    "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!

    "Absolutely Brilliant"

    Never thought I would like a story that undulated in between different times and yet I find myself in a trans. The book is so well written that you can not but to completely melt into the characters. The story takes over and becomes real to the point where you question your own world around you. What if?... I sit here, just having finished the book, in numbing wonder. Purchase this book knowing it will forever leave the most pleasant imprint in your heart and mind.

    "A Much Richer Story Than I Expected"

    This is a surprisingly good book. While it is technically a Romance, it is also a time travel fantasy. The story line is much richer and more interesting than I expected with a surprising ending. The characters are richly drawn, the narrator is good and I found myself listening to it more than once, a good sign in my case. I encourage you to give it a try.

    Story
    "God Awful Narator!!"
    What would have made A Knight in Shining Armor better?

    A better narator


    What other book might you compare A Knight in Shining Armor to and why?

    the Outlander Series because they both deal with time travel and love stories


    Would you be willing to try another one of Steve West’s performances?

    not in the form of a romance novel.


    What character would you cut from A Knight in Shining Armor?

    I wouldn't cut a single character but I would cut the narator.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read the actual hardcover book when it first came out and absolutely loved it! Finished it in 4 hours and have read it at least 4 times. Steve West made Douglas sound as whinny as Gloria. Total turn off. Let him stick to stories that do not involve female characters as he does not do them justice.This presentation made me pick up the book and read it for myself again I could not get through this story with the narator at all.

    "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

    "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
    "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.

    "Oh my gosh, I loved it."

    This was a wonderful book. I didn't stop till it was over. I haven't heard of this author but she's great. The reader was also wonderful.

    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.
