    I’d like to be almost anywhere but here! A beach in Mexico, with a cabana boy, would be LOVELY! Also, I wouldn’t argue with Hawaii… especially if I could just happen to run into Alex O’Loughlin while there! Can’t wait for this book, Jaci!!! πŸ™‚

    DiDi says:

    my fantasy summer get away is a trip to a private island with my own personal Cabana Boy and my Kindle, no telephones, no TV =)

    Tiss says:

    I would like to be somewhere cool, Hawaii would work. Would like to go with friends, as hubby isn’t a fun person and he’d not want to do everything that I would, LOL.

    Fantasy summer getaway destination? I think I’d be quite happy along the coast somewhere in Tuscany. A nice little villa to stay in… gelato any time I wanted it…

    Lori Tassie says:

    I’d like to be up North in the Maskokas, sitting by the water having a cup of coffee and listening to the loons. sigh……

    Kim says:

    My ideal getaway. Hmmmm, well, it would probably be somewhere tropical. White sand beaches with bluish green water that goes on forever. There are little huts that dot the beach, not too close together, giving privacy when needed. Palm trees sway in the constant ocean breeze, so even though it’s warm, it’s not unbearable. On my “fantasy island”, there are scantily-clad men, who all, by the way, are built like your cover models (ROFL) and are there to see to my every demand! On my island, food is pentiful and has NO calories. I also look fantastic in a bikini (OK, a bit too much with that, I know). Thanks for the distraction this Monday!!!

    Ren says:

    Since I live outside USA and at tropical country, everyday is hot, even now is dry season. I will always go to beach. And my dreams is one day I’ll go to Bali :D. Would love to win this yummilicious book, Jaci!

    Lois M. says:

    I sure would prefer to be up on the space shuttle right now, especially since it’s the last ever… but if I can’t have that, well, okay, Mars is choice two. But on Earth – anywhere there is snow! LOL

    Danielle West says:

    I would totally love being in Scotland during the summer! It is hot as… or humid like it is here in the Midwest and the scenery is soooo pretty (so I’ve seen from pics). But really, anywhere but the heat would be my dream destination!
    P.S. I cannot wait for this book to come out!!!

    BarbaraV says:

    Egypt. I love the desserts and a hot weather. A private tent just for me and my hubbie for a week, away from reality what else could I wish for.

  12. 12
    Annie says:

    Ideal destination spot? Hmmm, I’ll have to go with Greece! I’ve been wanting to go there for awhile! Beautiful scenery, good food and hot men! What more could you want?

  13. 13
    Jean says:

    I’m in Texas, and I hate the heat. Thoughts naturally turn to Glacier National Park, Montana, Alaska, and Churchill, Manitoba for desirable vacation destinations. Far south in the Southern Hemisphere sounds pretty good, too, but I’ve never given it much thought. Maybe Antarctica?

  14. 14
    Rebecca Emin says:

    Somewhere beautiful with white sand, lapping waves, palm trees and a spa.

    Oh, and I’d like to go on my own. Just me, some books, and a notebook.

    StacieDM says:

    I went to Venice in October when it was cold and rainy. I would love to go back in the summertime. It was beautiful then but I’m sure it’s gorgeous now. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Dannielle says:

    I would love to go somewhere that would be warm but not unbearably hot and muggy. Big Bay in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is lovely.

  17. 17
    Shay says:

    I work for a call center (customer service) and we take calls for a company in Bermuda. I would just love to go there, they customers are nice and they say nice things about where they live even though “I live off the Island”.

