I will most likely miss so many great fictional couples from the novels I have read and I apologise in advance for that.

The Deverry Cycle by Katherine Kerr probably has the most memorable couple that first comes to mind. Nevyn (pronounced No-One) and Jill live in a Celtic rebirth cycle where Nevyn must fulfil his oath to the gods. The love that spans rebirth and generations moves from novel to novel and pulls you along, hoping for closure and a final joy of an oath fulfilled.

I highly recommend the Deverry books. They are among my favourites.(less)

It is a mystery to me and one that could be explored in a novel. I know the answer lies in science and evolution but it is so fascinating. Don't you think?(less)
