    5 STARSEvery time I think I have her figured out, I realize none of my normal barometers apply when it comes to Keira Kilgore. She’s the exception to everything I thought I knew.Dear mother of GAWD. I'm obsessed! OBSESSED with this trilogy. It's like it was custom written for me. I want to slap someone with my kindle right now, it was so good. Yes, this is perfectly normal. Quit side-eyeing me.I have the worst book ADD when it comes to trilogies. Never has one kept me as completely riveted as The Mount Trilogy. Never. I thought I was hooked after Ruthless King but that was nothing compared to what I was feeling after finishing Defiant Queen. I devour and I mean devour these books in one sitting. I cling onto every morsel of information about the mysterious and deadly Lachlan Mount. And I fall even more for the hard-headed, independent, and sassy Keira.Defiant Queen was just as perfectly paced and action packed as the first book, if not more. We get more details of Mount's past that helps paint the picture of why he's the man he is today.If there were a scale to determine the purity of a person, I would send one side crashing to the ground with the weight of my sins, and laugh while I watched.Meghan March has written an anti-hero to beat all anti-heroes with this man and I will NEVER get enough of his domineering and sexy ways. Secrets are revealed, twists and turns come out of nowhere, and what started off as a debt, soon turns into something much more complicated for both Keira and Mount.I finally understand the reason it’s called power exchange, but with Mount and me, it’s more accurately termed a power struggle. He takes. I fight. He threatens. I rebel. He taunts. I argue.The heat is downright incendiary with this installment. And I mean INCENDIARY. The story was downright addicting. And the ending? ABSOLUTELY INFURIATING.So if you'll excuse me, I'm off to rock myself in a corner somewhere until the release of Sinful Empire.ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest reviewFind me on:

    ‘DEFIANT QUEEN:’is the second book of theMount Trilogyby Meghan March and picks up right whereRuthless Kingleft off. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’.In this we see a different side to Mount emerge which we didn’t really see in the first book, he was all hard corners and ruthless in this we finally get to see the man within. I loved reading about his childhood, what set him on the course he’s on today. So many layers to him like an onion each chapter we peel off another layer.The majority of my life is lived in shadows. People whisper my name, as if afraid saying it out loud will bring me to my doorstep. Mount had been abandoned on some church steps, quickly put in the system, shoved from foster home to foster home until he made his escape and clawed his way up from the gutter now he's a ruthless cutthroat powerful man no one deceives. I'd been in such a book funk and nothing seemed to have been able to pull me out of it, until this book!! Even though I'd been forewarned about the cliffy that was going to come rushing at me I can honestly say I wasn't prepared for how big that cliffy was going to be, it could turn out to be a whole new game changer, now that shitty waiting game starts of needing, wanting the next book, and I for one can not wait!!

    Not for under 18!I loved to get more information on Mount, especially in the first chapters reason why he is like and who he is! Save to say that 1st chapter of his past blew my mindIf you read book one the following chapters kicks off where book one ended, Kiera’s character grown since then, This installment contains drama, but unfortunately how much information can I give not to give away the story-line? Anyway Meghan sensual scenes are hot add Mount to it and just WOWI really enjoyed this read, and according to my new rating system the author achieved a 100% score from me!

    *****FOUR STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}This was only ever supposed to be sex. Repayment on a debt owed. But it has spiraled out of control, and now I’m terrified it’s becoming something else entirely—which is impossible.While ”Ruthless King” focused on Keira’s story, in ”DEFIANT QUEEN” we get to know our sexy and domineering alpha male, Lachlan Mount. I enjoyed this one so much more than the first book because, to be honest, Keira is an incredibly annoying heroine and Lachlan doesn’t become an integral part of that story until it’s almost to the 50% mark. In book one Lachlan seemed to be cold and calculating and it was hard to get a good read on the person he truly was on the inside, but we will learn in this installment that he was born into a dismal existence where he never knew what it was like to grow up in a safe and loving environment. All he’s ever known is the depths of cruelty that people were capable of. His abysmal beginnings are what helped drive Lachlan to become New Orleans’ most ruthless and powerful businessman.Lachlan is perplexed by the feelings he’s developed for Keira. Never has a woman gotten to him the way she has. While he finds her stubbornness to be a turn on, it started to grate on my nerves. It seemed as if she was purposely fighting him on almost everything just to come off as a woman he will never be able to tame. Business associates are starting to notice that Lachlan is losing some of his focus and that Keira might just be his weakness that can be used against him. He tries at times to put some distance between them but his heart is already deeply invested and he’ll do anything to make Keira his for the long haul. Lachlan sets a plan in motion to win Keira’s heart by sweeping her off her feet with grand gestures. It ends up softening her heart but also confuses her at the same time because she believes she is nothing more than a passing whim to Lachlan.Just when the two are discovering their true feelings for each other, we get slammed with another huge cliffhanger of an ending. Someone’s life seems to be in jeopardy, but I’m not revealing who. You’ll just have to one-click this book to find out.

