This week's question is:

Mr & Mrs: Who are your favorite book couples?


This list could go on and on, but I've decided to list my top five.

1) Jamie and Claire from the Outlander series. Jamie goes through hell and back for his beloved Claire, and Claire has to fight between two marriages in two different times to two very different men. Ladies, if you love the alpha male, there is no better specimen than this strapping red-headed Scottish warrior.

2) Cassia and Ky from the Matched trilogy. I loved their bond through language - her love of poetry and him teaching her to write. I fell for these two in a big way.

3) Stephanie and Ranger from the Stephanie Plum series. Screw Morelli. I'm Team Ranger all the way, and each book that features him significantly becomes exponentially better as a result.

4) Gabi and Marcello from the River of Time series. The thing I appreciate about this couple is that their love is built on mutual admiration for the other's abilities. Marcello doesn't want to just be a hero to a damsel in distress - he likes Gabi because she is so independent. Yes please!

5) Ash and Seth from the Wicked Lovely series. The book may have not been my favorite, but I absolutely loved this relationship. When I think about this book, I always think of these two and how perfect they are for each other. Their feelings seemed so honest that I couldn't help but fall in love with them.

Who are your favorite couples?

Mercy and Adam from the Mercy Thompson series. Love their mutual respect. Oooh, I'm team Ranger, too. Dark and dangerous is good. Charity and Richard from Madam Will You Talk? And who could forget Romeo and Juliet or the great matches in Jane Austen's books? . . . I love a good romance.

Oh, you meant book couples? *blushes*

LOL

Jamie is legendary. Now that is a book series I wish was a TV series. I haven't read the books because they are monstrous, but I'd love to see them. ;)

@Mflick1 - Everyone who ever reads Outlander is in love with Jamie. I can't think of a single bad thing to say about him. *swoon*

@DebraZ - I almost put Mercy and Adam! Love them.

@Denise - I try to keep it eventful! :)

@Missie - The books are so daunting. Some of the later ones really drag, but I found the first one to be a quick read despite its heft.

I love to hear from my readers, so please don't hesitate to comment. Good or bad, inspired reflection or spontaneous babble - I love them all!
