AUDIO REVIEW: Savage Prince by Meghan March
Who knew things could get even darker and dirtier in New Orleans?
New York Times bestselling author Meghan March introduces the Savage Prince of the city, the man you never want to meet.
I do what I want and who I want. I don’t follow anyone’s rules—even my own.
I knew I shouldn’t touch her, but it didn’t stop me.
Didn’t stop me the second time either. Only made me want a third.
My lifestyle suits the savage I am, and she doesn’t.
But Temperance Ransom is my newest addiction, and I’m nowhere near ready to quit her yet.
I’ll have her my way, even if it means dragging her into the darkness.
Hopefully it doesn’t kill us both.
**Savage Prince is book one of the Savage Trilogy, set in the same world as Ruthless King, however you do not need to read the Mount Trilogy to devour this scandalously hot new story.

“That you, Temperance?”
My gaze searches the darkness, interrupted only by the Chinese lanterns and fairy lights hanging from the trees, until it lands on the red dragon emblazoned on the back of a black silk kimono, topped by a fluffy white head of hair.
Shit. My landlady.
“I’m so sorry to disturb you, Harriet. I’ll just—”
She spins around, spry for her advanced age. “Oh, girl, you’ve got sex hair. At least that makes one of us.”
I squeeze my eyes shut in humiliation. “I . . . uh . . . got—”
“Done up right by a real man, I’d say. About damn time, girl. I was starting to think you were a lost cause of all work and no play. Almost wondered if I’d have to find a new tenant to get some entertainment around here.”
I blink twice as she shuffles toward me, fluffy pink marabou slippers on her feet. “You were going to kick me out because I work too much?”
I knew my landlady was a little nutty, but I didn’t realize she was downright crazy.
“It would’ve been a last resort. I was going to send you a male stripper first. Girl, you need some fun in your life, and you do nothing but go between here and work. Boring as hell.”
Her point is finally sinking in, but part of me is still in shock. “I’m boring?”
“Of course you are. I swear, you go out of your way to stay that way too. But not tonight. Tonight, you look like you got dicked down by a real man.” She takes a seat at the outdoor patio table and reaches for a bottle of wine. “Here’s a glass. Now, sit down and consider part of your rent spilling the juicy details.”
Dumbstruck, I close the distance between us and take a seat at the table. “It’s nothing. I swear.”
“Girl, you’re practically walking bowlegged. I’ve been around the block plenty of times. You won’t shock me.”
I reach for the glass of wine and take a long drink. Good Lord, I needed this.
“I shouldn’t even be admitting what I did tonight.”
Harriet’s aged eyes practically light up as she grins. “Those are the best stories. Come now, I’ll take it to the grave.”
I squeeze my eyes shut. “I think I accidentally went to a sex club.”
Harriet’s wineglass clinks the metal of the table. “I knew this was going to be good. How do you accidentally go to a sex club?”
I tell her about the note that came to the office, and rushing to meet the appointment, assuming I was there to sell whiskey . . . and end with the part about running from the room.
Harriet claps with childlike excitement. “There’s hope for you yet, Temperance. When are you going back?”
I’m stunned at her reaction. I didn’t exactly expect her to judge, but I sure didn’t think she’d cheer me on.
“Never. I can’t. That’s not me. I’m not . . .”
“Interesting? Sexually adventurous? Up to be manhandled regularly by a real man?”
“I don’t even know his name!”
Harriet waves off my concern. “If I had a nickel for every man whose name I didn’t know, I’d be even richer than I am now. You can’t take life so seriously. You’ll never make it out alive. Now, you go upstairs, take the rest of this bottle of wine, and get tipsy enough to forget all the shouldn’ts and can’ts. If you need me to do some stalking to find this guy, just let me know. I have connections.”
Savage Prince was enthralling and answered no questions!
We met Temperance, Keira’s PA, now COO during The Mount Trilogy. I knew from her part in that series that she had an interesting past and that I most definitely wanted to learn about it. Temperance has fought for her place in a world that was miles away from the one she was born into.
Savage Prince begins with Temperance arriving at a sprawling mansion for what she thinks is a meeting about Seven Sinners Whiskey but turns into an awakening. Temperance meets a stunningly attractive man, who treats her as if he knows her every inner thought and desire and spends an evening with him before running out on him.
This is what he does to me.
I’m completely under his control.
My body no longer belongs to me.
He owns it.
After this first event you start to learn more about who Temperance really is, where she came from and why she became who she did. Working with Keira and knowing about Mount is far closer to a world she’s used too then she would lead people to believe.
Savage Prince is an introduction book, the plot and characters are written in a way to introduce you to more of this dark underworld that takes place in NOLA and leaves you begging for answers to all the loose ends that each chapter creates. Its 2 steps forward, 1 step back with every twist and turn.
While I enjoyed the start to temperance’s trilogy, I wasn’t as in love with her story as Keira and Mount’s. I loved the little glimpses we got of Keira and Mount and found myself looking more forward to hearing what they were doing than what Temperance was up too. In saying that I’m looking forward to Iron Princess where we will learn more about Temperance and the trouble she seems to have found herself in!
I listened to the Audio version of Savage Prince and can’t tell you how many times I was hiding in meeting rooms at work to listen or sitting in my car in the driveway just to find out what happened next. And in typical Meghan March style, I have no answers and can never seem to guess her next step!
I really enjoyed the narrators who were new to me and thought that Grace Grant conveyed Temperance’s personality really well. Grace Grant kept me on the edge of my seat and listening to her made me enjoy Savage prince all the more!
“Do you know what would be the height of stupidity?”
“To not take every opportunity to do the thing that makes your soul the happiest, especially when someone’s willing to pay you for it.”
Story ⭐️⭐️⭐️ .5
The Savage Trilogy continues....
He’s a mystery. An enigma.
His very identity is a secret buried beneath layers of deception.
He’s also an addiction I can’t shake. An attraction I can’t fight.
And then I found out exactly who he is—a man more dangerous than the devil himself.
Now I need him in order to save everything that matters to me.
I have to pull back. Protect myself from the danger that haunts his every step.
Which would be easy . . . if I could stop myself from falling in love with him.

Unthinkable. Unbelievable. Inconceivable.
I don’t recognize what my life has become. I can’t tell where the lies end and the truth begins anymore.
He came into my world and urged me out of my safe little corner.
All my dreams are coming true except the one thing I want most— my own happy ending.
But I’ll fight for it.
