Stephanie Barr is a part time novelist, full time rocket scientist and mother of three children and slave to three cats. She has three blogs, which are sporadically updated.

I'm a very romantic person and there are dozens of couples I fell in love with over the years. Things I love in a couple include humor and good banter, protective men (and women) and kickass women (and men). I like partnerships between equals. I also like couples where one or both come in a little broken and they help each other heal and grow.

If we're talking fiction, Miri Robertson and Val Con Yos'Phelium have to be one of my favorite couples from the Liaden novels. They're funny, both totally kick-butt heroes and devoted/tied to each other in ways I adore. Both have rescued the other several times and helped each other heal.

Another favorite is Roarke and Eve Dallas. Again, funny, brash, difficult people who care deeply for each other, fight with and for each other. Though, admittedly, Nora Roberts has many character pairings I love.

Another author with tons of pairings I love is Georgette Heyer. Duke of Avon and Leonie will always be a favorite, but I can think of dozens of other couples who delighted and continue to delight me.

As I try to narrow this down, more just come to mind, Aaaah! I read a lot of manga and can think of many many more that melted my heart or won me over.

If you're asking about MY OWN couples, I love all of them. I think you have to if you spend as much time with them as I do, but I would have to give the edge to Dante da Silva and Roxelle from Tarot Queen. Roxelle because she's the ultimate combination of experienced (300+ years old) and naivete (having never gone or done anything herself) and Dante is the world weary care-for-nobody who fell in love. I love that they both have to work through their differences, I love that they're both old enough TO work them out. I love how they change each other's perspectives and bring out the best from each other.

But I love all my couples. (less)

I do have some prequel short stories available for free pretty much everywhere except amazon in "Second Slavery".(less)
