Review and Giveaway: The Forgiven Duke

Giveaway is now closed.

Hello friends, do I have something nice in store for you today! Forgive me if I’m wrong, but I think this is the very first time we’ve had a book giveaway here on our blog.

I received the second book in The Forgotten Castle Series by Jamie Carie titled The Forgiven Duke last week. This second installment in the Regency-era romantic adventure releases this July 2012.

If you check out my to-read list, this doesn’t fall into any category of books that I usually read. I was surprised that I did like it, and am a little bummed that I didn’t read the first book in the series first. You can read my review of THE FORGIVEN DUKE over at our review blog. (Psst, scroll down for GIVEAWAY info!)

About the Author:
When she was six, Jamie’s parents met Jesus and soon after started a church. It changed everything. 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. Her book Snow Angel 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. I love reading and often don’t have too much time to do so. But I’ve found that I can read even a few pages at time. I haven’t read any Christian romance books lately. I think I’ll find out if this book is at my local library or not.
