Prejudice Meets Pride by Rachael Anderson Book CoverPrejudice Meets Pride by Rachael Anderson

After years of pinching pennies and struggling to get through art school, Emma Makie’s hard work finally pays off with the offer of a dream job. But when tragedy strikes, she has no choice but to make a cross-country move to Colorado Springs to take temporary custody of her two nieces. She has no money, no job prospects, and no idea how to be a mother to two little girls, but she isn’t about to let that stop her. Nor is she about to accept the help of Kevin Grantham, her handsome new neighbor, who seems to think she’s incapable of doing anything on her own.
Fun, compelling, and romantic, Prejudice Meets Pride is the story of a guy who thinks he has it all figured out and a girl who isn’t afraid to show him that he doesn’t. It’s about learning what it means to trust, figuring out how to give and to take, and realizing that not everyone gets to pick the person they fall in love with. Sometimes, love picks them.

Guest Post

The story of Prejudice Meets Pride first came about over a year ago, when I sat down with my sister to plot out a new story. I had a scene in my head, and that was it. (The one in the grocery store near the beginning of the book.) From there, we came up with the popular personality traits of the two main characters: prideful and prejudiced. And then, the rest of the story evolved.

Because this wasn’t going to be yet another rewrite of the popular Jane Austen tale, I hesitated about using those words in the title. But ultimately, they won out. I loved the alliteration, the contrast, and the fact that they sounded so great together (probably because it’s such a popular title). But I’m not even close to the story-teller that Jane Austen was, so here’s hoping readers will cut me a little slack and not compare me to her.

Emma’s character was so much fun to write. She’s passionate, kind, and yet crazy stubborn. Kevin, on the other hand, was a tad judgmental, sometimes clueless, yet always tried to do the right thing. At times, their personalities clashed, creating some fun, crackling scenes, and at other times, they were the perfect compliment.

In the end, this story became one of my favorites, and I’m really excited to share it with everyone. If you ever get around to reading it, I hope it makes you smile and laugh, touches your heart, and leaves you feeling happy. Because that’s what this book is: happy. Just like I’m really happy that it’s finally out.
