***GIVEAWAY WINNER*** of EMBRACE by Jessica Shirvington

***Rafflecopter has chosen its winner and it is...
Talynn Lynn! I've sent you a confirmation email and look forward to hearing from you! 
Thank you to everyone who entered and check back for upcoming giveaways, writing tips, and news on the progress of my novel JUDGES! Happy Reading!***



After reading Jessica Shirvington's EMBRACE--the first novel in the EMBRACE series--I couldn't resist a giveaway. 
This book was recommended to me by my agent after I asked her for a new awesome YA series to read. It didn't disappoint! It's filled with great characters, awesome action, and plenty of romantic tension. Definitely worth the read! 
So to win a copy simply fill out the rafflecopter below and be sure to leave your email address in the comments section of this blog so I can contact you if you are chosen!   
From Jessicashirvington.com: Violet Eden is dreading her seventeenth birthday dinner. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. The one bright spot is that Lincoln will be there. Sexy, mature and aloof, he is Violet’s idea of perfection. But why does he seem so reluctant to be anything more than a friend?
After he gives her the world’s most incredible kiss – and then abandons her on her front doorstep – Violet is determined to get some answers. But nothing could have prepared her for Lincoln’s explanation: he is Grigori – part angel and part human – and Violet is his eternal partner.
Without warning, Violet’s world is turned upside down. She never believed in God, let alone angels. But there’s no denying the strange changes in her body … and her feelings for Lincoln. Suddenly, she can’t stand to be around him. Luckily, Phoenix, an exiled angel, has come into her life. He’s intense and enigmatic, but at least he never lied to her.
As Violet gets caught up in an ancient battle between dark and light, she must choose her path. The wrong choice could cost not only her life, but her eternity…

  2. Weird... the Rafflecopter thingy for the comment didn't really work... But here's my comment! ;) And heyyyyyyyyy... Some of that synopsis has a familiar feeling to it... ;) Sort of. :) But tell me- does this book include S'Mores? If not, it might be a deal-breaker! :)

  3. Hey! I actually found your blog through Twitter. Now, I don't have a Twitter account, but sometimes, especially when I have entered a contest, I may stalk, er, read others post. So that's how I found you:) I noticed your "retweeted" my PitchLive tweet. I don't even know what that means, I'm sorry to say. Remember, I don't have Twitter! Nor do I have Facebook. I've been warned how addicting both can be...but I may break down soon and sign up for both:)

    EMBRACE sounds super cool, so I've put my name into the hat, uh, Rafflecopter and I'm your newest follower, saying nice to meet you:)

    1. Hello! Thank you for the follow! I've been following your blog for a while now and I do try to retweet (which is basically the computer version of shouting about a contest) blog posts/contests any time I can! They are both addicting but very useful tools! Thanks so much for entering and good luck! Nice to meet you as well!

  4. Okay found you! You were there way back in the list, which means you have been following me for quite some time. It was a different picture, too. And I think I recognize you from Miss Snarks' First Victim. Right?

    Anyway, I do apologize for not visiting earlier and giving you a follow back. I got a bunch of new followers all at once and my first ones seemed to get pushed tot he back of the list. Now that I've found your blog, and followed, I'll be visiting more often.

    Forgive my lack of appreciation and unthankfulness...
    *sends virtual hug over, and some chocolate as a peace offering!*

    1. Don't worry one bit! I don't mind at all! I understand how busy and time consuming social networking can be! And yes I participated in Miss Snarks' Critique Partner Dating Service :) It was such a great event!

      Anyway, please don't fret! I'm happy to have you as a follower now :)
