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.

    Story
    "My favorite book ruined by the narrator"
    What would have made Honor's Splendour better?

    A different narrator


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is my absolute favorite book, I have read it at least a dozen times, it is simple and romantic.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I would listen to it on one of my long drives. But the narrator is horrible. Her voice is gruff and over exaggerated. When she speaks as Madelyne she sounds fine, but the rest of the reading is obnoxious.


    Any additional comments?

    I have also listened to The Bride, but Julie Garwood, and that narrator is magnificent. I really enjoyed that listening and could not wait to be able to listen again. It is a shame to have such a great read ruined by this narrator.

    "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.

    The lady Madelaine, she had the innocence, and the courage of her convictions and she changed things in her life and that of others with ease while still keeping her innocence.


    Which character – as performed by Anne Flosnik – was your favorite?

    Lady Madelaine


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Lady Madelaine set the lord free and warmed his frozen feet.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.
