[quote=""sharon""]I think I'd vote for Jamie and Claire's wedding night scene in Outlander.
This will really date me, but I remember being very impressed by the love scenes in Forever Amber. But my final vote still goes to Diana Gabaldon, who must need to write with a fire extinguisher on hand to keep the pages from catching fire!

I totally concur! Gabbaldon's Jaimy and Claire are on fire! I loved Forever Amber as well, it is one of my top ten reads! Ha, ha!
Several people have said that the scenes in Here Be Dragons are smokin' too. I'm not that far into the novel yet, but can hardly wait! :D Loving what I have read so far though...bravo!

I'd have to give it to one of the 8 million love scenes in Outlander. Or maybe Voyager when they had their reunion. I'm a sucker for the sweet love scenes.

I loved Voyager! It's my favorite of the Outlander books! Their reunion was soo different and not at all what I was expecting!

Can I nominate a passage from one of EC's novels?

Let me set the scene: I am sitting in my fav cafe, book in one hand coffee in the other. The book is The Love Knot, at the bit where Caitlin and Lewis re-meet....very erm...thought provoking!
A good book and a good coffee, what more can anyone want? xx
