Book Description

Dec 1 2002
"Once upon a time... ...as a fair maiden lay weeping upon a cold tombstone, her heartfelt desire was suddenly made real before her: tall, broad of shoulder, attired in gleaming silver and gold, her knight in shining armor had come to rescue his damsel in distress.... A Knight in Shining Armor Jude Deveraux's beloved bestseller has captivated readers the world over; now in a special edition featuring new material, this timeless love story greets a new generation. Abandoned by her lover, thoroughly modern Dougless Montgomery finds herself alone and brokenhearted in an old English church. She never dreamed that a love more powerful than time awaited her there...until Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck, a sixteenth-century knight, appeared. Drawn to him by a bond so sudden and compelling that it defied reason, Dougless knew that Nicholas was nothing less than a miracle: a man who would not seek to change her, who found her perfect just as she was. But she could not know how strong were the chains that tied them to the past -- or the grand adventure that lay before them.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In her hardcover debut, Deveraux ( The Taming ) offers an imaginative romantic historical fantasy, whose virtue of unpredictabiity is undermined by plodding, graceless prose. Vacationing in England with her lover, Robert, and his spoiled teenage daughter, heroine Dougless Montgomery is abandoned by them in a remote country churchyard near the tomb of Nicholas Stafford, an earl who died in 1564. Almost immediately, an armor-clad swashbuckler materializes--Nicholas himself, reincarnated in the 20th century to clear his reputation, having been unjustly convicted of treason. Intrigued by his plight, Dougless agrees to help Nicholas learn his accuser's identity and restore his good name. They become lovers, and their adventures briefly lead Dougless back to the 1560s, allowing Deveraux to portray that period from a contemporary woman's perspective, as well as 1988 through the eyes of a confounded Elizabethan nobleman. Well-detailed historical highlights and a heartwarming conclusion will enhance the novel's commercial appeal to those Deveraux fans willing to lay out the extra cash for froth bound in hardcover.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book will change you. Feb. 20 2013
By Dossa
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What can I say about Knight in shining armor, other than the fact that why did all that change in the modern world? Jude always feeds my hope that there are still real knights out there.

This book has taken me to another level, it wasn't only love and passion, it was time travel, sadness and despair, anger, heart-wrenching, uplifting, depressing, beautiful, adventurous, exciting, intense, exquisite....I'd like to add many many more adjectives/nouns but I'll leave it at that. Let me cut it short, you will feel every emotion the characters are feeling! I don't even know how that is possible but it is with this book.

Medieval times and the modern world crash together in beautiful harmony, this book will move you..Buy it, read it,I guarantee you will not regret it.

I enjoyed the book overall. Her going back in time and him not remembering her was a little long. The ending was so corny but satisfying at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Page Turner. July 8 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The beginning of this story is terrific. Of course, every woman's fantasy is to have a knight in shining armor, so the story's idea is beautiful. The setup read is quick, heavenly, humorous, and fun! Then the author makes a fumble.
Dougless Montgomery is a modern day woman, but a weak individual. She allows people to walk all over her. She is trying to hold onto a wretched man - a wretched man with a wretched daughter. In a rare moment of strength Dougless disagrees with the obnoxious daughter. The result - Dougless is left behind -- stranded in the English countryside. Heartbroken Dougless breaks down in tears and cries out for a knight in shining armor - presto, Nicholas Stafford, a knight from the sixteenth century appears.
Now Deveraux has great fun with her reader. We explore the twentieth century with Nicholas. Dougless may be a reluctant guide but she is hooked -- hooked on this adorable, handsome man. Of course, Nicholas and Dougless fall deeply in love - a love that has dire consequences. These consequences force our lovers back to the sixteenth century.
Now the reader explores Tudor England with the twosome; however, this exploration is not nearly as amusing. Nicholas Stafford does not remember their initial attraction and the couple is forced to begin anew. The results? The reading becomes long. Nicholas' denial grows tiresome. When our duo again finds love, Deveraux also takes control. The author now writes some of most romantic words I have ever read -- sigh! Yet this is not a happily-ever-after story. Dougless and Nicholas do not remain together. Deveraux chooses another romance path? Nicholas dies in the sixteenth century and Dougless returns to her time. Still Deveraux does manage to convince her reader -- every woman needs a knight in shining armor!
This review is based on the rewrite of the original book published in 1989.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best. June 8 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A few years ago my friend started describing "the best romance novel she'd ever read" to me. About the time she got to the girl bathing in a fountain, I tuned out. However, a few weeks after that I was at a used bookstore and lo and behold, it was sitting there right at eye-level, beckoning me. I reluctantly bought it and stayed up the entire night finishing it. I love this book and now own the original paperback as well as the revised hardback. I re-read it at least once a year and it never turns sappy on me, like most in the romance genre do. The characters are lovable and have a certain depth about them. The fact that the ending isn't predictable is a big selling point and anyone thinking of delving into a little romance this summer (or winter, depending on where you are) this is a wonderful starting point. It got me hooked and I display it proudly on my bookshelf. Be warned that there are some rather intense sex scenes so if that makes you uncomfortable, you might want to avoid this for something a bit milder. This isn't a trashy book and there is an actual STORY. I love this book and you will too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning - Bad Book Alert March 5 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Knight in Shining Armor was my first Jude Deveraux novel. After completing it, I find myself hesitant to ever pick up another novel of hers.

I don't understand the hype surrounding this book. It's plain old bad. It's a poorly written romance filled with cringe-worthy plot holes. The main character Douglas is so incredibly insecure and needy, it's often sickening. And even that could be forgiven if she had some sort of chemistry with Nicholas, but it's just not there.

Also, Nicholas, whose supposed to be a knight in shining armor, is a poor excuse for a man. He's constantly fooling around with other women! And Douglas is constantly chasing him, practically begging him to love her.

Not to mention halfway through the book something happens and the whole story starts over again.

In short, I don't recommend this book at all. It's a headache. It's a door stopper. It's fire wood. But it's not literature.
