    really!

    i loved the first book but read this and was shocked. it stunk! alex's choices made me not like her at all and their relationship ended up making you think it was forced. do not read if you like clean christian books with romantic pure relationships.

    THE FORGIVEN DUKE by Jamie Carie is another interesting christia

    THE FORGIVEN DUKE by Jamie Carie is another interesting christian historical romance set in Regency England and Iceland. This is book 2 in “A Forgotten Castles” novel,but can be read as a stand alone,although,I would recommend reading “The Guardian Duke” first in order to get the feel for the characters and their plight. This is a powerful story of faith,trust,a struggle to find one’s parents,and find happiness. While,Alexandria Featherstone continues her search for her parents,Gabrielle,the Duke of Easton,continues his search for her. Enter another character who wishes Lady Alexandria for himself,Lord John Lemon.Gabrielle, must bare unthinkable torture,crudity,and his desire to love Alexandria all while fighting his blindness. Gabrielle finds himself a pawn between Kings,as they search for a missing piece of antiquity.Gabrielle will do whatever it takes to keep Lady Alexandria safe from harm. With secrets,deception,torture,friends,adventure,danger,and a budding romance, readers will not go wrong by reading “The Forgiven Duke”. BE WARNED: AGAIN YOU WILL FIND A CLIFFHANGER. Received for an honest review from Net Galley and the publisher. Details can be found at B&K Books,and My Book Addiction and More.

    RATING:4.5

    The Forgiven Duke was a very enjoyable story. When I began readi

    The Forgiven Duke was a very enjoyable story. When I began reading this book, I soon realized that it was book two in a series. I generally try to start from the beginning when I read a series, but occasionally end up in a situation where I have not read a previous book. The author did a good job of catching me up and I followed along just fine in this story.

    I really felt invested in these characters. Both Alexandria and Gabriel made decisions based on trying to control their situations. This is a very common, human thing to try to do. Much of the book follows Alexandria and the journey she goes on after making a decision based on fear, rather than trusting and waiting for God’s guidance in her life. Her dealings with Lord John, as a result of her impetuous decision, add great tension to Alexandria’s situation. Gabriel also seems inclined to try to control things. I gather that in the first book he did this even more. But, the need to try to take charge of a situation still guides many of his decisions. I felt for him and the challenges he faced.

    Both characters grow a lot in this story. I felt for both of them in the trials they faced and was amazed at all they both had to go through. The middle of the story did drag a bit for me, but after a short while the pace picked up again. The end of the book is not a cliff hanger, but it does leave a few things open that will need to be resolved in book three. I am looking forward to reading it, too.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from B&H Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.

    Yuck

    I really did not like the second book at all.
    Alex was a brat with her bad choices, and leading on John Lemon.
    I hated all that happened to the Duke -- there was too much terrible stuff that i actually skipped ahead. I could not read it.
    I do not understand or believe that the Duke loved Alex after all the deceipt and trouble she caused.
    There was no depth or character development to make any of this remotely believable -- including the constant hard push of evangelization.
    I do not recommend this book or series. Save your money.

    *sigh* This book is even better than The Guardian Duke. There

    *sigh*

    This book is even better than The Guardian Duke.

    There is all the adventure of traveling fearlessly through Iceland on horseback, being kidnapped and incarcerated by the Spanish Inquisition with all the political pomp and circumstance of the early 1800’s. I love the royal fight over the missing manuscript coated thickly with pretentious good manners. I love how Gabriel knows the game and plays along, biding his time for his own ends. And I love how Alex manages obliviously on her goodwill.

    There are too many gorgeous outfits. There's the fur-lined robes and coats for traveling through the cold, dark winter of the far north. Alex’s wardrobe in London is so beautiful, so fun. The setting is all very intricate including the horrible ships and the seasickness that Gabriel survives by chewing on ginger root.

    The author continues flitting through danger and adventure and love like a butterfly, barely dippin’ our delicate toes in grit. Serious subjects, even, are mentioned and endured, tears shed, and then life flits onward with so much hope and forgiveness that I shake my head and laugh.

    Not that I didn’t cry. Last night caught me under my covers reading by low Nook light tears dampening my pillow and making my eyes all puffy this morning. The romantic tension between the characters… between Alex and John and then Alex and Gabriel (in something that could never be called a Love Triangle) is absolutely exquisite. It is butterfly-innocent and so well developed that I didn’t doubt the motives or actions of any of the players. I especially appreciated how Alex’s choices led to costly consequences. Just because she is innocent and well-meaning, doesn’t mean she has a get-out-of-jail free card.

    Alex grows into a woman. I am watching with great concern on the sidelines because she is so alone. Her innocence has endeared her to everyone around her, but it’s also a volcano brewing, ready to cause all kinds of irreparable damage.

    Gabriel changes, too. He grows more accustomed to his “affliction” and is a better person for it, by a lot. Then he suffers more, too… first with his circumstances and then with his own soul. I could have throttled him for being so stubborn. Alex, however, appreciates the same characteristic in him. He still reminds me of Mr. Rochester… like maybe years after the ending of Jane Eyre when the two figured out how to work together and took on challenges together, or something. Does Alex remind me of Jane?! Yes… and no. The two would agree on their morals, at least.

    There is a lot of praying and Scripture in this book, more than in the first. I loved it. The prayers are so close to what I would say. The questions they ask God are so perfect, down to “Why?!”

    I was pulled out of the book when Gabriel repeated a verse to himself in the King James – not that it wasn’t appropriate, but it was hard to pronounce all the “Th’s” even in my head. Lol. There were some phrases that pulled me out, too, as in “the ton”. It's correct for the time period, but uncomfortable to read very often.

    As for the pace, it started slowly for me, as the two were drawn apart impossibly far and then further, yet. The adventures just hopped from one to another in a happy, endless sort of way that made me feel sleepy. Lol. That was before the tension kicked in and I couldn’t put it down!

    My Rating: 4 - Good book!! I cannot wait to read the third in this trilogy coming out in the fall. I am completely absorbed in Gabriel & Alex's life!!
