    Story
    "Time Travel and Everlasting Love"

    This book was probably written over 20 years ago, but it still resonates as an overall heartwarming, captivating time travel love story.
    The first part of the story really aggravated me as the heroine was treated so badly and was being blatantly used her by current lover. Nobody could be that blind! His bratty daughter was the icing on the cake and I almost gave up on this book because of how they walked all over her. But once the time traveling hero appeared, I couldn't stop listening to it.
    Ms. Deveraux did her research on medieval life and did a great job on how a 16th century man would see 20th century England and vice versa with the heroine.
    The author takes you on a great journey with the hero/heroine, across 4 centuries. Douglass, the heroine manages to find love twice, as well as self-respect by the end of the novel. The ending was not what I expected, but was just delightful and heart-warming. A thoroughly enjoyable 16 hours of listening pleasure!

    "This is such an awesome story!"

    For fans of Jude Deveraux, this is a classic. It's one of the best time travel/romances out there. I read this many years ago, and was delighted to see it in audio. I just wasn't all that fond of the male narrator. He did a pretty good job, but there's just something about a male narrator trying to pull off a crying woman's voice that just makes it sound... well, whiny and cheesy.

    But despite that, I listened to the story practically straight through. I had forgotten the awesome ending! I just loved it. Entertaining and endearing.

    Now, hopefully Remembrance (my favorite Deveraux's time-travel romance novel) will come out in unabridged audio. I'd hope for that story, the publisher will chose a woman to narrate. It just makes it that much more believable. Justine Eyre would be great for that story!

    I'll continue to wait for more vintage Deveraux...

    Story
    "Still one of my favorite romance novels"
    Would you listen to A Knight in Shining Armor again? Why?

    Absolutely. When I saw this unabridged I purchased it immediately. Great narration, and a great romance.


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

    There are quite a few moments, but I think my favorite is when the Heroine finally stands up for herself and realizes her worth.


    Have you listened to any of Steve West’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not. His performance was worth listening to again.


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

    I laughed and cried. Just like I did the first time I read this. The heroine is a bit annoying at times but anyone who has had a low self-esteem can understand where she comes from. She is not stupid so much as blinded by her lack of self worth. The book is more about her growth as a person and her acceptance of who she is to herself. Nicholas is still one of my favorite hero's. He was be a bit obnoxious and I wish there was more time spent inside his head, but he was strong and had a true sense of himself. So happy this book is on Audible now if only Judith McNaught's books would be released...


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the credit and will be listening to this again.

    "Love this author- one of my favorites."
    Where does A Knight in Shining Armor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This narrator is much better than the abridged version and so much more makes sense. This is one of my favorite easy listen stories- don't need to follow closely so can listen and multi-task.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Narrator did a great job.


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

    Since the book was based on a Man's life he brings the masculinity to the story.

    "PURE MAGIC!"

    A very nice story, many romantic scenes well balanced between romance and sensuality. If you (like me) have read the book I'm sure you will love listening to it. A jude Deveraux can't be bad, she just knows how to capture hers listeners and a time-travel romance is always entertaining.
    The only negative point was the narrator, his voice is perfect for a male character but terrible for the female. I can't understand why audio-books don't have a man reading the male characters and a woman for the female, it would be much more pleasant for the listeners.
    Worth a credit!

    "I have been waiting for this"

    This has to be the best book Jude has written. Cried through most of the book when I read it years ago. Didn't like the abridged version at all, but this is sooo much better. Maybe a different narrator, female, would have been better, but I will take it. I never buy abridged books, in any format. Very long time coming, now some of the other books in the Montgomery line should come next, please... female readers, though.
