The Guardian Duke-a book review and giveaway

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.

I saw a QR code on the back of the book so I scanned it with my iPhone and this trailer is what popped up!  I hope you are as surprised as I was, every book needs a trailer in my own opinion.

My Opinion

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.  It was an interesting book but it had several slow chapters at the beginning and I had to force myself to keep reading, to be honest if I hadn't seen the great trailer I may not have finished it.  Once I got about half way through the book it got very exciting and I was able to stay engrossed in the action.  I loved Carie's historical facts, descriptive words and all of the passion and adventure that was in The Guardian Duke and I love that she ties it in with a plan that God has for the main characters.  I'm looking forward to The Forgotten Castle series now that I've read The Guardian Duke which ends in a cliffhanger, I can't wait to read her next book The Forgiven Duke and which is coming out this summer!
