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.

My thoughts about Jamie Carie's 2nd book in the 'Forgotten Castles' series:

'The Guardian Duke' by Romance Novelist Jamie Carie was a treat and once again this latest adventure of Alexandra Featherstone and her guardian Duke appeals to our romantic side giving us a delightful opportunity to escape from the doldrums of life. 
By now,  you guessed it, Jamie Carie has many followers! Dreamers, all of us!

Jamie Carie's vivid imagination had led her to create interesting plots full of lively and colourful situations which leaves you... just wanting a little more! It matters little that this novel ends with (unanswered) questions to be pursued in the next installment, this time called 'A Duke's Promise'! 
All will be revealed in due course!
The Forgiven Duke is a warm lighthearted tale with many endearing characters, locals that will fire your own imagination and a plot with all the right ingredients: love, hope, faith aplenty, intrigue and the unsavoury side of the great powers who ruled the high seas and our world in the Nineteenth Century!
Finally it is a story to enjoy just knowing our fair protagonists are in God's hands and in this case His plan reveals how much a man such as Gabriel will do when in love!
As for Alex, you will feel wishing to have her determination in her quest despite the many pitfalls she encounters!

'The Forgiven Duke' is Book 2 of 'A Forgotten Castles' series and the sequel to 'The Guardian Duke'.
