House of Royals Publisher's Summary

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, proving loyalty means far more than blood. You'd better watch who you trust in this town....

    Alivia has returned to Silent Bend, and the House of Conrath is stronger than it has been in centuries.

The tension between the Born and the Bitten could crumble the entire monarchy. It's a revolution that may leave no survivors.

    Lexington confessed to a crime he didn't commit to save Elle's life. Now she's summoned the one and only person who can spare him, but it comes at a dangerous price: confessing every one of her secrets to the King.

Trying to do good comes with unforeseen consequences - a cured Bitten, one who should have just walked away, and tried to forget, wants revenge. The cycle must stop, and the only way to do it is to expose all vampires to the world.
