Verklaringen
: Great book, but doesn't belong on the list of great love stories.
sturlington: Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester are one of the great literary couples, who establish a marriage based on mutual respect and equality. "Reader, I married him."

Verklaringen
sturlington: A proposal in Latin. It doesn't get much more erudite than that.

Verklaringen
Linkmeister: Miles Vorkosigan woos Ekaterin in his own way. The book leans heavily on the form created by Georgette Heyer. It's even DEDICATED to "Jane, Charlotte, Georgette, and Dorothy." A true comedy of manners.
kgodey: I don't think this one would be as good if we didn't have tons of books preceding it where Miles fails to acquire his Lady Vorkosigan (and rightly so). But I can't add the whole series to the list, so this will have to do.
Merryann: This was the first Bujold book I ever read and I found it delightful in so very many ways. The love story was deeply satisfying to me and the humor just right.

elkiedee : Excellent novel, but see comments on Rebecca above - the same could be said of a few of the novels here really.
