Publisher's Summary

Surely something so temptingly wrong can’t be so deliciously right? 

A Runaway Bride....

Bookish, brainy Lady Olympia Hightower should be elated she's marrying the ‘catch' of several London seasons. Her large spendthrift family certainly is! And yet, Olympia finds herself sneaking out the chapel window, in a mad attempt to escape her glorious future as a duchess.

A Duke in Pursuit....

Virtue was never a virtue for Hugh Philemon Ancaster, Seventh Duke of Ripley, but even he can see his duty as best man requires him to recapture the fleeing bride, and return her to the bridegroom. But with every one of Olympia’s clever turns, he’s finding it harder to give her up.

A Matchmakers Dream....

©2017 Loretta Chase (P)2021 W F Howes

Critic Reviews

Terrible

I listened for as long as I could, but I had to return the book.
The "story" was terrible and the writing worse. I kept waiting for something to happen, but nothing ever did!
I liked the author's other books, but this book was awful.

I love Loretta Chase and Kate Reading...

An excellent little romp into Historical Adventures. Loretta Chase is awesome. She creates an awful lot of fun (I love her humor) and some crazy adventures. The 11 hours just disappeared.
Thank you so much Loretta.

A complete romantic romp

A rarity in that the narrator matched the exquisite humour and romance of an excellently written tale with utterly likeable character.

I loved the hero and heroine and their banter. Good story very well narrated. Worth keeping.
