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.

Every 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.

‘DEFIANT QUEEN:’ is the second book of the Mount Trilogy by Meghan March and picks up right where Ruthless King left 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.

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 doe

The King of NOLA and his Whiskey Queen!

We all know that New Orleans is a city full of tough people. The people there are hearty and have lived through a lot! They have had hurricanes, even before Katrina, they have had rumors of Vampires even before Anne Rice, they have witches, Voodoo, Santaria, haunted cemeteries and pick pockets and all sorts of crime during Mardi Gras.

But the real underworld of New Orleans is run by the King, Lachlan Mount. Nobody does business in the city without his say.

This is the second book in the trilogy and I found that for me it was slow starting. I think it was mainly because I had read the first book back in November so it took me some time to remember the little details. Usually this is why I try to wait until a whole trilogy is out before I read it!! My memory isn’t what it used to be!! Plus I read so many books, I tend to mix some up etc..!!

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.

We'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.

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

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

Now that I’ve finished... oh boy. This is probably the butt pluggiest book I’ve ever read. At least half of these overpriced chapters has a butt plug mentioned in them. And if that’s your thing then good for you. For me, it is neither hot nor sexy. Just... Ew. Not my cup of tea, sorry.

Mount is still a one dimensional alpha dude who doesn’t know the word “no” if it slapped him in the face, and neither does Keira because she keeps mouthing off to prove she has a backbone (somewhere, but she keeps

Defiant 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!

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? N

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.

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!

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...

Amazon US * Amazon UK

Defiant 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.

Defiant 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 lead

Why have I not picked up Meghan March before??!!

This storyline had me on the edge of my seat! Savoring every word like it was my favorite dark chocolate. March is beyond talented in weaving a story!

Picking up where book 1 left off the relationship continues to evolve between Keira and Mount. Mount has sought unsolicited advice on how to properly "woo" a strong, independent woman. We see as they progress Mount truly deeply loves Keira, however all his dominance in the beginning may prove to forev

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 li

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.

Meghan 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.

Must read book 1. This book picks up with a little background for Mount and then dives right in where the cliffhanger from book 1 left the reader dangling.

'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 moti

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.

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 i
