Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Alana Quintana Albertson!
I write heart books filled with passion and culture. My latest book, Ramón and Julieta, celebrates Latine joy and is the tale of star-crossed lovers who meet on Day of the Dead and discover they are from star-crossed families. It’s the first book in the Love & Tacos series.
I’m a California chica living in sunny San Diego. I live with my husband and two sweet sons and run a dog rescue, Pugs N’ Roses. I spend my free time walking along the beach, doing yoga, and gardening. You can find me sipping an iced Mexican oat milk mocha and eating tacos.
What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match:
Looking for readers who want to fall in love with strong, sexy characters that are deeply rooted in their beliefs. Must love to laugh, have a great appetite, and must love dogs!
What to expect if we're compatible:
Vivid descriptions of food
Always a shelter pet sidekick
Road trip through California
Love & Tacos #1
When fate and tacos bring Ramón and Julieta together on the Day of the Dead, the star-crossed pair must make a choice: accept the bitter food rivalry that drives them apart or surrender to a love that consumes them—perfect for fans of Jane the Virgin!
Ramón Montez always achieves his goals. Whether that means collecting Ivy League degrees or growing his father’s fast-food empire, nothing sets Ramón off course. So when the sexy señorita who kissed him on the Day of the Dead runs off into the night with his heart, he determines to do whatever it takes to find her again.
Celebrity chef Julieta Campos has sacrificed everything to save her sea-to-table taqueria from closing. To her horror, she discovers that her new landlord is none other than the magnetic mariachi she hooked up with on Dia de los Muertos. Even worse, it was his father who stole her mother’s taco recipe decades ago. Julieta has no choice but to work with Ramón, the man who destroyed her life’s work—and the one man who tempts and inspires her.
As San Diego’s outraged community protests against the Taco King takeover and the divide between their families grows, Ramón and Julieta struggle to balance the rising tensions. But Ramón knows that true love is priceless and despite all of his successes, this is the one battle he refuses to lose.
