“The Guardian Duke” by Jamie Carie, book review
Alexandria has been holding down the fort or castle as it were since her parents left on their latest job almost a year ago. While it is not uncommon for them to be gone for several months, this is the longest, and she is beginning to become a bit worried. Then a summons to come to London and be cared for by her appointed “guardian” the Duke of St Easton, and she is worried. Before she can be drug to London, she sets out to find her parents.
Gabriel, the Duke of St Easton, has always loved knowledge and learning. He studied all subjects but has a true love for music. After attempts to become a musician failed, he has learned to love attending the opera and other concerts. But when a freak accident or illness takes his hearing, he is thrown into a silent world he cannot escape.
Alexandria and Gabriel find themselves at odds with each other, trying to accomplish a quest, but working against each other. Can they find a way to work together?
I enjoyed this book. The characters are developed really well and as the reader I was able to understand their troubles and hope for a quick and peaceful solution. I am eager to read the second book in this series.
