The Arabian Performance Artist’s Anarcho-Syndicalist Nurse
Suleiman, a tanned, muscular Arab in his twenties, is living out his dream of being a performance artist. He performs in towns and cities all over the country, specializing in anything from swallowing swords to trapeze art.
Plus the adulation does much to attract the beautiful young women. Suleiman, a notorious ladykiller, can thus ensure that he always be with a female companion… or two. Having been orphaned at the tender age of two, this young man knows no other way of life.
All this changes when Suleiman is struck with a debilitating disease. This handsome hero must give up the performance work that he so loves. Just like that, the girls stop visiting him.
Weak and lonely, Suleiman contemplates suicide when he meets the beautiful, young, nubile Bettina. The feisty blonde touches his heart like no other. However, she is an anarcho-syndical, part of an elite sect that denounces sword-swallowing and trapeze work.
The fires of passion rage as Suleiman and Bettina both realize that Bettina and only she holds the key to Suleiman’s cure — and his destiny.
I got this title from the Romance Novel Title Generator.
Here we have the formula for a typical eHarlequin or some other chain romance novel. First, there is the tortured hero. He has been orphaned and as a result cannot form emotional bonds to any other person (i.e., his womanizing minus the love). He has many partners and is a playboy. And he is hunky. I guarantee that i this becomes a real novel, his cover model will be waxed all over.
Of course, the partners disappear before or when he meets the One. I insert a dilemma here — he has a debilitating disease. (Fill in the blanks. Everything can be broken except where it counts.) Big problem!
Then he meets the One — who here is the typically feisty heroine. I used the word “nubile” to describe her, as it’s only one word and it gives the feeling that Bettina is shapely, buxom, and lovely to behold. She holds the key to his heart, etc etc. Anyway, Bettina in this case is the cure for Suleiman’s problem. That or the fire of their love. I also inserted a little quirk — she’s an anarcho-syndical. You can’t have a perfect heroine, after all. Just a nearly perfect one.
Have fun writing your own! With the Title Generator and the formula for romance novel success, you can never go wrong!
