New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux will capture your heart with signature classic novel, 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).
According to PW , ``plodding, graceless prose'' undermines this romantic historical fantasy. Twentieth-century heroine Dougless Montgomery, an American heiress, falls in love with a reincarnated Elizabethan nobleman unjustly convicted of treason, who is back from the dead to clear his reputation.

Tissues are a must
I absolutely loved this book. What a wonderful love story. You will laugh and cry and fall in love with Nicholas and Douglass. I read it in 2 days. So sad to see the story end!!!!!
I wanted to love this book
I like it... I was so engrossed in the story that I couldn’t put this book down for days! But the ending left me feeling as empty and broken-hearted as Dougless in the first few chapters. No spoilers.... but the ending just wasn’t satisfying for me. At the very least I would have enjoyed an epilogue.
