An absolutely brilliantly written book

Lucinda Brant has quickly become one of my all time favorite authors. Her command of writing for this era is superbly shown in all of her books and this one is no exception. Her characters, from main all the way down to the maids have each unique personalities and NONE resemble any of her other books, as many other authors do. The only point I have found in common, and only in a couple of her books, is that the hero finds out information the heroine was to inform him of from someone else and thus the finale we expect as readers does not come to pass.
I do hope that the next book is the ending to this wonderful series as I would loath to wait on yet another book due to my impatience. It's funny how when you love a book you commit every free moment to read and yet the end is unwelcome. LB's quick wit comes through her writing and I am in awe of her mastery in not only developing characters and building them to the point of intimate familiarity but also at the same time allowing and building strong personal attachments to these characters for it's readers. Her hero in the Noble Satyr is one I will never forget, so realistic the portrayal. I think I have read that book about 5 times in just the past two months. This book is also a masterpiece.
