message 1: by Nathan (new)

Nathan Delter I'm shocked that A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks was not added to this list. It rightfully deserves to be here and I strongly suggest it be added. It is a perfect example of sacrifice for true love through sickness and should be recognized as such as it really moved me and caused me to appreciate what real love is.


namericanwordcat You can add it. However, Romance novels should end in an Happily Ever After or Happy for Now and that one may not.
