Happy Romance Month!

February is the month we celebrate Valentine's Day, so I  thought I'd start out the month with  a bang. In honor Valentine's Day, I'm giving away a $25 Amazon gift card to one lucky person. All you need to do is post your list of your top FIVE favorite couples from romance books. I'll pick and announce the winner on February 14th.
Good luck!

Top 5 Couples from Romance Books
There are other character couples I love, especially Scarlett and Rhett from GWTW, but arguably that's not a true romance book. So, my Scarlett-less list is as follows:

Jessica Trent and Sebastian Ballister, The Lord of Scoundrels (Loretta Chase)

Maddy Timms and Christian Langland, Flowers from the Storm (Laura Kinsale)

Francesca Bridgerton and Michael Stirling, When He Was Wicked (Julia Quinn)

Genevieve Eversea and Alexander Moncrieffe, What I Did for a Duke (Julie Anne Long)

Eve Dallas and Roarke, In Death series (J.D.Robb)

Thanks for a fun contest.

3. Thomas Blackwood and Madeleine Dumais, Adele Ashworth, Winter Garden