  18. 18

    I would love to either go on a cruise somewhere or go to Atlantis so i can swim and play with the dolphins. I love dolphins and have always had a dream to do that. So i told hubby my goal is to do that before i die. lol So now time to start saving for Atlantis and hopefully in the next 5 years we can go. Fingers are crossed

  19. 19
    Deborah R says:

    since this is a “fantasy” getaway it would have to be somewhere tropical with one of the guys from your books! lol loved Perfect Play.

    bianca thaci says:

    I’m not much of a sun person..but I would like to go to one of those ΓΌber-luxurious Hotels in Bali, on Bali? Saw a documentary about this one place on TV on Saturday…hmhmhmhm
    But since I don’t like the heat too much I think I would like to try Alaska in a Motorhome :o)

  21. 21
    catherine says:

    i would have to say the beach house, bc if it get any hotter, i have the water right there when i need it. and its sooo nice to look at night time to. o and swimming at night is awsome. hint hint jk. but i would def pic a place that have a beach 24/7

    Theresa N. says:

    I beg your pardon, mama, what did you say?
    My mind was drifting off on Martinique Bay.
    It’s not that I’m not interested, you see;
    Augusta(Quitman), Georgia is just no place to be.

    I think Jamaican in the moonlight.
    Sandy beaches, drinking rum every night.
    We got no money, mama, but we can go;
    We’ll split the difference, go to Coconut Grove.

    ……..oops got lost in a song by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, but, eh, yeah, uhm, Jamaica!? *smiles*

  23. 23
    Barbara W. says:

    I’m finished with going to hot places where I have to sweat and worry about sunburn. πŸ™‚ Maybe Melbourne – it shouldn’t be that bad this time of year and I’ve always wanted to go in the vain hope that I’ll run into Eric Bana wearing nothing but low-rise jeans.

    I’m a dreamer.

  24. 24
    Annie Nolan says:

    Well my dream vacation would be to go back to the Bahamas with my honey and 2 kids. I went there for the first time on deployment so I really only got to look at it from the pier and I always promised myself when I got off active duty from the Navy I would find my way back!!

  25. 25
    Kelly Boyce says:

    My ideal summer getaway would be a secluded beachfront cottage with free WiFi. It would be sunny every day and a pleasant 75 degrees with a gentle breeze. Maybe once a month there’d be a gigantic (non destructive) thunder and lightning storm through the night.

  26. 26

    My fantasy getaway would have to be Odessa in the Ukraine. Why the Ukraine? Well I study Russian and Eastern European history in university and according to all my profs, Odessa is absolutely beautiful. I would just love to go to a place that is so integral to Russian history. I know, it’s kinda weird…

  27. 27
    Siobhan M. says:

    My fantasy summer getaway would be the Pacific Northwest – why? Summer is the only time they get sunshine, but what glorious sunshine it is. Everything is green, lush, and there are plenty of environments to enjoy; beaches, mountains, rolling plains, deep forests. Wonderful.

  28. 28
    Jeanne S. says:

    I would love to go to Fiji or Tahiti and stay in one of the huts that is out over the water with the glass floors!! Ah, I can feel the ocean breezes now! I will be reading my kindle!!
    Sitting on a Hawaiian beach watching the best waves EVER to swell and roll onto the beach! They are so calming and graceful to watch. Nothing better!! Well almost nothing! *wink*

  29. 29
    pdickson says:

    I was born and raised in Hawaii and now I live down south…so if I could be any where I would love to be back home with my family in Hawaii. I’m homesick. Plus there is nothing better for your soul than a hearty dose of vitamin SEA!!!!

    Thanks for the awesome contest Jaci!

  30. 30
    Alicia says:

    A private tropical island (with comfy mid-80’s temps and a breeze) where I can spend the entire time almost completely UNPLUGGED (no laptop, no Blackberry, except I WILL need my Kindle) except for an ice cold Diet Coke in one hand and Changing the Game in the other! πŸ™‚

  31. 31
    Kellie Stubbs says:

    I wanna go anywhere with an accent. Ireland, Scotland, England, Italy, etc

  32. 32
    Elizabeth B says:

    My fantasy getaway would be Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The beach, tequila and Mexican food. What could be bad?

