Synopsis

Ten years ago Janiver stole a kiss from the meanest boy in school.

He never forgot.

Senior year.

One minute before the tardy bell rang, Bane Illes would slip through the door.

He never smiled.

He never spoke.

Each day, that dark, dangerous boy gave Janiver Benoit a glance. And when she could not take another quiet stare, or the warmth that look sent over her skin, she took from Bane something he’d never give freely—one lingering, soul knocking kiss.

Ten years later, her family needs her, and Janiver will have to face the one person she promised herself she’d never see again.

The dangerous wizard that might make leaving Crimson Cove the last thing she wants to do.

Sexy young couple on black background, horizontal Excerpt

“Your secrets are your own,” he finally said, a little of his confidence dimmed, but his resolve stronger than ever.

Good, I thought. He’ll need it.

“They are.”

One step forward and Bane stared down at me. “Then why do I get the feeling that what’s behind that wall isn’t just for you?”

Beyond us, I sensed the weight of the lines trying to breech across the safeguard Bane had placed inside me. He sensed it too, even nodded toward it when I looked at him, expecting confirmation. But he wanted an answer, didn’t seem to care that his spell had worked on me.

“Don’t go poking, Bane. Not all secrets need telling.”
Bane was only a foot away from me, his mind likely lingering around the confusion of that day, ten years ago, and the heat he thought he’d imagined. But it had been real. Hell, it was still so damn real and even with him tempering the lines from me, Bane seemed to know it too.

“A warning,” he started looking as though he wasn’t sure if he wanted me or wanted to be angry with me. “I may not be able to have complete awareness of your thoughts, but I can tell what direction they’re heading toward.”

“Meaning?”

“Meaning if I piss you off, I’m gonna know.” I shook my head, not caring if Bane knew how often he pissed me off. “Meaning that if I do something you like,” he moved his gaze down my body, then back up, “Well, I’ll know just how much you like what I do.”

“And if someone else does something I like?” He grunted, but remained silent. “I mean, if say, one of those primal, alpha shifters do something I really, really like…”

“I’ll damn well know.” The clip of his voice was a warning I took to heart.

“I see.”

There was little time left now for us to squabble or argue over what I kept from him so when I turned away, needing the distance, and he grabbed my arm, stopping me, and the shock was quick and, despite knowing him as I did, unexpected. “That daydream…” He pressed his lips together. “Felt damn real.”

My eyes kept steady on my wrist in his grip, as though on their own, they’d decided looking at Bane wouldn’t be smart. “Why are you touching me again?” Finally able to control myself, I looked up. “The spell is over.”

“Is it?”

There was something new, something strange to how Bane pulled me in. The lines weren’t calling me, insisting that I take him, claim him once again. They were, in fact, nothing more than a quiet whisper I could barely make out, begging now instead of insisting. The sensation had no bite, not as it did before Bane’s spell, but there was still a heat between us, that constant energy that no block could keep from us. We were drawn to each other even without the lines’ interference.

“Bane…” He inched closer and I held my breath as that pull—our pull—between us drew us closer. “What am I thinking now?”

He growled, rushing toward my mouth, warming it with just a brush of his lips. “The same damn thing I am.” He gripped my face between his fingers and kissed me hard, scorching against my mouth like he wanted to claim it. God, how I wish he would, and just that thought made that low, deep groan in Bane’s throat transform into a growl of pleasure.

The air around us dropped, the temperatures cooling the wind, bringing brittle leaves and small twigs from the trees around us. Nothing slipped into my thoughts as we came closer, as I forgot that I wasn’t supposed to touch Bane, that he belonged to someone else, that he was meant for something else in which I played no part. But just for that moment, I wanted to take him. I wanted his touch and taste all over me.

At the thought, Bane broke away, his hot, hurried breath fanning down my nose as he rested his forehead against mine. “This spell was an insanely bad idea.”

“Why?” Fingers fisted in his collar, he moved when I pulled him toward me, too eager, too anxious to keep from touching him.

“God, Jani, because now I know you’ve been thinking the same thing I have since the second I walked into your apartment.”

But I knew, I knew that it had all started for us far longer than a few days before.

“Bane…” Tell him no, I thought. Remind him who he is, who you are. But even thinking it was enough to settle him.

“I don’t think I much care,” he stopped me, answering my unspoken question about what would be or what should be. “God help me. I don’t fucking care about any of it.”

Like a flame igniting, like the rush of decision that is never given much thought, a decision that is more instinct than logic, we moved away from ourselves, from the people we were always supposed to be. There was no duty, no honor, no distinctions to be maintained, no expectations that need to be protected. We’d come this close before, the near making of something new, something forbidden, but this time I gave no thought to what would happen if I let Bane forget that I was not for him.

Just one flashing moment where we pulled against each other, where his touch felt like liquid fire on my skin, where my mouth against his throat made that huge man shudder at the feel of it.

