Bonnet Ripper

n., a romantic novel set in Amish country. The phrase is a play on the term ‘bodice ripper,’ which refers to a typical romance novel. Unlike most romance novels, known for their sexual content, bonnet rippers are entirely chaste–though they may contain as much as a kiss or two.

Credit for coining the term goes to the L.A. Review of Books. via Tim Challies, who has drafted an amazing Ultimate Christian Novel.
