For more information visit http://bookstogonow.blogspot.com. 

It seems all my favorite summer memories involve escaping the heat with nature’s diverse environments – lakes, rivers, mountains. I have many fond memories of kicking back with friends and family amid stunning mountain scenery of tall pines, streams fed with snow-runoff, crystal-clear ice-cold lakes and elk, deer and moose grazing in open meadows. Days were spent exploring the back roads and trails on horseback, on foot or by four-wheeler and fishing, but the nights sitting around the campfire were magic. With the only light coming from the fire, moon and stars the scene is set for romance and snuggling with your sweetie, relaxing and sharing stories with the important people in your life.  
 

Find out which environment is best for escaping the heat and finding love, the jungle in Marked in Mexico, the desert in Desperate Dreams or the high mountains in Big Horn Storm.
