Our public library is holding a big book sale today and i was browsing the inventory and they had a whole table filled with Avalon romance books. Does anyone know anything about these? Is Avalon just a publishing company or is it a line of specific types of romances. I'm thinking they might be Christian romance but nothing in the book blurb on the inside cover mentions it being a Christian romance.......anyone know??They were all hardbacks too.

I've never read them, but I saw some recently myself and checked the Avalon books web site. From what I read there, (  http://www.avalonbooks.com/faq.html ) even though they aren't specifically identified as Christian fiction they certainly sound like it.

From the FAQs for would-be authors:
Q. WHAT IS TOO SEXY FOR AVALON?
A. Sexual tension is fine but not more than a kiss or embrace is allowed.

Q. WHAT ARE THE RULES ON ROUGH LANGUAGE?
A. No cursing throughout all of our books. Nothing heavier than a “hell,” “damn” in Westerns and Mysteries. We don’t like cursing at all in our romances. We do not accept racial epithets, no harsh language, and no sexy talk.
 
Q. WHAT ARE THE RULES ON LIQUOR?
A. In our Romances keep it minimal, if any. In our Westerns and Mysteries it is okay within reason.
