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.

Loved the book. Hated the audible

Read the book. Madelyn's voice sounds much better in your head than this narrator. She draws one syllable and makes it three. How could they ruin it that way. Who chose this person it read it.

as always a delight.

I don't think I have ever read a book by her I didn't like and this one stays true. NO matter how long ago she has written it it will hold true.

Honor's Splendour

Would you try another book from Julie Garwood and/or Anne Flosnik?

no

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The bones of the store had good intentions, however, she poured it on too much on some point going over the top to the unbelievable

Was Honor's Splendour worth the listening time?

I did finish it but I did fast forward over some parts

Any additional comments?

I thing you either love or hate Julie Garwood, this is my second book I tried of hers.... I am now hanging up my hat.

Liza Doolittle and The Queen Mother 11th Century D

This may be a great story, Garwood has been a favorite author for 15+ years. But the reading is terrible! Seriously, since when did Uppercrust and Limey Englishmen mix in the middle ages? Some stories can be pleasantly read without acting them out so poorly. I regret this purchase.

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.

Not crazy about the Narrator

What made the experience of listening to Honor's Splendour the most enjoyable?

Julie Garwood's books are excellent. I can't say the experience of listening to it was enjoyable. Its more that it's back round noise which is a shame because I have read this book twice before and it's a great story.

What did you like best about this story?

Great historical romance.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Flosnik?

Susan Duerden or Rosalyn Landor.

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

no

Any additional comments?

If you like historical romances or Julie Garwood, read this book. Don't listen to it. Anne Flosnik doesn't do it justice. Its the second Julie Garwood book that I've listened to with Anne Flosnik narrating and I've been disappointed with both.

Great story, horrible narrator

Would you listen to Honor's Splendour again? Why?

I would enjoy this book with a different narrator. (Davina Porter comes to mind).

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

This is a good book, but it was painful to listen to this narrator. Her voice was annoying and she had a way of dragging out the last portion of certain words that started to grate on my nerves.

Great narration

Very good story and fantastic narration. I always enjoy Anne Flosnik's narration. I can't understand the negative feedback people give.

Not great, but entertaining

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Although I appreciate that the lead female was not your typical character, I did find her annoying and weak. She comes across more like an addled old woman who is clueless about the world around her than a strong heroine. The continual lack of understanding of each other is somewhat forgivable as that is not that unrealistic with men and women, however it does wear thin.

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

Yes, she writes well and has convincing characters.

Did Anne Flosnik do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

It is hard to voice a strong male character as a female, so I won't fault her too much for that. Overall she did well.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Not likely

Any additional comments?

Some very steamy love scenes in this one. The author does not shy away from detail!
