When you offered DA the chance to review some of your books, I got all excited. After all, I adore mid 18th century Georgian era set novels and that seems to be your specialty. Abandoned at Versailles by her dying grandfather, Antonia is pursued by the lascivious Comte de Salvan who plans to wed her to his drug-addicted son then make Antonia his mistress. When the libertine Duke of Roxton snatches Antonia from Salvan's clutches, she believes herself rescued.

Characters live and breathe the atmosphere of the time--they are captivating, from the primary players, right down to smaller but no less important characters. Ultimately, this is an enchanting and powerful love story between two people who have all the odds stacked against them.
I thoroughly enjoyed the unfolding of this passionate romance, with added action and adventure, derring-do, and some narrow escapes! For readers who like detail there's a wealth of carefully chosen gems to enhance the picture. This is a wonderful read for romance and historical fiction fans. Well-crafted plot, historical accuracy, and believable characters.
I loved it. This is so much more than a love story--it's a story of culture, political events and the plight of those who must live in the tempest. The romance between Roxton and Antonia was so well-written. The pairing of the dissolute Roxton with the much younger, innocent Antonia could have been the recipe for disaster but Ms Brant pulls it off brilliantly.
Antonia may be young and virginal but, having lived in the licentious court of Louis XV, she is certainly not naive in the ways of the world and has no illusions about Roxton. Bored with the world of excess around him, it is easy to see why Roxton would be enchanted by Antonia's intelligence, openness, and spirited nature. Noble Satyr will certainly remain on my shelf as a keeper. Her novels are "smart, witty, historical adventures full of heartfelt drama with a happily ever after".

He wants nothing to do with Mlle.
