Pigs fly, it gets cold in the devil's playground, and George Clooney has gotten engaged.
The man who once said, "I don't expect to ever get married again or have children,” has reportedly asked his girlfriend Amal Alamuddin to tie the knot, reducing the number of handsome rakes by one.
George Clooney is just the latest rakish male to be felled by love; that type of hero is very common in romance, and it always takes a special woman to get him to settle down. There are some heroes you can't ever imagine finding just one woman to love, but when you read their story, you know the guy was just waiting for the right woman.
Who's your favorite (now settled) handsome rake in romance?
