I know I'm not supposed to start a sentence with "finally," but... Finally, I got around to reading A Duke's Promise by Jamie Carie, and I loved it. The is the last of A Forgotten Castle Series and the best. 

The Duke and Duchess of St. Easton, Gabriel and Alexandria Ravenwood (they married in the last book) begin their search again for her parents, Ian and Katherine Featherstone, under the guise of a honeymoon in France. Of course they don't stay in France, but take a hot air balloon across the alps. 

This was a wonderful story and I give it 5 stars. I loved it and I am now a fan of Jamie Carie. There is so much excitement and intrigue in this story. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Award-winning writer Jamie Caries concludes her most epic storyline with a wonderful twist in A Duke’s Promise, the final Forgotten Castles novel.

From the Land of Fire and Ice back to England’s shores, Alexandria Featherstone finds herself the new Duchess of St. Easton. Her husband has promised a wedding trip to take them to the place where her imperiled parents were last seen -- Italy and the marble caves of Carrara -- but a powerful Italian duke plots against Alex and her treasure-hunting parents.

Hoping to save them, Alex and Gabriel travel to Italy by balloon. Fraught with danger on all sides and pressured by Gabriel’s affliction to the breaking point, they must learn to work and fight together. The mysterious key is within their grasp, but they have yet to recognize it. This journey will require steadfast faith in God and each other -- a risk that will win them everything they want or lose them everything they have.


  1. Katt would be interested in how your son in law gets along after the lung surg, my husband had it end of May and still finds himself feeling so week, I read blog by Sandi Rog about meds for cancer treatment B17, so he is starting to take this hoping his cancer doesnt return. I read that book of Jillian you spoke of and enjoyed it as I do most of her books.
    take care

  2. Thanks Paula for asking about Ron.He is doing as well as can be expected. He's still in the hospital, and the draining is still too much for him to go home. He's not a happy camper. He works for the Boy Scouts, so he's anxious to get back to the mountain and to the camp he's building.
    I am also taking the B17. Although I don't have cancer, it has helped my colon and believe it or not, my knees. I've been on it almost a week and I can feel so much difference. I started out on 100 mg, and it's time for me to move up to 200. I can tell I need the extra dosage. From what I read, it will prevent cancer. Did you talk to her about other drugs to take with it? Since on the B17, I have more energy than I have had in years. I feel wonderful! It's hard to believe it could make this much difference. I pray it helps your husband.
