In celebration of Pleasure Me, I wanted to share one more historical with you.This book has been on my keeper shelf for more than twenty years. I’ve always read romance, but this book has stuck with me for some reason. I have memories of certain scenes, but no coherent  one unified plot other than it’s a time travel. 


In the late eighties, I had drifted away from reading romance all the time. I was living my own romance, newly married, enjoying the happiness that comes with being a newlywed. I hadn’t stopped reading, but  I’d become a huge fan of Steven King, discovered Frank Herbert and some other sci-fi writers. Then in 1989 I stumbled over this book by an author I’d never read by the name of Jude Deveraux. 

It was an interesting cover, and the blurb really caught my attention. Here was a story about a knight being teleported to the future and falling in love with a contemporary heroine. Not to mention that the heroine goes back in time in a reversal of roles so to speak. 

 

Once upon a time…
…as a fair maiden lay weeping upon a cold tombstone, her heartfelt desire was suddenly made real before her: tall, broad of shoulder, attired in gleaming silver and gold, her knight in shining armor had come to rescue his damsel in distress….

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.

A Knight in Shining Armor was an incredible read. I can’t tell you why, because I read for the sheer pleasure of escaping my own somewhat drab existence. I live vicariously through the characters. I can’t dissect the books I read in the way a reviewer might, I don’t read romance like that. I think it’s why I don’t get some of the reviews that pull apart a book and talk about the why or hows of a character’s motivation.

For me a book (any kind) is about sucking me in and making me feel like I’m part of the world. I don’t care if there’s something a little off, if I love the characters, I’ll accept just about any action they do. 

I also believe that an author’s voice plays a large role in whether the reader loves a book. It’s not just about the story, it’s about how a reader relates to the way an author tells a story. It’s a style that people are drawn to. It’s why some people love certain authors and other people are meh about the same authors.


That’s what happened with me and Jude. I fell in love with her voice. Well that and the hero of A Knight in Shining Armor. I can still vividly see in my mind the hero sitting in his castle and he’s hearing the wailing of the heroine in the future, while he’s in the past.  I remember his experimenting with things in the bathroom. 


Deveraux’s voice lured me into her story and made me care about her characters. One reviewer referred to the book as fluff, well that’s fine with me. I love fluff, and this book sings to me. In fact, I think I’m going to pull it out again next week when I’ve finished Inferno’s Kiss, finished my RITA reads, and taken care of a major cleanup operation in my office. 


Today is the last official day of the Pleasure Me With Romance Blog event. I am thrilled that so many of you came out to read the wonderful blog posts of all the authors that popped in to visit here. I want to thank you for being so warm and welcoming to my guests. Your excitement and enthusiasm for this event has been evident from the get-go. In fact, this event exceeded even my expectations. The numbers for the event were terrific. I even gained quite a few followers! LOL

I am so grateful to all the authors for their generosity and their time. It’s not easy to write a blog post when you’re on deadline as so many of these women were. It’s also tough to pop in to chat with readers as they did. I loved watching the interaction on the blog, even though I had to limit myself to posts. 

Although this event was a LOT more work than I expected it to be, I don’t regret one minute of it. It’s been a blast, and after a couple of months, I might think about doing another one to celebrate the release of Inferno’s Kiss. NO PROMISES! LOL

So here it is March 1st, and Pleasure Me should be on the shelves! I hope you’ll go out and buy the book. I hope you’ll tell your friends to buy it if you love the book. Remember, if you can’t afford to buy the book, ask your library to order it for their readers. While budgets are being slashed, librarians will buy what readers ask for.

And don’t forget that I have a SPECIAL GUEST, Kat Martin, coming to visit tomorrow as well, along with some future guest authors in March. 

As for the Grand Prize and Second Prizes those will be announced tomorrow sometime probably late evening. I also know this post is a bit rambling, but I’m exhausted, the book’s not finished, Oldest is screaming about financial aid, Baby has entered that hellish stage of I’m a teenager, I’m now at a brand new job, I don’t know how to operate my DroidX yet (although I love it), and a whole slew of other personal things that have had me dancing on the edge. But then that’s what’s terrific about life, you can dance along the edge of the cliff, then something wonderful pulls you back from the abyss. 

This event did that for me. So thank you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Thank you ALL for coming and spending time here over the last six weeks. Many of you have emailed and said how much you enjoyed the event, and that makes me happy. It says my hard work and the hard work of my guests was well worth the effort.

