I need to change the title of this book because as I was writing it this past week, it turned out Lexie didn’t want to wait until her wedding day to run off with Mark. She decided to do it sooner. I looked up the definition of “runaway bride”, and it means a bride-to-be who runs off right before the wedding ceremony. So technically, the title doesn’t fit this book. Bummer. I loved the title, too.
I could try to force Lexie to wait, but honestly, she’s not that stupid. She knows Nick isn’t good for her, and she sees no reason to drag things out. 😛 So that angle wouldn’t work. Plus, it’d only frustrate the characters. Frustrated characters aren’t fun to work with.
Anyone got any ideas on a good title for this book? Basically, Lexie is engaged to Nick but Mark comes along and turns her world upside down. So she has to choose between the two guys. We all know she chooses Mark. The plot is mainly how he wins her over and dealing with the controlling mother (we all remember how the mom was in Suddenly a Bride) afterwards.
So far, the only title I can think of is Claiming His Bride. Does that work?
