Beyond the Book: Purple Heart

Today is my last excerpt from Purple Heart. If you've enjoyed the excerpts, you can find the book at

We've seen how Mike felt about Jenna, and today we'll see a bit of her point of view. 

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?

Jenna wondered what she had done to offend Mike Hightower. The man acted like a positive boor. He always spoke in a hateful tone of voice, and the expression on his face looked downright hostile. She wished that she had the option of waiting for a better tenant, but since she needed the money, she supposed he could have the apartment. What a shame that he seemed so unfriendly. Well, she’d treat him nicely anyway. As her mother always said, you could catch more flies with sugar than with vinegar.

Very, very true! And I feel for her that she has to accept him as the tenant since she needs the money.

That is so true - sorry I missed visiting last week, but I had to come back to read the next episode this is such an intriguing premise and while I understand the reason why he reacts like he does, I feel for heras she has no idea whay he's so hostile.
