If you loved BRANDED, you won't want to miss HOUSE OF ROYALS, Keary Taylor's newest dark, romantic read.

Every town has its history and skeletons, but Silent Bend, Mississippi’s are darker than most. Ruled from the shadows by the House—the immortal Born and their aging, enslaved Bitten—everyone knows not to go out after dark and that the police will never look into crimes involving blood.

Alivia Ryan didn’t know the man who claims to be her father through a will even existed until she inherits the Conrath plantation. Instead of the sleepy house she expects, she finds a mansion and a staff who look at her with fear in their eyes.

Ian Ward tried to kill Alivia the first time they met, and then insisted he train her to defend herself against the House, who he claims will try to manipulate and take her in for their own political reasons. And the growing attraction between them will threaten their lives—Ian is a sworn enemy of the House.

In Silent Bend, people disappear, the threat of a demented King and the legend of his resurrecting Queen hang over everyone’s heads, and proving loyalty means far more than blood. You’d better watch who you trust in this town…

~My Thoughts~

I honestly didn't know this was about vampires until I read a review. Though now reading the new summary I can kind of see that it is haha. Anyways, I haven't read a vampire book since early last year so I was excited and not gonna lie, a little bit nervous to see what Mrs. Taylor was going to bring to the table. I should have never doubted her!

She brings an interesting and fresh tale that I think all vampire lovers would love! Throughout I was sitting on the edge of my seat, especially when we were learning more about the vampire world! I was instantly hooked, seriously on the edge of my seat! I did not want to leave this world! I also loved how this kind of reminded me of The Originals, with it being in the south and all the hierarchy stuff. Oh god, I just love the south and Mrs. Taylor brought it to life beautifully! It just sucked me in more!

Alivia (god, I love that name!) brought many feels to me! Especially the doomed end to her and Ian, who by the way got like 3x hotter when we find out that he's a virgin! Or am I the only women here that thinks that? Anyways, I was cheering for them throughout the whole read! *Small spoiler* Even though there relationship is doomed from the start as he's a vampire hunter and she's a Born.* Which is why it was such an emotional roller coaster for me, especially at the end. Oh my gosh, that ending! I honestly saw it coming because I didn't think Mrs. Taylor would be that mean so I was literally jumping with joy at the end! My heart was so happy! I can't wait to find out how that's even possible in the next book!

Overall I absolutely enjoyed this! I loved that Alivia took things into her own hands and didn't wait for anyone else to make any decisions for her. She is one kick ass character! She's strong and smart (loved where she hid many wooden stakes in her dress!) and I can't wait to see what she does in the next one! God, I'm sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the next one!

*Was given an ARC from the author in exchange for my honest review*
