Today Show contributor, AARP Sex and Relationship Ambassador, and best-selling author Pepper Schwartz has teamed up with Janet Lever (former coauthor of Glamour's Sex and Health column) to create a guidebook to the world's sexiest destinations. Along with the detail-rich text on their top 75 picks, the authors make a solid case for why traveling together is an important factor in improving -- and sustaining -- the romance in our lives. This witty, helpful book also dishes the dirt on how to pick the right destinations, why travel can rekindle sparks, tricks and tips for passion, and ways to constructively negotiate with your significant other about vacation plans.
