                Jamie Carie has written another winner!  A Duke’s Promise is the last novel in the “Forgotten Castles” series.  This book continues the adventures (and romance) of Alexandria Featherstone.  The descriptions of the scenery make you feel like you’re there seeing what the author is describing.  Great character details and emotions are included in the story.  Jamie has truly been blessed by God with a gift for storytelling.
                This story begins with Alexandria marrying the love of her life, Gabriel Ravenwood, the Duke of St.  Easton.  She now finds herself a duchess when only a few months ago she was herding sheep!  As part of their honeymoon trip, they are going to sneak away from the king’s soldiers to try and find Alexandria’s parents.  Her parents have been on the trail of clues trying to discover an elusive manuscript said to give detailed instructions and drawings of a weapon to rule the world.  At least three kings of differing countries searching for the manuscript and will do anything to get it.  The Featherstones are on the verge of discovering the manuscript when they go missing.  Alexandria vows to find them no matter what.  She begins her journey with clues her parents have left behind for her to find.  Where will the clues take her this time?  Who is holding her parents captive?  Can she find her parents before it’s too late?
                Gabriel is thrilled to have Alexandria as his wife.  He’s not so thrilled with all the risks she takes!  His hearing difficulties come and go, but he is learning to trust God to take each moment as it comes and count it as a blessing.  He promises his wife that they will find her parents at all costs.  But what is the true cost?  Will he lose his beloved wife after just finding her?  Does he love her more than God?
Through various fights, travels, arguments, and discussions, both Alexandria and Gabriel learn the precious truth that God loves them beyond measure, that they are never alone as He is always with them, and they need not lean on their own understanding, but on Him.  Be sure to get the other two books in the series, The Guardian Duke and The Forgiven Duke.   I’m already looking forward to Jamie’s next book, and after reading this one, I’m sure you will be too!
My rating is 4 stars.
