Paramour – Trials of Blood Book 2 by Rebecca Royce

Trials of Blood
USA Today Bestselling Author
Rebecca Royce



I hate vampires….
every single one of them.

Life has become like hell for me. Every day is a struggle to survive and I know just who to blame for this mess, the vampires. Those blood sucking creatures who made me addicted to their venom and then left me to rot. So when one of them pushes back into my life and nearly destroys it, once again, I should be doing everything possible to kill him.

I know that’s what I should do. So what does it mean that I am so drawn to those that I hate? What does it mean that I can’t stay away?

The reader should note this is book 2 of 3. The happy ending comes with book 3. You have been warned.



If you haven’t read the first book of this series STOP! Go back and read it. This book begins where Servant left off.

At the end of Servant, the guys were being introduced and fulfilling their promise to Maci. They didn’t have all the facts though and she was kicked out and with her addiction to the venom this could be a death sentence for her.

Ace’s father asked Wanda (from the bar) to help her, so she’s had a place to stay, she also found a couple of vampires willing to bite her for money. She found a job that coincides with a vampire’s hours so she’s surviving but just barely, she’s also just turned eighteen.

It’s as she’s about to get her first bite of the night from Samuel that Caesar shows up. He wasn’t subtle in his reaction to seeing an unworthy vampire about to sink his teeth in her.

Maci is understandably angry she needs the bite to live. So, when Caesar asks why she lets him have it. All the truth and pain of the last nine months comes out. His reaction is to stop her wrist from bleeding and carry her to Rowan’s old home. It’s here that Caesar learns that what they thought Fredrick agreed to was not what was indeed agreed. Fredrick only kept her alive not well which at this moment was very clear.

When Caesar feeds from her he bites her neck not her wrist. It causes a reaction that normally wouldn’t happen for at least a hundred years. It takes him by surprise, but he also knows Maci needs food and rest. He gets food and takes care of her, but she tries to eat too much and ends up sick during the daytime hours.

Things heat up with Caesar the next night, that’s also when Griffin shows up. Apparently, Samuel went to snitch on them, but now he’s dead and Griffin is here. His bite has the same reaction as Caesar’s for both of them, so they know it’s not just a fluke. They do however have to leave here, and Maci needs to shower and get her things from her apartment before that.

Maci is having dreams she’s not remembering them though. The first after Caesar’s bite and the second after Griffin’s. They are most interesting to us the readers.

There are still the others who haven’t yet shown up, but they do, starting with Tanner, then Ace and finally Rowan. Each have a different reaction to seeing her, but the feeding has the same affect across the board.

As promised in the note with the first book, there is much more heat in their relationship now. In fact, it’s downright sizzling.

I love the way this book progresses the story, there’s more about the Betrayer and the war. There are also more than few interesting developments. Including the cliff hanger.

I can’t wait for the next book in this series!

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it.

I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. I live in Austin Texas where I am determined to eat all the barbecue in town.

I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I’ve been told I’m a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

I’d love to hear from you!
