All About Romance is holding a poll for the top 100 romances.
The poll is open until October 31. I just submitted my list and it was harder
than I thought it would be. I probably disqualified myself by adding atypical (but romantic) titles. Plus I added two manga titles.

This is only a sample of my list and I’ve divided it into categories instead of the original rankings.
