Today I have the pleasure of sharing an excerpt fromDante’s Girl by Courtney Cole

There’s a giveaway offer at the end of the post as well…

The synopsis:

I have spent every summer since I was ten years old with my father in London. Every summer, since I was ten years old, has been uneventful and boring.
Until this year.

And this year, after a freak volcanic eruption strands me far from home, I have learned these things:

1. I can make do with one outfit for three days before I buy new clothes.
2. If I hear the phrase, “You’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto,” even one more time, I might become a homicidal maniac.
3. I am horribly and embarrassingly allergic to jellyfish.
4. I am in love with Dante Giliberti, who just happens to be the beautiful, sophisticated son of the Prime Minister of a Mediterranean…

I love Christian Grey, and I have from the moment I met read him last year. He’s one of my top fantasy boyfriends and always will be…

  Ever since an accident turned her into a knockout vamp, Elvi Black’s been catching her z’s in a coffin, staying out of the sun, and giving up garlic. She knows there’s more to being undead than what she saw in Dracula, but she can’t very well ask her mortal friends about proper biting etiquette.

I like to have a concrete image of my fictional men so that when I fantasize daydream read about them I have the proper visual in my head. I have to give credit where it’s due in this case. I was reading a review on Goodreads and Kara had thoughtfully provided the perfect image. I saw it, and BAM! THAT was my Kellan too. There was no name to go along with the gorgeous face, so I left her…
