Entice Street Team! Meet Phoenix from Embrace Series by Jessica Shirvington!

Why hello there, lovelies! Glad you're stopping by on this beautiful Wednesday, as we have something special planned for you today! A fabulous Entice Team post featuring no one but the most handsome, sexy, swoon-worthy, badass, dangerously charming (and did I mention SEXY?!) character you'll ever come across in literature! 

Thanks to the fabulous people over at Sourcebooks Fire, readers in the US and Canada can now enjoy the gorgeous Embrace Series by Jessica Shirvington (before it was only available in Australia!). And that certainly calls for a party!

For 8 days -- leading up to the mega awesome ENTICE ME day on September 18th -- SourcebooksFire will be giving away copies of Entice on Twitter, so be sure to follow #EnticeMe hashtag, as well as check out tweets by @EmbraceSeries and @SourcebooksFire

To learn more about the ENTICE DAY, as well as to sign up for an awesome online CHAT with Jessica Shirvington, visit Sourcebooks Fire's website HERE.

We're here today to talk about Phoenix! (SWOON~!!!!)


“Not everything is black and white, Violet. Don’t believe everything you’ve been told.”—Phoenix

He’s intense, sexy and otherworldly. Full of secrets, Phoenix is all gray in a world of dark and light. As an exile, he is not to be trusted, but Phoenix always seems to be there to protect Violet when she needs it most. Together, they shared one intense moment of passion. Now, when the electricity between Violet and Phoenix ignites, she discovers his hold over her has become more dangerous than ever. 

Sitting in Sydney’s glamorous Water Bar, Jessica reveals some enticing secrets about everyone’s favorite bad boy!

Phoenix is a marvellous character. He's not your typical bad-boy, there is so much more to him than meets the eye! He's like a roasted chestnut - hard and tough on the outside, but so deliciously tender and sweet on the inside. Of course, he won't show it! He'll play it all macho and evil, but we know better, don't we, ladies? He's so incredibly complex, intelligent, clever... and his character is full of pain, unfulfilled need for affection. I am completely and utterly in love with Phoenix, and I hope you love him, too! 

Here's how I picture our fabulous son of Lilith!

Um, yummy much?!

Entice by Jessica Shirvington

Hardcover, 464 pages
Published September 4th 2012 by Sourcebooks Fire
Violet Eden is Grigori - part angel, part human. Her destiny is to protect humans from the vengence of exiled angels.
Knowing who to trust is key but, when Grigori reinforcements arrive, it becomes clear everyone is hiding something. Even Lincoln. The only thing Violet does know: Phoenix's hold over her is more dangerous than ever.
The race to find the one thing that could tilt the balance of power brings them all to the sacred mountains of Jordan, where Violet's power will be pushed to the extreme. And the ultimate betrayal exposed.

Enticed is the second compelling book in The Violet Eden Chapters
