With his pride and her prejudice, what could possibly go wrong?
    
    When the arrogant Blake Hansen steals Addie Preston's promotion at the library, he pretty much rubs her nose in it. But Addie, who dreams of being a full-fledged librarian, decides to stick it out. She loves surrounding herself with books and keeping her father's memory alive in the building where they spent so much time together.
    
    Soon, Addie learns that her beloved library will be torn down to make room for a larger facility, and she has to make a choice. Fight, or let go?
    
    To complicate things, she finds herself attracted to Blake, who is engaged to someone else. Will Blake and Addie ever resolve their differences?
    
    This is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice, with hints of the other Jane Austen books as well.

Loving this. Immediately drawn in. "Sickening lightning bolt of pain". Wow! That captured a moment and a feeling. I felt her pain. Also enjoying the pace of your dialogue. Quick, but natural. Keeps such a good flow going.  Really looking forward to see where this goes.  :-)

I'm a kitchen sink. You don't know what that means. Because a kitchen sink to you is not a kitchen sink to me, ok friend?
It's like the cliché annoying girl with two horrible ponytails on either side of her face, braces and thick glasses, who also happens to be an A grade student and a teacher's pet and who tells on any student who dares step out of line. Ughh. I hate those kind of girls.....
