Fans are going crazy over the main character Elizabeth’s indecisiveness regarding her current love triangle between the mysterious Lucas Bouchard and the trustworthy Mountie Nathan Grant. If you have been watching the show this season, then you have likely chosen which team you are on: Team Lucas vs. Team Nathan. While there is much debate among “Hearties” as to which potential love interest Elizabeth belongs with, decide for yourself by reading the five reasons Elizabeth should be with each gentleman caller. Don’t forget to catch up by watching the entire series!
1. Similar Background
Both Lucas and Elizabeth were raised in affluent lifestyles in the city. Elizabeth was born into a well-to-do family that frequently attended plays at the theatre and put on exquisite dinner parties. Lucas also comes from this type of family.
2. Love for Literature
Lucas enjoys reading just like Elizabeth. His mother was even a book editor, and he can provide her much knowledge about how to proceed with her writing endeavors. They truly seem to connect on this topic.

Lucas waltzed into Hope Valley with many secrets. While many of his secrets have been revealed, it still seems things are being hidden from the town. However, this air of mystery surrounding Lucas only makes him more interesting.
4. Not a Mountie
Unlike Elizabeth’s former love, Jack, Lucas is not a Mountie. This fact is actually quite a refreshing change. As many hearties have noted, this would keep away from a repeat storyline for Elizabeth’s love life.
As a constant source of encouragement of Elizabeth’s writing, Lucas truly cares about her aspirations to become a published author. In a huge move to show his affection, he even purchased a building for Elizabeth to open her beloved library.
1. Mountie Like Jack
Just like Jack, Elizabeth’s deceased husband, Nathan is also a member of the Canadian Mounted Police. Elizabeth is familiar with this line of work, and they share an automatic connection because of this.
2. Caregiver For Allie
Nathan has been charged with raising his young niece, Allie, who just happens to be a student at Hope Valley’s school where Elizabeth is the teacher. They both want what is best for Allie and work together to ensure this.
3. Good With Kids
Because Nathan is raising his niece on his own, he understands what it is like to be a lone caregiver for a child just like Elizabeth is for little Jack. Throughout the past two seasons, Nathan seems very comfortable playing with little Jack.

4. What You See Is What You Get
Unlike Lucas, Nathan is not mysterious. He is straightforward in who he is and what he stands for. No one questions his background and his intentions.
At the end of season 6, Nathan came to the rescue of Elizabeth when danger arose at the saloon. He is willing to drop everything to help out the town of Hope Valley which appears to be something Elizabeth really admires.
