Unlucky in extremely straight love? Looking for a little nudge to guide you towards the most heteronormative relationship possible, probably with someone who’s either royalty, a billionaire, or perhaps some manner of ranch hand? Hoping to give up all possible agency in the name of escapist fantasy? Look no further than the Romance Novel Title Generator!
Get ready to become pregnant/property/a domestic servant as you get fall into a relationship with someone who treats you like a child/calls you an Italian nickname/kidnaps you! To figure out just who you belong to and what circumstances will force you to marry him, use this handy chart and the first four letters of your last name — which you will, of course, be changing. Think of this as a last hurrah. (If your last name has fewer than four letters, use as many letters of your first name as you need.) For example, if your last name is (was!) Bennett, choose “B” from the first column, “E” from the second, “N” for the third, and “N” for the fourth, so you end up with The Dangerous Maverick’s Forbidden Wife. Congratulations, and be careful; he sounds like quite the rake!
