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.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "Love this story"

    Most of her books are set in Scotland and England a very long time ago. They are always a sweet love story with a lot of fighting of the knights or lords. They are very romantic. She knows how to write sex scenes without being crude. I hope she continues to write for a long time.

    "i forgot"

    i love most of Julie Garwood's novels and when audible had their $4.95 sale and i saw she had a couple of books listed i immediately put them in my cart not checking reviews or the narrator out prior to purchase. the story was fine nothing special but it was okay how ever the narrator was/is so annoying and i had made my self a promise to never purchase a book narrated by this narrator again. well not only did i get this book, i got two of them by the same narrator and now i will have to cringe my way through the next book if i can. such a shame such a talented writer's books have to be ruined by the narrator.

    "How bad must it be"

    Even on sale it isn't, worth it. The prologue cheats the reader into thinking the book will be worth reading. It isn't

    "BORING YEAR IN THE LIFE OF NEWLY-WEDS"

    The short prologue was the only interesting part of this book as the rest of the story did not follow suit. The prologue described a mighty warrior who, right before a battle, saw a vision of a lovely female with a hawk and two wolf-like dogs. That was as interesting as they got. The rest of the story had the unimpressive hero/heroine meeting right away, falling for each other and marrying immediately. The next 11 hours were a repetitive account of the newly-weds trying to get used to each other and trying to change the many parts about each other they didn't like. The characters were never really developed, so I never had any interest in them. Besides, they whined far too much.

    The mystery wasn't really a mystery. A family was murdered before the book even began and the hero knew who was responsible, but wasn't naming names. I forced myself to keep listening, thinking he'd bring it up near the end. Wrong. He named the villain mid-way through so it was only by sheer determination that I finished this boring tale. The only part I enjoyed was the very last line of the book.

    Anne Flosnik is one of my least favorite narrators as she is too overly dramatic in her performances but this certainly wasn't one of her worst readings.

    "the same narrator as The Prize...."

    I was excited to see another unabridged novel by Julie Garwood on audible. I have read the book years ago and remember liking it. I downloaded it only to realize that it is the same narrator as The Prize. I don't think I can finish it. The narrator is bad. Really Bad! Make sure you listen to the sample before you purchase this audiobook.

    "Love Julie Garwood historicals"

    I've been reading historical romances for over 40 years and Julie Garwood has always been a favorite. Yes, they are somewhat predictable but that goes along with historical romances. I always enjoy Anne Flosnik's performances of romances set in feudal and victorian England. Even though it's slow in a few places, when placed in context, the slowing is appropriate. I don't expect a female narrator to portray a solid male voice as long as I can tell the difference, and in that respect, she does well. Her British accent adds authenticity to the read.

    "Disapointed"

    I enjoy the book but it is frustrating trying to listen to the book with the narrator constantly sounding like a buffoon. She is unable to give any credit or depth to the characters when she is trying to do male voices. It sounds like a joke. If she wants to do a dramitised version then she should get a male to do the male voices or just read the book straight.

    "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.

    "Narrator is the worst"

    After two tries at listening to books narrated by Anne Flosnik, I've decided that it's not worth the torture. Such a shame since Julie Garwood books are so fantastic. Her work is banned from my library. To anyone considering purchasing one of the books she's narrated, be sure to listen to the snippets provided by Audible. Most annoying voice ever!

    "Not a big fan of this book, ok story"
    What would have made Gentle Warrior better?

    It was very hum drum and slow, not interesting in the least.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Julie Garwood again?

    Yes, I usually enjoy Ms Garwood's stories, I have quite a few in my library.


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

    I love Anne Flosnik's performances. This was not her usual way with voices. she was very
    off this time. I understand that the Hero was an angry person but the whole reading was very off kilter to me.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I don't think so this just didn't do it for me. I would never recommend it .
