Character Profile: Phoenix from Entice


Today I'm absurdly excited to be a part of the street team for Entice, the second book in the Embrace Series by Jessica Shirvington. As a team member, I have the pleasure of bringing you the profile for one very special character in this series: Phoenix. Who's Phoenix you ask? He's the bad boy. And I think anyone who knows me is well aware of how much I love a good bad boy, so Phoenix and I are clearly the perfect match ;-) Except he's kind of a fan of Violet. Minor detail.

All this week, street team members along with the fabulous team over at Sourcebooks will be bringing you character profiles, tweeting quotes from the books, and hosting giveaways on Twitter to celebrate the release of Entice. All these fun promotions will culminate in the epic Entice Me Day, taking place this Saturday, September 15th, the details of which can be found using the link above. It should be an absolute blast! There will be giveaways. There will be a live chat with author Jessica Shirvington. There will be much Embrace Series awesomeness, so mark your calendars!

Now, on to the good stuff. The hot stuff. The Phoenix-related stuff :)

Here are just a few things about Phoenix you should know:

“Not everything is black and white, Violet. Don’t believe everything you’ve been told.”—Phoenix

He’s intense, sexy and otherworldly. Full of secrets, Phoenix is all gray in a world of dark and light. As an exile, he is not to be trusted, but Phoenix always seems to be there to protect Violet when she needs it most. Together, they shared one intense moment of passion. Now, when the electricity between Violet and Phoenix ignites, she discovers his hold over her has become more dangerous than ever.

Sitting in Sydney’s glamorous Water Bar, Jessica reveals some enticing secrets about everyone’s favorite bad boy!



Still want more Phoenix? You can check out his full character bio over on the Embrace Series page, and don't forget to take the "favorite quote" quiz while you're there! You can also find the full schedule leading up to Entice Me Day here, as you don't want to miss out on getting to know all the other characters!

  1. Woah, check out that bar! Snazzy. I'm always so impressed with the marketing strategy for this series. It's very effective. And definitely makes me want to check out the series - if only to find out more about this Phoenix character...

    1. I'm a sucker for the baddies (at least in fiction). I can't help it. They're all dark and frustrating and I just want to pounce on them.

  3. I might have to read this series. I love bad boy angels who live in the gray area (Patch). That was a cool setting for an interview. I'll have to come back tomorrow for her next interview.

    1. Yes. Violet is definitely getting in the way of our laying claim to Phoenix isn't she? *shakes fist at Violet* :)

    1. Phoenix is a very challenging character, but I think the challenging ones are the most fun because they make us work for everything. He's not in this second book much, but you feel the effects of his actions in book one throughout book two:)

  6. Aaah, every time I see this book pop up it makes me want to read it but I can't since I haven't even gotten to book 1. I need to read this soon! Phoenix sounds so cool! Haha.

    Great post, Jenny :D

    1. You'll definitely want to read book 1 first, this is a super complicated world and you'd be lost if you jumped in in the middle. Though I sometimes do that anyway:)

  13. Ooh! I have these two! I've been hesitating to start them because they're not really review books, and I'm not a angel fan, particularly. But Phoenix sounds...lovely. Plus, does this mean he's Australian? Because--swooooooon!
