Not sure if that was entirely the captivea the cover designers were looking for. 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. Every character is distinct, and if you weren’t already in love with Ismal, you will be, when you encounter him here via Ms Reading’s voice.

Kelicikan dan manipulatifnya lenyap tak bersisa. They ended up arguing and vying for superiority almost constantly, which made their supposedly loving relationship if unbelievable to me.

I liked the window of time that had passed allowing him to evolve. Even though the evil husband could have been killed by anybody under the sun, they conveniently focus on 5 people from their circle because “their instincts told them to” and don’t o to investigate anybody else.

While Ismal succeeds at toppling Beaumont’s empire, he finds himself dangerously attracted to the man’s estranged wife, Leila. Tetapi Esmond yg super tampa Saat suami Leila yg super bajingan ditemukan mendadak tewas dgn sianida, hidup Leila berubah sepenuhnya.

I like it when done well.

off As I already mentioned, neither the mystery nor the romance really struck a chord with me. This is not an easy or comfortable book, but the thee feels so much more earned at the end because of it. Her husband treated her horribly, even though he saved her after the murder of her own father and allowed her talents to shown through. Ismal is an equally strong hero, with a complex backstory. From my perspective, it mainly consisted of rather dull conversations, social interactions, and some character introspection.


If you’ve read the blurb you know that this is a romantic mystery where Leila Beaumont is trying to find out who killed her father almost a decade ago and who is responsible for the recent death of her capties.

That said, my expectations may have been overly high given that I thought Lord of Scoundrels was one of the best HRs I’ve ever listened to. His function in her life was primarily as a buffer against the many men interested in pursuing her. Vamos, que estaba deseando terminarlo. A definite winner and a keeper for anyone’s bookshelf. Leila woke up groggy and disorientated in the carriage of Francis Beaumont, who claimed he had rescued her from burglars, breaking the news of her father’s death to her.

I did have a little sympathy chse her over her first husband’s horrendous behavior, as well as his making fun of her passionate nature. May 14, Julianna rated it it was ok Shelves: This was a good but not great read. As I mentioned, the middle sags a bit, but the book still works far more than it doesn’t.

For instance, Leila worries so much about her sexuality and yet one brief post-coital conversation with Ismal cures her entirely. In Captives of the Nighteach little piece of the puzzle is laid out far too neatly, giving me virtually nothing about which to speculate.

She also has this very childish temper – she loves to destroy things – and thinks she knows better than everybody. So, why then, isn’t my rating higher?

Can’t say enough how good Kate Reading is reading this author. 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.

Of course, she can’t help but be tempted by the spy assigned to help her, Comte d’Esmond. Everything this duo does, I’ll pay full price! 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.

Leila is a strong, independent heroine, but one that inhabits the time period.

I do think Ismal was redeemable and considering his shenanigans in book 1, Chase had her work cut out for her. 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.

Captives of the Night — Loretta Chase

Esmond can’t afford the distraction of an entanglement, however passionate it promises to be. I was glad when this plot point was resolved. When I read Lord of Scoundrels, it was still hard to get hold of Loretta’s backlist. The twists n turns amazed me Quentin calls the reluctant Esmond in to begin an investigation—chances are they will let the real killer get away with it, just as they intended to do with Leila, but they do want to know whodunit and why.

But this series with Kate Reading narrating is simply too special to not mention, with words and rating. Judging a book by its cover: When the intriguing Comte d’Esmond enters a room, women swoon and men gnash their teeth.
