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
Hailed worldwide as one of the most romantic novels of all time, Jude Deveraux's dazzling best seller "will capture your heart - and hold it" (Daily Herald, Chicago) with its breathtaking tale of lovely Dougless Montgomery; her savior knight, Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck; and the timeless adventure of passion and memory, danger and desire that sweeps them into each other's arms.

"A glorious love story that spans centuries, worlds, and souls.... A Knight in Shining Armor will capture your heart - and hold it. (Chicago Daily Herald)
"Rare and simply delightful...poignant, sensual.... This unique story will capture your heart, make you laugh, cry, and wish this could come true." (Romantic Times)
"A well-plotted book with a very attractive hero and a lot of charm." (The Washington Post)
I love romance, MG, and YA books.
Angsty and delicious.
Steve West has a great voice, but I had to turn the reading speed up because he reads very slow and precisely. I loved his accent.
Once we get to the hero - Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck - the story picks up quite a bit.
I read this book when I was in the 8th grade 2x...I'm now 40 and decided to try audibles. Steve West brought this book to life and ensued the same feelings I had as a young girl. Happiness sadness and believing in true love. Jude Devereaux will always be one of my number 1 authors. What an amazing story and narrator.
I read this book years ago and it stuck with me over the years, so much that I wrote a poem called my night in shining armor. I just listened to it and fell in love with it all over again. Love love love this book!!!!
I would've liked the book more if she hadn't of been so much of a cry baby. She cried every other page, it took forever to finish this book. Her character voice didn't help either actually made it worse
I just started listening to books by Audible a year ago. My favorites, historical fiction, romance, christian fiction.
I rank this audiobook at the top. Steve West does a fabulous job!
The storyline is wonderful. Jude Deveraux writes as I was listening, finding myself thinking the same thing!!! What I liked best about this story is, how the characters realized their short comings and failures, then turned them around. Of course the love between the characters will light a fire in your loins!!
I like all the scenes!!
This book is one I wish I could listen to all in one sitting!! I almost did!
As a christian, I especially loved the references to God. Very touching. I would like to think God is still working in ways that bring the right people together. Being widowed, looking for my end of life partner, this book made me realize I could have appreciated my husband a little bit more. I'm hoping I will have a "second" chance!
I rate 5 (Loved it!) 4 (Really liked it!) 3 (Liked it!) 2 (Didn't really like it!) 1 (Hated it!) I never rate a book before I finish it!
The story was good and the narrator was too! I used to read Jude years ago, but this was my first audible book by her and the narrator. I will definitely look for more.
I believe books transport you to worlds only imaginable in your wildest dreams! I also enjoy self-help books. I love books!!!!
I love, love, love this book. The story is as vivid and amazing as when I first read it 20+ years ago. It actually made me cry at the love that Douglass and Nicholas shared. I loved Steve West's narration; I just wished that Douglass' voice would have been done by a female. Still was a great narration and the story was brought to life beautifully!
I read this book about once every couple of years. This is the first time I listened to it. The narrator was a little hard to understand for this Texas girl but I eventually could understand what he was saying. This is a must own!!
