Rainy Day Lovers ~ #New Release by @AliciaStreet1 #mgtab

I love reading and writing a romance series that follows the different members of a family. Seeing how their particular role in the family dynamic affects their attitudes and approach when it comes to finding their way to love. 

Raina spent her youth as the problem-solver and peacekeeper of her volatile dysfunctional household, then later continued in a similar role as a family law attorney often working sixteen-hour days. But as she watches her family and her clients move on with their lives, she is shocked to discover she forgot to get a life of her own.

After a tragedy that left him orphaned and alone, Roman finally got a second chance and he made the most of it. Although he is now a plastic surgeon, an expert in repairing external scars, the scars from his own internal wounds still haunt him—and so does the memory of the girl whose act of courage and kindness changed his life.

Rainy Day Lovers is on sale for 99¢ during its release. 

Maybe Lovers by Alicia Street #New Release #mgtab

I’m thrilled to share my new release with you—Maybe Lovers. It examines that cloudy, ambiguous area when two people have gotten involved but cannot really define or give a label to what is happening between them.

This is book two in my new spicy series, The Rocklyns, although all my series books can be read as stand-alones. For readers familiar with my heroine in Tomboy Bride from my Dance ‘n’ Love series, you will recognize the family of brothers and cousins that will all now have their own books. I enjoy writing about families and how they are affected and interact with the main characters who are facing the roller coaster ride of falling in love.

Maybe Lovers is available on Kindle Unlimited.

Can a hot doc with his own troubles convince a cynical bartender that it’s okay to dream of love?

Carly Kuper has learned you shouldn’t wish for things you cannot have. And that includes the handsome orthopedist who is a regular customer at the bistro bar where she works.

Jeff Rocklyn has always liked taking care of people, but sometimes it gets him in over his head, especially when it comes to women.

When the two of them end up together in a Paris hotel, steamy fireworks erupt, but the aftermath opens private wounds and a secret that could destroy them both.

Love, Christmas 2: Miracle on Christmas Tree Street by Alicia Street

My story in the Authors’ Billboard bestselling boxed set Love, Christmas – Movies You Love is based on the holiday classic Miracle on 34th Street. I love the way it blends down-to-earth reality together with the magical elements of Christmas.

A personal reason this has always been a favorite movie of mine is because my mother worked in Macy’s Department Store when I was growing up. When school let out for Christmas vacation I would sometimes go into work with her and wander the store all day, watching people shop for gifts and looking at all the pretty decorations and taking in the holiday cheer.

While my story has a rural setting and does not include a court case against a man who needs to prove he is Santa Claus, I do have a pessimistic single mom, and her daughter who is befriended by a Santa-like grandfather figure who might be more than he seems. And of course there is a handsome bachelor who is determined to break through the icy walls the single mom has built around herself.

Luckily my own mother was nothing like the cynical woman in the movie played by Maureen O’ Hara or the one in my story. But this character is the perfect counterpart to the Santa Claus character who enters her life and proceeds to confuse, baffle, and inspire. I love the way he challenges her reality and the way a parent realizes she can learn something from her child.

It is this transformation that creates the story’s message of hope and faith. A belief that wonderful things can happen and that you can still find miracles in a cynical world.

Love, Christmas 2 is available on  Amazon  Kobo  B&N  iBooks