    "I was a fool thinking I could take her, fuck her, and keep her in a little box on a shelf like any other toy."A captivating read!This amazing author worked her magic once again to deliver another mind-blowing read in the Mount Trilogy. Ruthless King rocked my world and the second installment Defiant Queen, took me to a new level of intense ride. Loved it with passion and couldn’t put it down. Difficult to talk about it without giving anything away. Just know this book has it all. Great storyline, action, secrets, romance, passion and freakin' hot sex scenes - like seriously scorching HOT. Keira and Lachlan are incredible characters and their story is perfectly told. Kayla is strong and sassy and my favorite type of heroines. I enjoyed watching her give Mount as good as he gave. We do get to see some of Mount’s past and it was good to have an insight into what made the infamous Lachlan Mount the man he is today. He’s captivating, I loved him. I enjoyed that this powerful and dangerous man hadn’t factored into his twisted plans the beautiful, passionate and determined woman that will thwart all his plans and worm her way into his heart. I don't think I'll ever get bored of reading about him! And the ending left me in utter chaos and I am now anxiously and impatiently awaiting the final book in the series."I see Keira Kilgore exactly for what she’s becoming—the one woman who might be strong enough to stand by my side and rule an empire."

    Keira KilgoreWe're Irish. We believe in fate. The right man will find you, and he won't let you go when he recognises what he's got.Athough this book is called Defiant Queen, Mount is the one that mainly tells the continuation of the story and thinks of his feelings. That way, he will be more likable and more understandable for the actions. Obviously he is not that powerful man who cares for nothing. He has weaknesses and insecurities. He will need a few advices.Mount and Keira's relationship will be more meaningful and their feelings for each other will also be part of the equation. The debt is almost forgotten most of the times that they are together. And when they are together, everything is more intense.I offered him honesty, and he responded with dominance. Like always.So, I'll give him what he expects from me. Attitude. The cliffhanger from the end of book 1 will be taken care of almost immediately, but there will be another cliffhanger in the end of book 2. More shocking. Yes, book 3 is already in my e-book reader!

    Keira Kilgore has become something I never intended, but I make the rules in my world, so there’s nothing fucking stopping me from changing plans now. The best part about being the king? I can do whatever I want”. Well SHIIIIIIIIIT!! I went into this one with such a full force because of that ending in “Ruthless King” and let me tell you something… I would kill to go through that ending again instead of what happened at the end of this one. I seriously think this author is trying to test us or make us drink more! Whatever the case may be, I know without a shadow of a doubt that if I don’t have “Sinful Empire” in my possession within the next few weeks, I’m going to lose my ever loving shit!If you’ve read “Ruthless King” then you’re familiar with who Lachlan Mount is and his relationship with Keira Kilgore. If not, then your butt need to stop reading this review and go read the damn book. Lachlan was a mystery for me in book one and the one thing that I was hoping for in this one, was that we were going to be shown just how ruthless and terrible he truly was. I was practically craving it and the minute I read the prologue and first chapter, I was damn near scared to go through the rest because EFF.ME ON SITE. I freakin got it!! They say be careful what you wish for and my wishes are now on hold when it comes to that man. Told in dual pov’s, this is the continuation and aftermath of what happened when Keira came face to face with her past and the lengths that Lachlan would go through to keep her safe. This wasn’t an easy task seeing that she wants nothing to do him and his corrupted world. But from the moment Lachlan made himself known to her, there was no going back for Keira and those feelings of hate are quickly being disintegrated. With every passing moment, lines are being blurred and for this couple, someone is bound to get hurt. “I am not a good man. My soul is black. My heart is stone. My reputation isn’t legend or myth but a collection of facts.”I really loved the fact that we got to see a whole other side of Lachlan in this story. I always wondered what was the Breaking Point that made him into the man who is today and looking back into his past, we got a glimpse of it. But make no mistake, this man has been through his fair share of a hard life and he worked his butt off to being the King of New Orleans, bloody fingers and all. We also got to see him interact more with Keira and I will admit that I swooned A LOT when it came to those simple but memorable moments. I honestly didn’t think that this series cliffhanger could get any crazier, but once again I’ve underestimated this author and I’m going to do something I’ve never done while reading a book. I’m going to pray for any and all future enemies!! There’s a war coming and in this Sinful part of New Orleans, there can only be one King ruling his Empire.

