30 Day Love-Meme, Day 14  
Back to work this week, and it was loooong. I was sick two days, and worked 13-15 hour days the others, so yeah, did not get to the memes at all. I'll be posting each day I've missed periodically throughout the weekend to catch up.

Day 14 - What is your favorite book pairing?

Christian and Maddy, Flowers from the Storm

I thought of going with Rhett and Scarlett from Gone with the Wind, but let's be honest here, they didn't exactly have the healthiest, happiest of love stories, and for me to win this category, the pairings got to have a happy ending, so Christian and Maddy from Laura Kinsale's Flowers from the Storm it is. This is actually one of my favorite books of all time. Yes, it's an historical romance, but it's one of the best-written books I've ever read, and it generally makes the top two in every best historical romance novel of all time lists, and has since it was released in 1992. It's utterly brilliant and devastating, and the love story between the debauched, stroke-stricken Duke of Jervaulx (Christian) and Maddy Timms, a spinster Quaker is compelling, hot, incredibly deep, full-blown, heart-breaking and just all-around MAGNIFICENT.
