    1. Oh, I love The Quiet Gentleman. And Anne and Capt. Wentworth are a favorite couple as well. As for Sayers' Peter Wimsey series, it's one I still need to try. Thanks, Lisa! :)

  4. That's a fun list! I haven't read any of these titles except the Mercy Thompson Series and I'm not even up-to-date with it. :p

    1. It's hard to keep up with a series, isn't it?...And there's always more books out there that I haven't read than I have. It's my bookish curse. ;D

  5. Laura and Alonzo for sure! And, yes, Kiera and Sebastian have to be on here.

  6. The only I've read about on your list is Laura Almonzo. Been a long time since I read those books. I am doing a reread (re-listen) of Deborah Crombie's mystery series and it contains one of my favorite couples - Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James. I'm also very partial to J.D. Robb's Eve Dallas and her Roarke. :-)

    1. They're great, aren't they? I love the book and the mini series they made back in the 80s. :) Thanks for commenting!

  10. Yes! Mina and Jonathan! They're such a great couple! Dracula is one of my favorite books. :)

  11. Gilbert Blythe and Anne Shirley are one of my favorite bookish couples. Laura and Almanzo are my favorite couple on your list. I think reading the Little House books when I was a kid was my first foray into romance. My Great-Grandma gave me the books for my birthday and read them with me. She LOVED the romance between Laura and Almanzo.

  12. #2 - I remember reading 'a room with a view' and liking it but now I kind of don't remember anything but the movie. I did like george and lucy though I must admit, I didn't remember his name

    sadly, I didn't read the other books on your list. it's good as readers we get to enjoy different books.

    have a lovely day.

    1. It is good that we all read differently. I'm often inspired by what other people are blogging about; it broadens my own bookish horizons. :D

  13. Mina and Jonathan- love that choice! And Raederle/ Morgan haha- get out! Nobody ever talks about those books lol.

    1. I love them! :D (And more people should talk about them, don't you think?)

  14. Oh my goodness, yes for Adam and Mercy! I'm insanely addicted to the series! I just recently did a re-read and I loved it even more than the first time. Yes, to George and Lucy too! I didn't read A Room With a View but the movie is one of my all-time favorites and I've watched it soooo many times! :)

    1. The Mercy Thompson series is one I can read over and over again, too! And ya gotta love George and Lucy. (The movie version is great, isn't it?)

  15. What a nice list! I actually love Mina and Jonathan from the Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)

  16. I’ve read the Little House Books, Dracula and Room with a View and I agree with you there on all counts!

    I also second Lisa’s choice of Lord Peter & Harriet Vane.

    I don’t think I read many books with couples in them. I feel like Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy are probably overused, but I do love that book!

    1. I felt like everyone would have Eliabeth and Mr. Darcy on their lists....which is why I didn't put them on mine.

  17. I actually haven't read any of these, but Why Mermaids Sing has a beautiful cover!

    1. That's the first C.S. Harris book I ever read and the one that hooked me on this series. :)
