Prejudice Meets Pride is now available!!!

Wow, this has been a crazy couple of months. With The Ripple Effect Series and now Prejudice Meets Pride (the first book in my upcoming Meet Your Match series), I feel like I'm announcing a new book all the time. But here we are again, this time with my next full-length novel.

The story of Prejudice Meets Pride began over a year ago, when my awesome sister, Letha, sat down with me to help plot out a new book. It took a few days to get the bones in place, and then a whole lot longer to write it, but the result is a book that I'm really excited about. In fact, I fell in love with the characters so much that I decided to turn it into a series called Meet Your Match. Here's hoping you'll love the stories and the characters too!

Prejudice Meets Pride
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 neighbor, who seems to think she’s incapable of doing anything on her own. 

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.

Now available on Amazon!

And if you like the first book, feel free to sign up for my New Release email list, and I'll notify you when the rest of the series is available. Thanks for reading!!!

Lost & Found (book 4) is HERE!!!

My Review:
I absolutely loved this book. I laughed out loud in the first chapter then continued to smile the rest of the way through. Karey White is an awesome writer and did a beautiful job telling Lydia's story. This novella is fun, touching, and romantic. I adored the characters and love that she brought Cambri back in for a cameo appearance. Read it! You'll love it. :)

Lydia was supposed to have an adventurous and exciting summer. Instead she's done nothing more than read and eat takeout. Now it's time to go home, and what does she have to show for it? A big fat nothing. Unless, of course, her trip to the airport somehow turns into something more than just a flight home. 

Blake feels like he's been sent on a wild goose chase. While work is piling up back in Denver, he's on the other side of the country, hunting for some mysterious box that his grandfather left him. Well, no more. Nothing inside that box could possibly be more important than the opportunity to make it as the youngest partner at his firm. So he's going home, and that's that. But that's before he discovers his flight has been cancelled. 

When these two strangers meet at the airport, they make a split-second decision to search for the box together. Maybe with both of them on the hunt, Lydia can have her adventure and Blake can find the box. And maybe, if they’re lucky, they’ll even find some romance.

Righting a Wrong (Book 3) is HERE!! Yay!

This video is the PERFECT lead-in to the purpose behind The Ripple Effect series . . .

I’ve always been fascinated by the Ripple Effect phenomenon and how a person’s actions, no matter how big or small, can have a rippling effect on others, in both good ways and bad. Say I’m driving down a high-trafficked road and choose to let someone cut in front of me (rather than speed up and eliminate the gap). Will that make the other person more likely to be kind to someone else? I think so. And if that someone else passes on that kindness even further, then without even realizing it, my one small act of kindness could ripple outward in a really positive way.

Conversely, choosing to speed up and not let someone in might make him/her angry or sad or add to an already bad day. Who wants to be responsible for that? Not me.

Years ago, while a student in college, I was having a rotten day. I don’t remember why, or what caused it. I just remember feeling down and cranky and lousy. I’m sure you can imagine what my expression might have looked like. Well, in I walked to a large auditorium class, and as I made my way down the crowded aisle, searching for a seat, an elderly man was on his way out. A wide smile lit his face when he approached me, and his hand grasped my arm.

“You look like such a wonderful person,” he said to me. “I hope you have a great day.” Then he continued on his way.

And that was it. I teared up on the spot, feeling so unworthy of the compliment. But wow, what a difference those few words of kindness made to me—a stranger. I’m sure he had no idea the powerful lesson he taught me that day or the fact that I still remember it 15 years later. I left that auditorium a happier person, a better person. I smiled at people passing by and said hello. I held the door open for another student whose arms were full, and I got a “thanks” in return. Sometimes I wonder if people realize how big of a difference those little things can make and how much better this world would be if more people made them.

And that is how The Ripple Effect Romances came about. I thought it would be really cool to do a series about everyday people making decisions (big or small) that, in one way or another, impacted the lives of friends, family members, or total strangers. The main character’s actions in book 1 would have a positive impact on the lives of a character in book 2, and so on down the line. Fun, right?

I hope you all enjoy reading these stories as much as we enjoyed writing them. And may all of your words and actions ripple outward in a positive, beautiful way.

On an even happier note, my book is officially out! Yay!!!
