The Mount Trilogy continues with Defiant Queen...
I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt. I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment? They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body. But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy. I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules. I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact. But he has other plans . . .
Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire.
Defiant Queen is the second book in the Mount Trilogy, and it pretty much sets off after book one. So I was really intrigued to see what Meghan March would give us in book two and how she would end it. Thankfully, I had prepared myself for a crazy cliffhanger and so I was kinda ready for anything but still, all the preparedness in the world would never have prepared me for what Meghan March did to my emotions in this book. Now I will warn you all that this book isn’t for everyone. It has a darker theme and deals with a big anti-hero so it’s not easy to read at times. And even though I don’t love the hero yet, I am starting to see some redeemable qualities to him. The heroine, however, I just love. She isn’t afraid of Mount in the way that everyone else is. Its like on some inner level she knows no matter what he won’t harm her physically or her family or those she cares about. There is quite a bit of HOT and STEAMINESS in this story. So watch out because its hot enough to steam the windows…literally. I did like seeing more depths to Mount’s character though and more emotional depth to their relationship as a whole. We start to see Mount come to terms with how much he cares for Keira. He is slowly starting to stop fighting his feelings for her and accept it as it is.
I see Keira Kilgore exactly for what she’s becoming – the one woman who might be strong enough to stand by my side and rule an empire
And the ways that he supports her in her dreams and hopes for the future especially in her distillery business. We definitely have a chance to see a new side to Mount that I have come to love this side although we don’t this more kind and understanding side of him as often as I want but hopefully book three will have more of that. I can’t wait for book three because the way this book ended made me wish that I had waited to read these books until December…oh well….damage is done and now I will be counting down the days until book three’s release. Meghan March has written a highly erotic and stunningly emotionally riveted romance that pulled me in like a magnet!! SIMPLY BREATHTAKING!!
