antone and Lisa's story warrant a second book. The characters were complex, flawed and interesting to get to know. There were many times I had tears in my eyes while listening to this book. I will listen many times in the future
The performance was as always with Alex Wyndham, spectacular. His voice is sublime.
I have enjoyed all of Lucinda Brant's novels as well as audio renditions of her books. I am looking forward to volume 2 of the letters.
This book is more than worth a credit!

Intensely Satisfying with an Unusual Hero

Loved this return to the Roxtan family and added interest due to the health and temperament of the hero. I really enjoyed that Lisa stood up to Henri Antoine and understood what lay under the facade. As always the writing is passionate and wonderful and Alex brings to life all the characters in his own unique way. You can read this book out of sequence but I would suggest reading them in order for a truly amazing read.

Wonderful story, so woth listening too.

Love strikes yet another of the Roxton family member and this time it's Harry or better known as Henri-Antoine! It was a chance meeting--and one to Henri-Antoine's benefit--that suffering fro his 'falling sickness' that it was Lisa who was there to comfort him. Days later, he seeks her out to give her his thanks but he finds that this young woman is not one to fall into his beck and call and meet him in his carriage. Harry had to go to her! It was much later, that they both find themselves attending the wedding of their friends Jack and Teddy at the Roxton's family home Treat. This is where the story truly begins and the magic starts. For Harry is not use to a woman who is outspoken does not feel threatened by his prestigious family.
Lucinda Brant once again weaves a story that delights you and keeps you listening to the bitter end. Whether you want to read or listen to his novel, you will not be the disappointment.The narrator Alex Wyndham does a fabulous job creating each and every character in this novel.

Alex Wyndham's Voice & Lucinda Brant story-Awesome

Alex Wyndham’s voice is like liquid chocolate oozing down your throat – smooth, lush, decadently appealing and sensual. His portrayal of the different characters is flawlessly done and it makes you feel as if you are eavesdropping on the lives and conversations of everyone in the book. He flows flawlessly from character to character, accent to accent and gender to gender. You feel the emotions of each character.

This book was so good that I didn’t want it to end – but all of Lucinda Brandt’s books are that way for me. I kept wanting to pause the playback of the book because I wanted to prolong the enjoyment and at the same time I wanted to speed up the playback because I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. So, this is quite a wrap-up for the Roxton series and I will miss these old friends.

Lord Henri-Antoine (Henry) Hesham is the second son of the fifth Duke of Roxton and brother to the sixth. He is rich beyond belief and has been coddled and spoiled all of his life. Not only does he have the looks and temperament of his father, he has the same reputation for debauchery as well. He goes from bed to bed – even going so far as to ‘share’ the mistress of one of his friends. He’s also very, very private because he has an illness that is much misunderstood and maligned during that time. Beneath all of that debauchery hides the heart of a romantic who is sweet, generous, caring and loving. It is so much fun to watch Lisa as she peels the layers back to reveal the real man who lies beneath the façade.

Lisa Crisp was orphaned at age nine and became dependent on relatives who didn’t want her (the Warners). She wasn’t exactly abused, she was just ignored – she was like the furniture, just there. She was given the opportunity to attend a boarding school for young ladies where she befriends ‘Teddy’, a member of the Cavendish/Roxton family. They were best friends until Lisa was sent down in disgrace. She lost touch with Teddy until, out of the blue, she receives an invitation to attend Teddy’s wedding and it is made plain to Lisa’s relatives that it is unacceptable for Lisa to refuse the invitation.

Lisa is calm, intelligent, trustworthy and beloved by the patients, the ‘poor sick’, at Dr. Warner’s clinic. She even volunteers as an amanuensis for those ‘poor sick’ enabling them to send letters home. Her work at the clinic enabled her to recognize that Henry was having a seizure when she first saw him. She secured and treated him while protecting his privacy – all without having any idea who he was. She actually goes through a fair portion of the book without knowing who he is. Because of his dress, speech, and mannerisms, she knows he is of the aristocracy, but doesn’t have a name to go with it.

Henry’s best friend is getting married – to Teddy – so he and Lisa find themselves at the same two-week wedding get-together. Lisa and Henry find themselves more and more attracted to each other. It is fun to watch Henry open up and blossom and Lisa come to realize that she is a worthy individual. Then, throw in a couple of shrewish ‘friends’ from school and another ‘friend’ bent on revenge and you find a lot of wrenches in the works. Can Lisa and Henry overcome the obstacles thrown in their way? Will Henry’s family accept a union between them? You’ll just have to read this lovely book to find out.

