Which romantic comedy title would make a reader wish to know more? Romance Wars or Chasing Romance?
The story revolves around two people who write romantic advice columns for different newspapers in the same city.
In medieval England, with a bit of luck, her nemeses would have been boiled in oil. Roz found the thought somewhat comforting. As an advice columnist for a local newspaper, was it not one's duty to dispense honest, practical, common sense advice... as opposed to making **** up? Nathan Knight made **** up. Not just any kind of ****, but crazy, mind-boggling ****. That's what got under her skin the most. His sanity should have been called into question. Was it? Never.

"Romance Wars" would be closer to your plot idea. Neither Nathan nor Roz are "Chasing Romance". They are romance advisors, so they think they don't have to chase romance. They think they've got all the answers. They are not chasing romance but dispensing it. If Nathan desired romance with Roz - wooing her, calling her, dating her, mooning over her - and she's not buying his act; then there would be a chase. If Nathan and Roz were after the same guy or girl (This is an L G B and a few other letters world now,) there would be a chase.
BTW, boiling in oil was the execution of choice for poisoners. Not the convicted poisoner's choice of course. So Roz truly believes Nathan's not dishing out the true gen, but poison. [I always wanted to use that phrase after reading a biography of Hemingway.] Why is Nathan's quack-medicine advice getting her upset? If his advice is no-good, his clients will complain to his newspaper and switch to her column in her boss's paper. Bye-bye to the unemployment line, Nate! Rah Rah Right On Roz! I suspect Nathan's advice is not so bogus, or he's oh-so-charming in print, and he's reducing her following.

There are two problems with your first sentence - Nemesis is not spelled 'nemises' and people were not boiled in oil in Medieval England as a judicial punishment.

Romance Wars, because the Star Wars franchise hit a bit idea speed bump, use this precious time to take action!

If the "reader" has access to the same paragraph that you've very foolishly published, above, then the answer is "none". Holy hell. Just title it "Chasing Sh1t" and then delete it.

Neither title works for me even after reading your excerpt.
By the way, you need a very, very good editor.
