A box of chocolates, a bunch of flowers--lovely but gone in an instant. Here, in a book that can be treasured forever, are fifty priceless bouquets of romance for the person you love. From Antony and Cleopatra to Hepburn and Tracy, from the Taj Mahal to the Rainbow Room, "The 50 Most Romantic Things Ever Done gathers the most extraordinary stories of what historical figures, celebrities, and just plain folks have done for love.
Among the unforgettable tales: the woman who looked into the eyes of a handsome stranger on a plane and knew at once he was the man she would marry--and how they eventually connected; Carole Lombard's special Valentine's Day gift to Clark Gable; the couple who ran off to live together on a tropical island of their own in the South Pacific; the real story that inspired the classic rock hit "Layla"; and forty-six other true stories that will capture your heart.
