Otherwise though, Leila just wasn’t very relatable to me. I usually save this type of rating for sophisticated writing, like Broken for You, or The Time Captivds wife. 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.

Some five years into her marriage with Francis, Leila had given up any idea of redeeming him, and they had settled into an arrangement whereby she fulfilled her role as nominal wife, but devoted her time to forging a name for herself in the art world.

Francis, a great baddie, was a real deviant who loved blackmailing people and made them dance to his own tune. Still, even a weak Loretta Chase og better than the majority of books out there. Want to Read saving….

Cpatives sarebbe stato preferibile leggere questo volume dopo il terzo, visto che qui le vicende dei tre trovano il loro compimento. Friends and acquaintances are investigated, secrets are revealed and in the process they end up falling in love. Still cyase worthy listen though, especially given the fantastic narration, if you can go into it with an open mind. She’s all surly, aloof resistance and he’s all courtly, guilty devotion. Brainwashed by an ambitious mother to believe he could be chse Alexander the Great, he overreaches himself, causing havoc in the lives of many people, most importantly in the life of Leila.


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. Not that I miss him. We also got a couple of thr Christmas presents in the form of The Lion’s Daughter and Captives of the Nightboth of those narrated by the always excellent Kate Reading, whose wonderful recording of Lord of Scoundrel s has quickly become one of my all-time favourite audiobooks.

Before then, she had been making up her own stories but now she knew how to write them down to share. It was there that she met a video producer who inspired her to write novels and marry him. He leaves behind a widow- Leila who is an artist and becomes the new obsession of Esmond. Having the entire story be nothing but shades of gray absolutely drove me to distraction. Still a worthy listen though, especially given the fantastic narration, if you can go into it with an open Rating is for the captiges.

As a character, Leila is unpredictable which can chaes good, when she throws sudden and epically hilarious temper tantrums that involve destroying furniture and giving men captiives with warming pansbut she’s also inconsistent. Kelicikan dan manipulatifnya lenyap tak bersisa.

What would have made this romance irresistible? Published May 2nd by Berkley first published Why I read this? However, the writing here may be a little different, but it did not detract whatsoever from the meat of the story, the interaction of the main characters or the intrigue.

What I love most about the book is the hero. We need to solve a case! If the Comte hadn’t been incomprehensibly enamored with the unpleasant bitch, I might’ve enjoyed the budding romance. Romance-wise, 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.

Captives of the Night — Loretta Chase

Esmond subdues the desire to give into the temptation Leila represents, but is simultaneously driven to know and understand her, to provoke the passionate nature she conceals even while recognizing that it will lead to his own undoing. As for the other characters, I didn’t really have ths respect for any of them.


Did you struggle with it? This is fluff, but it is exceptional fluff. From there, each of the suspects were basically introduced individually, and thoroughly vetted by the hero and heroine’s investigative skills to the point that I no longer took any cbase them seriously as the potential killer.

What’s more curious, is that she freely admits having once loved her abusive and vile husband. Not only was I bored for the longest periods, I found myself baulking at how certain things were lkretta and how much attitudes have changed in twenty years.

I’m sure the author researched this but it’s like fingernails on a blackboard to me. Alexis Delavenne, Comte d’Esmond. All this I liked, the story, the writing, and I liked the mystery too, which managed to surprise me to a certain extent.

It’s danger that unites them and it’s danger that chains their hearts: We see a man with a very modern haircut peeping through some bed hangings or curtains; he’s got a definite five o’clock shadow and completely hairless arms waxed?

Captives of the Night

Fortunately the author did something rather better with this than you would usually expect in this kind of fictional narration. Lorefta plus de critiques. I knew that Ms.

Leila is at a house party, and the Comte appears. Having loved it so much, I was quite anxious to check out those other books, but I have to say that by comparison both have greatly disappointed me.
