Overview

Honor's Splendour by Julie Garwood

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.

My all time favorite book....I have reread this dozen of times!!!!!!

This book ties only one other book (Princess, Galen Foley) as the best book I have ever read!! I give it 10 stars not just 5! I still have yet to read a book that had such thrill and adventure from the very beginning. I could not put it down!! I love the whole 'captive/protector' thing in love stories. No matter what book I pick up, I always compare it to this one and I have read A LOT of romance novels. I plan on reading this book over and over and over again during my lifetime. If you want a love story that stands on its own with a great plot and spell-binding adventure, this is the one. A true classic and a keeper. Thank you, thank you, thank you Julie Garwood for writing such a fantastic novel!!

I've loved Julie Garwood for some time and I had read all of her books carried by my library.  When I saw this one at my eLibrary, I jumped at the opportunity to give it a listen.  It didn't let me down.  The characters were funny.  Duncan's brothers really made me smile. Plus I love protective men.  Lady Madelyne was a bit naive but I loved how she stayed true to her morals and was consistent throughout the novel.  The side plots were entertaining.  I really enjoyed the narrator as well.  Ms. Flosnik did a great job with the different voices.  While the plot doesn't stand out for historical romance standards, the story is told quite well and I loved the characters.  For that, I wouldn't have missed this one for the world.

I've read several of Julie's novels and this is one of the best....just when you think it's predictable she suprises you once again. There are no boring parts like some authors have in great books seemingly only to extend the number of pages. Every chapter of "Honors" I give 5 stars!!

I don't necessarily bother all that much about historical accuracies in historcal romances. I care about my own enjoyment of the book and my affection for the characters. Unfortunately, I find myself hard pressed to finish Honour's Splendor after quite a few chapters in, mostly because of my dislike of the heroine (and I truly give a lot of them the benefit of the doubt initially). I find the heroine courageous (and I do love heroines with spunk), but heroines that aren't too bright frustrate me to no end because of their lack of wit in crucial moments. After suffering through more than a few pages Madelyn just proves over and over how frustrating she can be. I DO NOT find her antics charming or entertaining at all. Rather the way she deals with Duncan demonstrate to me that she is a heroine with no backbone, will of her own, or ingenuity. There is no conviction to her resolve because she never follows through or cleverly improvise to make things work her way except for the moments when she try to save Duncan and the servants. I love heroines with a soft heart, but not if they are useless baggages that still somehow befuddle the hardened heroes with exterior beauty, lust, and ill-timed bouts of rudeness. One example I'll give that annoys me about Madelyn's supposedly softheartedness but lack of true ingenuity and sincerity is when she sights vengeful soldiers on the trail of Duncan and his soldiers. Resolving to save lives and prevent a battle, she walks over to Duncan and wastes precious time trying to establish a "nice" conversation with him. Freak, lady, aren't you trying to save lives!? Why not just blurt the life-saving news out so they'll have time to deal with it or escape? To make it worse, after Duncan blatantly ignores her she does not even cuss him out saying she has important information that could save the arrogant jerk's life so it'd be in his best interest to listen. No, she just has to act cute and kick him even though prior experience should tell her it'd do her no good. Then after gaining his attention she very "nicely" takes him aside away from his soldiers to explain, as if her news is confidential information that can in no way benefit his men. The whole situation had me wanting to ditch her. Cussing Duncan out would've done the job of gaining his attention as well as a cute kick to his knee, but I guess Madelyn shows she has a violent disposition when angry that can't be excused as self-defense or saving someone's life. Julie Garwood does not impress me. I loved The Wedding and Brenna, but this one is far from a favorite. I probably won't finish, even though I usually give characters time to redeem themselves. Since my reading friends are extreme Garwood fans I will see what they think of it.
