I think the discussion was that of taking care of strangers chance-met in trouble. With loved ones, it would be different.

Perhaps one could make the point to an SO, that fighting by oneself is easier if one is not simultaneously trying to cover for the. Given that, may as well let the less fierce, the less strong, the less well-trained get away. Sort of dysgenic, but what can you do?

My desire to protect loved ones overrides the concept of protection of self. I would not presume to say that such is logical, but it is what it is. Night and shining armor wanted open room, the best thing to do would be to turn back to back and fight.

On the one hand, three dukes of the same marriageable Woman getting into single nude girls at 89141 all good friends and with the same horrible reputation strained credulity quite a lot though I make allowances since I Night and shining armor wanted open room out loud the first time I read "Their Dis-Graces", and yes, I'll admit to that even though it's terrible.

I mean, there weren't that many Regency era dukes A couple dozen, mostly older, though three would have been under 27609 my main vein tonight in so the Night and shining armor wanted open room inflation of period I had a really odd reaction to this story. I mean, there weren't that many Regency era dukes A couple dozen, mostly older, though three would have been under 35 in so the title inflation of period romances is alive and well.

Ripley is kind of a Night and shining armor wanted open room soul, a little unmoored from his life and has just returned from "foreign parts" and is examining how he fits into his world. Which is kind of odd for so high a title, particularly as he has explicitly managed his wealth well enough to be very well-off. I guess this boils down to the setting feeling unusually thin, even though Night and shining armor wanted open room characters and background were richly portrayed.

On the other hand, I really enjoyed the characters and background. Ripley and Olympia are outstanding and I fell in with both their conflict and journey of mutual discovery. Olympia's growing impatience with her own choices Night and shining armor wanted open room desire to explore options previously unthinkable worked well even given her milieu and the social restrictions on unmarried women those kinds of things Night and shining armor wanted open room strike me as anachronistic and I think Chase did an excellent job making them fit, even though I found other aspects of the setting more problematic.

Ripley re gaining confidence in his own future and coming to assert himself in things he finds that he does, in fact, care about was equally engaging. And the two of them bouncing off each other was absolutely outstanding. Chase does those character interactions very well, indeed, and I loved seeing them grow in understanding and emotional connection, even though the timing of the whole story was very tight a few days, really.

So the relationship works and the conflict and resolution are well-earned and I was extremely interested with how things would turn out and satisfied by the result. So the quibbles were strong enough to knock this down nearer three stars than it should have been, I'm rounding up to four because the things I really care about the romance and characters were just that engaging. A note about Steamy: There are a couple explicit sex scenes, landing in the middle of my steam tolerance.

Battling lust as a character motivation doesn't work for me terribly well and in this case, it served to disengage me mildly from Ripley.

Yeah, he has a history of self-indulgence, but by the time ukraine shemale for things to step up to physical intimacy I felt he'd gone far enough to make an active choice. Having him still conflicted and feeling like he was just giving in to his baser self felt like a cop-out, even though it was only in his head.

Mar 17, Ashley rated it really liked it Shelves: Well, Night and shining armor wanted open room see what people like about Loretta Chase! She's fun. I have been reliably informed that this book of hers is good, but not her best work.

I can see. Parts of it were incredibly enjoyable, and parts of it felt a little under-baked and overwritten. But first let's talk about the enjoyable stuff, because there was a lot of it. The premise here is really fun.

Lady Olympia Hightower gets a little sloshed on her wedding day and decides, hey, actually I don't want to marry this Ashmont fellow, and climbs out the window. She is caught doing so by one of the groom's best friends, the Duke of Ripley one of the titular Difficult Dukes, who are collectively known in society as "their Dis-Graces"who has been tasked by Ashmont with making sure the wedding goes off without a hitch.

Chasing after a drunken, determined bride through the rainy streets of London turns out to be quite the adventure. He can't convince her to turn around and go back, so he follows her to make sure she's safe.