  33. 33
    Tina Dudley says:

    OMG where wouldn’t I like to go? I loved going to England and I didn’t get to stay long enough so would love to go back. Also would love to go back to Germany where I spent about 3 years when dad was stationed there when I was little. As a teacher I love to travel during the summer but haven’t done it in a long while πŸ™

  34. 34
    Shelly Estes says:

    I would love to visit Scotland and Ireland. That is my all-time biggest dream vacation!! Can’t wait to read Gavin’s story! I loved Mick’s!!

  35. 35
    Sheri Moore says:

    I’m odd, my dream getaway is not a warm tropical place. It would be in the forests of northern Michigan or Canada on a lake. No neighbors only wildlife, for about a week. I must have electricity and indoor plumbing though.

  36. 36
    Kiru Taye says:

    I’d love to visit the beautiful island of Mauritius – sun, sea and sand, a perfect combination.

  37. 37
    Ruth Smithson says:

    I would love to go to Alaska to visit Anchorage and Bethel. I would go fishing and camping. By going in the summer it will be warm and not be too cold. πŸ™‚

  38. 38
    Tamara Hoffa says:

    On a cruise ship headed for Grand Cayman. My favorite vacation spot, beautiful blue ocean, swimming with the stingrays, snorkeling! Ugh! Now I’m depressed. Stuck in TN with a heat index of 110 today!

  39. 39
    Kim Stapleton says:

    Anywhere but here would be great, as long as it is cool, cold, or colder. It is hot enough to fry eggs on the sidewalk. A lake or river in the middle of nowhere would be great, Alaska would be better.

  40. 40

    Doesn’t Johnny Depp have a private island somewhere? I’d like to go there, just the two of us relaxing on the beach staring out at the ocean blue while drinking a cold beverage. Maybe I can convince him to put on his pirates costume too. πŸ˜‰

  41. 41
    Tracy says:

    Hmm where would I like to be? That’s a good question. I’d probably like to go to Israel. Its been my dream to go there and finally have an understand of what the heck I am reading about in the Bible. Such a rich place with awesome history!

  42. 42
    Melody says:

    My perfect vacation getaway would be someplace along the southern ocean shore for about a month…private poolside during the day but long walks along the beach at night. And the temperature would not be overly hot but just right. I don’t like suffocating heat.

  43. 43
    Becky says:

    Oooooh! I’d love to go to France! That would be amazing.

  44. 44
    Alice says:

    I would LOVE to go to Ireland. With lots of hot Irishmen to be at my beck and call!

  45. 45
    Patty B says:

    My fantasy summer get away would have to be Carmel , Ca
    My husband would be golfing at Pebble Beach while I am relaxing and reading
    Preferably the ARC of Changing The Game πŸ™‚

  46. 46
    Amanda says:

    I have 3 places I would LOVE to be…Greece and Paris in the summertime! I went to Paris in Feb, and it was gorgeous, but I always want to see places like this in the summer. Last place – Belize city. It’s officially on the bucket list.

  47. 47
    Andrea Kerr says:

    Anywhere here on the East Coast on the ocean…Maine to Florida is beautiful. I love the ocean…Never been to the West Coast…maybe someday!!!

  48. 48
    Julie says:

    I think I would like to go to Alaska. I think it would be pretty and much cooler than Missouri. Or even San Francisco. I love the weather there this time of year.

  49. 49
    amanda irizarry says:

    i would love to be on the beaches of puerto rico right now. to feel the warm clear blue water on my feet while i stroll down the white sandy beaches listening to the sounds of the tropic animals while sippin on some fresh coconut water…..thats my idea of a vacation!

  50. 50
    Colleen K. says:

    I would love to go to Ireland, New Zealand, and Greece. Always wanted to visit.

  51. 51
    Debbie Talbot says:

    I would love to go to a nice beach somewhere like the Greece , or Italy or somewhere in South America. I would want to go somewhere with some resort so that I can be waited on for a few days, then I want to go somewhere to a little house on the beach with no one around but me and my Hubby

  52. 52
    Claire Admire says:

    I’d love to go to Alaska. Take a cruise one way and the train around the countryside. It would be so beautiful.

