Review: Duke in Shining Armor

* First in a new trilogy* 
A Duke in Shining Armor (Difficult Dukes, #1)
Lady Olympia's supposed to get married this morning. After years, she's finally found herself a husband. But she's having a hard time saying yes to him. In fact, after a few sips of liquid courage, she means not to say yes. She escapes out the window.

The groom's best friend has one job for the wedding, make sure everything goes off without a hitch. She when he spies a lady in white running away, he follows her.  He intends to take her back to get marries, but Lady Olympia has other ideas.

Finally, he agrees to take her to her aunt's house. But the journey takes longer than he realizes. For the first time in his life, he's desperately trying to do the right thing, but nothing works out the way he expected. He certainly can't be attractive to his best friend's almost bride.
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this novel. I loved the Olympia was so bookish and had a system for the library books. I love that she wore glasses. I loved that the ton thought her bookish and boring but Hugh brought out her playful side. I loved their banter and how they drove each other crazy. I enjoyed Hugh trying desperately to do the right thing for the first time in his life. I appreciated the bond between the Dukes. I really enjoyed his aunt the part she played in the story - support, comfort, and a few high jinx herself. I'm eager to read the next book in the trilogy.

Cover Thoughts: Stunning
Source: book sent for review (Avon Addict)
Fun Fact: I went to an Avon author event with Loretta Chase and 4 other authors. It was magical.

Library Recommendation: Grab this one for your public library, you won't regret it!
