Publisher's Summary

In the feuding English court, gentle Lady Madelyne suffered the cruel whims of her ruthless brother, Baron Louddon. Then, in vengeance for a bitter crime, Baron Duncan of Wexton—the Wolf—unleashed his warriors against Louddon's domain. Exquisite Madelyne was the prize he catured...but when he gazed upon the proud beauty, he pledged to protect her with his life.

In his rough-hewn castle, Duncan proved true to his honor. But when at last their noble passion conquered them both, she surrendered with all her soul. Now, for love, Madelyne would stand fast...as bravely as her Lord, the powerful Wolf who fought for...Honor's Splendour.

    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.

    "So Romantic"

    Garwood knows her stuff. This book was full of action, war and romance. The male lead is so strong but so sexy. I hope I will be able to read all of her books.

    "Honor's Splendour"

    If you like a lot of fluff and a weak plot with lots of sexual romance, then this book is for you. It was not for me. I would have liked a stronger plot and a different reader. The title was strong and interesting, but the novel didn't do the title justice.

    "Sweet,.Funny, and a great Historical Romance"
    Where does Honor's Splendour rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I got a paper back of this book a few years ago, and never forgot it. I was surprised and happy to see this in audio..this would be a #1 historical romance for me..so sweet , and a little smexy.Honors Splendour will also put a smile on your face and heart. Great HEA.


    What other book might you compare Honor's Splendour to and why?

    The Secret, same style of writing, and same author


    What about Anne Flosnik’s performance did you like?

    I would give a 7 for Anne performance.


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

    I felt both reactions and more


    Any additional comments?

    Worth a credit...Worth the cost...

    "Okay story (so far), over-the-top narration"

    I have yet to finish the book, but I'll probably still plow through it. It's not very compelling so far, but most of that may be due to the narrator, which is the reason I'm writing the review before finishing the story. She is overly dramatic and completely throws me out of the story over and over with the narration. She even makes descriptive sentences cringe-inducing. Listen to the preview first to make sure you can handle her, because otherwise, the narration might spoil your enjoyment.

    "OUTSTANDING!!!"

    This is only my second Garwood novel, but my favorite! The main characters are well developed, and Anne Flosnik brings a great deal of personality to all the main characters. I love her narration, and the way she brings Duncan to life! Good choice, and I will continue to enjoy this book far into the future!!!

    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!

    "Honor's Splendor Was a Delightful Listen!""

    If you enjoy historical romance novels, you will love this book. I think it's fair to say that no one does it better than Julie Garwood. You will enjoy getting to know the characters she writes about. Like her other historical romance novels, this book not only features a strong-minded man, but a strong-minded woman. Garwood does a wonderful job of playing with the expectations of the time period she's writing about, and pushing at them just enough to make it neither totally unbelievable, nor completely unpalatable.

    Some previous people have criticized the narrator, Anne Flosnik. However in this book I thought she did a good job and enjoyed the narration. I listened to Gentle Warrior and thought Anne Flosnick was to over dramatic with that narration. I am glad I gave this book a try as I found this thoroughly enjoyable. It's the type of audiobook you don't want to end.

    "Good Story...Awful Narrator"

    I think the story is a good one but it was spoiled in part by the poor narration. The narrator has an annoying habit of breathily dragging out the last word of certain phrases very unnaturally, especially the word "her", which becomes "hhheeerrrrrr". Ugh! I wasn't sure I could make it through the entire book for that reason.
