Satyr’s Son: A Georgian Historical Romance (Roxton Family Saga Book 5)

Lucinda Brant
Narrator: Alex Wyndham

HISTORICAL:  Miss Lisa Crisp is a poor orphan. Her family treats her as if she is the blemish of the family. She spends most of her time working with the sick. One day while aiding a friend, a man falls and has a seizure at her feet. She immediately tends to him in his moment of need. It turns out the man is Lord Henri-Antoine, the second son of a duke! He has been diagnosed with the falling sickness ever since he was a boy. As fate would have it Lisa and Henri-Antoine happen to be invited to the same wedding and the love they develop for each other affects everyone around them. Can they be together without their reputations being ruined?

This love brings tension so thick one could cut it with a knife. The story may sound familiar as there are similarities to the classic story of Cinderella. And, while this made the ending predictable, the journey was filled twists and turns.  At times these two characters can be frustrating.  Lisa doesn’t believe in her self-worth and falls for Henri-Antoine based on his looks. Henri-Antoine is not very kind toward anyone except when he gives spectacular gifts. However, the Georgian world building is absolutely wonderful and the writing is excellent. The author really makes the reader feel they are in Georgian society and the scenes are very descriptive. 

Alex Wyndham’s narration is delightful. Using his very soothing voice, he gives all the characters’ voices individual and very unique tones. His voice is able to transport the listener to Georgian England with the perfect accents! The narrator was able to create even more tensions that made this story unpausable. Overall, this is a wonderfully familiar story set in England!