I requested and received this e-book at no cost to me and volunteered to read it; my review is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher."

Wdly Excited, Totally Addicted

This review will serve as a blanket review for ALL the Roxton series audiobooks PLUS the Salt Hendon Collection. I presently downloading book 4 of the Roxtons, Proud Mary, having compled book 0 noble satyr thru book 3 autumn duchess and the salt hendon collection. This all in a matter of a week. I am not a fan of male narrators, but I finalllllly decided to come back and check out the Salts, even t hough it is read by a male narrator, Alex Wyndham. To start this review I must say now I am a WICKEDLY HUGE FAN of both Lucinda Brants series. And Alex Wyndham has made me a believer in male narrators and i am in love with his voice. I would be sorely disappointed if he was not reading these absolutely brilliantly written and charming novels. The stories hit your heart in every book and feed the addiction for true love and that pure but come undone romance that every soul desires. The loss of my beloved sweet dog just 2 weeks ago too early in her life has left me aching and lackluster. It is corny to say, but Lucinda Brants two series have given me a chance while listening to them, to refocus and feel uplifted. I highly recommend these two series and Praise God For the sensual and talented voice of Alex Wyndham! This is a winning duo!

This is Dark Chocolate and Red Wine in Book Form

Would you listen to Satyr's Son: A Georgian Historical Romance again? Why?

Very rarely do I listen to audiobooks a second time, but this one I will. Alex Wyndham is a brilliant narrator. His voice is smooth yet nuanced. Also this is the best of the entire Roxton series (and that is saying something). The compassion that the hero/heroine show towards each other elevates this above the typical romance novel.

What did you like best about this story?

The details that Ms. Brant puts in to the romance...the gifts that are given, the way the relationship develops, the romantic dialogue, the way the hero has a struggle to overcome....This is a beautifully detailed and crafted book.

What about Alex Wyndham’s performance did you like?

Everything. He is my favorite narrator. His voice sounds like dark chocolate and red wine taste.
Also, the degree to which he sustains accents accurately across six books is truly impressive.

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

Towards the end, when true motives are finally understood.

Any additional comments?

This series deserves a bigger audience. The characters are well-developed, likable, loving. Brant's world building is impressive. You feel like you are a part of these people's lives.

CLEAN HISTORICAL ROMANCE!!

Satyr's Son IS A "CLEAN ROMANCE NOVEL" for those readers who do not like to read sex and lovemaking scene's this is the book for you!!

The story is set in the Georgian Era and Lucinda Brant is a master storyteller. I felt like I was there in every scene and in every conversation with the many lovely and delightful characters of this story.

I love Lisa the heroine, she has had a tough life but refuses to give into to despair. Her relatives are horrible to her. But one faithful day she helps one of the most powerful and riches peers in the land Henri Antoine. Son of a Duke and brother of the current Duke. Henri Antoine/Harry's mother is a 2 times Duchess, she had a Duchy in her own right. The Roxton's are the wealthiest and powerful family outside of the King and Royal Family in the land.

There is little romance in the story between Henri and Lisa and they do become sexually involved until near the end of the story. It is mentioned After the Fact that they have made love. But the story is still just delightful to read. It does drag a bit at times and I wish that the H/H had more time together in the story. Other than that this is a exceptional story very well written. Great Characters overall. I couldn't put it down!!

Best audiobook yet in the Roxton family saga!

I have listened to the Roxton family saga multiple times and every new audiobook is better than the last - Satyr’s son is no exception. The beautifully crafted love story, so delightfully written that you can visualise every character and scenario, is narrated by the supremely talented Alex Wyndham. Mr Wyndham can narrate dialogue like no one else, and the characters are easy to distinguish and to picture. The story is engaging and at times heartbreaking, but ultimately uplifting and exactly what the audience wants (and needs!) Henri-Antoine is a brooding young man from one of the premier families in England with an illness that would have been the cause of gossip and scandal, and Lisa Crisp is a practical and beautiful but poor and unconnected young woman. Their paths cross unexpectedly, and fate brings them back together, thanks to an old school friend of Lisa’s. Visualising Lisa trying to find her place in a world so far from her own is a joy, and the listener is with her every step of the way. The book introduces us to wonderful new characters, but brings back all our beloved friends from the saga. Lucinda Brant is a very talented author, I love her books and her characters - and the partnership with Alex Wyndham is quite the dream team. If I could give Satyr’s son more than 5 stars I most definitely would! A must listen for fans of historical romance.

