The original title was, Public Lies, but several people thought that didn’t convey the book’s sexy nature, so it changed to America’s Most Wanted. I got my agent with this title, but when she went to sell it, one editor was looking for a Christmas story.
Could this Jewish author write a Christmas story? Well, I could come up with a great title which was, The Most Scandalous Time of the Year.
And then we sold in it’s original iteration (No holly or mistletoe) to Forever Yours who renamed it, “Deep Cover.” A few months later, we changed it to what you see now, which is, In Bed with the Bodyguard. And boy, don’t you want to snuggle up with that cover cutie?
