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 sets a standard for quality

The Roxton books are a series worth repeating and this was my second complete listen to Satyr’s Son. The standard of high quality writing, vivid characters, attention to detail, and excellent narration is consistent from volume to volume. The plots are always fresh, even when they fall within classic Romance tropes. The heroines are always interesting as individuals. The heroes are men of depth, not cliched stereotypes.
Writers of Lucinda Brant’s caliber are rare. Fortunately, repeat listens to her previous books almost makes waiting for the next one bearable.

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."

Incredible & Unforgettable

This may have been my favorite book of the Roxton series… And I do not say that lightly as I have thoroughly enjoyed every one of these in both Kindle and Audible versions.

Strangely, this book has been on my TBR list since before it was even released. Somehow after adding it to my “to be read” list, I lost track of it and then when I noticed it, I thought I had already read it. When I recently finished the latest Alec Halsey book by Lucinda Brant, I read the description on this one again and realized I had never read it.

What a joy it was to discover that and then to be able to both read and listen to this book at the same time. Teddy and Jack are delightful and I was happy to read about their love, their friendship and their wedding, the fitting outcome of their long attachment to one another. I also so appreciated Teddy and Lisa’s great friendship, as well as Jack and Harry.

But most of all, my heart melted throughout the entire revelation of the relationship between Henri Antoine and Lisa Crisp. Their meeting is indeed unique and rather difficult, but also beautiful in its own way. Henri (or Harry) is certainly not your typical love interest. Of course he is not your typical anything. But neither is Lisa.

Their interactions literally spark and their relationship seems destined from beginning to end. There’s is a beautiful, although troubled, love story. But the culmination of the story warmed my heart to such a degree that I nearly cried.

Truly I do not want their story to end. There is a point near the end where it is mentioned how people will someday think of them. Their relationship rang so true to me that I find myself being one of “those people” wondering what the future held for them. I truly hope that this isn’t really the end of the Roxton family series, and that perhaps we will get updates on Henri and Lisa, Jack and Teddy, as well as perhaps the younger generation of this family.

Thank you, Lucinda, for this beautiful story and wonderful family - and for making them come to life for me and many others.

The narration was, of course, brilliant, being done by the amazing Alex Wyndham.

Predictable story; disappointing narration

I actually own this book on Kindle but decided to go with Audible version instead. Overall, the plot was extremely boring and predictable (more so if you’ve read other books in the series). I far prefer other books by the same author.

Separately, I not like narration either. My early experience with Alex Wyndham had left me awed. I found him fabulous. Since then, however, I have have become increasingly disappointed.. Mostly because he does not adapt his style or intonation as appropriate, when narrating books in different genres or set in different time periods. I hate how characters predictably stress words that should not be stressed. Furthermore, his general tone always suggests a sense of complete wonderment, whether he is describing the landscape or an intense situation.

I truly wish he’d stop doing this as although he’s extremely talented I’m now so sensitised to his manner of narration, Im beginning to find listening to him almost unbearable.

Didn't want to finish

I like Lucinda Brandt books, but this is the first one I had no desire to finish. The story is rich with our beloved family and a new love story. The premise is unique. I even rolled my eyes and stuck with it through the many times the size of H's member was brought up. But I had difficulty with the cumbersome writing. A copy editor needed to tighten the verbosity to keep the flow going. Each and every little thing was bogged down with pages of mental monologue, meanderings, and repetition. There actually isn't much to this story, but it was so long, it needed lots and lots of filler, which we get in over-the-top wordiness. The misunderstandings and behavior at the wedding took away from my interest as well. Alex does an excellent job narrating this series, though the whispering is difficult to hear.

Plus side is the heroine's charity to the poor

I liked it because they were both so romantic. just not believable how deep their love is given they just met three or four weeks ago. I guess thats already plenty of time given the time setting. I think it worked out well because they are both romantic. Makes me wonder how could it have worked if they were otherwise not.

Superb! Superb characters, superb narration!!

Enjoyed every minute of this great series.....this one, Satyr's Son, listened to twice....Great combination, Lucinda Brant, her stories and character's and Alex Wyndham's narration of them. I think I fell in love with all of them. Particularly liked Monsinior and Henri Antoine, how alike they are and yet not, how H.A. makes his decisions, his father always there alongside him,
How he follows his heart. Actually all of L.B. male characters follow their hearts, passionately!! Enjoyed the discriptions of the times, the fashions and the history, In short, I want more!! Bravo!!

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 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.

Somewhat interesting

You can tell when a novel doesn’t quite follow the “rules” of a classic plot line, where certain things happen at certain stages so that the reader is swept along on an exciting journey. This book loses momentum somewhere around the middle, and the characters aren’t strong enough to carry it.

This was the first “sweet” romance I’ve read, and [spoiler ahead] it doesn’t make sense to me that sex scenes are omitted when them having sex is important for the story. Not that I need pages of detail, but it feels juvenile and... what’s the word — prissy?... to have them suddenly wake up in bed together like in an old movie.

Some things didn’t pay off, like the mean cousins not getting their comeuppance, or her French heritage linking to something.

And are we supposed to believe that she and her friend haven’t seen each other in 2 years and have barely spoken, but she’s her maid of honor?!

I listened to this because I liked the narrator on another book, and he was great again.

Wow !

Wow, what more is there to say? Such detail, such characters, such action, such drama and all set perfectly within it's period and genre. Congratulations to this writer. There is nothing in this book Jane Austen wouldn't be happy to pen or proclaim as her own. On top of all this praise is the truly fantastic narration which breaths such life and vigour into this story. Each MC has a unique voice, which enhances our understanding and appreciation of them. As an aficionado of Austen and Heyer I am so happy to have discovered this author (by accident). Can't wait to listen to it again. SUCH A PLEASURE

A wonderful love story!

This is #5 of the series which is best read in order, except that Amazon got it wrong and Noble Satyr should be #1.

It is one of the most beautiful love stories that I have read.

It is about Henri-Antoine who is the second son of a duke, very well aware of his position, gorgeous and a shocking rake. He also happens to be afflicted by epilepsy which understandably affects his behaviour.

Lisa Crisp is an orphan and badly treated by her relatives (Cinderalla comes to mind).  Her aunt's husband (a doctor), however, tries to be as kind as he can and she works closely with him in his medical  practice.

Lisa is a very caring person, has a delightful sense of humour and doesn't put up with any nonsense, except of course from her horrid aunt and cousin.

By chance, H-A and Lisa meet and from then on, the story gets more and more interesting.  It is  beautifully woven and I won't tell you more as that would give the game away, except to say that the ending is delightful.

I am so sad that the saga has come to an end as it was a truly magical read.

Good listen good series finale

Really enjoyed this listen because, like Stella Riley’s Duke of Rockliffe, Henri-Antoine has a very unique voice developed by Alex Wyndham. I think Lisa is one of my favorites of Brant’s ladies (aside Antonia of course, because let’s be honest she really is the best) because she is very steadfast and true to herself, and takes courage in all her convictions. My only complaint was there where we usually get to know our gentleman hero relatively well, I felt like I didn’t get to know H-A as well as I would have liked! They are a lovely match though.

I was sad we didn’t get to spend much more time with other characters since this was the final book, but I thought it ended very completely and we know that all the characters will be happy together in their complicated families.

So sad it’s over but looking forward to more books from LB narrated by AW!

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.
