Win EMBRACE by Jessica Shirvington!

It starts with a whisper: “It’s time for you to know who you are…”

Violet Eden dreads her seventeenth birthday. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. As if that wasn’t enough, disturbing dreams haunt her sleep and leave her with very real injuries. There’s a dark tattoo weaving its way up her arms that wasn’t there before.

Violet is determined to get some answers, but nothing could have prepared her for the truth. The guy she thought she could fall in love with has been keeping his identity a secret: he’s only half-human—oh, and same goes for her.

A centuries-old battle between fallen angels and the protectors of humanity has chosen its new warrior. It’s a fight Violet doesn’t want, but she lives her life by two rules: don’t run and don’t quit. When angels seek vengeance and humans are the warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden…

    I love the cover. I also like books about angels because I am so over vampires. I especially like the fact that the main character and her love interest are both half-angels. It makes it more exciting.

    The biggest thing drawing me to Embrace is the angels. Angels are my absolute favortie paranormal and any book about them I am all over. Also the huge battle that will take place between the protectors and the fallen angels and the fact that Eden is chosen as a warrior. I love when the main girl characters get to kick butt. Oh and I can't forget about the two main guys, Lincoln and Phoenix. Definitely can't wait to meet them.
