Description

This classic historical romance from New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood is a fan favorite—a beautiful lady needs rescue from a knight in shining armor, and gets an alpha warrior instead.

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. 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 usually enjoy reading books by Julie Garwood. The dialog is humorous, the plot and characters are charming enough to pass the time enjoyably. Most often I find myself finishing one of her books in a weekend. Honor's Splendour felt like it was written by a completely different author. The sentence structure is choppy and that makes it feel like it doesn't "flow" when you're reading it. The characters seem particularly one dimensional, there's no real antagonists, no seemingly insurmountable obstacles to overcome, just a bunch of almost cut-and-paste scenes haphazardly slapped together into some semblance of order with a very rushed "blink and you miss it" type ending. I swear it was written by someone else...
  • Besides Gentle Warrior, favorite Julie Garwood book!
