Heartwarming romances

Have you heard about the new Harlequin line,  the "Harlequin Heartwarming Collection", which will be coming out soon? Online in March, in fact, and in the stores starting in April.   The books will be a wholesome style of romance, free of offensive language and physical intimacy, with positive family values.  Apparently, the great success of the Love Inspired line has shown that there are many readers out there who are seeking a good, "clean" read.  Irene Hannon,  a Love Inspired author, is in the debut line up, and there will be other Love Inspired authors with books coming out in the line, too.   And not just romance, but romantic suspense as well--I'll have two of those, in August,  and November or December.

It's heartwarming to me to learn that there is such a demand for the wholesome kind of books Love Inspired and Love Inspired Suspense publishes.  What types of stories are your favorites--the kinds of stories that are an "instant sale" to you when you read a back cover blurb?
