About the Author

Loretta Chase was graduated somewhat belatedly from Clark University with a B.A. in English. In the interim, she was a jeweler's clerk, boutiquesales clerk, and meter maid. Thereafter she worked at her alma mater. It was while moonlighting as a video scriptwriter that she met her husband, Walter, a video producer, who eventually seduced her into becoming an author. The recipient of several Romantic Times awards, she is also a Romance Writers of America RITA Award winner for The Sandalwood Princess, and a Golden Choice nominee for The Lion's Daughter, and a New York Times bestselling author.

There were things I liked about this book, but overall I thought the plot was convoluted and unneccessarily complicated. It took a long while for me to really like the characters, Ismal and Leila. The writing was good and some of the dialogue was very good, but I just didn't love the book.

I would have liked Captives of the Night more if it weren't for the murder mystery that directs most of the plot. It's pretty evenly balanced with the romance, so that the romance isn't overwhelmed or anything. Rather I found the murder mystery more of a distraction because I wasn't in the mood for a murder mystery. The hero, while something of a caricature at times, and seemingly less than or "almost human," as he's described, was original and interesting, and the heroine, despite her hang-ups about the sinfulness of sex and her own desires (which are actually dealt with very sympathetically,) was strong and intelligent. I liked how she demanded to become involved in the murder mystery, which the hero was investigating. She became his equal and his partner. Still, I never really connected with the characters and kept expecting more from the story than what I found. What really stands out about this book is the cover. What a creepy creepy man. His come hither look is more like a pervy ax murderer glare.P.S. I read this series out of order - Captives of the Night first, then The Lion's Daughter second. Only after reading The Lion's Daughter do I understand some of Ismal's history, which was only refered to obliquely in Captives of the Night. Getting his backstory helps with fleshing out his character a bit more, so I would suggest reading The Lion's Daughter first.

I love Loretta Chase. Like, LOVE Loretta Chase. My favorite romance dynamics from her are those that involve a lot of really sparkling/witty/hilarous dialogue (Miss Wonderful, Mr. Impossible). This one follows the more mysterious/foreign stranger and damsel in distress model, which isn't as exciting to me. But the characters are well-developed, the mystery plot is exciting, and, of course, it's hot. But for me this doesn't rise too far above others of its ilk. Absolutely still worth a read, though, especially since it gives a lot of context and background to Lord of Scoundrels and The Last Hellion, both of which are excellent.

This took me forever to read. I never really bought their attraction. It just felt forced.

I have enjoyed Loretta Chase's books, but this one wasn't as exciting. I loved The Lord of Scoundrals which was the first time you meet Beaumont, a character in this story.

I really enjoyed this book. I could feel the sexual tension between the lead characters and the plot was interesting and, for the most part, believable. There were a few holes in the story, but nothing that kept me from enjoying the book. There were some grammatical and spelling errors, but I find that more and more common these days, sadly. Overall, however, I feel good recommending this story.

Not the best L. CHASE book. I've read most of her books but this is inferior to her usual writing skill.

I usually like this author but I am only on page 23 of this book and there have been numerous missing words in the text in the screen of my Color Nook. I have never had this issue before. So I have to rate this book low based on the translation from print to e-reader.
