Top Ten Favorite Love Stories in Books

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's top Ten is "10 Favorite Love Stories in Books". I am a sucker for a good love story. There are many that I have enjoyed-most recently Joanna and Llewelyn in Here be Dragons by Sharon Kay Penman and Oliver and Catrin in The Love Knot by Elizabeth Chadwick. There are only a select few that have stuck with me though. Without further ado, my top 10.......

1. Scarlett and Rhett in Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

2. Claire and Jamie in Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

3. Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy in Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

4. Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

5. Deanna Troi and William Riker in Imzadi by Peter David

6. Lorena Wood & Gus McCrae in Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry

7. Julia Grey and Nicholas Brisbane in Silent on the Moor by Deanna Raybourn

8. Marianne & Colonel Brandon in Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen

9. Sorcha and Hugh in Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier

10. Ron and Hermione in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J K Rowling

And there you have it. My top 10!


  1. Numbers 1, 2, and 7 would make my list, too! This meme looks fun, I think I'll head over to the host page and check it out! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Thank you for visiting and commenting on my list! Happy that you have chosen Marianne and Col. Brandon, too. ;")

  3. I so wanted to put #1 and #3 on my list but I haven't read them yet!

  4. Very pleased to meet another Trek lit fan here in the blogging community -- have you read any of the modern books? In the "Titan" series, Riker and Troi are married with a child, exploring the far reaches of the galaxy in the good ship USS Titan.

  5. Hey Holly - thanks so much for visiting my blog - and for sharing your list - you have some very original choices and a few which were completely new to me!

  6. Love Brisbane and Julia in Silent on the Moor! So many good moments in that novel.

  7. Penman, Chadwick, Gabaldon, Raybourn - all fantastic choices!
