I have never found anything in the primary sources to suggest that they were in love. I think it just makes good fiction like Elizabeth getting pregnant by Thomas Seymour! It is clear that Edward admired his cousin, for she was a very learned young lady and also of the Protestant faith, but I would have thought that he would have looked to marry a foreign princess for diplomatic reasons and so would not have considered a relationship with Jane.
