Loraine4 Stars Out Of 5Good story but has a cliffhanger.January 4, 2017LoraineQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Ahhh! A Cliffhanger! I am torn between loving this story and hating it because of that. I highly recommend that you have the second book in this series available to you so that you can see what happens. Full review at my website.
Miranda3 Stars Out Of 5Not a stand alone book, finishes with a cliff hanger.March 25, 2016MirandaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I started off really enjoying the book and then felt it went on and on, so skimmed sections. I was completely annoyed by the ending. I enjoy stand alone series, in that I can read one book and it doesn't make me feel compelled to buy the rest in the series to find out how it all ends.
Alexandria started off as a fun girl with a naive, innocent but fun sense of humour, yet despite her faith in God, seemed to do more lying than acting out her faith.
I know many more people loved this book than me, and I am glad for them. But I've read better and won't be reading the next ones.
ASC Book ReviewsNMAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!November 14, 2014ASC Book ReviewsNMAge: 18-24Gender: femaleI had always wanted to read this series but when I found it I was just at the beginning of starting my reviewing blog and Jamie was in the middle of the series. I am SO glad I waited to start with one when two and three are out because I can hardly wait for the next one!!!!! Definitely love how Jamie wrote the cliff hanger ending, but at the same time I can't stand cliff hanger endings LOL! From the lovely Holy Island, to the enchanting and beautiful Ireland I LOVED the journey and adventures that these characters go through. I thought is has feelings of Princess Bride but even more FUN and I LOVE this more because of the Christian base throughout!!! I LOVE these characters (yes I know I'm using the word LOVE a lot LOL! but bare with me...) They are excellently crafted and in just a short time they have become some of my all time favorites! Alexandria is an awesome character that is quirky and brave. I can see where she has some growing to do and I can't wait to read all about it, following her through her adventures that shape her into the woman God wants her to be. I LOVE the way Jamie describes Gabriel!!! I can just see him as clearly as if he stood right in front of me! The struggles he goes through are a very interesting addition to the story that I wasn't expecting and as his character is revealed I love him more and more! :) Along the way more characters crop up to help or hinder the journey in one way or another and I love the majority of them especially the sub characters and their stories! With Jamie's humor woven into the suspense and excitement I actually devoured this book and I can't wait for more!!! Where are Alex's parents? What exactly is it they're searching for? And will Alex find them in time or will it be too late!? Questions that I can't wait to get the answers to! I highly recommend The Guardian Duke but be prepared to get hooked!

JCMorrowsAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Strong female lead - YES! And a great adventure!June 19, 2014JCMorrowsAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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!
