Jessica Shirvington’s young adult series Embrace will be adapted into a TV series, produced by Steven Spielberg. The first book, Embrace, has been followed up by three other novels, Entice, Emblaze and Endless.The books tell the story of seventeen year old Violet Eden.

Violet Eden has only ever wanted to be with Lincoln. But when he reveals a secret so powerful it could tear them apart, her world spins out of control. Then she meets Phoenix. Intense and beautiful, Violet is helplessly drawn to him...

Caught up in a battle between light and dark - where angels seek vengeance and humans are warriors - Violet must decide how much she's willing to sacrifice. And who she can love...

The Embrace series is being hailed as the next Twilight.