  53. 53
    Joanne says:

    I’m not a person who enjoys the heat very much so my dream getaway would be a vacation in the Scottish Highlands. Maybe a tour of the Whiskey Trail to have a few wee drams.

  54. 54
    Joel Donnelly says:

    I would love to go to an exclusive private island where I could left alone by the hub bub of work, family and traffic. Besides skinny dipping with my hubby wouldn’t be to back either.

  55. 55
    Amanda Cantu says:

    My fantasy getaway vacay would be somewhere tropical that I haven’t been to…example Fiji. Laying in a hammock, with a nice cool drink and a good book(s) just to chill out, read and hear the waves. PICK ME!!! PICK ME!!!

  56. 56
    Myranda says:

    I’m in Oklahoma too and I”m melting! I’d love to go to Europe: Ireland, Scotland, England, Italy, France…you name it! I bet it would be cooler in Ireland!

  57. 57
    TigMode says:

    I’d go back to Ireland, somewhere along the Ring of Kerry, in a thatched cottage overlooking the Atlantic. With my hubby. πŸ™‚

  58. 58
    Pam Hager says:

    I would love to go to Greece & see the sites & the beautiful ocean & scenery

  59. 59
    Trish says:

    A private island somewhere, with just me and my sweetie. Of course people to wait on us hand and foot. Just anywhere really, away from the kids, work, laundry and everyday life. Somewhere to just let out a deep sigh and relax.

  60. 60
    Lori says:

    I’m in Chicago and it is too hot here as well. Gah, I’d much rather be at a beach house on either coast. Swimming, boating, reading, drinking, and eating seafood. Oh yeah, the kids would be at home in Chicago with family and me and the hubby alone! πŸ™‚

  61. 61
    Prue says:

    Oh Scotland was my place and I made it here this year. Sadly I wouldn’t mind a warm not rainy beachside destination at the moment though. Can’t wait for the mew book. Will this series be getting released on kindle or ebook in the future?

  62. 62
    Moran says:

    Since I live in Israel and summer here is really really hot and humid (and it’s like 6 months long) my fantasy summer getaway destination will have to be somewhere cooler like Sweden or Norway.
    I keep saying that if I’ll ever win the lottery I’ll buy a summer house in a cold country so I won’t have to melt during summer in Israel LOL

  63. 63
    Dottie says:

    I would love to go to Italy or Key West

  64. 64
    Emily W says:

    Right now I wanna say somewhere cold where I can curl up by a fire with a salted carmel hot chocolate. As far as travel goes I would love to go to Greece or I have always wanted to go to Japan in March to see the Cherry Blossoms.

    • 64.1
      Amy says:

      Hah..had to smile at the salted caramel part…my new favorite thing..salted caramel mochas…man, that makes me happy:)

  65. 65
    Amber says:

    I live in OK too so I know how you feel! My dream getaway would be Ireland or Scotland. Somewhere beautiful and green and not a hundred and ten degrees every stinking day πŸ˜€

  66. 66
    Amy says:

    I’m a mom of 3 in a housefull of testosterone..I dream of getaway with my girlies. Would love to go to Mexico..or just about anywhere where we can kick back, enjoy some cocktails (yes, plural), and some sun/fun….ahhhh:) Peace and quiet..that would be lovely…

  67. 67
    Maria S (pronounced Mariah) says:

    I live in Texas so I am right there with you! As I haven’t been on vacation in years and my truck was broken into this past Friday and my purse (with my wallet and kindle in it) stolen out of it it doesn’t look Iike I will be making it again this year…but if I could… I would love to go to a resort anywhere that was kid friendly and slurge on my daughters! They totally deserve it! And while there hopefully get some much needed alone time with my wonderful husband!

  68. 68
    Alina D says:

    I love my kids, they are my world. But my dream vacation would be a topical island with just me and my hubby. No kids, lol! We never had a honeymoon so it could double as a really late honeymoon and an awesome break for just the two of us. I just wanna sit on a beach with a fruity drink and a good book. That would be heaven!

