Our most romantic cities

As Valentine's Day approaches, Amazon.ca has ranked Victoria as Canada's most romantic city – again.

It's the sixth year in a row the B.C. capital has earned the title, by comparing sales data on such things as romance novels, jewelry and sex toys.

B.C. dominated the top 20, with eight cities on the list, including Vernon at No. 18. This year, Kelowna failed to make the cut.

Among the top relationship or romance books, and romantic movies were 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts by Gary Chapman, the classic chick flick Pretty Woman, starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts, and Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love by Sue Johnson.
