Must a Book Have a Happy Ending?

I just read a fantastic book.  I won't give the title, because I plan on giving away the ending.  The main character was female and she was both feminine and tough.  I love that!  And there was a little romance.  I love that too.  Except, the author killed off the hero (aka romantic interest).  He was a good hero too.  He respected the heroine, was talented in his own right, and attractive of course.  He died saving another person, which of course is a good thing.  But I felt disappointed.  I finished the last few pages of the book, but have no desire to ever read it again and I don't know if I would recommend it. 
I NEED a happy ending.  Isn't that why we read fiction?  Fiction doesn't have to be accurate, just enjoyable.  At least that is how I feel today.