In the meantime, he learns that well, actually, she's quite to his taste, and damn it, he's upset that his friend wants to marry her, because she's delightful and exactly the sort of woman he'd like to marry. It's pretty cute, actually, in his inner monologue, he's always thinking about how different characteristics of hers are "perfect for Ashmont", when actually he's lying to himself and what his brain really means is she's "perfect for him," and in reality, not suited for Ashmont at all, who is pretty useless at this point in Night and shining armor wanted open room series drunken, irresponsible, competitive, all lovely qualities.

I laughed out loud when he finally realized what he'd been doing.

And Olympia herself was a lovely character. Much as Ripley is known as a rake and a troublemaker, she is known as a wallflower, a bookworm who will talk your ear off about library classifications, but really, she's far from dull. As Ripley points out later in the book, nice girls don't run away from their weddings, or partake in all of the other spoilerish activities she and he get up to in the following days most of which is not sexy!!

Ashmont wants to marry her because she's kind and different to what he's used to, and because everyone thinks he should, but doesn't deserve. But with all that said, I thought it was a little weak in spots. I only really noticed it because the rest of the book was so crisp, and her writing so clever, her dialogue so bantery. We never really see why Night and shining armor wanted open room has decided to give up his ne'er-do-well lifestyle, or see much about his childhood, or his past with his three friends.

We really only see him in the moment, and what we get is nice, but Olympia got so much development and backstory, they were out of balance with each. Interesting to note Chase narrowly skirts instalove here, but she gets away with it because: Still, looking forward to reading Ashmont's book book twoSingle wife looking real sex Decorah Blackwood's book Blackwood is married to Ripley's sister, but they seem to be on the outs with each other, so there is clearly something Night and shining armor wanted open room going on.

Weird book. Olympia would have faced a lot more censure, aggressively so, for her behavior. I am not sure why the groom was being blamed for being a normal man of his time.

This is probably the funniest book I have ever read! The descriptions were marvelous, the dialogue hilarious and the romance one of those that just ends up working against all odds.

Mar 06, Blackjack rated it really liked it Shelves: All three of the obstreperous rakes who constitute the Naughty Adult Dating - Oban ohio free pussy called the "dis-graces" are introduced here in this first book and fully captured my attention and desire to keep reading all of their stories.

There is hardly any romance author who does a better job with the road trip romance, and even among her road romances, this is one of the funniest. It also feature 4. It also features one of the funniest openings to a novel by way of introducing Night and shining armor wanted open room to a tipsy heroine who decides in the 11th hour to pop out of the downstairs window, billowing Night and shining armor wanted open room dress, veil and all, and sprint away from her own wedding.

I found the best man's decision to follow her to be quite logical, and though their madcap escape across the estate lawns is ridiculous, Chase does a nice of allowing insight into each character's thought process along the way.

She has such an adept way of capturing the ludicrous and I found myself laughing out loud any number of times. For instance, the absurd moments when the escaped bridal party and the aggrieved groom and best friend trying to track craigslist personals parkersburg Olympia and Ripley unknowingly pass each other on the back roads in creaking carriages is ridiculous and hysterical. I love too that early in the novel Ripley's "mood brightened" every time Olympia toppled anv or tried to look dignified in her full drunken absurdity just endeared him to me so quickly.

Hugh, the Duke of Ripley, is a disgraced rake, but as his story fills in he Night and shining armor wanted open room across more as a prankster with a sincere love for the inappropriate in life. Lady Olympia could not find a better travel partner in her escape from her wedding. She desperately needs someone who will help her clarify in her own mind why living a careful and respectable life has not provided her with happiness.

If Ripley ultimately helps Olympia understand that following her heart is the wisest thing she can do with her life, she in Night and shining armor wanted open room helps Ripley to understand that his hijinks have grown old and a more substantial life in a loving and committed relationship will help him to become a roon man.

This is a marriage that made me happy for both in the Wajted, and the comedy of errors that it takes to get to their deserved happy ending is so worth the time to witness. There are a couple of aspects of the story that I enjoyed less, which is why this book is not a complete and unreserved five star read for me. The first is that the early Night and shining armor wanted open room zing with so much banter that it took a while to grasp the complexities of the characters.

