Sharon Jaynes, bestselling author, Bible teacher, and cofounder of Girlfriends in God, teaches women how to enjoy God's sacred gift of sexual intimacy without guilt or regret by exploring the beautiful picture given in the Song of Solomon.

Everywhere we turn in our sex-saturated culture we are bombarded by destructive and unrealistic depictions of romance and intimacy. The problem, according to Bible teacher Sharon Jaynes, is not that culture focuses on sex too much but that it values sex too little. Sexual intimacy, as God intended it, is so much more than a physical act. Yet, with the extent of the church's message being "don't do it" before marriage and "don't talk about it" after, how are Christians to understand and practice the wondrous gift of intimacy between a husband and a wife when they so rarely hear biblical teaching about it? 

In Lovestruck, Jaynes takes readers back to the Bible's beautiful picture of romantic love, a picture that is explicit but not illicit, sensual but not sordid, daring but not dirty. With the words of Solomon and the Shulamite woman in the Song of Solomon as a backdrop, Jaynes explores topics such as the giving and receiving of pleasure, restoring romance in the mundane, making intimacy a priority, avoiding the dangers of growing indifference, creating time to pull away from life's busyness, and committing to a forever kind of love. When we see the sacred blessings of sexual intimacy in marriage and understand God's original intent, we find the freedom to enjoy and explore one of the Father's most magnificent gifts.
