What are your top 5 favorite kissing scenes (from movies, tv shows, books, real life etc.) and why?
Top, top, top scene would be Joanna Bourne’s The Black Hawk when Hawker and Justine are in the dark, rainy garden, hopelessly in love, but on opposite sides of a war that will rage for twenty years. Jo’s language, her ability to counterpoint lush, symbolic description with spare dialogue, the cold of the garden with the heat of passion, the carnal attraction with the healing baptism of the rain… it’s an overwhelmingly beautiful scene. Pure, dark chocolate genius. I say that as a writer, but also as somebody who’s read romance for forty years.
The kiss ending North and South, for reasons which ought to be apparent to anybody who’s watched it.
When Rhett kisses Scarlett in Gone with The Wind (a twofer), both in the book and on screen. Rhett and Scarlett both begin the story as shallow characters, but he, at least grows, and his kisses say that, especially his kisses good-bye, when he goes off to war, and when he goes off to life free of Scarlett at the end of the movie.
Then there’s a lovely kiss in Loretta Chase’s Not Quite a Lady. Hero and heroine are managing quite well, thinking their way through every aspect of life, when loneliness ambushes them both, clobbers them in the guise of mutual attraction, and—oopsie!—luscious kisses. Perfect!
Hannah Stark has set her sights on corporate law to assure her a career of paperwork, predictability, and conservative suits. Contracts, finance, and the art of the deal sing to her, while the mess and misery of the courtroom do not. But her daughter needs to eat, so when Hannah is offered a temporary position in a small town firm's domestic relations department, she reluctantly accepts.
Trent Knightley is mightily drawn to his newest associate, though Hannah is as protective of her privacy as she is competent. When their friendship and attraction heat up, Hannah's secrets put her heart and Trent's hopes in double jeopardy.
