Early Review: A Duke in Shining Armor by Loretta Chase

Nov 26, 2017

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 . . . ?


A thrilling start to the new trilogy by Chase! Olympia is the shining star in this endearing historical romance. Ripley is delightful as he chases after Olympia trying to make her see reason and keep her en-devours hidden from society. Which will be a bit difficult with her running through the streets in a wedding dress. I wish Ripley had come to grips with his feelings sooner in the story. Nonetheless it made for an amusing tale.   I thought this was a terrific novel. I'm excited to learn more and hope Ashmont finds his true love in the up coming novel. A must read!
