Dum-da-dum-dum….Before the couple voting begins below, I wanted to take a quick moment to share the new cover for Allegiance (Penton Legacy 4)! This is Cage’s book and will be released on June 10. I went way outside the box on this one, so I’m anxious to see what people think (bites nails and wonders how she’ll wait until June).
Unfortunately, this spiffy new blog template apparently does not believe in art any larger than postage-stamp sized, so here’s the best I can do…Click on the little Cage and you can see the big Cage–LOL.
Also, I’m at the Darkest Cravings blog today, answering some kind of unusual questions that made me really think about what constitutes adult fiction. You can enter there for the Lovely, Dark, and Deep tour prizes as well, including a $50 gift card to your retailer of choice.
Okay, for the Fictional Couple Poll, and a chance for an Amazon or Book Depo gift card.
Every Friday, I post a “Top Five” list on the Lady Scribes blog, but here and on my Facebook page is where I collect votes, so weigh in!
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I thought it would be a good time to vote for our favorite fictional couple. This was also spurred by last week’s JK Rowling interview wherein she admitted that Hermione and Ron probably shouldn’t have been a couple. It always was an odd pairing; I think Hermione would be extremely bored in the long run.
There are some couples I love, though. And some couples I want to see.
Cat and Bones (Jeaniene Frost). Well, they’re perfect, aren’t they? I mean, what’s NOT to like about Bones? Sometimes I think Cat doesn’t deserve him, but hey, that’s what romantic heroes are all about. We want them for ourselves.
Zsadist and Bella (JR Ward). Sigh. I mean, Rhage could’ve done better; Mary’s kind of a mouse. Don’t EVEN get me started on how my man V got cheated. Phury always kinda bored me. Butch could’ve done better too. But JR Ward so got it right with both Wrath and Beth and with Z and Bella. Z’s story is just so compelling, though, and his journey was so huge.
Rachel and Trent (Kim Harrison….Stop groaning, Roger!) I’ve been waiting for Rach and Trent Kalamack to get their big bad selves together for twelve freaking books now. Do it already; you owe us for the whole Kisten debacle. Dooooo iiiiiit….
Sookie and Quinn (Charlaine Harris). Was it just me, or did anyone else like that big old tiger? He got such a quick heave-ho, it made me want to growl and claw somebody’s eyes out. Soo-kay, I’m lookin’ at you.
Mercy and Adam (Patricia Briggs). Perfect, perfect, perfect. Adam is macho and pigheaded, but smart enough to admit it, and Mercy is intelligent and knows exactly how to handle Adam. They’re great together.
So there’s my five faves. What about you? Tell me your No. 1 favorite fictional couple—either one of these, or one from another series or book—and I’ll pick one commenter for a $5 Amazon gift card (or equivalent from Book Depo if international). Help your favorite make the top 5 on Friday’s post!
