The narration by Kate Reading is 5-stars. Chase writes a wonderful historical romance that is so much more. Captives of the Night had one of the most disagreeable heroines I’ve had the misfortune to find in romance. He is in love with her long before he’s able to finally break through the layers of conditioning that make her think sex is something rather repellent and allowed access into her bed.
Leila Beaumont is a beautiful and very talented portrait artist, as celebrated throughout Europe as her husband, Francis, is becoming reviled. It’s danger captivea unites them and it’s danger that chains their hearts: Jul 29, Tasha rated it it was amazing Shelves: And it’s Loretta Chase, so the writing is more evocative than many. The count is fully accustomed to this reaction and brilliant at exploiting it.
Of course, she can’t help but be tempted by the spy assigned to help her, Comte d’Esmond.
Captives of the Night — All About Romance
Judging a book by its cover: While I love LOS, some of her earliest books are a bit weak for me. This means he and Leila have to spend a lot of time together, reluctantly fighting their growing attraction towards one another.
This honestly is one of Chase’s best works and her hero Esmond is so unique and overall seductive in his talk and actions that Leila had no chance.
I’d almost given up on the hope of reading scene something as innocuous as a good look at a man’s hands can raise the temperature of the room. But she was and I didn’t. The sex part still comes quite early for an historical novel, but at least it follows a decent seduction. Captives is the sequel to The Lion’s Daughter where Comte d’ Esmond Ismal is his real name was the villain of that story and now he is the hero and after ten years he is back with a vengeance but on the right side of Loretta Chase is an incredible writer and with Captives of the Night, she writes a near perfect book.
Sorry for the wait, folks. Romance is just fluff, fills the ride. View all 11 comments. As I mentioned earlier, Ismal was the villain of that book and played a major role in the story. After listening to the first book of the series, I was worried.
This was a good but not great read. I was not disapointed with that decision.
Desert Isle Keeper
Okay – what’s your name? However, it was stated by that wretched omniscient narrator Well, ok, I just feel like explaining… Every time I read a romance book Nlght think I need to explain…oh well…maybe because a romance, historical, paranormal or contemporary, is not exactly my favourite genre.
I recommend this to capties who enjoys historical romance with mystery, suspense and passion from a hero for a woman who becomes his soul, or so he believes- this book is for you.
I call it a true romance because it isn’t magically easy. Gratuit pendant 30 jours, avec un titre au choix offert.
Captives of the Night
I wasn’t particularly invested in either their romance or the mystery, but everything wrapped up nicely with view spoiler nigt five main suspects having been involved in a conspiracy to retrieve some letters he was blackmailing them with, while the person who murdered him was not even llretta suspect until the blackmail was discovered. Captives of the Night is my favorite romance novel of rhe time, and Kate Reading’s performance of the book makes it ten times better.
Where is LC’s quicksilver wit and spot-on prose? He’s used to fixing dirty jobs, and investigating Beaumont is one of the dirtiest, but the job’s not without its’ perks – like Beaumont’s hot wife, Leila I’m sure the author researched this but it’s like fingernails on a blackboard to me.

Where are LC’s flawed but likable hero and admirable heroine? A mio avviso, se preso singolarmente, questo libro non sarebbe neppure male come romance. May 23, Publication Date: For me, there are keepers, then there are keepers.
I despised the main character Ismael in the first book; but this book simply exemplifies the fact that we all grow and change. Aug 29, Carolyn rated it it was amazing Shelves: Chase was going to have to do something pretty spectacular captievs believably redeem Ismal in my eyes, and unfortunately, I didn’t feel that she fully succeeded. Neither Leila nor Esmond are particularly happy about his involvement in the case, as their relationship, since he orchestrated a meeting in Paris the year before, has been a tug-of-war between attraction and resistance.
There’s a slight problem, though.
Captives of the Night (Scoundrels, book 2) by Loretta Chase
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I also enjoyed the ending greatly and found the mystery of Francis’s killer to be engaging and not too predictable. Still a worthy listen though, especially given the fantastic narration, if you can go into it with an open mind.
He was a pretty wicked villain throughout the first book, but I remember the bit at the end, where Jason tells Ismal that he pities Ismal – that he is a brilliant, talented young man who threw his life away nignt and it stood out to me. Alexis Delavenne, Comte d’Esmond.
I do get a kick out of her. Rating is for the story.
