This book stands on it's on. I've read some shocking reviews in which they trash the book saying the heroine is whiny but what must be remembered is that this book was written in 1989. A day and age in which many women were not as adventurous a we are in today's world. Honestly, if any of us were thrown back in time to the 1600s I imagine that we might be rather whiny indeed. It's a love story and one of my all time favorites. I hope you take the opportunity to read it. Everyone I know loved it.(less)

Mr. Darcy who? Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck is a knight in shining armor. Literally.

This book contains two of my favorite things- time travel and dashing British lords.

A Knight in Shining Armor is both hilarious and tragic. It's a really, really good book. So why the three stars? You know that feeling when you read a book and you can't stop thinking about it? Well, that didn't happen to me. I wanted to give this book four stars so badly. I had to force myself to click on the third sta

This is the very first romance book, which made me smile, laugh and cry. Read it three times and decided that I had to have it for myself. So now, it is sitting very nicely in my book cabinet, beckoning me to read it again for I-don't-know-how-many times.

I must say, this is best book of all by Jude Deveraux. About time-travel romance, finding and recognizing true love even if its separated by decades of time. So, you will get to read about Nicholas realising his true love in Douglass's modern t

This is my all time favorite romance novel, which I've read more than once (the last time being this past weekend).

Nicholas is a real live Knight in Shining Armor sent to comfort a heartbroken Douglass in 1988. Destined to be soul mates through all eternity, the two set out to clear Lord Nicholas' name and right the wrongs done during his Elizabethan life. Just as he gets used to the weird inventions and strangness of the twentieth century, they are whisked back through time to 1560 where Dougl

I'm not totally sure what to say about this one or how to rate it. It is fair to say I enjoyed it despite the fact that it was riddled with flaws. It was a fairly fun time travel romance that was just light enough in tone to be fun.

The story was fun. Dougless Montgomery is abandoned by her wastrel boyfriend in a church in rural England after their holiday went bad and prays for a knight in shining armor to save her. She gets that knight in the form of 15th century earl, Lord Nicholas Stafford.
I read it first when it came out back in the late 80's and have re read it so many times with each read just as fantastic.

Its one of those books that impact you and stays with you forever. Love or hate the ending- it is a romance must read.

Recommended to Heidi by: my high school music teacher

In 1990 I was a senior in high school, and I was friends with my music teacher. It was one of those odd things I never understood how it happened, though I think it started when the drama teacher cast me for the lead in Fiddler on the Roof but I couldn’t sing. (That’s a long, weird story. Don’t ask.) She was charged with fixing that minor detail, which led to a lot of before and after school private lessons. At this point of my life things were starting to come seriously apart. I’d weathered som

What a remarkably beautiful story! I loved this, even despite the somewhat controversial ending, I really loved this. When poor, down on her luck, Dougless Montgomery gets jilted by her boyfriend and left to fend for herself in rural England, at a church no less, she accidentally summons Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck. The fact that he happens to be a knight sent from sixteenth century England baffles the both of them. She cried for a knight in shining armor, she prayed to be give

Recommends it for: Readers who like time travel with a heart-wrenching twist
I’ve been told by just about every reader who’s read this «romance classic» that it’s a sad story and a very upsetting one at that because of the ending, well I have to strongly disagree. It’s exceptionally moving and my hat’s off to the author for thinking out of the romance box for once. That said, I love a good heart-wrenching cry and a tragic story –and I’m not saying this one is or isn’t because I really think it depends on what you expect out of a romance novel. If you’re on the side that ...more

I first read this book in the 80's and it became my most favorite book. It captured my heart with the romantic story of Dougless Montgomery and Nicholas Stafford, the EArl of Thornwyck. He was magnificent. He had humor, curiosity and belief in the almost impossible truth.

This was my first Jude Deveraux book and I became obsessed with reading all of her books in an attempt to capture that feeling again.

This is a time travel book that touched my heart and made me believe too that there was someo