  69. 69
    Jamie B says:

    Ohh I want to travel around the U.S to all the states that have beautiful scenery. I have only ever been to KY, TN & IN. Along the way I want to stay in hotels that have pools so I can lay poolside and read.

  70. 70
    Jessie says:

    I would love to spend the entire summer on the beach somewhere. It doesn’t really matter where as long as there is sand and the ocean!

  71. 71
    Kendra Ogles says:

    I would rather be camping up north in Michigan – Manistee to be exact. It’s my favorite summertime place. πŸ˜€

    P.S. I started reading The Perfect Play today and I LOVE it πŸ˜€

  72. 72

    Perfect Vacation would have to be Hawaii for sure… SO can’t wait to go back..

    But the perfect stay-cation would have to be in the middle of a lake sitting on my boat….

  73. 73
    Natasha A. says:

    My dream vacation, either summer or not, is to go to Tahiti. I want to spend at least one night in one of those little huts that sits over/on the water.

  74. 74
    tammy ramey says:

    i would like to be on one of the little islands in either Fiji or Tahiti, one without to many tourist but that has those wonderful rooms that are actually out over the water.

  75. 75
    Morgiana says:

    the perfect getaway…hmmm…discover the Yosemite National Park, with a hottie, like Gavin, THAT would be awesome!

  76. 76
    Christina R. says:

    Mine will probably be the least exotic but really, I’d love a full week getaway with my friends. We don’t have to go to an exotic location just good books, good food and lots of laughter and friendship. No work, no kids, no husband, just a week with the girls being girls. That would me my ideal summer get away. Because sometimes mommies and wives NEED to get a little vacation too.

    Congrats on Changing The Game and it’s upcoming release!!!

  77. 77
    Felicia Miller says:

    My fantasy getaway would be to a cottage in Ireland. Plenty of books to keep me company, stocked cabinets and no form of communication to interrupt my bliss. Nice long walks in the countryside. Naps in the daytime and not because I’m exhausted from doing too much. Just because I’m relaxed and at peace. No pressures, no annoying people.

  78. 78
    Bridget says:

    Some place north. Alaska, Minnesota, Canada, some place cooler then here in Kansas. Yesterday was 111, WTF, and not dry heat like Arizona!

  79. 79
    Laurie Kap says:

    Fantasy summer or anytime get-away would be Italy. Vencenza specifically since it’s close to the Alps and always a bit cooler than the southern areas. But honestly, anywhere in Italy would be fine with me.

    YAY! can’t wait for this book to release!

  80. 80
    Alexandrea Ward says:

    First I just wanted to say congratulations on the soon to be release of Changing the Game! For me, a great summer getaway would be to a place that’s warm and where I could relax by myself or with friends. Like Jamaica, Hawaii, southern California, a quiet area in Florida even.

  81. 81
    Angela Pascoe says:

    A deserted island with nothing but men to take care of me!!! Ok seriously I would love a deserted island but with my family and that my kids don’t fight at all πŸ™‚

  82. 82
    Renee S says:

    Since I live in oregon…. driving up the eastern coast line would b ultimate to see the other side of the US from tropical to Outter banks n Niagara all. The way up…. but must say corpus christie tx has beautiful white sand beaches … some day would like to return again!!

  83. 83
    Kendra S. says:

    I would love love LOVE to go to Greece! Either that or Australia. Australia seems like more of a summer kind of vacation to me but I just love looking at pictures of Greece. Though, the accents in Australia are enough that I wouldn’t even care about sightseeing if I could get a hot man to talk to me the whole time:)

  84. 84
    Jordan H. says:

    My favorite summer getaway is my family’s cabin in Pt. Roberts, Washington. Since it’s close to the ocean, it always has a nice breeze and better weather then at home.

  85. 85

    I’d love to go to Australia – although it’s winter there now… Well, maybe that is a good idea! It’s 91 here ( feels about 110 with the humidity) in Central Illinois.

