Get ready for the darker and dirtier side of New Orleans with a brand new alpha romance from USA Today bestselling author Meghan March.

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.

My Review

Where or where to begin with this review.  First off this book isn’t like anything that Meghan has written before.  All her books have always had a hero that you fall in love with almost immediately.  Lachlan Mount isn’t exactly a typical hero, but I will say that you find yourself falling for him just the same.

This series has a few surprises that will pop up, including some of the friendly characters from the Beneath series.  She hinted in several prior books about Lachlan’s existence and how nothing happens in NOLA without his approval or knowing.  It’s almost creepy to a point the way his operation works, however the other secrets, I’m sworn to secrecy on.  Those you must read the book in order to uncover.

Here is what I can tell you.  Keira is not a typical heroine.  She’s strong and she’s a take no crap kinda woman.  But when it comes to mind over body her body wins every time Mount calls to her.  They connect on a physical level and he reads her as a challenge.  Typically when people challenge him, they die.  But Keira intrigues him in a way no other woman has, and he will simply use her, till he’s bored.  What he doesn’t know is that Keira doesn’t plan to lay down and just take it till he’s done, she fights him at every turn, and it’s fun and almost scary to watch.  Many times through this first book, I was like shut up or you’re gonna die!  Which wouldn’t make much more story necessary, so in my mind I was sure he wouldn’t kill her, or well, maybe he would.  I wouldn’t ever dare to underestimate the King of the New Orleans Underground and neither should you!

That ending… GAH!  I was reading furiously and didn’t even realize I was at the end of book one… I both hate and love when you don’t realize it’s the end and you go to flip the page and there is NOTHING LEFT!

I truly love that Meghan is taking a new direction with her books in writing this series!  It shows growth and strength to create a new world and something different from the normal romance.  I have loved every series she has written and I cannot wait to see what’s to come in books 2 and 3… The solace is in knowing we don’t have long to wait!  Don’t hesitate to read this one now!  It’s truly worth reading and the wait will make that next part so much sweeter when it comes!  And don’t worry about the darkness of the book, it’s honestly not as bad as some other dark romances I have read.  Mount is more dirty in the bedroom then anything…. so far….
