A Duke in Shining Armor

Difficult Dukes

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Not all dukes are created equal. Most are upstanding members of Society. And then there’s the trio known as Their Dis-Graces.

Hugh Philemon Ancaster, seventh Duke of Ripley, will never win prizes for virtue. But even he draws the line at running off with his best friend’s bride. All he’s trying to do is recapture the slightly inebriated Lady Olympia Hightower and return her to her intended bridegroom.

For reasons that elude her, bookish, bespectacled Olympia is supposed to marry a gorgeous rake of a duke. The ton is flabbergasted. Her family’s ecstatic. And Olympia? She’s climbing out of a window, bent on a getaway. But tall, dark, and exasperating Ripley is hot on her trail, determined to bring her back to his friend. For once, the world-famous hellion is trying to do the honorable thing.

So why does Olympia have to make it so deliciously difficult for him . . . ?

Customer Reviews

That was not Loretta Chase I expected.....

I couldn’t even finish the book....story seemed waaaay outlandish and contrived and silly to the point of unbelievable. I was super surprised (in an unpleasant way) how different it was from the writing that i enjoyed in Lord of Scoundrels, Last Hellion, Captives of the Night, etc. Def. disappointed me. Too bad.

Loved the story very witty, funny and romantic loved all the characters it made me want to know more about the others stories

Fun & Witty Historical Romance

I must admit that I am a fan of Loretta Chase, having first been hooked with her Dressmaker's series. I adore the hero's in her books because it's a nice change when the hero's aren't dark and brooding (although I do love a complicated hero). This story is about Olympia, who is about to marry one of the three dukes (all friends) who are disgraces to society. She drinks a bit too much and ends up running away, tailed by another one of the three dukes, Hugh, Duke of Ripley. He is trying to bring her back to his friend, but finding that she is a bit strong-willed and won't be pushed around. The entire story takes place over only a few days, and there is a lot of witty dialogue and fun exchanges between the two characters. I think that's one of the reason's I enjoyed the book so much - it reminded me of P.G. Wodehouse in it's light-ness and fun banter. If you are looking for a fun historical romance with fresh characters, then pick this one up.
