Regrets: What Book’s Couple Should Have Been Different?

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has been in the news lately saying that she regrets having Ron and Hermione pair off at the end of the series, and that Harry and Hermione would have been a better match.

Are there any romance novels you've read where the hero or heroine ended up (in your opinion) with the wrong person?

it's not so much that the hero or heroine should have ended up with a different character in the book that irks me. Rather, it is that I fail to believe the romance between the two main characters or I feel that one of them should have run screaming from the relationship!

Here's the obvious: "Scandal in Spring" by Lisa Kleypas pairs Daisy with someone other than Cam...I was sad because I didn't like Cam's ultimate match in the first Hathaway book "Mine Til Midnight" either.

I thought Whitney in "Whitney My Love" should have wound up with Nicholas, but I loathed that book mostly because I thought Clayton was a psycho.

The classic. Jo and Laurie should have married in Little Women. I never liked Amy and she wasn't right for him anyway! This seriously damaged my faith in books when I was a child; until then I'd know subconsciously that everything in books always ended up just as it should. Maybe that's why I like romances now? - it's in the contract that there will be a happy ending!

It's not a book, but I always thought "Pretty in Pink" had the wrong ending. Andie should have ended up with Duckie, to hell with Bland, I mean Blane.

Mary Jo Putney's Petals in the Storm featured a character named
Lord Robert Andreville who could well have been the hero. In many ways, he seemed a more sympathetic character than the hero.
