Product description


“Chase’s consistent gift is to gently puncture all the genre’s conventions but one: the one that makes you care about her Regency hero and heroine and their happy ever after.” (New York Times Book Review)

“When it comes to writing unforgettable, superbly crafted historical romances, RITA Award–winning Chase is the crème de la crème, and A Duke in Shining Armor, which launches her new Disgraceful Dukes series, is another exquisitely sensual, perfectly calibrated masterpiece of frothy wit and flawless characterization.” (
Booklist (starred review))

“Longtime romance author Chase’s first Difficult Dukes historical sparkles with wit. Chase’s spot-on humor and period-authentic writing combine with easy-to-love characters for a superb soufflé-light romance.” (
Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“A canny bluestocking virgin and an honorable rakehell duke lead fans on a rollicking escapade in a delectable story that overflows with Chase’s signature lively wordplay, hilarity, and simmering sexual tension. Another riveting read from the unparalleled Chase.” (
Library Journal (starred review))

“Overflowing with Chase’s signature wit and laugh-out-loud humor, this series starter will definitely win readers’ attention. It’s not just the lyrical prose, wonderful dialogue, appealing characters, or the sensuality, but also the depth of emotions Chase infuses into her runaway bride scenario that has readers sighing with pleasure.” (RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick!))

“Chase is a grande dame of historical romance, and her latest displays the clever plotting and brilliant dialogue for which she’s known... [she] brings a fun blend of quirkiness and wit to a sexy love story that’s both charmingly romantic and laugh-out-loud funny.”
Kirkus Reviews)

“I should have been able to read 
A Duke in Shining Armor in a day. Instead, it took me a week. And do you know why? Because I purposely kept putting it down once I realized that eventually I would RUN OUT OF BOOK. How DARE this book be over?” (Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, ‘A’ Rating) --This text refers to the mass_market edition.

From the Back Cover

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 . . .
