If Leila weren’t such an unrelieved bitch, I might’ve given a shit what happened to her and might’ve wondered if they eventually worked it out.
But, after chhase first time she slept with Esmond, she never brought it up again to him and I did not understand that. These two stories essentially take place simultaneously. One look from her tawny eyes is dangerously captivating. Aug 01, Lynn Spencer rated it really liked it Shelves: When she finally surrenders, she does so willingly and those scenes are beyond hot! While I did see a few faint glimmers of the writing style from Lord of Scoundrelsneither book, and Captives of the Night in particular, lived up to it’s superior standard in my opinion.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. This book is involved and you will need to keep track of the character names and events. However, this book went beyond my expectations to a whole new level. Of course his previous, youthful, misdemeanours and crimes become known as his love for Leila Beaumont develops, and he is utterly delicious While she hasn’t allowed him in her bed for years, Leila is nonetheless grateful to Francis for rescuing her when she was orphaned in Venice ten years ago, after her traitor father ran afoul of some people he betrayed.
Once the public’s mind has been set at ease about Beaumont’s death, D’Esmond’s superiors at the Home Office nonetheless teh to figure out who actually killed him, and set D’Esmond to investigate the crime. Apparently this is part 2 in the 4 book series.
Great in depth story capgives does pull you in and makes it hard to hit pause. Well matched couple investigates murder Only thing I did not like about this book was: Except for one or two extremely brief moments, I felt no real emotion or true spark of passion between Ismal and Leila, not even any palpable sexual tension.
Apr 14, D. Having the entire story be nothing but shades of gray absolutely drove me to distraction. From there, each of the suspects were basically introduced individually, and thoroughly vetted by the hero and heroine’s investigative lroetta to the point that I no longer took any of them seriously as the potential killer.
I found Captives of the Night to be lorerta heavy on the mystery element of the story to the point of overshadowing the romance, and in the end, neither aspect ever really grabbed my attention.
Kate Reading’s portrayal of the hot headed Leila is genius, there is no doubt of Leila’s artistic temperament which fairly sizzles, flying objects, temper tantrums her haphazard, loosely piled hair, falling out of its topknot, conjures up the beautiful, thd artist.
If the Comte hadn’t been incomprehensibly enamored with the unpleasant bitch, I might’ve enjoyed the budding romance.
Captives of the Night (Scoundrels, #2) by Loretta Chase
Fortunately a prince charming in the person of a young, handsome Francis Beaumont rescues her. Everything this duo does, I’ll pay full price! And that’s how Chase handled the second part of her dilemma. But this series with Kate Reading narrating is simply too special to not mention, with words and rating.
I am looking forward to logetta the next book in the series, Lord of Scoundrelswhich is highly praised and rated. The mystery I didn’t even see what was coming! Well nihht the credit and it rewards you for listening!

Feb 15, Anachronist rated it really liked it. The sex part still comes quite early for an historical novel, but at least it follows a decent seduction. I think I’ll just begin the series with book 2 in the future.
Oh, I love this story. After the death of her husband under suspicious circumstances, Leila becomes an amateur sleuth with Esmond as her partner. It actually makes me think poorly of Jason, honestly, that he would work for a man who would butcher a whole village if a person in it displeased him.
It is hard to take a villain from a prior book and make him the hero. The investigation promises to be lengthy and tedious, since there are no obvious leads and scores of people with good reason to want Francis dead. Both of them have scars and wounds to heal. I like it when done well. When it comes to the seduction — it was really realistic.
Captives of the Night — All About Romance
Esmond can’t afford the distraction of an entanglement, however passionate it promi When the intriguing Comte d’Esmond enters a room, women swoon and men gnash their teeth. You can always tell all the characters apart and I thought she did a great job with the Comte d’Esmond’s slight accent.
I find not a single element of her performance to be less stellar. At the beginning, she’s suspected of the crime, given that her and her husband haven’t gotten along in years and in fact, everybody knows they don’t even sleep together. It was a good romance End of the story? I was only a little disappointed that Dain and Jessica did not make an appearance. They become partners and investigate nasty dead hubby’s murder and soon their passions for each other collide.

Complex, difficult, flawed, manipulative and desperately lonely. My favorite Chase book ever!
