Folks who study romance are just more fun. The International Association for the Study of Popular Romance is running one of the most creative fundraisers I’ve seen yet. Called “It Takes Two”, they’re asking people to pitch in a two dollar donation in honor of (here’s the good bit) their favorite romance novel couples. Tres cool, no? You submit your two dollars via the donation button on IASPR’s website, and then pop by Teach Me Tonight and leave a comment. For the official rules, click here.
In honor of IASPR’s efforts and all our favorite romance novel heroes and heroines, near and far, I’m running an impromptu contest.
The question is: who is YOUR favorite fictional couple?
Once all the answers are in, I’ll pick ten posts and make donations to IASPR’s It Takes Two fund in honor of those characters. Currently, I’m planning to pick posts at random, but if I find that certain sets of characters are getting lots more votes than others, they may have to jump to the top of the donation queue….
I’ve already made a donation on behalf of Charlotte and Robert from Night Jasmine. (I have a feeling that Lord Vaughn and Mary are probably indignant about this. I’m sure Henrietta and Miles are taking it in stride). The rest of the winning couples will be announced here on Friday. So pick your pairings and stay tuned!
