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.

    "Annoying Reader"

    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.

    "Good Story/Poor Narration"
    Would you try another book from Julie Garwood and/or Anne Flosnik?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Honor's Splendour to and why?

    Honor's Splendour is reminiscent of Julie Garwood's other Historical Romance novels.


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

    I would have preferred to listen to Rosalyn Landor than Anne Flosnik.


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

    Yes, if this book were a movie, I would definitely go and see it.


    Any additional comments?

    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 NARRATOR IS H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E!! JUST BAD!"

    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.

    "Good book"

    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.

    "Save your credit"

    This narrator has such over the top narration that I can't even finish listening. The book seems interesting though. Too bad.

    "An Utter Waste of TIme"

    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!

    "Bad narration"
    Would you try another book from Julie Garwood and/or Anne Flosnik?

    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.

    Story
    "So so so so so disappointed"
    Would you try another book from Julie Garwood and/or Anne Flosnik?

    This was the first book by Julie Garwood that I've listened to, but I did have one in my Kindle library. I can barely stand to finish this book listening to this narrator there is NO WAY I would subject myself to her again. Half the time she sounds like Ginger from Gilligan's Island- breathy and overly dramatic. It is an auditory train wreck.


    What was most disappointing about Julie Garwood’s story?

    I'm not a prude. I like a trashy romance every now and then, but when a book opens with a scripture and quotes them within the story I have certain expectations. There are just too many "muscular thighs", breasts and throbbing groins if this book is attempting to be a Christian novel and if it isn't, why keep throwing out scripture? I keep thinking to myself. "So. Many. Words" she uses so many words to describe things that have no value in progressing the story line I keep thinking " why is she saying this-it's been said before." The Greek mythology connection is week and kind of silly. It seem so me to be more of a window dressing-an attempt to elevate the story to "literature". Finally, I don't think I get offended easily but it made me uncomfortable to see a victim of rape slapped and forcibly bathed- I don't care if it was by another woman-poor decision my the author to go that route in my opinion.


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

    Maybe I am a LITTLE picky because I am coming off a Diana Gabaldon/Davina Porter marathon-and they are two of the best authors/narrators today. This narrator is one of the worst in my opinion-just about anyone else could do a better job. I want to finish listening to the story but I find myself dreading putting my ear buds on.


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

    This experience was so disappointing I stopped and read "Saving Grace" on my Kindle and it was better-a little predictable but enjoyable to read. It makes me wonder if the author's style of writing is just better being read and not narrated. There are other books that I feel don't transition from written to spoken and some I enjoy more listening to rather than reading. I found a Lynn Austin book in my library that I bought a year ago. I hated reading it but I have bought four of her audio books and loved them all.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I was disappointed because of all the rave reviews I have read. She has a very strong and loyal fan base. The narration was a disservice to the book, but even reading the the one book I think she is an average author and not one I would recommend to anyone. I was expecting something along the lines of Laura Kinsale who writes interesting books that are all different in setting and story line.

    "Couldn't listen to this lifelong favorite"

    I know that listening tastes are subjective, and I know there are tons of romance readers/listeners who enjoy Anne Flosnik as a narrator. But I can't stand listening to her. The guttural way she does the men's voices combined with the overly breathy way she ends sentences and does the female voices grates on my nerves. In the future, I'll be skipping books narrated by her. Which is unfortunate, because she does the narration for several of my favorite historical-romance authors.

    For sure I would. Good balance of action and romance not a drippy romance but a fine accounting of the struggles of strenght and


    Would you be willing to try another one of Anne Flosnik’s performances?

    no, I really don't like shakesperian read drama, found the reading to be to over done with the extented him(mmm) her-rrrr etc. Detracted from the story line follow.


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

    I did it in one sitting twice.
