The Forgiven Duke by Jamie Carie

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.

My Thoughts

The way book one in this series, The Guardian Duke, ended made me want to immediately start this one. I was not disappointed. I loved the fact that this book was set mostly in Iceland which is an uncommonly used country. This author has a knack for the interesting and unexpected as well as an ability to keep her main characters apart for ages. Gabriel and Alex were once again rarely in the same place, except toward the end. And while this had to happen for the plot to work, it's kinda annoying not to be able to watch the hero and heroine interact. The fact that Gabriel's hearing still fluctuated added layers to the story and really helped give a good look at his emotions. All in all it was another great story from Jamie Carie that left me anxious to read book three, A Duke's Promise
