Roxton is an unlikely savior—arrogant, promiscuous, and sinister. Antonia’s unquestioning belief in him may just be his salvation, and her undoing.<br /><br />Winner of the $10,000 Woman’s Day/Random House Romantic Fiction Prize, Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Medalist, B.R.A.G.

Description :  Brant's writing is incredibly evocative, emotional, and a treat for the senses —Annette Blair, NY Times bestselling author<br /><br />Roxton Family Saga Book 2: Antonia and Jonathon’s Happily Ever After<br /><br />1770s England: Treat, the ancestral home of the dukes of Roxton.<br />Antonia, Dowager Duchess of Roxton, has mourned the loss of her duke for three long years. Her grief is all-consuming. Then into her life steps a most unconventional man.<br />Jonathon Strang, East India merchant and widower, lets nothing stand in the way of success, in business or in pleasure.<br />On spying Antonia, Jonathon is immediately smitten. He sees a beautiful woman who has not only lost the love of her life, and her exalted position in society, but is bullied, badgered, and totally misunderstood. She needs someone to talk to and a sympathetic shoulder to cry on.<br />Antonia’s opinion of Jonathon is less charitable. Insufferably arrogant. Overbearing. Dangerous. She must keep her distance. Better still, she will ignore him and pretend they had never been introduced.<br /><br />Widely regarded a classic and a rule breaker, Autumn Duchess is a rare example of a much-loved heroine’s second chance at love in the autumn of her life. Deeply emotional and uplifting, this stand-alone story takes the Roxton Family saga into the bold new future of the next generation, led by Antonia’s son, the 6th Duke of Roxton.<br /><br />Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Finalist, RONE Awards Finalist, and B.R.A.G.

Description :  Winter 1763. Alec, Lord Halsey is sent on a diplomatic mission to Midanich, imperial outpost of the Holy Roman Empire, to bargain for the freedom of imprisoned friends. Midanich is a place of great danger and dark secrets; a country at civil war; ruled by a family with madness in its veins. For Alec it is a place of unspeakable memories from which he barely escaped and vowed never to return. But return he must, if he is to save the lives of Emily St. Neots and Sir Cosmo Mahon. In a race against time, Alec and the English delegation journey across the icy wasteland for the castle fortress where Emily and Cosmo are imprisoned. The severe winter weather is as much an enemy as the soldiers of the opposing armies encamped along the way. Awaiting him at his destination is the Margrave and his sister, demanding nothing less than Alec’s head on a pike.<br /><br />2016 RONE Finalist: Best Published Mystery<br />2016 RONE Mystery/Suspense Cover Design: Finalist and Runner-Up<br />Full-length novel (130,000 words, about 520 standard printed pages)<br />Non explicit (mild sensuality, mild violence)<br />Character-driven amateur sleuth<br /><br />“Lucinda Brant has once again constructed a deliciously complex story that is immensely readable and completely un-put-down-able. The dénouement is as chilling as it is gobsmacking; and although I will say that I had an inkling of where things were headed, she kept me guessing right up until the last minute, and then completely wrong-footed me. If you’re looking to read a gripping, intelligently written and skilfully crafted historical mystery, then you need look no further. I promise you won’t regret it.” —Caz Owens ALL ABOUT ROMANCE, rated a DESERT ISLE KEEPER<br /><br />“One of the things that I have come to admire about Lucinda Brant’s writing is how intricately layered her plots are. She reveals things throughout the story, which keeps the reader from becoming frustrated, but also holds back enough that the ending always is a surprise. My first encounter with her work was a mere five months ago, and I have now read all of her full-length books. Every one of them is worthy of five stars, but I think that Deadly Peril is possibly the best yet. It is, quite simply, a perfect combination of mystery, romance, and history.” — Lady Wesley ROMANTIC HISTORICAL REVIEWS, rated 5 STARS<br /><br />Connecting Books<br />Many readers enjoy Lucinda Brant's books as part of a wider series since her characters inhabit the same meticulously-researched 18th Century world with people and events cross-referenced throughout.

Description :  The Roxtons are back! Romance. Drama. Intrigue. Family secrets. There’s never a dull moment for the 18th Century’s first family…<br /><br />Roxton Family Saga Book 4: Mary and Christopher’s Happily Ever After<br /><br />1770s Gloustershire and Hampshire.<br />Widowed and destitute, Lady Mary Cavendish is left with only her pride. Daughter of an earl and great-granddaughter to a Stuart King, expectations demand she remarry. But not just any man will do; her husband must rank among the nobility. As always, Mary will do her duty and ignore her heart.<br />Country squire Christopher Bryce has secretly loved his neighbor Mary for many years. Yet, he is resigned to the cruel reality they are not social equals and thus can never share a future together. Never mind that his scandalous past and a heartbreaking secret make him thoroughly unworthy of such a proud beauty.<br />But with the help of a family ghost, and the never ordinary members of the Roxton family, Mary and Christopher realize that a happily ever after might just be possible.<br /><br />Fans of the series will delight in being reacquainted with the fascinating, always surprising, and never ordinary members of the Roxton family.<br />Readers’ Favorite Silver Medalist, and B.R.A.G. Medallion honoree.<br /><br />Character-driven romantic adventure<br />Non explicit (mild sensuality)<br />Story length 152,000 words (not including bonus material)<br /><br />The Roxton Family comes to life in audiobook, featuring the irresistible "smooth as melted chocolate" voice of award-winning, RADA-trained British actor Alex Wyndham<br /><br />“Once again, I was totally captivated. Another superb book to add to an equally superb series. If you have not yet read this series, then you have many hours of wonderful storytelling to look forward to…” —Carol Cork Rakes And Rascals HIGHLY RECOMMENDED STELLAR 5 STARS<br /><br />“While PROUD MARY can be read as a standalone, there is much more pleasure to be had by reading the series in order and learning to know and love this family as much as I and many other readers have. Each book has been a joy to read, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.” —Lady Wesley Romantic Historical Reviews, Rated 5 STARS<br /><br />“I never pass up anything written by Lucinda Brant and having loved each and every previous book in the Roxton Family Saga it was inevitable that PROUD MARY wind up on my must read list. PROUD MARY is a love story of unrequited and unacceptable love and passion. But if we’ve learned anything in the previous Roxton Family tales love has a way of conquering all stereotypes and norms. And so PROUD MARY, a true Georgian historical romance, carries on a proud tradition of endearing and engaging works of art by Lucinda Brant.”—SWurman, Night Owl Reviews 5 STARS TOP PICK<br /><br />Connecting Books<br />Many readers enjoy Lucinda Brant's books as part of a wider series since her characters inhabit the same meticulously-researched 18th Century world with people and events cross-referenced throughout.
