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.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No. The narrator did not do a great job with the herione. She came across very whiny. Also, the story attempted to make the herione out to be some sort of liberated woman, but it wasn't convincing.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Why did Nicolas forget everything when he returned but Douglas remembers? Why did Douglas come forward with her clothes but Nicolas came in his armor - I didn't think Nicolas was wearing armor in his jail cell. <br/><br/>Robert was just silly and completely unrealistic. Why would a liberated woman stay with him.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
I kept trying to imagine this as a movie but I don't think the story has enough depth for a movie.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Probably only to someone who reads all the time and likes this author
Would you recommend A Knight in Shining Armor to your friends? Why or why not?
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.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I've read and owned a lot of books in my years - the story was okay but this female had to be the weakest idiot I've ever read about!!!

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.

Well, I expected more. The ending is terrible. I actually had to check twice my player to understand that the book ended.... It felt like an abrupt paragraph... i find it very unbelievable, that a person ( male or female) that have just lost the love of their life would just as easily fall in love with a new slightly different version of it. All the crying of Douglas.... Bad and unrealistic at all. She is painted as such a weak character, that is half the time blind to all the crazy faults of other men, that in stead to liking her, I feel sorry for the poor stupid girl.... And if she is not stupid and blind, then she is such a "wedding chaser"... As if the most important thing in her life is to get married and never mind to what idiot. The love story is actually beautiful, but the ending leaves you with a bad taste and it's a pitty. The narration was fine, although I didn't like the female "voices" so much - too whinny for my taste. I've read several books by Jude Devaraux , and this is by far the worst. As I said - disappointing.....
