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 would enjoy this book with a different narrator. (Davina Porter comes to mind).
This is a good book, but it was painful to listen to this narrator. Her voice was annoying and she had a way of dragging out the last portion of certain words that started to grate on my nerves.
Although I appreciate that the lead female was not your typical character, I did find her annoying and weak. She comes across more like an addled old woman who is clueless about the world around her than a strong heroine. The continual lack of understanding of each other is somewhat forgivable as that is not that unrealistic with men and women, however it does wear thin.
Yes, she writes well and has convincing characters.
It is hard to voice a strong male character as a female, so I won't fault her too much for that. Overall she did well.
Some very steamy love scenes in this one. The author does not shy away from detail!
I get unreasonably attached to fictional characters
Anne Flosnik always does a fantastic job! The dialog in this novel was especially entertaining.
Sure - if they're desperate for a bit of fluff.
She really brings Madelyn in all her clumsy, hot-headed, contradictory glory to life.
No I don't care for and Ann Flosnik her voice is too nasal. I love Julie Garwood this is a good story. It's not one of her best, but it is funny.
Madeleine is my favorite female character. Duncan is my favorite male character. Madellaine is just tripping through life with rose-colored glasses, and Duncans just trying to keep her from getting hurt.
Very ,very ,nasally!
No I can't I listen while I work and am interrupted all the time. I actually like the books broken into sections.
Yes, I will eventually get all her books!
I've enjoyed other Julie Garwood books. Don't know what happened here.
I finished the book two days ago and can't even recall what it was about....... that's how much of an impression it made. I think breakfast had more of a lasting fond impression.
sure. the men were a bit off.
i wouldn't watch it, but i'm not a huge tv watcher.
Comfortable, Honorable, predictable
It was interesting enough to keep my attention but not too challenging to make me have to think too hard. The main characters maintained their stalwart integrity throughout.
Well, you have to love a good sex scene and there were several!
It pays to be an honourable person. Cleanliness is next to godliness!
This book was enjoyable mind candy. Entertaining but not too challenging.
Good story line with strong characters.
She is a favorite narrator of mine. Thee would not have been an experience without her.
Overall good read.
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.
I always enjoy books by Julie Garwood. I don't care for Flosnik as a narrator, but the story was an entertaining read for a fan of historical romances.
