BarryNo one said he had to be nice to the woman who had singlehandedly destroyed his hopes of ever securing the dukedom from his much older and far too boring cousin, John Pettygrove, Duke of Snowley. But Barrington Chapple, Marquess of Ryde, has never accepted defeat, whether it is on the battlefield, at the card table or in the bedroom. Will he find a way to win the prize he seeks...and maybe the one he comes to crave?LottieThe gods must hate her! Charlotte had never set her cap at any man, like her three younger sisters had done, and what had it gotten her? An arranged marriage to a man more than twice her age, and a title she could live without. But as the oldest and still unmarried daughter of Nigel Hawthorne, she had little choice in the matter. Still, what could be worse than marrying an older man to whom one is not in the least attracted? How about falling in love with his cousin and heir?
'They were no longer partners keen to test out their abilities in lighthearted play; they were enemies bent on each other's destruction.'

The cultural milieu in the 'Age of Goethe' of eighteenth-century Germany is given fresh context in this art historical study of the noted writer's patroness: Anna Amalia, Duchess of Weimar-Sachsen-Eisenach. An important noblewoman and patron of the arts, Anna Amalia transformed her court into one of the most intellectually and culturally brilliant in Europe; this book reveals the full scope of her impact on the history of art of this time and place. More than just biography or a patronage study, this book closely examines the art produced by German-speaking artists and the figure of Anna Amalia herself. Her portraits demonstrate the importance of social networks that enabled her to construct scholarly, intellectual identities not only for herself, but for the region she represented. By investigating ways in which the duchess navigated within male dominated institutions as a means of advancing her own self-cultivation - or Bildung - this book demonstrates the role accorded to women in the public sphere, cultural politics, and historical memory. Cumulatively, Christina Lindeman traces how Anna Amalia, a woman from a small German principality, was represented as an active participant in enlightened discourses. The author presents a novel and original argument concerned with how a powerful woman used art to shape her identity, how that identity changed over time, and how people around her shaped it - an approach that elucidates the power of portraiture in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Europe.