  3. >And thank YOU for holding such an amazing event. It's been a fun month, and there's so much new material for me to delve into! (My TBR pile protests.)

    I completely remember reading A Knight in Shining Armor, because I picked it up at Borders one day on a whim, and then found myself looking up a few hours later, blinking like an owl. My entire focus was funneled into following the journey of Dougless and Nicholas, and I felt buoyed by it. I'm sure the staff was quite pleased to be hosting me that day, hehe.

    Congratulations on your new job, and enjoy your new phone. Life is crazy sometimes, but that's better than boring, right? πŸ™‚

  6. >Sheree, thank you for being here!

    Stephanie, So happy you had a good time

    Mariee, I can understand why you devoured Jude's books. She rawks!

    Cindy L, I'm so glad you enjoyed coming, and it's nice to know that others feel the way I do about enjoying books without figuring out why it works. *grin*

    Lindalou, Angry Birds is addicting. I'm almost done with level 15 of the second game. I have to hide the phone when I hear the DH coming when I'm supposed to be working. He knows I've been playing when I forget to mute the birds. LOL

    Estella, Glad you had fun.

    Robin K. Isn't it amazing how many authors there are to try??? Makes it hard for readers to choose, and hard for authors to make you want to try them. Word of mouth is the ONLY thing that's going to help an author these days short of writing a good book!

    Danielle, oh DO go to the library. It's a wonderful story. And I'm delighted you came by so often. I hope you enjoy Pleasure Me

    Chelsea B. Glad you enjoyed the event.

    Jane, I've not read Jude's contemporaries so I'm wondering if they're as good as her historicals. There are few contemp authors I like. Susan Elizabeth Phillips

    Louisa, I'm glad you'll continued to pop in to read the blog. I'm going to try and be better about blogging small posts. Writing something long is really time consuming, and writing books is more important. I'm excited about everyone reading Pleasure Me

    Artemis, thank you for the compliment. Getting emotionally invested in a book means its good! It's the kind of book you don't want to end. I try hard to make my books like that. I know I don't always succeed, but I try harder to make each of them like that.

    Vonda, so glad you found some new authors to read and thank you for the congrats. Do re-read AKISA Maybe that's a blog in the making!!!I'll have to think about it. Maybe a read a book feature once a month!

    Kris B, wondered where you were. LOL I never have really understood why Devereaux would name her heroine douglass, but I got used to it. LOL I hope you enjoy Pleasure Me

  7. >Congrats Monica on all the really fabulous reviews of Pleasure Me!! I can't wait to read about a virgin hero! And shame om me, I've never read A Knight In Shining Armor.

    It has been such a long time since I've read A Knight in Shining Armor that I don't recall the details. Must be time to re-read it again.

    Wonderful contest. Thank for all your time and effort. Thank you for introducing some new authors to be read.

  10. >Monica,

    You have been a trooper through this event. BRAVO! Thank you again for your generosity.

    I'm just like you when it comes to reading a book. It's the author's voice that draws me. Although, I have found that voice can change with the genre/sub-genre. I then I've found some not to my liking. I get emotionally involved in the story and just get carried away. Then, then I know.. WOW!

    Congratulations on another great release!

    Thank you for all of the hard work you have put into this event! It was so much fun and like many others have said I am going to miss it. BUT, I will be stopping by your blog again and again.

    I haven't read Jude Devereaux in so long. I have all of her historicals somewhere on the miles of bookshelves in my house. A really wonderful voice.

    And I can't WAIT to read Pleasure Me!

She was up to level 18. Well… you know the rest… I thought I'd try them and they are fun. I'm up to level 10. What level have you made it to? I'm probably behind both of ya'll now! Have you tried the holiday version of Angry Birds? It's fun too. Regardless, I enjoy the sounds of the birds chortling and grouching, but they drive my son crazy. Congrats again! I can hardly wait to read Pleasure Me! AND now I have to read the book you wrote about today too… Yikes!

    As for A Knight in Shining Armour…I'm going to have to peruse my shelves and see if I still have that somewhere. Unless I lent it to someone and then it's gone forever. I vaguely remember it, but know I loved it and would save it to reread. I completely agree about not overanalyzing a book. If I'm entertained and drawn in to the story, then I'm happy.

