Loretta Chase is New York bestselling American author of romance novels. She was born in 1949 to a family of Albanian origin. She attended New England public schools and later graduated from Clark University with a degree in English. Chase worked at Clark University in administrative, clerical, and part-time teaching. Along the way, the author collaborated with clothing and Jewelry retailers, and also gained a six months experience with the Dickensian as a meter maid.

According to Loretta Chase, she always had a passion for writing, and that is why she majored in English instead of something else that would have resulted in a real job.

She wrote poetry, plays, letters, and the Great American Novel, which the author admits that the novel remains unfinished up to date. Before graduation, the author used to write for non-profit purposes until later when she graduated and started working as a corporate video scriptwriter. This job proved helpful and resulted in meeting a video producer who convinced into writing novels and eventually married him. The resulting books from this marriage union have won several awards including the Romance Writers of America (RITA) Award. Other awards include the Romance Readers Anonymous Awards, Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Awards, and the All about Romance Top 100 Romance award.

The Lions Daughter

The Lions Daughter is the debut novel in Scoundrels book series written by number one New York bestselling author Loretta Chase. In this epic book, Esme Brentmore wants revenge, and she does not care where this is a suitable job for a woman of her age or not. She is determined to take revenge on the killing of her beloved father, a staunch English aristocrat who lived a life of self-imposed exile.

She anticipates that nothing or no one will ever stand in her way and that includes a charming wastrel who has become connected in her life. The man in her life, Varian St. George, Lord Edenmont lives by his winning and wits after having gambled away his family fortune. He has always taken the soft paths in life, avoiding all the hard hustles of life and preferring going to bed with sweet, willing women and thus he does not want to get entangled in a quest with this hot-tempered and armed redhead.

However, this journey makes force the pair to travel in a foreign land, and the couple soon discovers that friction can produce some shaky sparks.

Captives of the Night

Captives of the Night is the second book in the Scoundrels series and the events depicted in this novel happens ten years after The Lions Daughter. The story redeems the villain of the debut novel in the series Ismal, who acted as the agent of the British Crown and becomes the hero of the second book.

After the death of Leila’s husband under mysterious circumstances, she becomes an amateur detective working with Ismal as her partner. Ismal has redressed himself from his past and has worked as an undercover agent for over ten years for the British Government, and thus due to Ismal involvement with the British government, Leila insists that she be kept informed on any possible clues regarding the death of her husband.

Leila driving force into the investigation is not the love for her husband; it is because she wants to know the mastermind behind the killing and also because she wants to hunt down the serial killer on the loose before he claims more lives.

At first, Ismal is reluctant before he is coerced into helping her in her quest and the Government would rather consider the death of Beaumont as accidental rather than waste resources on carrying investigations on a person who was a sexual deviant, drug and drink addict, and a waste of space. However, Leila is focused and determined on her quest regardless of the government opinion.

As the two begin their investigative journey, an inevitably slow simmering and a sexual attraction develop between the two. As the time goes by, the two couples begin to uncover each other secrets and learn to trust each.

Loretta Chase is an incredible author, and with Captives of the Night, she showcases her outstanding writing skills. The plot is entirely smart and intricate, as one peruses through the pages, all the clues are pulled together at last, and it becomes apparent that Ismal/Esmond and Leila are linked and have been associated together in a way that no one can separate them since from the past.

The character emulation in this novel is fantastic. For instance, Leila is just an amazing character; she is a woman even in the face of seduction, infidelity of her spouse, and physical as well as emotional abuse she manages to carve her life well and hopes for a better tomorrow.

She is passionate, intelligent, artistic, intuitive, compassionate and incredibly strong woman who will overcome all the obstacles that come alongside her way. She does her best to ensure that she repairs the damage that her husband did to those proximal to him while at the same time trying to solve the murder case. In the end, Leila gets to forgive all those who committed a crime against her, and even herself for what was beyond her control and also for what was not her responsibility.

Lord of Scoundrels

In the third installment of Scoundrels series, Loretta Chase continues to showcase her spectacular writing skills with another Regency romance novel titled Lord of Scoundrels.

The book was published in 1995 by Avon Books publisher. It was set in 1828, and it follows the story of Marquess of Dain and half Italian half English aristocrat also known as Lord Beelzebub and also as Lord of Scoundrels for his immoral, unscrupulous behavior. Due to the hardships during her childhood period, Marquess of Dain is hardened to the core, but however, he meets his match a 27-year-old lady known as Jessica Trent.

Lord of Scoundrels is another great novel the Loretta Chase of the Albanian origin. The plot development, as well as character, is well presented in this novel. Jess is an intriguing heroine character while Dain is, on the other hand, a real hero.
