This Sequel to Noble Satyr didn't disappoint. This is now my fav read by Lucinda Brant. It is the story of Antonia and Roxton's son Julian, who is married off at Midnight (reason for the title) when just 16 years old (for a unpardonable act which his father cannot forgive) to 12 year old Deborah who has no clue what is going on only that she is put through a marriage ceremony with a weeping boy who is the handsomest boy she has ever set eyes on! Julian is then banished to the continent and Deborah does not see him again for 9 years! Not to spoil the plot, but the couple are reunited under interesting circumstances and Julian has come to claim his bride before she is seduced by his wicked half brother! Deborah has no recollection the marriage ever took place and Julian lets her think he is a man of no particular family and courts her, elopes with her and beds her! Needless when Deb finds out the truth she is all too willing to believe the gossip that the Marquess of Alston is a reprobate and a rake and she is truly horrified of the predicament she finds herself in. Not to spoil the rest of the book, Brant again writes her characters with emotion and intensity, and the secondary characters (Antonia, Roxton and some others from Noble Satyre make a significant reappearance) are really well drawn. There is humor and plenty of action. This book will keep you up all night wanting to know what happens! A great read!!
