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.

    "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.

    "another action romance"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.

    "Good historical romance"

    An above average highlander romance book. There's romance, intrigue and fighting.

    Unfortunately the narrator almost ruined the book. Her male voices are horrible and she overacts the love scenes.

    "Good love story....with not much more"

    This book started with a bang fir me! Normally it takes at least an hour before I get totally into a book. Then the plot didn't really go very far.

    One minute Madelyne wants to kill him...next minute she is comforted in his arms....I wanted to slap her. Duncan seemed like a good guy to me...I wouldn't have had that much trouble!

    There was definately an element of mystery in the first part of the book regarding why Duncan really had Madelyne in his home. Then it was kind of anti-climatic when we found out.

    Anne Flosnik is a good female voice narrator but she completely butchers male voices making the males sound pompous and arrogant and you immediately don't like them because of the voice. Unfortunately she narrates a lot of books that I like to listen to. I have slowly become accustom to the way she does her male voices so I'm ready when I start a new book...but man its bad!

    There wasn't much of an intriguing plot. This book just wasn't very well developed overall. The banter between the main characters Garwood is known for wasn't really there either. The banter got better closer to the end so that was nice.

    The reader that just wants a love story ... HEA with no real bells and whistles to distract from the main characters romance will probably like this book. I enjoyed it and am glad I listened to it.

    While I enjoyed it....it wasn't one of Garwoods better Historical Romance efforts.

    "Abridging would be splendid"

    Slow, Slow. Slow story (lots and lots of redundancy). Seriously nneded to be an abridged version, and even then the 10 pages of action would hardly have balanced the hundredes of pages of sheer boredom. Anne Flosnik is a Slow reader, with an over dramatic performance, her voice was monotonous and not pleasant to listen to... of course the content probably didn't inspire her to read it better.

    I've been buying Audible books for a while but this book will make me look closer at 1) the author 2) the reader and 3) the reviews...
