My favorite loves:
Elizabeth & Mr. Darcy from Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
"I cannot fix on the hour, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun."
Marcus & Jessica from the Sloppy Firsts series by Megan McCafferty
"Gone for a while
Hoping, always, to return
If you will let me"
Dimitri & Rose from the Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead
"That's what I was supposed to say..."
Bella & Edward from the Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer
(Whatever, don't judge it.)
"Do I dazzle you?"
Emma & Mr. Knightley from Emma by Jane Austen
"It darted through her with the speed of an arrow that Mr. Knightley must marry no one but herself!"
Anne & Gilbert from the Anne of Green Gables books by Lucy Maud Montgomery
"Gilbert Blythe was trying to make Anne Shirley look at him and failing utterly....she should look at him, that redhaired Shirley girl with the pointed chin and the big eyes that weren't like the eyes of any other girl in Avonlea school."
Remy & Dexter from This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen (Though I would happily substitute any novel by Dessen in for this!)
"I just thought to my self, all of a sudden, that we had something in common. A natural chemistry, if you will. And I had a feeling that something big was going to happen. To both of us. That we were, in fact, meant to be together."
And, to round out my top 10, insert ANY book by Jennifer Echols, Simone Elkeles and Meg Cabot. Those ladies know their love stories.
Much love to you all this Valentine's Day!
