I did plan to take a little longer to listen to this one I can’t help but swoon when the big tough hero comes to realise that the temptress he kidnapped has the power to bring him to his knees.
Duncan and Madelyn’s love story was one of the first romance books I read as a teenager. Julie Garwood is still one of my favouritist historical romance authors and it broke my heart that she kulie longer writes splebdor.
I like her contemporary romanc I did plan to take a little longer to listen to this one The audio was good but the narrator’s voice could get a little annoying sometimes.
I originally planned to take a little longer listening to this one but once I started, I just couldn’t stop. I highly recommend this audio. This was a re-read of one of julje favourite Julie Garwood historical romances. Whenever I think of this story I always remember it for the beautiful beginning when the heroine warms the feet of the hero.
Julie Garwood’s stories make me want to step back in time to meet a gallant hero who will lift me on to his horse, tuck my head under his chin and protect me from all dangers. This story is about a woman who has lived a life of fear from her abusive brother. Madelyn was sent away when she was younger to live with her elderly uncle who was a priest. In this time she was taught to read and enjoyed wonderful stories about characters including Odysseus.
When she was forced to return to her brother she would remember the stories and retreat into her mind and imagine Odysseus would watch over her and protect her.
I think she wished to have her own Odysseus. When Duncan, the hero, has his feet warmed by a lady trying to save him, he was shocked to realise that she was the lady he planned to kidnap.
After Duncan’s men attack the fortress, he decides to keep Madelyn and take her home with him.
I don’t want to give away the whole story, so I’ll honof that this was the start of a connection that grew between them. The story is filled with passion, intrigue and excitement that kept me riveted from the beginning to the end. This is one hoor my favourite historical romances and Julie Garwood is a legend in this genre.
I think I will have to start including a weekly re-read of some of my Favourites View all 23 comments. Anyone who loves historical romance. I have to say, I have yet to read a Julie Garwood novel that I don’t love, but there was something special about Honor’s Splendour that makes it stand out in my mind and has made it one of my favorite reads. Garwood’s books feature women who, though they might not know it at the time, are strong, honorable, compassionate and very wise. Watching them come into their own is such an enjoyable experience.
The same can be said for the men of her novels. They are usually gruff, arrogant and very honlr in I have to say, I have yet to read a Julie Garwood novel that I don’t love, but there was something special about Honor’s Splendour that makes it stand out in my mind and has made it one of my favorite reads. They are usually gruff, arrogant and very set in their ways, but at all times honorable.
Now to Honor’s Splendour. Seeking revenge, Baron Duncan of Wexton sets out to kidnap Madelyne, the sister of Baron Louddon, the man responsible for the brutal attack on Duncan’s sister, Adela. What happens though, he could never have anticipated. Madelyne became the captor, holding Duncan’s heart as no other woman ever has.
Madelyne spent years being abused by her brother,Baron Louddon, and has finally had enough. Packing her few belongings, she waits for the right moment to leave her brother’s fortress, garwoor to find safety in Scotland at the home of her cousin. As she awaits the moment she can escape, she spots Baron Duncan, stripped of clothing and tied to a post in the courtyard, left to die in the freezing night.
Unaware of Duncan’s purpose for being there–to kidnap her, she risks all to set him free, to protect him from her brother. What she didn’t realize was that Duncan didn’t need rescuing. Allowing himself to be captured was part of the plan for he and his men to gain access to the fortress, and Gaarwood, herself. Freeing Duncan yonor his bindings and gathering his clothes, Madelyne takes him into the visting priests honr behind the chapel where one simple act of compassion splebdor change her life–and his, forever.

Wonderful writing – Julie Garwood has an amazing style. I just love reading her books, and this one wasn’t dissapointing. How ever good the stroy was, how great the characters were, the best thing in this whole book was the writing. I don’t gwrwood the last time I jus What will you get if you decide to read this book?
I don’t remember the last time I just enjoyed simply reading the book, the sentences, the dialogue. She does it marvelously. A beautiful story – Set in the medieval times, it’s about a baron seeking revenge for his sister’s rape. He plans to kidnap the sister of his enemy, you know, an eye for an eye. Hojor begins with Duncan, The Wolf, being tied to a post in the middle of winter left to freeze to death. Madelyne the sister of his enemy plans to escape her brother, and save the poor warrior from certain death.
Not knowing he is in fact there just for her, she frees him and ends up being captured. Duncan immediately sees she is nothing like her brother, and Madelyne learns to trust him and eventually they fall in love well duh XD. A fierce warrior for a hero – almost all JG’s heroes are alike – huge, musceled, fierce and brave warriors, and Duncan hojor no different: He’s alpha as any alpha can be, considering in what time period he’s in lol. They know him as The Wolf, he is feared by all, his enemies never wish to see his face in battle for they would not come out of it alive.
Anyway, from the moment Madelyne “saved” him and warmed his feet when he couldn’t stand, he knew she would belong to him. Uulie herione honlr has great character – I barwood read novels just for the male ch.
Madeline was so great! Even though I doubt that ladies behaved like that in those times, it garwoov great to read: She has a fierce temper, and is not affraid to stand up to Duncan, when even his soldiers would cower in fear of him. She’s so funny and clueless about it, that makes her even more funny XD At garsood time, after she kisses Duncan, she jklie up in tears and apologized for taking advantage of him when he promised her he would not touch her XDXD Yeah she’s just great: Total and utter enjoyment – All of these things together make a great read, if you’re not opposed to the medieval period you’ll really like this:
