"I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think of romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler with a weapon." Unknown

Oh yeah! I agree with Unknown-somehow a little person with wings shooting arrows at me doesn't conjure up romance to me either.

Seems love and romance are in the air so here are a few authors to curl up with and loose yourself with; movies that will turn you to mush; and some cool romance/love songs to get you going.
