    Default The Love's Tale

    Hello,

    I'm trying to translate the title of my novel's first chapter to English but I can't find the correct translation. I named it originally as "Love Tale". The female character stupidly in love with the male character but he doesn't so much in love with her and he is a cheater. So, it's not a real love story, it's only a "tale". When I call it "Love Story", this name doesn't correspond to my original title. When I call it "A Tale of Love" and searched google for it, I see that it means a more intimate thing. When I call it "The Love's Tale" just like "The Winter's Tale" and searched it, there is no result. So, I would like to ask you about it. Can I call it "The Love's Tale"? Is it a correct using and can be a natural title in English?

    No, it's not natural I'm afraid.
