A few months ago I was able to review and giveaway the book the Guardian Duke by Jamie Carie. Well I was able to receive an advanced reader copy of the next book in the series, The Forgiven Duke.
About the book:
Tethered by her impulsive promise to marry Lord John Lemon – the path of least resistance – Alexandria Featherstone sets off toward Iceland in search of her parents with a leaden heart. A glimpse of her guardian, the Duke of St. Easton – the path less traveled by – on Dublin’s shore still haunts her.
Will he come after her? Will he drag her back to London, quelling her mission to rescue her treasure-seeking parents, or might he decide to throw caution to the wind and choose Foy Pour Devoir: “Faith for Duty,” the St. Easton motto. The Featherstone motto Valens et Volens: “Willing and Able,” beats in her heart and thrums through her veins. She will find her parents and find their love, no matter the cost.
The powerful yet wing-clipped Duke of St. Easton has never known the challenge that has become his life since hearing his ward’s name. Alexandria Featherstone will be the life or the death of him. Only time and God’s plan will reveal just how much this man can endure for the prize of love.
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed reading more about these characters. I liked the basic storyline and it was really interesting that most of the book took place in Iceland. I also enjoy reading about that time period. The whole book I was really rooting for Alex and the Duke. I wanted good things to happen to them and I wanted them to be together. There was a part in the middle that frustrated me and it was hard to understand why that part was in there. I wasn’t too fond of the John character and didn’t quite understand Alex’s relationship with him. But overall I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading he next one. This one will be released in July and the third book will be out in September.
