And all I can say is WOW!
What an amazing story – filled with unpredictable and wonderfully frustrating characters!
We get to follow along as our delightful Lady Alexandria embarks on a dangerous mission that many call foolish and the Duke of Easton is forced to follow.
It is exceptionally refreshing to read a wonderful story full of misadventure and chaos with none of the typical nonsense you read in mainstream historical fiction.
Instead of lusty encounters, adventure and faith take center stage and the result is much more satisfying and highly entertaining.
This novel does not need any such nonsense to hold the readers attention. The exceptionally written plot carries them along just fine.
In fact, before you know it, you’ve come to the end and you find yourself desperate to rush to the next book.
Fortunately… all three books are out now so you can read them in sequence. Which is where I am bound right now – book 2: The Forgiven Duke.
Here is what B&H says about The Guardian Duke:
The Guardian Duke is award-winning novelist Jamie Carie’s most exciting story yet, a uniquely arranged Regency-era romantic adventure where hero and heroine know each other through written letters but have yet to meet.
Gabriel, the Duke of St. Easton, is ordered by the King to take guardianship over Lady Alexandria Featherstone whose parents are presumed dead after failing to return from a high profile treasure hunt. But Alexandria ignores this royal reassignment, believing her parents are still alive and duly following clues that may lead to their whereabouts. Gabriel, pressured by what are actually the King’s ulterior motives, pursues her across windswept England and the rolling green hills of Ireland but is always one step behind.
When they do meet, the search for earthly treasure will pale in comparison to what God has planned for both of them.
