The story of Antonia, heroine of NOBLE SATYR, and how she emerges from utter despair after the death of her husband and soul mate the Duke of Roxton to unexpectedly find love again.
Brant's writing is incredibly evocative, emotional, and a treat for the senses —Annette Blair, NY Times bestselling authorRoxton Family Saga Book 2: Antonia and Jonathon’s Happily Ever After1770s England: Treat, the ancestral home of the dukes of Roxton.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.Jonathon Strang, East India merchant and widower, lets nothing stand in the way of success, in business or in pleasure.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.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.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.Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Finalist, RONE Awards Finalist, and B.R.A.G.
