All of the Harlequin Presents books have titles like that now.  Very funny to stand in the book aisle and just read the titles.

They're always Presents.  The most hilarious ones out there.  I think they pride themselves on it.

There was a thread and the posters here made up titles for these books.    My personal favorite was The Walmart Greeters Surprise Baby.

I don't know about you, but the mental picture of any of the greeters at our Taos'  Walmart having sex would just about put you off the deed for the rest of your life!

A friend of mine doesn't read romance but knows that I have recently started, and she sent me a link to a cartoon on the Onion (I believe) that made fun of romance novel titles like the Presents ones. She didn't realize books actually had titles like that. I sent her the link to eHarlequin's Presents page and she was laughing for quite some time!

Karla - OMG!  I can't imagine trying to buy that at a book store.  It would be like the first time you had to buy maxi pads or tampons!

I particularly enjoy that the author of The Pleasure Master is Nina Bangs... quite a surname for the author of a book like that ;)

Presents always have those types of funny titles.  when I went grocery shopping a few weeks ago , I always look at the books section before I leave, and there was two teenage girls who where reading the titles and laughing.  And I had to laugh , the way they were having such a great time.( i never did by a book that day)

I was just looking in the B.B. and seen this one
