The Guardian Duke review & giveaway!



When Lady Alexandria Featherstone's parents go missing while on a high-profile treasure hunt, the King declares them dead.  He then orders Gabriel, the Duke of St. Easton, to take guardianship over Lady Alexandria to keep her safe from those who possibly harmed her parents and may be seeking the same treasure with the intent to harm her!  Alex is unhappy with being assigned a guardian and she adamantly believes her parents are still alive.  She sets out across faraway lands following clues left behind by her parents in her attempt to find them.  Gabriel, sworn by duty, pursues her across England and Ireland trying to protect his ward from harm.  As they come to know one another they begin to understand that the treasures they are searching for are nothing compared to the treasure they find in each other.

The Guardian Duke is a continuation of the Forgotten Castles novels by Jamie Carie that will take you on a treasure seeking adventure!
About the Author:
When she was six, Jamie’s parents met Jesus and soon after started a church. It changed everything. Road trips with her dad—to and from Bible studies across Indiana—were filled with talks of things beyond earth’s bounds – creation and the fall, God and Jesus and the rapture, the earthly walk compared to the spiritual walk, and how we are born for more than what we can see or touch.
The highlight of those nights was stopping at a truck stop in the middle of the night where her dad would spend a little of the offering basket on two slices of pie and a couple of Cokes. Nothing ever felt so special as a middle of the night slice of pie with her dad. And nothing could stop the writing pouring out of her.
As Jamie’s relationship with God grew, she discovered her heart was filled with songs and poetry. During high school she wrote lyrics for her brother’s band. (And she sang them too!) After college, Jamie married, had two sons and decided to stay home with them. While she homeschooled she wrote skits, poems, plays and short stories for school and church.
When her eldest son turned five she dove into the world of novels. She’d read romance novels for years, but couldn’t relate to the flawless, saintly heroines in Christian romance novels. So she decided to write her own.
Snow Angel was born on a frosty night in an old farmhouse in Fishers, Indiana, where the cold floor gave plenty of motivation for the snow scene. Jamie loves to write late at night when the house is quiet and the darkness seems alive. Elizabeth and Noah had been playacting in herhead for a long time, so the story went fast.

Ten years later Snow Angel was published and won the ForeWord magazine Romance Book of the Year winner, was a National “Best Books 2007” Awards winner, and a 2008 RITA Awards® Best First Book finalist. It was the beginning of her dream career.
Jamie and her husband Tony have been married for twenty-one years and live in Indianapolis with their three sons and a giant of a dog named Leo.
If she could only say one thing to her readers it would be, “Live the dreams God has destined you for!”

  2. Historical novels really are my favorite genre - especially if they are set anywhere in Europe before 1900. I also love historical setting mysteries.
