Guest Post – My Top Five Romantic Moments In Literature by Rachelle Paige


I am super excited to have been asked to be part of the blog tour for this fabulous new self published adult romance book Tidal Patterns (Golden Shores #1) by Rachelle Paige.

Tidal Patterns was released on the 12th April 2016 published in ebook and is set to be a romantic read.

A huge thank you to Faye Rogers and Rachelle Paige for having me on this wonderful tour.

For my stop on the blog tour I have a brilliant guest post from Rachelle about her Top Five Romantic Moments In Literature …..


Elizabeth Shaw is the preeminent, and only, wedding planner at the historic beach resort on Jekyll Island. She’s sure she’ll land the newly created role overseeing all major events. Then she’ll get a raise and won’t be forced to leave. 

Mark Edwards doesn’t need any more stress. He’s ready to slow down and enjoy the tiny seaside town he calls home. His boss pushes him to apply for the new management position and he agrees. After a decade in catering, he’s sure he can do the events job without any trouble.

Neither counted on the other getting in the way.

My Top Five Romantic Moments In Literature

My top five romantic moments in literature all happen in moments of high tension and stress in their respective novels. Without conflict, the romance can’t shine. In real-life, we don’t really want to contrast a moment of elation with despair. I love reading these scenes.



The moment Edward explains to Eleanor that his brother married Edward’s former fiancée in Sense and Sensibility



Mr. Darcy’s second proposal in Pride and Prejudice



When Mr. Rochester proposes to Jane in Jane Eyre



Father Ralph confronting Meghan after she rides off from Mary’s New Year’s celebration in The Thornbirds



The kiss in the rain in The Notebook
