I received this e-book from B & H Publishing Group through Netgalley.com for no charge for my honest opinion of this e-book.
The Guardian Duke is award-winning novelist Jamie Carie's most exciting story yet, a uniquely arranged Regency-era romantic adventure where hero and heroine know each other through written letters but have yet to meet.
Gabriel,the Duke of St. Easton, is ordered by the King to take guardianship over Lady Alexandria Featherstone whose parents are presumed dead after failing to return from a high profile treasure hunt. But Alexandria ignores this royal reassignment, believing her parents are still alive and duly following clues that may lead to their whereabouts. Gabriel, pressured by what are actually the King's ulterior motives, pursues her across windswept England and the rolling green hills of Ireland but is always one step behind.
When they do meet, the search for earthly treasure will pale in comparison to what God has planned for both of them.
The Guardian Duke is the first book by Jamie Carie I have read and it is an awesome book. The historical information and background is very well researched and the descriptions of the time, people, and circumstances are vivid and easy to picture. This book truly grabbed from the beginning and ended not how I expected. I am very glad to know this is a series! This story has mystery, romance, faith, and loyalty. The characters in this story are easy to picture and to relate to. As I read, I could picture all of it going on like I was there watching it unfold. The main characters of this story, Gabriel Duke of St Easton and Lady Alexandria Featherstone have only corresponded through letters yet they fall in love with each other without seeing one another. A beautiful love story that shows how God works in all things, including matters of the heart. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series to find out what happens next. Jamie Carie is a very talented writer, that I am glad I had the opportunity to read. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Fiction. Definitely a good read.
