Apparently this is part 2 in the 4 book series. Leila and Esmond were written in such a way that was mind boggling.

This was a xhase but not great read. It takes her a long time to realise just how insidious and toxic his influence over her has been, and how many insecurities and hang-ups she harbours, all placed there carefully by her husband, to ensure that while she may not be allowing him into her bed, she certainly wasn’t going to sleep with and experience pleasure with anyone else either.

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

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 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.

No trivia or quizzes yet.

Her character didn’t make sense whatsoever, a supposedly strong and sophisticated woman with a very provincial view of tje. In Captives of the Nightthe heroine is the first one to be suspected of her husband’s murder, but of course we know that she cannot be the guilty party.


After listening to the first book of the series, I was worried. When he tells her the truth, all sixteen times, but especially when he dresses as himself, speaks as himself, of himself. I found it rather unjust.

Captives of the Night (Scoundrels, #2) by Loretta Chase

Getting rid of an unwanted balls in chain pun intended was the only way for the true romance to move on. Still, I’m going to have to solve this murder, if only to keep it from going public. Chase novel I’ve sincerely detested.

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 Captives of the Night had one of the most disagreeable heroines I’ve had the misfortune to find in romance. He first met and was enchanted with the beautiful artist in Paris, but while Francis normally cared little for all the men fawning over his wife, knowing that his constant digs at her and his own behaviour had pretty much put Leila off men entirely, he was extremely jealous about D’Esmond’s attentions towards her.

Be the first to ask a question about Captives of the Night. An exile from his beloved homeland and a man still paying for the sins of an impetuous youth. It seems she did so to emphasize the fact that the man came from a very wild and exotic country, apparently full of man-eaters, dragons, vampires and such.

He leaves behind a widow- Leila who is an artist and becomes the new obsession of Esmond. And prepare to be wowed. Admittedly, the real murderer was the person I least expected, so in that way I suppose it was somewhat well done. D’Esmond may have been working for the Home Office as an agent for the last ten years, but there are dark deeds in his past, and he realises that some of them affected Leila indirectly.


It made the book a joy to read.

Captives of the Night

Kali ini sang hero adalah Esmond yg sblmnya adalah Ismal, tokoh antagonis di novel The Lion’s Daughter. Esmond as the impossibly handsome and enigmatic French Comte is a husky voiced The Comte D’Esmond is actually the villain in Chase’s earlier novel, The Lion’s Daughterwhere as a ruthless Albanian prince, he not only tries to usurp his cousin, the Pasha, but becomes obsessed with the daughter of an English nobleman and chases her and the man she loves across Europe, intent on stealing her back.

He spent most of loregta novel pulling fantastically evil stunts until he made the mistake caotives falling in obsessive love with that novel’s heroine, Esme, only to have his ass royally handed to him by the combined forces of Esme, her father, and her husband Lord Edenmont.

I call it a true romance because it isn’t magically easy. From my perspective, it mainly consisted of rather dull conversations, social interactions, and some character introspection. For me, it worked. Her husband treated her horribly, even though he saved her after the murder of her own father and allowed her talents to shown through.

Xhase will read listen again and again. Instead, Leila makes her excuses and rushes home. Leila Beaumont’s art and her husband’s wild living brought them into contact with aristocratic society, but she is not titled herself.
