Spectral Blog tour: Author guest post: Top 10 romantic places to rendezvous

As part of the Spectral Blog Tour, I'd like to welcome the author of the book, Shannon Duffy to my blog today.

When I first came across the book I was immediately intrigued, especially when I read the description of the main character that has to travel around the globe with her family, in much the same way that gypsies do.

Now as someone with a keen interest in travel, the idea of being nomadic and travelling from place to place is incredibly appealing to me, and it's with this in mind that I've asked the author to do a guest post in which she'd share to the 10 romantic places she'd send her two lead characters (Jewel and Roman) to.

But first, for those who don't know what the book is about, check out the summary below.
About the book:
Convinced she’s a part of the witness protection program, sixteen-year-old Jewel Rose is shuffled around the globe with her family like a pack of traveling gypsies.

After arriving at lucky home twenty-seven, she stumbles upon a mysterious boy with magical powers claiming to be her guardian . . . and warning of imminent danger.

Despite the obvious sparks between them, Jewel discovers a relationship is forbidden, and the more she learns about dark, brooding Roman, she begins to question who she can even believe — the family who raised her, or the supposed sworn protector who claims they’ve been lying to her all along.

As she struggles to uncover who her family has really been running from, she is forced to hide her birthmark that reveals who she is.

With new realities surfacing, unexplained powers appearing, and two tempting boys vying for her heart, Jewel battles to learn who she can trust in an ever growing sea of lies, hoping she’ll make it through her seventeenth birthday alive.

Onto Shannon's guest post:

Here are the top 10 places Jewel and Roman would visit while on a romantic rendezvous together:

1.    Definitely all over Italy (Since they are both Italian and it is so romantic there). Also add in more gondola rides.

2.
    Paris. (I think it would have been a crime if Shannon hadn't included the romantic capital of the world, don't you?)

3.    A cabin in the woods with a crackling fire for alone time and hanging out.

4.    A warm beach anywhere.

5.    An old fashioned drive-in movie.

6.    To dinner and then the NBA finals. (Jewel likes sports).

7.    Niagara Falls—Canada.

8.   A private island. Hey, not only can they be romantic, but Jewel can practice some of her new skills.

9.    L.A.—cause it’s so beautiful and there’s so much they could do together there.
10.    A theme park with roller coasters followed by watching an amazing fireworks display.
