Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. I love it because it is basically a squee-fest where book lovers can choose one book that they are DYING to get their hands on. Check it out!

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…
I have been itching and wishing and DYING to get my hands on this book, the first in The Violet Eden Chapters series, already published in Australia. (HOORAY, AUSSIE YA!) The story is about Violet, a 17-year-old girl who gets caught up in some NASTY good-and-evil angel-business. The buzz and outstanding reviews for this one are all over the place, and since I’m a little bit late to angel books (I was busy reading other things, you understand), I’m kind of on the lookout for GREAT ones to help me get all caught up. EMBRACE is right at the top of that list. It sounds hot and complicated and FABULOUS. I can’t WAIT to read this one! The whole series sounds EPIC.
EMBRACE is coming out March 1, 2012 from Sourcebooks Fire.
