It's In His Kiss......

I'm ankle deep into writing my next book for Harlequin Special Edition and like always, fall a little in love with my hero. This one is extra special...cowboy, widowed single dad...you get the picture. So, I'm at the kissing part...their first kiss. The kiss that will never be had again. And there's the usual pressure to 'get it right'. The right place, the right moment, the right mood.



Which of course got me thinking about favourite kisses...that's 'screen' kisses.

 
Like the scene in The NoteBook where they're kissing in the rain


Or When Richard Gere and Julia Roberts kiss in Pretty Woman ......sigh.....

 

Or when Chris Hemsworth kisses Natalie Portman in Thor.....still sighing....


Here's an old favourite, but still relevant.....
 


Do you have a favourite screen kiss?

  1. Well, it has to be said - the kiss in 'North and South' is a corker. We wait so long for them finally to declare their feelings. It doesn't matter that they're on the platform between trains, they're totally wrapped up in each other. Sigh worthy!

    Good luck, Helen, getting that kiss just right!

  2. I totally do! It's another kiss-in-the-rain: Breakfast At Tiffany's. And Like Annie's favourite, it's been a long anticipation for that first smooch so it's wonderful when it doesn't letdown the long build.

    1. Hi Bronwyn - I am so in love with George Peppard in the Breakfast At Tiffany's scene.....poor Cat in the rain. I kinda love George Peppard in anything though - have you ever seen him in Home From The Hill? One of my favourite movies....he's so hot an heroic in it. Sigh.

  3. Smooch scenes! I love your list, Helen - some I've seen but others I haven't. And that Cher song sums it up beautifully doesn't it!

    here are a couple of my favourite movie kisses that leap to mind...

    This one in Indiana Jones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1Mol2c-pxI Sadly they've had to remove the sound track but he's been battered about in the previous scenes and in this one too when she flips the mirror! They're trying to find a spot that doesn't hurt so she can kiss him.

    And there's an incredible "almost kiss" in The Wedding Date! (happy sigh)

  4. Great topic, Helen. I do love a first kiss scene! :-)

    I love so many of them and I love Sharon's suggestion - that's a great kissing scene.

    Another really good one is in Stanger Than Fiction with Maggie Gyllenhal and Will Farrell. And, because I klnow you love this movie as much as me, Helen I'm going to include the one between Barbara and Jeff in The Mirror Has Two Faces. And I dont think you can go past the seven years in the making kiss between Donna and Josh on West Wing.

    I could go on and on.... :-)

  5. Hi AA - I haven't seen Stranger Than Fiction....will check that one out. As for Babs and Jeff.....sigh....one of my all time favourite movie endings. I have the full seasons of West Wing to watch....will get into it once I type The End on the book. :)
