Curses, Lies, and Alibis
The Bayshore Witch Legacy – Prequel
One botched spell rips Roxanne Cole’s life apart at the seams.
The only true magic left on Earth hides in the bloodlines of the Bayshore Coven, a coven that forbids underage witches from practicing magic in the Earthly Realm. Long ago, Hecate—goddess of witchcraft—warned their Olympian-blessed ancestors to conceal their true nature at all costs.
Hecate also warned the Bayshore witches never to practice magic before attending Hecate Academy. Roxy should obey the Coven’s rules, but after years of being invisible to her crush—and worse, bullied by his vicious on-again, off-again girlfriend—she can’t take it anymore.
When she meets Kris, a rebellious sorcerer, in her dual-enrollment night classes at Bayshore Community College, her worldview is shattered. He 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.
Willing to take her chances, Roxy performs a spell to make Ray Hammond notice her, but it goes horribly wrong and she is unprepared for the consequences of unleashing the vast power coursing through her veins.
The magical aesthetic of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina meets the social issues of Thirteen Reasons Why in this gripping free prequel to C. J. Beaumont’s The Bayshore Witch Legacy series.
