PRAISE FOR THE SIEGE OF LADY ALORIA
“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.”

“This story touched my heart. Lady Aloria had a privileged upbringing and loving parents, but that didn’t protect her from the intentionally unkind words of society gossip. She has come to doubt her ability to discern the intentions of men. Unfortunately, she loses her heart to a man who, while in fact IS indeed smitten with her, needs the assistance of her father to restore his family’s fortune. Naturally, she assumes he has pursued her only for the sake of her dowry and family. Nonetheless, Marcus pursues every opportunity to persuade Aloria of his true feelings. I enjoyed following this couple on the bumpy ride that eventually leads to a true understanding of the desires of each one’s heart.”
“I am not normally a fan of novellas, but this one I really loved! I adore Aloria and how strong she is despite everyone around her trying to keep her down. Marcus is great too in the way he cares for her despite what everyone else thinks or says. This was a great read and I would recommend to anyone who likes this genre.
