The Forgiven Duke: A Forgotten Castles Novel Book 2 By Jamie Carie

I received this e-book from  B & H Publishing Group through NetGalley.com for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this e-book. The opinions expressed here are my own!



Book Description:

 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: 

The Forgiven Duke is the second book of Jamie Carie's series The Forgotten Castles. I had the privilege of reading the first book in this series The Guardian Duke and it was wonderful.  The Forgiven Duke does not disappoint.  The Forgiven Duke starts off right where The Guardian Duke left me hanging.  This story grabbed me from the beginning and held on to me until the end.  Jamie Carie writes with such elegance about Ireland, Iceland, and England that makes you feel like you are right there seeing all of these places right along with the characters.  The characters in The Forgiven Duke are old and new.  The characters are well written and are wonderful. I truly enjoyed Alexandria, The Duke of Easton and Montague. I found myself laughing out loud at parts of the dialogue.  I truly enjoyed this book and if you are a fan of Christian Historical Fiction, I highly recommend this book and this series. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series!
