The Mount Trilogy continues with Defiant Queen... 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 . . . Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire.
Defiant Queen upped the ante with Lachlan Mount and Keira Kilgore in this follow up to Ruthless King, the second in the Mount Trilogy. I loved seeing Lachlan and Keira getting to know each other a bit more past the deal that brought them together. Seeing Keira in her element as a powerful, intelligent and respected business woman certainly changed the "game" and power struggle between the two. It made things in Lachlan's world a bit more dangerous because a man with a woman on his arm like that, one who can make him lower his guard even for a moment, is a vulnerability Lachlan Mount cannot afford. I loved both these characters even more in Defiant Queen. Truths were revealed that changed the course of how each views the other, drawing them closer than either expected. With the final installment looming near it's too earlier to call it and say Defiant Queen is my favorite but with the way in which I devoured this book, it just might be.
My oh my. I'm officially under the "Mount Effect". Meghan upped the ante with Defiant Queen and won tenfold. This book was fantastic.
I really liked Lachlan Mount in Ruthless King but I fell in love with him in Defiant Queen. He is one alpha male that I would do whatever he told me to. We get to find out a little bit more about Mount in this book which I thoroughly enjoyed.
The chemistry between Mount and Kiera is Off. The. Charts. I was pretty sure my kindle was going to start smoldering because it was HOT.
Defiant Queen is full of twists and turns that will keep you captivated. The pace of this story was perfectly executed. Meghan does a great job of making you love the anti-hero. I can't wait to dive into the third and final installment of this series. I know it won't disappoint. This book has solidified that every single Meghan March book will be an instant one-click.
*Side note* I purchased the audio version of this book and really enjoyed it as well. The narrators did a great job with it.
Get ready for the darker and dirtier side of New Orleans with a brand new alpha romance from USA Today bestselling author Meghan March.
New Orleans belongs to me. You don’t know my name, but I control everything you see—and all the things you don’t. My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met. I didn’t need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt. To have her in my debt. She doesn’t know she caught my attention. She should’ve been more careful. I’m going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her. It’s time to collect what I’m owed. Keira Kilgore, you’re now the property of Lachlan Mount. *Ruthless King is book one of the Mount Trilogy*
