Elizabeth Bennet. C'mon... we all know every female book-geek secretly desires a day *cough* with Mr. Darcy.
Top three at the moment, in no particular order :
Orson Scott Card for his explorations of morality and humanity.
Anne Rice for the same, as well as her exceptional gift for sensual prose.
Haruki Murakami for all of the above, minus a bit of the sensuality and plus the dreamlike exploration of subconscious archetypes.
