It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything long-distance-dating related! I certainly don’t intend to stop now that Christian and I are engaged. Actually, I think the pressure’s on. I have to keep coming up with this stuff the rest of my life now.
Inspiration for this latest idea struck when I went book shopping with my sorority sisters. We collectively have a morbid fascination with absurd romance novel titles, so we skipped down to the romance section. There, I stumbled upon the cringe-worthy cover of A Wedding in Springtime.
And it hit me.
What man would not hate this?
Read the back cover if you’re not convinced by the front cover:
Her Timing Couldn’t Be Worse…
Miss Eugenia Talbot’s presentation to the queen is spoiled by a serious faux pas—the despicable William Grant made her laugh, right in front of Her Majesty. Now Eugenia is ruined and had better marry—someone, anyone—at once…
And His Couldn’t Be Better…
Roguish William Grant has never taken anything seriously in his life. Until he meets Eugenia Talbot, who makes him feel and do thing he never thought he would.
Now Eugenia’s great sense of humor and kindheartedness may be her undoing, unless William can help her find a husband. To his surprise, that’s the last thing he wants to do…
I blazonly plopped it on the sales counter, daring the cashier to judge me (he so did).
Later, I devoted countless hours highlighting letters on each page. The letters, once strung in order, reveal a secret message. Alas, Christian will have to turn through the entire book to collect the letters. Quel dommage.
Did I mention the message is in a foreign language?
Let’s hope it takes him a while to guess.
