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*

Ruthless king is the first book in a new dark trilogy by Meghan March. I can’t say much about the plot because pretty much everything is a spoiler. Let's just say that when the king of New Orleans wants something he is going to get it. He is an evil person and he manages to find a way to get Keira without giving her a choice. When you own Mount you have to pay the debt. Keira is a feisty and sassy widow who owns a whiskey-making business. One day Mount appears and proves that her ex-husband owns him money and he is there to collect. Keira doesn't have a choice but to do what he says because Mount is a dangerous man with a lot of power.
The book is mostly told from Keira's point of view. Mount graces us with his thoughts, but not much. I am hoping to fix that in the second book and see what is in his mind. I want to see him fall for Keira. Another thing I am hoping to see in the second book is an even sassier Keira. They have a great chemistry together and they made the book a very enjoyable read. I loved the book. The cliffhanger, in the end, makes me wanna find the author and force her to give me the second book right now. I don't wanna know how the second book will end.
Sometimes I felt like the book was going to cross a line, but it never did. It's much darker than the other books the author has written but she has done a great job and in the end, I had no complaints and problems with it. It's a definite recommendation.
Meghan March has been known to wear camo face paint and tromp around in woods wearing mud-covered boots, all while sporting a perfect manicure. She's also impulsive, easily entertained, and absolutely unapologetic about the fact that she loves to read and write smut. Her past lives include slinging auto parts, selling lingerie, making custom jewelry, and practicing corporate law. Writing books about dirty talking alpha males and the strong, sassy women who bring them to their knees is by far the most fabulous job she's ever had. She loves hearing from her readers at email@example.com.
