I'm often asked if I have a favorite among my own books. The answer is no. Each is special to me in a different way and sometimes for very different reasons. However, I do confess to having some favorite characters.
But let's talk favorite romantic couples.
From my own books, at the top of my list would have to be Cleo and Sherwood from Fit To Be Tied. Such a mismatched pair. They delighted me. I had such fun watching their love grow.
Angel and Michael from Francine Rivers' classic, Redeeming Love, stand out in my mind. Definitely not lighthearted like Cleo and Sherwood, but oh-so-memorable. I learned so much just "watching" Michael Hosea talk to God, and I yearned for Angel to discover true love, both with Michael and with the Lord.
How about from the movies? I find those much easier than books actually. Perhaps that's because I watch movies over and over but there are only a few books that I've read multiple times (Redeeming Love; Gone With the Wind; etc.).
Who doesn't love Bob and Grace in Return to Me? Okay, if you don't, don't tell me. I simply won't understand. I get so caught up in their romance. I cry and I smile and I sing through this movie, and the ending in Italy. Ah …
It goes without saying that Scarlet and Rhett from Gone With the Wind would be on my list (both book and movie). Not a happy ending as written by Ms. Mitchell, but that's the nice thing about an imagination like mine. No matter what anyone else thinks, I know they got back together and love triumphed in the end.
Okay, your turn. Name some of your favorite couples from books and/or movies. Feel free to expand on why.