    Gamistress, I have movies that stick with me too. There's this one call the Pirate of Tortuga. I was a kid and I missed seeing the ending. I've YET to see that damn thing come back as a Sat afternoon special. Would really like to know what happened at the end cuz it was a pretty good romance. I guess I need to write my own pirate story!

  23. >Congrats on making it to release day!! πŸ™‚ Thanks for a fun month with lots of interesting authors or stories.

    I agree some books just stick with you with parts that quickly come to mind when you think about them. It's one of the great things about reading romances for me.

    Congratulations on RELEASE DAY! We just had a new bookstore open in town this weekend after Waldenbooks closed in January so hopefully they got in copies of Pleasure Me.

    Wanted to thank you and all the auhtors this past month – I've learned so much more about the writing process and characters of the authors I love to read. Your hard work was appreciated – not only in your writing but in presenting other authors' books as well!

  29. >Linda, I remember Brooks' SOS I thought it was a good book. Wish I knew where my copy was! I don't think I've read Dark Fire, it's in the Carpathian series tho, correct?

    Babs, I'm glad you've had fun here at the event! And I hope you enjoy Pleasure Me!

    Andrea, so glad you enjoyed Pleasure Me. And a lovely compliment, thank you! You're not the only one looking forward to IK, which scares the hell out of me!!!!

  30. >Woohoo!! Congrats and Happy Release Day, Monica! I read and really enjoyed PLEASURE ME. Such a beautifully emotional read. I wish you all the best with its release! And I'm looking forward to INFERNO'S KISS!

    I admit that I'm now intrigued by Knight in Shining Armor. Especially concerning the knight's exploration of the bathroom!

    My first Keeper book is Terry Brooks' Sword of Shannara. It's what drew me into writing romance because of how UNromantic and glossed over the 'mushy' scenes were. I LOVED the book, my first epic fantasy (and I mean epic just on the page count alone!). First Keeper book as a romance novel is Dark Fire by Christine Feehan. Intense. Hawt.

  34. >Sharon, Isn't is a wonderful book! As soon as I'm caught up it's at the top of my HUGE TBR stack!

    Mary, I'm kinda of sad too. I think everyone had a grand time

    Lindalou, I love that readers think of me as a friend. I can use all the friends I can get! And watch your battery on those Droids, the more content, the more the battery drains. I have to charge 1 to 2 times a day. Angry Birds is one of my downfalls. I should have known better because I was WARNED to stay away. LOL

    June, Thanks for the congrats. I hope Pleasure Me is a hit with readers. And you MUST try AKISA. I thought it was wonderful!

    Karen, I know how much readers appreciated the event because I got so many lovely emails. And come next week, I'll be able to relax for a short time before I get back to work writing something new. Not sure what!

    Laura T, I'm so glad you enjoyed finding new authors!And I hope you enjoy Pleasure ME.

    Margay, I think Devereaux changed the ending when it was released at a later time. I need to get a new copy and compare with my original

    Julie, If you enjoyed time travel, I can assure you that AKISA will not disappointed. The hero is made of awesome! And yes, I know how much you're looking foward to Cleo and Dante's story. I've only a few pages left to write and then I can set it aside for a few weeks before I read and make some pre-edits to my editors suggestions.

    Maria, I'm so glad you enjoyed the blog event. I LOVE Kate and Leopold. AKISA has a similar premise, but it's a little more intense I think.And I promise to work on taking better care of myself. I'm back on track again with my diet and walking. I think that things are on an upswing for me. At least for the moment. I'm looking forward to the next six months, as I'll be traveling, meeting with readers and working on a new book.

    Virginia, thanks for your lovely words. And Garrick is turning out to be a hero that readers are falling in love with. And we're in perfect accord when it comes to an author's voice. It's why readers love me or hate me. There is no middle of the road with my voice and writing style for readers. LOL As for honest, in the final interview I had for my new job, the Dean asked me what one of my reference letters meant by "brutal honesty." I said that I'm WYSIWYG. I tell you what I think, but hopefully in a way that doesn't offend. Although I'm certain my opinions don't sit well with some, including my family!!! LOL

    Kirsten, I loved the title too. I'm sure it's why I picked it up so long ago! You can still get a copy of AKISA at Amazon. If you can spring for the cash, get it. I know you'll enjoy it again and again. And thanks on the release and for coming to play here on the blog!

