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!

Love audio books. Hate bad narrators.
I really enjoyed the story. Lots of funny moments when the heroin constantly getting into trouble.
Anyone but her.
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".
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
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.
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.
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.
Not too bad
As I guessed
Need a different narrator . Almost quit several times. Accent was so hokey.
If you can get past the narration the story was not bad.
The Story was good. The retelling kind of hard to listen to,
Her voice was quite masculine even when reading female character's words. It was at times abrasive and hard to listen to.
Good story - read the book....
