Romance Title Quiz #2; Cowboys in Kilts

By popular demand (okay, really just because I love them), more romance titles!  Which have I made up?  Could I possibly make up some of this stuff?  Three real ones, one fake, who's the winner?  I did an Amazon search on the fake ones just to make sure they didn't really exist; there are a lot of romances out there!

1) What kind of wedding is this, anyway?
   A. One Hot Cowboy Wedding
   B. Three Brides, No Groom
   C. The Misbegotten Bridegroom
   D. The Bridegroom Wore Plaid

2) Customize your selections!
   A. Some Like It Steamy
   B. Some Like It Wicked
   C. Some Like It Kilted
   D. Some Like It Scandalous

3) Holidays and horses.
   A. The Cowboy and the New Year's Baby
   B. A Cowboy Under My Christmas Tree
   C. Darn Good Cowboy Christmas
   D. For Auld Lang Cowboys

4) Lusty Ladies.
   A. The Duchess of Love
   B. Courting the Countess
   C. Countess in Cowboy Boots
   D. Desperate Duchesses

5) Instruction manuals.
   A. How To Ruin Your Boyfriend's Reputation
   B. How To Marry a Marquis
   C. How To Catch a Highland Heart
   D. How To Tame a Willful Wife

You'll notice that my fake titles are almost always the least interesting of them, though I think I came up with one or two good distractors this time around.  Oh, and check out the previous edition of the quiz. Enjoy!

Have you seen this random title generator? It's awesome.

Oo! I love it! Is the scheme that each question has three real titles and one fake? So I guess:

1. One Hot Cowboy Wedding
2. Some Like It Kilted
3. Hm. Tricky. Darn Good Cowboy Christmas?
4. The Duchess of Love
5. How to Tame a Willful Wife (I hope! I hope this one is fake!)

Brenda--that is awesome! I love it! They don't seem to be using "The Somebody's Wife" or "The Somebody's Daughter" construction, though, which will get you a long way in titling your imaginary books.

Jenny--what I love, love, love about this quiz is that your guesses are absolutely great, but all wrong. The ones I made up are usually the ones that sound MOST like a reasonable book title--I am not nearly as creative as the real writers. Except one. One of my made up ones is more ridiculous than the real ones.