    This book had absolutely everything I was looking for! Drama, steam, romance, some clichés, mystery, crazy killers and a to be continued… sniff…Mount was moody, scary, sweet and caring…He was truly perfect. He could scare you and at the same time keep you all hot for him! And Keira was such a kickass heroine! I loved that she spoke back to Mount and wasn’t scared of him like everyone else. The sexual tension and angst was scorching in this book. I loved the storyline with the intricate suspense plot along with the romance. All the secondary characters are amazing and add so much to the story. You won't want to put this one down. The story pulls you in and refuses to let you go. It's hard to say too much without giving away what happens, but I promise, you'll be reading hard and heavy sucking this book in. I found it to be exciting and I look forward to finding out what happens next with Mount & Keira. In short:Hero 5/5 | Heroine 5/5 | Plot (Point, Originality) 5/5 | Writing Style 4/5 | Steam 5/5 | Romance 4/5 | Angst-Suspense 5/5 | Darkness 2/5 | Humor 1/5 | Secondary Characters 4/5 | Drama-Conflict 4/5 | Mystery 4/5 | Twists 4/5 | Pacing Fast | Action 3/5

    Title: Defiant Queen (Mount Trilogy #2)Author: Meghan MarchGenre: Contemporary RomancePublication Date: November 14, 2017Defiant Queen is the second installation in the Mount trilogy. If you've read my review of Ruthless King (Here), you'd know that I wasn't really into Ruthless King unlike some of my fellow bookworm friends BUT I am now finally a convert. I'm gonna hop into the bandwagon and celebrate this beauty of a book!Defiant Queen was everything I needed from Ruthless King... It had all the badass-ness (if that's even a word hahaha...but we'll take it ok?) and sexiness with the emotions I craved for in Ruthless King.Mount is still dark,broody, lethal and unforgivingly sexy but atleast now he doesn't feel like a robot anymore. We finally get to see some 'human' emotion from him. And YUM!!! I am in love with Lachlan Mount!Keira is still fiesty as ever. Love that!Mount and Keira are THE BOMB in this book! Their chemistry is insanely good and sexier than I could even imagine!This book is fast paced- filled and sinfully sexy. Don't even get me started on that cliffhanger! That cliffhanger?!OMG!! I need Sinful Empire...Pronto!For more reviews and giveaways follow my blog at www.jemimajamir.com

    ➦Hokay so. Let me fire it up.➦Just as a heads up, I will be reviewing all the books in this trilogy in this one review. Because it's just better that way, people. Trust me.➦Don't be thinking I'm lazy or something. I work hard, people.➦Well, nothing besides writing this awesome review here, of course. So here is. I think Meghan March is a great writer AND I think she's a smart writer. The first two books were brilliantly done and kept me in suspense. I simply needed answers and could not wait for the conclusion. ➦It's nothing that hasn't been done before, but it was done well. The rich and powerful mafia boss, the beautiful woman who, as turns out, owes him a lot of money. He doesn't want money, though, he'll just settle for HER. ➦May be, but it was also kinda hot. Now, some parts of this book were very very good. I especially loved flashbacks to Mount's childhood. Those are aaaaalways my favorite parts. I even teared up a bit. Having said that...➦Book three is where it all gets wrapped up. I won't lie and say that I rolled my eyes a lot.➦Before you slap the crap out of me, people, remember that this is a positive review! :D But anywhatever, it was a bit too much inner dialogue like "I am the baddest baddass and they will all die because I'm the biggest baddest badass and everyone knows it." It was a bit repetitive in a way it was delivered. ➦And the last thing, some logic gaps. At least I, for one, didn't find some things that "explained" plot twists very logical. As an example... Imagine you let your friend drive your kid to school one day. Then imagine this friend gets arrested for doing 105 on a highway. But in her defense she will say, um, something like, "I had a hunch it would be okay to speed like a maniac today." O.O➦To wrap this up, recommended to anyone who loves mafia/crime romances, but on the light side. Not too dark but extra steamy. And here's my seal. The seal of approval.

