Snarkling Clean

Snarkling Clean- because you don't have to cuss to make fun of stuff. Two dedicated readers discuss romance novels- from what made us weep with joy to what made us want to poke pencils through our eyeballs.

Romance Language

A word on our romance euphemisms: to keep this site as friendly as possible, (meaning your six-year-old walks up while you’re here and announces she can read that word!) we try to keep the terms for intimacy rather tame. A few examples:

Tea and Crumpets- This actually comes from one of Robyn’s husband’s geeky role-playing games. They had to find a kind way to say what pirates had with the lovely ladies of the towns they pillaged.

One With the Cosmos- the heroine’s Clairol Totally Organic Experience.

Sword of Love- you know what we’re talking about.

Oh My Protuberances- from Catherine Anderson’s Cherish. The heroine’s exclamation upon discovering two small parts of her body that stand at attention when stimulated or cold.

There will probably be others later on. Just use your imagination!

I love how you make the word "protuberances" sound so dirty!
