Beth Ciotta. Once upon a time someone asked me, "Why do you think you were put on this earth?" I answered, "To make people happy." I guess that explains why I've spent more than twenty-five years in the entertainment industry, singing, acting, and dancing my heart out hoping to brighten someone's day. A few years ago I discovered a new way to bring joy; storytelling. Earning a publishing contract was, like a standing ovation, the ultimate rush.

In addition to writing contemporary and historical romances as Beth Ciotta, I also write paranormal romances with Cynthia Klimback as CB Scott. It has been an inspiring and wondrous journey, and the adventure has only just begun!

Since the day beautiful socialite Afia St. John was born, her life has been plagued with bad luck. After losing her father and two older husbands in “freak” accidents, Afia now discovers her business manager has absconded with her fortune. Vowing not to rely on another man to guide her life, Afia refuses her godfathers’ help, and jumps at an unexpected job with the Leeds Investigations.

With a pregnant, broke, sister, and an investigation agency in the red, control-freak Jake Leeds can’t turn down the hefty but secret retainer offered by Afia’s godfather for hiring her. Quickly seeing beyond her poor business skills, wacky superstitions and sensationalized personal history, he realizes Afia is as generous in the heart as she is misunderstood. But life is never easy for the woman born on Friday the 13th. Will the sexy PI be the good luck charm that puts her on a winning streak or, like everything else in her life, will their relationship wind up Jinxed?

"The hi-jinks of Ciotta's charmingly imperfect heroine makes Jinxed a hip, witty, fun read." ~ Nan Ryan, Best-Selling Author of The Last Dance

"Fast-paced, sizzlingly sexy fun!" ~ Karyn Monk, USA Today Best-Selling Author

"Jinxed is an entertaining contemporary romance. Ms. Ciotta's gift for humor is appealing and she has done a fine job with all of the characters and plot. I look forward to her next book." ~ A Romance Review

10 out of 10! "Every once in a great while, a writer comes along and really breaks new ground. What makes Jinxed so different from other detective-dame stories is the totally original 'voice' of author Beth Ciotta. She's quirky with a different style and her characters are very original. The whole package works. I found myself laughing out loud and falling in love with Afia and Jake and flat out rooting for them to succeed on their own and as a couple. Great use of original secondary characters, too. Can't wait to read more from this promising new-to-me author." ~ Live2WriteNow, Reviewcentre.com
