Don't trash this book! I've read this trilogy four times!

I need to make a Public Service Announcement, because a lot of you have seen this post. Ron Miller's Bronwyn trilogy (Palaces and Prisons, Silk and Steel, and Hearts and Armor), is an effin' awesome set of books. Ron Miller writes clever plot, rich prose with a good deal of self-mocking tongue-in-cheek, and there are two sex scenes in the middle book that he deliberately writes in an over-the-top, overly purple, substance-altered haze of text. If you take these scenes out of context, they have the potential to sound ridiculous. I'm begging you, if you read these and judged, have the courtesy to consider that they make much more sense in context, when you see what a skilled author he is, and that he's doing this deliberately.
