This was a most enjoyable book.

Not often do I find a book that not only holds my attention but also has such likable people weaved into such a likable story...this was such a book.

Brazos and Maddie mesh well together. They play off one another in a very good and believable way.
And the secondary characters were well described and not left in the shadows.

The plot moves at a fast pace and the story doesn't get bogged down at all.
As I stated before, it held my attention all the way through and I did no skimming/skipping at all.

A very enjoyable read.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon January 3, 2013
I loved this book. As historical romance is one of my favorite reading materials, I was hoping this would be great and it didn't let me down at all. What I think makes this book stand out from the crowd of other books, is that there is more than one thing going on in this book. Instead of it being the typical boy meets girl drama with a bit of historical fancy, this book has multiple layers and lots of things to keep you reading.

I also thought the author stayed very consistent with her dialogue and I never felt like she had accidentally slipped into modern times when her characters were speaking. I would highly recommend this book to any lover of this genre. Terrific!

I was expecting an ordinary historical romance. I only hoped the story would have enough going on to keep it interesting. I got a lot more than I expected with this book! You'll travel along with the beautiful thief Madeline as she runs away from Europe to Texas. She encounters more than she bargained for along the way. Love, kidnapping, a evil Mexican war lord and there is even an evil step-mother. This book has a lot going on, yet the author put it all together in a way that kept me engrossed in the story all the way through. I really liked it a lot.

Geralyn Dawson's Capture the Night, is an exciting historical, psychological novel with truly great heroes, a violent, sadistic bad man, and a a love story that ties together several families in unexpected ways. I look forward to the next book in the series.

Once a reader takes up this book, it is hard to set it aside. There’s adventure, kidnappings, lots of travel and a wide assortment of characters. It will be hard to synthesize this plot in a few sentences.

Madeline Christophe was dumped at a children’s home while she was still very young. She thought her mother did not want her and no one ever came to see her. Figuring she would have to fend for herself, Maddie learned to be a pickpocket and an all-round thief.

Now, Maddie is trying to get onboard a ship to go from Antwerp to Texas with a baby she has stolen. Because the leaders will not allow a single woman to travel alone, she enters into a marriage of convenience with a Texan, Brazos Sinclair. Maddie plans to join a utopian society near Dallas, after she gets an annulment from Brazos. That’s fine with Brazos; he never wanted to marry anyway.

Maddie soon learns that her new husband has horrible nightmares; they come to the surface because of Sinclair’s fear of dark, enclosed areas. On board ship, there are plenty of dark, enclosed places and Sinclair’s demons come to the fore. Fortunately, Maddie is able to help him escape his terrors for a time.

There are lots of things going on in this book yet the author brings things full-circle to a rousing conclusion. 4.5 stars

Not to be over-dramatic, but this was a pretty bad book. And I read a lot, and have put up with a lot in the past. I didn't mind the cheesiness of the love story and It didn't lack plot - but all the twists and turns just left you confused and nothing was very well developed or explained. All the reviews here are good, and so I feel the need to give my honest opinion. Just find a better book. There are many of them out there.

This book provided an interesting and well thought-out plot. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, enjoying watching the relationship develop between the main characters. I enjoyed the main character of this book immensely because of her determination to be an independent woman in a time and place where that was not the norm. Would recommend for a quick, enjoyable read.

This is a well-written book, with a good story line and likeable characters. It has intrigue, suspense, believable situations, and is a story that you can't wait to find out what happens next. You find yourself breathlessly hoping that the hero and the heroine can find a way to conquer the danger awaiting them.

I really liked this story and it's multiple cliff hangers. It was a really fun read and had some new and interesting story lines. It was a little too gruesome for me in the end and I admix I felt a little queasy inside, but I kept reading and finished.
