Hmm IDEALLY ideally I’m one of the rare birds who loves Georgette Heyer books and screwball comedies of the 30s, where there’s no bonking going on, just one big smackeroo at the end. Not because I’m a prude, I just love all the tension, everything under the surface, all witty dialogue, everything drawn out. But Jilly Cooper is great too, cause she writes big fat books where most of the characters are screwing like crazy, and there’s one sweet, more drawn out romance with little to no sex, so we all get what we want. 😉 I guess my books always have that sort of ending. My characters might kiss before, but I don’t write sex scenes.

But fave? Hm. Austen’s Persuasion, where Wentworth’s eavesdropping on Anne’s conversation where she’s saying that women are more constant than men, and he’s shaking and realizes MAYBE she still loves him, and he declares in a letter that he never stopped loving her these last 7 years. Persuasion is definitely one of Austen’s underrated romances. WHAT an ending.

Me too Clever, your entire first paragraph.

I’d be Happily Ever After right now if I won the lottery. Really, all that’s missing from my life is the cash. Or an income. That would be good too.

Really the only thing I need in a happily ever after is for the heroine and hero to love each other and plan to spend their lives together. I don’t need a marriage proposal, though that’s okay. And I’m not usually fond of an unplanned pregnancy, though there have been books where that was okay.

It’s hard to choose a favorite. Certainly one of my favorites is the one from Faking It where Davy takes Tilda of the many names to Australia aka their bed.

Another is from the Rachel Gibson book Truly Madly Yours. Mostly because I love the characters Nick an Delaney. Delaney is very sarcastic and snarky and the dialogue leading to their HEA reflects that.
