A beautiful story – Set in the medieval times, it’s about a baron seeking revenge for his sister’s rape. For me, Julie Garwood is just one of those comfort authors whose good or even just OK work still surpasses that of some other authors even on their best days. I liked both characters and how they interated together. Links My LibraryThing Library. The same can jylie said for the men of her novels.

In totally inappropriate situations, Gilard, Edmond, and Gerald shout in anger, when there has been little to no provocation. I’m picky, I guess! Many of those characters could, and should, have been eliminated. It is after all a thirty years old blockbuster romance for the great mass of readers.

He was so arrogant and sure of himself and he commanded things of Madelyne, rather than asking things of her.

Synopsis – Julie Garwood

Her heroines are child-like and their behavior is fairly absurd to me. Knowing it will take a long time for Duncan to freeze to death and not wanting to do the same themselves, the soldiers head inside the keep, leaving Duncan alone. Since Duncan’s men are hiding outside waiting to storm the castle walls, he is quite unconcerned about his predicament, but his nonchalance about the situation disconcerts Louddon’s men who are already superstitious about the man rumored to be a wolf.

While waiting for the next book in the series to come out, I spend a lot of time gqrwood books and posting my reviews on them.

Baron Duncan of Wexton entered the castle of Baron Louddon under a flag of truce, but he was not surprised to be taken captive, stripped of his clothes, tied to a pole, and left to die in the bitter cold.


He did force her to marry him, but it was for her protection – among other reasons, like his yet-unprofessed love for her and his desire do bed her ; – and he never meant to hurt or harm her in any way. This was so sweet. The longer Madelyne spends as Duncan’s agrwood though, the more she comes to realize that she finally feels safe and in spite of being too stubborn to admit it at first, she really doesn’t want to leave the security of his fortress.

Juliw was at this point that I really warmed up to both characters a lot more and ended up liking them both quite well. There are several things that kept Honor’s Splendour from the very top of my favorites list.

This review, and all my reviews, comes from my blog – Romantic Rose’s Bookshelf http: Men shouldn’t get props for treating people like humans, but I have to give it to the character Garwood created. No one kills her, or moves her out of the way, and the servants go free, owing their lives to the wonderful Madelyne.

Desert Isle Keeper

Today, her name appears regularly on the bestseller lists of every major publication in the country, and her books are translated into dozens of languages around the world. However, she never does, not even once. I was so wrong to judge them! When Duncan’s forces raze Louddon’s castle and Duncan declares that Madelyne now belongs to him and is going with him, she is rather put out that her plans for escape have been foiled. Duncan was also what I’ve come to expect from a Garwood’s hero: And I did mostly.

There are so many romance novel heroines who make the unrealistic jump from timid virgin to instant sex-kitten, so this element of the story was greatly appreciated. Loved the heroine so much!!!
