This one really exceeded my expectations in a very positive way. I liked the window of time that had passed allowing him to evolve. Her character didn’t make sense whatsoever, a supposedly strong and sophisticated woman with a very provincial view of sex.

A final note – I listened to this in audio book this time around, and as tge the other Loretta Chase historicals, it’s narrated by the excellent Kate Reading. The narration by Kate Reading is 5-stars. This is what I have been missing from today’s historical romance. As I mentioned, I wasn’t a fond of Leila.

Leila is also a fascinating character, a passionate artist struggling with self-loathing after she finds out her father was a criminal and a traitor. Fabulous, witty writing, wonderful characters, plots, chemistry, and of course, romance. I find not a single element of her performance to be less stellar. But work together they must: Everyone in the book, including Cbase and Leila, appeared to be moral relativists.

Chase’s writing in recent years: It made the book a joy to read. 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.


Loved the story, the characters and the murder mystery.

Francis Beaumont is an absolutely odious individual, so there te MANY people with a will and motive to murder him. Reading is the best as always. While I didn’t have to completely force myself to read the entire book like I have with a few others in the past, I did have to take a few breaks to read something else for a while.

Return to Book Page. A murder mystery with strong captices, and handsome, intelligent men; some you love-some you hate. It was a good romance There is also hhe secondary character, Lady Brentmor, who has a fairly important part in both books.

Captives of the Night — All About Romance

Because of his skillful maneuvering she is acquitted but she must help a quiet investigation, initiated by government officials. You can read the rest of this review at AudioGals. It’s a delightfully realistic take on two people finding each other and giving themselves a second chance in happiness. Of course, she can’t help but be tempted by the spy assigned to help her, Comte d’Esmond. For example Francis was never called a barbarian because he was a British citizen who lived many years in Paris.

You can always tell all the characters apart and I thought she did a great job with the Comte d’Esmond’s slight accent.

We can also choose our own assortment of ages and genders. 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.


As much as I don’t miss the euphemisms, I do miss the sensual seductions that used to ghe outright sex in romantic fiction. Though long ago, Francis very much played the hero, rescuing and fhe the orphaned year-old Leila – Francis’ more recent hedonistic captivds of drinking, drugging and loretfa has not only earned him quite a few enemies captivds London, but lost him the love of his wife.

Leila Beaumont is a beautiful and very talented portrait artist, as celebrated throughout Europe as her husband, Francis, is becoming reviled. Also, I’m valiantly ignoring all the bad, badwords like female, core, and a host of others I’ve managed to forget since reading the book.

Soon she becomes so much stronger and savvy that the frightened, drugged young girl, introduced at the very beginning. Her husband treated her horribly, even though he saved her after the murder of her own father and allowed her talents to shown through.
