When Sailor Met Dante... (because it's all about the #MeetCute)





The #MeetCute Books each have a unique answer to that query. Some might make you swoon, others might make you giggle . . . and some may make you blush.

Twelve authors. Twelve stand-alone contemporary romance novels. Twelve stories that will make your heart beat a little faster.

Because it’s all about the #MeetCute.

For each #MeetCute Book, we’ll share a couples interview in the style of the “When Harry Met Sally” clips. (Check them out here!)

In EverAfter Sailor is ready for adventure . . . but is she ready for Dante?

Sailor: The first time we met? Oh, right. He tried to kill me.
Dante: Sure. Of course that would be the way you tell it. Funny, the way I remember it, the first time we met, you were stealing from me! And I busted you.
Sailor: And then, you tried to kill me.
Dante: (shakes his head, exasperation mounting - Sailor does this to him) I did not try to kill you. If anything, I saved your life. 
Sailor: (rolls her eyes, smirking...mostly to make him crazier) Well, it was the least you could do, all things considered. 
Dante: All things considered? 
Sailor: Well, yeah. I mean, first you find a starving, lost young woman in your vineyard, but do you calmly introduce yourself and offer to help? No, you come roaring out of the thicket like a yeti, scaring me half to death and making me choke on one of your very sour, very non-tasty by the way, grapes. Do you know the day I was having? Near death by grape wasn't even the worst, or most surprising part.
Dante: (grins, tilting sideways to get a better look at her) Oh yeah? What was the most surprising part.
Sailor: (shrugs) You know.
Dante: Yeah...but they don't. Why don't you tell them?
Sailor: (sighs dramatically) Fine. The most surprising part...was you. Scary, killer yeti and all. Turned out not to be so scary at all. 
Dante: No?
Sailor: No. Quite the opposite actually.
Both smile at each other in that sappy, dopey way only two people in love can. 
Silence.
Sailor: Wait. What about me? Don't you want to say something nice about me?
Dante: Say something nice about the trespassing grape thief who did nothing but make me crazy from the moment we met?
Sailor: (Sits up straighter, crossing her arms) Yeah. 
Dante: (grins, momentarily amused by her, then turns serious)

...

She's the one who saved me


EverAfter releases on September 27th but you can preorder it here for only 99 cents!




Sailor is lost. 

She's spent her whole life in the same town, going all the same places, with all the same people. She's dated one boy. One boy who grew into a man. And now, he wants to marry her.

Suddenly, Sailor can't help seeing, how easy it is to go astray...without ever going anywhere.

Therefore, the only way to find herself...is to leave.

Dante is mostly pissed. Most of the time.

And that feeling only increases when he stumbles onto a woman, stealing grapes right from the vine. His vine. On his vineyard.

Doesn't matter that she's lost. Or that she's beautiful. To make matters worse, she continues to stick around, despite his efforts to be properly pissed...with her.

And thus, their story begins.

Because that's the thing with happy ever afters...they all start with an unlikely once upon a time.
