~REVIEW🖋~
The Quick and Dirty: Holy HOTNESS batman!! 🔥🔥🔥 Alpha + Alpha = maximum chemistry! The badass anti-heroine that is Magnolia Maison is back with her own duet that is going to leave you begging for more! 

Moses Buford Gaspard, who we met in the Legend Trilogy is back in New Orleans and he is there for one reason, and one reason only: Magnolia. Magnolia’s just sold her brothel and is going legit, finally getting her life where she wants it when the hurricane that is Moses comes into town, turning her life upside down and unearthing ghosts (and insecurities) that she would have wanted to leave buried. An unexpected complication that leaves Magnolia vulnerable brings the two of them together, but will Moses’ secret tear them back apart?

I am OBSESSED. Beyond the fact that NOLA is one of my favorite cities, I absolutely love these two anti-heroes together. I totally speculated on my blog that these two would end up together (“Who better for [Magnolia] to fall for than a man who plays but the rules only about as often as she does, which is to say not often at all.”) but holy crap, I couldn’t ever have imagined how 🔥🔥🔥 they would be together! I’ve always fan-girled over Meghan March’s work, but I think this is her best yet. The world she’s built is complex and beautiful and the cast of characters as compelling as they are perfectly flawed. They’re relatable and you can’t help but root for them. I am absolutely obsessed with Magnolia and Moses and I cannot WAIT to see how the cliffhanger from this book resolves!

Share! What do you think is going to happen next in the MMarchverse?

~BLURB~
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 is the first book in the Magnolia Duet. Magnolia’s story concludes in Madam Temptress.
