Another gem from Lucinda Brant’s pen takes readers back into the loves and
lives of the Roxtons and to the Georgian era. The plot is intriguing as
hints of dark secrets and strange motives gradually unfold. People with
both personal and political motives in engineering this match (or
sabotaging it) surround Deborah. Whom can she trust? The energy in this
novel starts on page one with a mysterious midnight marriage that sets
the tone and pace. The action continues and never lets up. Brant isn’t
afraid to subject her heroine to a tumultuous roller-coaster of events,
and feisty Deborah is up to it! The love story between Julian and
Deborah is tender, and filled with the kind of blunders young people
make when setting out on the rocky road of true love. Nice twists and
turns, dramatic revelations, and some enjoyable chaos make this a book
that keeps the reader turning the pages. They will not be disappointed.
★★★★★ Top Pick—I loved it
Midnight Marriage carries on the Roxton series tradition with still another wonderful tale set in the 1700s where life is anything but simple. In this engaging story you will once again be reminded why Lucinda Brant’s books are such a treasure.

Magnificent! It's been a while since I read something that actually had a surprising plot line. This truly had me in constant suspense. The writing is very well done and the historical accuracy is impressive. Even the “good” characters demonstrate a shocking level of class-snobbery, which is perfect! They should. It is the the mid 18th century, after all. I do not exaggerate when I say that this is on par with Dangerous Liaisons, though there is no sex (only alluded to). Wonderful book!

If I could get in a time machine and travel back to the 18th century for a visit, I undoubtedly would, but given that that's an impossibility, the next best thing is pick up a Georgian historical by Lucinda Brant and settle in for a trip back in time just the same. This was the first book I have read by Ms. Brant, and I was thoroughly enchanted. I can honestly say, has turned out to be one of my favorite stories in this genre (and I've been reading this genre for a very, very long time). The characters are well-developed, convincingly aristocratic yet all too human, and altogether sympathetic. The dialogue is witty, the plot is fast-paced, the writing elegant, confident, and engaging. I can't wait to read the other two books in this trilogy: Noble Satyr and Autumn Duchess. Thank you, Ms. Brant, for allowing me to travel back to the Georgian age— and to have so much fun during my visit. I'll be back soon!

I have been a fan of Georgette Heyer since 1970, and if my guess is correct, so has the author. Having suffered through reading many aspiring writers in this genre I can say with enthusiasm that this writer reaches in the right direction. The attention to detail is remarkable without being obtrusive, and that the details are correct is a delight. I ask myself about the size and depth of the writers library, and I sincerely hope to meet her at one of the many conventions I attend. I will most definitely be reading her other titles, and I truly hope she maintains this level... And kudos to editors who don't fiddle unnecessarily!

Excellent Georgian Historical Romance with all the details and drama that come with a true complete novel! As you read this precious jewel of a book you laugh and cry and you will not want to put this book down until you are done! Each character is so delectable and with unique personalities that you will feel withdrawals as you finish reading it. Ms. Lucinda Brant has totally got me started on Georgian Historical Romance and now I'm looking to read more by her and by same genre. Enjoy, and be sure you have a box of Kleenex handy because you will need it. Great love story.
