Review: Madam Temptress by Meghan March (Magnolia #2)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.

The wait may not have been all that long, but when it’s as awaited a conclusion to a duology as Madam Temptress was, it felt like forever, yet Meghan March made it so darn worthwhile! This second Magnolia novel picks up where the first one, Creole Kingpin, left off, and while Moses Buford Gaspard may have amends to make and explanations to offer, Magnolia Marie Maison makes no apologies for the life she has led. In all the years they’ve been apart, they’ve lived very separate lives, but now that Moses is back, all he wants is for them to finally have their long lost opportunity to share their lives together. However, they’re going to have to figure out a way to outsmart and finally get rid of those who are hunting Magnolia.

There’s no dilly-dallying once this book starts. Yes, there’s the expected tension and suspense as well as the romance, but Meghan March doesn’t over-saturate Magnolia and Moses’s story with an unnecessary add-ons. Everything that needed to be resolved was done so to my utmost satisfaction, with all loose ends tied up. Naturally, I’m not going to give anything away, but I will remind you that you’re going to need to read Creole Kingpin before you venture into Madam Temptress. With both books out now, you also won’t need to worry about cliffhangers. While there are characters from March’s past series, the Magnolia duet can still be read on its own—although, I wouldn’t be surprised if your curiosity about these characters has you perusing the author’s back list. Do yourselves a favor: Read Madam Temptress ASAP. Five-plus stars. ♥
