Two weeks ago, I featured "Opposites That Attract" on Top 10 Tuesday. I found that my list was so long I had to break it up into two posts! So this week get ready for Part 2!
10. Henry and Kate from The Weaver's Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd
He's a mill owner, she's a weaver's daughter, and their families have been feuding for decades. Although their families' professions make them natural opponents, these two can't help but be drawn to one another causing more friction within the warring community in the process.
9. Ben & Sarah from The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner
Another opposites attract where very different professions are involved. He's a widowed pastor, she's a divorced erotic romance novelist. Albeit, Sarah becomes a Christ-follower and dumps the trashy writing to become a Christian fiction writer by the time they meet. As they navigate her newfound faith and their quickly budding romance, two imperfect people find a beautiful love story that is only strengthened during tragedy.
8. Levi & Natalie from The Widow of Rose Hill by Michelle Shocklee
These two are literally on opposite sides of a war. He's an officer for the Union army. She's a widow of a Confederate soldier who now owns the family plantation. When his unit shows up on her doorstep to ensure that her former slaves receive their freedom, both angst and sparks ignite!
7. Adam & Lexie from Sandpiper Cove by Irene Hannon
A quiet, humble ex-con and the local widowed police chief become an unconventional match and discover a future together in one of my favorites, Sandpiper Cove.
6. Nathaniel & Kitty from So True a Love by Amber Lynn Perry
These two already shared a fleeting attraction and friendship from the first book in this series, but when unrest in Boston makes Kitty a permanent resident in Nathaniel's hometown of Sandwich, their attraction becomes magnetic beckoning them to something deeper. But as opponents on the political realm- he's a staunch patriot, she's a devoted Tory- their very different views cause friction that may obliterate any chance at love.
5. Colin & Georgina from An Elegant Façade by Kristi Ann Hunter
He's an untitled business man who abhors Georgina's methods of finding a husband. She's a Duke's daughter bent on finding an appropriate match to a titled aristocrat in hopes of protecting her social status and hiding the deep pain behind a secret. However, when Colin uncovers her secret and seeks to help her, these two hearts can't help but be drawn to each other.
4. Ryland & Miranda from A Noble Masquerade by Kristi Ann Hunter
Colin's best friend, Ryland, and Georgina's older sister, Miranda, also find themselves woefully mismatched at the beginning of this novel. Disguised as his friend Griffith's valet, Ryland finds himself intrigued by the beautiful Lady Miranda. She, in turn, surprisingly finds herself attracted to her brother, Griffith's, valet "Marlow". In her fourth season and on the fast track to becoming a spinster, Miranda wonders at the reasonableness of her perplexing attraction to a servant. And then, she discovers "Marlow's" real identity...and the games begin!!! One of my favorite book couples!
3. John & Nora from True to You by Becky Wade
He's a former Navy SEAL. She's a quirky book worm with a vintage hairdo. Together on a quest to search for John's birth parents, they find love while learning that their pasts are similarly laced with heartache and tragedy.
2. Noble & Liberty from The Lacemaker by Laura Frantz
Another love threatened by opposing political views, Noble is a strong defender of the patriot cause while Liberty was raised by a Tory father. When turmoil erupts in Williamsburg and Liberty finds her home is destroyed and she has been abandoned by her father, an unusual alliance between the two leads to a welcome romance.
1. Red Shirt and Morrow from Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz
Another favorite by Laura Frantz! His people murdered her mother and sister and kidnapped her brother. She is a preacher's daughter unable to forgive the Shawnee for their heinous crimes. However, Red Shirt and Morrow find that their connection and the love that has grown between them and is deeper than their sorrows paves the way for a beautiful new future together that heals past wounds.
And there you have it! My favorite "opposites that attract"! Who are some others I can add to the list next time?
