The Forgiven Duke Review & Giveaway


Remember my review of The Guardian Duke?  Well, I am excited to tell you about the next book in the series, The Forgiven Duke.

About The Book:  The Forgiven Duke
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 her 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.

As with the first book in the series, The Guardian Duke, I really enjoyed this book!  The Forgiven Duke picks up right where we left Alex and Gabriel.  I was excited to get back to the story and see how unfolds.  Alexandria and her "Duke" have only glimpsed each other, yet their feelings run strong from the letters they have communicated back and forth.  I love the idea of falling in love over letters.  I remember when David and I were in college and one summer we were in different cities.  I cannot tell you how much I treasured his letters to me.  I truly love the way that Carrie creates and sustains their romance.

Alexandria's first goal is to find her parents at whatever the cost may be, she just cannot bring herself to think that they are dead.  And that is how Alex finds herself engaged to Lord John Lemon.  I love the twists and turns that Carrie weaves into this book.  I hesitate to say too much because I am not one for "spoiling" books.  Carrie's character development continues to amaze me as I care for many of them and not so much for a few!  I cannot wait to finish the series out...
