"It's like this, old thing: Rosie and I are anticipating a little bundle of joy," related Bingo Little in a stunned manner. "And it sadly appears that I will have to take over as breadwinner for the partnership. Everything about her has changed. She sits down to write a romance, and pfffft! Three or four pages later, she's through! The publishers are clamoring for light novels, but not that light! Not only that, but she's ravenously hungry, so the prospective income is on the decrease while the expenses are on the rise. Our cook has gone south, so my little wife is now wasting valuable writing time in the scullery, making pies."
"If I might make a suggestion, Sir?" injected Jeeves. "Didn't Mrs. Travers mention that Milady's Boudoir wanted some quality short fiction to stir up the circulation?"
"Why, that's exactly the the thing, Jeeves! Aunt Dahlia will gladly invite Rosie, if she knew there were romantic short stories to be had, and the culinary payback is enough to keep any expectant mother full to the gills and happy as a clam."
Thus it came to pass that Mrs. Bingo Little, known to her readers as Rosie M. Banks, spent a fortnight at Brinkley Court, enjoying the divine cooking of Anatole and producing three short stories ("She Gave Her All", "Hearts Entwined" and "Three Little Words") and two novellas ("Sweet Nothings" and "Blushing Bride"). As to the cooking, Anatole's Selle d'Agneau aux laitues a la Grecque inspired a tale set in the Greek Islands, his Nonnettes de la Mediterranee au Fenouil made her dream up a romance set in Monaco, the Timbale de ris de veau Toulousaine gave her a vision of lovers in the South of France, Neige aux Perles des Alpes set Rosie to writing a piece set in a Swiss chalet, and his Steak & Kidney Pie brought her sensibilities back to inspire a London tale.
Rosie's "What to Name Your Baby" book supplied the male romantic leads with the names Algernon, Benjamin, Charles, Donald, and Edgar, the heroines were dubbed Florence, Greta, Helen, Ivy and Janice. Aunt Dahlia was happy to get the three short stories for Milady's Boudoir, where they were well received by a panting readership, and the two novellas were published as a single volume and went right to the best-sellers list.
Can you reconstruct this productive sojourn by matching the titles of the short stories and novellas with their heroes, heroines, and the romantic locale?
