BEGINNING PRESS: KISS SOMEONE IN ALL THE BEST PLACES THIS VALENTINE'S DAY

 SEATTLE, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- A kiss is just a kiss? Not if its done in all the right places! No matter what your budget, lifestyle or romantic preferences, "The Best Places to Kiss in the Northwest... A Romantic Travel Guide" ($12.95, Beginning Press) will help point you in the direction of the most endearing bed and breakfasts, restaurants, hotels, cafes, parks and drives in the Northwest, Beginning Press said today. This is just one of six Best Places to Kiss books, which cover Northern and Southern California, New England, New York City and Hawaii. Known for their candid reviews, more than 100,000 copies of these books have been sold.
 If looking for love in all the wrong places has been a problem, "The Best Places" series can help you turn your Valentine's Day celebration or any vacation with someone you love into a blissful, romantic getaway. Each book offers discriminating descriptions of hundreds of exclusive places from a group of earnest travel writers headed by publisher and co-author Paula Begoun. Unlike many other travel books, "The Best Places" series includes romantic warnings against noise, crowds, small rooms, poor service, less than desirable settings, and what times of day are the least preferable for those special moments.
 "Many of the places we list are beyond words, even beyond kissing -- where you can savor that heartfelt, elusive time together so many of us need to rekindle intimacy and love," said Begoun. "Often we review popular places where people expect to find rapture and find little more than tacky surroundings. It's not about passion, lust, sex (although we're not ruling that out), but the message is definitely more about affection and intimacy."
 Each place is given a kiss rating determined by its surrounding splendor, privacy and ambiance. Small lips accompany each review, instead of the typical chef's hats or stars. One pair represents "romantic possibilities" and four lips means "sublime."
 How did these "kiss and tell" travel writers go about making their selections? "Very carefully," said Begoun. "We would have loved to kiss at every location, but if we had, the book would never have been written, and we would still be researching." The major criterion was whether or not the authors wanted to return with their significant other to enjoy what they had discovered.
 Here are some romantic locations in the Northwest that earned Begoun's four-kiss rating.
 Hotel/Bed and Breakfast Kissing
 -- The Aerie, Malahat, Vancouver Island, British Columbia. This sumptuous, exclusive hideaway is drenched in opulent furnishings and serves superlative dinners enhanced by awesome views.
 -- Seaquest Bed and Breakfast in Yachats, Ore. The author liked this place so much that she almost kept it to herself. This lovely home is just 50 feet from the shore and features five beautifully designed guest rooms with Jacuzzi tubs.
 Restaurant Kissing
 -- The Georgian Room at the Four Seasons Olympic Hotel in downtown Seattle is a luxurious and regal room with ornate crystal chandeliers, monumental floral arrangements, two-story windows and subdued lighting where you can enjoy five-star cuisine.
 Outdoor Kissing
 -- Oswald West State Park near Cannon Beach, Ore., is a campground for the hardy and romantic. Spend the day on the beach and sleep with the stars over your head and the ocean's roar in your ears.
 With "Best Places to Kiss in the Northwest" you can easily find a new spot to rekindle your romance or spark a new flame this Valentine's Day.
 "The Best Places to Kiss in the Northwest," by Paula Begoun and Stephanie Bell ($12.95) is available in bookstores throughout the Northwest, or from the publisher.
