The Bachelor and the Butterfly

Author(s): J D Farfallina

Location(s): Tuscany

Genre(s): Romance

Era(s): Present day

A delicately crafted and charming romance about two friends who find love in Tuscany and beyond.

Michael is tired of playing the field and wants to find the right girl, someone he knows the instant he meets her that she is right for him. And indeed one night out he meets the beautiful Stephanie. Yet despite sharing an instant connection, her imminent departure for university stalls the fledgling romance after having ignited a burning longing in the young man’s heart. Forlorn, he follows his close friend David to Tuscany, Italy, where despite opportunities presenting themselves, he sticks to his goal of finding a love for life. When his friend falls for the gorgeous Angelica, Michael resigns himself to a life of solitude. Yet will he, having followed his head and heart, eventually meet the girl of his dreams, whose beauty could launch you to the moon?

The Bachelor and the Butterfly is a beautiful romance you will not want to put down.
