A Duke in Shining Armor/ Loretta Chase/ 309 pgs

I loved some of Chase's older novels but haven't read a lot of her more recent ones. This one kicks off a new series with three dukes (of course) who are known as Their Dis-Graces for essentially being drunken high school pranksters--only they are all nearing 30. The Duke of Ashmont is set to marry Lady Olympia, a spectacle-wearing book lover. Both, however, drink more than they should to settle their nerves. Olympia runs away, pursued by Ashmont's friend the Duke of Ripley. During a series of slapstick events, Ripley and Olympia fall for each other. There was some Chase trademark witty banter between them but in the end the plot is thin and the characters didn't have enough time to really connect, not to mention grow up.
