Do romance and religion mix?

Years ago one of my brothers shared a book with me, and said he loved this author because while there was a lot of suspense, and heat bordering on erotism, the physical part of the romance was always between two married people.

One of the most interesting boundaries to sort out as an author is that of how hot, or physical the romance should be and how you build the heat and urgency of a developing relationship without crossing the line that would offend your own sensibilities or those of your friends and family who honor values of sex within marriage. 

I am currious - maybe some of you have posted about this in the past; if so reply with a link or paste your comments here.

  1. Do you read Julie Lessman's books? Her "Daughters of Boston" and "Winds of Change" series are geat examples of romance mixed with religion. Her catch phrase is "Passion with a Purpose." Check her out! I think you'll enjoy the story and the romance!
