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!

know it all
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.
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.
Say something about yourself!
he is so ordered and she is so opposite and full of fire.
the conversations between them
Anne Flosnik brings life to Jeffrey and Elizabeth.
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
It seemed rushed, like she just wanted the story done with. Anticlimactic.
I have not. She did a good job her voice is pleasant.
it was disappointing. Usually Ms Garwood does much better. Ransom is what made me give romance novels another try.
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.
Yes I have listened to many of her books all very gentile and good
Wrapped up well no follow up needed
I truely enjoyed the story. The book kept you guessing as to what the outcome might be.
The Bride - as I feel why they are similar they are also totally different in the story line.
I just truely enjoy Anne Flosnik in all audio books that I've come across
yes, but didn't have time!
I just enjoy all of Julie Garwood's writings.
ONLY if you drop the performer reading...
I actually loved the story however could not get involved because of the performance...
There is adding drama to reading which is effective then.... the other side...the dark side of OVER DOING IT WHICH DISTRACTS FROM THE STORY...
Sure... JUST GET RID OF AND OR COACH THE PERFORMANCE OF THE READ
You will find these characters basically repeated in Garwood's The Prize and The Bride, except their stories are more interesting than Gentle Warrior's. It feels like she wrote this book and later improved upon it.
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.