    A beach anywhere sounds lovely. As long as I didn’t have to work, I’d be a happy camper.


  86. 86

    Anywhere quiet, comfortable, and well-stocked with food, books, and DH πŸ˜‰

    Hmmm…Anywhere in the world? I’d want to go back to Ireland for a long stretch.

    My ideal vacation, though, is a nice place to stay, a ton of books, a bunch of knitting and a body of water nearby. And I’ll be doing just that for an ENTIRE MONTH this summer. The upside to being unemployed: Long vacations.

    Jen J. says:

    Ooo, a vacation to a tropical secluded place would be a dream! I’d have to say Hawaii or maybe Austrailia…a nice cozy cottage with a private beach!
    And no humidity like is hanging around in the air here in Massachusetts!

    Tanya M. says:

    Lisa B says:

    I’m going to say Florida. Mostly because i don’t get to take vacations and florida sounds pretty good. lol My husband was in Oklahoma the other day and talking about it being around 100 degrees. He’s a over the road truck driver. Here’s in Michigan we got few days in the 100’s recently but not every day. Stay cool Jaci!

    ohh, I would love one of those islands where it’s just you and a hut. people boat in your groceries when you need them.

  126. 126
    Tara Stearns says:

    Ooooh, I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii. But, to be a real fantasy it would not be a family vacay. Just me and my husband – while my kids are being spoiled and taken good care of by their grandma, of course.

  127. 127
    Linda Fitzpatrick says:

    I would have to say Australia’s White Haven Beach, it is part of the Great Barrier Reef and the sand is sooo white that it is blinding. I have been there and it is quiet, relaxing and a good place to take a book to read πŸ™‚

  128. 128

    On the low side, gimme a lounge chair, a book, a beverage and no children. On the high side, I’d like an island, a bed, open windows, dinner for two and my husband. πŸ™‚

    Gayle Hudson says:

    Hey Jaci! Thanks for the contest!

    I honestly would love to be in the Pacific Northwest (Washington or Oregon) touring the mountains and moss forests. It is so beautiful there!

    Kelley Starnes says:

    I would go anywhere but here in Atlanta where it is literally 100 degrees!!! Antarctica sounds pretty good to me about now. Anywhere where its cool and I can have my iPad to read. Just me and my book with no disturbances. Ahhh… that sounds like pure Heaven. πŸ˜‰

  131. 131
    Liza says:

    It is currently hotter than the hinges of hades in Nashville. I’d love to get away on an island with a breeze, an umbrella to keep me from getting burned, a pile of books next to me, and a super hot cabana boy to bring me cold beer and keep me in sunscreen (burned at the beach 2 weeks ago under an umbrella).

  132. 132
    Paula Abel says:

    We have a little holiday place right on a river. You stick your lawn chair in the river. Grab a drink and a book. It is my little slice of heaven. πŸ™‚

    Michelle Nelson says:

    Oh the ideas!!! Lol!!! I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii and Alaska, but I would have to say my absolute DREAM getaway would have to be the land down under..both Australia and New Zealand….I have a pen pal in Australia that I’ve known for 20+ years and one of my best friends from high school met her love online and moved down there…….so I have two reasons to go there! πŸ™‚

    I would love to win this arc. This book is very popular – over 100 entries. Loved the first one in this series – I love sports stories.

    Erika says:

    I would love to be somewhere on the beach right now. Actually, anywhere with water and a margarita would be amazing.

  141. 141
    Amber E. says:

    Like you my fantasy summer getaway destination would either be Hawaii or Atlantis – Paradise Island, Bahamas. I have always wanted to go to both of those places, especially with it being so hot where I live. I would love to be buy an ocean!

  142. 142
    Mariee says:

    I’d love to be on a beach somewhere, either Hawaii or Fiji would be nice.

