Favorite Literary Couples VI

Every year on Valentine’s Day, I post a list of fictional couples I’ve loved from books that I’ve read in the previous year. You can check out posts from years past through these links: 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014. I can’t believe this is the sixth time I’ve created a list like this!

Medair and her love interest from Medair by Andrea K. Host – I’m being purposely vague to avoid spoilers but I just wanted to say that I really loved the slow burn and unexpected romance in this duology. More readers need to pick up Andrea K. Host’s books (one of my fave couples from last year was from her Touchstone trilogy).

Layla and Matt from Once Upon a Rose by Laura Florand – I’m a huge Laura Florand fangirl (see Amour et Florand) and she’s one of my go-to contemporary romance authors. Loved this sweet and tentative romance set in the beautiful region of Provence, the first full-length novel in what is sure to be a lovely series.

Nevada and Mad Rogan from Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews – Ilona and Gordon’s books are auto-read for me and they gave me another couple to love in Nevada and Rogan. Love-hate romance filled with banter that will span a whole trilogy? Yes, please!

Rikker and Graham from The Understatement of the Year by Sarina Bowen – I believe this is the first time I’ve read a male-male romance and I adored it. I loved the whole Ivy Series by Sarina Bowen but Rikker and Graham’s bittersweet story lingered with me days after I finished reading the book. These two just went through so much together.

Sidney and Vaughn from It Happened One Wedding by Julie James – It’s always fun to read a Julie James novel because it’s like a chick flick in book form. Really enjoyed the banter in this one and I liked that Sidney is a bit older than the heroines in Julie’s earlier books (and therefore has a different set of problems).

Runners-up for the past year are:
The couples from Virginia Kantra’s Dare Island series because I couldn’t choose just one
Anna and Lincoln from Girl Before a Mirror by Liza Palmer
Reagan and Matt from Open Road Summer by Emery Lord
Mili and Samir from A Bollywood Affair by Sonali Dev
Sarah and Patrick from The Chocolate Temptation by Laura Florand

Who are your favorite fictional couples from books that you’ve read within the previous year? Are you planning to do anything special this Valentine’s weekend? I don’t have anything planned but will definitely try my best to curl up with a romantic book sometime this weekend. Happy Hearts Day, everyone!

  1. I love that you have been doing this feature for so many years now! I wish I had, actually, it is such a cool idea (I might join in next year). I like that you have Emery Lord’s book on there as a runner up. I am super hopeful that I will love her new book (out in a few weeks!)

    I went out on valentines day with Paula Weston and then with my sister 🙂 It just worked out that way… Lots of couples aorund at the cafes we went to. Feels like ages ago already. Hope you are well and the move wasn’t too hideous x

    • Nomes, feel free to join me next year! Tell you what, I can even remind you a week or so before Valentine’s Day. 🙂 I’m also surprised at how long I’ve been doing this. Also looking forward to Emery Lord’s next book. I’ve heard good things about it to from those who have read review copies.

      Wow, sounds like you had an awesome Valentine’s. 🙂 Still super tired from the move (which was yesterday). Looks like it’s going take a while for me to unpack all of my stuff. Hopefully I can squeeze in a blog post sometime soon. We’ll see. 😛
