Grand adventures, exotic locales, dangerous quests and romantic passion mark Jamie Carie’s The Forgotten Castles trilogy.
Lady Alexandria Featherstone lives in the crumbling Lindisfarne Castle, and turns amateur sleuth when her parents are declared dead. Determined to discover the truth about her parents’ disappearance, Alexandra travels through Ireland in The Guardian Duke (B&H), Iceland in The Forgiven Duke, and Italy in the final story.
“Along the way she picks up new friends,” Jamie shares, “finds new resources within herself, plumbs the depths of her faith, and tries to stay one step ahead of her guardian, a man who is becoming more and more interesting through his letters, and later, his actions as he, too, faces a personal challenge that brings him to his knees.”
Jamie has loosely based the Duke of St. Easton on King Solomon. “He has everything—power, wealth, intelligence … he’s a strikingly good-looking man, but he’s miserable. He is a Christ-follower but struggles with what that looks like and feels like and what he thinks it is supposed to look and feel like.”
Writing Christian romance is a reflection of two of Jamie’s heartfelt passions, “I am passionate about love—both God’s love and the romantic love between a man and a woman. I never get tired of hearing how two people met and fell in love—just ask anyone who knows me.”
Jamie is in the planning stages of a new series. This time she intends to create a fairy-tale town of her own imagining, for her heroines to explore—but rest assured, romance and adventure will abound.
