REVIEW – RUTHLESS KING (Mount Trilogy, #1) by Meghan March


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 1 of the Mount Trilogy. Mount and Keira’s story is anticipated to be completed in Fall 2017 with Defiant Queen and Sinful Empire.*

I feel his touch like it’s bathed in fire, a scorching trail in its wake.



I’ve read plenty of Meghan March’s books and this has got to be ”Hands Down” the dirtiest and steamiest story she has written! I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a winner with me since we get just the tiniest glimpse of the hero, Lachlan Mount, during the prologue and then he doesn’t return until about the 30% mark in the story. I didn’t think that the heroine’s storyline was enough to keep the book entertaining but then BAM, MOUNT comes charging through the story at full force, demanding attention, and then there wasn’t any doubt that this was going to be one ”OFF THE CHARTS” AMAZING story. If you like a really good enemies-to-lovers romance, well then you need to get your hands on this one. The chemistry between Mount and Keira is INSANELY HOT!!


Keira Kilgore is the owner of Seven Sinners Distillery, New Orlean’s most famous Irish whiskey producers. The family business, which had been successful for the past four generations is now in jeopardy of being bought out by one of New Orleans’ most notorious and feared businessmen, Lachlan Mount. People are known to show up dead once they’ve attempted to cross him. Keira finds out that her late husband owed a huge sum of money to Mount and had the balls to put her family’s business up as collateral. But Mount has an indecent proposal for Keira that will ensure she keeps ownership of seven sinners—she must be his “plaything” for however long she holds his interest. This enrages her and messes with her pride beyond reason. She’s the typical fiery redhead with a bad temper and she will not make it easy for Mount to tame her, but what she doesn’t know is that she is no match for the sinfully sexy Alpha. She turns him on like no other woman has before and Keira will soon learn that Mount will own her body like it was made for him.


The sex is wildly erotic between them and underneath all the heated hostility, there is a hint of a buildup to a deeper connection for Mount and Keira. I loved everything about the dangerous and elusive Lachlan. His need to be dominant in all things is definitely a trait that I most desire in a book boyfriend.



Be prepared for some huge and unexpected twists when you reach the end of this first installment of ”The Mount Trilogy”! I am on pins and needles to see what Meghan March has in store for us next in ”Defiant Queen”!

Here are my overall ratings on the book:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 3.5
Plot: 4
Angst: 3
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

RUTHLESS KING releases tomorrow! Meghan March fans and those who have never had the opportunity to read one of her books are sure to enjoy this one! It’s a definite one-click!
