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.

    Story
    "One of the worst book"
    What disappointed you about Honor's Splendour?

    Everything: boring story, fake nerdy lead female character plus too perfect and enduring main male hero. Madeline combined personalities of medieval Mother Teresa and Marry Poppins. Was there something she could not do?


    What three words best describe Anne Flosnik’s performance?

    Below average. Usually, I like her performance, but not this one


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

    no

    Story
    "Not crazy about the Narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Honor's Splendour the most enjoyable?

    Julie Garwood's books are excellent. I can't say the experience of listening to it was enjoyable. Its more that it's back round noise which is a shame because I have read this book twice before and it's a great story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great historical romance.


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

    Susan Duerden or Rosalyn Landor.


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    If you like historical romances or Julie Garwood, read this book. Don't listen to it. Anne Flosnik doesn't do it justice. Its the second Julie Garwood book that I've listened to with Anne Flosnik narrating and I've been disappointed with both.

    "Great story, horrible narrator"
    Would you listen to Honor's Splendour again? Why?

    I would enjoy this book with a different narrator. (Davina Porter comes to mind).


    What didn’t you like about Anne Flosnik’s performance?

    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.

    Very good story and fantastic narration. I always enjoy Anne Flosnik's narration. I can't understand the negative feedback people give.

    Story
    "Not great, but entertaining"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Julie Garwood? Why or why not?

    Yes, she writes well and has convincing characters.


    Did Anne Flosnik do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    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.


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

    Not likely


    Any additional comments?

    Some very steamy love scenes in this one. The author does not shy away from detail!

    Story
    "Adorbs!"
    What made the experience of listening to Honor's Splendour the most enjoyable?

    Anne Flosnik always does a fantastic job! The dialog in this novel was especially entertaining.


    Would you recommend Honor's Splendour to your friends? Why or why not?

    Sure - if they're desperate for a bit of fluff.


    What does Anne Flosnik bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She really brings Madelyn in all her clumsy, hot-headed, contradictory glory to life.

    Story
    "Love Julie"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Honor's Splendour to be better than the print version?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What three words best describe Anne Flosnik’s voice?

    Very ,very ,nasally!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No I can't I listen while I work and am interrupted all the time. I actually like the books broken into sections.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, I will eventually get all her books!

    "ho hum"
    Would you try another book from Julie Garwood and/or Anne Flosnik?

    I've enjoyed other Julie Garwood books. Don't know what happened here.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    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.


    Did Anne Flosnik do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    sure. the men were a bit off.


    Could you see Honor's Splendour being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    i wouldn't watch it, but i'm not a huge tv watcher.


    Any additional comments?

    yawn.

    Story
    "Romantic and Splendid"
    If you could sum up Honor's Splendour in three words, what would they be?

    Comfortable, Honorable, predictable


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Well, you have to love a good sex scene and there were several!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It pays to be an honourable person. Cleanliness is next to godliness!


    Any additional comments?

    This book was enjoyable mind candy. Entertaining but not too challenging.
