  • A Modern Lord and His Castle

    As a lover of historical romance, usually when I read about lords and castles, it is in that context. So I found myself intrigued when I founded this particular book at one of my favorite book review sites. I had to see what a modern lord in a crumbling castle would be like. I found this book to be a lot of fun. The hero and heroine feel attraction nearly instantly, but they start butting heads right away, too. She's an American whose firm has been contracted to repair his castle; this was all done through an estate manager, so he has no clue that she's both American and female. He doesn't think she has the chops to handle his rebuild. She finds him completely aggravating and arrogant. The romance is a slow build, which I like, and I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions between the couple on their bumpy road to even an amicable working relationship, let alone anything else. The characters are likable, relatable, and believable. All in all, I found this to be a very fun, spirited, and sometimes sassy read. I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.

  • A Great Read

    Ian and Allison’s love story in Cornerstone of Love by Susan Carlisle, book one in her Modern Masters of Their Castles series, is a sweet and enjoyable tale. Ian Chalmers never expected to become the Earl of Hartley or the CEO of Hartley Shipping, but when his father and older brother were killed he didn’t have a choice. Ian allowed these responsibilities to take over his life, doing whatever was expected of him. When a fascinating, free-spirited woman is hired to lead the repairs on Hartley castle, Ian’s structured life is suddenly turned upside down. Alison Moore is the construction engineer who was hired to oversee the repairs on Hartley castle. Her attraction to Ian was off-set by the way he had to be in control of everything within his scope of influence. Allison was determined to get this job done as it would bring her closer to reaching her life’s goal of having a home of her own. As their attraction continues to sizzle and pull them together and with the project nearing completion, Ian and Allison will have to decide what they want most in life. In doing so, they realize their goals are not necessarily the ones they should have been wishing, and working, for; that they need a cornerstone for their love to build upon. Ms. Carlisle wrote an emotional, flirty, sweet romance that should not be missed. She provided a tale rich with emotions, off the charts chemistry, magnetic attraction, wonderful dialogue, and endearing characters giving Ian and Allison a chance at a forever love. I highly recommend Cornerstone of Love to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

  • A sweet escape

    I enjoyed this unique and modern take on a Lord-of-the-castle finding his one true love. The story drew me in from the beginning and I had fun journeying with the characters. I felt a connection to both Allison and Ian and was eager for them to find a way to be together. I liked that Allison was feisty, independent and strong whilst simultaneously also having a softer, more vulnerable side. This was a sweet story with a little heat and I look forward to reading upcoming books in this series to find out how the rest of the ladies at Historical Restorations make out. I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review. All opinions expressed are solely my own.

  • Cornerstone of Love is a worth-the-lost-sleep read

    Main Characters: Lord Ian Chalmers, Earl of Hartley Allison Moore, engineer Ian is ensconced in his world of business obligations and family duty. Allison is longing to finally settle closer to family and do more baking and less business. He’s an English lord. She’s a modern Southern belle from America with fire and gumption – nothing like the women he’s dated. From the first page, sparks of interest flew between Ian and Allison, even when they were verbally sparring. I found them to be quite entertaining, often smiling as I read their story. Allison wasn’t what Ian expected. She challenged and intrigued him. Ian aggravated her, even as she fought the attraction. It was delightful! Even though they seem -at first glance- to be an unlikely match, author Susan Carlisle deftly weaves their personality traits and background stories together. Some elements pull the couple together, others push them apart. Cornerstone of Love is a feel-good, worth-the-lost-sleep romance that leaves the reader with a satisfied sigh. I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
