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 Guardian Duke Forgotten PDF #8608 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 I really am starting to think I should delete all fluff books that have been on my to read list for longer than five years I build up so much expectation for them and they universally disappoint I mean I've been searching for this book for 8 years High expectations are bound to emerge and then be disappointed And The Guardian Duke wasn't terrible There were sparks of fun with the characters Despite checking all the Christian romance boxes it seemed to implicitly contain some elements of magic or even magical realism that set it apart It is not very historically accurate so I guess it makes it easier if you read it through the lens of some magical disorientation But I did not understand the romance at all The main couple falls deeply in love on very little grounds I don't even know if it can count as insta love since they don't see each other Their subseuent interaction and deep understanding of the other's character puzzled me It did not make a lot of sense Of course Alex's character in general puzzled me It certainly put her in a uniue setting but for Regency And the Duke pulls out that irritating 'she's not like other girls' line which always makes me skeptical Final nail in the coffin was the cliff hanger ending which turned my general 'wut' into 'no seriously what' Probably won't intentionally seek the seuel but if you want to read this one be advised and keep the seuel within reach

The Guardian Duke Forgotten Castles #1Of Ireland but is always one step behindWhen they do meet the search for earthly treasure will pale in comparison to what God has planned for both of themEndorsementsGet 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 uest With rich characterization and an intriguing plot Jamie Carie I have the Kindle app on my iPhone But you see my iPhone’s screen is uite small so therefore I don’t generally look forward to reading any of the 100 books I’ve downloaded mostly for free Well that was until I figured out NetGalleyearlier this week and downloaded The Guardian Duke the first book in Jamie Carie’s The Forgotten Castles series I signed up to review up and coming books for NetGalley back in March But because of my utter lack of knowledge pertaining to GETTING their ebooks onto my Kindle app it’s taken nine months for me to actually read one And boy did I read it On my iPhoneJamie Carie is one of those authors who have a style all her own no matter what specific genre she might dive into next If I remember correctly all of her books generally go from one distinct time in history to the next With this particular book I was excited to see the word “duke” in the title The first book I ever read by Jamie Carie was The Duchess and The Dragon—which was also about a Duke in the Regency Era but was set for the most part in Colonial America amidst a uaker communityAnyway I read The Guardian Duke in a matter of days as I said on my iPhone I literally could not put it down When I had to I made sure I turned my phone off with the next page I needed to read ready to go The Guardian Duke wasn’t uite written like any book I’ve ever read Every other chapter detailed the life of the Duke St EastonGabriel Ravenwood of London and Lady Alexandria Featherstone of Holy Island and how their lives were “just about” to intersect I kept thinking these two HAVE to meet SOON And yet they didn’t except through their letters to one another Well they did meet And it was awesome Just as I would have planned out myself only I’d not gone so far to think of the ball as a masuerade The Guardian Duke in general actually reminded me very much of one of my favorite authors and master of the Recency Era time period Georgette Heyer And if anyone can write a Regency that comes anywhere near being like Georgette Heyer—you know that author has talent One of the things that I don’t like about ebooks is that I have no real idea of how far I am in a book I knew Jamie Carie had written this book as the first in a series of three—but I didn’t realize that all three books were about the same Lady and Duke Until I got to the last page on my Kindle download and I kept trying to turn the page without any luck There HAD TO BE MOREMy mom was sitting next to me and I could tell she thought something was terribly amiss People just don’t usually frantically keep poking their iPhone saying “No That can’t be all there is”Well I do and I did And five seconds later I breathed a sigh of relief when I realized I’d also downloaded Jamie Carie’s second book in The Forgotten Castle’s series The Forgiven Duke from NetGalley And to my immense delight it started right up where the first left off Now all I have to do is read all the way through it in expectation that I will still have to read the third book in the series A Duke’s Promise before I can see this AMAZING couple happily together All three books in The Forgotten Castles series will be published in 2012 And NetGalley BETTER supply me with A Duke’s Promise soon or I might have to write my own Regency just to get my fix I loved this book for so many reasons I think the main reason is that I just plain LOVE the way Jamie Carie is able to write a story Her characters are deep and they stick with you even years after reading of them As I said before NetGalley with permission from BH Publishing Group supplied me with an electronic version of this book as an Advanced Reader’s Edition which means it was an uncorrected proof and not the final interior of the novel in return for my honest opinion of the book I wholeheartedly give The Guardian Duke 5 stars
