You get to go on a fantasy date! Imagine… Where would you go? What would you do? Who would you be with? Go ahead! Let your mind run wild. Well, maybe not too wild! 😉
Does your fantasy date include a beach? Seems to be a popular and swoony place for romance. Hmm… A tropical breeze, turquoise water, waves gently rolling onto shore, bare feet in the warm sand. Maybe there’s champagne and chocolate, and a kaleidoscope sunset for you and your sweetheart—or at least a pretty pair of frozen drinks with tiny umbrellas!
While beaches are certainly beautiful, my fantasy date happens to be kind of opposite. I’d take a sunny, blue-sky day in the Rocky Mountains, a hike to a beautiful view, a yummy picnic among the wildflowers (with country ham and brie sandwiches and Diet Coke!), and my superhero husband making me laugh and holding my hand. Sounds like paradise to me.
But this is about you! Now that you’ve got your fantasy date in mind, imagine that you can only go if you agree to have it recorded on camera. Yep, like The Bachelor, only it’s you this time! Your date is going to be on national television, or used as part of an advertising campaign and shown over and over and over again. Eeep!
In my latest sweet romance, The Marriage Match, that’s exactly the situation I put my hero in. He’s a sexy business tycoon who’s sincerely looking for a wife, and a way to advertise his family’s chain of resorts. His CEO grandmother hatches a plan a la The Bachelor to accomplish both at once! Fantasy dates with girls she approves, on camera, surrounded by a production crew. What could possibly be more awkward for him? How about falling for a girl who’s not one of the bachelorettes? Now that’s a twist we haven’t seen on the show—yet!
Let’s get back to your fantasy date. Comment and tell me about it. Pretend it’s my treat—all expenses paid. Would you still want to go if it had to be on camera, especially if it was a first date and you were truly looking for love? I can’t wait to read your responses!

Hot bachelor seeks bride…
Resort tycoon Trent Hawthorne is looking for a wife. His all-business, no-nonsense grandmother (and the matriarch of the small town of Maple Creek) has selected three potential brides―all beautiful and approved. Each “fantasy date” will take place in a lush Caribbean setting, filmed like a reality show to promote the Hawthorne family’s chain of resorts. All of Trent’s hopes for love combined with a clever marketing gimmick…what could possibly go wrong?
As it turns out, all it takes is a kiss. A sizzling, sweet-as-sin kiss. But Cynthia Sawyer isn’t one of the bachelorettes, and she’s definitely not supposed to be making out with her boss’s sexy grandson. Not to mention it’s strictly against company policy. But Cynthia has her own reasons for hooking Trent up with a bride who isn’t her as soon as possible. And losing her heart is a price that she’s willing to pay…
