Beyond the Book: Purple Heart

Welcome to Beyond the Book. Today we'll continue with out excerpts from Purple Heart, my Wild Rose Press release. 


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:

The receptionist gave Mike a sweet smile. “He’s expecting you, Mr. Hightower. I’ll tell him you’re here. Will you sign in for me, please?” she asked as she handed him a clipboard. 

As she stood, Mike noted with amusement that she deliberately displayed her cute little figure and long, slim legs. She had dark hair and a smooth, fresh complexion. As rich as a decadent piece of chocolaty fudge, her eyes locked with his and invited him to notice her. 

Stan Jacobs came bouncing out of his office to greet Mike. He exuberantly threw his arms around his old army buddy. “Man, you’re a sight for sore eyes. How have you been?” 

This week: In this week's excerpt, Mike meets his old army buddy.

“Better since I got my discharge.”

“Yeah, I know what you mean. I don’t miss the army at all even though I do miss my buddies.”

“I feel exactly the same way.”

“Come on in and let’s have some coffee.”

Mike followed Stan into his office. The walls were 
paneled in what Mike would bet was some type of exotic hardwood, and Stan had covered them in pictures of Eden’s Crossing. The marble floor matched the lobby, and the furniture looked sleek, expensive, and modern. A black bookcase covered the wall behind Stan’s desk. “This is nice,” Mike allowed.
