Loretta Chase has worked in academe, retail, and the visual arts, as well as on the streets--as a meter maid--and in video, as a scriptwriter. She might have developed an excitingly checkered career had her spouse not nagged her into writing fiction. Her bestselling historical romances, set in the Regency and Romantic eras of the early nineteenth century, have won a number of awards, including the Romance Writers of America's RITA(R). For more about her past, her books, and what she does and doesn't do on social media, please visit her at LorettaChase.com.
"Overflowing with Chase's signature wit and laugh-out-loud humor, this series starter will definitely win readers' attention. It's not just the lyrical prose, wonderful dialogue, appealing characters, or the sensuality, but also the depth of emotions Chase infuses into her runaway bride scenario that has readers sighing with pleasure."--RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick!) "Chase's consistent gift is to gently puncture all the genre's conventions but one: the one that makes you care about her Regency hero and heroine and their happy ever after."--New York Times Book Review "Longtime romance author Chase's first Difficult Dukes historical sparkles with wit. Chase's spot-on humor and period-authentic writing combine with easy-to-love characters for a superb souffl -light romance."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "When it comes to writing unforgettable, superbly crafted historical romances, RITA Award-winning Chase is the cr me de la cr me, and A Duke in Shining Armor, which launches her new Disgraceful Dukes series, is another exquisitely sensual, perfectly calibrated masterpiece of frothy wit and flawless characterization."--Booklist (starred review) "I should have been able to read A Duke in Shining Armor in a day. Instead, it took me a week. And do you know why? Because I purposely kept putting it down once I realized that eventually I would RUN OUT OF BOOK. How DARE this book be over?"--Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, 'A' Rating "A canny bluestocking virgin and an honorable rakehell duke lead fans on a rollicking escapade in a delectable story that overflows with Chase's signature lively wordplay, hilarity, and simmering sexual tension. Another riveting read from the unparalleled Chase."--Library Journal (starred review) "Chase is a grande dame of historical romance, and her latest displays the clever plotting and brilliant dialogue for which she's known... [she] brings a fun blend of quirkiness and wit to a sexy love story that's both charmingly romantic and laugh-out-loud funny." --Kirkus Reviews
