Upon meeting the contractor who would be overseeing the restoration of a Hartley Castle tower, Ian Chalmers was not impressed at first. Besides being a woman, Allison Moore is also from America, which leads to him having doubts about her capabilities. Since the death of his father and brother, it has been up to him to carry out any family responsibilities, and he wants someone who will make sure the job is done competently. After careful consideration, Ian decides to hire Allison and hopes her work is more than satisfactory. Though he should not be intrigued by the American, as she is not at all the type of female that he would normally find appealing, her lively personality is just too charming to ignore.
I really liked how Ian and Allison interacted with one another, as Susan Carlisle makes their responses realistic with a wide variety of sentiments. This couple displays many emotions to let me know how they felt about a particular situation, and their comments are usually very candid. Neither holds back when it comes to displaying their inner feelings, and I really liked how honest they were with each other. Some of the issues Allison and Ian had to face are not too troublesome, while several could be life-changing. Regardless of what was going on in their lives, all events came across as believable. The English setting is colorfully portrayed, where some scenes demonstrated daily life while others showed a very special moment shared by this couple. CORNERSTONE OF LOVE is a compelling start to an enchanting series, where entertainment abounds. Rating - 4.5 Stars
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.
Ian Chalmers became Earl of Hartley upon his father and older brother's death and though it was never the way he expected to live his life, he stepped up heartily and throws himself into his responsibilities ... at the expense of his own happiness.
Allison Moore is an expert in her field of structural engineering and restoration, but she's looking to move forward in her life and make a few more of her dreams come true.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves a strong feminine heroine weaved into a royal romance. The characters showed spunk and a whole lot of heart. I enjoyed it and look forward to more in the series.
Ian is the Lord of Hartley Castle and Allison is the American contractor hired to repair the aging structure. Allison has her own way of doing things, with her pink hard hat and need to climb around the structure, that leaves Ian wondering if she is serious enough for the job. However, as they get to know each other he sees her passion for history and need to do things right and she sees he’s not as stuffy as he lets on. I loved the slow build of their romance and the lengths they would both go to take care of the ones they love.
Ian's loss was heart-wrenching, but necessary to bring these two "lost souls" together. I finished this in one sitting and look forward to finishing this series. Thanks for keeping it temptingly sexy and tasteful.
