The Autumn Duchess, what a perfect way to begin the season. I read this book several times over the years and it is a favorite in fact if I had to choose one of Lucinda Brant's Roxton series to call my favorite this would be it. Ms. Brant's skill as a story teller is always reinforced when I find myself completely lost in her books. This is Historical Romance at its best. If you care for impeccable research, terrific writing, and characters that you can fall in love with, it doesn't get any better. This can be enjoyed as a standalone novel, but what fun would that be? Start from the beginning and be transported back to opulent Georgian England.
