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!

    "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

    Story
    "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.

    "GREAT BOOK!"
    Any additional comments?

    If somebody had asked me what my favorite romance novel was before reading this book, I would have paused, given it some thought and probably mentioned some of my favorites (Lord of Scoundrels, Bet Me, Passion, The Bride, This Side of Heaven, etc) Now if anyone asks me what my favorite one is I would say without hesitation, Lions’ Lady! I absolutely enjoyed this book! I had always thought The Bride was one of Julie Gardwood’s best books, but this one topped that! It had humor, passion, banter, and heart. I was so engaged in this story that I was starting to vividly picture the characters in my head, and having a huge grin on my face all the while. Christina has to be my favorite heroine ever…she was funny, feisty, vulnerable yet able to hold her own. The interactions between Lyon and Christina have to some of the most enjoyable scenes I have ever listened to/read! And Lyon’s love for Christina was absolutely swoon-worthy. As soon as I finished it, I started to listen to it all over again. At first I thought Rosalyn Landor would have been the better narrator, but I must admit Susan Duerden grew on me and she did an excellent job with the voices. This book has a lot, a lot of whispering moments, and I think she pulled them off very well. I am just glad it was not Anne Flosnik (she ruined ‘The Prize’ for me). I digress. Get this book! You will love it!

    Yes, I am addict... I love books, I read and listen and just can't get enough. I do not like non fiction because it is too much like learning and I would rather dive in and be transported to a new world or adventure!

    "Excellent book worthy of your credit"

    This was a wonderful story full of romance, laughs and plot!! I love Garwoods books and this one proved to be no different. The narrator was excellent as Susan Duerden always is. I have to say I still think of one part in this book and cant help but to giggle again. I will listen to this one again I'm sure and so should you, happy listening.

    Story
    "A remembered goody."

    This was one of my favorite books when I was a teenager and I still enjoyed it. Although the narrator drove me nuts with her breathy voice and she was very high pitched whenever the characters raised their voices in an argument. If you are like me, then the narrator can be ignored and still enjoy the book. I sent Audible a bunch of request for books I would like to see on audiobook and this was one of them. Now that I am older and after listening to this book, I realized it was a little cheesier than when I was younger. I don't remember the heroine crying as much when I read it which is slightly annoying while listening to it. I still have good memories with this book and recommend it as a good romance. Now we just have to get the rest of the series on Audible which are; 2. Guardian Angel, 3. The Gift, 4. Castles.
