Thousands of letters arrive every month, asking for advice from Shakespeare's tragic fictional heroine, and each letter is answered by a volunteer in the Juliet Club. The movie "Letters To Juliet" starring Amanda Seyfried and Vanessa Redgrave is based on the non-fiction book by Lise Friedman about this extraordinary service that has become a phenomenon. (less)

Sorry for the delay in responding, but my husband and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary 2/6, the day your question arrived. As a romance author, married to the love of my life, I can vouch for the fact that true love exists. Reading about committed couples in romance novels reminds us that lifelong love is possible. I wish a lifetime of happiness for all my readers.

I'm not sure if your question is specific to my books or other romance authors. I'm probably like a lot of readers and love Outlander hero and heroine Jamie and Clarie best. In my books, I'm partial to all my heroes and heroines--after all, they're part of my psyche--but my favorites might be Legs and Jack in LIP SERVICE or Amanda and Mickey in NATURALLY YOURS. Or maybe Victoria and Steve in LUXURY MODEL WIFE. You decide.

Big hugs--Adele(less)
