If you enjoy tender romance stories that are served up high on sweet, but low on heat, then Harlequin Heartwarming is what you’re looking for. This is wholesome romance at its best. These love stories contain deeply satisfying plotlines minus profanity and explicit sexual content. You can feel safe passing these books along to grandma or your teenaged daughter to enjoy; no worries about sending them off blushing from highly descriptive adult themes or offensive language. I’ve only recently become acquainted with the Harlequin Heartwarming line of books, having discovered their authors’ discussion group by chance on the Goodreads.com website in early 2014, but have found them to be the romance stories that I so often craved; and I’ve been hooked ever since. You won’t find the religious element that is usually present in clean romance novels, but you will find great reads that embrace traditional family values with some mild drama and the occasional mystery, an added bonus. You are sure to be drawn in by the beautifully illustrated covers. Harlequin has done a spectacular job with the eye-catching covers that so nicely convey what’s waiting inside. Regrettably, paperback copies are presently available for purchase only at Harlequin.com, although Barnes & Noble and Amazon do provide them in e-book format, a revelation that has left me exasperated and perplexed. These books need to be on mainstream bookstore shelves for lovers of fine, unadulterated love stories. Meanwhile, to get your Harlequin Hearwarming fix, find them at Harlequin.com, or check out their authors’ awesome blog at http://heartwarmingauthors.blogspot.com, where you’ll find fun and interesting blog posts from a host of talented and creative Heartwarming authors. The blog is updated daily and includes, among other things, Hearwarming author interviews, writing advice and expressions, witty banter, contests and giveaways. Give them a try and the only regret you’ll have is that you didn’t find them sooner.
