With Entice, the second book in The Violet Eden Chapters or The Embrace Series, coming out early next month, I thought I’d do something a little fun on here. First off, I thought we’d discuss two of the main guys in the series, Lincoln and Phoenix. Second, how do you guys feel about a little giveaway? A copy of both Embrace and Entice?
To get things rolling, in September Sourcebooks will be having a day devoted to characters in the series which will lead up to Entice Me Day with all kinds of fun including more chances to win a copy of Entice and to enter the grand prize sweepstakes. While they will be doing that I figured that I would have my own little discussion on why I’m Team Lincoln instead of Team Phoenix. How does that sound?
Just to refresh your memories here are the covers for the first 2 books in the series that have released in the U.S.:
One of the reasons why I really love this series (besides the gorgeous covers) is the characters. Violet isn’t a girl willing to sit back and let some guy protect and save her when she can do it herself. She’s tough, yet vulnerable. And while I do love that, I also think that we’ve gotten some pretty awesome guys in this series as well.
Which brings me to why I’m Team Lincoln (this is based off my reading Embrace, I haven’t had a chance to delve into book 2 yet). From the moment Lincoln enters the story, it is beyond obvious the connection that he has with Violet. It is beautiful and intense and genuine. I never really felt like I had to question his motives. Lincoln wanted to love and protect Violet. But with Phoenix, I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop. I could understand why Violet was intrigued by him and wanted to learn more from him, I just never really felt like they were good together.
Phoenix is an interesting character and I definitely want to learn more about him as the series progresses, but I don’t think that he’s right for Violet. So, I am Team Lincoln all the way! What do you guys think?
And now on to the giveaway! If you would like a chance to win a copy of Embrace and Entice, then please fill out the Rafflecopter below (this giveaway is for U.S. Residents only):
