The Chopper Pilot's Secretive Mistress (and other minty-fresh titles)

Ever wonder why Harlequin titles are riddled with cowboys and billionaires and billionaire Greek cowboy daddies?
Evolutionary psychologists explain why in this article — it’s all about Darwinian mating instincts. “…they portray the embodiment of female desires, evolved over centuries.” That’s the verdict after a study of 15,000 Harlequin romance novels.
You mean it took 15,000 freakin’ novels to figure this out??? “…mating instincts, developed over thousands of years, mean that women want a wealthy, fit, fertile, committed man.”
Big DUH.
So…Here’s the challenge. Harlequinize your favorite novels! Maybe their sales will surge!
The Sheikh's Impatient Virgin (Harlequin Presents)
I’ll start:
The One-Legged Texas Ranger’s Kickass Woman (Lonesome Dove)
The Half-Assed Country Doctor’s Wayward Wife (Madame Bovary)
The Rich Gentleman and the Humble-yet-Wise Lass (Pride and Prejudice)
Your turn! Post your own title makeovers!

  1. I guess no one is taking you up on the challenge. Let me think on this one. The impatient virgin…okaay.

    How about one of yours – The You I Never Knew.

    Sexy Rodeo Rider’s Secret Love Child. Nah… I am going to go put on the thinking cap.

    Anyone else??

  3. I know Sam is an ex-rodeo star, I could not for the life of me remember how to spell “veterinarian” and The Vets Secret Love Child didn’t sound sexy enough. Back to thinking.

    Sam is a very sexy man in the book! One of my faves.
