Reader Davida sent us this message (and thus wins a book): "I would love to read a book where the heroine is forced to dress like a man. Georgette Heyer's The Masqueraders is one of my favorites but just picturing one of the Wenches writing a book with a Masquerade in the storyline would be thrilling. I think the feeling when the hero doesn't understand why he is having feelings for his "friend" is very sexy and exciting."
We're expanding this question to explore the whole idea of the "chick-in-pants" trope -- which seems to have gone a little out of fashion, possibly because readers feel it's not very believable. But is that the case? The portrait on the right is of a young man -- William Fraser in 1801. Could he not be a woman in disguise?
Over to the wenches.
