B&H Books The Forgiven Duke, Forgotten Castles Series #2, Large Print

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," bea ts 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.

Jamie Carie in her new book, “A Duke’s Promise” Book Three in the Forgotten Castles series published by B&H Publishing Group takes us back to Medieval England in 1819.
From the back cover: From the Land of Fire and Ice back to England’s shores, Alexandria Featherstone finds herself the new Duchess of St. Easton. Her husband has promised a wedding trip to take them to the place where her imperiled parents were last seen — Italy and the marble caves of Carrara.
But a powerful Italian duke plots against Alex and her treasure-hunting parents.
Hoping to save them, Alex and Gabriel travel to Italy by balloon. Fraught with danger on all sides and pressured by Gabriel’s affliction to the breaking point, they must learn to work and fight together. The mysterious key is within their grasp, but they have yet to recognize it. This journey will require steadfast faith in God and each other.
It’s a risk that will lead them to win them everything they want or lose everything they have.
While it is possible to read this book first and Ms. Carie does an excellent job of getting you up to speed I really recommend reading the preceding books of this series, “The Guardian Duke” and “The Forgiven Duke”, first as there is quite a lot of story you will be missing. The quest is on and this time both Alexandria and Gabriel are hunting for her missing parents. In addition they are searching for a manuscript with instructions for a weapon to rule the world. There is a very powerful villain that wants to stop them permanently and acquire this manuscript for himself. A hot air balloon journey, and marble caves, this is the stuff of high adventure. ”A Duke’s Promise” is a thriller in that both Alexandria and Gabriel’s lives are in deadly danger practically from the first page. This book is a wonderful adventure filled with great characters that we have come to love and root for. I am sorry to see this series end but look forward to more from the pen of Jamie Carie.
