A made-at-Concordia romance for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Isadora Romero is from Mexico City, and is studying Modern Languages with a specialization in Spanish. Last fall, walking through the library complex, she bumped into a young man she recognized from her hometown. Francisco Reyez was preparing to enrol in Studio Arts. Two weeks ago, they became engaged.

The Westmount Conservatory, a little oasis of plants and flowers on Sherbrooke St., is one of the "best places for stealing a kiss," according to Journalism Professor Linda Kay, who has just launched a second edition of her book, Romantic Days and Nights in Montreal, a guide to the sensual side of Montreal. This edition is meant to be younger and hipper than the first one, published two years ago. It also has a new feature -- lists of "bests" for the romantically inclined. Kay launched her book recently at Chapter's bookstores downtown and on the West Island.