    Okay, I'm seriously torn about this book. I loved how we got a better insight into Lachlan (yes, I am now going to call him Lachlan now and not Mount lol), what drives him and his past. And there were some really hot scenes. The whole Dublin part was too cute. I really enjoyed seeing how Lachlan and Keira's relationship is developing. But, on the down side . . . that ending! I can't believe it ended there. I'm really annoyed that it actually ended like that. But will I stop reading the series? No, way. I need the third book. NOW!

    Keira & Lachlan are a fun insta-lovish, insta-lust couple. Lachlan's got everyone bought out in New Orleans, and he's still got Keira bought out in this book, but he's also letting loose with his feelings, little by little, for Keira, and her for him. Ends on another cliffy and book 3 (final book in the series) comes out in December 2017.I enjoyed this one a little more than book 1, but these types of books are not my go-to.If you want a sexy-bad mouthed-dominate-guy with sex toys, this series might be the one for you.

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UKDefiant Queen starts off after a big shocker that ended Ruthless King. Diving right back into the story we get to see how Keira and Lachlan are handling each other and how Keira is doing after getting such a big shock. This serial has not slowed down at all throughout these two books and I love that about them. Serials are always a little iffy for me because I find that inevitably one of the books will be very slow and seem more like filler to keep the story going. But I definitely did not have that issue with Defiant Queen and this book had me captivated just as much as the first one. I might even have liked it a little more since we got to dig a little deeper in Lachlan and who he is. I liked getting more of the focus put on him so we could see his motives behind things. Bottom line though, both of these characters are great and I can't wait to get the conclusion to their story.ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.

    I am not a good man. My soul is black. My heart is stone. My reputation isn't legend or myth, but a collection of facts.Fast paced, full of rush and adrenaline in all the push and pull struggles and sexy encounters between the king of the underworld Lachlan Mount and Keira Kilgore, the only woman fit to stand by his side...if only she'd do it willingly, if only she'd realized she's right where she belongs, as his queen...but still a defiant one...I see Keira Kilgore exactly for what she's becoming - the one woman who might be strong enough to stand by my side and rule an empire.And Mount changes his tactics, instead of completely stripping Keira of any kind of sense of freedom by his possessive control, he lets his guard down and decides to show her a different side to him...that only she is allowed to see...At some point, you're going to realize this is about far more than a simple debt.But then...just when we are somewhat lulled by the sensation of a different Mount, the overwhelming passion betweeen them, the merciless world of Mount's doesn't sleep, and is spreading its evil tentacles...just enough to reach right where it will hurt him the most...And fuck me with that cliffy again...

    OMG! Get ready for the build-up of all build-ups! Mount and Keira are back and things are getting even HOTTER, if that is even possible! Meghan March has taken it to the next level with this series and I just can’t wait to find out how this epic romance is going to come full circle! DEFIANT QUEEN is the highly anticipated book two in the Mount Trilogy and you ladies are in for a real treat because if you think you had a hold on Mount after just a taste in book one, you have NO IDEA what you’re in for! We dive into the past with him and it is NOT pretty.Meanwhile, Keira is more sassy than ever! She is such a strong heroine and such the perfect match for an alpha like Mount. This book begins the war between head and heart, and neither are backing down. If you thought you were left with questions after RUTHLESS KING, get ready for more twists, turns, and trials of the heart in DEFIANT QUEEN. We are one step closer to what I know is going to be one HELL of an EPIC CONCLUSION to the series!

    Defiant Queen is the second part in the Mount Trilogy that tells us the love story of Mount, the king of the New Orleans’ underground, and Keira, the woman who challenges him like nobody has ever done before. I loved this book even more than Ruthless King. I devoured Defiant Queen! It was so addictive, steamy and (a little) dark.There were many chapters told from Mount’s point of view and I loved that! Mount was still a mystery at the end of Ruthless King and I know him better now. There were little peeks into Mount’s life. Mount has a soft side, but he only shows it to Keira. He’s very protective and possessive over Keira. He wants her more than she realizes. Keira is so different than any woman he has met and he loves that.Keira is still the sassy, passionate, feisty and independent woman as she was in the previous book. She loves the family company and wants to make it even more successful. Keira still isn’t sure what to really think about Mount. A part of her is definitely attracted to him and maybe even starts to like him, but what to think about his dark side? Mount manages to surprise her sometimes and she enjoys that. I’m really loving Mount and Keira’s story. I’m really loving Mount and Keira together and they’re growing closer. I’m loving getting to know the darker side of New Orleans. I’m loving meeting more people of that dark side and I’m already hoping for some characters to get their own book. But for now, I need to get my hands on Sinful Empire. That cliffhanger was just too shocking. It had me rereading the last few pages and turning the pages hoping for more.-- My honest review is based on an advanced reader copy of this book. --

