Couples in Love by Nina Crespo

I’m in love with love. Real or imaginary, it never fails to hit me right in the feels. I not only get my needed daily dose of it by writing romance stories but also through film. Here are five couples who recently inspired my continuing belief in happily-ever-after. (Spoilers may be ahead).

Age of Adaline (2015): It was clear that Adaline and Ellis were right for each other from the start. The thought of a miraculous occurrence coming between them was almost too much to bear. Luckily, truth, and the strength of love, give Adaline and Ellis a chance to remain together.

Far from the Madding Crowd (2015): Bathsheba Everdene was as headstrong and independent as Gabriel Oak was solid and steadfast. We’ve all had to learn a few hard, life lessons and so did Bathsheba. She experienced betrayal and loss and learned humility. Gabriel was strong enough not to let pride get in the way of forgiveness. In the end, they walk hand and hand into the future.

The War Bride (2000): The setting is World War II. Lily, a seamstress in England, marries Charlie who is a Canadian soldier. In a short time, they fall in love, get married, and while he’s fighting in the war, she has a child. A move to Canada, without Charlie, leaves her feeling like an outsider, but she sticks it out. He comes home, and they struggle, but by the final scene, you can imagine them moving forward together.

Thor (2011): Thor. Need I say more? We can’t have this completely lick worthy piece of eye candy all to ourselves, but Jane Foster can. Well…kind of. They experience a slice of happiness on Earth, but then he leaves and makes the noble sacrifice of remaining stranded in Asgard. But hope stays alive, and you can’t help but root for Jane to find a way to reopen the portal and reunite with him.

Why Did I Get Married (2007): Watching Sheila endure mistreatment from her husband, Mike, is infuriating as well as heartbreaking. You wish she’d drop Mike like a bad habit and move on up to Mr. Wonderful. She does, eventually, with the handsome Troy. Too bad. We feel so sad for Mike. NOT! Bullies don’t stand a chance against a couple united by true love.

The one night she’ll want to remember, she’ll be forced to forget.

It’s been almost a year since Celine’s fiancé’s death and she’s still struggling to move on. But when she meets Thane, the super hot lead singer of Thane’s Redemption, she finds her desire reawakening, and her heart opening. Soon one kiss leads them straight into a night of heated passion…

Thane’s unexpected connection with Celine only leaves him wanting more of her—but his life makes it impossible. For Thane’s Redemption is just a cover for a deeper secret: A former Army Ranger presumed dead, Thane is really a time-traveling, covert operative charged with saving the world from disaster. Each jump through time forces those around him to forget he ever existed—and Celine would be no exception. But can time work in their favor to give them a second chance at love? Or will a choice Thane makes in the future put Celine in mortal danger?…

Lauren isn’t looking for love when she spends a scintillating night with Reid, the sexy keyboardist of Thane’s Redemption. While their passion may be off the charts, her trust issues–and Reid’s secret life as a time-traveling covert agent–makes any chance for a relationship impossible.

When operatives involved in a mysterious project begin dying, Reid defies orders and travels alone into the future to find the cause. But when things go dangerously awry, it takes all of his strength to get himself back to safety–and directly onto Lauren’s doorstep. While neither of them remembers their night of passion, their intense connection leads Lauren to help him. But as Reid’s memories reignite, will he be forced to sacrifice everything to finish his mission–including the woman he loves?
