Couples Resorts get steamy between the covers

OCHO RIOS, Jamaica – YourNovel.com successfully continues sales of its personalized novel, “Jamaica Rendezvous: A Couples Ocho Rios Romance,” as Valentine’s Day 2007 draws near. The one of a kind romance novel, which debuted late last year, is set at Couples Ocho Rios, one of the beautiful, all-inclusive Couples Resorts in Jamaica. This year, the books are available in hardback or paperback with the additional option of adding a personal photo of the starring couple to the cover for a truly customized look.

YourNovel.com’s personalized romance novels place couples between the pages thanks to an online questionnaire of 26 personal details like names, hometown, places of work, eye and hair color, best friends, favorite music, favorite perfume and cologne, and how long they’ve been a couple.

The scene for the novel is set at Couples Ocho Rios, an all-inclusive resort catering exclusively to couples. The book begins with the featured couple arriving at the resort and falling in love with the romance-drenched property. Soon the couple is taught a valuable lesson in love, courtesy of an ocean treasure, and throughout the adventure, the twosome occupy loved-filled days with horseback rides on a former plantation, treks up Jamaica’s famous Dunn’s River Falls, snorkeling and sailing, while hot nights, exotic entertainment and passionate encounters combine to make a vacation worth reading about.

According to Randy Russell, Couples’ chief romance officer, “Starring in a Couples Ocho Rios romance novel is a wonderful memento for guests who stay at this resort and also for those who can’t wait before returning “home” to one of our other three resorts. If you can’t be there in body, be there in spirit – grab a Red Stripe and let your imagination run wild as you read about your Jamaican getaway. You almost feel like you’re there on the beach. And, you will come back sooner than later.”

Plus, couples in the novels are not restricted to real-life love. Who wouldn’t want to star in a love scene with Brad Pitt? Or better yet, surprise a best friend with a novel featuring them and their current crush – a gift that is sure to be received with gratitude and laughter

Givers of this gift can also feel good about their purchase, as 15% of book sales are donated to the Issa Trust Foundation, a non-profit organization formed by Couples Resorts to help Jamaican citizens and communities in need. Since the book’s debut last year, the foundation has received $2,475.

Yournovel.com, Inc. is the brainchild of husband and wife writing team J.S. Fletcher and Kathy M. Newbern who write together under the pseudonym Fletcher Newbern. The couple developed the concept, founded the company in 1992 and has authored 14 novels to date, including “Jamaica Rendezvous.”

“Fletcher and I were inspired to write this book after visiting Couples Ocho Rios and experiencing first-hand the magic of the romantic atmosphere there,” commented Kathy Newbern. “We had been considering writing a story based in Jamaica and this resort was the perfect backdrop.”

Those interested in getting steamy between the (front and back) covers of “Jamaica Rendezvous” have the option of ordering the book in two flavors, ‘wild’ or ‘mild’, and can do so via the Internet by visiting www.yournovel.com.
