A Knight in Shining Armor eBook by Jude Deveraux | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster
Love me, love my kid. Everyone I know loved it. Along the way, and somewhat surprisingly, they fall in love and then Nicholas is yanked back into his own century. She travels back to her time while he spends the rest of his life alone! It was the first time I realized just how compelling a “lovable loser” heroine could be. However, I loved that Nicholas was able to feel what Dougless felt and vice versa.

May 25, Sandes gii rated it it was amazing Shelves: So many scenes I had to put the book down and wipe my tears. Everything was there, as wonderful as it was and yet somehow better. It’s a love story and one of my all time favorites.
I for one, loved it. ceveraux
Once I discovered the gay romance explosion, I devoured everything I could grab. But the ending here was different and a matter of some minor controversy. The deception behind Nicholas’s legacy was fantastic.

I couldn’t hardly put it down. View shinning 3 comments. Dougless clenched her fists, closed her eyes, and counted to ten. They become friends in need and build a relationship that grows stronger and stronger with each passing day.
Highly recommended for lovers of historical romance! The only criticism I have was the lack of an epilogue to show how our couple fared in life. This was also the period in my life when I shut off the internet for a year and wrote like the devil.

Abandoned by a cruel fate, lovely Dougless Montgomery lies weeping upon a cold tombstone in an English church. One of my all-time favorite books! You can ask almost anyone who saw me at RT how I got all bubbly and stupid giddy whenever I talked about meeting her. Jude has also stepped outside her milieu, with mixed results.

Several Saturday nights Dougless had stayed at the house she shared with Robert, babysitting Gloria while he went to professional functions, usually cocktail parties or kude. I find now that I cannot. I put it away instead. After reading the first 25 pages, I was back on Amazon looking at the reviews to see if I’d missed something. They had “memories” of past events, but only what they felt about the other person.
Dougless had tried to like Gloria. The story was fun. I guess I expected too much after the well-crafted and beautifully written work of Gabaldon and Donati; this is simply another third-rate romance. In their journey, they consumate their love, but in the process, Nicholas is taken edveraux to his proper time. His behavior and blatant use of every good thing Dougless gave him was despicable. A day and age in which many women were not as adventurous a we are in today’s world. I wanted to give this book four stars so badly.
The same knught of people had been rehashing history what appeared to be every generation. The reincarnation, the souls trying to find each other all these years, searching, the message s that were left behind had me grabbing the tissues.
If I could only have ten books to read for the rest of my life, I would want this to be one of them. Sad ending, heroine with no backbone. The low ratings tell a different story: From here, it was Douglass’ turn to return to Nicholas in the past, but when she arrived, he does not remember her.
But every time Dougless said something like that to Robert, she ended up apologizing. The best part of the book for me was the author’s note. How she allowed Robert and Gloria to walk all over her, her thoughts, how she behaved.
I kept coming up with reasons to put it off, until yesterday the high school girl got very tired of me and I was reading.
