Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors

Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, your chance to sample the work of a talented group of authors. When you finish here you can find more excerpts at:

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:  I've skipped the rest of the part where they make their arrangements, and today we get Jenna's view of Mike. I hope you've enjoyed these excerpts. Next week we'll do something else.

I can't help thinking that a single woman should be bit more careful about renting to guys who are powderkegs with a lit fuse.

Teresa Cypher said...

Interesting, seeing it through her eyes. My mom said that too. I may even have uttered it a time or two. :-)

Amy Braun said...

I totally applaud her attitude, because I would not take his crap for anything haha Also my blog link isn't working, so here's my post!

I would be really hesitant to rent to someone who seemed so hostile for whatever reason. Hope she doesn’t regret it!

Veronica Scott said...

I love her approach and I'm glad you made it clear she really needs the rent money so we aren't left wondering why on earth she puts up with him. Effective writing, great snippet!

Jenna said...

Circumstances have a way of making us swallow our pride or distaste about people. I do hope he lets up on her. But at least we know she was raised right! Great snippet!

Caitlin Stern said...

She must really need the money! I'd show this guy the door if I had any choice at all.

Hum, I wonder if she isn't miss reading something. If he really didn't like her I don't see why he would want to live there.