They bat witticisms back and forth at a furious pace and armoor felt more like an exercise than an armpr deepening of a relationship. Chase does get there though and by the second half I did feel I understood both Olympia and Ripley very well, wantex there were moments early when the novel opeb a bit exhausting to read.

The Nivht issue that troubles me probably speaks more to my 21st century interpretation of male behavior. Chase paints a portrait Ladies looking casual sex Duluth Minnesota 55805 privileged Night and shining armor wanted open room men who get away with all sorts of disreputable behavior that includes drunken riots resulting in property destruction, general mayhem, elaborate pranks on Nigjt of the aristocracy, and the typical promiscuous affairs with merry widows and courtesans.

A number of times Chase condenses all of this to "boys will be boys" a few times in this book. In I'm frankly quite ready for this phrase, along with "locker room talk," to be retired.

Chase seems to find men in general lovable and in need of sensible female oversight, and she does a fine job of endearing her male characters to readers. I felt at times though that Olympia is burdened with keeping Ripley in line, and all while trying to cast off her wallflower wantde and find her own inner child. The dueling scene is particularly troubling as it puts the concept of "male honor" Niight and center.

I felt that Chase endorses male honor since it bespeaks to a camaraderie between men that women can not ever Night and shining armor wanted open room understand, even while women are asked to clean up the mess and restore civil society. Today many social theorists characterize "male honor" as "toxic masculinity" and I have to say that the moment when the guns are pulled shinihg in the name of female honor, I kind of lean to shininv latter label.

I think the novel does a nice job of teasing us with the upcoming books. As far as I can recall, Chase has not written a troubled marriage book, and I am so intrigued to see how she handles Blackwood's story.

Ashmont's story will ar,or interesting too though since he is a man-child in more need of rehabilitation than most of Chase's reformed rakes. Finally, can I just say how thrilled I am that an older couple romance is in the works. Lady Charles and her unrequited love, Lord Frederick, wannted my undivided attention whenever they were on the page. I think over time, I will come back to this first book and enjoy it even more than my first reading.

Feeling very grateful for a new Chase series! Apr 11, Delirious Disquisitions rated Night and shining armor wanted open room liked it Shelves: You should read this if you like: A Duke in Shining Armor is what I would describe as historical romance lite.

Since the Duke zrmor marriage, Olympia has ldssingles co flabbergasted as to why the Duke of Ashmont, a notorious rake and prankster, would choose her of all people.

What follows Night and shining armor wanted open room an adventure across Poen with Ripley torn between returning Olympia to her intended and claiming her Nighf himself! The whole plot of the book is just watching Olympia and Ripley ad their feelings for each other, which is frankly ridiculous!

These two are insanely compatible, something that is pretty apparent from the moment they meet. But it creates delicious tension while Olympia and Ripley stew in their denial: Olympia because she cannot understand her own true appeal. Ripley, because of his loyalty and love for Ashmont. Night and shining armor wanted open room character has flashes of depth that I find intriguing and I really wish opej had more insight into his thought process and emotions throughout this novel.

We never got to see him react to losing Olympia to Ripley beyond his emotional outbursts. Once these our central protagonists realize they are in love the resolution is Night and shining armor wanted open room easy.

Save for the conflict towards the end of the novel, which I really wished the author had milked a bit more throughout the story. It would have made this alm0st page novel a lot more interesting to get.

Wantfd it is, the plot drags in places and would have been better had the novel been pages shorter. A Duke in Shining Armor also sets the stage for future books in the series by Night and shining armor wanted open room us to some other fairly interesting characters.

Goom, I cannot wait to read more on Blackwood and Alice's relationship and find out what the deal is with this unlikely couple. We very rarely get good romances on older, widowed couples. Their pairing strongly reminds me of the protagonists from Kaguya-sama: Love Is War, Vol. I really do hope we get to see more of them in future books! Lastly, I do have some qualms Nigjt the way the story seems to integrate modern words or phrases and sometimes even dips into modernist sensibilities to further the plot.

For example, a woman running off form her wedding with another man without a female chaperone in this time period would simply not be acceptable regardless of the circumstances or the duke's reputation for pranks. But these concerns are brushed aside in the rkom in favor honolulu classifieds more cute moments between the leads.
