Lorettta I have some serious reservations at this point, I will in all likelihood read the final book, The Last Hellioncapfives some point just for the sake of completeness. I believe that there are often shades of gray in life, but that there are also things which are simply black and white, right and wrong.
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 chasse of the romance and the interaction the characters actually have with each other. And Kate Reading just brought the characters to life. The book wasn’t what I had come to enjoy so much from Ms. No one was truly good or bad, not even the wretched deceased husband.
Desert Isle Keeper
Both Esmond and Leila fight their attraction for each other instead of giving into their insta-lust. I recall him as being pretty awful in Capives. Where did you go to school? Si lo se voy directamente al libro 3.
After the death of her husband under suspicious circumstances, Leila becomes an amateur sleuth with Esmond as her partner. Most of it takes part after the demise of dear Francis and very rightly so, that man was up to no good. Quotes from Captives of the N Kate Reading is Simply Brilliant!
Who wrote this dreck? What’s lorettx curious, is that she freely admits having once loved her abusive and vile husband. Saat suami Leila yg super bajingan ditemukan mendadak tewas dgn sianida, hidup Leila berubah sepenuhnya.
Ismal had been the villain of the previous book, The Lion’s Daughterin which he had done some very bad things, including trying to overthrow his cousin, the leader of Albania although he was a very distasteful character himself and completely obsessing over the heroine of that story to the point of kidnapping and threatening to rape her.
Even as he wants to seduce her and win her love, he is terrified that the intelligent and dangerously perceptive woman will figure out the secrets of his past, and how he may have been the person to set her on the path to her disastrous marriage to Francis in the first place. You could not think I kissed you by accident. I liked the fact that as imperfect and infuriating as both characters were, they were evenly matched.
Captives of the Night
And boy, do those two clash! As I mentioned earlier, Ismal was the villain of that book and played a major role in the story. Though Leila is strong and alert to his calculated persuasiveness, his finesse and her long-suppressed sensuality combine to undermine her best intentions.
All immoral behavior was brushed off in a far too casual and accepting way, with nearly everyone making excuses for everyone else.
Gossamer Obsessions: “Captives of the Night,” by Loretta Chase
Captives of the Night is my favorite romance novel of all time, and Kate Reading’s performance of tne book makes it ten times better. I appreciate the historical accuracy of such attitudes, but I can’t help but feel that nitht author writing today would have chosen his or her words differently especially when describing someone as tolerant as Comte d’Esmond talking or thinking about the matter. For all that she’s not had a great marriage and is aware of many of her husband’s flaws, Leila refuses to see herself as a victim and is grateful to her husband for making her the artist she now is.
It took me awhile loretga get into this, but once I did I really liked it. She is just one step away from being thrown out on the streets and facing a very bleak future.
That said, my expectations may have been overly high given that I thought Lord hhe Scoundrels was one of the best HRs I’ve ever listened to. You can read the rest of this review at AudioGals.
Preview — Captives of the Night by Loretta Chase.
Unbeknownst to the world, Leila is the daughter of an English traitor who stole and sold English weapons to foreign powers. Everything this duo does, I’ll pay full price! Her friend Fiona tries to goad her into an affair Fi hates Francis—with good reason, it turns out.
Even the secondary characters were pretty one-dimensional. Kate Reading’s portrayal of the hot headed Leila is genius, there is no doubt of Leila’s artistic temperament which fairly sizzles, flying objects, temper tantrums her haphazard, loosely piled hair, falling out of its topknot, conjures up the beautiful, temperamental artist. The Comte d’Esmond is srsly hawt.
Return to Book Page. The accents, the passion, the fury and despair, all of it had me captivated, if you’ll pardon the pun: When she finally surrenders, she does so willingly and those scenes are beyond hot!
Feb 15, rameau rated it liked it Recommended to rameau by: Also the timeline is a bit confusing. Kate Reading did a much better job in this book narrating. Well worth the credit and it rewards you for listening! If the Comte hadn’t been lorretta enamored with the unpleasant bitch, I might’ve enjoyed the budding romance.
Neither character wallows in their misfortune. The Comte d’Esmond, an admirer of Leila’s and secret government agent, is tasked with finding out the murderer. Tye mio avviso, se preso singolarmente, tthe libro non sarebbe neppure male come romance.
We should start with some basic questioning. Can you say right up my alley? Il n’y a pas encore de critique disponible pour ce titre.
