The Forgiven Duke by Jamie Carie Review & Giveaway 4/28

Last month I read and reviewed The Guardian Duke by Jamie Carie and I could not wait for the sequel. Luckily, I didn't have to wait for long! I just had the pleasure of reading The Forgiven Duke, and I couldn't put it down. After the kids went to bed, I started reading and didn't stop until I was finished. I enjoyed reading the first book in the Forgotten Castle series, but I really loved this book. Parts of it had me on pins and needles and the unexpected twists and turns kept me off my seat. 

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."

If you love to read historical Christian fiction, I highly recommend this series. Jamie Carie writes in such a way that you almost feel like you are there experiencing each trial and tribulation yourself as well as the triumphs. I am impatiently awaiting the third and final book in the series. What can I say? Patience has never been one of my virtues. ;)

The Forgiven Duke is set for release July 2012 but can be pre-ordered on Amazon. The final Forgotten Castle novel, A Duke's Promise is set for release in September 2012.

I like romances, and this would be a good change from the serial killer books I've been reading!
