Now, what can we do to get “The Lion’s Daughter” the first in this series to be re-released?
Captives of the Night (Scoundrels, book 2) by Loretta Chase
It should also be pointed out, for those readers who are sick of “pregnancy epilogues” – Leila is barren and can’t have children, and there is a frank and very touching discussion about adoption in the later half of the book.
Although labeled as book 2 in the Scoundrels series, this book actually runs concurrently with books 3 and 4. This is romance and mystery in equal parts and I absolutely loved it. As it should be! And I loved Leila and Ismal together. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to chaxe. The characters were ghe and clear with colorful personalities which were easy to hear through Kate Readings performance.
Desert Isle Keeper
He is undercover trying to stop a man who was even more loreetta than he was. The book seemed to mostly take place shortly after the end of book 4. These two stories essentially take place simultaneously.
Francis Beaumont is the true villain of the piece but soon is murdered. A mio avviso, se preso singolarmente, questo libro non sarebbe neppure male come romance. 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 seem to investigate anybody else.

I found Captives of the Night to be very heavy on the mystery element of the story to the point of overshadowing the romance, and in the end, neither aspect ever really grabbed my attention. But, after the first time she slept with Esmond, she never brought it up again to him and I did not understand that. When I read Lord of Scoundrels, it was still hard to get hold of Loretta’s backlist.
Kate Reading subtly changes the accent but not the voice, very impressive. Not that I miss him.
Except for one or two extremely brief moments, I felt no real emotion or true spark of passion between Ismal and Leila, not even any palpable sexual tension.
We can even captivds them ready-grown, if we wish. It didn’t make a lot of sense until much later, when she really starts connecting the dots about Ismal’s work. I do think Ismal was redeemable and considering his shenanigans in book 1, Chase had her work cut out for her.
As it was written, it seemed like all the characters from The Lion’s Daughter who appeared in Captives of the Nighthad casually forgiven him and gone their nitht way almost as though nothing had ever happened. There is nothing I can say that is wrong with this book. As I mentioned, the middle sags a bit, but the book still works far more than it doesn’t. Leila had long ago given up on the idea of love and saw her husband as a means of propriety in London, but now she finds the dangerous Esmond’s seductive charm nearly irresistible.
Instead, Leila makes her excuses and rushes home. Kate Reading does her usual excellent job with this second volume of the Scoundrels series.
Jun 26, steph rated it liked it Shelves: One of his missions was to dismantle Leila’s husband’s criminal empire and see him punished. And also that there would be a story for them waiting to be told.
To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. In most of the mystery stories I have read, the author usually creates a line-up of potential suspects right from the start, dropping clues and hints of possible motives along the way, and making the reader think that each one may be the culprit.
They quarrel a lot. In addition, the romance aspect of the story fell completely flat for me.
You see, Leila is one of these heroines who develop before the eyes of the reader.
