Captives of the Night
Apr 14, D. Published May 2nd by Berkley first published The Comte d’Esmond may claim a title, but with non-English background and shadowy past, he’s not much like the usual dukes frequenting modern European historicals either.
Captives of the Night makes for an intelligent mystery, with plenty of viable and interesting lorehta and secondary characters, and the kind of scandalous secrets that can bring down governments and incite murderous intent. Not that I miss him. While I didn’t have to completely force myself to read lofetta entire book like I have with a few others in the past, I did have to take a few breaks to read something else for a while.
But it was still well done because I really didn’t figure out who lorftta true killer was until just about the same time the two main characters did which was nice.
Paperbackpages. Rating is for the story.
Desert Isle Keeper
End of the story? At least the pig of a husband gets his just deserts. Even more difficult is the unwanted attraction between the two – Leila distrusts physical desire noght her husband used to cover up his own inability to sexually satisfy her by loreyta she had a freakishly insatiable lust.
Chase novel I’ve sincerely detested. But now I’m back, and with a Loretta Chase novel, to boot. For example Francis was never called a barbarian because he was a British citizen who lived many years in Paris.
Kate Reading is a complete genius Captives of the Night is my favorite romance novel of all time, and Kate Reading’s performance of the nlght makes it ten times better. Great in depth story that does pull you in and makes it hard to hit pause.
Csptives, I felt the same way – it’s good, a lot better than other romance novels I’ve read, but as I read it I kept discovering a sort of disconnect between the development of the romance and the interaction the characters actually have with each other. Lists with This Book.
Captives of the Night (Scoundrels, #2) by Loretta Chase
They fear the fallout from Francis’s numerous blackmail and extortion schemes which were financing his bad habits – they could do irreversible damage to the ranks of careless statesmen and aristocrats alike. I also enjoyed the couple of brief moments when she was playing the consummate seductress, and it was nice that she had cunning sleuthing skills equal to Ismal’s. Captives of the Night is the sequel to The Lion’s Daughterand in it, Ms Chase skilfully nnight memorably redeems the villain of the earlier book and turns him into a sexy, enigmatic and supremely capable hero — and a villain-turned-hero is like catnip for yours truly!
Francis Beaumont is an absolutely odious individual, so there are MANY people with a will and motive to murder cnase. Preview — Captives of the Captibes by Loretta Chase. Everything this duo does, I’ll pay full price!
She contents herself with the artistic career she’s developed separate from her husband, and refuses to be a victim, although she still harbours certain body and sexual issues thanks to her nght unkind manipulations.

Jun 26, steph rated it liked it Shelves: I also enjoyed the ending greatly and found the mystery of Francis’s killer to be engaging and not too predictable. Although I have some serious reservations at this point, I will in all likelihood read the final book, The Last Hellionat some point just for the sake of completeness. I liked the fact that as imperfect and infuriating as both characters were, they were evenly matched. He certainly doesn’t look like an Albanian masquerading as a French Count inwho is described as having slightly overlong blonde hair and amazingly sapphire blue eyes.
Though Leila is strong and alert to his calculated persuasiveness, his finesse and her long-suppressed sensuality combine to undermine her best intentions. Otherwise, though, Captives of the Night is a solid romance novel with a better-than-average mystery.
Unraveling all the horrible shit her husband had done, and how it involved all these other people When he tells her the truth, all sixteen times, but especially when he dresses as himself, speaks as himself, of himself. The audio book cover is this underwear-clad red-head, where I always get more distracted by the beautiful blue brocade wallpaper than the woman.
Instead, she focuses on who she was able to become an artist because of him. She surprises him with her fascination for the bits he does reveal when he expected her to react with shock and disgust, thereby winning a small chunk of his soul by recognizing the emotional cost he has paid in carrying out the necessary, but often dirty, business of the government.
