A Knight in Shining Armor

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.

But she could not know how strong were the chains that tied them to the past -- or the grand adventure that lay before them.
