Book Nerd

She has previously founded and run a coffee distribution company, Stella Imports, in London, and been involved in managing the restaurants Fuel Bistro, Tow Bar and MG Garage in Sydney.

She is currently a full-time mum, author and co-director in the company MPS Investments Pty Ltd.

On Writing …
One day, instead of picking up a new book, I started to write. The first name that came to mind was Violet. From there the rest naturally followed. I can honestly say, once Violet was discovered – she really did write the rest of the book!

Writing this book has drawn on my life experience – in my travels around the world and the different people I have met. It draws on love and loss and the overall confusion that comes with growing up. It also looks to many of my friends and their experiences.

I have always loved ancient history – tales and stories of the best kind.

Every day Violet Eden wonders whether she made the right choice.

She still doesn't fully understand these powers she's been granted as a half-angel Grigori. And worse, isn't even sure she's capable of using them. Stab someone through the heart? Really?

No matter how bad things get, though, Violet doesn't run and she doesn't quit. Even if it means she can never allow herself to love the guy she longs for. Even if it means asking her enemy for help. Even if no one is telling her the truth.

The war between Exiles and Angels is on—and she's wanted by both sides.

Jessica Shirvington’s second book in the Embrace series, Entice, continues the story of Violet who has a lot of questions and is trying to figure out exactly what she is. Knowing she is a Grigori, she has to think how it affects her mortality while still dealing with the events that occurred in the desert. Still struggling to accept her powers, the correlation between her and the highly dangerous exile, Phoenix, and having forbidden feelings for Lincoln, she has no time to reflect. A new group of characters joins the brethren sets hurdles with the likelihood a conspirator is within their circle. With all of these on Violet’s plate, her strong and gripping personality will keep readers engrossed and cheering her all the way to the end.

Jessica does not quit at delivering a very poignant thrill ride overflowing with action, drama, suspense, mystery and romance. The writing style continues to shine and brings out a wonderfully descriptive story of mythological angels. Readers are exposed to a highly detailed world that imagining their surroundings takes no effort. Jessica’s way of letting all of her characters have prominent roles in the story gives an overall aspect of the bigger picture. So much is happening but yet readers are comprehensive to everything. Entice continues to have the same amazing attributes from its predecessor, Embrace, and promises all subsequent books will follow the same rule.
