Leila Beaumont is a gorgeous and talented portrait painter trapped in a loveless marriage with her profligate husband, Francis. Though long ago, Francis very much played the hero, rescuing and wedding the orphaned year-old Leila – Francis’ more recent hedonistic lifestyle of drinking, drugging and womanizing has not only earned him quite a few enemies in London, but lost him the love of his wife.
When Francis turns up dead in the Beaumont townhouse, right after a loud and vitriolic argument with his wife, Leila is seen as the primary suspect, innocent though she is. Because of Francis’ many enemies and victims, government officials instigate a quiet investigation, many of whom fear fallout from Francis’ numerous blackmail and extortion schemes. The man they call on – the sexy blue-eyed Comte d’Esmond – is a man of many talents who has spent the past ten years as one of the government’s most trusted covert operatives; a man who also has a dark and treacherous past.
Neither Leila, nor Esmond is especially happy to be working together – their relationship is one of intense attraction accompanied by intense resistance. 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.
But work together they must: Esmond, with a carefully hidden identity that would shock Leila to the core and Leila with her own secrets to keep It’s danger that unites them and it’s danger that chains their hearts: Esmond’s virility and bold touch enflame Leila’s blood This is the second title in Loretta Chase’s Scoundrels Series.
I thought Kate Reading did another fantastic job with this title. She does a great job with narrating male voices in addition to females.
You can always tell all the characters apart and I thought she did a great job with the Comte d’Esmond’s slight accent. Although the listener doesn’t need to listen to the Lion’s Daughter first, I think this book is more satisfying. Leila is a great character – she refuses to allow people to feel bad for her despite Francis being a terrible husband and all around scumbag.
Instead, she focuses on who she was able to become an artist because of him. Chsae also enjoyed the ending greatly and found the mystery of Francis’s killer to be engaging and not too predictable. It was a good romance Great in depth story that does pull you in and makes it hard to hit pause.
I didn’t expect to like the hero since he was horrible in the first book. But Chase did a good job of redeeming him. I liked the heroine very nught. Reading is the best as always. I decided to get another one of Loretta Chase’s books once I was finished with Lord of scoundrels. I was not disapointed with that decision. Loved the story, the characters and the murder mystery. Captives of the Night is my favorite romance novel of all time, and Kate Reading’s performance of the book nght it ten times better.
If I hadn’t experienced it, I wouldn’t have believed it was possible. I lost sleep this week staying up to listen–and I’ve read the book captivss times. 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. First of all, Kate Reading does a fabulous job with the narration of the audiobook.
Other than one not-so-good book I captuves truly enjoyed Loretta Chase’s romances. This one is another good one! I do have a problem when I hear the Dowager’s language.
Desert Isle Keeper
I’m sure the author researched this but it’s like fingernails on a blackboard to me. I had a bit of a issue trying to keep track of some of the characters but it all worked out.
Llretta didn’t want this to end. He briefly saw her 10 years prior before her life imlpoded with her father’s death. Chzse her husband is murdered and he is sent to solve the crime. I liked continuing the story of our leading man introduced in earlier in this series. I liked the window of time that had passed allowing him to evolve.
I liked her strong will though her loathing of her own passion was a bit irritating. I was glad when this plot point was resolved. This was a good but not great read. A murder mystery with strong women, and handsome, intelligent men; some you love-some captivew hate. Chase writes a wonderful historical romance that is so much more.
This book is involved and you will need to keep track chhase the character names and events. With a little more effort from the listener, Chase and narrator K. Reading provide hours of entertainment with this sensual and romantic “who-done-it”.
Well worth the credit and it rewards you for listening! Everything this duo does, I’ll pay full price! This is fluff, but it is exceptional fluff. Fabulous, witty writing, wonderful characters, plots, chemistry, and of course, romance. Can’t say enough how good Kate Reading is reading this author. How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable? Which scene was your favorite? When he tells her the truth, all sixteen times, but especially when he dresses as himself, speaks as himself, of himself.
What would have made this romance irresistible? I will read listen again and again. I usually save this type of rating for sophisticated writing, like Broken for You, or The Time Traveler’s wife. Romance is just fluff, fills the ride. But this series with Kate Reading narrating is simply too special to not mention, with words and rating. After listening to the first book of the series, I was worried.
However, this book went beyond my expectations to a whole new level. I despised the main character Ismael in the first book; but this book simply exemplifies the fact that we all grow and change. The story is intriguing and beguiling, oft funny, and wonderfully romantic. Kate Reading did a much better job in this book narrating. This is on my re-read list. I think I’ll just begin the series with book 2 in the future.
Not a typical fluff filled romance, but very very good! The mystery I didn’t even see what was coming!
