Desert Isle Keeper
As I mentioned, the middle sags a bit, but the book still works far more than it doesn’t. What he isn’t prepared for is Leila Beaumont.

Stir in a damned if mystery, and you have a winner of a story. I do think Ismal was redeemable and considering his shenanigans in book 1, Chase had her work cut out for her.

That said, my expectations may have been overly high given that I thought Lord of Scoundrels was one captivs the best HRs I’ve ever listened to.
Captives of the Night
Having the entire story be nothing but shades of gray absolutely drove me to distraction. They move to Paris where Leila studies painting and leads a relatively comfortable life. I simply didn’t like certain aspects of the book. I’m not sure if I liked the heroine. Leila had long ago given up on the idea of love and saw her chsse as a means of propriety in London, but now she finds the dangerous Esmond’s seductive charm nearly irresistible.
He first met and was enchanted with the beautiful artist in Paris, but while Francis normally cared little for all the men fawning over his wife, knowing that his constant digs at her and his own behaviour had pretty much put Leila off men entirely, he was extremely jealous about D’Esmond’s attentions towards her.

I found Leila and Esmond bot 4. I do hate it when mysterious characters from previous books are suddenly open to explaining themselves in graphic detail, but I do want the protagonists of books to be developed and for the reader to be privy to their insecurities and feelings – and I only felt we got three-fourths of the way into Ismal’s head in Captives of the Nightwhich is a shame.
But work together they must: The count is fully accustomed to this reaction and brilliant at exploiting it. 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.
Admittedly, the real murderer was the person I least expected, so in that way I suppose it was somewhat well done. I had to buy LOS on ebook.
He spent most of the novel pulling fantastically evil stunts until he made the mistake of falling in obsessive love with that novel’s heroine, Esme, only to have his ass royally handed to him by the combined forces of Esme, her father, and her husband Lord Edenmont.
