Amour is an English word. It means a love affair or an illicit or secret love affair. For example, their amour was kept from the public eye for quite a while, which means that the love affair was kept a secret and common public had no knowledge of it as such for a while. The origin of the word is from Latin amor which means love, and from amre, which means to love.

The adjective of amour is amorous, in old French amoureus. This means strongly attracted to love and especially sexual love. It also indicates love or sexual desire such as an amorous glance.
