The Forgiven Duke - Giveaway and Review

Jamie Carie has written a beautiful new series of novels that fall into her Forgotten Castle's series. The Forgiven Duke follows on the heels of it's predecessor The Guardian Duke, and picks up the story of Lady Alexandria Featherstone who is in search of her parents, treasure hunters who went missing. While its been a year, everyone else has now assumed they are dead but Alexandria isn't so sure and wants to go searching in their last known location in Iceland, at a place known as the Black Castles.

Yet just as she is about to disembark on her ocean voyage with Lord John Lemon, a man she believes she may love and has promised to marry once they arrive in Iceland, she doesn't escape unnoticed. Her guardian, the Duke of St. Easton has managed to see that she left on the ship, Archilles, and will stop at nothing to bring her back. He has a secret he is trying to hide and that is his hearing loss. Unfortunately he's about to have his journey cut short when he's taken back to London and Alex remains an ocean voyage away.

Will these two ever find true happiness despite living their lives for others sake or will God have a greater purpose in mind for them if they are willing to be honest and wait for one another?

I received The Forgiven Duke by Jamie Carie compliments of Propeller and B & H Books for my honest review. This is such a charming novel that keeps it leading lady, strong and willing to pursue what she believes is right no matter what anyone thinks and is struggling to decide just what her heart really wants. Will it be Lord John Lemon or the Duke of St. Easton? Will she fall in love to save a man who appears to be broke or will she fall in love to save a man who has fallen in love with her but can't admit it? I rate this novel a 5 out of 5 stars and is a must read if you love a little action with your romance!
