A Knight in Shining Armor (Montgomery/Taggart)
A Knight in Shining Armor - Montgomery/Taggart Author:Jude Deveraux Abandoned by a cruel fate, lovely, thoroughly modern Dougless Montgomery lay weeping upon a cold tombstone in an English church. Suddenly, as if in answer to her prayers, the most extraordinary man appeared. — He was Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck...and according to his tombstone he had died in 1564. Tall, broad of shoulder, attired in glea... more »ming silver and gold, he was magnificent. Drawn to his side by a bond so sudden and compelling it overshadowed reason, Dougless knew that Nicholas was nothing less than a miracle: a man who would not seek to change her, who found her perfect, fascinating, just as she was.
Yet she could not imagine how strong were the chains that tied them to the past...or the grand adventure that lay before them....« less
When I first saw this book on the bookshelves, I thought to myself, "Oh, brother!!! What a hokey, typical name for a romance story!!!" Fortunately, though, despite my thoughts to the contrary, I decided to pick it up and see just how "hokey" it really was!
Well, suffice it to say, I was hooked within the first few pages, and believe me, I have gotten sick of sanguine, la-de-dah romance novels and wanted something with more subtance, but this one had it all, and I just loved it.
I've read it a couple of times in my life, as it was so satisfying and well written. Years passed and I forgot about this book until one day I hooked up with an old friend, and we both remembered when we shared this book with each other, and I suddenly wondered where my copy of "A Knight in Shining Armor" had gone to. I searched all through my books, and couldn't find it anywhere! I had to have this quintissential romance/time travel book, so I searched on ebay, and behold, there it was! I re-ordered it, and now plan to keep this in permanent residence in my home.
A wonderful, enjoyable trip through time and a love that never dies!
A great time travel book about an American woman stranded alone in England in 1988 and a knight from the 1500's who mysteriously appears always when the woman is in distress. Enjoyable, great romance, mystery and picture of the times in 1500's England. Not overdone on sex. Worth the read.
BOok was entertaining, but had one of the most annoying heroines ever. She lets men run all over her and falls in love easily. This is another story about the Montgomerys, but she doesn't seem to be a part of the family at all.

If you only read one book by Jude Deveraux, this is the one to read! Over the years I have re-read this book several times. This is a real "keeper." I am only offering this to swap as I have other copies of the book!
This book is one of THE best stories I've ever read in my life. Its so awesome and so well written. Lots of parts in this story made me teary eyed or sitting at the edge of my seat. Truly an unforgettable story to me.
