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.
“What the what! 4 stars”
Okay, to be completely transparent I didn’t know how to feel when I found out Creole Kingpin’s hero was Moses. To me Moses was a bad guy, because he was in the Legend Trilogy and I just got over that book slump like yesterday. So, I kind of dragged my feet when it came to cracking open Creole Kingpin. I didn’t trust myself to put my judgement into a box and on a shelf.
Then I did and holy guacamole! First off who cares about Moses, this is Magnolia’s show and she is one BA woman. I loved everything about her. She doesn’t need or want a man. Magnolia is perfectly fine doing life on her own, until a ghost from her past, the ultimate anti-hero shows back up, Moses. She loved him hard at one time even if it was short lived. Now that he’s back she’s strengthening up those bars on her heart because she refuses to let him in again.
But you know what they say, best laid plans and all that jazz. One thing is for sure, I cannot wait to see where March takes us with book 2.

Creole Kingpin is book 1 in the Magnolia Duet, we have previously met Mags several times in previous March books.
Magnolia is finally stepping away from life she has been living for the past 15 years; when a meeting with Mount brings a ghost from her past back into her life, she is determined to prove that she is the strong independent woman that needs no man; but you can only put up that fight for so long.
I struggled with this story, the Anti-hero was still raw for me and I wanted to see the good in him but could only see what his actions 15 years ago were. I am looking forward to Madam Temptress to see what twist March has in store for us and the Anti-hero to redeem himself.
