Publisher's Summary

In feudal England, Elizabeth Montwright barely escaped the massacre that destroyed her family and exiled her from her ancestral castle. Bent on revenge, she rode again through the fortress gates, disguised as a healer...to seek aid from Geoffrey Berkley, the powerful baron who had routed the murderers.

He heard her pleas, resisted her demands, and vowed to seduce his beautiful subject. Yet as Elizabeth fought the warrior's caresses, love flamed for this gallant man who must soon champion her cause...and capture her spirited heart!

    "Ugh! This narrator is on my 'never again' list."

    I like Ms. Garwood's stories. This one was no exception. But the narrator. Oh dear. I could barely get through the book.

    "The reader is irritating,"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The Narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Julie Garwood? Why or why not?

    Yes, as long as Anne Flosnik wasn't reading it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    How long can a person drag out the last letterr of the last word in a sentence? According to Anne, foreverrrrr and in a octave lower than the rest of the sentence. Had to keep rewinding to concentrate on the story because of the way she pronounced the words. Just plain irritating,.Herrrrrrrr owwwwwn wayyyyy ughhhhhh!!!!!


    Was Gentle Warrior worth the listening time?

    No, got three hours in and couldn't take the narrator anymore.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually write bad reviews, ( If you can't say something nice.) but I can usually make it to the end of a book too.

    the conversations between them


    What does Anne Flosnik bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    "Good story. Horrible, horrible narrator."
    What made the experience of listening to Gentle Warrior the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the story. Lots of funny moments when the heroin constantly getting into trouble.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Flosnik?

    Anyone but her.


    Any additional comments?

    Once again a good book almost ruined by a bad narrator. Also, I found it very difficult to "like" the hero. He was always so mean. There was too much shaking of the heroin which really bothered me. I was afraid the poor woman was going to get "shaken lady syndrome".

    Story
    "Gentile pushover"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the main female character had been a stronger person and not so wishy/washy. If the sex left a little more to the imagination


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It seemed rushed, like she just wanted the story done with. Anticlimactic.


    Have you listened to any of Anne Flosnik’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not. She did a good job her voice is pleasant.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    it was disappointing. Usually Ms Garwood does much better. Ransom is what made me give romance novels another try.


    Any additional comments?

    I really like Julie Garwood, this just wasn't her best effort. Usually her main characters are pretty fearless after coming from tragedy. I will purchase her books again. Every one can't get knocked out of the park every time.

    Story
    "Narrator makes this a difficult listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gentle Warrior to be better than the print version?

    No, the narrator does a pretty poor job. She has the potential to be great but she over does voices, very gravely or draws out a sentence by over pronouncing words. When she is just reading without much inflection her voice she is not half bad, it is almost easy to listen too, but for the most part she is annoying and very grating.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Hawk


    How could the performance have been better?

    Less inflection, less reading the male character like an old man and less over extending words.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Romance's don't generally make good movies.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is entertaining. I have been reading Julie Garwood books till she starting writing mysteries and loved them. She has a great sense of humor and can make some fun heroines.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Good book Annoying Narration"
    Where does Gentle Warrior rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed the story and the way the charaters were developed throughout the book. This is the second Julie Garwood book I have listened to. The Bride was the first and was narrated by Rosalyn Landor who did a much better job that Anne Flosnik


    What did you like best about this story?

    I actually loved the story it had mystery, sex, murder and love, however I found difficult to get involved because of the performance...


    What didn’t you like about Anne Flosnik’s performance?

    I did not like Anne's performance at all. Anne Flosnik is too overly dramatic in her performances. The male voices in particular were terrible.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Anne Flosnik is too overly dramatic performance


    Any additional comments?

    Anne Flosnik needs a coach or someone to listen to her voice before the book is released.

    "I Liked It!"

    This book has all the elements that make up a good Historical Romance story, although the sexual and arguing scenes were a little over the top for me.

    I thought Ann Flosnik did an excellent job. In my opinion she's a good actress and I can't understand anyone giving her negative reviews. Her ability to change her voice, accurately portraying the different characters each time they speak, is truly a gift. It's very hard for a women to sound like one man, much less several different men...and women. A narrator can make or break a story, and Ann Fosnik's performance makes this story.

    "Glad I started with This Book!"

    I am new to Julie Garwood books and I am so glad I started with Gentle Warrior. It is a warm love story with an engaging story line. I plan to listen to it over and over again several times a year. I will also look into more of her stories.
