Lucinda Brant's writing is incredibly evocative, emotional, and a treat for the senses —Annette Blair, New York Times bestselling author

Roxton Family Saga: Antonia and Jonathon’s Happily Ever After.

1770s 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.

Seldom has history and romance melded together with such beauty and delectable deliciousness than this! Pitch perfect yumminess from one of the brightest stars!” —TJ Mackay, InD'Tale magazine 5 STAR Crowned Heart

Brant has upended a number of romantic tropes all in the one book. The gently moving love story between the couple is a true delight. The combination of Lucinda Brant’s storytelling and Alex Wyndham’s delectable voice once again proves to be absolutely irresistible.” —Caz Owens, All About Romance audiobook review, rated Desert Isle Keeper

If you listen to only one historical romance all year, let it be Autumn Duchess! Not only does it sport one of the best narrations I have ever listened to, it's also a fantastically developed historical with real depth to its plot and a heartfelt, unique romance.” —BJ AudioGals audiobook review

Each time I listen to hugely talented Alex Wyndham narrating one of Lucinda Brant’s novels, I am completely blown away. This duo is so perfect together that I am completely lost to all else once I start a Brant/Wyndham audiobook.” —Wendy Romantic Historical Reviews audiobook review

About the Author:

When not bumping about Georgian London in her sedan chair or exchanging gossip with perfumed and patched courtiers in the gilded drawing rooms of Versailles, Lucinda writes award-winning Georgian historical romances and mysteries with lashings of romance. All her novels are set in mid-1700s Georgian England, with occasional crossings to the France of Louis XV. Lucinda pulls up the reins at the French Revolution where she lost a previous life at the guillotine for her unpardonably hedonistic lifestyle as a layabout aristo!
