Defiant Queen by Meghan March
My rating: 5 of 5 stars.
The King of NOLA and his Whiskey Queen!
We all know that New Orleans is a tough city. There 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. Not the Cartels, the Gangs, the Mafia, the Feds, The Cops, and certainly not some low level con man that came to town and married Kiera Kilgore right out from under his nose.
Mount took care of that problem once but Brett didn’t stay dead so in this book Lachlan gets his chance to take care of Brett in a more permanent way. This book is every bit as good, if not better than Ruthless King. Kiera still continues to fight Mount at every turn because she doesn’t want to be owned by any man. Mount knows that Kiera is submissive and doesn’t see the problem.
I guess he just can’t see the difference between being dominant in the bedroom and taking control of Kiera’s whole life. But in reality he loves that she stands up to him and would be bored with her if she just gave in and let him push her around. That is what makes it so good. For the reader as well as for Mount and Kiera.
This book ends in a huge cliffhanger, which has to do with some other storylines that come up in the book but I don’t want to give too much away. I will say that the romance is just as steamy as the first book. There are multiple storylines, and they are all very interesting and involved, so it definitely is holding my interest and I can’t wait to find out what happens next!
