    "Well worth the wait!"

    I have waited for YEARS for an unabridged version of this book to be produced and had begun to give up hope. With all the mediocre books being recorded at a dizzying rate these days it seems many great earlier works by authors are not prioritized. Thank the romance gods that this classic has been given its due. The narration is magnificent and the story still breathtakingly beautiful. If you have read the story I can assure you that it is even more wonderful in audio, if not, please DO NOT MISS one of the best romance novels ever written!

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    Story
    "Kept Me Interested"

    This is my first J Deveraux book. The begining was hard to put up with. I hated for the heroine to be so weak of character. However, as the story progressed, I was able to experience her change step by step until she became a strong and confident woman. This is a story of hope and love that surpasses all barriers of time. I also enjoyed the small bits of historical fact regarding everyday living in Elizabethan times. I usually like a bit more spice in the books I listen to but there was enough to make the book a good listen. For a time travel story, it was an enjoyable one. I'll probably be buying more Deveraux novels.

    Story
    "A MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR FOR ANY ROMANCE LOVERS"

    This is one of those books that I loved and hated all at the same time - my dilemma is based purely on the heroine's personality she was soooooo incredibly stupid, boring and weak and certainly didn't deserve her handsome Knight in shining armour.

    But at the same time it was romantic, funny, touching and sad and it will have you guessing how it will end - which was a real surprise .... I kept thinking "any minute now" but I just didn't see that one comming.

    Worth a credit? It seemed more YA but thoroughly enjoyable for us romantics - so it's a YES from me.

    Story
    "Story idea great, actual story lacking."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The female lead was a little too stupid and whimpy for my taste. Although she toughen up a little towards the end, I found it hard to care what happened to her cause she was so stupid. I would have made her stronger with just a series of circumstances that ended her up where she was, not her being stupid and letting people walk on her.


    What could Jude Deveraux have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I would have made my lead a little less whimpy.


    What about Steve West’s performance did you like?

    Steve West's voice is perfect for this type of story. He did a great job with the characters. It was by far my favorite part of the book, listening to him.

    Story
    "Not my favorite Jude Deveraux"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Probably only to someone who reads all the time and likes this author


    Would you recommend A Knight in Shining Armor to your friends? Why or why not?

    I read great reviews and love this author so was excited to listen to it. I travel a lot for work so go through at least 2 audio books a week. This was a fun read but there are other time travel books I have enjoyed more and this was not up to par with many other of Dude Deveraux's books. I am in the minority on this however. Many people rave about it so I would say listen for yourself and decide.

    "Awesome romance,love that travels through time"
    Where does A Knight in Shining Armor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best I have read so far would make a great movie a step up from Somewhere In Time


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Knight in Shining Armor?

    At the end will say no more


    Which scene was your favorite?

    too many to list


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must if you are into romance the only down was although the narrator was great with mens voices I had to really get over him with womens voices not good

    Story
    "A Classic must hear, finally full version"
    Would you listen to A Knight in Shining Armor again? Why?

    yes, this is ms Garwood famous classic. Yes, our heroine comes off weak, but our hero more than makes up for it. Ms Garwoods earlier writings were what made her famous.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Knight in Shining Armor?

    "my soul will find yours"


    What does Steve West bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    All Garwood or Core romance readers have read the book. Mr West, just brings this story to life as listeners like to hear it, not just read it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    this one makes you get a tissue


    Any additional comments?

    Many core readers have kept this book and have been waiting for a good reader in the unabridged version. If only Audible could get Judith McNaught unabridged works or Kathleen Woodiwess. Such a shame the core classics are being missed.

    "Could not stop listening"

    What a great story! After reading the reviews I had to listen to this, and was not disappointed! I thought it would last me two weeks of my commute, but had to finish the second half in 2 days to see what happened. Would recommend to anyone who relishes a great love story!

    Story
    "Not her Best."

    My first impression after 50mins into this book is that Douglas is either very very stupid or likes being a doormat, cause apparently she not only lets her family mock her and walk all over her but also the man she deems perfect marriage material. She has medieval coins in her hand and can’t tell the difference between medieval coins and normal everyday coins. She’s supposed to be a school teacher!! How can you not tell? The first this about being a teacher is that you’re curious about everything! She just gives the coins for train fair without even giving them a second glance. I mean seriously, you’re in a new country wouldn’t you look at your coins carefully to see that you have exact fare. Even though you’re a teacher in the US you do learn about English currency and wouldn’t any teacher look at the coins to see if they are the same as the ones in the pictures from the time she taught. She is seriously being airheaded. I despise the author for creating such a character. A disgrace to the female kind. I love JD's other titles but this short of turning my stomach.
