Heat Level Ratings (HLR) for Black Opal Books Publications are a three digit code. The first digit refers to sexual content. The second digit refers to profanity. And the third digit refers to violence. Heat levels are posted here to help our customers choose books that fit their personal preference regarding sexual content, language, violence, and other adult situations contained in our books. Please note: While some books may straddle the line between categories, we have done our best to accurately rate our books. HOWEVER, HLRs are intended as guidelines only and Black Opal Books does not guarantee any certain type of content or lack thereof in our books.
