Women Warriors at the River of Blood

A Klingon romance novel

A romance novel was a type of novel that focused on the romantic relationship between two or more characters.

In 2373, upon reading a passage from Women Warriors at the River of Blood, Tom Paris asked B'Elanna Torres if it was a Klingon romance novel. (VOY: "Real Life")

Later that year, when Torres suggested that the holonovel Insurrection Alpha could use "a little heart, a little emotion", Tuvok reminded her that he and Paris were not writing a romance novel. (VOY: "Worst Case Scenario")

Also that year, Quark caught Odo reading a romance novel and read a portion of it aloud...

"He walked toward her, the wooden deck heaving to and fro beneath his booted feet. Her hands moved to the brooch at her throat. She unclasped it and the cloak fell from her shoulders, her wet skin glistening in the moonlight. Lightning flashed and heaven's thunder roared in rhythm with the beating of their hearts."

... until Odo told him to stop. He explained that reading such works of literature helped him with his work as security chief, given that many homicides were motivated by romantic obsession. (DS9: "The Ascent")
