Literary Lovers Results

Who is your favorite Literary Couple?

I recently ran a contest for the book giveaway of Robin Maxwell's newest novel, O, Juliet.
The entrants were required to tell me who their favorite literary lovers were. Since it is Valentine's Day, I decided to tally up the entries and post the mentions that were duplicated more than once. If a single commenter mentioned more than one couple, I only counted the one they mentioned first.

THE WINNER of the FAVORITE Literary Lovers with NINE mentions is.....

Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler of the book/movie Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

Runner up with EIGHT mentions are

Elizabeth Bennett and Fitzwilliam Darcy, of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Honorable mentions with 2 votes each are:
Jamie and Claire from the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
Anthony and Cleopatra
Catherine & Heathcliff from Bronte's Wuthering Heights
Emma Woodhouse and Mr. George Knightly of Emma by Jane Austen

Happy Valentine's Day!
