Lady Aloria has experienced firsthand what balls, betrothals, and the ensuing betrayals can do to a woman. To heal her heart, Aloria’s aim is to simply survive her final grand ball before her twenty-fourth birthday, and hope that her parents finally come to terms with her spinsterhood and allow her to retire to the country in peace.

Unfortunately, Marcus Adair, the Duke of Wolfeton, has other plans for her future. In town to secure a bride, he has set his sights on Aloria, and no other woman will do. But after a chance meeting in a darkened hallway, Marcus realizes he not only needs Aloria in his life; he desires her above all others.

Can Lady Aloria forget her scandalous past to build a future with the Duke of Wolfeton?

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle:

I will admit. I don't read a ton of regency romances. Not because I don't like them, just simply because I prefer the darker stuff. Christina McKnight has, once again, made me question that. This novella was beautifully done, captivating, enchanting, and perfectly paced.

Set in Christina's Lady Forsaken world with ties to Kathryn Le Veque's de Wolfe Pack novels, we meet Lady Aloria, a voluptuous 24 year old in her last season, wanting to simply get it over with and retire to the country estate for some peace. She's had nothing but bad luck with love, and is kind of over it all. In her last ball celebrating her birthday, she stumbles upon the Duke of Wolfeton. He is, of course, perfect. But he has secrets, and those secrets may just be enough to break her.

While Marcus came to the ball to get to know Lady Aloria in an attempt to garner the attention of her father and gain access to his ships to move some cargo and hopefully get himself out of the mountain of debt his father left him with, he never expected to feel such a pull towards the hostess. But ton gossip spreads fast, and his chances with her almost end up being over before they begin.

The Siege of Lady Aloria is a wonderfully written tale of gaining trust, learning to love (both others and oneself) and second chances. I highly recommend it!!
