Book Description: Tethered by her impulsive promise to marry Lord John Lemon - the path of least resistance - Alexandria Featherstone sets off toward Iceland in search of her parents with a leaden heart. A glimpse of her guardian, the Duke of St. Easton - the path less traveled by - on Dublin’s shore still haunts her.

Will he come after her? Will he drag her back to London, quelling her mission to rescue her treasure-seeking parents, or might he decide to throw caution to the wind and choose Foy Pour Devoir: “Faith for Duty,” the St. Easton motto. The Featherstone motto Valens et Volens: “Willing and Able,” beats in her heart and thrums through her veins. She will find her parents and find their love, no matter the cost.

The powerful yet wing-clipped Duke of St. Easton has never known the challenge that has become his life since hearing his ward’s name. Alexandria Featherstone will be the life or the death of him. Only time and God’s plan will reveal just how much this man can endure for the prize of love.

Colleen's Thoughts: I love this series.  Gabriel tries to follow and rescue Alexandria and is continually thwarted either by her scheming, or that of others.  She does not realize the danger she is in as she continues looking for her parents.  When she finally reaches a stopping point in her search, she is faced with some complicated issues that have nothing to do with her parents.  She is forced to grow up in this book.  Hence, there are some adult situations that are very tastefully and delicately written.  There are many points where we as readers want to yell at the characters, "Just talk to each other!"  Thankfully, it is a happy ending.  We are not left hanging in this book like we were in the last.  But, the third, and final book is still just as anticipated!

About Jamie:  Jamie Carie writes novels about fierce, passionate women; their dreams; their fears; their triumphs. Her deepest desire is to see her readers find that same passion as they follow their destiny and discover deeper intimacy with Jesus.

She lives in Indianapolis with her husband and three sons.
