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.

    "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.

    "A Beautiful Story"

    Julie Garwood is a very talented author. I have enjoyed reading most her books, and this one didn't disappoint. How ever good the story, how ever great the characters, it is the talent behind the pen that makes a good book GREAT. Garwood does a wonderful job with character development and dialogue, her descriptive writing makes her stories live. Her writing and Anne Flosnik's narration transports you into the story, it's as if you are watching it unfold.

    Set in medieval times, "Honor's Splendour" is about a baron seeking revenge for his sister's rape. He plans to kidnap the sister of his enemy; an eye for an eye--a sister for a sister. It begins when Baron Louddon has Baron Duncan of Wexton, known as "The Wolf", undressed and tied to a post in the middle of winter to freeze to death, so there would be no marks on his body. Madelyne (the sister of his enemy) plans to escape her brothers abuse, but first she feels compelled to save the poor warrior from certain death. Not knowing he is there to kidnap her; she frees him and he captures her. Duncan immediately sees she is nothing like her brother when Madelyne unselfishly helps him and warms his frozen feet with her own body. So, he needs to adjust his plans.

    Julie Garwood has a wonderful sense of humor which can be seen in her characters. Like the sweet, naive Lady Madelyne who want to save the world, keeps telling everyone that she is a quiet woman, but she is usually doing it at the top of her lungs....or in trying to cover over her disobedience she will say something like, "I have gone through an ordeal". It is not funny when I relate it, but it is funny and cute when penned by Ms Garwood and narrated by Anne Flosnik. I just love Madelyne's character.

    I highly recommend "Honor's Splendour"!

    "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!!!

    "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.

    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.
