Read A Duke in Shining Armor (Difficult Dukes, #1) Online Free - 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 . . . ?

I've given this an A at AAR.
A new book from Loretta Chase is always cause for celebration, and her latest, A Duke in Shining Armor, gets her new Difficult Dukes trilogy off to a start worthy of much festivity. On the face of it, it’s the very simple story of two people falling in love with the...

A+ for narration, A for content. Foregone conclusion :)
Was there any likelihood that this, the latest release from the phenomenal author/narrator team of Loretta Chase and Kate Reading, was going to get anything other than top marks? Nah. It’s fabulous, in terms of both narration and content. In ...

A Duke of Shining Armor is a book that has me in a knot, and I curse GR for not giving us the option of rating with half stars. I am still undecided whilst writing this review. We’ll see.
Olympia has to marry the Duke of Ashmont. Her family is not facing imminent financial ruin but it’s j...

2/5; 2 stars; C
I liked many aspects of this books but not enough to wipe away the vague sense of disappointment that an experienced author could be satisfied to allow this to go to print in this condition. I just had the feeling that I was looking at a jigsaw puzzle that has quite a few of the pi...

This was 2.5 stars because, well, Loretta Chase. And she can write, no doubt about that.
But I was a bit underwhelmed by this story.
I have a number of gripes, but probably my biggest was the incredible immaturity and downright shallow idiocy of the three dukes in it, and I am including our purpor...

I'm having rotten luck with historical romances, that even my tried-and-tested authors have failed.
The two protagonists in A Duke in Shining Armor are too busy being glib and wittily sarcastic to notice each other and properly fall in love. This book comes across as a road-trip chicklit romance -...

So-so first half. Super second half. My initial reaction is that I couldn't love this quite as much as I wanted to. However, it is Loretta Chase, and that's never a bad thing.
I'll want to think about this for a while.
Also, she has set this up so that the two remaining dukes' stories should be ve...

So we finally have a H who is not the brightest bulb in the room and knows it and others around him agree with this. He may be a nobleman..but he's not "noble".
Trying to put his conscience first? Nope not this guy. Thankfully it saves us pages after pages of inner turmoil when he takes off with h...
