Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

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.

Endorsements:

"Get lost in Ireland in this rollicking adventure with a brave, headstrong heroine and a relentless yet honorable duke determined to save her from a dangerous quest. With rich characterization and an intriguing plot, Jamie Carie's The Guardian Duke will leave you breathless for the next installment!"

-- Susan May Warren, best-selling author of Baroness

    I had forgotten just how much I LOVED historical romances until I picked up The Guardian Duke and started reading.

    And all I can say is WOW!

    What an amazing story - filled with unpredictable and wonderfully frustrating characters!

    We get to follow along as our delightful Lady Alexandria embarks on a dangerous mission that many call foolish and the Duke of Easton is forced to follow.

    It is exceptionally refreshing to read a wonderful story full of misadventure and chaos with none of the typical nonsense you read in mainstream historical fiction.

    Instead of lusty encounters, adventure and faith take center stage and the result is much more satisfying and highly entertaining.

    This novel does not need any such nonsense to hold the readers attention. The exceptionally written plot carries them along just fine.

    In fact, before you know it, you've come to the end and you find yourself desperate to rush to the next book.

    Fortunately_ all three books are out now so you can read them in sequence. Which is where I am bound right now - book 2: The Forgiven Duke.

    THANK YOU to B&H Publishing for providing this book free to me in exchange for my honest review!

    I've never before read anything by Jamie Carie, although I am familiar with her name and books due to my frequency here on Christianbook.com. I saw that this one got high ratings (plus I like the cover), so when I saw it was available on Netgalley, I decided to try it.

    I think the strength of this book is that it wasn't "typical." There were a lot of little quirks and things that kept the story fresh and original. All the same, there were a few things that just didn't "work" for me. First of all, though I really enjoyed all of the letters between Alexandra and Gabriel, I didn't get why she kept trying to elude him. He was on her side, after all!

    My favorite character was definitely Montague, although I liked Baylor also. Though the storyline is definitely unusual, if you know coming into this book that it's more of an adventure story that a formal Regency, you'll probably enjoy it.

    I'm happy to say, the book didn't really have any objectionable content that I can remember. (However, I had read reviews of the second and third books, and so apparently there is some objectionable stuff in there, which is sad because this book ends on a cliffhanger_so you're probably going to want to read the next books.)

    Rating: 8

    I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

    After the King ordered Gabriel, the Duke of St. Easton to be the guardian for Lady Alexandria Featherstone whose parents are missing. Alexandria, who practically raised herself, does not feel the need for a guardian at this point. Alexandria wants to find and save her parents, and she assumes that the Duke is a stuffy old man who will put a stop to her desires. Immediately, Alexandria begins her plans to find her parents while keeping away from Gabriel and walking right into danger.

    The Guardian Duke starts this series off on the right foot. Carie weaves an interesting romantic mystery as the main characters deal with personal problems and attempt to strengthen their relationships with the Lord. Carie describes the scenery beautifully, building visual pictures of the travels. This is a great read for historical romantic mystery readers of all ages.

    Interesting picture of the time, a little dreaming and unrealistic when it comes to the persons, but it kept my attention to the end - which was frustrating, as it has to continue . . .
