I could not find the actual edition I have, but this book is one of the first romances I really read, when I was an impressionable pre-teen, and it pretty much made me fall in love with the genre. I recently reread it-and it holds up pretty well. It is a fun and sweet story with time travel and witty repartee.

I really liked this one. Good characters and a good love story.

This time travel is uniquely sad, suspenseful and romantic. I generally am not a fan of romantic stories but when my previous brother-in-law read this one because his mother and sister kept raving about it I had to check it out. I like many others, have read this book more than once and have loaned it numerous times over the years. One of those I had to have my own copy!

I was never interested in reading romance novels but this book was recommended to me by a good friend so I read it. I am so glad I did because it is one of my most favorite books.

Best love story I ever read. It's also the first adult romance I ever read :) Beautiful beautiful tale about a woman named Dougless who is abandoned in England and down on her luck and is saved by a literal knight that has somehow timetraveled into the present. Some comedy ensues, as Dougless thinks the man is crazy by claiming he IS from the past and has a little trouble understanding the modern day world.... but eventually the two fall in love......the ending is so heartbreaking though, it's not exactly your typical "happily ever after" ending.

This book is one of my all time favorites and the first Jude Deveraux book that I ever read. I have since read it like 20 times. I was never really satisfied with the ending but the story and romance is so great that I overlook that.

Possible SpoilersDouglass Montgomery is vacationing in England with her boyfriend/housemate Robert and his spoiled teenage daughter Gloria. The expected romantic vacation has been full of unexpected surprises including Gloria, the lack of an engagement ring, and the fact that Robert expected Douglass to pay half of all expenses. The three stop at an old cemetery and before Douglas realizes, Robert and Gloria have driven off with her, purse, money, and passport leaving Douglass to fend for herself. Inside the church, Douglas kneels at the base of an ancient tomb and cries for help. Suddenly a man dressed as a knight, armor included, introduces himself as Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck. Much to her dismay, he claims to be from the sixteenth century.Douglass and Nicolas lead each other on a merry chase. First, in modern day England where Douglass hopes to meet back up with Robert and later in the Elizabethan sixteenth century where Douglas attempts to prevent Nicolas from losing his head.I read the original shortly after its first publication in 1989, and since it’s been a while, I did not notice a difference in this 2002 version. Ms. Deveraux states in accompanying author’s notes that she has made several changes in the new edition. I enjoyed both editions. I like her historicals and the way she includes items about the everyday lives of her characters. I also know that if I need a good laugh Ms. Deveraux is more than able to provide me with one. This work has a something for everyone; romance, history, contemporary lifestyle, suspense, time-travel, and humor.
