Blog Hop: Romance Between the Book Covers

book blogger hopThis week’s Book Blogger Hop question: Who is your favorite fictional couple?

The first one who comes to mind is one I’ve already discussed in a review, but it’s been a while…  Arabella and Turnip (real name Reginald) from The Mischief of the Mistletoe.  They’re my favorite in part because they’re so disregarded by the people around them, but are so perfect for each other.  Everyone thinks Turnip is rather dumb and laughable, but Arabella sees how kind, earnest and just fun he is.  No one ever remembers Arabella’s name or thinks of her as more than a wallflower, but Turnip notices her lively spirit, intelligence, and also that she’s actually quite pretty.

I especially like a moment near the end when they’re dancing at a party (Regency England, you know, people do that), and Turnip sees how Arabella glows with enthusiasm when she dances.  He’s baffled that no one (including himself, on earlier occasions) seems to notice this!

I also especially like Cress and Thorne from the Lunar Chronicles.  Cress is brilliant but naive, and I love the way her belief in Thorne’s heroism totally freaks him out–but does eventually lead to him trying to be that person she thinks he is.

Your turn!  Who’s your favorite romantic couple in fiction? 🙂

    Scarlett and Rhett for one, but also Ashley and Melanie, both from Gone With the Wind. Those are the ones who immediately come to mind for me. There are probably others if I gave it a lot of thought. 🙂

  2. I am finding it very hard to think of romantic couples I like – I can think of many romantic characters but I don’t always love their partners as much 😀
