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.

    "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.

    "Really irritating reader!"

    This story was well below Garwood's usual. The reader was also very disappointing. Her growling was just irritating!!
    Garwood's other historical books and the readers were much better.

    "So frustrated!!!"

    Julie Garwood has written some of my most favorite historical romance novels. This is not one of them. This is one of those books that the ending just makes me crazy. I listened to this whole book for that? I feel like it took forever to get going and then all the good stuff happened and was rushed through and not explained then BOOM, the book was done. It also left a lot unexplained. While this narrator isn't the best I have for sure heard worse. There have been books that I have not listened to though just because I saw that she was the narrator. I just have to be in a mood for her. In this book she had different voices for each character but they were all the same tone and ....ugh it's hard to explain. Don't let this book keep you from reading anything else by Julie Garwood but if it were me I would save my credit on this one.

    "Love it"

    Love the story but would rather have a different narrator. Wish she writes more historical romance.

    Story
    "Gentile pushover"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the main female character had been a stronger person and not so wishy/washy. If the sex left a little more to the imagination


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It seemed rushed, like she just wanted the story done with. Anticlimactic.


    Have you listened to any of Anne Flosnik’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not. She did a good job her voice is pleasant.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    it was disappointing. Usually Ms Garwood does much better. Ransom is what made me give romance novels another try.


    Any additional comments?

    I really like Julie Garwood, this just wasn't her best effort. Usually her main characters are pretty fearless after coming from tragedy. I will purchase her books again. Every one can't get knocked out of the park every time.

    "Gentle Warrior"
    What did you love best about Gentle Warrior?

    I truely enjoyed the story. The book kept you guessing as to what the outcome might be.


    What other book might you compare Gentle Warrior to and why?

    The Bride - as I feel why they are similar they are also totally different in the story line.


    What about Anne Flosnik’s performance did you like?

    I just truely enjoy Anne Flosnik in all audio books that I've come across


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

    yes, but didn't have time!


    Any additional comments?

    I just enjoy all of Julie Garwood's writings.

    "Good story... DROP THE HORRIBLE READ"
    Would you try another book from Julie Garwood and/or Anne Flosnik?

    ONLY if you drop the performer reading...


    What did you like best about this story?

    I actually loved the story however could not get involved because of the performance...


    How could the performance have been better?

    There is adding drama to reading which is effective then.... the other side...the dark side of OVER DOING IT WHICH DISTRACTS FROM THE STORY...


    Do you think Gentle Warrior needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Sure... JUST GET RID OF AND OR COACH THE PERFORMANCE OF THE READ

    "Julie Garwood has better"

    You will find these characters basically repeated in Garwood's The Prize and The Bride, except their stories are more interesting than Gentle Warrior's. It feels like she wrote this book and later improved upon it.
