She's running out of time. And so is the world.
Claire Emerson is up against the clock. After learning on her sixtieth birthday that she's one of four Crones destined to save the world, she's been desperately trying to acquire the lifetime of magic she missed out on. But the mages who are out to destroy everything she loves aren't waiting, and when one of the other Crones ends up on Claire's doorstep—wounded and unconscious—Claire knows she's out of time.
Leaving the safety of her warded house, she goes in search of the remaining Crones … only to find them under siege by the mages and the nearly indestructible monster they control. And without control over her powerful elemental magic, she has no idea how to rescue them.
Can Claire harness her powers in time to help her fellow Crones defeat the mages—or will her efforts bring even greater disaster?

About the Author
Like most romance writers, Linda Poitevin is a firm believer in happy-ever-afters...especially since she's living her own. But she also knows how hard you have to work at those sometimes, and that's reflected in her stories about people who are as real to her as she hopes they'll be to you. People who live, laugh, cry, and love as hard as they can in this crazy life we all share. In her other-than-writing life, Linda lives just outside Ottawa, Canada's capital, where she is a wife, mom, friend, avid gardener, walker of a giant dog, and keeper of many (many!) pets.
