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.

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.
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.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
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.
Honor's Splendour is reminiscent of Julie Garwood's other Historical Romance novels.
I would have preferred to listen to Rosalyn Landor than Anne Flosnik.
Yes, if this book were a movie, I would definitely go and see it.
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.
The story is so sweeet and could be really be a fun READ but DO not listen to it you will be sooo annoyed. I am holding on for my life listening to this story just praying for the end. I LOVED Julie's other book THE BRIDE why oh why couldn't the narrator from the bride read ALLL of Julie Garwoods books. This women is bad. I soo want to get other stories but this BAD narrator reads the other stories so I will pass and read them instead.
Great story if you can get pass listening to the narrator SOOO SOOO SOOO Bad.UGG So BAD.
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.
This narrator has such over the top narration that I can't even finish listening. The book seems interesting though. Too bad.
This audiobook is absolutely terrible. If you're accustomed to the well-written, intelligent historical romance, you'll kick yourself for wasting your time on such a second-rate author. Her attempts at detail and imagery are literally laughable. I found myself laughing out loud on multiple occasions...and not because anything in the story was funny. Oh, and I can't leave out the narrator. The bizarre, over-exaggerated narration is truly this icing on this moldy cake!
I might try another Julie Garwood book, but not with the same narrator. The story was passable and I might have enjoyed it better if I'd found the narration believable. The voice of Duncan was awful and unbelievable and Madelyne sounded like a stuck up spinster.
