Publisher's Summary

In feudal England, Elizabeth Montwright barely escaped the massacre that destroyed her family and exiled her from her ancestral castle. Bent on revenge, she rode again through the fortress gates, disguised as a healer...to seek aid from Geoffrey Berkley, the powerful baron who had routed the murderers.

He heard her pleas, resisted her demands, and vowed to seduce his beautiful subject. Yet as Elizabeth fought the warrior's caresses, love flamed for this gallant man who must soon champion her cause...and capture her spirited heart!

©1990 Julie Garwood (P)2010 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

    "Ugh! This narrator is on my 'never again' list."

    I like Ms. Garwood's stories. This one was no exception. But the narrator. Oh dear. I could barely get through the book.

    "The reader is irritating,"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The Narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Julie Garwood? Why or why not?

    Yes, as long as Anne Flosnik wasn't reading it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    How long can a person drag out the last letterr of the last word in a sentence? According to Anne, foreverrrrr and in a octave lower than the rest of the sentence. Had to keep rewinding to concentrate on the story because of the way she pronounced the words. Just plain irritating,.Herrrrrrrr owwwwwn wayyyyy ughhhhhh!!!!!


    Was Gentle Warrior worth the listening time?

    No, got three hours in and couldn't take the narrator anymore.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually write bad reviews, ( If you can't say something nice.) but I can usually make it to the end of a book too.

    "Disapointed"

    I enjoy the book but it is frustrating trying to listen to the book with the narrator constantly sounding like a buffoon. She is unable to give any credit or depth to the characters when she is trying to do male voices. It sounds like a joke. If she wants to do a dramitised version then she should get a male to do the male voices or just read the book straight.

    "Narrator makes this a difficult listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gentle Warrior to be better than the print version?

    No, the narrator does a pretty poor job. She has the potential to be great but she over does voices, very gravely or draws out a sentence by over pronouncing words. When she is just reading without much inflection her voice she is not half bad, it is almost easy to listen too, but for the most part she is annoying and very grating.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Hawk


    How could the performance have been better?

    Less inflection, less reading the male character like an old man and less over extending words.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Romance's don't generally make good movies.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is entertaining. I have been reading Julie Garwood books till she starting writing mysteries and loved them. She has a great sense of humor and can make some fun heroines.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Good book Annoying Narration"
    Where does Gentle Warrior rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed the story and the way the charaters were developed throughout the book. This is the second Julie Garwood book I have listened to. The Bride was the first and was narrated by Rosalyn Landor who did a much better job that Anne Flosnik


    What did you like best about this story?

    I actually loved the story it had mystery, sex, murder and love, however I found difficult to get involved because of the performance...


    What didn’t you like about Anne Flosnik’s performance?

    I did not like Anne's performance at all. Anne Flosnik is too overly dramatic in her performances. The male voices in particular were terrible.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Anne Flosnik is too overly dramatic performance


    Any additional comments?

    Anne Flosnik needs a coach or someone to listen to her voice before the book is released.

    "Formula Romance"

    All her books seem to be the same because they all follow the same romance writing formula. I really dislike this narrator and the way she read love scenes made me laugh and it was highly distracting. I did like the hero alot, but i'd say it's a better read maybe.

    "Buyer Beware"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was not able to listen to this story fully due to the narrator. This woman was the worst narrator. I couldn't even focus on the story because of how terrible this woman was! She is flat and you cannot tell what the thoughts and feelings of the charters are. It also sounds like she thought she was meant to tell a story instead of read one. It sounds like she gathered the children around the fire to listen to ghost stories. It was horrible and unbearable, and I love Julie Garwood's books. I will purchase this in hard copy to find out what the story is.

    "Enjoy story, not narrator"

    Enjoyed the story. Narrator doesn't do well with male voice. Main male character sounds like an old man rather than the young active man he is in the book / story.
