Roxton Series Book 2, Sequel to Noble Satyr Twelve-year-old Deborah is married off at midnight to sixteen-year-old Julian, the handsome but volatile heir to the Roxton Dukedom, who then disappears from her life. Nine years later, Julian returns incognito to consummate his marriage before Deborah is seduced into bigamous wedlock with his nemesis half-brother. When Deb rescues and falls in love with the wounded duelist Julian Hesham, she does not suspect the stranger with the emerald green eyes to be the Marquis of Alston and her husband. After the honeymoon Deb discovers the appalling truth and that the Marquis of Alston is wanted by French authorities for seducing the innocent daughter of a Farmer-General. Can the handsome stranger with whom Deb spent ten wonderful weeks truly be one and the same as the nobleman Polite Society has branded a rakehell? Will Deborah forgive Julian's cruel deception? Can their marriage survive beyond seduction?

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect follow up to Noble Satyr June 21 2012
By Crystal
Format:Hardcover
Of course the lovely Lucinda Brant sought me out for another review and I must say that woman is boosting my ego to no end!! After reading the amazing Noble Satyr and loving it and it's authenticity she sent along the follow up, Midnight Marriage, which follows the story of le Duc and Antonia's son, Julian. Once again I am in awe of Lucinda's originality to go outside of the norm and use historical moments to create an elaborate story.

As unique as this story is from her other writings I still highly recommend it (read Noble Satyr first though, 'kay?). I also adore this story due to it being loosely based on the real life marriage of Charles Lennox, 2nd Duke of Richmond and his wife Lady Sarah Cadogan in 1720. Sigh, I love history!

4.0 out of 5 stars Midnight Marriage by Lucinda Brant, a book review March 10 2011
By word addicted - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Midnight Marriage by Lucinda Brant is a Georgian romance inspired by true historical events. In Midnight Marriage, a young girl of only twelve and a rebellious youth are wed in a ceremony conducted in the dark of night. Then the youth is whisked away by his father, and the young girl returned to her bed. She does not clearly remember the incident as she was drugged. Years later, as an adult, she meets him again but does not realize she is wed to him. He wishes to win her heart without her knowing of his noble title, and on his own merits. They wed again as adults. The rub comes when she learns his real identity and realizes that she has been deceived.

There is plenty of subterfuge in this tale, with several subplots skillfully woven throughout. This well-written historical romance clearly illustrates the author's talent for story-telling. It is engaging, authentic, and comfortably paced. The dialogue is believable and stays true to its period. The settings, outfits, and behavior of the characters are portrayed in delicious detail.

This is a book I would highly recommend to any readers who like a sweet historical romance rife with intrigue and complicated by societal expectations of the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Georgian Historical Romance you have to read! March 6 2011
By Melhaf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
"Well if you like "Noble Satyr" book one of the Roxton series, you are going to love "Midnight Marriage" by Lucinda Brant. I seriously have devoured Lucinda as an author as her writing flows so well for a book of this era. Lucinda captivates you from the beginning and you won't be able to put this down.

This wonderful Georgian Historical Romance involves a captivating young lady with striking red hair, Deborah. She is a breath of fresh air and goes about her ways inwhich she shouldn't for a young lady unwed. Any gentlemen would indeed love to take her hand in marriage on her beauty alone. But she isn't interested in anyone for his noble status, she is waiting for mister right, a man that truely, deeply loves her and her alone.

Deborah continues to measure every man up to the man she dreams about in her sleep. Dreams of this perfect man that has invaded her nightdreams since she was 12. Does she find this man? Or Does she do the right thing and marry a man to uphold the families reputation.

I like that this book can be read as a stand alone book, but you will love it that much wanting to know more about the roxtons: "noble satyr is the 1st book of the series then "midnight marriage". And yay book three is in the making right now.

All i will say is that there is a midnight marriage.... sword fights and carriages pulled along coble stones with beautiful ladies dressed in gowns ready for a ball. Just as i thought Lucindas books couldnt get anybetter, this did. So sit down, relax with a
high tea and your best sunday dress on, loosing yourself in the world of the Roxton series. (Roxton is a Duke by the way). :)

It won't disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rake Returns for his Bride Oct. 22 2011
By Sophia Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Impressive! Sequels aren't generally as powerful as the first book, but Lucinda Brant proves the exception.
This is a sequel to 'Noble Satyr'. Both books have a Heyeresque feel to them and as I said in the first books review, that is a good thing. The historical backdrop of Georgian England (Bath)/France (Paris) was still there (foreshadowings of the French Revolution and unrest), but the focus was on the H/H. The intrigue and plot turns were good- things are rarely what they seem. I like how the story begins with an inexplicable event and then unravels to explain it and the consequences of it. The characters were ones with which I could be sympathetic. It was nice to meet up with favorite characters from the first book and oh so bittersweet to see them as the older generation. -; But that is life.

Good Read!

1.0 out of 5 stars It had potential Oct. 20 2012
By K. Sexton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This story intrigued me from the first chapter. The prologue and first couple of chapters were very well written. Then it was like the author handed the project over to a romantically teenager and said here write it. The heroine falls in love with the hero for no other reason than his looks in spite of the fact that he treats her absolutely awful. The author also swapped from using realistic historical language to using a heroine who freely curses (absolutely not common in that day) and other unrealistic modern expressions. Even for free, I would not recommend this :(.

1.0 out of 5 stars How did this get published? June 26 2013
By Angela Vendetti - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love a good romance novel. This is not one. And I read the whole thing. After the first few pages I was wondering where this was going to go. There were so many things that made no sense, (Why is she wearing a man's shirt and petticoats while playing the viola in the woods? Where's her skirt? If she needs a man's shirt, why not breeches and boots?) The dialogue was lacking and there was none of the wonderful first meeting followed by the building of tension between the characters as their attraction increases. She straddled the man and he was in love. Ok, so that would make sense if the book was written by a man, but that wouldn't be in the historical romance genre. Then they kissed once, out where people could see them and she wasn't ruined? And then they got married? Has this author ever read a period romance novel before? About 1/2 way into the book I started to get interested, but it only lasted about 10 pages and it was back to drivel and actions the story line did not support. (How could the duke be throwing a welcoming party for his son's bride the night they first meet her when they didn't know she was coming? That's some wicked party planning. And why was she back in bed with him the day after she said nothing could induce her to resume relations? Please, give me something interesting to read!) I don't like to criticize, but this book was so bad I couldn't, in all good conscience, encourage anyone else to read it.
