Wow, I don't recognize many of those on the list. I would think any romance handbook should include a few characters from Marvel/Atlas/Timely's romance line (unless there are a few there and I just didn't recognize the names), as well as their humor line (since many of the humor books revolved around romance), such as:

Kathy Carter
Linda Carter
Hedy De Vine
Margie
Millie's supporting cast (her fellow models, as well as Clicker)
Nellie the Nurse
Sherry the Showgirl
Tessie the Typist

Maybe a character or two from the many romance anthologies as well (such as My Love)

And how could you have a handbook about famous lovers and romance without an entry for Cleopatra?

Stuart Vandal wins the No-Prize!...except for the one I screwed up:

Leila Davis was supposed to be Leila Taylor, girlfriend of Sam Wilson/Falcon/Captain America. I confused her with Leila Davis, aka Hardshell and later Beetle of the Redeemers, who was covered as such in the last A-Z mini. I can only say, Hey, two women with the name Leila, what are the odds, right?

(Seriously, my last job, I met four different guys named "Quentin" in the first two years. How many people even know one guy named Quentin, let alone FOUR?)

I completely forgot about Beverly Switzler. *facepalm* Gail Runciter I left off because as far as I could tell while doing my research, her attraction to Steve Rogers/Cap was never really returned. Same reason I left off "Pug" Pugliese from She-Hulk and god knows how many unrequited crushes. And I definitely did my best to leave off stalkers like Jonathan Caesar. I ultimately left Marlo Chandler (the Hulk/Joe Fixit, Rick Jones, and Moondragon) because I figured there was a slim possibility she might get an entry for real, or was that so the list wouldn't get too long? Same with Itsu, Daken's mom/Logan's wife. And two Olympians I left off because I figured, as gods, they probably have a better chance of getting entries: Hebe (Herc's wife who went on a date with Peter Parker) and Cupid (the god of love!).

And Lee Forrester...I stumbled upon her by accident. In addition to being linked to Cyclops and Magneto, she's also been linked with Cable (!) and, when last seen, with Skull the Slayer. (Cyclops AND Cable?....)

And vanhornluke, I must defer to your knowledge of the romance and humor comics of days of yore.

Any other suggestions?
