Amazon names Bellevue 12th most romantic city

Amazon named Bellevue No. 12 on its list of most romantic American cities, based on the online retailer’s sales of romance novels, sex and relationship books, romantic-comedy movies, sexual-wellness products and Barry White CDs since Jan. 1, 2010.

Seattle came in behind Bellevue at 13th, while Alexandria, Va. placed 1st, proving that Virginia is indeed for lovers, as the tourism slogan for that state suggests.
