"Ontario is for lovers" could be the province's new slogan, since it has half of the top 20 most romantic cities in Canada, according to a new list.

Based on sales of romance novels, rom-com DVDs and Michael Buble discs, the most amorous place in the country is Kingston, Ont., according to rankings released Tuesday by Amazon.ca.

Guelph, Ont., comes in at No. 2 for the second year in a row.

St. John's, N.L., at No. 10, is the only city in Atlantic Canada to make the list. But people in the Prairies like to canoodle when it's cold outside, with both Regina and Saskatoon making the top 10.

Sorry, Toronto and Ottawa, we're just not that into you. But we are getting cozy with your neighbours: Oakville (No. 4), Richmond Hill (No. 11), Burlington (No. 15), Thunder Bay (No. 16), Brantford (No. 18) and London (No. 19).

The complete list:

1. Kingston, Ontario

2. Guelph, Ontario

3. Kelowna, British Columbia

4. Oakville, Ontario

5. Victoria, British Columbia

6. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

7. Regina, Saskatchewan

8. Calgary, Alberta

9. Kamloops, British Columbia

10. St. John's, Newfoundland

11. Richmond Hill, Ontario

12. Red Deer, Alberta

13. Langley, British Columbia

14. Winnipeg, Manitoba

15. Burlington, Ontario

16. Thunder Bay, Ontario

17. Barrie, Ontario

18. Brantford, Ontario

19. London, Ontario

20. Burnaby, British Columbia

The list was compiled by comparing sales data of books, DVDs and CDs since January 1, 2012, on a per capita basis in cities with over 80,000 residents.
