Summary

Summary

Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award

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 . . . ?

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Kate Reading’s command of this sexy story instantly grips the listener…Reading’s precision and tempo during the repartee between the characters make the listener eager for the next sentence. Ripley’s fight to keep the runaway bride, Olympia, at arm’s length and her shock at his interest are enchanting. Reading provides a thrilling enactment of the climactic altercation between Ripley and Ashmont. Here’s hoping she narrates the next book in the series.
