Hello my lovelies,
My name is Audrey Carlan and I’m the #1 New York Times and Worldwide bestselling author of Calendar Girl. I’m here today to share with you my brand new blockbuster series, International Guy! I cannot express how excited I am to share this story with you. Not only will I promise you a new book boyfriend to swoon over, but an intense serial that will take you on a journey unlike any you’ve had before.
This story is told primarily through the eyes of my hero, Parker Ellis, CEO of International Guy, Inc. known to his team as the “Dream Maker”. He is joined by his partners Royce Sterling, the “Money Maker” and Bogart “Bo” Montgomery dubbed the “Love Maker.” The IG team helps individuals all over the globe with unique problems often involving life and love coaching.
Now I’m going to introduce my main man, Parker Ellis!
Audrey: Hey Park, how’s it hanging, brother?
Parker: Nice and tight, a little to the left.
Audrey: Gross. <rolls eyes>
Parker: Pretty lady, you asked. <He laughs heartily.>
Audrey: I’ve been asked to find out from you what would you consider the perfect date in each of the cities you’re traveling to in International Guy: Volume 1?
Parker: Well, to start, Paris is considered one of the most romantic cities in the world. And what is the most romantic symbol in Paris?
Audrey: The Seine River?
Parker: <he shakes his head> Audrey, babe, no. The most iconic symbol is the Eiffel Tower.
Audrey: Oh, well yeah, that makes sense.
Parker: For me, a perfect date would be to bring my beautiful woman to the Jules Verne restaurant overlooking all of Paris. Follow dinner up with a walk along the Seine. Especially if you can stop over one of the bridges and kiss her under the moonlight. Women eat that shit up.
Audrey: <Laughs hard.> We eat that shit up?
Parker: <Cocks a brow.> Well yeah. There’s nothing wrong with it. Romance is a part of the wooing process. I dig it. I enjoy a nice meal with a beautiful woman. And there’s nothing like holding a woman’s hand while walking along a majestic body of water.
Audrey: Okay, what if you were in New York?
Parker: The city that never sleeps? A personal fave of mine.
Audrey: What would you consider a perfect date there?
Parker: Hands down, dinner and a Broadway show. I believe Phantom of the Opera is still running and it has rave reviews. Plus, it’s a rather interesting and twisted love story. This gives you plenty to talk to your woman about after the show. Preferably back at her place.
Audrey: Mm hmm. And the last city? Copenhagen?
Parker: Easy. Castles. I’ve never met a woman that wasn’t enthralled by royalty or relics from a past time. I’d take my date during the day on a tour of a sprawling castle then to a comfy hole in the wall pub that offered the traditional hygge along with a pint or a nice bottle of red wine.
Parker: <nods and smiles> It’s essentially a feeling of coziness and comfort. It’s that sensation you get when you’re snuggled up close, maybe in a corner booth at a pub, or sitting next to your woman in front of a warm fire.
Audrey: I can see that. I love cozying up to my husband, especially on cold nights.
Parker: <grins sexily> Exactly. What I think men don’t realize now a days is that women aren’t expecting too much. They want a man they’re dating to spend quality time doing different and interesting things with them. It’s not about the exact date, as in where you’ve gone or what you do when you get there. It’s more about the intention of the date. Which in my opinion is all about togetherness. Living in the moment. Experiencing things with someone you care about. Perhaps even trying new things. Feeling out what makes your partner smile. That’s when you know you’ve got something special and that’s what I shoot for on all my dates and with all of my clients.
Audrey: What would you say is your primary philosophy about dating?
Parker: Come on, Audrey, you know me. You know me.
Audrey: Answer it anyway!
Parker: Life is about meaningful experiences and not taking the special moments we’re given for granted. Every person I take out I strive to share something unique, something memorable.
Audrey: I like that. It’s very deep.
Parker: <smirks> I know something else that can get very deep.
Audrey! Hey, I’m married!
Parker: Just sayin’…hook a brother up already.
Audrey: Maybe I already have?
Parker: <eyes seem to get wider with excitement> I cannot freakin’ wait to see who you set me up with. She better be hot!
Audrey: Come on. You know me. You know me. <I laugh repeating his words>
Parker: Yeah, she’s hot. <grins huge>

My name is Parker Ellis. You can call me The Dream Maker. This is where my story begins.
There’s a world of women waiting for me, but my journey starts here, in three cities: Paris. New York. Copenhagen.
International Guy Inc. is owned and operated by Parker Ellis, a ladies’ man with a high IQ and a big libido. He’s the most successful life and love coach in the world, and he’s smart enough to know he can’t run a multimillion-dollar company alone.
He hires two friends whose areas of expertise complement his own. They comprise The Dream Maker, The Love Maker, and The Money Maker. Together, they advise the wealthiest people in the world: Hollywood hotshots, European royalty, and the CEOs of multibillion-dollar companies. And sometimes they can’t help it when things heat up and they end up in bed with their clients. Quite literally.
This International Guy likes his playboy lifestyle, and he’s not looking for commitment. After all, there’s a whole world waiting for him. But as he goes from city to city, and from woman to woman, it’s possible that he just might find his own love along the way…
