Every Tuesday over at the  The Broke and Bookish we all get to look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  This week’s topic is:

 All About the Romance

Well, I’m not really ‘all about the romance’ but as today is Valentine’s Day, why not!

  1. Rhett and Scarlett – obvious but had to be included.  Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell.  It’s not SFF Jim – but frankly, I don’t give a damn.
  2. Alexander and Tatiana.  Had to be on here – The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons – boy oh boy is this one hot romance.  I’m not kidding.  I don’t, as I said above, usually read romance but this book…omg.
  3. Jamie and Claire – Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.  I expect these two will be on a few lists this week!
  4. Princess Buttercup and Westley.  The Princess Bride by William Goldman.  Sweet and funny romance – inconceivable?
  5. Buffy and Spike – Oh Yes!  I haven’t read the books but I have seen the series and Spike wins.
  6. Ron and Hermione – maybe not a sizzling couple because that would be a bit wrong and apparently Ron has the emotional range of a teaspoon – but here it is nonetheless!  J K Rowling’s Harry Potter.
  7. Han Solo and Leia – yes, I have never read any of the Star Wars books but I’ve seen the films and so this counts!
  8. Toby and Tybalt – really, couldn’t leave these off!  The October Daye series by Seanan McGuire.  Plus King of the Cats – Grrr!
  9. Tristan and Yvaine from Neil Gaiman’s Stardust – don’t you just love Neil Gaiman’s books!
  10. ??? – your choice please…
