Book Review A Duke's Promise by Jamie Carie

Book Description:

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.

My Review:
Firstly Thanks to Jamie for my copy. I won it last year to read for a book club. 
This is book three and I haven't read the first two books in the series but I was able to follow the story. Having read the first two would be a benefit but you can follow the story if you read this as a stand alone book. I enjoyed the book and the story. Found Alex a strong female and also quite resourceful and adventurous. Gabriel is also a strong hero but has an affliction which causes a few issues. It was good to see a hero with and affliction and how they work around it. I found the book edgy in some places and in saying this I am not saying it was a problem just a little edgier than some books but never crossing the line. (far from it). This was a good read.
