The book wasn’t what I had come to enjoy so much from Ms.

Desert Isle Keeper

Leila is a strong, independent heroine, but one that inhabits the time period. D’Esmond works for the Home Office, however, and orchestrates a beautiful show of an inquest, where there is left no doubt to anyone that Francis Beaumont died of an accidental overdose.

Francis Beaumont is an absolutely odious individual, so there are MANY people with a will and motive to murder him. Bertekad utk menemukan pembunuh suaminya, Leila menugaskan Comte D’Esmond utk menyidik siapa pembunuhnya di kalangan teman2 suaminya. Books by Loretta Chase. As for the other characters, I didn’t really have much respect for any of them.

Gossamer Obsessions: “Captives of the Night,” by Loretta Chase

Ce que chqse membres d’Audible en pensent. Captives of the Night is the sequel to The Lion’s Daughterand in it, Ms Chase skilfully and 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!


We get here a mysterious death puzzle with plenty of viable and interesting suspects and secondary characters, two fascinating protagonists, a complex interrelationship and an escalating emotional and sexual tension yes, in this exact order, not the other way round. When she finally surrenders, she does so willingly and those scenes are beyond hot!

How does an author stop the heroine from becoming a contemptible doormat to an abusive husband while turning her into a possible adulteress and keep her relatable to an average romance reader?

In fact there were times that I found it difficult to believe that the same author had written both books. However, it was stated by that wretched omniscient narrator While he never saw Leila in person, he knew her father, Bridgeburton, had a child, and commanded his henchmen to drug her while they were doing business.

Captives of the Night — All About Romance

Everything this duo does, I’ll pay full price! His function in her life was primarily as a buffer against the many men interested in pursuing her.

Chase’s writing in recent years: She expresses her passions through her art, and avoids her husband and his disgusting friends as much as possible. Both Esmond and Leila fight their attraction for each other instead of giving into their insta-lust.


Captives of the Night

The heroine is too embittered by her past and her opium-eating pig of a husband to allow the hero close; the preternaturally beautiful hero, a reformed evil pig himself, is enslaved by her cold aloofness and has a guilty secret about his part in ruining her life, which naturally threatens to make their love impossible.

I do have a problem when I hear the Dowager’s language. All he really wanted was to seek the hand of his one true love, but unfortunately, that unsavory association had caused nearly everyone to mistrust him.


Even the secondary characters were pretty one-dimensional. What he isn’t prepared for is Leila Beaumont.

The whole situation could be described shortly this way: I usually save this type of rating for sophisticated writing, like Broken for You, or The Time Traveler’s wife. Because of Francis’ many enemies and victims, government officials lorettta a quiet investigation, many of whom fear fallout from Francis’ numerous blackmail and extortion schemes. Friends and acquaintances are investigated, secrets are revealed and in the process they end up falling in love.

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.

That didn’t sit well with me. While Dhase succeeds at toppling Beaumont’s empire, he finds himself dangerously attracted to the man’s estranged wife, Leila.

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.
