Jake Stark is sent by his grandfather Richard to the small town of Sweetwater, Tennessee to interview one of the candidates for a position in the family’s national publications. Sadie feels Jake is looking down his nose at her and her town. Jake inserts himself uninvited into her life. When she travels to New York City to meet the Board of Directors of Stark Publications she is unprepared for the adventures that follow. She meets Pepper Vandenberg, Jake’s purported fiancee to be. Is Jake using Sadie to make Pepper jealous or is there more to their passion than what happens in the bedroom? This is a story about chance encounters leading to unexpected liaisons. When Fate steps in, common sense flies out the window. A steamy romance from one of the author’s of “Carved Wooden Heart”.
Carved Wooden Heartby Elizabeth Horton-Newton, the Seductress of Suspense, and Starla Hartless will be on sale on Kindle for $.99 February 12 through February 14th!
“A sexy encounter with a talented native artist, a broken heart, and a knight in shining armor are just the beginning in this passionate romance. Dani Stone never expected to fall in love with carver Jesse Wolf Carver. She certainly didn’t foresee the results of her intense one-night stand with the sexy hunk. From the wealth of New York City to the southern city of Knoxville, Tennessee, follow Dani as she journeys the winding path fate has laid out for her. Will she ever forget Jesse and the passion she felt in his arms? Can any man replace him in her heart? And most importantly, will her secret be revealed? This is a story of passion, love, loss, and courage.”
Daniella is a young woman just beginning to find her way in life. Jesse is an artist haunted by personal demons. When Dani’s work brings them together, a brief interval of passion leads to feelings deep enough to last a lifetime. But fate is a fickle thing, and a series of chance events soon forces them apart. But, sometimes, seemingly harmless actions can have lasting consequences, and life doesn’t always lead us along the road we thought it would.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the characters and how they grew and changed from beginning to end. I read it in one sitting! I had to know what happened to Dani and Jessie! Their journey took them down many roads. It is a steamy romance that had me rooting for them from the day they met. I would highly recommend this book.
Carved Wooden Heart is a mixture of high octane romance and a twisty adventure that will keep you up at night wondering how the characters will all evolve. Having already read Riddle and View From The Sixth Floor, I knew Horton-Newton’s work very well. In collaboration with Starla Hartless, an author I wasn’t familiar with, I was glad to find the voice kept up with the traditional clipped pace I was used to.
