    Story
    "Now that I'm older the heroine is a little..."

    annoying... I remember reading this book when I was a teenager and I absolutely loved it. It was romantic and I truly enjoyed the time travel aspect of it.

    However, revisiting this book in my late twenties I can't find anything relatable about the main character Douglass. Call it growing up and coming into my own but I found Douglass to be frustrating to no end. This woman cries way too much to be believable. She spends a lot of time being trampled on and crying about it. I wanted her to have some backbone and to stop falling apart emotionally every time things didn't go her way or someone said something out of the way to her. I'm surprised the woman wasn't dehydrated by the end of the book with the amount of crying she did.

    Additionally, it is a little dated for the modern reader/listener which was a little bit of a turn off but overall I enjoyed the actual plot of the book. If you can get past the weak "onion eyed" heroine then by all means, but I can't say I'd recommend this book for anyone who is easily annoyed by an overly sensitive leading lady who doesn't seem to overcome her crying until...wait she never over comes it, nevermind.

    "In awe"

    The narrator was great, voice was calm and I felt connected to the story. This book was amazing and beyond what I was expecting. I love romance and time travel too. This book will be in my top 10 of all time... I think I'm going to read it again!!

    "Loved this Book!"
    Any additional comments?

    I found this book title on a list of the 10 best historical romances, a list that included Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice! I immediately bought the audio book and found upon listening that I had read the book before. I loved Steve West's performance. It made a book that I slightly remembered into one that I will not forget. It WAS a fantastic story!

    "Awesome!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, it is great, interesting story, great reader


    What did you like best about this story?

    Keeps you entertained, Ms Deveraux's books can be a little too long but this one in particular just keeps you glued to the story


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of them where the two main characters are trying to get to know each other but don't say all that's on their mind


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but that's impossible, toooooo long

    Story
    "Not your typical romance read..."
    If you could sum up A Knight in Shining Armor in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining
    Captivating
    Evocative


    What about Steve West’s performance did you like?

    Clear voice, good dramatization.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of it does in different ways. The story is very real, one that so many of us can relate to. But the ending is the clincher.


    Any additional comments?

    Had read this book years ago and saw it on audible and wanted to revisit it. What a fantastic story. Good escape, lots of laughs, but the content is substantial. Five stars Deveraux!
