  1. Yes, the colors, the romance, the fact that he’s holding her head/touching her face and not grabbing her rear is very sweet. His foot on the steps as if he were about to leave but stopped to kiss her on his way out or possibly she came to meet him on his way in. The fact that she isn’t wearing that cursed corset of days gone by helps up the romantic factor. Something incredibly sexy about a tender kiss like that. Of course the fact that we’re conditioned from childhood that castles = princes and princesses = happily ever after doesn’t come into it at all… 😛
