New York Times bestselling author Meghan March goes back to New Orleans and the world of Lachlan Mount with a dangerous and bold new anti-hero.
The thing about ghosts is they’re supposed to stay dead.
That’s exactly what I am, but I can’t stay away from Magnolia Marie Maison for one more day, let alone another year.
We’ve already got fifteen of those between us.
As it stands, she’ll want to kill me as soon as she lays eyes on me. And knowing her, she’s completely up to the task.
But I’m a man on a mission, and I’ve got everything riding on this.
So, here I come, Magnolia. This ghost is ready for whatever you got.
After all, there’s only one way I want this to end—’til death do us part.

Creole Kingpin by Meghan March was a brilliant, fast-paced read that had me eagerly flipping the pages. I knew going into this book that I would be in for one heck of a ride, and March did not disappoint. This journey proved more intense than her Legend Trilogy. Her ability to create relatable and likable characters be they good or bad and a captivating and realistic story will have fans eager for more.
Magnolia and Moses were characters with questionable reputations and persons may consider them irredeemable. After meeting Moses in the Legend Trilogy and learning, he would be the hero/anti-hero of this book, I kept wondering if my feelings towards him would change. He had grown on me, but he had secrets, which made me wary. I loved his protective nature when towards Magnolia and besides, any man willing to die for the woman he loves can’t be all that bad.
I admired Magnolia, faults and all. Here we have a woman who clawed her way from the slums of New Orleans to make a name for herself as the most infamous madam of New Orleans. Tough and kick ass, she takes flak from no one, especially Moses who had been absent from her life for the past fifteen years.
The sexual tension between these two sizzled and burned. Fifteen years apart did nothing to douse the flames of their desire for each other. If anything, it made it burn hotter than ever.
This story had its share of mystery, suspense, drama, angst, humour and swoon worthy moments, which when combined provided an unputdownable read.
Now all familiar with the author’s work, knows her penchant for shocking cliff-hangers, which leaves her readers champing at the bit for more. Well, Creole Kingpin was no different. The cliff-hanger did not produce the shocking effect I expected, but it sure left me wanting more of Moses and Magnolia’s world.
Overall, Creole Kingpin was an amazing read which I would recommend to fans of the author and to readers who have never read her books.
