What is your perfect Valentine's Day like?
For me the perfect Valentine's Day is walking along a deserted beach with the man I love. Laughing at life and exchanging hugs and kisses.

What is your all-time favourite romantic movie?
Bringing Up Baby is my favorite romantic movie. Nobody does romantic comedy better than Katharine Hepburn. The costumes are gorgeous and Cary Grant…(sigh)
What is your all-time favourite romance book/novel?
Friday's Child by Georgette Heyer. No matter how many times I read this book it makes me laugh and it makes me cry. The dialogue is witty. It is a madcap romance between two young people who learn what love is.

What is your perfect Valentine's Day like?
A nice fire, some Lindt chocolates, and my significant other.

What is your all-time favourite romantic movie?
Sense and Sensibility- Colonel Brandon could read me some poetry any time.

What is your all-time favourite romance book/novel?
Dr. Zhivago.

What is your perfect Valentine's Day like?
If my husband surprised me with an overnight stay at a bed and breakfast, my day would be practically perfect. Sleep late, a dozen yellow roses (I know, but yellow roses are special to me), and of course, Godiva chocolates. I won't sleep late; it's a workday. He'll get me the roses and the chocolates, because he always does, but he'll never think of the bed and breakfast. It's not a surprise if I have to tell him, right? Oh no, he was looking over my shoulder when I wrote this.
What is your all-time favourite romantic movie?
Ooh, that's a tough one. I can't choose just one. When Harry Met Sally or How To Lose a Guy in Ten Days. I can think of at least five more go-to movies when I need a romance fix.

What is your all-time favourite romance book/novel?
This is tough choice, too. Gone With the Wind and Rebecca are my classic choices. Something contemporary? I really loved The Other Eden by Sarah Bryant.

What is your perfect Valentine's Day like?
Avoiding restaurants. I love a heart shaped pizza, a mini bottle of champagne, and my hubby.

What is your all-time favourite romantic movie?
I adore romantic comedies though they are forever changing. For the moment: The Proposal (though Crazy, Stupid, Love is a close second). What can I say, I have a thing for Ryan's (don't tell my husband *wink*.
What is your all-time favourite romance book?
It Had to Be You by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. She's a genius and I've yet to dislike anything she's written.

What is your perfect Valentine's Day like?
My perfect Valentine’s Day would be a dozen red roses, a heart shaped box of chocolates (I know, cheesy but it's Valentine’s!!) and a romantic dinner...sigh...and if he gift wrapped a 16 hand Friesian horse, I would marry him that day!!

What is your all-time favourite romantic movie?
Above all else it is Pride & Prejudice. First the BBC version with Colin Firth followed by the more recent one with Kiera Knightly

What is your all-time favourite romance book?
"The Promise" by Danielle Steele - I read it cover to cover one night at the cottage. My mum found me on the sofa in the morning still reading - I couldn't put it down! She was horrified.

What is your perfect Valentine's Day like?
Sleep in. Spend the day outdoors, either by a lake or the ocean followed by dinner at our favorite little Italian restaurant. A movie then home to a quiet kid-free house for a little us time.

What is your all-time favourite romantic movie?
Three way tie between PS I Love You, Phantom of the Opera (Gerard Butler is fantastic in both) and the Keira Knightly version of Pride and Prejudice. 

What is your all-time favourite romance book?
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

What is your perfect Valentine's Day like?
Any day is Valentine's day when I'm in love and I get chocolate.

What is your all-time favourite romantic movie?
The Lakehouse. I can't watch it over and over again because I sob.
What is your all-time favourite romance book?
Favorite romantic book Gone With the Wind. I have loved Rhett Butler since I was ten years old.

W. Lynn Chantale

What is your perfect Valentine's Day like? 
My perfect Valentine’s Day is spending time with my wonderful husband. This year we’re going on a mystery/dinner train, but that’s a tame date compared to what we’ve done in the past.

What is your all-time favourite romantic movie?
My favorite romantic movie is An American President. I just love how Andrew Shepard (Kirk Douglas) fumbles his way through a romance with lobbyist Sydney Ellen Wade (Annette Benning) while trying to remain president.

What is your all-time favourite romance book?
This may surprise you, but I don’t have one.

What is your perfect Valentine's Day like?
Husband cooking me dinner, kids being good and leaving me alone, and a loooong soak in the tub with a glass of wine and a book. But if Edward Cullen showed up, I'd expect a steamy night at the Four Seasons. Just sayin'.

What is your all-time favourite romantic movie?
Toss up between Hope Floats and The Notebook
What is your all-time favourite romance book?
Rosemary Rogers, Sweet Savage Love (stole it from my mom's bookcase when I was 15). Ginny and Steve *sigh*.

What is your perfect Valentine's Day like?
It would somehow involve The Inn at Langley, on Whidbey Island in Washington State. I accidently stayed there one night last summer - that's what God made American Express for, after all - and it was so incredibly luxurious and relaxing that I can't wait to go back. I can imagine sitting out on our lanai, wrapped up because of the February cold, sipping wine and watching the waves, with the fireplace burning and the stereo playing. The restaurant has the best food on the planet. Yep, sign me up for that one.
What is your all-time favourite romantic movie?
I'm a loser. I'd rather read the book. How 'bout the scene at the end of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie when Will & Elisabeth finally kiss?

What is your all-time favourite romance book?
The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook. Steampunk and romance and yum! It was my favorite book of 2011, and I've re-read it at least three times. I have it on my Kindle, and I also have a paper version so I can lend it out. Anyone want to borrow it?

What is your perfect Valentine's Day like?
Just me and him, blankets, some hot chocolate and a movie on the TV. Oh, and snow outside.
What is your all-time favourite romantic movie?
Come on people, 'PS: I Love You'. 

What is your all-time favourite romance book?
'The Time Traveller's Wife', which turned out to be an ok movie.
