The Swoonies 2016: The Nominations!

THE SWOONIES NOMINATION PERIOD HAS ENDED. 

Check back on February 14 to see who made it into the first round!

Last year, Outlander's Jamie and Claire were crowned king and queen of all the Epic Couples in Romancelandia! This year, we're doing things a little different, including the addition of a nominations period, so here's the lowdown: 

Love has no rules, but The Swoonies must have a few:

1. Any couple can be nominated, even if they've never had their own book, but we've seen their romance play out as secondary characters. If there's an excessive number of nominations, the Heroes and Heartbreakers editorial team will determine which pairings make the final cut for the tourney.

2. The couple must appear in a book that was published between January 21, 2015, and today, January 20, 2016 (i.e. Mac and Barrons of Feverborn is fair game, but Jamie and Claire are not eligible for 2015).

3. Feel free to nominate as many couples as your heart desires, and share the love on social media, but please play nice in the comment section. Love lifts us all—even during a competition!

4. Have fun! 

So hurry up and fill the comment section below with your nominations. The official launch of Heroes and Heartbreakers 2016 Epic Couples Battle will be Sunday, February 14—our fifth birthday!—so check back then to see if your nominees snagged a spot in Round 1!

Let the nominating begin!

ETA: Nominations close at End of Day January 26, so tag your favorite authors and make sure you get in your votes for the most Swoonworthiest Couples!

My vote goes to Det. Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke from the In Death series of J.D. Robb, which I started a few months ago.

I know that the series started in 1995 but two (and 1/2) books did come out in 2015, so it counts right? I like that they've barely aged 3 years in those 20 years of writing, and are still madly in love and passionate even among all the murders and mayhem they deal with in their lives. Both strong alphas, but he is sooo romantic with her... Yum...

I nominate Hugo and Zelda from Behind The Mask by Carolyn Crane.

With an ambiguous , dark hero , reminiscent of some of Anne Stuart's heroes who barely stay this side of the 'good' line,who seemed quite capable of killing the heroine and, indeed , at one time, it appeared that he actually would!It also had a clever , driven heroine with demons of her own who was just as strong and as dangerous as the hero. The chemistry, danger and emotion between these two was electric. It is rare to find such intense, emotional sex scenes that also manage to actually be different and inventive.These two redeemed and saved each other! One of the most original, hottest and memorable couples I have read this year.

Lets hope the 'swoonies' have some new blood in the nominations this year and not just 'the usual suspects'.

I think my favorite couple of all time is the mismatched pair from Georgette Heyer's 'A Civil Contract'.

Adam Deveril, the Viscount Lynton, recently discharged from the British Army becuase of the sudden death of his father, marries a wealthy heiress, Jenny Chawleigh. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it reflects reality rather than a fanciful daydream.
