ALMOST A FAMILY is released in print today!

If you're in the US, huzzah! Because you can buy it instore at Borders and perhaps even Barnes and Noble.

If you're not....well, if you're like me you do most of your book shopping online anyway. So you can visit any of the amazons and find it there!

Can a four year old girl, a snowball fight and a six-year-old diamond ring finally keep Molly and Jason together?

Prominent lawyer Molly Schaeffer rearranges her life to return home and take care of her niece after a car accident leaves Molly's sister hospitalized. Little does she know that Jason Elliot, her ex-boyfriend-turned-hot-veterinarian, is her sister's next-door neighbor.

Jason's been burned by Molly before and has no intention of letting it happen again. He's made his own success with a lucrative practice. But what he secretly wants is a family of his own, and he knows that a career woman like Molly is not the sort to give it to him. Since Molly turned down his proposal six years before and left town, he's kept his broken heart under wraps. Can they forgive each other enough to make a new start? Or is this the final goodbye they never really had?

And here's what reviewers have said about ALMOST A FAMILY:

"Ms. Alward adds the fair amount of humor in Almost a Family. I enjoyed the lighthearted moments; I really enjoyed how the playful times could turn to full blown passion so seamlessly. This is my first book by Donna Alward, and I’m intrigued to see what else this talented author has up her sleeves." (Fallen Angels Reviews, 5 Angels)

"Donna Alward has written an emotionally packed tear jerker...She shows that, even though attraction is still sizzling, sometimes chemistry is not enough to secure a future together. The story is sweet and loving and a true winner." (The Romance Studio, 5 Hearts)

"...well written and romantic." (Romance Reviews Today)

"Donna Alward does a fantastic job of leading her readers on a wonderful journey of the heart. This is a delightful story that is endearing, sizzling, but oh so refreshing as a glass of cold lemonade on a summer day! " (Romance Junkies, 4.5 Ribbons)
