Joelle Riddle dumped Marcus Swift for a reason. All his lying and sneaking around seemed to point to a pretty obvious conclusion, and she deserved better.
Unfortunately for Jo, she was so angry that she stormed out without grabbing her favorite necklace — a gold chain with her recently deceased grandfather’s Lodge ring hanging on it. She wants nothing more than to get it back, but she refuses to talk to Marcus to make that happen.
The obvious solution is to sneak in his place and steal it back while he’s not home. It's just Jo's luck that things don't go according to plan as she's suddenly thrust into a world of supernatural secrets beyond anything she's ever expected.

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?

Once touched by dark magic, always tainted.
Roxanne Cole swore off magic for a reason. But now her little sister Kathryn has gone missing, and the only person willing to help is her pretty-boy nemesis, Ray Hammond. Roxy’s not sure she can trust him, but with nowhere else to turn, she’s forced into an uneasy alliance.
When the coven's high priestess also goes missing, it seems her sister’s disappearance is just a small piece of a much bigger puzzle. And the more she works with Ray, the more she realizes he’s just another temptation that could add to the ever-increasing magical missing persons count.
As bodies start dropping and the death toll rises, it becomes clear someone is declaring war on the Bayshore Witches. Now, if Roxy wants her little sister back, she’ll have to decide what, and who, she's willing to sacrifice.

Note: This is book one of a slow burn paranormal romance series that must be read in order to make sense.
Roxanne Cole’s little sister Kathryn turned the world upside-down when she outed witches as real, then disappeared without a trace. Now members of the coven are turning up dead, and the longer Kat’s missing, the more desperate Roxy is to find her…so desperate, in fact, that she’s hired her pretty-boy nemesis, P.I. Ray Hammond, to help her find Kat and ensure that she’s not the next witch to die.
Follow Roxy and Ray through this up-and-coming slow-burn paranormal romance series as they race against time and prophecy to save the only family Roxy has left.
A crumbling partnership. A fickle magic. A vicious killer.
With one witch already dead and her sister missing, Roxy Cole is hellbent on finding the killer stalking the Bayshore coven. But keeping the coven safe and finding the twisted killer is proving more than dangerous, especially when Roxy’s tentative alliance with Ray Hammond is crumbling fast.
Worse than that, Roxy can't seem to escape her grandmother's looming prophecy that six more witches are going to die if Roxy keeps searching for Kat. She can't just let her baby sister go, and is desperate to find a way to beat the odds and see her sister home safe without losing more witches in the process.
She knows only one thing can save them all: her magic. But she turned her back on that path a long time ago, and now—when she needs it most—her magic is playing hard to get. She'll have to find a way to tap into it, even if it means strengthening the darkness that was born when she made the biggest mistake of her life. If she fails to fully embrace her gifts, she will lose her sister and the other witches to a gruesome death, and she will never be able to live with herself.
