    Oh, my, or as my daughter would say, "Ew!." I don't think I've ever come across writing quite so contrived. "Plenipotentiary instrument!" I get the reference, but I doubt be diplomatic the investiture. LOL I can see why you skip the "sappy" bits in those novels. "Tumescent" and "turgid" have always been somewhat clinical terms when I've used them. Oh, well. At least they don't appear (by your/HuffPo's list) to have co-opted otherwise standard phrases like "gild the lily." LOL

    Hokey romance novels prey upon the worst of female rape fantasies.
