Happy Wednesday! The Risky Release Party continues as Charlene Sands and I are teaming up to celebrate our same titled books. Details on the giveaways below…

Charlene and I both married our high school sweethearts. (Another coincidence!) And both our guys are adventurous. So when it comes to dates—and between us there have been thousands—we decided we might have some expertise.

Top 15 Dates definitely WORTH THE RISK…

1. Swim with sharks. (Kidding. We just had to throw that in there.)
2. Spend the day at an amusement park and ride the rollercoasters. We realize this may cause some wooziness, but then you get to lay your head on your honey’s shoulder and lean into him (or her) while you walk around.
3. Take a hike. The less travelled path, the better. There are more opportunities to get frisky that way.

4. Go to the multiplex movie theater spontaneously and watch the movie that’s playing right now. You may be pleasantly surprised.
5. Take a surfing lesson. It doesn’t matter if you stand up or not, the fun you’ll have trying will translate to fun when the lesson is over.
6. Eat dinner at a tiny little dive. The kind where you imagine the line is usually out the door and you have to stand to eat.
7. Go hot air ballooning. Okay, so neither of us has done this one, but we really want to!
8. Swim in a freezing cold body of water. Bonus points if there’s a waterfall. Just think how much fun you’ll have warming up afterward.

9. Rent a scary movie and curl up on the couch to watch it. In the dark. When you cling to your guy out of fear, he’ll be oh so willing to create different kinds of tingles.
10. Dive. Scuba or sky. We’ve only done one of these, but the other is on our bucket list. (Okay, it’s only on Robin’s.)
11. Park the car. View. No view. Doesn’t matter. Your eyes should only be on each other. Proceed at your own comfortable heat level. ☺
12. Ride a horse and a cowboy (just kidding!) preferably on the beach, but mountain trail rides are very romantic too.
13 Wine taste at a local winery and enjoy the ambience, or if you’re not in grape country, have a wine tasting party for two at home.
14. Kiss a frog… you never know, he may turn into your prince. :)
15. Read a Romance… together!! (It can lead to great things!)

  1. Why not swim with sharks?! We actually have an aquarium not too far away where you can ;) What a coinkidink to have two books with the same name. Best of luck to you both. And many, many, many sales :)

      Hi Tuere! You know, in an aquarium, I think I may be able to do a little swimming with the sharks. Thanks so much for best wishes!

    Hi Robin! I did everything except post a review on Monday, so didn’t do any of that today.

    I loved your list of 15 things. I can identify with quite a few of them. I don’t really care what my DH and I do as long as we are together and are law abiding.

    Being together is meaningful and when time is precious I enjoy walking in the mountains or a tea at a quiet cafe.

    Some unique ideas. As I told Charlene at her blog the riskiest date event was actually dating the date :)

    Many dates were nightmare dates. Left in the car to wait hours etc. Now I am settled and happy. A date can be a trip to a lovely place, a beach is the best.

  6. Fantastic list! Now I feel like going on an adventure!

    Let’s see…dates I’ve had that were worth the risk? I’ve gone white water rafting with, uh, a few different guys. Hubby took me rock climbing and rappelling, which was scary but also a huge rush. He also taught me how to mountain bike.

    Though the riskiest thing I ever did on a date was meet some guys from the internet. Some of them were great. Some of them? Well, didn’t get my home number OR my address. ;-)
