The Forgiven Duke

If you haven't read The Guardian Duke you might not want to read this review quite yet, there might be a few spoilers of that book!

When we last left our heroine in The Guardian Duke, she's setting sail for Iceland with her new fiance John Lemon. As they pull away from the harbor, Alex's gaze locks with one she knows to be her Guardian Duke and she knows at that moment that she's meant to love only him. This book opens right where that one leave off in the Irish harbor and the Duke, Gabriel, has just felt the same connection that Alex felt. He knows that he's to marry her, but now he has to find a way to get to her in Iceland and convince her of that fact. He has no way of knowing of her change of heart about her fiance, but he's still willing to go and give it a try, even with his deafness that Alex knows nothing about. But the road will be long and hard for him to get to Iceland with multiple detours and long days aboard a ship fighting seasickness. Things are not easy for Alex either, John is pressuring her to get married right away, as if he can sense her change of heart. She knows that she must find her parents and fast, but obstacles seem to get in the way constantly. Will Alex and Gabriel ever get on the same page and the same continent long enough to find out how the other feels?

I've really enjoyed reading this series so far. The characters are complex and the plot moves along really quickly. I didn't want to put this book down, because the characters were constantly in peril and I wanted to know what happened to them! I loved how the book ended and I can't wait to read the third one, hopefully soon! Read these ones in order or they will make no sense at all.

Content: This one is pretty clean, although there is one scene where the fiance tries to pressure her into marrying him by spending the night in her bed naked with her drugged.

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.
