Romantic Times

No, I'm not talking about the convention many of us attended last month in Daytona Beach, nor am I talking about the book reviews magazine. Today I want to talk about moments in your life with that special someone, in which the mood and surroundings encouraged romance.

So let's do a poll. What circumstances qualify most for your kind of romantic times?

  1. Your idea of a romantic meal is (a) candlelight dinner in an upscale restaurant; (b) a picnic just for the two of you with finger foods and wine; (c) a meal he or she cooks for you at home; (d) drive-thru (e) raid the fridge after making love.

  2. Your idea of a romantic date is (a) live theater, ballet, or opera; (b) first run movie at a cinema; (c) cuddle in front of the TV watching rented DVDs; (d) attend a live sporting event together;(e) dancing.

  3. Your idea of a romantic get-away is (a) Fly to a faraway city for a weekend in a luxury hotel; (b) A weekend at a cabin in the mountains; (c) A weekend at a quaint bed and breakfast; (d) a weekend at a hotel on the beach; (e)Camping in a state or national park.

  4. Your idea of a romantic gift is (a) Jewelry; (b) clothes; (c)An electronic device, i.e. an iPod or digital camers; (d) an autographed copy of a book by your favorite author; (e) a puppy or kitten.

There you have it.

There's no score profiling the type person you are, there are no right or wrong answers. Just give me your choices or add others of your own. Have fun with it.

All (non-LSB) participants will be eligible for a drawing to win a free download of my Quicksilver, CABIN FEVER, a story in which the heroine pulls out all the stops for a romantic weekend with her husband to try to save their troubled marriage.


PS Just to kick things off, I'll give you my answers: 1.c 2.e 3.e 4.d

I can do ordinary stuff anytime. When we do something extraordinary, now that's romantic!
