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 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 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!
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.
This story touched my heart! Twists, turns, love, romance, and THE perfect ending. Need I say more?
didn't read the print version
I enjoyed this love story and cried so hard at the end. what a terrific story of lasting love.
you will be so glad you listened to this book
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.
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.
I would have made my lead a little less whimpy.
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.
Probably only to someone who reads all the time and likes this author
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.
Love a good romance
One of the best I have read so far would make a great movie a step up from Somewhere In Time
At the end will say no more
too many to list
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
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
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.
"my soul will find yours"
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.
this one makes you get a tissue
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.
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!
"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.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
