Don’t you just love the moments when you can curl up and settle in with a book? It was how I spent one weekend recently, reading The Guardian Duke. Set in London during August of 1818, it’s a historical novel that combines action, suspense and romance as the reader follows the search for lady Featherstones’ parents and the Duke’s pursuit!
While, I have to admit, it was detail rich in the beginning, making it a little rough to get into, as the story unfolded it all came together. The details throughout the book will have you feeling as if you are a part of the book, visiting Alexandria’s castle, hearing the waves slapping against the rocky shore and the landscape that pulls you into the story.
The characters were rich in emotion from having faith that parents were alive to frustration on news of loss. There’s tension and suspense. All very believable.
It took me two and a half days to finish this book and it ended with such an incredible cliff hanger than I am anxious for the sequel, The Forgiven Duke, set to release this July.
About the 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 Got has planned for them both.
