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, an d 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.
Kevin leaned down, and his shoulder brushed hers, making her arm feel more sensitive than usual. Emma couldn’t decide if she wanted to stay put or slide farther away. Kevin was her neighbor and now her boss—someone who felt the need to step in and help her out at every opportunity because he seemed to think she couldn’t handle anything on her own. The last thing Emma wanted was to give him yet another reason to roll his handsome dark eyes at her—eyes that were now staring at a list of names on the computer screen.
Emma sat up straighter and jabbed her finger at the monitor. “How did you do that?” she blurted.
“Do what?” Those amazing dark eyes turned on Emma. He was so close. Too close. A slew of butterflies knocked against the wall of her stomach.
What had he just said? Wait—what had she just said? Belatedly, Emma realized her slip. So much for playing it cool and figuring things out on her own. Why hadn’t she simply observed and paid closer attention to how he’d accessed that screen?
Kevin lifted an eyebrow in question, and since Emma couldn’t think of a logical reason she’d asked the question, other than the truth, she gave up and nodded toward the monitor. “How did you find that list of all the patients in your database?”
“Oh, easy.” Kevin clicked the ESC key, returning the screen to the main menu. “Just click on Members, then All. And voilà.” The beautiful screen appeared again, listing all of the patient names. Thank goodness there were a lot of A and B surnames, so if there were duplicate Carson, Benjamin entries, at least he couldn’t see them.
Until he started scrolling down. His eyebrows knit together when five of the exact same names appeared. Emma wanted to drop her head to the desk and bury her face in her arms. Could she not catch a break with this guy? It seemed to be her destiny to constantly prove how incompetent she was.
Kevin’s gaze moved from the monitor to the stack of papers on her desk, where he undoubtedly saw Benjamin Carson’s name on the top of the stack. His lips twitched as he continued scrolling down the list. “I had no idea that Benjamin Carson was such a popular name.”
