Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Noble's gently paced Regency layers a sweet romance over an intriguing travelogue. Winnifred "Winn" Crane, daughter of a learned professor, is determined to prove the true identity of the painter of a famous work, and thereby earn a place in the all-male Historical Society. Her plans require her to travel to Germany, and Jason Cummings, duke of Rayne, agrees to accompany her to Dover, where she will embark on a ship to Europe. But plans go awry, and the pair must use every resource to survive their journey across Germany as Winn searches for the painter's letters and Jason gradually learns how to be more than just his title. The romance between Winn and Jason is gradual and comfortable, and as their burgeoning friendship evolves into a believable and captivating love, the story evolves into an outstanding and memorable tale.

    An entertaining late Regency

    In 1822 Winnifred Crane wants to join the male only historical society. She applies for membership based on authoring highly regarded papers and recognition of her accomplishments by several members. When she is rejected, Winn is upset and angry as she knows gender prejudice is why they said no. Winn decides she must prove her worth at a much greater level than a male would have to demonstrate. Her plan is to uncover the identity of an anonymous artist of a renowned painting.

    Duke Jason Cummings seeks to escape the marriage minded bimbos and bimbo moms. When he learns Winn is traveling to Germany, Jason offers to accompany her to Dover. However, something happens and he is forced to join her as she crosses the Channel on to the continent. However, as they become friends and begin to fall in love, her fiancé and others chase after them and both fear once she completes her quest, their relationship will also be completed.

    The key to this entertaining late Regency is the romantic subplot is deftly developed so that wary associates become respectful friends before falling in love. The story line provides the audience with a charming Grand Tour, but it is Winn's enthusiasm and intelligence that fans will admire as Kate Noble affirms we have come a long way from early nineteenth century exclusion from academic societies due to gender.

    I loved this third book in the series. I loved the way Kate Nob

    I loved this third book in the series. I loved the way Kate Noble described lasting love between a man and woman as the sum of caring love, friendship, and lust. So many books just focus on the lust, but not this one. We saw the care giving, the friendship, and the lust all developed through the book.
    A good read.

    Kate Noble does it again!

    I have read Kate Noble's other trhee books,and this one manages to tie all my favorite characters together (sometimes in very minor roles) as well as adding several new and beguiling characters. I never liked Jason Cummings in The Summer of You, but he grew up as most men do - even today. He still has flaws - as both Winn and Sarah can attest to, but he is a nero nevertheless. i don't know if any women like Winn Crane really existed back in 1822, but I sure hope some did. I enjoyed the trip through Bravaria and Austria. Ms Noble has a way with words that can describe a setting in only a few sentences leaving time to develop her characters. Her unique style of writing takes the reader on a journey not just geographically but emotionally as well. Who would have thought that you can learn something from a romance novel and still come away with all the escapism that one wishes for in this genre.

    Another Great Noble!

    A road trip romance, so fun! There's even a glimpse of the heroines of Compromised as tweens.
