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 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.

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 enjoyable romance from Noble. Winnifred Crane has spent in youth in scholarly pursuits, supporting her father's art history research and conducting her own. Now she wants to join the Society of Art History, but none of the men there will believe that she is knowledgeable. So she sets out on a journey to prove the provenance of a disputed painting. Her cousin George, who wants to marry her, is determined to see that she fails. But she has an unexpected ally: Jason, Duke of Rayne, who just wants to marry the daughter of the head of the Society and settle down. But he is oddly intrigued by Winn.

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