Help Meeeeee....

Okay, you title gods and goddesses. I need your help again. The Novel Formerly Known as Counterfeit Nanny needs a new name, and pronto. See, I can't send in my art form without the correct title. Or my back cover blurb. Or pretty much anything else.


So here's the deal. I'll give you a brief rundown of the story. Suggestions will be accepted until Thursday, 9 pm, PDT. (West coast USA.) Or until someone posts something I lurve so much I have to snatch it up right away.


No guarantees I'll pick a winner, since I've got family and friends on the case as well. But if I do, you'll get your name on the acknowledgements page, as well as a free download of the book. Fair enough?


Now, onto the actual storyline:


Brynn Dexter is a bit impulsive. Flying to Europe two weeks after taking a job sight unseen at the Laurivenia Academy is just the latest example. That impulse comes back to bite her, though, when she discovers the Laurivenia Academy doesn't actually exist. And neither does her teaching job.


Alex du Charbonneaux is tired of being the subject of intense media scrutiny. He's even more annoyed with the social climbing women who will do anything to anything to get close to him -- even pretend an interest in his five year old daughter. So if he fudged the details of the job to protect his child--and his privacy--who could blame him?


But nanny to a princess is a far cry from the teaching position Brynn expected. She never expected to fall for her charge's father, either--the crown prince of Laurivenia. Passion burns between the two of them, but he's determined to keep his private life private. So when the paparazzi discover their affair, all bets are off. Can the prince and the nanny find common ground--and learn to trust in love?


****

Okay, there you go. Have at it! Post any and all title suggestions--though if you have more than one, try to post them all together (or in blocks), rather than one per comment. Thanks!

You *could* have the title be the ending of your Blurb:

Trust In Love

That might work. That was the first thing I thought of when I read the blurb.

Other alternatives:

A Royal Mess (if comedic, could be fun)

Rags to Royalty (of course, I don't know her social position at the beginning of the story...)

A Royal Affair

Courting Disaster

Hmm... That's all I got for now. :)
