It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and that means it’s time for all sorts of romantic fun.
Now, romance can be soft and gentle, it can be hot and steamy, or it can be wild and crazy. (And so many permutations thereof.)
I’m thinking that this post is going to go with hot and steamy.
A dessert pot of fondue and a plate piled high with strawberries is both steamy and sexy (and hot!).
And my current book, RELEASE ME, is sizzling hot (and it’s in it’s third week as a NYT bestseller, and it just landed for it’s fifth week on the USA Today list … yay!)
Did I say the book was hot? Well, it is. But not as hot as the hero, Damien Stark! “5 of 5 stars – Oh.My.God. Where do I start? Damien, that’s where.” In Love With Romance
But, of course, curling up with a book is a solitary activity.
If you want to get all romantic and snuggly, maybe curl up with a movie (and your sweetie). I ran across this blog post recently of Movies to Get You In The Mood. Check it out!
And, of course, if you need romantic paraphernalia, Amazon has pretty much anything … and delivers to your door!

A quiet, intimate night with dinner followed by being together.
A nice quiet dinner just the 2 of us.
It’s the little things — making a meal for you, picking up dry cleaning, a kiss in the morning ….
Time out (or in) without the kids.
Simply a hug, a kiss, or just a meaningful ‘I love you’ will make my day 🙂
My favorite drink (D’Marie red wine frappe) and the two of us in the hot tub!
Helping with chores, cooking dinner together , spending alone time cuddling watching tv.
I like someone who pays attention to the quirky things about me and celebrates them!
I am all about the sentimental. I love when he notices little things or sets up a surprise for me that he knows I will love
What’s romantic… little considerations, surprises, that sort of thing 🙂

Flowers for no special occasion.
A simple text or call that says, “Just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you” from my BF is something that I find quite romantic.
Just a night alone with my husband is romantic to me. I don’t need anything special! 🙂
Signs and gifts that show he knows me…
Quite time together. It’s the best.
Flowers and candlelight!
I love spending a quiet night at home with dinner and dessert.
A quite night at home with the person I love and also being sent flowers/roses for no reason at all – meaning getting them in days other then Vday, Bday and anniversary!
Flowers and candlelight , thanks for the chance to win
Home-cooked meals and gifts or gestures specific to the person they’re for.
Fondue is definitely romantic. My husband took me out to a fondue place on our first date. Very romantic!!
Just staying home and having a quiet night.
Thanks for the chance to win!
Romance to me is when you are being treated specail by the one you love. That may be a night out on the town, snuggling on the couch to a good movie, or him bringing me a glass of wine to my bath!
Thanks for the giveaway! Love is definitely in the air and I think a good example of a strong romantic novel is “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon. Jamie and Claire are EPIC.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Quiet time spent with the person you love. Of course, flowers, chocolate, candles are welcome, but not essential. 😀
I’m simple. I just like time spent with my husband, whether it’s out for dinner or just a quiet night in.
a gift of red roses or a romantic dinner
I think dinner and good conversation is romantic.
Getting flowers and a dinner together.
For me, romance is often in the basic things. I can’t get into a romantic mood if basic life things aren’t done. So for me doing the dishes is quite romantic.

Everything seems romantic to me. A hopeless romantic here. But I do tend to over exaggerate and make things seem romantic when it’s not. A simple glance and smile will break me~!
