Publisher's Summary

Christina Bennett had taken London society by storm. The ravishing beauty guarded the secret of her mysterious past until the night Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, stole a searching, sensuous kiss. An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wildfire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to possess her....

But the feisty and defiant Christina would not be so easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses. She dared not surrender to his love...for then, she must also forsake her precious secret...and her promised destiny!

The first book of a great series

Another of Garwood's best, this is the first of a great series. Lyon is a stirring and seductive hero and his unique princess wife is a very unusual and endearing heroine. She has an different background which makes for some very amusing interactions between the two. While Lyon remains the tall, dark and mysterious handsome hunk throughout, he is constantly thrown off guard by the princess's charm and unique perspective on life. And she remains an influence in book 2 as well, which is part of why the whole series is great reading. I flew through all 4 books.

Do yourself a favor and buy this book

This is my favorite book. I love the way it goes from the Dakota's in the Americas to England. this book is well written, exciting, funny and leaves you wanting more. the heroin can certainly take care of herself and is very clever. The love scenes are tastefully done and the narration is great. Don't skip this series. I don't know why her books are so affordable but from me to Julie Garwood, Thank You

A Captivating Start to a New Series..

I loved the experience of reading this book! I thought I had it all figured out in the first chapter but Boy! was I Wrong! Thank You Julie Garwood for a wonderful story full of intrigue, romance, and historical background threaded throughout till the very end. I can't wait for the rest of the series.

Lion's Heart

Where does The Lion's Lady rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is one of my favorite audio books. I can listen to this story more than once, which I have.

Any additional comments?

This book has so many good qualities, the story line, the characters, and the performance by Susan Duerden.It is a fun book to listen to. It a can make you laugh and if you have a gentle heart you may cry over the mother that who cared about making her young daughter strong so that she would be able to make it back to England to face her blood family. A very good beginning of a series.

My new favorite Julie Garwood book

Would you listen to The Lion's Lady again? Why?

Oh yes! I love Julie Garwood's books and my previous favorites were The Bride, Prince Charming, and Saving Grace. Somehow this book surpassed all my previous favorites by far. If I could give this 6 stars I would.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lion's Lady?

When Lyon comes home to find his shoes on the porch. I laughed so hard during this and the following scenes! And the puppy scenes! LOL

Don't Let The Beginning Fool You!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Has everything a good historical romance should have.

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

Yes

Any additional comments?

Don't let the beginning fool you. I must admit I almost didn't get past chapter one but forced myself. I didn't like the character voices at all at the beginning. I thought the men (especially Lyon) sounded creepy, not sexy and Christina's voice was like a baby rather than a strong young woman. Before I knew it I realized I was actually thoroughly enjoying myself. The story drags you in and soon you are rooting for Chrsitina, proud that she may be tiny and delicate but like a true lioness underneath the surface. This book will make you laugh in all the right places. It has everything a good historical romance should have. I got past my issues with the narrator and soon relaized each voice was pretty perfect for each charator. Rosalyn Landor is still my all time favorite narrator but in the end this one was pretty darned perfect.

Five Stars From Me!!!!

This was such a fun book. The story was great, the sex scenes perfect, not over the top and the characters absolutely wonderful. If you want to listen to a fun, romantic novel, listen to this one. And of course I must say, I love Susan Duerden's narration. She is absolutely the best with characters. Julie Garwood's characters are always different and extremely interesting.

Tantalizing tale!

I love Susan Duerden. She makes even the mundane book pop out into color! I also thoroughly enjoy Julie Garwood too. While she isn't my favorite regency romance author- she is definitely up there! I really did like Lion's Lady- and found myself laughing out loud at several times, especially with Christina's "adjusting" to English life. I recommend reading. Was it my favorite all time, no- not for a long shot. But is it credit worthy? I would say Yes.
