Several weeks ago I told you about The Guardian Duke, a fun historical romance that I had the opportunity to read. Well, this month, I got an advance copy of The Forgiven Duke. I gotta tell you, these are really fun books. I can't wait for the third in the series. Please keep in mind that I am not a very deep reader. I like to be entertained and enveloped by a book and The Forgiven Duke did just that. I would recommend that you read the first book before reading this one. You get more attached to the characters that way.
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.
