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!

    "Formula Romance"

    All her books seem to be the same because they all follow the same romance writing formula. I really dislike this narrator and the way she read love scenes made me laugh and it was highly distracting. I did like the hero alot, but i'd say it's a better read maybe.

    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.

    "Worth Repeating"

    This is one of Julie Garwood's earlier novels and one of her best. II have 344 books in my Audible library from which to choose. In the past three years, I've listened to this well over forty times and still enjoy it.

    "Enjoy story, not narrator"

    Enjoyed the story. Narrator doesn't do well with male voice. Main male character sounds like an old man rather than the young active man he is in the book / story.

    "Really irritating reader!"

    This story was well below Garwood's usual. The reader was also very disappointing. Her growling was just irritating!!
    Garwood's other historical books and the readers were much better.

    "So frustrated!!!"

    Julie Garwood has written some of my most favorite historical romance novels. This is not one of them. This is one of those books that the ending just makes me crazy. I listened to this whole book for that? I feel like it took forever to get going and then all the good stuff happened and was rushed through and not explained then BOOM, the book was done. It also left a lot unexplained. While this narrator isn't the best I have for sure heard worse. There have been books that I have not listened to though just because I saw that she was the narrator. I just have to be in a mood for her. In this book she had different voices for each character but they were all the same tone and ....ugh it's hard to explain. Don't let this book keep you from reading anything else by Julie Garwood but if it were me I would save my credit on this one.

    "Love it"

    Love the story but would rather have a different narrator. Wish she writes more historical romance.

    "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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    he is so ordered and she is so opposite and full of fire.

    the conversations between them


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

    Anne Flosnik brings life to Jeffrey and Elizabeth.
