The thing about ghosts is they’re supposed to stay dead.
That’s exactly what I am, but I can’t stay away from Magnolia Marie Maison for one more day, let alone another year.
We’ve already got fifteen of those between us.
As it stands, ...more
In Creole Kingpin we are once again transported to New Orleans and the underworld ruled by Lachlan Mount. Now we get the story of Magnolia Maison, a woman known for her beauty and no nonsense reputation.
Badass is tame in describing Magnolia. She is the most fiercest heroine I have ever read. She walks the walk and talks the talk. Not afraid of anything she makes her way into transitioning away from being the most famous madam of New Orleans. Just as she is starting to see her plans ...more
This book was terrific, a five star book if I have ever read one. It has a former hooker with a heart, turned madam, now gone legitimate. A former gangster who wanted to be a kingpin until is life changed in ways he never could have predicted. A love that began in the midst of a hurricane and blew out of town just as fast but left both parties as wrecked as the city.
Fifteen years later Moses Gaspard blows back into New Orleans to tear ...more
Moses nearly broke me once. I won’t let him do it again.
I CANNOT EVEN RIGHT NOW. I SERIOUSLY CANNOT EVEN. This was...and I just...and all of it was...GAHHHHHH!!!!!!
This has been easily both my most anticipated and favorite Meghan March book to date. And having read the woman's entire backlist, that's saying something. Not only do we get the infamous madam's story that we first met in Ruthless King, but we also get the most sinful anti-hero that was introduced in The Fall of Le ...more
Creole Kingpin leaves you with ALL THE FEELS. I’m not lying when I say it will captivate your emotions. This book packs drama, humor, heartbreak, twists and turns, swoon worthy moments, HOT & steamy scenes, and a hottie Anti-her ...more
Meghan March has once again dangled us with a series that will no doubt have us begging for more!! In a underground world of sex lies and secrets, things are bound to be dangerous and when you add in the fact that a lost love has returned but with more questions than you ever imagined of asking, this story definitely made an interesting read.
Magnolia has done a lot of things that she hasn’t been proud of. For the past fifteen years she has gone from being an escort to a well known Madame and now ...more
the more i love a book cover, the higher the probability that i'm going to end up disappointed. this world is so cruel to me.
we have a badass heroine who doesn't take shit from anyone and an anti-hero. i eat that shit up. i live for power couples who could take on world domination, but Magnolia and Moses didn't do anything for me.
Moses or Moby how Magnolia calls him is the most boring anti-hero. after disappearing 15 years ago, he comes back to New Orleans to claim back ...more
This was a sweet second chance story in Meghan's March universe. It was a bit too tame, too polite and too
"I know you like to dance with the devil, but watch yourself, girl. He always demands his due.”
Moses Gaspard left New Orleans a decade and a half ago after Hurricane Katrina and never looked back. Never called. Never wrote. Never kept the promises he made to Magnolia, to come back for her. After 15 years he is back and makes his intentions clear that he wants her by his ...more
Not so excited with this story.
Having read M. March’s previous series taking place in New Orleans, I expected this new release to be something different and fresh - which was not!
Although Magnolia had a very interesting character, Moses might have had epic lines and acted as a great Hero, but in the end he didn’t touch my heart.
I would have liked a better development of their romance, it was almost flat and emotionless.
Lachlan Mount (Mount trilogy) is by far my favorite anti-hero c ...more
This was my very first book by Meghan March and I must say her writing style captured me right from the beginning. The way she grows her characters through an enchanting and thrilling story is what I love most about this book. However, I really wished I had read the Mount Trilogy before. At the beginning I had a little trouble following this already established world. And my biggest problem with Magnolia and Moses was, that I couldn't feel their chemistry, their attraction. I knew it wa ...more
1. Magnolia is gangsta and I’m about that life!!
2. Meghan March knows how to do a cliffy. I was hanging off the edge of my seat at the end of this book yelling NOOOOOO WAYYYYYYY!
