Romantic Comedy

A reporter running from love. A cruise ship director longing for home. Can a Christmas miracle help them build a relationship before the ship docks for the last time?

Natalie James will do anything to land a journalist job with her favorite travel magazine—even report on Toujour’s first ever singles cruise the week before Christmas. After a string of one-sided relationships, she’s ready for the escape of vacationing around the globe. Even if that means watching professional matchmakers help naïve couples fall in love on a special holiday trip.

Shawn Erickson has spent a decade wasting away as a specialty cruise director while coming to terms with the accident that cost him his military ambitions. But now he has a new dream—to open his own travel agency with the bonus he’ll get from hosting Toujour.

Orgasm is one of society’s most compelling, shaping forces—and most of us probably think that we are living in its golden age. But are we? The history of orgasms is as elusive as the orgasm itself can be, for sex rarely makes the historical record.

Now acclaimed British journalist Jonathan Margolis delivers the definitive history of the human orgasm, of sex for pleasure as well as conception—from prehistory to Viagra. Most people manage just twelve minutes of orgasmic bliss per year. Some never experience it at all. Yet the urge for orgasm rules much of human life, across national and cultural boundaries.
