Alert on Susan Carlisle, His Heart's Home


When opposites attract…sparks ignite!

Historical architect Jordan Glass moves to rural England in her continued effort to escape an affair gone wrong that included losing a baby while in college. Eight years later still vowing to steer clear of relationships, she takes on a job rebuilding a damaged manor knowing it’s the perfect place to live in solitude. What she doesn’t plan on is Craig Lewis the owner arriving before the work is finished. Worse he brings his daughter along and they must share temporary lodging with Jordon.
Craig is shocked when his ex-wife drops their pre-teen daughter on his doorstep - permanently. He struggles to relate to his angry child and desperately wants to gain her trust. To give her a secure place to live he decides to renovate a wing of his family home Llywelyn Hall. Life is further complicated by him being sexually drawn to the beautiful architect. Equally frustrating is Jordon communicates with his daughter far better than he.
Craig’s family struggle tugs at Jordon’s heartstrings. Against her better judgement, Jordon is pulled deeper into their lives, tipping friendship over into desire.

1.     What inspires you to write? 

        I keep having stories to tell. I love a good love story. Mine are the type I like to read. Strong men and smart women who spark off each other. Through their trials they find the essence of one another that gives them a happily ever after. Boy, I sound like a romance writer. 

2.     What is your favourite genre and why?

        I write contemporary romance (which I love) but historical romance runs a close second. In my reading I swap back and forth between the two of them. Then sometimes I choose based on how I'm feeling.

3.     Share a bit about your writing process. 

       It seems to change a little bit with every book. I mostly work off setting. What could happen here? Then I come up with characters names and jobs. After that the idea of a cute meet. That always is something active - them doing something - car accident, at work, shopping. Then I let the characters live their life which is working, going to the grocery, having fights, making up, going to parties, etc. Through these they learn about each other and grow to love one aother.
4.    Tell us about your book...
        His Heart's Home is the last in the Modern Masters of Their Castles series. It is about Craig Lewis who needs his manor house repair so he and his recently estranged daughter will have a home to live in. He hires Jordon Glass, an architect to oversee the job. She is hiding from her past and isn't happy when Craig and his daughter come to live at the manor before she has finished the renovation. Jordon wants nothing to do with a child, but bonds with the girl quicker than Craig does. To make matters worse she is attracted to Craig. He isn't looking to marry again but Jordon has him thinking: What if? 

About Susan Carlisle

Susan Carlisle’s love affair with books began when she made a bad grade in math in the sixth grade. Not allowed to watch TV until she brought the grade up, Susan filled her time with books. She turned her love of reading into a love of writing. Susan has released through HarperCollins’s Harlequin medical imprint over thirty contemporary romances. Her Modern Masters of Their Castles trilogy is under her own imprint. Her steamy stories have strong heroes with the vibrant women who challenge them.

Her traditionally published nonfiction book Nick’s New Heart 30 Years and Counting came out on March 2021, under Susan May. It is about her son’s heart transplant experience. The second, a historical biography A WWII Flight Surgeon’s Story was released by Pelican Publishing under the author name S. Carlisle May.
