Favorite Sweethearts by Alicia Street

This is that special time of year when we celebrate sweethearts. Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and it’s Friday today so you can bet there will be plenty men taking their sweethearts out to dinner this evening. I know I’m going to have a big piece of chocolate cake for dessert. J

As a romance writer I often think about couples in books and movies who make us sigh and root for them to overcome the crazy obstacles in their path and find each other and to open their hearts to lasting love.

I cannot get enough of Claire and Jamie, and I have several versions of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy’s winding path to love both in film and print.

Allie and Noah squeeze our hearts in The Notebook, Scarlett and Rhett make us growl and shake our heads, and Catherine and Heathcliff make us cry for them.

Tristan and Iseult, Romeo and Juliet, Jane Eyre and Rochester, Hermione and Ron, Katniss and Peeta. So many shades of love, so many kinds of sweethearts.

My romance, The Sweetheart Test explores what happens when two people who are devoted to their careers discover what they want more than anything is love.

Who are your favorite sweethearts from books or movies?
