What a clever idea for a post. My favorite literary romances include:

-Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester from "Jane Eyre"

-Heathcliff and Cathy from "Wuthering Heights"

To be totally juvenile, I've always thought that the romance between Harry Potter and Ginny was lovely. :)

Wesley & Buttercup, very cute,
