Nappily Married ...oh geez. That is awful!

One funny title I read was Tequelia Makes her clothes fall off. It is the title of a country song and then became the title of a Harlequin romance.

Georgia on His Mind by A. Defee


This one isn't too bad, I don't think. Kinda like it.

As often (never daring to say "always" ;-), I agree with you. I remember that song--had no idea Harlequin had a book with the same title--neat!

Some of these titles (imho) were wacky, cheesy, and others were witty or intriguing.

Fun to prowl, though...
