The Forgotten Duke Book Review

In March I read The Guardian Duke. While it was slow getting into, it was a good read. Good enough to read the second book in the series, The Forgiven Duke, by Jamie Carie.

The Forgotten Duke Book Review

With characters established, The Forgiven Duke, was captivating from the beginning, picking up where The Guardian Duke left off! It was like catching up with old friends, Lady Alexandria Featherstone, whose parents have been missing and are presumed dead for over a year. Alexandria still clings to hope that her parents are alive and forgoes the trip to London to be with Gabriel Ravenwood, her Guardian Duke, so that she can find her parents.

Lord Lemon assists her. After all, in spite of the Guardian Duke loving her and promising to marry and take care of Alexandria, she has promised herself to Lord John Lemon. Her detective spirit comes out in her as she travels to Iceland in the search for her parents.

Carie’s writing continues to impress with a story line filled with suspense, twists and more. I have never been one to kick back with a romance novel, but Carie captivates and made it an enjoyable experience.

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.
