It’s L.O.S.T. Book Two Title Contest Time!

I need help titling  Nikko and Selena ‘s story.  Here’s the deal: you suggest one or one hundred, I run my faves by my editor, and if we agree on one, the person who suggested the title not only gets a signed book, but gets a character named after them in the book!  The only caveat is, I can’t guarantee your character will live.  Sorry. 

I’d love something with SOUL or LOST in the title, but I’m not married to the idea.  I want somethig powerful and kickass!

Here’s the book blurb:

While tracking uranium-spinning centrifuges in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan, L.O.S.T. operative Nikko Cruz is ambushed and left for dead.  The last person he expects to see is Selena Gurerro, the only woman he ever loved and the same woman he was sentenced to death for killing. 

Selena has secrets she’s killed to protect.  Deep, dark, otherworld secrets.  A mother driven mad.  A power-hungry father.  A lineage that makes her half-daemon, a fact she despises.  Selena’s most important secret, however, is one she’s already died to keep.  To protect her daughter, she’ll slay daemons, steal ancient artifacts, and drink immortal blood.  But when she sees her lost love dying on the side of a mountain road, Selena discovers she can’t walk away.  Selena saves Nikko by injecting him with the last of her immortal blood serum, even though doing so pits her against her dangerous employer, a vampire crime lord.

When Nikko comes to, he is super human and super pissed.  Soon, he realizes Selena wasn’t a hallucination.  For some reason, Selena, the mother of his daughter, and the one who killed their child—the woman he’d thought he’d killed years earlier—was not only alive, but had just saved his life.  Why?  He wants answers.  He wants blood.  And despite his best intentions, he wants Selena.   

When the spun uranium surfaces and is offered to the highest bidder, L.O.S.T. gets back into the mix and Nikko tracks the deadly material to a mysterious organization.  From what he can glean, it’s a terrorist cell and Selena Gurrero is its most valued asset.  Now, Nikko’s job is to regain Selena’s trust, infiltrate the group she works for, and get the U-238 to U.S. soil where it can be safely stored.

 Then he’ll finish the job he failed to complete the first time.  He’ll avenge his daughter and rid the world of a beautiful, deceptive evil, one capable of making Nikko burn with desire even as he curses her power over him.

But nothing is as it seems and nothing goes to plan…and soon Nikko and Selena aren’t just burning with desire, but blowing the roof off their separate worlds, human and daemon alike…

Thank you all in advance.  Now, hayelp!!!!!!!!!

  1. Karin, don’t have a title for you, girl, but damn, that’s a great blurb — sounds loaded with conflict and passion what a mix So… Soul or Lost…. hmmm… Do you want it to tie in with Enemy Lover….. Those two words aren’t doing it for me… Using your words against you I’m liking Evil’s Deception…. I’m sure the others will have you rockin’ and a rollin! Great job!

  2. Hey, Karin!

    Aren’t titles the worst?! They seem to be harder to come up with than the book itself. So…procrastination queen that I am, I’ve taken a couple of shots (but will sleep on it to see if I can come up with more).

    Captive Soul
    Vengeful Soul
    Enemy Betrayed
    Enemy Unleashed
    Lost Vengeance
    Vengenace Unleashed
    Unleashed Souls
    Burning Souls
    Soul Betrayed

    Sensing a theme? Yeah–not great, but might get the juices flowing . Shall think on it some more. 🙂

  3. Soul Deception
    Love Deceived
    LOST: Operation Betrayal
    LOST: Operation Deception

    I need sleep. I’ll try again on Saturday.

  4. deceptive souls
    his soul to take
    loves deception

    My title suggestions are:

    SOUL LOVER
    SOUL TEMPTATION
    SOUL SACRIFICE
    SOUL DESIRE
    LOST DESIRE
    ENEMY RESURRECTED
    ENEMY LOST

  7. Well Karin if you want ENEMY in the title how about one of these?

    ENEMY BLOOD

    ENEMY: Soul Blood

    ENEMY: Blood Betrayal

    Enemies of Desire
    Soul Of Desire
    Desired Enemy
    Enemy Desired

    LOST: Souls Betrayed

    Eh, hope these help a little.

  13. How about……Lost Soul: A Powerful And Kickass Story? ….just kidding. Since you like Enemy in the title how about Enemy Mine.

  14. Story titles are always so hard to come up with if you don’t know where the story is headed… but it seems like you do! I love this storyline! I’m still reading this first book. Very interesting! =) Here are my ideas:

    (May not be exactly what you want, or looking for with the word ENEMY but I’ll do my best)

    BURN
    DEADLY DESIRES
    FALLING FOR THE ENEMY
    BLOODY INTENTIONS
    HOLD ME DOWN
    TOUCH AND BURN
    MY BEAUTIFUL ENEMY
    REVENGE NEVER DIES
    KISS OF THE ENEMY
    TASTE OF THE ENEMY
    DARK HUNGER
    JUST A TASTE…
