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 . . . ?
Oh my gosh! How I loved Ripley and Olympia's story. Ripley chases his best friend's runaway bride, Olympia. Olympia is the regency version of a nerd and she's now my spirit animal. She's the perfect wallflower that even Ripley has his eye on. Even though Ripley is known as one of the "Dis-Graces", he's the highly intelligent one and the perfect match for Olympia. A folly of errors keeps the story flowing and the reader laughing.
If you enjoy historical romance with a unique protagonist, I highly recommend reading Duke in Shining Armor.
