Can you fall in love with someone before you’ve even met? Can you sense that someone is “the one” before you’ve spent time with them? Author Jamie Carie would most likely answer these questions affirmatively as her character, Gabriel, the Duke of St. Easton, decides he has found the woman of his dreams in the new book, The Guardian Duke. Gabriel gets to know Lady Alexandria Featherstone through her letters and the people who know her, but his efforts to find his new ward, who has taken off to track down her missing parents, don’t result in a fateful meeting -- at least not in The Guardian Duke! You’ll have to wait for the next book in this series, The Forgiven Duke, before Gabriel and Alex meet face-to-face (or, at least, I assume they do!).
But in the meantime, you can enjoy their separate journeys as Gabriel copes with a sudden and mysterious deafness, along with the news that he is now responsible for a wayward young woman. As he attempts to track her down, all while hampered by his loss of hearing, Alex uncovers clues to her parents’ whereabouts and acquires devoted friends (and a few enemies) along the way. Their separate journeys take them from England to Ireland, where they find plenty of adventure, getting ever closer to solving the mystery of Alex’s missing parents and, ultimately, meeting face-to-face.
The Guardian Duke, by Jamie Carie, is the first of three books in The Forgotten Castle series by the award-winning writer, Jamie Carie. Watch the trailer below for more about this book!
