Summary

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....

Fantastic!

Omg! That cliffhanger! I’m so glad this series is complete so I could start the next book immediately. The storyline is brilliant and so exciting as the feisty Keira continues to push Lachlan’s buttons. I loved it!

A captivating read!

I listened to the audio version and this book is still a +5 stars re-read for me. The narration was fantastic and perfectly executed by Grace Grant and Joe Arden!.


"I was a fool thinking I could take her, fuck her, and keep her in a little box on a shelf like any other toy."

This amazing author worked her magic once again to deliver another mind-blowing read in the Mount Trilogy. Ruthless King rocked my world and the second installment Defiant Queen, took me to a new level of intense ride. Loved it with passion and couldn’t put it down. Difficult to talk about it without giving anything away. Just know this book has it all. Great storyline, action, secrets, romance, passion and freakin' hot sex scenes - like seriously scorching HOT. Keira and Lachlan are incredible characters and their story is perfectly told. Kayla is strong and sassy and my favorite type of heroines. I enjoyed watching her give Mount as good as he gave. We do get to see some of Mount’s past and it was good to have an insight into what made the infamous Lachlan Mount the man he is today. He’s captivating, I loved him. I enjoyed that this powerful and dangerous man hadn’t factored into his twisted plans the beautiful, passionate and determined woman that will thwart all his plans and worm her way into his heart. I don't think I'll ever get bored of reading about him! And the ending left me in utter chaos and I am now anxiously and impatiently awaiting the final book in the series.

"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."

Really? Another cliffhanger....

A wonderful story ruined by a serious cliffhanger. I am enjoying how this relationship is developing but am seriously aggrieved by the ending.

5 Hellion Stars

Kaboom! No words! This is the reason that I wait until all the books are out in a series/trilogy, and right now, I’m so so happy I waited. With an ending like this one, I’m not sure I’m gong to be able to sleep tonight, I need answers now! I just love love love Lachlan Mount, the ultimate bad boy (we’re talking really really bad), and a true alpha male with a need to dominate in the dirtiest of ways. In book 2 however, we do see a slightly softer side to him as he spends more and more time with Keira and it endears me to him even more if that’s even possible. Keira
Kilgore remains as feisty and loveable as ever, not bending to his every demand. What a perfect power couple. I so need these two to get their happy ever after. Just so you know, I’ve already had a sneak at book 3, I have no patience, I’m going in right now. Narration is better than good, I couldn’t picture a more perfect duo for these two, thank you Grace Grant and Joe Arden.

Great book but why is it 3 books??

This is a wonderful book but I’m really tired of authors leaving cliffhangers and releasing the next book a month later. I’d rather you triple the price and do it all at once or charge 3 credits at once so we don’t have to wait.

Stop the multi-part publications

I’m sick of spending credits on 5 hour titles with cliffhangers. This is a classic March technique and it’s wearing very thin.

I hate cliff hangers

better than book one. but the cliff hanger crap pisses me soooooo off. Why not just make it all one book. this will make me shy away from trilogies. A nice heads up people.... Books should not end with cliff hangers. Finish the darn story!!!!!!!!!!

Truly wish this was 1 book or at the most 2

Waiting for and paying for a 3rd book that is one story is annoying and expensive. Enjoy the series of recognizable characters but not the breaking of one book into 3. Also at least more character development in this but hero is still very unsympathetic and heroine is a pretty whiney still. Female narrator is only so so.

Horrible narration

I am a bit of a literary snob but I have a little secret passion for Megan March’s books ;) I have listened to the all available Books. The first book in this series was irritating but hoped the second would get better. I’m actually halfway through and had to write you do now because it’s driving me absolutely bonkers listening to it because the narration is so awful!! I hate to be mean about the narration but she is not suited to this kind book and is beyond irritating. I have absolutely no empathy with the character and really don’t particular like her which Hasn’t happens before in MM’s books. They guy is ok but her version of his voice just at kills it for me. Such a shame.

Red Hot!!

One thing I love about Meghan March is that she has this certain way about the way she writes these characters and tells their stories that just suck you in. Defiant Queen was no different.
In this book we get to know more about Mount, where he came from, and how he got to be who he is. We also get to know more about the dynamic between Mount and Keira and finally get to see them understanding that dynamic themselves. I love the way that Keira gives Mount a run for his money, she pushes him and questions him, defies him, but I am really loving seeing her walls slowly coming down and her softening towards him. Bring on book 3!!!

Love the story! Joe Arden is fantastic and I wish he had more speaking parts. Still not a fan of Grace, but it was better than the first.
