Valentine's Day books uploaded to MR

Hi guys! We usually have a thread during holidays on books about that holiday. Valentine's Day is coming up, and I'd like some recommendations!

They don't need to be about Valentine's Day, per se, but maybe cute romantic books. Does anyone have any they want to share?

One I uploaded last year (after I bought a copy on eBay) was Paul Leicester Ford's "Wanted: A Chaperon." A fun short story about a country girl in New York City who gets lost in a blizzard an ends up at a bachelor's residence (also appropriate tonight for those on the east coast).

A couple from MR's own library.

This sounds kind of short, cute, and humorous.
Humor - Ashford, Daisy, The Young Visiters

With a Preface by J M Barrie (1919).

This curiosity is a novel by a 9 year-old girl.

Mr Saltena's plan is to buy a peerage, so clearly the cash-for-honours scandal has a long history if Victorian children were familiar with the concept.

A memorable line:
"I shall put some red ruge on my face said Ethel because I am very pale owing to the drains in this house."

Edited to add that this book is now located on the US server.
