I don't usually read just for pleasure. Most of the books I read are for our family read alouds, school, or to educate myself. I decided to carve out of few hours of time to read The Forgiven Duke by Jamie Carie. This is the second book in the Forgotten Castle series and it was hard to put down. I could have read the whole book at once if I had enough hours at one time. I really enjoyed the adventures of Alexandria Featherstone and the Duke of St. Easton as they both learn to trust God with their lives.



About the Book:
Tethered by her impulsive promise to marry Lord John Lemon - the path of least resistance - Alexandria Featherstone sets off toward Iceland in search of her parents with a leaden heart. A glimpse of her guardian, the Duke of St. Easton - the path less traveled by - on Dublin’s shore still haunts her.

Will he come after her? Will he drag her back to London, quelling her mission to rescue her treasure-seeking parents, or might he decide to throw caution to the wind and choose Foy Pour Devoir: “Faith for Duty,” the St. Easton motto. The Featherstone motto Valens et Volens: “Willing and Able,” beats in her heart and thrums through her veins. She will find her parents and find their love, no matter the cost.

The powerful yet wing-clipped Duke of St. Easton has never known the challenge that has become his life since hearing his ward’s name. Alexandria Featherstone will be the life or the death of him. Only time and God’s plan will reveal just how much this man can endure for the prize of love.
 Jamie Carie discovered her heart was filled with songs and poetry as her relationship with God grew. She started out by writing lyrics for her brother's band in high school. After getting married & deciding to homeschool she wrote skits, poems, plays and short stories for school and church. Jamie loves to write late at night when the house is quiet and the darkness seems alive. Jamie and her husband have been married for 21 years and live in Indianapolis with their three sons and a giant dog name Leo.

If she could only say one thing to her readers it would be, Live the dreams God has destined you for!”
