She has several books with memorable probably unintentionally ridiculous moments. Her first book in her Dark-Hunters universe had a guy with a magically unending boner. And one of her historical romances had a scene where the hero faked his wedding night with the heroine by slashing his arm and having the blood drip onto his sheets. The servants were understandably concerned for the heroine when they saw the results.

OH YEAH. So she's the several CENTURY old virgin. Apparently she has a magical hymen as well b/c it's still around regardless of the fact that athletic activity often does the hymen in (plus she's basically a dryad, so shape why even have one), and am I seriously supposed to believe she's a sexual creature who's never even experimented with masturbation in multiple hundred years of her life?

Oh, not all paranormal romance is like that. Admittedly, much of it has more insta-lust and odder sex scenes than I want.

The only difference between the bad/purple romance in PNR and some of the regular romance books I grew up with is that instead of just have-to-because-captured-or-physically-overpowered sexcapades with odd notions of virginity and orgasms it now adds have-to-because-fated-mate or have-to-for-supernatural-reasons-else-is-still-a-good-girl with some of the sex having to be super over the top ...

Okay, I'm now convinced there's a 'How To' guide for writing the purplest sex scenes imaginable circulating on the Internet because I ran across some hilariously similar phrases while reading the only m/m romance author I've tried. She doesn't write paranormal books but is considered one of the best in the m/m genre. In all fairness she writes better sex as well, but if you need a laugh and are ok with explicit gay sex, here's a link to a GR review that roasts one of her more purple love scenes:
