Defiant Queen (Mount Trilogy)
by Meghan March
5 All Hail the Queen CROWNS
Defiant Queen is the continuation of everything I love about Ruthless King: sexy and dangerous characters, plot lines that keep readers on the edge of their seat, and a cliff-hanger that leaves them begging for more. With Defiant Queen, though, readers also get the growth and development of Lachlan and Keira and their relationship, making readers even more enamored with this couple.
Keira is the same spitfire heroine readers encounter in Ruthless King, but with Defiant Queen, she begins to see a different side of Lachlan Mount and embraces her sexual desires in relation to how she craves him and his effect on her body. Readers get to see her come into her own, embrace the new identity she is creating, and become this bada** CEO of her company. What readers will really enjoy is seeing her open up and become more vulnerable with Mount while still maintaining the pure essences of who she is as a person. Meghan March’s ability to combine strength and vulnerability into her heroines makes Keira, along with her many other leading ladies, some of my favorites.
Lachlan Mount undergoes a significant change during Defiant Queen. He is still that criminal, alpha male readers fell in love with, but there is a part of him that begins to want Keira as more than just a possession. With the advice of another character weighing on his mind, Lachlan begins to make changes with his interactions with Keira, showing a more considerate side to his nature, a side that seems to be only reserved for the woman he wants to claim as his own. This different side to him adds a new dimension to his character, and readers will have no choice but to fall head over heals in love with this man who should not be enticing at all.
Defiant Queen delivers on everything readers expect. The evolution of both characters, together and as individuals, as well as the impending danger as the two become closer, leads to a plot that once again has readers sitting flipping through the eReaders at lightning speed. As with most Meghan March series/trilogies/duets, the ending will have readers hitting their devices desperate for more. For me, personally, I couldn’t believe what I was reading. The emotion conveyed through the words written during the final chapters is enough to rip your heart out and make you want to cry. It will also leave readers with a sense of impending doom for all those involved because readers just know that retribution is coming, and I cannot wait to see what kind of ending Ms. March has for these two with Sinful Empire.
Meghan March is without a doubt crafting a story that will keep readers engaged from the moment they read the first word on the first page. Each character, each encounter between the heroine and hero, each moment in this dark and dangerous world seduces readers, and the will never ever want to leave.

The Mount Trilogy continues with
I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.
I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment?
They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.
But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.
I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.
I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.
But he has other plans . . .
