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.

Slow start but definitely got moving. Excellent historical romance as always with Julie Garwood. She's first class and so is the narration.
I have read several Garwood books, and even though they are quite formulaic, there is just something comforting about them. They almost always live up to expectations. However, the performance of this novel quite ruined the experience for me. I think Anne Flosnik did the best job she could, but her voice was not well-suited for this book.
I love Julie Garwood's books and listen to them over and over again. They are mixed with mystery and romance..This one is mostly romance with a lot of action. Fast paste and intriguing it will keep you laughing and crying. It is beyond good. I am not a big romance fan -mostly mystery but this one is really good. Well worth the money.
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.