Another triumph !

Where does Satyr's Son: A Georgian Historical Romance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Anything written by either Lucinda Brant or Stella Riley and read by the amazingly talented Alex Wyndham is always something to look forward to. Satyr's Son, the last (boo!) in the Roxton series, is wonderful. My favourite will always be Noble Satyr, as I just adored the Duke and Antonia's story, but each subsequent book only adds to the series. I enjoyed Henri-Antoine's story very much with the delightful Lisa Crisp.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Satyr's Son: A Georgian Historical Romance?

I loved the scene in the mausoleum, which sounds ghoulish, but if you read the series, you would know why it isn't. M'Le Duc is forever threaded through the series, and it was fitting that he should be included in the final chapter. Beautifully crafted by Ms Brant, as always.

Which character – as performed by Alex Wyndham – was your favourite?

Henri-Antoine. His mellifluous voice is just gorgeous. Alex W is the best at his craft.

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

I loved the book. I've adored all the books and being a part of the Roxton's lives. A marvellous series, my all time favourite. I have listened to them all on many occasions, and will continue to do so. They make a dull old day seem so much brighter.

Any additional comments?

If you haven't read any of the Roxton books, you are in for such a treat - lucky you ! Read the books sequentially to gain the best experience, then read the 2 books with the letters that belong to the series. A magical, wonderful, amazing read or if you have the luxury of listening to the audio books, then settle in to hear the voice of the ultimate narrator, Alex Wyndham. Perfect.

Another classic!

Just loved this, another wonderful book by the amazing Lucinda Brant. Her attention to detail is fabulous and together with the brilliant Alex Wyndham makes a formidable duo.
So lovely to revisit the Roxton family and catching up with their lives and loved hearing of Henri-Antoine's story.
I do so hope this isn't the end of the series, there are so many other characters that deserve their own story to be told and I don't think I could ever get enough of Antonia and her family.

Lucinda Brant's books never fail to enthrall and intrigue. The storyline and characterisation always de!Iver a superbly satisfying read. Combined also with the wonderful timbre of Alex Wynfdham's very sexy voice and his brlliant ability to become each character with such insight and passion;
together his and Lucinda's talents are a match made in readers heaven.I

A delightful story with awesome narration


A new insight into the life of the ever growing Roxton ducal family with three generations gathering at Treat to celebrate the wedding of Lady Mary’s daughter, Teddy’s to her cousin Jack Cavendish. You will meet the well-known and beloved protagonists from the previous Roxton books and find out what has happened to them during the nine years that passed since the fourth book, Proud Mary’s events.

However, this is the fifth Duke of Roxton’s second son, Lord Henri-Antoine’s story, his quest for happiness. Lucinda Brant created a complex character that you will love for his tenderness and generosity, for his determination of using his wealth to advance the science of medicine, you will want to console in his moments of vulnerability, however odiously he behaves, but other times you will hate for his rude, arrogant and selfish behaviour. The other protagonist, Lisa Crisp, though with a very different social status and financial situation than the previous main female characters, subscribes to the same line of self-conscious, determined ladies, ready to sacrifice everything for her two loves: Henri-Antoine and helping to ease the misery of the poor.
This new book of the Roxton family saga is an interesting twist in the family members’ love stories. The main characters of the previous books married for love but the partner was usually someone from a noble family, or possessed a considerable wealth, or acquired a title. In this case the two protagonists belong to two completely different worlds, their social status and their wealth putting them to the two extremities of the social ladder. Can love triumph and will such a marriage be accepted by the members of the Roxton family? I do not want to spoil the listeners’ joy in finding out the result. For me, it was hard to put down the audiobook, so I finished it in less than 48 hours.

Lucinda Brant is a master in recreating the Georgian era in her books by detailed but never boring descriptions of the environment, buildings, gardens, dresses, customs and habits. I love the way she inserts here and there and adjective, a descriptive phrase built in the flow of the happenings.
Alex Wyndham has been an excellent choice of voice for the series. He portrays the characters with different voices suiting their age, origins and character. His voice is rich and smooth, as “hot chocolate slides down your throat”, just as Lord Henri-Antoine’s voice is described in the book.

This is a highly enjoyable performance from the Brant - Wyndham team, a must listen for all fans of Georgian historical romance.

Ultimate Perfection

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

I would definitely recommend this audiobook because not only is it a wonderful story, but the narration is superb.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Satyr's Son: A Georgian Historical Romance?

