Signing off a German letter

Can one sign off a German letter with "in Liebe" ?? Is this the same as "with Love" or "loads of love" in English??? Or is it reserved to more intimate love letters ?

I would use "in Liebe" only in romantic relationship (if at all; to me it sounds too bombastic, like a 19th-century novel).

Germans don't use "Liebe" the way anglophones use "love".

When I write to friends or family, I write something like:

Herzliche Grüße
Liebe Grüße
Ganz liebe Grüße
