Working Title: Mills And Boon Prose: From YKTTW

Prfnoff: Launched without discussion. The description is poor, and the examples lack detail. Needs work.

Silent Hunter: Can someone help please? I'm not too familiar with the style.

Maso Tey: I'll do what I can; the description is a bit vague, and I'm not sure if it's supposed refer specifically to bad erotic writing, or more generally to the kind of Purple Prose associated with romances.

Silent Hunter: The latter. Good work, thanks.

Floria: does any kind of rather dense and metaphor-laden erotic prose qualify, or just the bosom-heaving "velvet-sheathed steel that proclaimed him male" stuff?

Maso Tey: I'd go with the broader interpretation, personally.
