"The characters should all be familiar: the heir to the British throne, his mischievous younger brother, his granny and the pretty commoner he meets in college. But in this version... the girl is American. Nick and Bex's love story is so fun and dishy, you'll hope for a sequel--with royal babies."―PEOPLE

American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy tales. Her twin sister, Lacey, has always been the romantic who fantasized about glamour and royalty, fame and fortune. Yet it's Bex who seeks adventure at Oxford and finds herself living down the hall from Prince Nicholas, Great Britain's future king. And when Bex can't resist falling for Nick, the person behind the prince, it propels her into a world she did not expect to inhabit, under a spotlight she is not prepared to face.
 

The reason a comma is put in between the book titles is because, while they are in quotation marks, they are still part of a list. When listing things, you put a comma in between each item. For example, if you were to say “He likes bananas, oranges, and carrots”, you would have to put commas between each item that “He” is said to like. How these commas are placed is a matter of debate for some people, since many are starting to avoid using the Oxford comma. If you do not use the Oxford comma, the sentence would read “He likes bananas, oranges and carrots.”

Fiction:To Kill a Mockingbird > Boo Bristles
Fiction: Let the Great World Spin > Dangling on the Edge
Non-Fiction: To Show and To Tell > Breaking Writing Rules
Non-Fiction: Sex and the Seasoned Woman > 101 Ways to Spice Up the Geriatric Bedroom
That was fun…my writing has been of a personal nature of late, and I am not stunned by my titles, last 2 were “Celebrating Small Victories” and “What I Want Versus What I Do.” Any suggestions, based on nothing but the titles.
Portent suggested these: The Hunger Games Guide to Celebrating Small Victories, and
15 Freaky Reasons Why What I Want Versus What I Do Got Me Fired and Divorced [ my version of Portents suggestion]
I will give more thought to titles from here on out. I often just slap something on.
