Top Ten Tuesday: Romances

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

As is appropriate for Valentine's week, this week's prompt is our top ten favorite romances.

Top Ten Romances

1. Lily and Gabe in Bamboo & Lace by Lori Wick
Love their patience, obedience, kindness, caring, and love.

2. Inez and {I can’t tell you who!} in El Rey: A Novel of Renaissance Iberia by Ginger Myrick
Love the development of the characters and the trials they go through.

3. Morrow and {I can’t tell you who!} in Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz

Oh my. Loved it.

4. Valancy and {Ican't tell who you!} in The Blue Castle by L. M. Montgomery

I'm so glad a friend introduced me to this little gem. Love it.

5. Shelby and Nick in The Princess by Lori Wick
Just because I really like this book.

6. Karja and {I can't tell who you!} in Die Pyramide des Sonnengottes by Karl May
I may or may not have reread the scene on top of the pyramid a few times.

7. Kate and Matt in My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade
Fabulous debut novel with realistic people.

8. Old Shatterhand and {I can't tell who you!} in Winnetou I by Karl May
Old Shatterhand and Ntscho-tschi from the German movies
It's sad though, but sweet. And ends way too soon.

9. Aethelbald and Una in Heartless by Anne Elizabeth Stengl
He is the perfect suitor, too bad she doesn't realize it at the beginning.

  1. Hadassah and Marcus in the Mark of the Lion Series by Francine Rivers...hands down! :-)

    1. A friend at school here is reading that series right now! It's been ages since I've read them but they are good. Thanks so much for commenting! Didn't realize that you knew about my blog! :-)

    1. I replied yesterday but I guess the internet didn't like me. They are a fun couple! Liked your Lori Wick choices as well!

  3. Ooo, Iberia! I need to read The Blue Castle.

  4. Yep, Iberia! It's a great book. And you definitely should read Blue Castle! Another great book!

  5. You have listed several here that I have not read, so I will have to check them out. I would especially like to read The Blue Castle.
    New follower, looking forward to your posts.

    1. Thanks Grace! Sorry it's taken me a while to respond. The Blue Castle is definitely worth reading! Welcome!

  6. Hi, Rina! I hope you are well. May God shower you with blessings for your selfless act. I feel so honored to see El Rey in your top ten. That book will always hold special place in my heart. Thank you so much for your support. It means the world!

  7. I LOVE Bamboo & Lace! I may need to go read it again!

    1. You should Julie! And this summer I want to borrow that medical drama story you told me about last summer!

  8. Eanrin and Imraldera are my favorite literary couple from The Tales of Goldstone Wood. And right up there is Eugenides and Irene from The Queen's Thief series. They are unbelievably awesome...and unexpected.

    1. They are a very fun literary couple. Eanrin especially is quite cool. Now I'm really looking forward to reading The Queen's Thief series. Thanks Hannah!
