A Knight in Shining Armor
Jude Deveraux's beloved bestseller has captivated readers the world over; now in a special edition featuring new material, this timeless love story greets a new generation. Abandoned by her lover, thoroughly modern Dougless Montgomery finds herself alone and brokenhearted in an old English church. She never dreamed that a love more powerful than time awaited her there...until Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck, a sixteenth-century knight, appeared. Drawn to him by a bond so sudden and compelling that it defied reason, Dougless knew that Nicholas was nothing less than a miracle: a man who would not seek to change her, who found her perfect just as she was. But she could not know how strong were the chains that tied them to the past -- or the grand adventure that lay before them.
Now in paperback, Jude Deveraux’s greatest bestseller and “ultimate romance reader’s fantasy that will capture your heart, make you laugh, cry, and wish this could come true” (Romantic Times).
Through a series of unforeseen circumstances, Dougless Montgomery found herself abandoned in England with no money and no passport. She knew that what she needed was a Knight in Shining Armor—only she hadn’t counted on Lord Nicholas Stafford appearing. His last memory was of being in the sixteenth century and facing his execution. If Dougless can get him to stop calling her a witch, she needs to help him prove his innocence. Together they learn of each other’s worlds and along the way they discover a love that transcends time.
From today’s most admired storyteller, here is an unforgettable tale of a most miraculous love affair: a meeting of passion, wit, and true romance between a thoroughly modern woman—and a man who lived four hundred years before.
