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.

    "Garwood Never Disappoints"

    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.

    "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!

    "OUTSTANDING!!!"

    This is only my second Garwood novel, but my favorite! The main characters are well developed, and Anne Flosnik brings a great deal of personality to all the main characters. I love her narration, and the way she brings Duncan to life! Good choice, and I will continue to enjoy this book far into the future!!!

    "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.

    "Hard work"

    It took me four trys to get through it and the only reason I did finish it was that it became a challenge.

    HORRIBLE NARRATION.

    A horrible narrator can really ruin a good book.

    "Intriguing From the Start-Good Historical Romance"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, for the historical romance crowd. I was afraid this would turn into a 1/2 man, 1/2 beast paranormal but am very happy to report it is not!

    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 captured...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.


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

    I am really excited to have discovered Julie Garwood. I am finding her unique among the "typical" historical romances. Although I didn't think 'The Bride' was anything spectacular - 'Rebellious Desire' and 'The Secret' are far from the cookie-cutter pattern that many in this genre fall.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I listened to this at 1.25x and 1.5x speed. At times that was a bit fast, but the narration was so slow on regular speed. Anne Flosnick is age appropriate-so many sound like a grandmother reading-just a bit slow.


    Did Honor's Splendour inspire you to do anything?

    I'm starting to open up to historical romances (have never had much tolerance) and authors like Julie Garwood definitely has me considering listening to more in the future.


    Any additional comments?

    The romance in this book may be a bit racy for the traditional romance listener. It is a bit mild compared to my other, contemporary, selections...a pretty good balance. Enjoyable overall.

    "Great ebook, horrific narrarator"

    Please skip the audio version and download the book on your kindle. You will love the text and story, but will despise the narrator. I enjoyed the book immensely, it is just a poor choice for a narrator.
