Although we see Nan and Dutch do no more than embrace and kiss, it’s apparent that the residents of Ballyhaven consider sex a natural benefit of living, and they often tease Nan and each other with light, slightly naughty humor. Conversations turn to Nan’s single status, and comments about her need of a “good man” are accompanied by sensual innuendo delivered with an affectionate, teasing expression. This type of teasing is not often found in inspirational romance, and the subtle rating is a hint of more sexual-leaning language than a reader might expect in the genre. The plans for escape and the inherent dangers of disregarding the law of the land set the stage for a love story both sweet and deep as Nan tries to move on from her past, and Dutch provides an example of steadfast love on which she can rely. Grounded Hearts is a jewel, inspirational romance at its best. Pick up a copy and be prepared for a wonderful experience.
