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.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "So Romantic"

    Garwood knows her stuff. This book was full of action, war and romance. The male lead is so strong but so sexy. I hope I will be able to read all of her books.

    "Honor's Splendour"

    If you like a lot of fluff and a weak plot with lots of sexual romance, then this book is for you. It was not for me. I would have liked a stronger plot and a different reader. The title was strong and interesting, but the novel didn't do the title justice.

    "Okay story (so far), over-the-top narration"

    I have yet to finish the book, but I'll probably still plow through it. It's not very compelling so far, but most of that may be due to the narrator, which is the reason I'm writing the review before finishing the story. She is overly dramatic and completely throws me out of the story over and over with the narration. She even makes descriptive sentences cringe-inducing. Listen to the preview first to make sure you can handle her, because otherwise, the narration might spoil your enjoyment.

    "Love the story, hate the narrator's performance."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I loved the book and that was the reason I also wanted the audible version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the character development.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator made it hard to listen to the book, the female voice was horrible. I have read the book and was really looking forward to audible version but the narrator made it a difficult process, I had to stop listening to the book to digest the voice. It was really bad acting and the narrator made the story boring because she did such a horrible job. I would never listen to another book with this particular narrator.


    What character would you cut from Honor's Splendour?

    None

    Story
    "Sweet,.Funny, and a great Historical Romance"
    Where does Honor's Splendour rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I got a paper back of this book a few years ago, and never forgot it. I was surprised and happy to see this in audio..this would be a #1 historical romance for me..so sweet , and a little smexy.Honors Splendour will also put a smile on your face and heart. Great HEA.


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

    The Secret, same style of writing, and same author


    What about Anne Flosnik’s performance did you like?

    I would give a 7 for Anne performance.


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

    I felt both reactions and more


    Any additional comments?

    Worth a credit...Worth the cost...

    "Good book, but Darth Vaderette was annoying"

    When I saw another's reference to Darth Vader I laughed out loud. It was exactly my thought when I was listening to this novel - the more intense the scene, the more Darth Vader would have been jealous of the hissing stage whisper that turned what would have been a good listen into a comical gigglefest. She literally put the King of the Raspy voice to shame! (seriously.. there is no way to put it... I've never laughed through a sex scene like I did with this book - every mention of the word "her" sounded like a pained evil monster about to attack a fluffy bunny; it was just that out of place). I really recommend listening to the preview before purchasing.

    The humour aside, the narration killed what would otherwise have been a very enjoyable romance novel with a strong male and very entertainingly wrought female character.

    "WARNING- Horrible narrator"

    I don't even know if the story is any good since the narrator was so terrible. I was so distracted by how irritating her voice was that I couldn't concentrate on the story. The way that she spoke grated on my nerves. There were times that I actually cringed. Sometimes I just rolled my eyes. I had a hard time liking any of the charactors just because her irritating voice destroyed them. Two thumbs down on this one. The only positive side to this is that I won't ever spend any money on an audio-book again without checking out the sample and reading the reviews first!

    "Good Story...Awful Narrator"

    I think the story is a good one but it was spoiled in part by the poor narration. The narrator has an annoying habit of breathily dragging out the last word of certain phrases very unnaturally, especially the word "her", which becomes "hhheeerrrrrr". Ugh! I wasn't sure I could make it through the entire book for that reason.

    "Julie Garwood is Awesome ~ Narrator is Horrible!"

    I thought I would give Anne Flosnick another chance...unfortunately, not any better. Will not purchase another audiobook with this narrator, period.
