Title Help

Accidental Attraction has been the working title for one of my westerns that I adore the characters and love the premise. It is a rollicking, romantic romp through the gold claims in the Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon. My problem - Accidental Attraction doesn't sound western or historical for that matter. I'm taking any and all suggestions on a new title.

The blurb for the book is:

Darcy Duncan is an accident looking to happen. So it is no surprise to her when she shoots a bank robber while buying mining supplies. She wonders at the town asking her to be marshal. However, being a resourceful, resilient young woman, she takes the job with every intention of giving it an honest try. But falling for the handsome enemy, is one accident too many.

Gil Halsey is asked to bring his boss’ errant son back to the ranch. He follows the man and his band of bumbling robbers to a small mining town. A corrupt local official runs the town and has pinned a marshal’s badge on an accident-prone young woman. Gil believes the two are working together, until the marshal blunders into a bank robbery and is kidnapped. While saving the marshal, he reunites with his estranged family and stumbles into love.

SUGGESTIONS?

Um...I suck at titles, otherwise I'd help. Sorry!

I think that Accidental Attraction is a good title.

Or how about:

Dangerous Duncan

Marshall Duncan's Accidental Attraction

Accidental Marshall

These are all lame, but it's the best I could come up with. I hate titles! I never title my stuff. I just call it by the hero/heroines name and figure it will come to me eventually. LOL Good luck...
