Meghan March can write erotic romance like nobody else!
This book has a premise that has been done before though there are story differences of course. However, Meghan March just seems to do it a bit better. This is a little steamier, the story has a nicer flow or stronger female characters, all combined to make things so much more exiting and fun to read.
The main premise in this story is that Kiera Kilgore is trying to save her struggling family whiskey distillery after mistakenly marrying a con man who recently died and left her in debt. But just when she is starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel, she gets a visit from Lachlan Mount.
Mount is the “King of New Orleans”, make that the underworld of New Orleans. He has Cartels, Mafia, Gangs, Cops, Feds, DEA, and all kinds of officials that jump to his bidding when it comes to doing business in the city. Mount tells Kiera that her late husband took out a loan with him for half a million dollars and it comes due in one week. He will take her in payment if she can’t come up with the money, and he knows she can’t.
We, as readers, have seen this trope before where the billionaire gets the girl who is desperate for money or he says she owes him for something and will take her body as payment. He owns her, in effect, for a certain amount of time. In this case, the rumors about Mount are that if you don’t do what he wants, he will kill all your friends and family. Each day of the week before the loan comes due, he sends her pictures of her friends and family along with a note saying how many days are left.
Kiera doesn’t have the money so she has no options, but she fights Lachlan all the way and every chance she gets. She has red hair and a temper to match. Kiera hates the fact that she is attracted to Mount and that he knows exactly how to turn her body against her. This book is super steamy and off the charts hot. With a heat index of 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 out of 5 flames. The story is good and the struggles between the two are great. The ending is surprising and a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to start the next book!
