    This is non-standard English. It should be: "...as much as she loves you".

    (I think) do can be used to stress the act......she do love= she certainly love

    As bhai said, even if this were correct grammar, it's not colloquial.
    Remember:
    I/you/we/they do
    He/she/it does

    "She does love you" is correct. But it doesn't work in the original sentence.