  143. 143
    Lindsey Hutchison says:

    oh my thats a hard one considering i have a list lets see fantasy summer getaway would be either touring the greek islands visiting there beaches scoping out the guys and exploring. or heading to Italy and exploring my roots while learning the history and enjoying the sites, guys, food, wine and grabbing pictures

  144. 144

    On the mega yacht Chevy Toy, cruising the Mediterranean and watching the lights of Monaco glitter on the water at night. I wouldn’t even need to go ashore. The yacht has everything and I’d be happy just lounging around on it, enjoying warm but not hot temps and writing like a fiend in the inspiration rich environment. *sigh*

  145. 145
    Sandi says:

    This will sound so hillbilly… but I’d love to be in West Virginia right now. It’s one of the prettiest places I’ve seen. A secluded cabin, a cool mountain stream, and a hot guy.

  146. 146

    My favorite getaway would have to be a beach by a lovely blue ocean. In this fantasy, I’m wearing a stunning bikini and actually have some sort of a chest with which to fill the cups of the top. Also, the sun is shining, but I don’t need to reapply sunblock every hour on the hour to maintain my vampire-esque glow. Fruity drinks will served by good looking men who don’t look like they’re barely legal.

  147. 147
    tori says:

    I would love to be on a sailboat right now. With no phone or computer. Just me, my e reader, and a cool breeze.

    chey says:

    My fantasy summer vacation would be in Scotland!

  149. 149
    Sarah says:

    I love spending time in the mountains of Wyoming every summer. Life in the city gets hectic and busy, but when we’re out there it’s *so* quiet and the pace is much easier. And that, of course, leaves me more time for reading romances. πŸ™‚

  150. 150
    Amy says:

    I would actually love to be somewhere cool, like Canada! But I’d also love to go to Tahiti because it seems so beautiful.

  151. 151
    Heather says:

    I would love to be on a beach somewhere with either my Nook or a big pile of books. I would have nothing to do but read all day.

    Sherie says:

    I love the Beach! My ultimate dream destination is Bora Bora and have my own Couples Retreat. Minus the sharks and lots of waterfalls!

  153. 153
    Sarah says:

    Ireland . . . if not Ireland then Prince Edward Island or Alaska.

  154. 154
    Michelle Boone says:

    My perfect vacation would be right where I am. I’m on a gorgeous beach in Brainerd MN called Breezy Point. The weather was sunny and 80′ with a breeze. I have my kindle and my son gets to fish for walleye. Life is good;))

  155. 155
    Leslie says:

    It’s hot here in Arizona so I would love to get out of the heat and go on a cruise to Alaska.

    Serena jones says:

    I would love to be many places, but I love Oklahoma. I love being here with my husban and kids. Just wish we had some rain so we could head to foss lake or maybe quartz moutain to boat, ski, and swim!!

    BookHookah says:

    Deborah Vick says:

    My fantasy summer getaway would be a white sand beach, turquoise blue ocean waters, cool breeze, fruity drinks with umbrellas, hot cabana boys and lots of tanned, sexy male flesh to touch, taste and explore. LOL Seriously!

  159. 159
    Linda says:

    I live on a tropical island & get sun, sea & beaches everyday! I got it all! LOL. Maybe someplace like Scotland for a change of scenery. I’ve been reading too many books with dishy Highlanders methinks.

    Penny says:

    Hawaii! I know that it is kind of a tried and true place for a vacation but I would love to go there with my husband for a week. Ahhh the thought of no kids a nice warm beach and a Margarita in hand…my happy place πŸ™‚

    somewhere warm, next to a drink with an umbrella, catching up on my TBR pile.

    WendyK says:

    My dream summer destination? Actually if I could go anywhere I’d probably like to just stay at our place at the beach for all summer. No cooking, little cleaning, and it’s always so very relaxing.


  163. 163
    Jeanne says:

    I worked in the Bahamas on Paradise Island years ago for Club Med and I would love to go back, except this time I’d go to the Atlantis. My dream beach destination, however, would be the Tahitian islands, but since it’s on the other side of the equator, our winter is their summer so I’d be flip flopping vacation time. I’d also love to see St. Bart’s and, of course, return to my favorite city, Paris.

