Buy link:


Jenna West has no idea what she might have done to her new tenant Mike Hightower. He's surly and hateful every single time they meet, and he looks at her as though he despises her.

He does despise her. She's from the Middle East, and people like her killed his friend Ramirez when the army sent them to Iraq.

Will the power of love work its magic to soften Mike's bitter hatred, or will he ignore his growing attraction for his pretty landlady?

Last Week:

This week: Mike gets Jenna's phone number. Stan speaks first.

Good dialogue, moving the story forward. :-)

Amy Braun said...

Hopefully Jenna will!

Veronica Scott said...

This snippet moves the story forward, as Teresa said. Maybe not a riveting moment LOL but necessary if we're going to get to the heart of the matter so thanks for sharing!

I have a feeling he’s going to be surprised when he meets Jenna.

Ed Hoornaert said...

It seems Mike made the recommendation in good faith, unaware of the history that has corrupted the hero's open mind.

Hywela Lyn said...

Oh dear, I wonder what's going to happen when he meets her?

Caitlin Stern said...

Seems innocuous, but the blurb makes me sure fireworks are coming!

This snippet seems a little slow, but I'm sure it's necessary to set the stage for what's coming next.
