Overview

In Need of a Knight--Previously Titled In Need of a Duke
Dear Readers,
I’ve received many emails asking where one might find In Need of a Duke, the prequel story for my Heart of a Duke series. Originally featured as part of a limited edition collection, when the collection was unpublished, so too was In Need of a Duke. 

When I received all my rights back, I put Aldora and Michael’s story through a rewrite, adding a new prologue, epilogue, characters, and expanded scenes. However, I still did not publish the book. You see, when I met Aldora’s friends, I was intrigued. Here were new ladies dreaming of love. I could not simply forget those characters, and yet neither, given the timeline of the Heart of a Duke series, could I tell their stories, either. Then, one of Aldora’s friends spoke to me, and spurred the creation of The Heart of a Scandal series, the first ever Heart of a Duke spin-off!. 

For those of you who've been looking for Aldora and Michael's story, I hope you enjoy!

Hugs,
Christi

Years earlier, a gypsy woman passed to Lady Aldora Adamson and her friends a heart pendant that promised them each the heart of a duke. 

Now, a young lady, with her family facing ruin and scandal, Lady Aldora doesn't have time for mythical stories about cheap baubles. She needs to save her younger siblings and has resigned herself to marrying a titled gentleman with wealth, power, and a respectable name. She sets her bespectacled sights upon the Marquess of St. James. Until...
 
An Unexpected Meeting

Turned out by his father after a tragic scandal, Lord Michael Knightly has grown into a powerful, but self-made man. With the whispers and stares that still follow him, he's been shut out of respectable society. He would rather be anywhere but London... 

Then he meets Lady Aldora, a young woman who mistakes him for his brother, the Marquess of St. James. The connection between Aldora and Michael is immediate and as they come to know one another, Aldora's feelings for Michael grow. 

Now, Aldora is left to choose between her responsibilities as a sister and her love for Michael.

Ok, ok, I confess, I knew this was going to be a great read before opening the book. Christi Caldwell has become one of my go to authors when I want a book I know I'm going to enjoy. In Need Of A Knight didn't disappoint. This is a fairly short book, perfect for historical romance fans with limited time for reading. Ms Caldwell has delivered a well-written book. Her characters are second to none, totally my favorite part of any book by Ms Caldwell. Aldora and Michael's story is loaded with drama, humor and spice and is a fun book to read. I enjoyed In Need Of A Knight and look forward to reading more from Christi Caldwell in the future. In Need Of A Knight is the prequel novella to The Heart of a Scandal Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book that I received from BookFunnel.

This was a very good short story to start out a series. Aldora and Michael meet under a case of mistaken identity. Michael is intrigued but the forthright and feisty girl and does not tell her his true identity. Michaels past is shrouded in scandal and he feels he has nothing to offer Aldora and no right to want her. Aldora's father has left them in debt and she must find a way to help her family. I loved the characters in this story and I do hope Christi Caldwell writes a book for each of Aldora's siblings and Michael's brother Marquees St. James. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series. *Book Obsessed Chicks Review team

In Need of a Knight by Christi Caldwell Heart of a Duke Series Prequel Novella Lady Aldora Adamson and her friends gain a magical necklace from a gypsy. The wearer of the necklace will find the man of her dreams. As young ladies of the ton, the desired man would be a duke. Just the type of man Aldora needed to pay her father’s debts and secure her families future. Several years later as it’s her turn to wear the necklace, she puts her plan in motion. She has chosen the perfect man, even if he isn’t a duke. Michael Knightly is in awe of the young woman he met in Hyde Park. Only he is not the one she wants. Like all of the London young ladies, she’ll be after wealth and a title. A title his brother holds. Not only does he not have a title, he also carries a disgraceful past with him. This is a shorter story but packed full of good reading. Aldora’s pride when it comes to her spectacles gets her into unique situations. And her honor to help her family has her trying to be a martyr.