    The clear, warm water of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Aaahhh….

    I would love to go to Ireland on a summer trip. Until that happens I will spend my summers making frequent trips to the beach for the weekend (it’s a 2 hour drive) or in San Francisco which is our families favorite city by the bay. πŸ™‚

  167. 167
    Amy V says:

    I would love to go to Hawaii. You can do it all there–surf, swim, hike. Plus it has some beautiful scenery, including Alex O’Loughlin.

  168. 168

    I am so excited about this book…thanks for the chance to win an ARC. If I don’t win…I guess it’s not that long until it’s out.

    Anyhoo…just coming out of a power outage where I could see the tweet that there was an arc but couldn’t submit my answer while being hot as all hell I am going to say that my fantasy summer getaway destination would be Ibiza. I saw it once on a reality show – Temptation Island and it was so beautiful. I always wanted to go and enjoy the warm temps and the cool water.

    I guess I could get that at any beach but hey you said fantasy right? Thanks for sharing your gift of great stories with your readers.

    Can I come stay with you? It’s dropping below 0C where I live at night and not getting much warmer of a day either. *shiver* If we did a house swap you’d cool off real quick.

  170. 170
    Terri says:

    To me a fantasty summer vacation would be one where I can have the whole summer off to travel. We’d get in the RV, hook up the trailer with the bike and take off. I’d like to see the Dakotas, Alaska and hit Sturgis. I want to visit the wine country in California and see friends that I only know from online. I don’t want to have to rush and I want enough money so we don’t have to stress if something breaks or we want to eat out.

    cayenne says:

    I would be thrilled to go to Hawaii any time of the year, but in the summer, I’d love to go to the southwest of England (Somerset/Devon/Cornwall/Dorset) – it’s a gorgeous place and everywhere is less than 100 miles from a beach.

  178. 178

    Well my dream vacation would consist of being in the mountains in an out-of-way cabin. The cabin would have a huge porch overlooking the beautiful scenery & fully equipped with comfortable lounging seats so that I could read all day long! Being surrounded by peace & quiet is so ideal for me!!!

  179. 179

    Oh gosh, my ideal vacation spot is Bora Bora…. I see the pictures and just sigh that I want to photoshop myself in the pictures… It is gorgeous.
    And also, I need to keep the family together – hence that is why I need this book…. the other book is lonely, lol….
    Please count me in!

    My fastasy getaway Hmmm…. would have to be either Fiji or the Greek Islands. Because, when I think of these two places first thing that comes to mind is… Relaxing and Beautiful! The white beaches, perfect blue water,and when your setting there and your first thought is “It doesn’t get any better than this” then you know your having a Awesome getaway! Can’t wait for “Changing The Game” to come out Jaci, counting down the days! πŸ™‚

    Kerry P says:

    In mid-August, when the heat from the city (I live just north of Boston)is pressing down on us, I pack up the kids and head north to the White Mountains of NH. We have a cabin, on the side of a mountain, off a dirt road, no cell phones, no computers, no video games just lots of fresh air, family time, and peace & quiet. AAAHHH! Ideal for our crazy busy life. So i get my dream vacation every year! Is it August yet???????

  189. 189
    Mary G says:

    I’d like to go back to the lake where we spent our honeymoon. I still remembers the soothing sounds of the loons. It was so quiet you could hear clear across the lake. Then I realized they could hear us honeymooners too LOL.

    well, for me no other place compares to Creta, Greece with its amazing beaches and hospitality. So, this is the perfect place for vacation!

  194. 194

    I live in Hawaii, so the beach is just a drive away for me, I have always wanted to trek my way through Europe via bus and some flying. Starting off in Ireland, then making my way to the United Kingdom, then to Germany, France and then to Italy. To experience the different cultures, see the sites, eat the food, and take lot and lots of pic would be a dream come true.
