About ‘Ruthless King’ by Meghan March:

Get ready for the darker and dirtier side of New Orleans with a brand new alpha romance from USA Today bestselling author Meghan March.

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.

’Ruthless King’ by Meghan March review:

With everything going on on in the world right now, I wasn’t so sure if I would be in the mood for a bit of a darker romance. But I’m glad that I didn’t let that deter me from picking up Ruthless King by Meghan March because I was instantly hooked.

Lachlan is very much an alpha male/anti-hero. Despite his dominating personality, he’s become bored with everyone around him doing exactly what he wants. Which is why Keira’s fiery personality and refusal to be broken catches his attention.

Keira has faced a rough year, but despite that she hasn’t given up her dream of running the family distillery. She’s the first woman in her family to take on the role and she’s determined to make her parents proud.

“I will find a way to fix this. Somehow. Some way. I will” The silence in my office is the only answer I need. I don’t believe myself either. But I have to do something or I’m fucked. And, apparently, Lachlan Mount will be doing the fucking.”

But with so many hardships she’s had to face, Keira is broken to learn that there’s another debt against the business – one that she didn’t know about until it was past due.

Since Keira doesn’t have the money to pay back the debt, Lachlan offers up a way out of paying while still letting her keep her business afloat. It means going against her morals, but Keira is determined to keep her dignity and dreams.

Despite Keira’s initial hatred of Lachlan, there’s no denying that they have a blazing chemistry. Their back and forth made it clear that even though Keira may be backed into the corner in the situation, she’s still a strong and independent woman.

“My fingers curl into the lace-and-linen tablecloth as I try to hold on to some semblance of my sanity. How can I want this man? I hate him. But I’ve never craved anyone more.”

There’s also a fair amount of mystery, suspense, and danger in Ruthless King. The reader is till figuring out the extant of Lachlan’s power throughout the novel, and as each page went by you’ll want to learn even more about the enigmatic character.

The novel does end with a bit of a cliff hanger and I was so upset that there wasn’t more to read! I’m greedy for the next book in the trilogy to find out what happens next with Lachlan and Keira, especially with how things were left off!

Ruthless King by Meghan March will be released on October 17! Pre-order now from Amazon, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, or Kobo. And don’t forget to add it to your Goodreads!

Quentin Tarantino says he knew about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior: ‘I knew enough to do more than I did’

In a new interview with The New York Times, director Quentin Tarantino — whose films have largely been distributed by The Weinstein Company — admits he knew how Harvey Weinstein treated women.

Earlier this month The Times and The New Yorker published bombshell reports revealing horrific behavior by TWC founder Harvey Weinstein. The reports — and the revelations that came in the days after — rocked Hollywood.

Tarantino remained silent until Thursday’s interview. In it, he tells The Times he “knew enough to do more than I did.”

“It was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said, referencing the stories recently shared by “prominent” actresses.

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”

Tarantino admits that he can offer nothing but a “crappy” excuse at this point. Even though he heard stories about his business partner on multiple occasions, he “chalked it up to a ’50s-’60s era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk. As if that’s O.K. That’s the egg on my face right now.”

The director, whose most recent film The Hateful Eight was distributed by The Weinstein Company, says that he tried to reach out to the disgraced Hollywood mogul after the reports were published, but Weinstein didn’t pick up. More of Tarantino’s remarks can be read over on The Times’ website.

As more women share their stories, Hollywood is starting to take (some) action. Last week The Weinstein Company fired their founder, and The Academy voted to remove him from their ranks.

Explaining their vote to expel him, The Academy said in a statement, “We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over. What’s at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society.”
