Release Date: March 2013
Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence have made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple, weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal opportunity collector and doesn’t want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within 10 days.Dante doesn’t know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky, Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect—he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector, and uncover emotions deeply buried.
Are you excited yet? Here are a few other snippets about Dante to excite you even more: Trust us when we say, being bad has never looked so good. You’ll need him, you’ll want him...and we'll let you in on a little secret: He wants you too. Parents, lock up your daughters, ‘cause Dante’s come to play.
Ohhhh. Well, it’s official, I think I am already in love (and the book is not even out yet!). How is it possible for a man to be so alluring from just blurbs? Victoria Scott, what have you done to me?! Sigh. Well, I guess it is time to add another name to my ever-growing list of fictional loves. I seriously cannot wait to read more about this guy (and swoon hardcore). *looks at release date* Alright, I’ll get a nice Dante fix in March 2013… Wait, what? *looks at release date again* 2013?! As if the Dante teasers were not enough, I now have to wait 9 months for the book?? Victoria Scott, you are a cruel, cruel woman (and I mean that in the nicest way possible).

As a little added extra, I think this song fits Dante rather well. On the cover, there is a little caption that says, “He makes good girls go…BAD.” So what song could possibly be better than Cobra Starship’s Good Girls Go Bad?? Enjoy!
