My Tease for this week comes from:


(The Violet Eden Chapters #5)

Jessica Shirvington

First - The Blurb:

Left Cover:
Nov 2013

Right Cover:
May 2014

It has been two years since Violet Eden walked away from the city, her friends, her future and - most importantly - her soulmate, Lincoln. Part angel, part human, Violet is determined to stand by the promises she made to save the one she loves.

Living in the perpetual coldness of a broken soul she survives day to day as a Rogue Grigori in London.

But when an unexpected visitor shows up at her door, the news he bears about someone she swore to protect leaves Violet with no choice.

Even worse, she fears that this might all lead back to the night she tries hardest to forget. And what was taken without her permission.

Violet is going back to New York ... and she knows exactly who is going to be there.

With Phoenix in her dreams and Lincoln in her heart she knows it is only a matter of time before the final choice must be made.

Second - The Tease:

Tease 1

There was no fighting it any more. We were two-halves of one whole. Each fundamentally incomplete without the other.
It wasn't like the first time - all new and explorative. This was real. Understood. Fought for. Against. Lost. Now found. And so much more.

Tease 2

Later, when I woke him with gentle kisses to his face and down his chest, I laughed when he grabbed me in response, pulling my mouth up to his in order to explain - in his own toe-curling way - that gentle kisses were simply not going to cut it. I'd never felt so beautiful, or loved, or cherished, or... flat out wanted. Years of imagination had gone into these moments and they did not disappoint. Bottom line: it was hot. He was hot.

Empower is the final installment to The Violet Eden Chapters. Although I enjoyed the entire series, I think that this final book was my favorite. Definitely worth a read.

Overall rating for this series: 5 out of 5

  7. I'm so glad you've enjoyed this series so much, Marilyn. And that the last book was the best! ;) I've been loving these teasers and these are no different. I'm really going to have to check out this series!

  8. Some have pointed out the http://www.dibaq.com/read.html possibility that in order to create the effect of weak gravity on the moon, the astronauts http://www.ventnorcity.org/tmp.html were carried by thin wires and filmed jumping around. NASA then slowed down the film, according to the conspiracy theorists, in order to make louis vuitton outlet it look like they were floating through the air. Doubters have gone far enough to construct their own wiring systems, film themselves and slow down the footage http://www.lakesideshopping.com/store1.html to compare it to NASA's video.
