Valentine's Reads: Favorite Couples


Happy Valentine's Day!

I have always loved Valentine's Day, even the many times I was single, I still think its a great holiday. I like the idea of having a day where you let the people you love know how much they mean to you. Since the holiday really revolves around couples, I thought I'd write up a quick post with a few of my favorite book couples. As you may already have noticed, I love reading romance. I love seeing people fall in love, but there are always a few couples that stand out from the rest. So here are a few of my favorite book couples, chosen at random from my Favorite Couples Shelf on Goodreads.

 Weathered Too Young by Marcia McClure
Lark Lawrence and Slater Evans
 
These two have great chemistry! He's lived a rough life, but has a fun side underneath all his gruff. Lark is a sweetheart, always taking care of those around her. Her kindness and charm quickly endear her to Slater and he just can't help keeping her for himself.
 
Working it Out by Rachael Anderson
Grace Warren and Seth Tuttle
 
I love when our lead characters really help each other grow and bring out the best in each other. Grace and Seth have great chemistry and some fun moments together. You can't help rooting for them to end up together.
 
The Guise of a Gentleman by Donna Hatch
Elise Berkley and Jared Amesbury
 
Jared and Elise are total opposites, he's a swashbuckling pirate and she's a prim and proper English lady. There's more than what's meets the eye with these two though, and they simply can't resist each other. I loved these two! They may be opposites, but definitely work well together.

The Rejected Suitor by Teresa McCarthy
Emily Clearbrook and Jared Ashton
 
Lost love stories always add a delicious level of tension that I just can't get enough of. Emily can hold her own with alpha-male Jared. They have great chemistry and a lot of obstacles to overcome to get to their happily ever after. 

Pimpernel by Sheralyn Pratt
Claire Ramsey and Jack Cavanaugh
 
Oh boy! This is a fun adventure and Jack is quite charming! I thought they had fun chemistry and I liked that Jack just can't live without his Claire. I'm hoping that there will be more books in this series, because I want to see these characters again!
 
The Unflappable Miss Fairchild by Regina Scott
Anne Fairchild and Chas Prestwick
 
Okay, if you like a funny and lighthearted heroine giving a charming rake a run for his money, then read this book!  I really liked how there seemed to be a genuine friendship between Chas and Anne that naturally grew to love. This also happens to be one of my favorite regencies!
 
***********************************
 
It was really hard to narrow it down to just these few and in making this list it just reminded me of how much I love to read. I love meeting new characters, the trials they have to go through and the romance (of course). Reading really is the best pastime.
 
Hope you all have a very Happy Valentine's Day!
