Monica suggested this one:
Got this idea from Literary Feline during her recent contest:
“Name a favorite literary couple and tell me why they are a favorite. If you cannot choose just one, that is okay too. Name as many as you like–sometimes narrowing down a list can be extremely difficult and painful. Or maybe that’s just me.”

The first one that comes to my mind is of course the widely popular Elizabeth Bennett and Fitzwilliam Darcy. I love men who are mysterious and charming in a different way, if you know what I mean. While reading Pride and Prejudice, I always wondered what was going on in Darcy’s mind. I guess there are so many post P&P books, I am sure I will find one with Darcy’s point of view. I remember reading about one on someone’s blog, but I can’t seem to recall it.
Next up is another obvious choice Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler. I found Scarlett a very different heroine. I detested her right from the start and in a way detested Rhett for loving a woman like her so completely. But somewhere at the end of the story I thought, ‘well, they are suitable for each other any way’. I don’t want to read the sequel ‘Scarlett’. I somehow am not ready to watch them reunite. I like the end as it is.
Although I have liked so many couplets in books, but none come to my mind right now. I guess the two above have created such an impression that they overshadow the rest. I’ll add more if I remember any.
