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.

    "Narration was not good. Loved the story though."
    What would have made Honor's Splendour better?

    Better narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Madelyn, she has spunk.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Flosnik?

    Davina Porter


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

    Had previously bought before and loved Julie's story but the narrator ruined it. Her voices were not distinctive enough for each character.


    Any additional comments?

    I would buy all of Julie garwoods books on audial if they were narrated better. I have them all in hardback and read them often. I am just starting to purchase them form my kindle too.

    Story
    "Good book, but Darth Vaderette was annoying"

    When I saw another's reference to Darth Vader I laughed out loud. It was exactly my thought when I was listening to this novel - the more intense the scene, the more Darth Vader would have been jealous of the hissing stage whisper that turned what would have been a good listen into a comical gigglefest. She literally put the King of the Raspy voice to shame! (seriously.. there is no way to put it... I've never laughed through a sex scene like I did with this book - every mention of the word "her" sounded like a pained evil monster about to attack a fluffy bunny; it was just that out of place). I really recommend listening to the preview before purchasing.

    The humour aside, the narration killed what would otherwise have been a very enjoyable romance novel with a strong male and very entertainingly wrought female character.

    "Good book"

    I enjoyed this book very much. The story was good the characters good. And the narrator did a pretty decent job. Got it on sale for 4.95 and it was worth it.

    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.

    "Annoying Reader"

    Ms. Flosnik has an annoying habit of extending the ends of words - for drama? - who knows - not much plot - basically sex scenes strung together with hard to believe events.
    Our hero never looses a battle - our leading lady charms everyone and turns the place upside down by cleaning up the place.

    "Good Story/Poor Narration"
    Would you try another book from Julie Garwood and/or Anne Flosnik?

    I have enjoyed three books by Julie Garwood to date. The first two were narrated by Rosalyn Landor, who is very good. I did not enjoy Anne Flosnik's narration, however.


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

    Honor's Splendour is reminiscent of Julie Garwood's other Historical Romance novels.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Flosnik?

    I would have preferred to listen to Rosalyn Landor than Anne Flosnik.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, if this book were a movie, I would definitely go and see it.


    Any additional comments?

    My only reservation in recommending this book is that I found the narration to be quite irritating. To be truthful, I couldn't stand the sound of her voice. I had to make myself focus on the story, rather than the voices. This book would be a great read, buy not a great audible.

    Story
    "WARNING- Horrible narrator"

    I don't even know if the story is any good since the narrator was so terrible. I was so distracted by how irritating her voice was that I couldn't concentrate on the story. The way that she spoke grated on my nerves. There were times that I actually cringed. Sometimes I just rolled my eyes. I had a hard time liking any of the charactors just because her irritating voice destroyed them. Two thumbs down on this one. The only positive side to this is that I won't ever spend any money on an audio-book again without checking out the sample and reading the reviews first!

    "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.

    "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.
