That's a tough question, but I'm going to answer it off the top of my head. Other than some of my own characters, I'm going to have to say Claire and Jamie. I've been reading the books for years, and I love how they manage to stay together. I also love Mary and Dominic from Georgette Heyer's The Devil's Cub. And Frederica and Vernon in GH's Frederica. I'll stop now. (less)

Ella Quinn, Three Weeks to Wed

“Daisy!” He walked away from the tree, turning her so that she could not avoid looking at him, and used his most severe tone. “A well-behaved young lady does not attempt to dislocate her master’s shoulder.” She gave him a sorrowful look, and he was tempted to delude himself into thinking she understood, but just at that moment, the damned rodent scampered down the tree, and she tried to take off again. This time he was ready for her. Blinkers might be a good idea. *”

“An author is a writer who didn't give up.”
Richard Bach

“Is love a passionate embrace,
where you grab but cannot taste.
your lustfull urge will surely replace,
that bitter sweet pleasure that only leads to disgrace,”
