Colette L. Saucierabout this book: Who is the ultimate "book boyfriend"?
How about a modern day version of Jane Austen's most popular hero? But imagine he is a tabloid-favorite movie star matching wits with a 21st century head writer for a dying daytime drama. Due to a contract dispute, Hollywood bad boy Peter Walsingham has been forced to lower himself to the degradation of appearing on a soap opera, and Alice McGuillicuty has no patience for his prima donna attitude. In their battle of pride and prejudice, sparks fly, and slowly animosity gives way to attraction.
As an added bonus, full chapters of the absurdist, melodramatic novel THE EDGE OF DARKNESS are weaved throughout the primary plot as Alice reads and allows that story to influence her own.
For lovers of Jane Austen or contemporary classics, THE PROUD AND THE PREJUDICE will delight and surprise readers with what Publisher's Weekly called "its masterful dialogue...skillfully rendered love scenes," and "roller coaster of plot twists." Although the storyline mirrors PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, Alice and Peter are no Elizabeth and Darcy but original, three-dimensional characters from today.
