Vacation, a wonderful time for family, friends, sightseeing and romance. I had the incredible pleasure of spending the weekend with my daughter in Seattle. Her house is perched in a wooded glen overlooking a large lake. Ahhhhhh romance. With my husband, not my daughter – honestly, where is your mind?

Whether you are looking for adventure, beaches, camping, or an exquisite hotel suite, romance is always in bloom. Making love on the sands of a secluded beach, in a tub filled with rose petals and the scent of lavender, a walk in the woods leading to a bit of “slap and tickle” against a bubbling stream, or a risqué romp on a balcony overlooking a big city – the world is full of enticing ways to enrich your love life.

According to Leisure Magazine, the Top Ten most romantic hotels in the U.S. are:

10.  Greyfield Inn; Cumberland Island Georgia – an antique filled, bed and breakfast nestled in the wildlife-filled barrier island. A cozy retreat for the not-so adventurous lovers.

9.   Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel; Dana Point, California – high above the cliffs of the Pacific, this hotel offers the best in luxurious accommodations and just the right feel for a bit of love making on the beach or the bedroom.

8.  San Ysidro Ranch; Santa Barbara, California – for the western lover in all of us. Lasso your beau and tie him to the bed in this rustic, back to nature resort.

7.  St. Regis Resort; Aspen, Colorado – fine dining, luxurious surroundings, beautiful spas and pools; just the thing for a relaxing or vigorous “skin to skin” with the lover of your choice.

6. Little Palm Island Resort and Spa; Little Torch Key, Florida. Can you imagine thatched-roof bungalows on a private 6-acre island? Can you imagine the seclusion you will have for a midnight rendezvous on the beach? Paradise!

5. The Lowell; New York, New York – for the city minded. After a long day of sightseeing, rest in the beauty of one of the many luxurious suites, dine at one of the finest restaurants, then sneak in a little nookie on the balcony.

4. Inn a Little Washington; Washington, Virginia – take a walk into yester-year with this beautiful early-20th-century house. The cozy atmosphere should get his libido roaring – no TV!

3.  Four Seasons Resort Lanai, The Lodge at Koele; Lanai, Hawaii – need I say anything else? An island paradise, the sand, the surf, the sex!

2. Madrona Manor; Healdsburg, California – Victorian styling without the Victorian sexual restrictions. Beautiful rooms with fireplaces for slap and tickle in front of flames.

1. Four Seasons Resort; Jackson Hole, Wyoming – nestle in the clouds as you rest and romp in the Tetons. Fireplaces, old west Jackson Hole, picturesque views – romance is waiting for you!

Top Ten Love Songs of All Time by Billboard Top 100

Does music set the mood? Will a lyric take you back to a romantic spot, a dance, or a romp in the backseat of a car? Music creates an image with its rhythmic sounds. The waves wash over you like an ocean tide. Is there anything more romantic than the right theme?

Here are the Top Ten Love Songs of All Time, according to sales by Billboard Top 100. What do you think? What would you add? What would you delete?

10. “Unbreak My Heart” by Toni Braxton – Eh???? It was okay.

9.  “We Belong Together” by Mariah Carey - I can think of other songs she did better.

8.  “Hey Jude” by the Beatles – Really, it was written for Julian Lennon??????

7.  “You Light Up My Life” by Debbie Boone – Ah memories, I danced to this song at the sixth grade stomp……wowowowowowow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6.  “Physical” by Olivia Newton John – OMG! The hairband and leg warmers!

5.  “Macarena” by Los Del Rio – Are they kidding???? Who compiled this?????

4.  “How Do I Live” by LeAnn Rimes – Ok, getting better.

3.  “Mack the Knife” by Bobby Darin – I suppose if you like shark with lemon butter.

2.  “Unchained Melody” by the Righteous Brothers – More like it.

I personally can think of many others that would fit nicely in this list. I believe I would omit most of these. How about “I Will Always Love You”, “Cannon in D”, “Amazed” and many, many others.

No accounting for purchasing power!

Blogger's Block

Blogger's Block - What does one say at the start of a new venture?
Romance writing was not my first choice. I fell into the genre this year.
Writing is my passion. I have been a citizen journalist, a thriller/suspense
novelist and a historic writer. Romance is new on the written page, but not
in my heart.

Excuse the dust, I'm breaking new ground. Join me and we'll build a monument!

Check out for my latest books.