“I don’t care either.”

It was all it took. Providence, destiny, the twist of some life altering event set in motion by the lines, by the gods, by whatever it was that bent our wills, directed our paths down the roads we took. My declaration, my small lie that I truly didn’t care, was enough to pick apart the moment that might keep us from it. It was enough to ricochet into something that could never be unmade.

That’s when the screaming started.

In the quiet din of darkness, with Bane holding me, devouring my mouth, insisting my body bend this way and that, a scream rent through the moment and torn it to pieces, followed by another, and another.

christie review 5 star a

Great paranormal romance from Eden Butler! It has been a long time since I’ve read a paranormal romance, and Eden Butler made me realize how much I missed them and why I loved reading them in the first place.

Jani comes from a long line of witches in her hometown of Crimson Cove. She always had a bond with the powerful wizard Bane, but all that changed when she left her hometown and turned her back on her family and Bane after a secret threatens to tear her apart. She thinks she has put that part of her life behind her, even if she has closed her heart to love, that is, until the past shows up at her door in the form of Bane. She is needed back in Crimson Cove after something that threatens their town has happened. Will she finally be able to put the past behind her, or will this time completely destroy her?

The story moves rapidly and many secrets are revealed. I loved how the flashbacks reveal the history between Jani and Bane which illustrates how tightly bound these two individuals really are. It also helps build the characters from superficial to very complex which made me bond with them as well. By developing her characters in the way she did, she pulled me into the story and wouldn’t let me go until I finished the last page. Eden Butler’s has a gift in the way she writes…she is so descriptive in the manner she writes that I could see Crimson Cove clearly in my mind! If felt like I was there with the other citizens in town.

I am new to Eden Butler, but I do have a lot of her books on my Kindle already. Thank you, Eden Butler, for bringing me back to one of my favorite genres. Looking forward to reading more from you!

Excerpt

Micah rushed out of his house and joined me in the pasture. “You ready, T?”

I looked down at his hand, where he held a piece of black cloth. “What’s that for?”

Grinning wide, he walked behind me and tied it around my eyes. I couldn’t see a thing. “We’re going to spar like this today. One day, you might have to fight using only a few of your senses. I want to see how well you’ll do.”

“Great,” I grumbled. Everything grew quiet, except for the birds chirping and the wind blowing through the trees. I know I looked like an idiot standing there twiddling my thumbs. A minute passed and then another. “When are we going to start?” I asked, lifting my hands in the air. There was no reply.

I was about to rip my blindfold off when my legs were swiped out from underneath me, and I fell hard to the ground, the breath whooshing out of my lungs. I gasped for air and shouted, “You’re gonna pay for that, Lyall.”

Laughing, Micah tried to take me down again, but I was prepared and jumped out of the way. “Good job. You’re learning fast,” he praised.

I crouched low and waited for him to strike again. “I knew you’d be impressed. Now give me what you got.” He rushed by me and I tried to hit him and missed. Several times he did the same move, but he was too fast for me to catch. I can do this. Taking a deep breath, I blocked out every other sound and listened for his steps. The second I heard the whoosh of air, I went on the attack. He tried to grab me, but I side-stepped him and smacked him on the back of the head. I burst out laughing when he growled.

“Didn’t expect that, did you?” I teased.

I thought he’d throw back a cutting comment, but there was only the sound of his rapid breathing. Before I could throw another cocky comment his way, he lunged and almost knocked me down to the ground, but I caught myself and got away. His movements were more aggressive and sporadic than usual. What the hell was going on?

My thoughts made me lose focus. Micah clutched me around the waist and we toppled to the ground. I tried to fight him off, but he grabbed my wrists and held them above my head, his legs straddling my waist. I could feel his breath on my face getting hotter as his body moved closer.

“Micah, what are you doing?” He moved down over me until our chests were touching, his breath on my lips. “Stop,” I commanded. Only he didn’t. As soon as our lips connected, his power blasted into me and I couldn’t fight back; my body didn’t want to. I knew it was Sebastian. The asshole had no right!

michele review 4 and a half stars

L.P. Dover does it again in this 2nd book of the Royal Shifters series! From the very first page I fell in love with the story and the characters.

This book is focused on Sabastian and Tyla. They have many obstacles in their path to finding their happiness. Tyla tries to find out what happened to her cousin and in the search she finds that her old pack is still alive. There are many surprises in store for these two, the question is… Will they make it out alive?

L.P. Dover does such an amazing job of creating a story that you just lose yourself in. You are so connected to the characters, you laugh, cry and are upset right along with Sabastian and Tyla. My heart ached for these two and everything they had to go through.

I’m interested to see what happens next in the Royal Shifters series. If these first two books are any indication, I know I won’t have to worry about me loving it. You can’t help but fall in love with L.P. Dover’s characters. If you’re looking for a story that has those sexy as sin werewolves, and a storyline that leaves you begging for more, this is the book for you.
