Get ready for the darker and dirtier side of New Orleans with a brand new alpha romance from USA Today bestselling author Meghan March.
5 OH MY GOD CROWNS
WHAT THE HECK DID I JUST READ???? Meghan March has seriously upped her alpha romance, sassy heroine, unexpected plot twist game. The end of this story had me staring at my ereader with my mouth gaping, thinking, “wait! What?? What does that mean??” and dying to get my hands on book two, Defiant Queen, in the Mount Trilogy.
Mount, the man no one talks about, the man no one one wants to meet is the anti-hero of my dreams!! The more depraved, the more dangerous the better for me, and Mount fits this to a tee!! It is what makes him alluring and irresistible. This man commands power with no words, his presence alone emits danger, and others sense it and fold to his desires and wishes. How HOT is that?? On top of all of that, this man exudes sex, and there is no question as to what he could do to your body if you let him command it. Of course, we get to see a slightly different version to him when he is alone with Keira, but it is a small change in his behavior. He doesn’t want to force her, he wants her to submit freely and willingly. Yes, he plays with her, arouses her, demands things of her, but he never forces her, and this taps into female desire to be seduced and owned sexually. The moments with Keira and the moments with his minions also serves to show how severe he is in business and how much softer he is with Keria, both sides making him completely and totally captivating . You feel like he is a lion drawing you into his den, and you don’t care that he will devour you because it will be that good.
As alpha as Mount is, Meghan March delivers are heroine to rival him with Keria Kilgore. This woman has balls of steel, I tell you. First, she is carrying the business on her back through pure grit and determination. She is slowly making her way back from a horrible past relationship, for which she is still suffering the consequences of having. And although she submits to Mount time and again (and I can’t fault her for that EVER) sexually, she never does so without a fight. The fight in her is what I love most, and I honestly cannot wait to see how she evolves as a character throughout this entire trilogy. I think she is going to be my favorite Meghan March heroine.
On a completely different note, I think I’m in love with Magnolia. Her candor, her empowered views on sex, and her obvious love of Keria makes her prime BFF material, and I want her to be mine.
This story is one heck of a ride! From the first chapter, readers will be pulled in by the background and the unfortunate issues that are plaguing the heroine. The appearance of Mount and the subsequent days add to the suspense of the story, because, just like Keria, we have no idea what he wants for payment, we see the conflict of the heroine, and we see the allure of Mount. We just know that this ride is just getting started, as it is book one in the trilogy, and we know the plot twists are coming. And, boy, oh, boy did Meghan March deliver a plot twist I never saw coming, and there is nothing better than when an author can surprise me. Fair warning, though, you will be dying for book two the minute you end this book. So many questions, so many uncertainties, so many what the heck happens now. I cannot wait!!
Meghan March has again delivered a book I couldn’t put down, like, give my kids endless snacks, watch your iPad because Mommy needs to read kind of can’t put down. This trilogy is guaranteed to be a fan favorite of her loyal readers, but it will also earn her a hoard of new followers who will not be able to resist the seduction of New Orleans and its infamous crime boss.
