Some interesting books mentioned so far. Yes I would have to agree with the likes of Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre although I also agree that Wuthering Heights was more about obsession than love.
I would like to add Dicken's Great Expectations - in spite of the way Estelle treated Pip until the end, it was a great love story. To an extent, Rebecca is a good love story - Mrs De W's love for Maxim triumphs over a lot of adversity. In Gone with the Wind, the love interest in question is Tara and Ashley Wilkes and of course Scarlett herself:)
H E Bates wrote some good love stories, Love for Lydia and Fair Stood the Wind for France stand out.
Mmm, will have to think of some more.
