I mentioned the other day that I’ve written a short (as in 12K) story that has Sam proposing to Rosie (they’re the couple in Personal Protection). After his original plans are thwarted, Sam’s determined to get down on one knee and propose. He’s got the whole night planned–they’ll spend Thanksgiving Day with Rosie’s parents, then he’ll bring her back to their swanky New York hotel where he’s arranged for champagne, candlelight, hundreds of roses, complete with a chocolate fountain with fresh strawberries and pineapple to make the perfect atmosphere for his proposal. He’s even created a very special playlist of their favorite romantic songs. But things go awry before he can get her back to the hotel and he’s forced to improvise.
But I’ve run into a problem — the story doesn’t have a title! I like to work the title into the text wherever I can and it’s stopping me from writing those final few paragraphs to tie everything together. Not to mention that I can’t get the cover art done without a title. I would like it to be alliterative to match the rest of the series, but the other freebie, First Night, isn’t alliterative, so I can break with tradition.
Help me out, here are some suggested titles, tell me which one you think works best:
