"Nora has another winner"

Ten years ago Sam Logan fled Three Sisters Island off the Massachusetts coast for the mainland. He left behind a devastated Mia Devlin, who loved Sam with every cell in her body. She thought forever, but he could not wait to escape the island.

Now Sam is back and his goal is to regain what he threw away in his youth. He wants Mia permanently in his life. However, she has made a new life for herself that includes running her bookstore and excludes her good neighbor Sam. He begins his campaign even as Mia faces a deadlier test than her two modern witch sisters have recently undergone. Mia, with the love of fellow witch Sam, can thwart the curse only if she trusts him with her heart and soul. However, if he deserts her again she doubts she could recover; giving in to the curse sounds safer.

After two powerful Three Sisters Island romances Nora Roberts had to FACE THE FIRE of providing a stand alone tale that readers would rank on a par with its predecessors and tie up the loose ends from the previous novels. Ms. Roberts succeeds providing her audience with one of the top sub-genre books of the year. The story line deftly combines a classic romance theme with a supernatural spin into a potent witch's brew. Mia and Sam are dynamite characters that the audience will appreciate and the return of the lead protagonists from the previous tales insures the curse comes full circle. Ms. Roberts stands at the pinnacle of writers as she once again provides readers with the best.

And as the deadline for breaking a centuries-old curse draws to a near, they must take the first steps toward destiny -- and come together to turn back the dark...
