Goofy Title Contest

In keeping with yesterday's hunt for a new title to give Manhunter, I thought we'd have a little fun today and come up with some goofy titles. (Besides, I'm feeling generous.)

Feel free to add as many as you like in the comments. The best one will win a prize (also to be drawn Friday) and if I can't decide which one I like best, I'll do the good ol' hat thing.

Here's a few to get you started...

I Burned For You, So You'll Burn For Me
Flamin' Hot Mama
Hunka Hunka Burnin' Love
Trophy Wife Seeks Fireman
The Pyrophobic's Cookbook

Come on guys, you can do better than that. If I think of anything else, I'll add it to the list along with any of your suggestions.

Now, as for prizes... Still stumped, but I have some idea of things you might like. The winners can each chose one from the following for either contest:

Allison Brennan: The Kill, Killing Fear, Tempting Evil
Allison Brennan, Karin Tabke and Roxanne St. Claire: What You Can't See
Karin Tabke: Master of Surrender
Lynn Viehl: Evermore, Twilight Fall
Edward Willett: Marseguro (hardcover)
Isaac Asimov: I, Robot

Or you could just say 'grab bag' and get three old paperbacks of my choosing.

I'll add to the list if I find any more good books laying around. (BTW, I've read all of the above in the past two years, so if you're not sure what they are check out my lists of books read over on the right. Those posts have links.)

Oh, and you can enter both contests. If the same person wins both, they're lucky as hell and they get two prizes.
