Embrace the Night (Phoenix Files, #2)
From the city streets to City Hall, from the "All American City" of Fayetteville to the "City of Oaks", (Raleigh), North Carolina is rife with crime and corruption. Law enforcement, understaffed and overextended, do their best to stem the growth of violence and vice. But when they find themselves unable to break the case, they turn to a shadowy enterprise that utilizes the unique talents of the most gifted citizens among us: PHOENIX. The organization was founded in 1972 by Lt. J.T. "Phoenix" Pierce, a veteran of the Vietnam war and a proponent of the use of powers such as telekinesis, shape-shifting, and sorcery for the good of the people.

A Man of Knowledge
John Groves is a professor of World History in Raleigh by day. But outside the world of academia, he uses his special talents as a telekinetic to fight crime as a member of PHOENIX. He's strong, steady, and accustomed to being in charge, in both his careers and his personal life. Having lived on his own since the age of 17, he's never had to bow to anyone's commands since childhood- especially not a woman.
A Woman of Skill
Tatiana Yates owns a beauty shop in downtown Durham. After leaving the hot curlers and shampoo bowl behind, she releases the tigress within, running free in the forests around RTP. And ripping the bad guys a new one as a seasoned PHOENIX operative. She worked hard to study cosmetology, gain experience in the field, and move from employee to businesswoman. She's also worked her way up the PHOENIX ranks to lieutenant, and won't be disrespected by anyone.
PortraitLike any good Southern belle, Kianna Alexander wears many hats: loving wife, doting mama, advice-dispensing sister, and gabbing girlfriend. She's a voracious reader, an amateur seamstress and occasional painter in oils. Chocolate, American history, sweet tea, and Idris Elba are a few of her favorite things. A native of the TarHeel state, Kianna still lives there with her husband, two kids, and a collection of well-loved vintage 80's Barbie dolls.
