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 love Julie Garwood books. This one my pick of them all. The main characters are funny and delightful. The story is multi layered and never boring even after listening to it several times.
Christian, musician (piano & guitar), singer (Aussie, NZ, Country & Gospel), love nature, animal rescue primarily dogs in my case. Love God!
The narration was so awful I almost couldn't finish! Don't waste your time or money! Avoid Anne Flosnik as a narrator!
The premise and characters were charming. The reader's male voices were horrible; her overall inflections weren't suited to the situations. I would love to listen again with a different performer.
This was a wonderful and enjoyable story. Really enjoy Julie Garwood books so entertaining you don't want them to end.
A different narrator
This is my absolute favorite book, I have read it at least a dozen times, it is simple and romantic.
I would listen to it on one of my long drives. But the narrator is horrible. Her voice is gruff and over exaggerated. When she speaks as Madelyne she sounds fine, but the rest of the reading is obnoxious.
I have also listened to The Bride, but Julie Garwood, and that narrator is magnificent. I really enjoyed that listening and could not wait to be able to listen again. It is a shame to have such a great read ruined by this narrator.
Read the book. Madelyn's voice sounds much better in your head than this narrator. She draws one syllable and makes it three. How could they ruin it that way. Who chose this person it read it.
Yes, it had all the right stuff fair maidens, honorable heroes. dastardly villains, and many surprises.
The lady Madelaine, she had the innocence, and the courage of her convictions and she changed things in her life and that of others with ease while still keeping her innocence.
When Lady Madelaine set the lord free and warmed his frozen feet.
In search of the next great Cindarella story
The bones of the store had good intentions, however, she poured it on too much on some point going over the top to the unbelievable
I did finish it but I did fast forward over some parts
I thing you either love or hate Julie Garwood, this is my second book I tried of hers.... I am now hanging up my hat.