    The book opens thirty years earlier with the event that set Lachlan on the path to being the man he is today. That glimpse into his past was heartbreaking and just made love him even more.The cliffhanger from the previous book is next and then it’s Lachlan and Keira together and I loved it.This is an incredibly short review because after the cliffhanger I’m moving straight onto the third and final book Sinful Empire with no time to waste.

    I am pleased to announce that within the first few pages, there is immediate relief from the cliff hanger we ended on in Ruthless King. However, as the title of this indicates, Keira remains defiant to Mount's never ending dominance and demands. And so she should! Keira does have plenty of moments of acquiescence, when Mount gets her so aroused that saying no would be just plain stupid, in fact even forming words would be impossible.'Facing this man is like taking on a category 5 hurricane. My conflicting emotions surge within me.'We see another side to Mount in this story, we get more of his back story and how that has shaped who he is today, but we also see a side of him that even he doesn't recognise. He is falling for Keira and is in uncharted waters - he has no idea how to show her how much he cares, without being domineering or arrogant. This will be a huge learning curve for him.'Every time I think I have her figured out, I realise none of my normal barometers apply when it comes to Keira Kilgore. She's the exception to everything I thought I knew.'As much as Keira enjoys defying him, there are several moments in this story where he completely blind sides her and in a good way. We also learn that Mounts interest in her was not as recent as she first thought, in fact he may have had his eye on her for much longer, I am sure more will be revealed in the final story.As these two get deeper into their arrangement there is more risk involved. The usually 100% business orientated Mount is dividing his attention between work and the woman that is changing everything for him. This defiant irish hellion queen is mind fucking him now and while he may be trying to work out what he is doing with her, he doesn't want it to stop.'I see Keira Kilgore exactly for what she's becoming - the one woman who might be strong enough to stand by my side and rule an empire.'Sadly though, it does. Oh yes, you guessed it, another mother-fucking cliff hanger..... I will enjoy the anticipation of Sinful Empire - cannot wait!

    4 “Changing” StarsDefiant Queen is the second book in the Mount trilogy. It’s as sexy if not moresothan book 1 and the action is just as fast paced. Getting to know more about Mount and seeing a bit of different side of him had me flipping the pages as fast as I could. Kiera isn’t out of the woods and she knows it even if the more time she spends with the domineering leader of the underworld she falls a little bit more. Leaving me gasping for breath, I’m so excited to see where this trilogy leads.ARC provided to A is for Alpha B is for Books for honest review.

    5 Taunted, Teased and Succumbed Stars* * * * * Spoiler FreeMeghan March has made me a follower... A devout reader who takes her latest work to bed, middle of the night reading and sneaking time away from work reading...In other words...She has held me captive with this Mount Trilogy and there are no complaints at all. In fact, I relish the lack of sleep and sneak reading because it means she has done everything right in this second part. In Defiant Queen we are brought to the evening ending in Ruthless King. Keira Kilgore has been put in the position by her dead ex conman husband...having to "Pay Back a Debt" to Lachlan Mount who is the undisputed King of New Orleans and all that want to live in his world. Mount had delivered the shocking news that he held the note from her ex for $500,000 and if she did not want to pay back the debt with her "willing" body... then he would take over her 4th Generation Whiskey business worth much, much more than that figure. Losing the business would kill her father, as she had taken over running the business in order for him to have less stress in his life with her mom.Did she want to agree to Mount's unusual terms...NoBut she had to save her company so submit she did and....Boy, oh Boy, did her body betray her mind of not wishing to have anything to do with Mount...Every single time they are together...things are off the chain...So now we are aware both of these two have chemistry off the wall and Mount is annoyed that Keira is distracting him from his usual way of doing business... She is not like anyone he has ever been with...and he is fighting her pull. We are aware of so much more in this entry.