I can't go into detail about any of the memorable moments of the story because they would be huge spoilers. Suffice to say that there are many moments in this story when I have been emotionally moved and have realised that this has to be one of Lucinda Brants best novels.

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

Yes, I have listened to other Alex Wyndham performances, mostly other Lucinda Brant novels. In each one he brings the story and it's characters to life and I cannot fault him. I have listened to his narration of one other author's novels and even though the quality of his narration never falters, there is just something about Lucinda Brant's characters and Alec's voice that meld perfectly. He becomes every one of Lucinda's characters, it's a perfect fit.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would love to have listened to this book in one sitting. Sadly it was a little long for that to be possible. I managed it in 3 sittings though. I had already read the book, but despite that fact, listening to Alec's narration made the book like new again.

Any additional comments?

Lucinda writes romantic novels unlike any other and when Alex narrates them he becomes each and every character he portrays. He brings them to life, he makes them our friends, family and even enemies. The emotion he can put forth is almost palpable, you just want to put your arms out and hold the character that is upset at the time, or dance a jig if the character is happy etc, you get the idea. I even forget that it is just one man narrating all the characters! I can't listen to any other narrator without comparing them to Alex, and no matter how good they may be, they can never reach Alex's gold standard! Henri Antoine the hero of this story is said to have a voice as smooth as chocolate, a description that is often given to Alex Wyndham's narrative voice, and a more apt description you could not have.

A fabulous story brilliantly performed

What a perfect time of year so sink into the sumptious storytelling of Lucinda Brant, and when her book is narrated by Alex Wyndham there really is no reason to hit the pause icon. Countless good books are ruined by a poor or mediocre narrator, but with Satyr’s Son author and performer really are a dream team.

AW brings to life the fascinating characters that live in the pages of SS. He speaks beautifully and gives Henri-Antoine a voice fit for a hero. AW also does really convincing women - none of those high-pitched efforts too many male narrators resort to, but a lightening tone which makes the heroine Lisa and the other female characters believable. He doesn’t do too badly with minor characters either - Lisa meets a charming and funny couple on her coach journey to adventure and the accent AW produces is fabulous! I love a good audio book and have a number that AW has performed. There really is no one to match him.

SS is the story of Henri-Antoine, second son of the Duke of Roxton, and Lisa, who, since the death of her parents has been living with her uncle, a doctor, and helping in his surgery. There is a connection of sorts between the two - Lisa’s aunt was lady in waiting to H-A’s mother, so from a social perspective they are very far apart. They meet in awkward circumstances: Lisa and Becky are on a mission to return a ‘stolen’ item. H-A stops Lisa and promptly collapses in front of her (well, what good heroine doesn’t get the hero to his knees!?!). But Lisa works at a dispensary so she is unruffled by the handsome young man unconscious at her feet. Later H-A seeks Lisa out to thank her. The first meeting doesn’t go plan and H-A leaves more than a little unsettled by this unusual female. Unable to resist Mr Cool Reticence contrives a further meeting, and in a delightful scene our usually urbane hero fidgets with a parcel revealing his unaccustomed nervousness. This is a wonderful story of two people who, separated by class and circumstance, find love. Naturally, their path is not smooth, and as we follow their tale their that have shaped their characters are revealed.

SS can be read as a stand alone, but it is part of the Roxton series. It’s wonderful, and you might just fall in love with LB’s storytelling and want to know all about the Roxtons and their extended family! It’s a 5 start series - Happy Listening :-)

Everything you want from a Georgian Romance!

This is my first time listening to a audible book, I really enjoyed it, having read the book myself, I was interested in listening to the book to see if I got anything different from it. I love the story, I found it gripping, amusing, romantic, detailed and just a fabulous story. I think I might have to listen to another book and I can guarantee it will be another Lucinda Brant one as she is a fantastic story teller and Alex Windham has a wonderful voice to listen to!

Wish it had net finished

Another wonderful book by Lucinda Brant in this series. I highly recommend that you read the entire series, but having David this, it is entirely a stand alone book.
Lord Henri Antoine has a dark secret - for the times - that he tries and on the most part does, keep to himself and a very select few.
He happens upon a young lady of no real means that tends to challenge him and understand his problems.
There is a wonderfully sad twist at the end that you really wouldn’t expect.
I loved this book and found it particularly hard not to finish listening till the very end. If I didn’t get other things done ‘Oh well’ they will get done eventually.
I highly recommend this book and the entire series.
Pleases write another historical romance series.
Oh and as for the reader. Just love Alex Wyndham and will be searching out his other books.
