Help name the 3rd Blud e-novella!

Help me, blogosphere. You're my only hope!

Blud novella #3 needs a title.

Photo of The White Stripes by Annie Liebovitz.

It's set in Criminy's Clockwork Caravan.

He's a bad boy knife thrower with a dark secret. 

She's a hard-nosed lady journalist in a leather pith helmet who'll stop at nothing for her story.

The first two e-novellas are 

So we're looking for alliteration. We're partial to the letter D.


Do you like that, or is it too obviously euphemistic?

Because, you know, WICKED AS THEY COME isn't coy at all. :)


If anyone can come up with something better, you'll make the Acknowledgments of WICKED AFTER MIDNIGHT, also known as Blud book 3.

Please weigh in in the comments!

The dagger dalliance. Or Dark dagger dalliance.

Why not just Daggers of Desire

Desires for dangerous daggers
Dark desires for daggers
Dark desires for dangerous daggers. Not very good.

Anything with "Daggers" in it brings to mind (for me) the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Hmmm. Here's a couple based on the female lead's role, rather than the male lead's (just for a change of pace):

* Delving into Darkness
* The Diehard Detective
* Digging Deep into the Dark

And if you find you the letter "D" isn't necessarily important:

* An Intriguing Inquisitor

* Incendiary Inquisition (though that reminds me of the Spanish Inquisition in a number of ways, so maybe not)

* An Incendiary Inquiry (apparently, I'm partial to "I")

* Curious Columnist of the Clockwork Carnival

* A Suspicion of Scandal

Also, if you want to use the female lead's name, like in the previous titles:

* Miss Harville's Harrowing Hunt (or The Harrowing Hunt of Miss Harvel)

* The Hard Hunting of Miss Harville (now we're getting into porn titles)

What is the main character's name? Since the other two have the names in the title I think the 3rd should too

The Edge Of Desire
(a bit soap opera and miiiiight have been done before)

The Gleaming Gams Of Ginger Harville
(who da fuck besides me even uses the word gams anymore? Me and Sam Spade. Curse you alliteration!)

Corsets And Knives And Steamy-punk Love
(might be a bit on the nose)

Screw You Marco Taresque
(go with that. if not as a title then Ginger, that little spitfire, should say it in the book)

And there you go, absolutely no help whatsoever. :)
