SINS OF THE LOST (Grigori Legacy #3)

Description:
 From the author of Sins of the Angels and Sins of the Son comes the newest novel in the “electric, thrilling and extremely intelligent” (Ex Libris) Grigori Legacy series.

Heaven and Hell are on the brink of war as Lucifer builds his Nephilim army and waits for his new agenda to become a reality — that of having a Nephilimchild of his own bloodline to lead his forces to cataclysmic victory.

With rumors of the pending war rampant on Earth, Alex fights to save humanity from its own panic –­ leaving little time for her fledgling
relationship with Seth, the man with heavenly origins who has captured her heart. But when Nephilim children begin to disappear, along with Alex’s own vulnerable niece, the inevitable war between Heaven and Hell becomes as personal as sin.

Heaven has its own plans to fight the coming apocalypse, but first it needs Seth back. Asked to betray the man she loves, Alex must turn for help to the soulmate she thought she’d given up — the Archangel Aramael, who may be her last chance to save her family and humanity from the ashes of Lucifer’s Armageddon.

SINS OF THE ANGELS (Grigori Legacy #1)
When homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis is assigned a new partner in Aramael, a Guardian Angel who doubles as a hit man, they have only one thing in common: a fallen angel hell-bent on triggering the apocalypse. Now they have no choice but to work together-relentlessly, fearlessly, intimately. Because only they can stop the rogue angel from ushering in the end of days.
















About SINS OF THE SON (Grigori Legacy #2)






When homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis sees a photo of Seth Benjamin on a police bulletin, she knows that Heaven's plan to halt Armageddon has gone terribly wrong. As the only mortal who knows of Seth's true nature, only she can save him. Aramael was a hunter of Fallen Angels until a traitor forced him into earthly exile. Now, with no powers and only a faint memory of Alex, his mortal soulmate, he will stop at nothing to redeem himself-even if it means destroying Seth in the name of the Creator...










About Linda Poitevin


Linda Poitevin was born and raised in B.C., Canada’s westernmost province. Growing up in an era when writing was “a nice hobby, dear, but what are you going to do for a living?”, Linda worked at a variety of secretarial jobs before applying to be a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). Due to an error in measurement, however, she was turned down when she didn’t meet the height requirement of that time. Undeterred, Linda became a civilian member in the force and was a dispatcher for two and a half years, during which time she met her husband, a police officer.
Following their transfer to Ottawa, Linda went on to become a real estate agent and then a human resources consultant before starting a family. She remained a stay-at-home mom, homeschooled her youngest daughter for nine years and, now that she has realized writing can be more than a nice hobby, she continues to live her dream of being a cop vicariously through her characters.
Linda currently lives near Ottawa with her husband, youngest of three daughters, one very large husky/shepherd/Great Dane-cross dog, a cat, two rabbits, and a bearded dragon lizard. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found in her garden or walking her dog along the river or through the woods.
In addition to her books, Linda also does freelance writing and editing. Information about her services can be found at www.lindapoitevin.ca. Linda is a member of Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, Quebec Writers’ Federation, Romance Writers of America, RWA Futuristic Fantasy Paranormal Chapter, and Ottawa Romance Writers’ Association.








My Unofficial Writing Partner
The life of a writer can be very sedentary...dangerously so, if one isn’t paying attention. I swear my butt could grow roots onto my office chair some days.
Fortunately, I have this to ensure that doesn’t happen:


Meet Charlie, my faithful companion of the last 4 years, alternatively (and affectionately) known as Charlie-horse because of his size: he’s 127 lbs and can cruise the countertops without stretching. I’m pretty sure the neighbors also thought for a while that his name was Jesus Dog, because that was how I inevitably greeted him at the back door after he’d dug another hole in my yard—and after he tried to walk across water via the pool’s solar cover and needed to be rescued before he drowned. *sigh*


Charlie is part husky, part shepherd, and part great Dane. Roughly translated, this means that not only is he big, he also requires a fair bit of exercise. Which is where I come in...and why I’m not about to grow roots to my chair anytime soon. While he’s a little more forgiving now that he’s older and more settled (I can skip the occasional walk), we still hit the trails several times a week. In Ottawa, we’re blessed with miles and miles of groomed walking trails running along the river and through dedicated greenbelt areas, and Charlie and I have explored many of them.
Walking with Charlie also comes with several bonuses.
1. Upper body strength-building: Charlie is a champion stick-fetcher and fully expects me to hurl the ones he brings to me.
2. Year-round exercise: because he’s part husky, our -38C/-34F winter temperatures don’t phase him in the least. I’ve learned to dress accordingly.



(Me, dressed accordingly.)
3. Real-life research opportunities: Charlie has made sure I have first-hand knowledge of what rotting dead things smell like. (You do not want to know what was embedded along with the grass caught in his collar on this occasion.)



4. A connection to what’s real and important in life...because when there’s this much joy to be found in simple sticks and water? Yeah, that has a way of keeping you grounded. :-)
