Safe Haven (2013)

This deeply moving romantic thriller tells the story of a young woman's struggle to find love again after she arrives in a small North Carolina town.

When a mysterious young woman (Julianne Hough) arrives in Southport, her reluctance to join the tight-knit community raises questions about her past. Slowly, she begins putting down roots and gains the courage to start a relationship with Alex (Josh Duhamel), a widowed store owner with two young children. But dark secrets intrude on her new life with such terror that she is forced to rediscover the meaning of sacrifice and finds she must rely on the power of love.

The Lucky One (2012)

Zac Efron stars with Taylor Schilling and Blythe Danner in this romantic drama directed by Academy Award®-nominated writer/director Scott Hicks. U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq with the one thing he credits for keeping him alive -- a photograph he found of a woman he doesn't even know. Learning her name is Beth and where she lives, he shows up at her door, and ends up taking a job at her family-run local kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and the complications in her life, a romance develops between them, giving Logan hope that Beth could be much more than his good luck charm.

While meeting only sporadically, they stay in touch by sending a stream of love letters which eventually triggers fateful consequences.

Nights in Rodanthe (2008)

This rich tale of hearts awakening stars Richard Gere and Diane Lane. Gere is Paul, a surgeon who long ago unwittingly traded family for career. Lane is Adrienne, a devoted mother trying to move on after her husband's infidelity and struggling with his desire to return to their marriage. At a remote inn on the Outer Banks, both separately expect to do some serious soul-searching. But an approaching storm forces each to turn to the other for strength, setting the stage for a life-resonating romance.

The Notebook (2004)

The Notebook is a story of lost chances, growing up, and the power of enduring love. Spanning six decades, the romantic story focuses on two teenagers from opposite sides of the tracks (Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams) who fall in love during one summer but are tragically forced apart. When they reunite seven years later, their passionate romance is rekindled, forcing one of them to choose between true love and class order.

A Walk to Remember (2002)

The inspiring coming-of-age story about first love, A Walk to Remember is about two very different North Carolina teenagers: Landon Carter, a troubled, unmotivated but very popular student, and Jamie Sullivan (Mandy Moore), the serious and conservative daughter of a preacher. As love pulls them closer, peer pressure and lifestyles seek to break them apart. Directed by Adam Shankman, A Walk to Remember co-stars Peter Coyote and Daryl Hannah.

Message in a Bottle (1999)

In this tale of love lost and found, grieving widower Garret Blake (Kevin Costner) may know how to build boats, but cannot rebuild his life. Theresa (Robin Wright), a lonely divorcee and researcher for the Chicago Tribune, comes to his North Carolina village to find him, knowing that Garret is the author of the message she found inside a bottle on a Cape Cod beach. And she knows the message spoke to her in a way that profoundly touched her heart. Directed by Luis Mandoki, the film co-stars Paul Newman as Garret’s father.

The Bottom Line

Nicholas Sparks is a household name when it comes to romance, and few authors are as well known by name as the titles of their books - and in this case movies. If you're not a romantic then this collection will definitely turn you into one - The Nicholas Spark Limited Edition Collection has everything from young romance (The NotebookA Walk to Remember) to finding love again late in life (Message in a Bottle), which means that its perfect for your whole family when you're all in a mushy mood. The collection includes some of the lesser known films, like Nights in Rodanthe, as well Safe Haven - the newest and most exciting of the Nicholas Sparks movies. The postcard set offered with the collection is an adorable touch that's great for die-hard fans of these flicks.

Although we heartily advise against watching all of these movies back to back since they might turn you into a total sappy mess, but it's incredible to see all these films offered togethered. What can we say, we love love - who doesn't! A collection worth having at home for those moments you're feeling blue and need a quick heart-shaped pick-me-up!
