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*
“Magnolia cuts me off. “You’re not going to die tonight, baby, I swear. Give that man what he doesn’t even know he wants–which is everything that’s you–and you’ll be just fine. Now, get going. Put the armor on and go slay yourself a dragon of a man.”
Kiera Kilgore is attempting to sustain her family’s whiskey business in a city where everything is ruled by Lachlan Mount. Mount is a man who rules the city of New Orleans, “Rule with fear, but gain respect through actions.” This man knows exactly how he wants things to run, and he makes it happen. Kiera finds herself caught up in his plans, but isn’t keen on staying a part of them.
Kiera is a woman who is independent, intelligent, and extremely outspoken. She runs her family’s company with an iron will. When she’s caught up into Mount’s plans, she is UNHAPPY. Although the man is … well, fine doesn’t even cover it, Kiera is a woman who does not want choices made for her. While her body is completely fine with being toyed with by Mount, her mind (and heart) aren’t quite sure.
Mount is someone not easily understood. His past is shrouded in mystery, and it seems he has no person that is truly close to him. When he begins his pursuits, he is pleasantly surprised by the independence in Kiera, but not so much happy about the fact that she sometimes goes a bit too far in her defiance.
Beyond the struggle between these two, lies a deeper seated intrigue that begins twisting around these two. This is the part that pulled me in. Although the attraction & situation of these two is exciting, what’s swirling around them is the type of story I live for. And, honestly, that’s about all I can tell you. There’s so much happening, that by giving away even one piece of this story … I’ll ruin it for you. Let me just say you need to trust that Meghan brings you a great story EVERY. TIME. And, personally, I cannot wait for the other installments of this trilogy!
