The Guardian Duke Review

Jamie Carie wrote The Guardian Duke, a lovely novel I just completed. This "Regency-era romantic adventure" is an enjoyable journey with Lady Alexandria Featherstone and Gabriel, the Duke of St. Easton.

Lady Alex's parents, famed sleuths, have been presumed dead since they have not contacted anyone in a year. They had been on an adventure of their own, trying to solve a mystery. The regent has urged Gabriel to go get Alex and bring her to London since she is Gabriel's guardian now, however, Alex has started on her own adventure - one to find her parents and prove they are alive.

Through letters between Alex and Gabriel, he falls in love with her and wants to protect her. She, not wanting to stall, continues on her path for clues to find her parents. Unfortunately, time is of the essence and she must find them. She will not stay put long enough for Gabriel to come to her.

This book begins in London, 1818. The author's words describing the landscape across England and Ireland make the scenes come alive. She did a great job stretching out this story and it is well worth reading. I can hardly wait until the second book in this series comes out and I can continue reading this exciting story.

This book would make an excellent movie! To see the book trailer, click here. To visit their facbeook page, click here.

I received this book for free from Propeller in exchange for my honest opinion. No other compensation was received or expected.
