Roxton Family Saga Prequel: Renard and Antonia’s Happily Ever After
1740s France and England—the age of hedonism and enlightenment.
Renard, Duke of Roxton, head of an ancient noble family, is wealthy beyond measure. Arrogant, and self assured, this noble satyr is renowned throughout Europe as the consummate lover of other men’s wives, but Roxton’s heart remains his own.
Beautiful, optimistic, and headstrong, Antonia Moran is determined to flee the Court of Versailles and escape the lascivious attentions of the predatory Comte de Salvan.
Antonia orchestrates her escape with the unwitting assistance of the Duke of Roxton, a man she has been warned against as too dangerous for her to know. Roxton is an unlikely savior—arrogant, promiscuous, and sinister. Antonia’s unquestioning belief in him may just be his salvation, and her undoing.
Winner of the $10,000 Woman’s Day/Random House Romantic Fiction Prize, Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Medalist, B.R.A.G. Medallion honoree, and a shortlisted finalist for Romance Writers of Australia Romantic Novel of the Year. A classic Beauty and the Beast tale, this award-winning historical is a homage to Georgette Heyer’s These Old Shades.
“It is the golden age of French aristocratic life in the court of Louis XV. Beneath the posturing and hedonism lies a seething hotbed of intrigue, deceit, and treachery… characters live and breathe the atmosphere of the time; they are captivating, from the primary players, right down to the smaller, but no less important characters. Ultimately, this is a passionate romance, with added action and adventure, derring-do, and some narrow escapes! I loved it.” —Fiona Ingram, Readers’ Favorite 5 STAR Medal Winner

Not your average romance
My first paid ebook romance. I was expecting a lot given this book won such a big prize (apparently). It was actually really good. Nice romance, strong hero and heroine and lots of fun with peripheral characters and villains. The nasty Comte de Salvan is a classic and the opening scene with him is so funny!! Highly recommend. Off to download the sequel... I think I might be a fan now Ms Brant!
Loved it! A classic to savor
This romance deserves to be read more than once! There is so much to enjoy and savor - the glittering court of Louis XV's Versailles, the complexity in the characters both good and evil, the wonderful dialogue, the high adventure and of course the deeply poignant romance between Roxton and Antonia. All nicely gift wrapped in an 18th century setting. Brant has given us a gem of a book that once finished is so deeply satisfying and well written that you want to go back to the beginning and start all over again (and I did!). If I had one qualm to begin with it was the age divide between the hero and heroine. However, in Brant's skillful pen this became a mere quibble, taken within the context of the time period, and the fact I had already read the sequel first-Midnight Marriage. I predict Noble Satyr will become a classic historical romance. Read it. You won't be disappointed.
Worst romance I've read! Don't bother reading. I have read some great historical romance stories but this isn't one of them.
