Speaking of "bodice-rippers," there's actually a very funny scene in one of the Outlander books...our feisty heroine is now a doctor and is waiting on a patient to get out of surgery. To pass the time, she picks up a rather tattered paperback in the doctor's lounge and starts reading it. She bursts out laughing at one of the "love" scenes, and that's how she meets one of her best friends...he's also a doctor, waiting on a patient to get out of surgery, and he guesses which part made her laugh, because she wasn't far enough into the book to read the other "infamous" part.
