Bane Illes never smiled.
He never spoke.
But each day, that brooding wizard 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—a lingering, soul knocking kiss.
Ten years later, someone has stolen the one thing that keeps magic hidden from the mortals in Crimson Cove and only Janiver can recover it. But returning to her hometown means she'll have to face the past and all the secrets she left buried there, including 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.
If you like Luna Joya, Lisa Edmonds, Hailey Edwards, and Ilona Andrews, you'll love this gripping paranormal romance of magic, intrigue, and passion!

Butler's tantalizing fantasy romance, originally self-published as Crimson Cove, burns slow and hot. When the Elam, a talisman that keeps the line between the supernatural and natural worlds taut, is stolen via blood magic, Janiver Benoit, a witch whose specialized magic abilities mark her as a Finder of Lost Things, is pulled back to her hometown of Crimson Cove to help get it back. Returning home after turning her back on her coven 10 years ago would be difficult enough, but on top of that, Bane Illes, the wizard she loved and lost, is leading the charge to recover the Elam which makes him her boss. When Janiver's friend Freya is murdered by a mysterious creature, Bane and Janiver set off with a team of supernatural beings to stop the creature, save the Elam, and restore peace in Crimson Cove. The magical elements are electric and the chemistry between Bane and Janiver is delicious. Butler (Infinite Us) builds the tension slowly, carefully pulling story threads to a satisfying but open ended climax. Readers will be eager to return to Crimson Cove.
This book had me enthralled from the very beginning right to the end. I love the magical world Eden Butler created. And fell in love with the cast of characters, most especially Bane & Janiver. While Jani was a fascinating & a tough woman, who held secrets close to her heart, Bane was power & mystery, easy to get lost in. Their connection was inescapable and while trying to deal with that, they are looking for lost magic and evil doers and hierarchies. I totally loved this book 😍. I cant wait for more!
