Curses, Lies, and Alibis

Curses, Lies, and Alibis

Better to ask the coven's forgiveness than their permission.

Roxy knows she should obey her Coven’s rules. After all, the only true magic left in the Earthly Realm hides in the bloodlines of the Bayshore Coven. Long ago, Hecate — goddess of witchcraft — warned their Olympian-blessed ancestors to conceal their true nature at all costs.

But after years of being invisible to her crush — and worse, bullied by his vicious on-again, off-again girlfriend — Roxy can’t take it anymore. Now, she’s a witch on a mission to change the crap hand the universe dealt her, and she’s willing to risk banishment or worse to make it happen.

When she meets a rebellious sorcerer in her dual-enrollment night classes at Bayshore Community College, her worldview is shattered. Kris challenges everything she thought she knew, raising disturbing concerns. If magic exists outside the Bayshore Coven, then the archaic rules imposed by a long-absent goddess must be wrong. Or, perhaps, their rules are tools being used to manipulate young witches into blind compliance.

Emboldened by Kris’ influence and willing to take her chances, Roxy performs a spell to make Ray Hammond notice her, even though she knows what she’s doing is forbidden. When the spell backfires, she is unprepared for the consequences of unleashing the vast power coursing through her veins.

Still, better to ask forgiveness than permission...right?

About the Author
C. J. Beaumont

USA Today bestselling author C. J. Beaumont writes paranormal romance and urban fantasy stories filled with wild love and mysterious magic. A lifelong book addict, mental health awareness advocate, coffee lover, and certified chocoholic, she constantly chases her fierce (and often quirky) characters through chilling adventures and wild worlds.

When she’s not casting her spell on the witches, shifters, gods, and vampires who keep her busy, she spends her time reading, obsessing over the CW’s Nancy Drew, watching reruns of Arrow and Once Upon a Time, playing Skyrim with her kiddo, tending her small menagerie of rescue animals, traveling, and getting into delightful trouble on little adventures with her fun-loving rogue husband.

Her passion for writing comes second only to her worship of reading. If you’re a fan of her books, she recommends you check out Alice Hoffman and Sarah J. Maas. They’re her heroes.

C. J. lives in Baldwin County, Alabama, splitting her time between Bay Minette and Orange Beach. She travels often for a variety of reasons including family fun, writing research, writing retreats, visiting faraway friends, and taking romantic getaways with her husband whenever possible. Some of her favorite travel destinations and activities include the Smoky Mountains, Caribbean cruises, racetracks (where her husband and brother-in-law drive hard and sometimes scare the bejesus out of her), and various theme parks.
