You may remember a while ago I got to read and review the book, The Guardian Duke. (Gina of Chic Homeschool Mama was the winner of that giveaway, in case you were wondering.) I loved it so much and couldn't wait to read the next book in the series, The Forgiven Duke. Well, I got to read it sooner than I thought I would and I was so excited!
The second book in this series picks up right where The Guardian Duke left off. However, if you hadn't read the first book, I think you would still be able to follow along as the author gives glimpses throughout the book of how the characters got to this point.
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.
This book, like the first, kept me turning the pages. I wasn't able to read it in two days like I did the first book :), but I looked forward each day to picking it up and reading more. Keira read the first book also and is chomping at the bit to read this one.
Jamie Carie has a wonderful writing style, and I've enjoyed these two books of hers so much that I'm just started reading another book of hers, Snow Angel, with plans to read more soon.
And I really look forward to reading the final book in the series, A Duke's Promise. Hopefully soon! :)
I highly recommend reading this book! In fact, if you'd like to win a copy of the book (an advanced reader copy), leave a comment telling me what good book you've read lately. A winner will be chosen randomly on Sunday, April 22.