I’m off to read book two, but I’ll circle back soon to tell you all about this one in a day or two. Getting my binge read on - BRB
Magnolia and Moses were characters with questionable reputations and persons may consider the ...more
If you read Meghan's previous trilogies, Mount Trilogy and Legend Trilogy, then you would have met both Magnolia and Moses (Magnolia in Mount Trilogy and Moses in Legend Trilogy). However, you do not need to read either of those to understand their story and truly get to know who they are. Meghan tells their story hauntingly beautiful in this book and ...more
I received an ARC of this book and I am voluntarily leaving a review.
My opinion is now officially changed!!! She is a Bad A** heroine who takes no prisoners yet has a heart of gold! She is amazing!
Moses, whom we met in the Legend Trilogy, well he was portrayed as someone who is completely unrede ...more
5 In Love with the Heroine Crowns
This is quintessential Meghan March - suspense, fierce heroine, fantastic ending , and I couldn’t have been in love with Magnolia and her story.
Normally, I fall in love with the he heroes and like the heroines, but Magnolia stole the show. I love every single thing about her. From her lack of apology for her profession to her fierce independence, she epitomizes everything I love in a female lead.
Moses was a great hero. What I loved most abo ...more
⭐️ 5 "No Damsel In Distress" Stars ⭐️
The Magnolia Duet was a highly anticipated series for me and it definitely started strong with Creole Kingpin! Meghan March promised a badass heroine and that’s exactly what she delivered in Magnolia Maison. That woman is so fierce and fearless! The power she oozes is something very enticing! Her connection with Moses is intense to say the least. She’s been burned by his love fifteen years earlier and she’s still bitter over it. She tries to stay cold in ...more
Magnolia and Moses have a past. A rocky past. 15 years later she most certainly did not forget and forgive, but that does not mean Moses wasn’t going to try like hell to get her back. I admit writing this review is hard because I don’t want to g ...more
And i am só glad i did!
Because Creole Kingpin hit me,really hard!
And with that cliffy,i knów i need closure soon.....before it drives me crazy!
I’ve met Magnolia in Keira’ and Mount’s story,and i love the kind of woman she is.
Tough,independent,but with a caring heart.
A Madam,yes. But one that takes good care of her girls,and bewa ...more
It has been a while since I've read Meghan March's books, but damn it feel like It was just yesterday.
I have been let's say fascinated by Magnolia since I've read Mount Trilogy Series and boy do I love that woman.
Magnolia Mason is one of the fiercest heroines I've ever read. She experienced a lot in her life to be as strong as she is, she is her own boss. When she is finally ready to leave her old life, a ghost from her past comes and disturbs her peace.
Moses Gaspard co ...more
"Do I look like a damsel in distress to you? No one has ever mistaken me for Snow fucking White."
This is a love story like no other.....take a fiery, badass, confident heroine (Meghan's best yet), a sexy as fuck, silver tongued swoon-worthy anti-hero and what do you get, your next ADDICTION! Magnolia and Moses are sexy as hell, explosive and ...more
“Change is coming whether you want it or not. I know you like to dance with the devil, but watch yourself, girl. He always demands his due.”
“Brace yourself, Magnolia. Another hurricane is coming.”
“Once and for all, the winds of change are at my back and guiding me home. Guiding me to the future. Guiding me to her.”
I don’t know about you guys, but I have been dying and I mean dying for Magnolia to have her story told. And let me tell you, Meghan March does not ...more
I was hoping, dreaming and praying for Magnolia’s book since the Ruthless King, because she was so fascinating. And now when my dream came true I want to track Meghan March down and hug the *ekhm* out of her, because Creole Kingpin is flipping amazing! This second chance story exceeded all of my expectations and I’m fangirling so hard right now. Magnolia Maison is Meghan’s best ...more
I honestly didn’t know what to expect with Creole Kingpin, the first installment of the Magnolia Duet, but Meghan March, as per usual, kept me guessing at every turn! The storyline was riveting, even though it wasn’t super fast-paced, and I loved the characters, especially getting to see some familiar faces again. Magnolia Maison and Moses Gaspard were quite the pair, and I thought they were perfect together. I really enjoyed the first part of their sexy and suspenseful story, and I ...more
***PLEASE NOTE: The Magnolia duet is an interconnected duet that can be read on its own, but is better enjoyed after reading both the Mount and the Savage series.
Meghan March is one of the authors that reignited my love for reading......before I discovered GRs or switched to Kindle, the days of Google Books and no idea of ju ...more
