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 received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Olympia is dangerously close to being on the shelf but when she serendipitously catches the attention of a duke, she has a chance to help her large family from f...

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 ...

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...

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...

4.5 stars. Duke in Shining Armor is a Regency romance - one I thoroughly enjoyed. I loved Lord of Scoundrels when I read it by the same author, and this one pretty much matches it.
There are three Dukes - their Dis Graces as they are known. They are men in their late twenties, always out for a go...

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...

I was looking for a good historical romance and this one was exactly what I needed. Loretta Chase made me laugh with Ripley and Olympia's runaway adventures. And I loved how this bookish woman took down the mighty duke.
I look forward to reading more stories revolving around the Dis-Graces.

This is the story of a runaway bride….and the best man she kidnapped.
Olympia Hightower is boring, at least she thinks so. She is about to be married to a man she doesn’t love and can barely stand. The nerves and doubts get too much for her to handle, so she flees, but not before the best man sees...

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 -...
