You think your there. It goes to the past and to the present and to the past and is soooo smooth in doing so. I love it and have re-read it several times! Awesome

One of the best books i’ve read

This book is amazing. I grew up reading a lot of historical romance books (that i should not have been reading at that young of an age) and i remember this was one of the first ones i read. I recently bought my own copy and read it again and let me tell you it was the first time in YEARS that a book made me laugh, cry, and thoroughly just enjoy reading. If you’re not that into time travel or historical romance books then this will at least be the only one you like. A beautiful yet sad and amazing story told perfectly.

Great Book!

This book got me reading again. The romance was outstanding. I love this book. It made me cry from happiness and sadness. If you don't like a book like that, quit reading! On a scale of 1-10 I give this book an 11 in my opinion. It is in my library forever now. :)

5 Stars all the way

I was iffy about reading a time travel. If you've ever read one and you couldn't bring yourself to like it, you must try this one. It puts all others to shame. You'll never forget this story. Ask anyone who's read it. You shouldn't miss reading this book at least one time in your life. You'll read it and try your best to get your friends to read it too. My friends loved it and so did their friends.

What a Fantastic Book!

Although this book has been out for 5 years I just learned about it and picked it up in my local book store. It is one of the best books I've read in a long time.Dougless Montgomery comes from the famous Montgomery family. She met a successful doctor, Robert, who doesn't want a commitment, however, Dougless and Robert decide to plan a trip to England a year from the day the move in together. Then, they will decide if they want to marry. On their way to the airport for their long awaited trip to England, Robert says he has a surprise for Dougless. At the airport, her dreams are squashed when Robert's daughter Gloria shows up and she turns out to be a most obnoxious child that Robert indulges sinfully.While the three of them are visiting a church, Dougless and Gloria get into an argument. Robert, of course, sides with his daughter and they leave Dougless stranded at the church in the country without her money or passport. Douglass goes into the church and cries on the tomb of Nicholas Stafford, the Earl of Thornwyck. Suddenly he appears out of sixteenth century England. At first Douglass doesn't believe that he's from the sixteenth century. She finds his way of dress strange, his talk ridiculous and the fact that he doesn't know what a car is or how to use the bathroom is strange as well. Eventually Nicholas convinces Douglass and the two set to finding out who set Nicholas up for treason in Elizabethan times. Finding no answers, Nicholas resigns himself to stay in the 20th century and acknowledges that Douglass is the love of his life. Suddenly Nicholas is taken back in time. Douglass is at a loss, but she is determined to find the answers to clear his name. Then Douglass is taken back in time to 1560 and finds herself at Nicholas's home, although Nicholas does not remember her. Douglass must win over Nicholas's trust to change history again, knowing that once it is changed she will be dragged back to the twentieth century.

I have copies of this book everywhere I go

Knight in Shining Armor is without any doubt the best romance I have ever read, time travel not whithstanding. I could totally relate to this modern day heroine's difficulty in dealing with dating a man with a spoiled child (my husband had three). She smolders while he puts said child's wishes first (hmmmmm, so true and familiar lol). Then the book really takes off as she is basically abandoned by her boyfriend and is weeping in an ancient church. Here comes the knight, Nicholas. From that page on the book is often side-clutchingly laugh-out-loud as Dougless the heroine tries to help her bewildered time traveler make his way through the modern world to try to return to his own and redress some family wrongs that were part of history. The ending is very surprising, and I was more than satisfied with it. So laugh, cry, (well, Dougless does that rather a lot and it IS said to rid the body of toxins) and just don't plan anything for a while if you are a slow reader. :)