    Tarenn98 (April) I'm so glad you enjoyed the post. I'm so grateful to the authors and readers who came out to support me in this six week event. I originally planned just for four weeks, but I wound up with so many authors eager to participate it just exploded, but I think it was well worth all the time and effort.

    And yes, I remember Jude's terrible loss. I know people were so worried about her, and I can't imagine losing a child. Not true, I've imagined it and been terrified that it might happen, but the repreccusions….that's what I can't imagine. Thank you for your kind words.

  35. >What a great post.I know you have to be worn out with the goings on lately.I thank you from the bottom of my heart for this magnificent blog event and to all the authors who supported you this big undertaking.I have read a few of Jude Deveraux's book and have enjoyed them.Also,how could I not,she is from my neck of the woods.I was around there during one of the tragic times in her life(NC).She is such a wonderful person and author.I am also waiting patiently to get your book"Pleasure Me",hope to have it in hand in a few more days.This has been such a wonderful event with such delightful,wonderful authors.Good luck on all your adventures,from your growing children,to your author career and new job.May God Bless you and yours.

  36. >Ah, A Knight In Shining Armor …. One of my first romances and one that stuck with me through the years. Dare I confess that it was the title that attracted me to it?

    A great story though, it made me fall in love with time-travel! I borrowed it from my library. When I wanted to re-read it a few years ago the librarian, sadly, informed me that their copy went missing. So I never did relive the tale.

    Congrats on your release Monica!

  37. >Hello, Monica! The only thing more fabulous than your grand blog event is you! This has been a wonderful experience for authors and readers alike, but the hostess is the reason for the true enjoyment! I applaud you for making this blog event a reality while you were also coping with your real life, your work life, and your life as an author–Brava, Ms. Burns : )

    Congratulations on "Pleasure Me"! I can't wait to get my hands on Garrick ; )

    For me, the author's voice is the most compelling aspect of storytelling. A book that is written with great heart and love of subject doesn't have to be technically precise or word perfect. The subject can vary, but the passion of the writer will capture the attention! The more that I "gently mature", the more fun I have just letting go and giving the reins over to the author! It's a blast to be surprised and pleased by the new and unexpected. It's also a real treat to have the favorite and the familiar given a loving second showing. The pleasure found in reading always comes back to the level of the author in creating compelling charcters and interesting, involving story lines.

    Thank you for sharing so much of your insights into writing and storytelling. I also appreciate your unfailing personal honesty. You have probably touched more people than you'll ever know : )

  38. >Good Morning Monica! Thank you so much for this entire blog experience…it has truly been so much fun and I've enjoyed getting to read what your guests have written and enjoyed the give-aways. I have not read Jude Deveraux because I wasn't reading romance in the 80's or early 90's…but it sounds like the movie "Kate and Leopold" might have loosely been based on this and I loved that movie so I'll be adding this book to my list! Looking forward to whoever or whatever you do in the future on the blog – it sounds like you're super busy…just remember to take care of yourself too:)

  41. >Monica,

    First, thank you for a fun and interesting contest. It introduced me to some new authors and brought back some fond memories of historical romances I've read and loved over the years.

    Second, I read Knight in Shining Armor when it first came out but I didn't remember until you mentioned some specifics. The visual image of the knight in the bathroom is hysterical and I giggle just recalling how well it is written.

    Thanks again and best of luck with the new book–I can't wait to read it!

  44. >Oh, Monica, I truly hate to have this event end. I'm sure you'll be glad as it was a lot of work for you… If you recommend A Knight in Shining Armor, then I'll have to read it. It's funny you wrote about your DroidX. That's the phones my son & I both got about a month ago. They were a big step up for us… we had plain Jane phones before. I have found LOADS of YouTube videos that I'm planning on watching when I get a few minutes. I've sent an email to myself with links to each video so I can just click & play. I can hardly wait to read Pleasure Me. I can't decide whether I want a real book or a download on my new Kindle! Regardless, congrats on your BIG release day! AND on getting your taxes done. I feel like I've found a friend… love your Facebook posts. Thanks again for this blog.

  45. >Good morning Monica,
    I'm actually kinda sad to see this end. I've had so much fun coming in here in the morning and chatting. I hope you do this again real soon obviously I wasn't the only one that kept coming back for more.

  46. >Sigh. I LOVE A Knight in Shining Armor. Great keeper book. Now you make me want to read it all over again. For the 6th or 7th time. Thanks for allowing me to revisit an oldie but a goodie.
