Love, sex, romance. You'd be hard-pressed to find a worthwhile novel without one of these aspects of human interaction. Mr. Darcy and Heathcliff aside, some of the greatest lovers in history have charmed their way out of the pages of good books. Here's a sampling of the leading literary men in my life. Who are the men or women from yours?