    *LIVE!'Defiant Queen,' is the second in the Mount Trilogy and Meghan March did not disappoint in any way. It's a powerhouse of a middle part to this very, very SEXY and dynamic series. Very pacey, moving forwards with fluidity and an engaging plot that richly develops revealing the layers of the story and characters so well. We learn more about our male domineering protagonist, Mount, and the history that has shaped his characterization which felt totally enlightening to me and, in terms of motivation, validated his behaviors absolutely perfectly. I will share more review thoughts tomorrow but meanwhile I had to note down that this second part of the trilogy is smoking hot and totally mesmerizing, erotic and fantastic. Escapism into a fictional world that whisked me away with ease making it a must-read-right-now-series! #oneclick--> http://bit.ly/2gmYw5dStart the series here--> amzn.to/2x1df8NamznAdvance copy provided for my honest review thoughts *

    I skimmed it. After reading book 1, I was so excited to jump straight to the second book to find out more about what is going to happen between Lachlan and Keira. But what I found out disappointed me. In book 1, there seem to be lacking something. Like, the connection between the two was not really there despite the banging as hell sex scenes and sexual attraction and what not. So going into the second book, I was expecting the author to explore and exploit more on the emotional part of things instead of just physical. But that doesn't seem to be happening as they continue to have banging sex and Keira continues to defy him and he continues to get amused by her reactions. It feels like there is literally no change at all from book one to book two (?) So yeah. This book kind of fell flat. I had high expectations for this one seeing how I have been waiting for the whole series to be published before I start reading and all the 5 stars rating that was given for this book. But yeah, this book actually turned out to be a fluffier and lighter read that focuses more on sex scenes that emotional connection. If that is what you are looking for, then definitely do give it a try as I think you might really enjoy it For more of my review, click : here

    So we are finally starting to see more emotion from these two. We get a lot more inside Lachlan Mount’s head which was lacking for me in the first book. Keira’s reluctance, while understandable is getting on my nerves lol. She needs to start seeing Lachlan’s actions more clearly imo. Onto the third book where I’m hoping these two start being more honest with not only each other but themselves about what they really want.

    And this is why I have always loved all things Meghan March! Man, she made me feel alive! Defiant Queen blew me away! The sexual tension was so high. Holy-fucking-scorching the sex scenes!! It wasn't just titillating and tantalizing, it was to the zenith! If I was at the cusp of my orgasm with Ruthless King, Defiant Queen was the BEST ORGASM! And Lachlan Mount! Fuck me! This anti-hero's gonna be the death of me.Gah! Defiant Queen just escalated my obsession for this trilogy. It can't be stopped. I am already addicted to it. It's all over in my system I'm craving it like my next fix. Lawd! The Prologue hit my heart so hard. Having a glimpse of Mount's past that somehow made him what and who he is today broke my heart, yet as I go on with my reading I could not help my heart from pounding. I love the broken him as much as I love the ruthless, fearless and the dark side of him. I was intrigued to no end. With every turn of the pages, I was in the edge, my adrenaline rush kept on pumping. I could not stop reading. I breathed it, inhaled it and savored it and yet I am still craving it. Addicted is an understatement for what I have with Defiant Queen, because what I am feeling now, it is more than that.And I am not just taking about Lachlan Mount and Kiera Kilgore here. All bets are off when it came to these two. What they have been more than just strong chemistry. They're just perfect for each other. Call me twisted and fucked up, but these two fitted just perfectly. Keira is one lucky bitch for having Mount. Her defiance? Now, that's what you need to find out in this second installment. It's what made this book more appealing. See for yourself how our "Defiant Queen" faired with the controlling, ruthless Lachlan Mount. Find out how they scored up in this game of power struggle. Who really has the upper hand? Is it the dominating Mount or the feisty Keira Kilgore? Because Defiant Queen is more than what it seems to be. It had me on my knees begging for more. Meghan March had a mission, for whatever it is, she slayed it with perfection.Overall, I highly recommend this book. As always, it was amazingly written and had that magnetic pull towards her lines that kept on stronger as you flip on the pages. I love this book to death! It was raw and packed full of scorching deliciousness sprinkled with twists and turns that had my jaw dropped and my heart in constant speed of anticipation. Meghan March has a way with words that just reels you in, swallows you whole then spits you out. I could not put it down and finished it in one sitting. She made my inner imp stronger. And now, the waiting just begun! Sinful Empire, you're next!

    This is book 2 in this series that follows the growing relationship between the ruthless bad boy alpha Lockland Mount and seven sins distillery owner Keira Kilgore. I loved this book but kicked myself severely when it left me with a cliffhanger and a wait for the next book for a conclusion. This series is very dark and dirty but underneath the criminal activities is another story of trust, need and love that neither characters expected but how can a relationship survive in Mounts world?
