However, she knows she must find the culprit and clear her name if she wants to pursue her artistic career. But, after the first time she slept with Esmond, she never brought it up again to him and I did not understand that. The sex part still comes quite early for an historical novel, but at least it follows a decent seduction.
My favorite Chase book ever! With a little more effort from the listener, Chase and narrator K. In Captives of the Nighteach little piece of the puzzle is laid out far too neatly, giving me virtually nothing about which to speculate. Esmond having pursued her from the party, turns up.
There is also a secondary character, Lady Brentmor, who has a fairly important part in both books. And the heroine is a painter in 19th-century France! 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.
Leila is also a fascinating character, a pas Oh, I love this story. All he really wanted was to seek the hand of his one true love, but unfortunately, that unsavory association had caused nearly everyone to mistrust him. This is not an easy or comfortable book, but the romance feels so much more earned at the end because of it. Both Esmond and Leila fight their attraction for each other instead of giving into their insta-lust.
So Far Above the First!!!! Kate Reading is a complete genius Captives of the Night is my favorite romance novel of all time, and Kate Reading’s performance of the book makes it ten times better. I call it a true romance because it isn’t magically easy. Although the listener doesn’t need to listen to the Lion’s Daughter first, I think this book is more satisfying.
Rasanya spt membaca dua tokoh berbeda tetapi dipaksakan utk menjadi satu orang. But work together they must: Captives of the Night makes for an intelligent mystery, with plenty of viable and interesting suspects and secondary characters, and the kind of scandalous secrets that can bring down governments and incite murderous intent.
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? I also felt Ismal played it a little too close to the vest. What he isn’t prepared for is Leila Beaumont. She loves calling herself a “whore” because she likes sex even and browbeats herself for being attracted to Esmond.
How does an author stop the heroine from becoming a contemptible doormat to an abusive husband while turning her into a possible adulteress and keep her relatable to an average romance reader? Aug 01, Keri rated it really liked it Shelves: Tetapi Esmond yg super tampa Saat suami Leila yg super bajingan ditemukan mendadak tewas dgn sianida, hidup Leila berubah sepenuhnya. He’s honorable, but also just dangerous enough that I could believe in a villainous past or at least one full of seriously bad judgment.
I found it very well executed, not unlike plots in books of my favourite romance writer, Courtney Milan. One of his missions was to dismantle Leila’s husband’s criminal empire and see him punished. Now you have to answer my questions!

Captives of the Night — All About Romance
I’m sure the author researched this but it’s like fingernails on a blackboard to me. She is nicely rounded, has a depth and passion.
This one really exceeded my expectations in a very positive way. She’s all surly, aloof resistance and he’s all courtly, guilty devotion. Esmond can’t afford the distraction of an entanglement, however passionate it promi When the intriguing Comte d’Esmond enters a room, women swoon and men gnash their teeth.

I think she really grew into her strength as a writer a bit later. Aug 29, Carolyn rated it it was amazing Shelves: As a character, Leila is unpredictable which can be good, when she throws sudden and epically hilarious temper tantrums that involve destroying furniture and giving men concussions with warming pansbut she’s also inconsistent. In fact, you can start with 3 which is the most loved book by this author with the confidence of knowing that you don’t have to read this book or the one preceding it because they have nothing to do whatsoever with it.
Which scene was your favorite? All immoral behavior was brushed off in a far too casual and accepting way, with nearly everyone making excuses for everyone else. Misterinya juga terungkap dgn ending yg bagi saya, lebih mirip kesia-siaan.

The Comte d’Esmond is srsly hawt. It took me awhile to get into this, but captievs I did I really liked it. Can’t say enough how good Kate Reading is reading this author. To me, the book was very dry and lackluster, with no action to speak of at all. Where did you go to school? Aug 01, Lynn Spencer loeetta it really liked it Shelves: She nighg her passions through her art, and avoids her husband and his disgusting friends as much as possible.
She surprises him with her fascination for the bits he does reveal when he expected her to react with shock and disgust, thereby winning a small chunk of his soul by recognizing the emotional cost he has paid in carrying out the necessary, but often dirty, business of the government.
The short answer is yes – but you’ll certainly enjoy a bigger understanding of Ismal’s character if you manage to get your hands on Lion’s Daughter first.
Everyone in the book, including Ismal and Leila, appeared to be moral relativists. You can read the rest of this review at AudioGals. Next, reading Lord of ScoundrelsI got my first look at the Comte d’Esmond, a minor character and distant acquaintance of the novel’s hero, Lord Dain, who spent most of his brief time making eyes at the wife of another, skeezier acquaintance, Beaumont.
