Description from the publisher:

Cora Allen moved to the English countryside from America to take care of her dying aunt. She never thought she would still be in the same sleepy town two years later. Cora has dreams for her life that far exceed bartending at her cousin’s pub. She is lost and searching for a new path when her current one collides with Lord Eric Ashford. He is so handsome and charming that she is easily swept up in him. She wants to let down her walls and trust him but his world is full of so much that is strange to her. Should she set her dreams aside for his?
Lord Eric Ashford loved his life. It was one filled with excess and women. Lately it had started to feel empty and he looked for a change. On a night where he almost made the biggest mistake of his life he meets Cora Allen. He is drawn to the young American right away. From the first time he saw her he has wanted to touch her, to possess her. She is unlike any other woman in his life. She makes him laugh and surprises him constantly. She has breathed lightness into him he thought he lost forever. But what will she say when she learns the truth about his life?

Can these two overcome the pain and loss in their pasts and let each other in? Can they look beyond the differences in their lives? Can they tear down each other’s walls and create a space where they both have room to breathe?


I had agreed to do the blog tour for FAITH TO ENDURE, so I read it first.  I was very thankful that the author had generously provided ROOM TO BREATHE for those of us who had missed out on this story.  I am happy to say that FAITH TO ENDURE does stand on its own, but it is a richer read if you know the back story provided in ROOM TO BREATHE.

This story has all of the magic of a modern Cinderella.  Cora has caught the attention of a Lord while working as a barmaid for her cousin in a small town in England.  In no time at all, he has swept her off her feet and she is head over heels in love, but is he? Can he?

I loved living in this fantasy for a while.  It is every little girly-girl’s dream to be made to feel like a princess and Lord Eric Ashford knows how to make dreams come true.  

I need to also mention that book cover.  The model is gorgeous with just the right amount of curves.
