A time-travel romance featuring a present-day heroine and a dashing hero from the sixteenth century! Abandoned by a cruel fate, lovely Dougless Montgomery lies weeping upon a cold tombstone in an English church. Suddenly, the most extraordinary man appears. It is Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck...and according to his tombstone he died in 1564. Drawn to his side by a bond so sudden and compelling it overshadows reason, Dougless knows that Nicholas is nothing less than a miracle: a man who does not seek to change her, who finds her perfect, fascinating, just as she is. What Dougless never imagined was how strong the chains are that tie them to the past...or the grand adventure that lay before them. Hailed worldwide as one of the most romantic novels of all time, A Knight in Shining Armor is "a glorious love story that spans centuries, worlds, and souls. It is the epitome of every woman's fantasy" (Chicago Daily Herald).

Reviews

In her hardcover debut, Deveraux ( The Taming ) offers an imaginative romantic historical fantasy, whose virtue of unpredictabiity is undermined by plodding, graceless prose. Vacationing in England with her lover, Robert, and his spoiled teenage daughter, heroine Dougless Montgomery is abandoned by them in a remote country churchyard near the tomb of Nicholas Stafford, an earl who died in 1564. Almost immediately, an armor-clad swashbuckler materializes--Nicholas himself, reincarnated in the 20th century to clear his reputation, having been unjustly convicted of treason. Intrigued by his plight, Dougless agrees to help Nicholas learn his accuser's identity and restore his good name. They become lovers, and their adventures briefly lead Dougless back to the 1560s, allowing Deveraux to portray that period from a contemporary woman's perspective, as well as 1988 through the eyes of a confounded Elizabethan nobleman. Well-detailed historical highlights and a heartwarming conclusion will enhance the novel's commercial appeal to those Deveraux fans willing to lay out the extra cash for froth bound in hardcover. Doubleday Book Club main selection; Literary Guild alternate. (Aug.)

What a beautiful, time-travelling romance that's wonderfully written by an extraordinary author! While I'm still trying to accept the unexpected ending, I'd still HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book to all lovers of time-travel romances. It's one of those stories that is unforgettable and the characters live on in your memory and heart, long after you've put the book down. This author is quickly becoming one of my favourites......

Awesome book. Definitly the read for a 21st century woman that is missing some magic and excitement in her life. Beautifully written with a great sense of humor. Makes you wish you were part of it all. Highly recommended. You wont be able to put it down. Take it in to the bath with a glass of wine. You might shrivel in there because you wont bother getting out :)
