 “Carved Wooden Heart” is a contemporary romance. 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.


Reviews for “Carved Wooden Heart”

Powerful and Passionate I loved this intimate story. From the very first page I was pulled into this beautiful powerful romance.

The unique nature of Jesse’s work and the incredible attraction between the two lovers were elements

that kept me turning pages well into the night. I look forward to more from Ms. Elizabeth Horton-Newton.

Interesting story about love, fate and choices!

Great new novel from Elizabeth Horton-Newton! Follow Dani as she meet mysterious and sexy artist Jesse, then loses touch with him. By the time they meet again, fate has taken her along a dramatically different path, and her life — full of new people, love and tragedy, makes her into a different person from the girl he once knew. Dani needs to make critical choices about love and family, not just for herself, but for the ones she holds most dear. I love that Elizabeth included details about Native American traditional carving! I was fascinated to learn about it.

In love with Jesse.

Not only is Jesse Native American, he’s a relatable character, which means he’s gorgeous, flawed, and makes the ups and downs that he goes through and is put through so believable. Poor Dani finds her true love then loses him, and life slips slowly downhill from there as she goes from one trial to the next until she’s back where she should have always been. A long read but it wasn’t long enough. I hated for the story to end. Great job, ladies. Book 2 anyone?
