Today, I’d like to talk about great love stories. Yesterday, I talked about why we even have a Valentine’s Day and why it even came into the public eye. I’m going to list out my favorite ten couples of all time. And I’ll be like David Letterman and give them to you in reverse order. I think some of you will be surprised as not all of them come from books but rather movies. That's what happen when a good love story comes to the screen.
10 ~ Del & Tiger from Sword Dancer by Jennifer Roberson ~ This is a wonderful fantasy book about two people from opposite sides of their world and how coming together is for the good of not only themselves but the rest of their world.
09 ~ Julius & Cleopatra ~ Most people fall in love with the Mark Anthony and Cleo story but not me. How these two manipulated each other in and out of the bedroom is something to behold. Their story is timeless in oh so many ways.
08 ~ Scarlett & Rhett from Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell ~ Who can have a list without these two? I know, I know...it doesn’t end happily but the story telling is so good that just for a moment, you forget that.
07 ~ Heather & Brandon from The Flame and the Flower by Kathleen Woodiwiss~ This was the first true romance that I ever read and I was smitten. Need I say more?
06 ~ The Warriors of Spider by W. Michael Gear ~ This book is set in the far future. It has a Native American like culture, a group intent to destroy it and a man kidnapping a woman...what more can a girl ask for?
05 ~ Frank & Rachel ~ The Bodyguard ~ This is one of the best love stories around and today my personal tribute to Whitney Houston, may she RIP after her tumultous life.
04 ~ Lucy & Jack ~ While You Were Sleeping ~ This movie is so endearing and who can resist the leaning dialogue with all sexes trying on the shoes.
03 ~ Will & Anna ~ Notting Hill ~ OMG! This is one of my favorites of all time. It has some great lines and is hot!
02 ~ Martini & Kitty ~ If you haven’t read any of Gini Koch’s Alien series, all I can say is...what are you waiting for? The pairing of these two is a tango worth reading.
01 ~ Kyle & Sarah ~ The Terminator ~ Yeah, this is my all-time most romantic pairing ever. What girl can’t resist this: ‘I came across time for you, Sarah.’ My heart still flutters every time I hear it, say it or read it. I did name my youngest Kyle in honor of this movie. Yes, it did help that the name was part of my husband’s family history and we both got what we wanted. LOL!
Now, it is your turn...what are your ten most romantic couples?
See you all tomorrow!
