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*

Lachlan Mount is the man in the shadows. He runs New Orleans but no one speaks his name. You don’t want him to know who you are. But Keira has caught his attention. Well, her husband had his attention as well as owed him a debt. When Lachlan comes collecting for half a million dollars, Keira is told she must pay or her family and friends will be in jeopardy. When Lachlan gives her the option to be owned by him to work off her debt, Keira has no other choice. Will these two be able to make this arrangement work or will Keira try for another solution?
“My body in exchange for my pride. That’s the deal I’ve struck.
I hate Lachlan Mount.
Even his name sends bolts of heat through me, spawned from wrath unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.
I hate how he makes me feel.
I hate that my body responds to him.
…the voice in my head whispers one more truth.
I hate that I want him to touch me again.”
I’m trying to think of how I feel about Keira, Mount and this strange arrangement they embark upon. I guess I’m throwing myself into Keira’s shoes and I’m mostly confused! I loved how domineering Lachlan could be and he’s definitely a man of mystery. The heat between Mount and Keira bounces back and forth between hatred and desire. Although Keira doesn’t like the idea of being told what to do, she definitely likes certain things Lachlan does to her at times. Bow chicka wow wow. Both of these two are stubborn and neither wants to give in. Because Lachlan never has to. He is definitely in charge even if Keira has not accepted it. I need to know what’s in the works! What’s next? Can Mount tame Keira’s fiery nature? How far is he willing to go?
This is a trilogy so we have two more books before we have Keira and Lachlan’s full story. I love books that continue on with the same characters and this one is definitely no exception. Especially with some of my favorite people from the Beneath series peeping in. Keep peeping! I LOVE YOU GUYS!

Ruthless King by Meghan March has been on my radar since she first started talking about the story that kept her up all hours of the night and this Mount character that refused to be silence until his full story was told. The moment this bad boy appeared on my kindle I jumped in and forgot about life. Ruthless King gives us the first part of Lachlan Mount’s and Keira’s story. I am extremely excited to see where the second installment takes us and how the final installment concludes their story. Mount is notorious throughout all of New Orleans – some knew of him while everyone feared him. You know the saying “things that go bump in the night” well I feel like Mount is the guy behind that saying — he makes things go bump in the night—it’s his way or …there is no other way really! Mount comes looking for Keira as she is the payment he is coming to collect on. Although she had no knowledge of what her late husband did, promised or bargained behind her back- she is now the center piece in the Mount’s chess game. Whatever Lachlan Mount wants he gets and he has his eyes set solely on Keira.
Throughout the entire story there is definitely a power struggle between Mount and Keira – Keira is one feisty lady who refuses to back down or show any sign of weakness. She stands up for herself and what she wants even if it means going toe to toe with the infamous Mount. The challenge that Keira gives Mount is like a drug for Mount – he has never been challenged liked this before and wants more and more of her. Despite the epic power struggle between the two the chemistry they have is undeniable. Mount has tapped into a part of Keira’s sexuality that she had an idea existed but no clue how deep and strong it was in her. He uses this to his advantage and Keira can’t help resist the powerful sexual chemistry/ connection they both have with one another. The chemistry and sexual tension between the two is HOT!!!
I feel like the best way to describe the story without giving away any spoilers, because really you don’t want this book ruined for yourself, is that it reminds me of being on a roller coaster as it slowly progresses up a hill. As it slowly approaches the top you are left in your seat feeling all kinds of feels — anticipation, adrenaline, nerves and that moment of “ohhhhhhhhhh ssssshhh@(!*” that is what this book is like. It gives you all these feels and then gives you a bit of a book hangover while you champ at the bit for the second part of this story! Meghan I am very anxious and excited to see where you take us on this adventure and can’t wait to buckle up and enjoy the ride of Mount and Keira.
