If I was anxious for the sequel after I posted my review of The Guardian Duke by Jamie Carie, I am doubly anxious now for the final volume in this series. The Forgiven Duke is a wonderful book by one of my newest favorite authors. I am captivated by the chase, the symbolism, the mystery, the time period. Basically, everything about this book reels me in. I did not want to put it down. I had to pull rank on my daughter in order to read it first, since we were both so taken with the first book.
My Bottom Line: I’m not sure how much to say about this book, as I do not want to make this a spoiler post. I really, really love this author and series. I think if you enjoy Christian fiction, you are going to enjoy these books.
What the Publisher Says: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.
