Carlos & Casey
When in Rome
By Ember Leigh
We are touring with Books 1 and 2 of the series, but there is also a sneak peek at book 3!!
CARLOS & CASEY
Join two ex-lovers, four years after their last romp. When a work trip brings Casey back into Carlos’ territory, she knows she’d have him right there in the airport parking lot. But Carlos doesn’t seem so eager. Unsure of herself post-divorce, Casey knows only one thing: she wants this man as much as she did the last time she saw him. And she’s more than ready to relive every saucy adventure they had together. Can the sparks be salvaged, or has time left them behind?
WHEN IN ROME
“When in Rome, do as the Romans do”…right? Alexandra is a travel junkie and foreign air aficionado. When she finally decides to do Rome, she never thought it would involve a hot Italian, too. What’s a girl to do when a desire to see the world and instant lust collide in the middle of one of the most popular touristic destinations in the world? Just DO the Roman!
SNEAK PEEK BOOK #3
All the female staffers go wild for Kadir when he arrives in the USA to compete in a reality dance competition. A Turkish soap opera star with eyes that could melt snow, he’s got the women clawing for his attention— except Jenna. She wants no part of the hullabaloo. Though she can’t help wondering if tasting this sexy Turkish Delight might be worth bending the rules a little…
Ember Leigh has been writing erotic romance novels since she was far too young. A native of northern Ohio, she currently resides in South America with her Argentinean partner, a detail she uses to justify her Bachelor’s degree in Latin American Literature. In addition to romance novels, she also writes travel articles, maintains three blogs, and continually attempts to complete a mildly-gripping short story. In her free time, she practices Ashtanga yoga, travels the world, and eats lots of vegetables.
TOP TEN FACTS about TRAVEL
with Ember Leigh
My short story series, Erotic Destinations, is all about world travel and steamy encounters. As a world traveller myself, how could I not start a series dedicated to one of my most favourite activities in the world—seeing the world itself? My latest release ‘When In Rome’ came out last month, and the next instalment, Turkish Delight, is due out later this month. If you weren’t seduced by the mention of world travel, Rome, or Turkey, then I don’t know what to tell you. Just kidding! Here’s a top ten list of interesting travel facts to convince you to take a peek at my series, where you can travel the world, one lover at a time!
- France is the most visited country in the world, according to International Business Times (http://www.ibtimes.com/10-most-visited-countries-world-1253315). Probably has something to do with Paris…or the wine country…or that irresistible French accent. Ooh la la!
- There are 61,000 people flying in the air over the USA at any given time, on any given day (http://www.surpriseride.com/blog/extra-fun/24-fun-facts-aviation/). That’s a huge amount! Will you be one of them soon? And what will your purpose be? A business trip that ends up reuniting with an old lover, like Casey in Book #1, Carlos & Casey? Or like Alexandra in Book #2, When In Rome, who leaves sunny CA to begin a backpacking trip through Europe?
- It is illegal to feed the pigeons on the streets of San Francisco, California. (http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Feeding-birds-isn-t-good-for-them-or-us-4685087.php) I can see this leading to a very interesting Erotic Destinations installment down the road…an unsuspecting foreign tourist to the USA feeding the pigeons, getting arrested, and ultimately falling in the love with the American cop who arrests him…ahhh, love!
- The most remote travel destination in the world is Mongolia, where the population density is four people per square mile. (http://www.worldatlas.com/articles/100001-the-10-least-densely-populated-places-in-the-world-2015) Now that’s what I call a remote romance!
- All the money that is tossed into Rome’s Trevi Fountain is collected (http://luxeadventuretraveler.com/legend-of-the-trevi-fountain/) and donated to various charities. Just imagine how many tourists stop by the fountain every day! And if each one tosses a euro…? That’s some major bucks. Er…euros. I didn’t know this when I went to Rome myself, but I feel better about the euros I flipped into that famous fountain!
- The longest flight in the world is from Sydney to Dallas, lasting 16 hours and covering 8,500 miles in distance. But beginning in February 2016, Emirates plans to offer a non-stop flight from Panama City to Dubia, which will clock in at 17.5 hours. (http://www.businessinsider.com/10-longest-non-stop-commercial-flights-2015-8). That’s juuuust long enough to enter the Mile-High Club a few times over. Or, you know, puke endlessly into a bag if you have air sickness.
- Travel can make you happier (http://www.forbes.com/sites/hbsworkingknowledge/2013/08/05/want-to-buy-happiness-purchase-an-experience/) than spending money on material goods. I don’t know if this is always the case, but at least I can attest to this! I sold all my belongings three years ago to begin traveling the world…and haven’t stopped since. And I think I’m pretty darn happy.
- The couple that travels together, stays together. According to The Examiner (http://www.examiner.com/article/studiy-shows-health-wellness-relationship-benefits-of-travel-effect), “Couples who travel together believe that travel positively impacts their relationship in a number of different ways, from increasing their intimacy to increasing their chances of staying together for the long-run.” I think there’s something to this! My partner and I met years ago in Chile, and then started traveling the world together. Since then, we’ve hit a bunch of countries, and lived through some pretty crazy things. And just last month, we tied the knot!
- Austrian citizens are guaranteed a legal minimum of 22 paid vacation days and 13 paid holidays each year. Oh, if only the United States would do the same! We might be more refreshed, and less worked-to-death…(http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2013/06/08/countries-most-vacation-days/2400193/)
- Honolulu is the only place in the entire USA with a palace. Originally the home of the monarchs when Hawaii was a sovereign nation, the last resident heir, King Kalakaua, was nicknamed “The Merrie Monarch” for his penchant for world travel, fun parties, and music and dancing. (http://www.creators.com/lifestylefeatures/travel/travel-and-adventure/touring-iolani-palace-the-only-royal-palace-on-u-s-soil.html) Sounds like my kind of guy! Too bad he died in 1891—I would have loved to hang with him.
