Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great start but only half a book!"

    Dark story line but gripping non the less. Got me totally hooked from the beginning. Only problem is this is only half a story. No cliffhanger finish. Just ends part way through the story. Be prepared to purchase the whole set to listen to the end. So disappointing when authors do this ugh.

    "What an ending!"


    FIRST what an ending!! That was theme tune worthy, my jaw dropped i can tell you.
    Can not wait to get the next one, good job there isn't long to wait.

    I love Mount. I know I shouldn't, he is a bad man, it is fiction, so I do.

    Meghan wrote the bejesus out of these characters and this book has set the tone for a firey, gritty and explosive next in the series.

    I was gutted it ended so quickly, I could have done with so much more..........bring on November. The narrators did a fantastic job with these characters, will be listening to the next one too.

    "I’m hooked on Mount"

    Just......Awesome! I love Meghan March, I don’t think she’s ever let me down, I can’t get enough of her stories. Alpha males at the very ready best. She pushes boundaries to the very limits and I love her for it. A light dark read with the ultimate, I want to say bad boy, but I think that would be understating Lachlan Mount, he most definitely is, Ruthless! Keira Kilgore however, is more than able to stand up for herself (what an amazing adversary). Mounts dominance, Kiera’s willingness to bow down in the most intimate of scenarios and it’s a match made in heaven, or hell, depending on how you view those sparks. She’ll never bend to his will though, and it would seem, he loves the challenge. I have a feeling though that there will be a few twists, turns and some unexpected reveals by the end of this series. Fantastic narration by both Grace Grant and Joe Arden. Just perfect. Book 2 here I come.

    "This blew me away!"

    I loved every minute of this book, it kept me up all night listening to it.
    Now I have to wait for the next two in the series. The only complaint I have is there was not enough from Joe Arden, a really sexy voice.
    Grace Jones as brilliant as always.

    "Sadly not her usual standard"

    I am usually a fan of Meghans books but this was definitely not a favourite, you don’t get any knowledge of Mount just that he is a hard ruthless man.
    all the book relates is sex where’s the story yes she is repaying a debt but I was really expecting a lot more , don’t get me wrong I love a good sex scene as much as the next but that’s all the book is ...
    Grace Grant is monosyllabic.... and hardly any Joe Arden which says there nothing Of Mount .

    Story
    "This made me angry and didn’t really end - have to buy next in series to find out conclusion"

    Book ends on a cliffhanger and definitely not s standalone book. However, although that is annoying about this book that’s not what angers me. Mount coerces her to have sex with him to pay off her deceased’s husbands debt and threatens if she doesn’t people she cares for will die. He torments her sexually but still not by choice and when she is on the brink of being defeated and screams for him to just do it (e.g., to get it over with and get her release) Mount thinks he’s not raping her because she begs for it. The fact that he kidnaps her and controls her every move doesn’t occur to him as being abusive. Then she is slowly missing him even though she can’t stand him. I’m angered at the book implying a woman isnt raped if she eventually enjoys the sex act after being kidnapped and forced to do things she would never had agreed to. I’m angered at the message this sends to male readers permitting them to take what they want because she will eventually like it. I’ve enjoyed other books this author has written but this one feels like it has crossed the line from control to downright abuse but finding ways to justify this abuse. Also, Mount’s voice sounded weak for the character he was playing.

    "Great story narration Could use some work"

    I enjoyed the story but the when the female narrator tried to do the Lachlan's voice she often made him sound like he was mentally slow. Unfortunately there was a enough dialogue that it was distracting and made listening less enjoyable.

    "Not my fav.."

    I normally love Meghan March but this story was off for me. I really disliked the Narration. I didn't connect to the female lead at all, Mount is weird, and I don't think that the whole captive thing is a turn on. It's one thing to have an alpha, it's a whole other thing to have a psychopath threatening everyone you love unless you... Comply with every demand? Not hot. Horrible narration didn't help. What ever happened to attraction, happenstance, teamwork to bring people together? Why all this twisted love hate and weaponized masculinity?

    "Really great!!"


    I am a big fan of this writer, and the Mount trilogy doesn't let me down. I seriously don't know how to wait for the last part, and suspect that Meghan Marsh has an evil side that likes torturing her readers with the suspense. Luckily part three is released on my birthday, and oh what a glorious day it will be.

    "✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫"

    Meghan March is an auto buy for me always and she didn't disappoint with this book. I will say this book felt very angry for the most part though, I was hoping at some point these characters would be a little less volatile toward each other but I do see it coming in part 2!

    Mount comes across as a ruthless, angry, demanding man but honestly I felt his softer side a lot more than I felt hers. You can see he is obviously protecting himself from her. Keira is protesting a little too much I think. She is obviously into him but she can't let even a sliver of that show. He is forcing her to be in his life and she is pushing back every second of the way. The sex was hot and the "ending" has a twist.

    I know I sound like a broken record with this comment but I would love to just get the whole book in 1 piece instead of cutting it in half and releasing it as 2 books. I understand when this is done because the book is too long but this is not even 6 hours. I personally would rather wait for a little longer and get a full story but that is just me. Not that this stops me from buying two 1/2 books every time a Meghan March book is released ;)

    The narration was good, I haven't heard Grace Grant in awhile and I enjoy her work. Joe Arden was a tease in this book since he only had a few small chapters but they were great.

    "Disappointing narration! Blown away by the story."

    Loved the storyline! Struggled listening till the very end. While I enjoyed the very few chapters of real male narration, I really hated the faked one, which by the way was to freaking much!

    Don't take me wrong, female narration was great, however when it comes to pretending to be other characters, especially the main male character is what killed it for me!

    Thank God for authors that delivered best quality for their fans and have done real dual narration instead of what I got here.

    I'm freaking loving this series to much, so my next installment it'll be just read. No more audio for me!! This is just my personal opinion!!

    Joe Arden was barely on this audiobook and was magnificent, for what I felt cheated.

    "Great story by Meghan March, as usual"

    As usual Meghan March comes through with this romantic/suspense. This first book sets the foundation for a great continuing story. This story kept my attention from beginning to end. Meghan weaves a very detailed story that sucks you in and doesn't let got. The narrators were excellent. Great team for this effort.

    "Engaging read "

    I'm a fan of Meaghan March books, not so much of the cliffhangers. She successfully writes about complex alpha men who surprisingly fall for strong, dynamic heroines, and the lengths they will go for their love. Good formula!

    "I shouldn't like this book, but I do!!!"

    Meghan March does it again! There isn't a book that I have read of hers that I haven't loved. I want Mounts back story and I want them together. There were times a hated Mount, but I could tell deep down he really does love Keira. It ended too fast and the twist at the end just has me wanting to read more! Off to read the second book!
