Can two men build a relationship when one must tear down each
stone that the other has worked so hard to build?

In the year 1535, after a misspent youth, Brother Mark is a
hardworking Benedictine monk toiling as a stone mason at
Tavistock Abbey. There, he finds himself irrevocably drawn to one
of the men sent by King Henry to audit the monasteries prior to

Andrew Cheyne is fascinated by the handsome young man and
breaks down the monk’s boundaries with an ease that neither
expected. When Andrew returns four years later to finally close the
Abbey, each man must also come to terms with their past to
attempt to plan a future they can share.

But fate plays a cruel trick on them. Or, as Mark wonders, is it God
teaching him a lesson?

Attempting to forget Mark, Andrew commences a brand new life,
but fate has more lessons in store for him yet...
Stone by Stone Hearts on Fire review link
I did like this book for many reasons. First, it is a historical romance that
held true to the history behind the story. Second, the undying love that
each man possessed for each other was an inspiring thing to behold. But
even bigger and more on a personal note, the love between the two men
is seen as a fault only by man, and not by God.

...Brother Mark of Lydford, an apprentice stonecutter at Tavistock,
awakening from a wet dream, guiltily savoring the pleasure of being
fondled by another man. “He needed someone to love him—a man to
love him. A man he could love. God forgive him…”  Brother Mark will
soon get his wish.
