He makes good girls...bad.

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 ten 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.
 *fans self dramatically*
In case you didn't that, I just fell on my bed after obsessive swoonage over Dante. Even his name's sexy...honey, do you see the cover?!?!
He can turn me bad anyyyytime ;D
*takes deep breath and releases hysterical laugh*
*mutters incoherently under breath* give me the book and no one gets hurt
DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND???!There is all this hype over Dante's swooniness and and and......I NEED HIM!!!!!
*stalk off into other room* (Dante's standing there with his  killer smile)
......oh crap....
*falls to floor, unconscious* Dante catches me by the way....hey it is MY fantasy (:
Sorry, Charlie, he's mine!

Dante Walker: a sexy dead dude that has more secrets than sand on the beach. He's a Bad Guy but not really a bad guy. *sigh* Yes, he does indeed love collecting souls that will eventually be doomed to damnation. How do I explain this without giving away all his secrets?
Okay, he knows a thing or two about loss, he has a problem with reality and doesn't let himself get attached to anyone except (isn't there always an exception) his bestest friend in the entire world. Hey demons can have friends too!
He is faced with the task of tagging Charlie's soul, one which is pretty freaking good, and sending it to Hell. But, there's a bit of an issue a hand. Dante seems to be falling for his victim. Charlie is far from perfect. As a matter of fact she's pretty average: pimples, frizzy hair and crooked teeth. Mr. SoulTagger can't figure out what it is about her that he is drawn to.
Charlie is the butt of the popular girl's jokes and lemme tell you, Miss Everything does NOT play nice. But then again, neither of Dante, and he is fiercely protective of Little Miss Sunshine over there (a.k.a Charile)
No one know why Boss Man (the devil) wants with Charlie's soul. Why is she so stinking important? Huh? TELL ME! Oh wait. I know why. HA. Guess you'll just have to read to see why.
Anyway. Can I just say I love Blue? *sobs* I LOVE YOU BLUE :-*
