[community profile] unconventionalcourtship is running again! It is the fest where you take a romance novel summary and kill it with fanfic write your own story from it (actual romance not necessary). It's always a lot of fun. There are banners, those are fun too. (I don't have one to hand right now, but there are lots at the comm. Some of them are even proper ships and things and not ones people made for the lols because of the tempting nature of the template.)

In the meantime, because of that, and because it's being summer, which is always unreasonable, have some summaries from the Unconventional Courtship Random Generator:

439) Birthday Bride by Jessica Hart
The BIG Event
Thirty — the age for marriage
Sexy, glamorous… Servalan tried to think of three good things about being thirty as she sat on the plane on her way to celebrate her birthday. Well, her fellow passenger, Cool-as-a-Cucumber Snow White, certainly wasn't one of them!
But they were stuck with each other whether they liked it or not. Worse, for the next few weeks they had to pretend to be wife and wife! The situation wasn't ideal, but they did have something in common — she was about to turn forty to her thirty — and she wasn't bad-looking, either. And so, perhaps, sexy, glamorous and wed was right for her time of life?
One special occasion—that changes your life, forever!

Silhouette Intrigue
Inhibited agent turns wanton woman!
Special Agent Donna Noble was anxious to leave her desk job and get out in the field, but her all-too-beautiful boss, Bill Potts, denied each request she made. So when the opportunity to catch a cunning serial killer arose, Donna would do anything to prove herself. She’d even strip off her plain Jane persona and pose as a seductive temptress in the hopes of luring out the murderer.
Instead, she unleashed an even more dangerous scenario between her and her boss. Though taking on the elusive killer threatened her life would falling in love with Bill be the greatest risk of all?

558) The Bridegroom's Bargain by Sylvia Andrew
'Till death us do part.' A solemn wedding vow, and one Lady Nyssa of Traken's young bride ardently wishes to bring about sooner rather than later! Only minutes after the wedding, Elizabeth Bennet is brandishing a pistol at her wife, accusing her of ruining her father and killing her sister.
So Nyssa makes one more, wholly unexpected, vow - that she's completely innocent of both crimes and will prove it. If after six months she isn't totally convinced then she'll take the consequences. What she must do now is win Elizabeth's trust - using every means at her disposal.

559) A Wild Justice by Gail Ranstrom
Despite Lady Molly Hooper's determination to remain a spinster — the better to avenge wronged women — her passionate response to Toshiko Sato, elusive Countess of Auberville, swept her into a web of desire beyond her wildest imaginings. Lady Auberville wanted a manageable wife who asked no questions — what she got was an independent woman with secrets...

560) The Butler Did It by Kasey Michaels
the First Doctor, Marquis of Westham, expects his butler to be awaiting his return home — even when that return follows a five-year absence. But he doesn't expect the horde of strangers who've taken up residence in his house, courtesy of that enterprising butler and a discreet classified ad. One's plan to toss his unwelcome tenants into the street is thwarted by a handsome but indomitable debutant, Mr Dave Lister — who's not averse to a bit of blackmail for a good cause.
Now One finds himself squiring the lovely Dave to the ton's most fashionable events — and what's more surprising, he's beginning to enjoy it. Surely he's not falling for such an infuriating man? The butler has a lot to answer for — but then again, it's so hard to find good help...

561) Cursed By Cupid by Wendy Sparrow
With luck, they might survive their first date...
Dear Reader, this letter is to inform you of Cupid’s curse, which will fall upon you if you don’t pass this email on to three friends within three hours.
Sapphire didn’t believe in the curse and now she hasn’t had a second date in three years… because all her first dates end in disaster. In fact, she just accidentally punched a gal in the face, leaving her without a date for Valentine’s Day!
the Tenth Doctor isn’t sure if the curse is real or not, but if dating Sapphire means occasionally getting assaulted with a chocolate shake or nearly electrocuted, it’s worth the risk. Armed with more lucky charms than a bowl of cereal, Ten will have to battle flying swords, Russian mail-order brides, and shrimp linguini if he’s going to win the girl.

Summoned to Rome for her skills as an apothecary, Zelena has already had more than enough of the wickedly decadent papal court. Though protected — for now — by the powerful Borgia family, she knows her very life depends on accomplishing the task she has been set. But perhaps the greatest danger Zelena faces is her own desire for the darkly seductive Bill Potts, better known as the Rogue Assassin. And when she is implicated in a deadly plot, can she trust her lover with her secrets — or her heart?

Mills & Boon Super Historical

A Quest…
the Mistress barely escaped with her life after her father was murdered and her home burned to the ground. She must discover what lies behind these devastating events – even if it places her own life in jeopardy!
A Ninefold Key…
Adric and Missy are fated to meet and to fall passionately in love. But will their search for the ninefold key unlock the deadly secrets of their past – or utterly destroy them both?

(I'm going for option B.)

558) The Bridegroom's Bargain by Sylvia Andrew
'Till death us do part.' A solemn wedding vow, and one Lord the Second Doctor's young groom ardently wishes to bring about sooner rather than later! Only minutes after the wedding, Rumplestiltskin is brandishing a pistol at his husband, accusing him of ruining his mother and killing his sister.
So Two makes one more, wholly unexpected, vow - that he's completely innocent of both crimes and will prove it. If after six months he isn't totally convinced then he'll take the consequences. What he must do now is win Rumplestiltskin's trust - using every means at his disposal.

343) In Room 732: Bridesmaid with Benefits - Amy Andrews
Edmund Blackadder's one rule is: not to sleep with Victor Frankenstein. Yes, he's hot, but falling into bed with him after every wedding must stop! But when Edmund sees a new side to him, he decides that some rules are made to be broken!

340) The Highlander's Redemption - Marguerite Kaye
On her first night in Scotland, Bill Potts is rescued from danger by brooding Highlander Charlotte Pollard… Why Charley agrees to take Bill under her protection, she doesn’t know – the unconquerable demons of her warrior past are burden enough without adding the demands of one bewitchingly brave Frenchwoman! Yet her innocence soothes the jagged edges of her soul, and her beauty fires her blood… She might be her reluctant saviour, but she’ll be her willing seducer…

(Clearly one requiring much use of dodgy accents and/or a terrible malfunction in the TARDIS telepathic circuits.)

153) His Hidden American Beauty- Connie Cox
Making Five smile... Cruise ship doctor the Fifth Doctor travels from port to port with no ties to anyone; relationships cause nothing but heartache. So when Greek goddess the Mistress catches his eye he’s determined to steer clear! Dynamic doc Missy is on board for some R&R. The ‘R' might not stand for Romance, but a summer fling could be the perfect distraction. Five plays it cool on the surface, but Missy will enjoy discovering his hidden depths and awakening the handsome man beneath...
